I don't know if you've seen our meager cries, but many players are frustrated that there is no dodge penalty for dominion games. This has all but destroyed draft queue, as long queue times are then plagued by chain dodges. Since there is no penalty, often times people will jump into queue and get in the exact same game with the exact same people, only to dodge again. This is really frustrating.
After anywhere from 11 minute queues (primetime), to 1 hour or longer queues (early morning), I sometimes spent upwards of 20-30 minutes drafting over and over while people dodge after a solid 4-5 mins of drafting.
High level players are hurt the most, as our queue times are the longest. Most of the high level players have moved to blind for this reason, further turning draft into a desolate wasteland of queue times.
Please help us, oh new savior of Dominion.

@RiotNome: Dominion Queue Dodge Penalty
Speaking of mentioning it to Lyte, I also brought it up to him yesterday. The lack of a queue dodge penalty is not intended, and we're looking into it.
forget that man, there should be no penalty on dom for que dodging, people treat it as a joke already and if you get someone trying to play eve or some other garbage champ/free play champ on your team you have a right not to waste 15 minutes of your life.
The sad fact is most people who play dominion are terrible and dont know what they are doing, 1/3 games has an afk in it, usually there is at least one idiot on my team who tries their hardest to cost us the match by running straight at the enemy team fighting off tower and other retarded ****.
Dominion is meant to be a fast paced game mode, being able to get in and out quickly is a large part of its appeal if you get penalized for trying to pick your team wisely then why the hell do i still play this game because it seems like riot employees are doing everything they can to take all thought out of the game dumbing it down for the drooling miscreants that haunt the web.
That being said I rarely que dodge but sometimes it needs to be done, sometimes a friend has come online or back from an afk right as I enter champ selection, other times we have some troll trying to pick twitch or eve and expecting me to be cool with rolling 4v5 half the game. Why should I or anyone be punished for that?
What about the case where you move to champion select but your client shows nothing. I mean the entire viewing area of the client is empty, you just have the chat buttons at the bottom and the window frame all around. Your only choice in that case is to dodge by closing the client. Will that get fixed?
Someone clearly doesn't have friends. You are just flat out wrong, this is a game made for entertainment, you shouldnt be forced to play with people you dont want to, and in blind pick que times are like 30 seconds sometimes a little more sometimes way less it doesnt make much difference to me anytime someone else que dodges. Punishing someone for not doing something that in itself is punishing is just cruel and unacceptable.
This thread is becoming unproductive, so this will be my last post on the matter until I receive additional news of the dodge penalty fix.
How should we report it? Is there a set of diagnostic info to collect to help those guys out?
