We launched Dominion more than four years ago as an alternative game mode designed to challenge players with fast-paced skirmishes, capture-and-hold gameplay, and different skills to master. As League continues to evolve, our vision for the core game becomes more and more refined, and, after years of learning, it’s clear today that alternative game modes work better in short cycles rather than as standalone queues.
Since introducing the experimental Team Builder queue back in 2013, we’ve been analyzing and re-thinking the best way to get into a game of League. The lessons we learned from Team Builder directly impacted the development of new champ select. As a result, when new champ select goes live, we’ll disable the Team Builder queue.
After two weeks of five copy frenzy, it’s time to bench the penta-Kench and send One For All back into the Featured Game Mode workshop. We’ll continue to tweak and tinker until the next featured game mode, so thanks for playing, and we’ll see you on the battlefields!
We’re opening up PBE signups to ensure plenty of testing for features hitting PBE on November 3. Positive players get first dibs on accounts, so sign up today! PBE can take a Zilean minutes to patch up, so if you make the cut start your download ahead of November 3.
Thirty sphere Syndra ults and wild Lux laser light shows will head back into the Featured Game Mode workshop soon. If you’re looking to get in a game with a five-pack of your favorite champion, make sure to hit up the One For All queue before October 26 at 2 AM PDT. Thanks for playing, and we’ll see you on the battlefield!
