Two matches into Dominion, first thoughts:

 

1.) I *love* this music - it makes every second feel so epic :).

2.) Gold seriously just pours from the sky - and a single character death seems entirely irrelevant :). Janna loves this.

3.) Lag ruins games worse than ever :(.

O_O...Oh .. My...GOD!

We just got out of a game where we started off "okay", but then quickly started getting destroyed. They had Yi, Akali and Annie - so they were everywhere they needed to be and ganking like nuts. For at least 10 minutes (half the match) we were consistently getting killed, and on the back foot.

But damnit if we didn't *try* to hold them back from getting a >30pt lead.

 

 

And then? Then my internet goes hickup-y and I'm dc'd for 2minutes. When I come back We're down almost 100 - i think we had about 175 nexus health or so at this point. Then we start doing a bit better...and then we score an ace :).

From there it's a constant see-saw battle. At one point I threw everything I had just to neutralize a point for a few extra seconds. And it was down to 9:4hp....but they re-captured the northern point (the windmill). And I was like - that's it, no way we can come back.

But our Teemo was there! And he was reclaiming the bottom-right point ...in the end, we won. 4HP:0hp. It was literally that close. God this game is awesome - in a very 'party-game' sort of way.

My Verdict on Dominion

  • PROS: It's fun.  Damn fun.  Heart pounding.  Victory is more about being the team with the better Strat than the team who won the laning phase, which I REALLY like AND THE MUSIC IS FUCKING AWESOME.
  • CONS: This confirms that I am spent on League of Legends.  As fun as Dominion is, it doesn't make me want to keep playing it over and over again the way LoL did when it was new and shiny.  I dunno maybe once we can organize 5-queue it or something but as of right now, it's fun - but not fun enough to play it over Rift or Guild Wars or any of my single player games.

It's... all right I guess. I didn't hate it but it's a bit too crazy at the moment since no one knows what to do. It's fun to try out different stuff to see what will work and what doesn't but it's kind of annoying at times when your team just kinda does whatever since no one is really sure what to do. Lot more frantic and hectic. Still prefer classic Summoner's Rift at the moment but we'll see how Dominion pans out. I imagine it's going to take a bit before anyone's really sure what the best tactics are and Riot gets things figured out to what is a good balance for it. Not to say it's unbalanced, it's just that, as I said, it's new and no one knows what's best.

Did pretty well with Skarner. His supression/drag alt makes it really easy to 1 vs 1 defend at a tower, considering they have to come into range. Plus he's got a speed/shield steroid.

Warwick was another champ I'd like to pick for it, given the smaller size of the map, his Blood buff when any enemy champ is at 50% health would give him massive mobility, plus good sustain, and he's a tough 1 vs 1 champ.

I hear Rammus is considered the most powerful champion in Dominion due to his durability and power ball's speed.
