I've always wondered this while playing DOTA or LoL, but never actually came up with anything:

Would there ever be a useful situation where you start a game without any items in order to work towards a more expensive one?

If you know what you're doing and are mana-hungry, waiting out the 475g with the starting one can get you a Chalice mighty fast.

Other than that, I can't think of anything.

There aren't a lot of items that have components that you can't buy at least part of, so I doubt it. I guess you could try rushing an Infinity Edge by saving for a B.F. Sword.


Click on them. You know you want to. Except Jax. He's just there for color.
Yo, I'm Urgot. See that plane? BOOM.

It would need to be someone with survivability early game because you couldn't rely on hp regen from items or potions. Or if you got heal or clarity as summoner spells you could last longer.

Part of the strategy would be that other people might think you are noob, causing them to get greedy and perhaps tower dive.

but still....what is it 1850 for a bf sword, rushing a bf sword with zero items to help farm or stay in lane or cast is a horrible idea, quite grotesque to say the least

No, there is no reason to ever start the game with no items to save up for better... It's not worth it...

Every good item requires a cheaper item to build into it... So buy the cheap item first...

Or Get a DORIAN cuz the extra HP make a HUGE DIFFERENCE...
