EDIT: Also, stop bumping your thread. The Dominion forums see much less traffic than GD so no need to bump so much. Maybe once a day at most...
People love using that reason but it will never be "balanced" people need to look at it in this perspective. Some champs have more advantages in SR some in 3vs3 and some in dominion.
Take starcraft? Zerg benefits greatly on smaller maps for rushing
TF2? Spy is at heaven on badwater basin/egypt.
I am sure you can do this in any multi-player game.
You don't need a fairy tail unattainable leveled playing ground to have a fully functioning competitive scene.
Its like any other game some maps benefit certain classes, heros, champions, characters more than others and the ban system will stomp on the champs that excel to much in dominion.(i hate banning)
That casual experience you speak of won't go away in non-ranked.
