My first thoughts

Riot started the public beta testing of the upcoming game play: Dominion. The game consisted of 5 towers and each time races to control towers. Hum, well, I happen to catch an hour of game play, since each game lasted around 15-20 minutes, 4 games total, before the beta ended. Lots of great game play. Characters like Tryn, GP, Blitz, Kat, Heimer, are insane to control in this fast paced game. Everyone starts off at level 3 with around 1300 gold. Then, instead of earning 1 gold per second, you earn around 4-5 gold/second. So a character like Tryn will dominate in 5 minutes. They have tons of new items for all the characters and 2 brand new summoner spells which are cool too. In all honesty, I love this game mode. Fast paced, enjoyable, and short (no no, it's not what she said). Some bugs I did notice was: 1. Poison from characters like teemo and singed sometimes don't show up, so you are dying to invisible poison. 2. I couldn't use exhaust or ignite to save my life. A bug where i couldn't select any characters, which was annoying. 3. The main spanning area is only for your team, however, if the enemy team enters it, it doesn't do that much damage to they could easily enter, hit you a few times and run out. Have you guys gotten to play?

    I saw my friend play Dominion and he played Garen, he's pretty OP.

    I want to play Shaco and probably Poppy(AP) and i'm sure some other people will find other team comp's that are going to be undefeated.

    Just can't wait to play it!

    It's a really fun game when people stop being idiots. Using the mini map is key!

    Garen, Trynd, and now Evelyn are really OP! Specially Eve, that back dooring SOB! But i can see myself loving this when a premade group of 5!

    At first I was having fun, but then about 4 games into it I just lost the excitement. The game mode is interesting, the map is well made and introduces many new ideas.

    Something about the speed though just...bores me. I prefer the tactical time consuming 5v5 (since 3v3 is broken as can be); Dominion just lets things happen way too fast and it's not my cup of tea for most of the champions I play. Beat a game in 6:30 last night :L

    Holy fuck it's fun. Even if you're angry at your completely retarded teammates you still have fun.

    It's really fun,but it's too fast paced so I play it just when I have time for it,but not enough time for a 5v5.
    And I must notice that some champions are so op.
    P.S Did you guys notice the 1bot 4 top meta-game that is going on? :) I don't like it because if one more comes bottom you're dead :/

    Sure, but Windmill is more important to cap and then defend. You can easily recap your bottom tower.

    The 1 bot and 4 top has always been my idea. Makes sense. Or 3 top and 1 go across mid.

    Ill be honest I don't play dominion as much as 5v5. Unless I have 3 or more premade, its pointless. More and more idiots are playing and..../rant

    But some of these op champs need nurfing
