Yes I now exclusively play Dominion

Some things I'd be particularly interested in hearing about would be:
-What are your impressions of the balance on Dominion? (If you're a serious player that's gearing up for competitive Dominion, I especially want to hear from you!)
-What is your biggest pet peeve about Dominion?
-Are there any players out there who now play exclusively Dominion?
-Thoughts from players who tried Dominion and feel like it just isn't their cup of tea. Are there any particular reasons that stand out? Fixable (wink wink) reasons?
While I feel Dominion isn't quite as unbalanced as some claim, there are some issues, both within champions and items. The main issue seems to be with carries, or specifically, hyper carries. Often times a team composed of champions that simply "scale better endgame" while find themselves head and shoulders over the opposing team, even with a bad start. A bad start can be made up for later, a team of super scaling cant be avoided in the end, unless the game is won VERY quickly, which is unlikely with competent players.
Another issue is mobility, mobility is powerful here but a few specific champions can abuse this (Rammus) much more than others. Others already talk about this a lot.
Items! Unless you play bottom,, you will almost never
see a full build, and often only a half build. I have games that end with em only having three items! Some items have nice halfway points that are worth their weight in gold and don't talk all game to get. These items include things like, Glacial Shroud, Fiendish codex, hextech revolver, brutalizer,zeal, sheen, phage, etc. I find II often perform better stacking in these "unfinished" items then filling out as I need too in later game. I would like to see a larger variety of such items so we have more ways to fill out builds that aren't based off of expensive as hell SR itemization.
My biggest peeve is trying to fight on a tower and suddenly I am channeling, I cant break this channel until the animation finishes, I am now dead. In a battle people will be moving around (usually) so this is a very easy misclick to make and very frustrating when it happens at the wrong time.
