Dominion use to be fun and exciting when it first came out every body jumped in on it. So what happened here for it to fall apart???
1st. AFK's = If some one is AFK on your team for a few minutes, especially the first couple of minutes of a match it is an instant gg.
2nd, riot nerfed the ability to come back in a game (sorry capture the base is not suppose to be summoners rift)
Ok lets be real number 2 is a little harsh on my part. because of problem one and the nerfs to come back in a game. Problem one added with problem two makes coming back almost impossible.
3rd problem draft que for dominion is 15 to 30 minutes????? how is this even possible??? If it was summoners rift with this issue you best believe they would do some sort of live maintenance right away to fix it not let it be an ongoing issue.
Ok possible ideas and solutions
Problem one has a couple of solutions, If some one is afk they should face the same penalty as a que dodger the next time they go to play a game.
The game should be scrapped if some one is not connected and or have not left the base in the first 3 minutes of a game. Or the gold they have is redistributed to your team like original dota use to do if some one left the game.
Last possible Idea Undo a little of the nerf to come back in a game. This way if you are stuck in 4 vs 5 you can kill some thing.
Problem 3 I am not sure what the issue is here but if it is que dodgers, Just do what my daddy did just bring out a bigger belt to punish them aka longer waits to re-que or even a 24 hour ban from playing another dominion game.
AFK's in dominion need a much harder penalty because the games are short most people just wait for the game to be over and just go right back into que there has to be a punishment for this. Like the same for que dodgers
