-Dominion is a fast paced game; when comparing the classic sr to dominion, their gameplays are really different (the rumors that say that dominion is fast paced & to win, all u do is kill people leads to why sr ppl say that dominion takes no skill)
-When you hit high elo, your team can get 60 kills on the enemy and die like.. 15 times, and still lose the game. It's about smart choices, not chasing and killing (death timers in dominion are A LOT smaller than the timers in sr)
-Dominion's map is 80% fog of war & obviously you can't use wards which makes it more fun to gank, be ganked, or set up for ambushes (exception of teemo shrooms etc)
-the summoner spells have changed drastically from when it came out making revive, garrison, exhaust, prob the best spells for dominion!
-The dominion games start off with team fights of 4 v 4 most of the time (4 go top, 1 goes bottom) which means that there is no such thing as laning phase unless ur bottom. Everyone gets fed so farming creeps is not essential (the bottom laner in dominion farms and mainly gets ahead of everyone compared to the ones who go top)
-Good basic tips to know is by reading Sauron's guide as he is the best of the best in dominion atm ~!
-In dominion, a lot of champions are not as good as they in dominion compared to sr (one reason being the fact that a team fight occurs every 30seconds and if ur ult is on a 2min CD timer, ur more or less in trouble --> Shen's ult)
-Windmill (the top point in the mini map) is considered the most essential in the game because if you do the math, the windmill (top point) is the farthest from the base which makes it the most challenging to get.
