League of Legends Dominion


Yea you just saw right. League of Leg­ends will be get­ting a huge update. This was post­ed today on their offi­cial forums as well as a lit­tle info:
Sum­mon­ers!
Many of you may have been won­der­ing out loud just what we have in store for the future. Today we are pleased to give you your first look at League of Leg­ends: Domin­ion, the largest game update in the his­to­ry of League of Leg­ends. This update will fea­ture not only a brand new map, but also an entire­ly new game mode show­cas­ing inno­v­a­tive game­play nev­er before attempt­ed in the MOBA genre.
For quite some time, all of you have been clam­or­ing for new bat­tle­fields upon which to test your skills against oth­er sum­mon­ers in League of Leg­ends. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve heard you, and that for over a year our Design Team has been work­ing tire­less­ly to craft Domin­ion into a tru­ly new and ground­break­ing expe­ri­ence.
On the Crys­tal Scar play­ers will bat­tle for con­trol of five cap­ture points, hold­ing them to dam­age their ene­mies’ nexus. The game ends when one team had seized con­trol long enough to drain the oppos­ing team’s nexus down to zero. Bat­tles last around 20 min­utes, and focus on high-inten­si­ty, play­er-ver­sus-play­er com­bat. If you’ve been look­ing for a fast-paced, high-inten­si­ty com­pet­i­tive gam­ing expe­ri­ence, this is what you’ve been wait­ing for.
We’re tak­ing Domin­ion on the road dur­ing con­ven­tion sea­son this year, allow­ing you to get your hands on the new game mode at both Gamescom in Cologne, Ger­many and PAX Prime in Seat­tle, Wash­ing­ton! Stay tuned for more details as we draw clos­er to these excit­ing events.
To cur­rent play­ers this is some of the biggest news ever. The only down­side is that there is no cur­rent time table for the release. How­ev­er with Domin­ion being live at the dif­fer­ent con­ven­tions maybe we aren’t to far out.

    This is def­i­nite­ly a game chang­er. It’s going to cause League of Leg­ends to take on a lot more of its own iden­ti­ty, which I believe will pos­i­tive­ly impact both it and Dota 2. This is break­ing the mold of “just anoth­er Dota game” and push­ing into new ter­ri­to­ry which looks real­ly fun. This also means that the dom­i­nant game for hard­core DotA fans (who want to move for­ward, DotA is aging pret­ty quick­ly) will prob­a­bly become Dota 2, pro­vid­ed that Valve does­n’t screw it up hor­ri­bly (which is a pos­si­bil­i­ty).
