League of Legends Dominion launch fast approaching, says Riot

We’re really excited about League of Legends Dominion. The new mode promises to shake up the popular MOBA on several levels, offering players an alternative to the traditional DotA-style lane pushing with shorter matches, new summoner spells, and new items to craft from the shop – all set on the Crystal Scar, a brand new map laden with control points and intersecting paths.

In a recent update on the official LoL site, Riot Games revealed that the new mode will be launching very soon. To help players prepare for the awesomeness that is sure to follow the release of Dominion, the developer has shared lots of new details, highlighting a ton of new Dominion-specific items and weapons that will be available on the new map at launch.

The items themselves have been viewable in game for some time now, but since it seems that Riot Games is running out things to reveal and tease, the actual release can’t be far away, right?

On another League-related note, it’s still not too late to pick up a copy of the November issue of PC Gamer, which includes a redeemable League of Legends code that will unlock ranged champion Caitlyn along with an exclusive Arctic Warfare skin!

    Ya it's been all but confirmed that October 4th will be the earliest launch day. Read the forums on It was supposed to be "immediately after PAX" which ended the end of august. They then delayed the patch (they patch once every two weeks so by pushing it back a week, we all thought it would be for dominion.) But then when they made the official announcement of the delayed patch, they also stated that the following patch wouldn't be for another 3 weeks. This obviously means that not only were they unprepared for the new champion that was going to be released (Riven) but that they need a lot more time for dominion. I'll be surprised if I'm playing it by thanksgiving.

    I'd be surprised if it was even released by the end of this year. This is Riot we're talking about here. It's rare to go a week without their servers crapping out. I envision Dominion coming out, huge stability issues, Dominion gets pulled and will return "shortly".

    Riot's Idea of soon: 4-6 weeks, assuming there are no delays in package delivery.

    it's being released early October.Just about everything they are adding is listed here.

    Didn't they initially say August/Early September, to go with PAX? Hrm.... whatever. I see they're bringing Promote back, that's nice.
