Warning: the contents of this post may sound like a rant from a frustrated loyal Dominion player. Please read at own discretion.
Riot, whether you believe it or not Dominion is alive and its laughing at all the remarks that come from ignorant SR players calling it a dead and inbalanced game mode.
We're sick of the lack of attention we get.
Anybody can post anything "@Riot" in General Discussion with a small rant saying "I'm a paying consumer blah blah blah u guys suck blah blah" and 2 minutes later you have a red replying "Apologies dear sir, you are a valuable customer to us... "
Valuable customer? Well why don't you treat all your "valuable customers" the same?
Dominion has a large, active and loyal player base.
A very good example of exactly how low Dominion is on Riot's priority list is lack of promotion of NESL. Someone who is in charge of it has posted a change in the rules and community's reaction was - "wtf? There is a Dom tournament?" After a single forum post about it the turnout to the tournament increases tenfold.
^ speaking of NESL tournament why isn't the person who's in charge of it a Riot employee? Why don't you actually pay someone to do Dominion events?
* deep breath*
Ok apologies for the rant, I believe I'm not alone in this.
I look around our community and I see people that are dedicated to Dominion and put a lot of hard work and sweat into this. If you're having a hard time looking for current reds to be interested enough to moderate Dominion, why not promote these guys? TheFeedski, Nekrogen, WaterD, many others as well put a lot of effort on writing guides, making community websites or even just posting very elaborate replies on every single thread.
Waiting for the map to "mature" to turn ranked on? Oh please, why don't you actually breath some life into us by bringing updates? You promised an adjustment to bot lane, new items, ranked. Why not live up to the expectations?
I'll end this thread by just requesting 2 things:
- active Reds (who actually work internally on the game itself)
As a side note congratulations to teams +5, Yomi and TOEWW on first second and third place at this week's NESL. Can't say I didn't predict the outcome this week
