lol Good thing it works out in Riot's advantage eh?
Marketing + Making the servers ready for release.
Cause lets be honest with ourselves people, Dominion is a brand new shiny toy, we all want it right now and want to play it a lot but when you give a kid in a new toy he's usually bored of it within a week.
By limiting how much we can play it it remains as something we can taste but it's just out of reach. Our human nature is to always want more. Once we've eaten our full of dominion we'll be back to wanting more.
(Isn't psychology fun?)
