DominateDominion Interview

So...I got an interview with the founder, otherwise known as TheFeedski, of the recently created site, a website dedicated to LoL's new game mode, Dominion.

Bacon & Betelgeuse: Why did you decide to start this site?

TheFeedski: I played a decent amount of Dominion during beta and got the hang of it pretty fast. When it was released, I felt that I was ahead of many of players I was playing with/against in public games. When I looked at the League of Legends Dominion forum it was full of people complaining or trolling, like usual, and I had a hard time finding a competitive team to play with. That's when I got the idea of making a strictly Dominion site. Thought it would be cool if I could make a place to host tournaments, find teams, write/read Dominion champion guides, etc.

B&B: Why go with paid hosting rather than free?

TheFeedski: As a broke college student, I originally made the site with free hosting. Then I started thinking, if this thing takes off, free hosting won't be able to handle it. So I figured I mine as well bite the bullet and pay for my own hosting. Plus, there aren't any ads. As of yet... Hope it stays that way, but if this starts to take a large chunk of change out of my pocket I may have to add a couple.

B&B: Tell us how you got into LoL.

TheFeedski: My room mate during Freshman year in college played it. He told me how the game works and I decided I would try it. From then on I loved it. And kept playing it.

B&B: Now, I've got to ask: Dominion or Summoner's Rift, and why?

TheFeedski: Depends on my mood. If I am feeling in the mood for some ranked, then Summoner's Rift. That mood doesn't come often though, so Dominion. I like the fast-paced feeling of Dominion. Getting your build rather quickly, being a sneaky sally and back dooring, I just enjoy the overall game play more.

B&B: What champions/roles do you prefer?

TheFeedski: I love me some Heimerdinger bottom lane. He's a beast. Or Ryze, Yorick, Gangplank, Xin, Tryndamere. I play a lot of people really, but prefer to be bottom. No homo.

B&B: What do you do when you're not on LoL?

TheFeedski: What do I do, or what should I be doing? I try to study and get ahead, but that's never fun. So usually I just smoke a bowl and relax. I'll get all my stuff done, but I'm a great procrastinator, so it won't be until the day before it's due. I also try working on this website. I use to make Youtube videos before I got in college and reached 10,500+ subscribers and got partnered with Youtube, but I stopped doing that. I should probably pick that up again.

B&B: Anything else you'd like to add?

TheFeedski: Thanks for being a member of the site and wanting to interview me. I'm in the process of finding someone to make a script for an unofficial Dominion ladder system. Hopefully that is coming soon.
B&B: Thanks for letting me interview you! Best of luck!
