A lot of us have stopped playing as often because of the lack of ranked. Draft is dead(still), and blind pick is frustrating because you can often lose at champ select.
For me personally, I generally only play with buddies now unless it's Wednesday and I am streaming. Even with my friends we'd rather play ARAM or the New Twisted Treeline that has ranked. A lot of the upper echelon of players have stopped playing unless it's to practice for tournaments.
I also know that for myself, once Steam releases its holiday sales, my play time on Dominion will decrease drastically. Hell, I still need to play Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, and finish Eternal Darkness and Psychonauts.
So i mean, we can turn your statement around and say its release is preventing population size.
