Apparently Riot’s beta testing went better than
expected – the developer announced today that the Dominion game mode and
map are now completely, totally available, with no more restrictions or
limited-time windows to worry about. This new game mode is easily the
largest update to League of Legends since launch, and its official
release is great for everyone. Well, except Riot's server administrators. They're
going to have a long week.
“League of Legends: Dominion is the latest example of our
ongoing commitment to bringing you the best of the MOBA genre in new and innovative
ways,” Riot Games said in a press release. “You’ve been requesting new
battlefields upon which to test your skills, and today you’ll do battle not
only on a brand new Field of Justice, but in an entirely new and groundbreaking
The community has reacted well to the new map so far, with
the only complaints being the expected balance issues that come with a new game
mode. Then again, people complain about certain champions being overpowered and
others being underpowered with every patch, so these concerns are almost certainly blown
way out of proportion. So... expect cataclysmic nerfs in the near future.
