This article is about the battleground. For the skill, see Domination (skill).

Domination is a battlegrounds game mode falling under Land Grab. Its objective is to secure capture points to earn 500 points for one's team. These Capture points, which are evenly spread around the map, are captured by players who stand close to them.

The game begins with all four capture points spread around the map, which can be captured by participants standing close to them. The number of participants affects the speed of capture. If participants from two or more teams are at a point, the point's affiliation will be eroded only if the number of participants not of the point's affiliation is higher than that of the participants belonging to the team. While capture points are under the control of a team, they will earn 4 points for that team for every 'tick' that elapses.


As with all other Battlegrounds, Domination features a number of Battleground-specific medals.
