New 'Dominion' Game Mode Announced - MMORPG.com

Riot Games has unveiled major plans for their popular MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena), League of Legends, including the new 'Dominion' game mode.

Dominion will pit players against each other in the war-torn mining village of Crystal Scar, a new map being introduced to the game specifically for the Dominion game mode. The new mode will focus on the capture and defense of five points scattered throughout the map, and will also make use of League of Legends' quest system to create dynamic objectives for players to accomplish throughout various points of the match.

Dominion matches will offer players an alternative game mode to the traditional Summoner's Rift, with shorter match lengths, a faster pace, and combat focused gameplay.

The update will also bring new items to the game, tailored specifically for Dominion gameplay. Additionally, players can look forward to an improved ping system, a new scoreboard, improvements to the announcer system (such as a scrolling kill tracker), and Dominion-specific matchmaking.

Dominion will be available to all players free of charge and will allow for the use of all existing champions, runes, masteries, and skins.

For more information on the game, visit the official League of Legends website.
