League Dominion Quarry

Riot Games today announced that it would be removing the capture-point-style Dominion play mode and the Crystal Scar map from League of Legends on Feb. 22. According to the blog post, only 0.5% of LoL players play Dominion, leading to long queue times and unevenly matches. Additionally, by focusing on Summoner’s Rift as the core LoL experience, that left less time to fix Dominion’s issues and address balance in the mode, leading to it becoming even less popular. Finally, the decision was made to pull the plug, in just under two weeks’ time.
