Legends of Legends launches Dominion
League of Legends has launched Dominion today in North America and Europe, a new game mode that adds more tactical gameplay to the MOBA.
Dominion is a “capture and hold” style mode, set in the Crystal Scar, a new map created specifically for Dominion. The map features five target points, and players must work to capture any opponent points while defending their own. The mode is designed to last about 20 minutes, making gameplay faster and more competitive than the traditional map.
