Riot Games are “retiring” the Dominion mode from League of Legends [official site]. They launched the control point-capturing mode in 2011 to shake up LoL’s three-lane pushing with shorter, more murdersome rounds, for people who just wanted to hop on and kill some wizards. But with “fewer than 0.5% of players” actively playing Dominion, according to Riot, it’s in a death spiral of long queue times and imbalance. It’s sad in any game when a mode goes to a home. So long. Ta-ra. We may come visit.
Yes, no, don’t worry, I will get to The Sisters of Mercy in a bit.
