Eh don't share most ofyour views at all.
Personally I love dominion, and can't wait for it to go ranked.
The 'ol' lane combat follow meta' style of reg LoL, got old, but it was still fun. This is new, and fun. So it wins for now.
As far as 'watered down Arathi basin', This is more like a hyper active version of arathi basin, where mistakes can't be made, and, everything happens a lot faster.
Arathi basin was slow..... SLOWWWW.. and boring. This is fast and interesting. There's a reason why there are so many different battle grounds.. People got sick of the same old ones, and they got sick of them quickly.
