There is the Go4LoL post on there, which is a SR tourny with a huge response, and yet if there was a post about the Dominion tournament there would at least be a bit more response. If there was information about the NESL stream so people could watch the games. A simple thing that would give Dominion a nice boost. Or on a different tack, you could announce something like double IP week for Dominion. Theres two ideas I thought up, I'm sure the actual marketing people could do a lot better with their ideas.
Why should they do a **** thing? If the community really wanted growth they'd be doing more to make it happen and get noticed, but they don't. The majority of the community just sits around and *****es and moans about how Riot does nothing instead of working on ways/solutions to provide incentive for Riot to invest more heavily in Dominion.
I'm personally sick of all the *****ing and moaning, you know what we have a massive thread on the GD boards that was actually producing daily, visible results and what did the majority of the community do? Let it wither to the point where it's only kept alive by a small group still dedicated to the cause.
While the community that exists here is passionate about the game mode, for the most part they're also incredibly lazy about promoting it. Let me point out something vary obvious to you all one last time:
Riot will only pay attention to Dominion when the player-base is large enough, our player-base isn't large enough to be profitable as is and therefore Dominion isn't worth the time, effort, and money Summoner's Rift is.
The sooner you all accept this the sooner you can get off your arses and do something about it, because weather you like it or not, growing Dominion is up to the players and not Riot.
They took a calculated risk in making Dominion and thus-far it's failed, they will not invest more into Dominion until they have a reason to do so.
