Everyone fights in the console wars! We don't like ours, but we sure hate yours! Its Xbox One versus Ps4! Let the bodies hit the floor! Let's throw down, come at me bro! Ill fuck you up, and your mom's a ho. Don't be a fag and blame the lag; These guns aren't just for show!
I hate junglers with the burning fury of a thousand suns.
I decided to get through my placements today. I play top and middle.
In not a SINGLE of my games did the jungler stop his bloody afk farm to gank a lane prior to the 15 minute mark.
My last game sported an Udyr that rocked 0-0-0 after 27 (!) minutes, Nevermind that the kayle on our team was struggling 0-2 mid. He just kept his happy farming saying "I jungle you go lane".
Nothing destroys a team like a horrible jungler, fuck that goddamned role and let us go back to 2-1-2 setups, KKTHX!.
If anything, I ban the fucker every chance I get.
But yes. Bad junglers are irritating, just the same as Supports how buy ward items at 20 minutes, midlaners who counterpick themselves, toplaners running teleport but never actually use it aside from getting to lane faster and ADC's who stop farming after 70 CS.
Well, when I am a jungler and people start to complain that I never gank, I just mute them. I am after all playing my game. And lets be frank here, some laners sucks, they push the lane, they got no wards, or anything at all, making a gank just a waste of time or just too risky. Then it is better to speed farm trough the jungle, then go counter jungle to make the other jungler fall behind.
I am actually tempted to reinstall this game again, been away from it for so long now. Checked both op.gg and lolking to see when I had my last match, and both had no data recorded x)

But it was rather right after the Marksman patch I believe.
Hook 'till you're hooked!
Riot's attitude is something I have a big problem with. They're the ones responsible for Dominion not being popular due to lack of doing anything to it for years. Now they act like the reason it wasn't popular has nothing to do with how much they've neglected it. It's a horrible lie too because ARAM is still a thing when you can queue for that whenever you want. Hell, people have accounts dedicated to ARAM only.
They're stuck in thinking that they're always right even if what they're doing is obviously stupid. They've never taken back a change once it goes live even if it's hilariously bad. They refused a sandbox mode because who knows why. They tried to convince people that chromas weren't a ripoff. They don't care about having a competitive esports considering they always release a huge patch that changes the meta right before worlds.
Honestly as long as ARAM is still fun to play, I'll still have LoL installed but I don't like how Riot acts all the time.
What? LoL Esport is huge, not sure where you are trying to go with this.They don't care about having a competitive esports considering they always release a huge patch that changes the meta right before worlds.
Also, why so much fuss about a dead game mode? Why would they even consider putting resources into something no one plays, and yes, 0.5% is no one. They are after all a company, that gives us a F2P game, so again - why put resources into something that gives them nothing in return? LoL is, and will always be about the Twisted Treeline map, that is the map that matters, ARAM doesn't matter, Dominion doesn't matter and the 3v3 map barely gets any attention either.
The thing is, Dominion was so different than the other game types, they had to do tweeks to it every patch if they wanted it to stay, so why bother?
Hook 'till you're hooked!
IMO i don't see a reason for them to spend time on dominion
LoL is and will forever mainly be about Summoners rift, everything else is a niche for the few people that enjoy it.
The MAIN game is on summoner's rift and it's what they want people to play, so why spend time on other maps and gamemodes that aren't in focus?
Yeah, why bother fixing a bug that put a huge dent in the dominion population? Better fix the normal draft queue bug bot not the dominion one!
Riot is to blame for this shit. People started losing interest in Dominion after Riot showed a lack of care for it.
Apparently some people still don't understand how business and companies works. And RITO after all is a company.
If "product" at this point doesn't attract enough interest what's better, shut it down and continue to work on/with popular "product" that brings more in general or to keep throwing resources and effort into semi dead "product" that doesn't pay off? Must be hard one.
Excuse me, are you saying something? Nah, you can't tell me nothing
Or maybe what you're not getting this is is not a surprise to any dominion player. I'm not angry that its finally getting removed, this was a long awaited event, I'm angry that Riot never fucking once takes responsibility for the fact they ARE the ones to blame for Dominion's death. People WERE interested in it. people organized the Dominate Dominion Tournies for it, and Riot was actually willing to help support those, but they didn't help support it in the way that we really needed it: balance and map support. It took them MONTHS to fix the dominion draft queue bug. People whine about not getting ARAM games, can you imagine how frustrating it would be if there was no penalty for dodging? People also begged Riot for ranked game mode, but time after time they gave us excuse after excuse for why they wouldn't (at the time) or couldn't implement it.
Even though people say it as a joke, I'm fairly certain that "What's Dominion?" is a common question asked over at Riot. The fact that Riot CONSTANTLY forgets about dominion was so fucking infuriating. When they released Luden's Echo, you had to wait until you either the full 3200 (or whatever the full cost was at the time) or 1100 to buy it. Why? Because oh that's right, they took Needlessly Large Rod out of Dominion. Who was surprised by this? Not dominion players.
Dominion has been the red-headed step child of League for years. And its Riot's fault. Why would players be interested in a game mode that Riot has consistently shown they have little to no interest in providing support for? I'm angry and unhappy over Riot's allowance of Dominion's slow death.
I don't know if Rito is lying. How can less than 0,5% of the population do Dominion and i always get 2min queues max. (on EUW)
Really don't understand.
I'm going to miss Dominion so much. I only don't play it because there isn't a ranked queue for it, otherwise i would only do Dominion.
And if i reach Gold this season i had intentions to go back to playing Crystal Scar...RIP.
ofc it's sad that they don't fix bugs for it but still, it's dominion, their focus is on the main map and main game that is summoner's rift.
i'm suprised that 3v3 even have ranked.
from http://www.riotgames.com/our-gamesLeague of Legends by player numbers: 67 million playing every month, 27 million playing every day, and over 7.5 million playing at the same time during each day’s peak play time. That's a lot of Teemo kills.
And Kaelwryn, that part about NLR is pretty much the point they should have removed that mode a long time ago. So I say again - why put time and efforting into something very few of the playerbase is playing? I for sure know that if I had a product, that was splitted among 4 themes (here that would be dominion, ARAM, 3v3 and 5v5), and one of those product had less than 0.5% popularity but still took my resources to maintain, I would terminate that product, and bring even more focus on the more important ones.
It is very simple, and Riot did the right thing.
And Riot never forgot Dominion, they had that Sands of Sharema or what ever that "fun" game mode was, in the Dominion map, to bring it some attention, didn't really help. Because the map is awefull to play in.

You're missing my point. I am not talking about them putting effort into it NOW. I am talking about the fact they did not put time and effort into it BACK THEN. The fact that Draft bug existed for dominion for MONTHS was a huge blow it. It hurt Dominion so much. We begged for a Ranked queue for SO LONG and they never gave it to us.
The fact they made use of dominion's map doesn't mean it was an attempt to breathe life into the game mode. Ascension made NO use of cap points, which are IMPORTANT to winning a Dominion game as you cannot win it based on kills alone. At a 100 points, kills stop taking away points and you can only win by either having more towers or by completing the quest (which requires capping).
Whatever though, you're clearly not understanding my position. As I said, I knew this was coming, almost a year to two ago. I don't want them to something about the mess they made of Dominion. I want them to fucking own up to the fact they fucked up, they allowed Dominion to die because of their lack of care. Nowhere in their announcement, did I (nor many of my friends who played dominion) feel like they actually admitted to fucking up. But yeah, I'm getting this AMAZING, and WONDERFUL icon for all my dedication to Dominion. :^)

Dominion had lots of changes etc. the first half year or so of it's release, but slowly went down to zero because it is not what they wanna focus on.
i'm can imagine that dominion was also made to test how populare other gamemodes could be and if they wanna invest time and money on making more like it.
and it seems to have failed, a lot of people quickly lost interest in dominion making the amount of people who play it small and because of that Riot uses less and less resources on Dominion.
