The addition of the Dominion mode also means a new map, Crystal Scar, tailored to the mode's needs and featuring original art. According to Riot Games, Dominion matches are also designed to resolve quicker than the standard League of Legends battles waged on the Summoner's Rift map. Matches on Crystal Scar are expected to resolve in about 20 minutes, according to the developer. Additionally, players will be able to bring their characters, abilities, and skins over from the standard League of Legends to try out in the Dominion mode.

Established in 2006, Riot Games--which is composed of talent from Blizzard Entertainment and the mod community that made DOTA--shipped League of Legends in 2009. The game has attracted 15 million registered players to date and was recently a victim of a LulzSec hack attack that targeted a number of companies.
