Whenever I play with low ELO friends or smurfing in low elo I always see the dumbest starting items and it just amazes me.
Low ELO seem to HATE going potions and when I ask them about it they say "I don't like to waste gold"
And as the game goes on a lot of them seem to hate boots. The item doesn't do damage so they see it as a waste of gold.
I know these people, they are smart people and very capable people irl, but why are they so dumb in game? lol
Even when explaining things to them and they see the logic, they refuse to put it into practice and it just dumbfounds me. It's like they lose all their intelligence the moment they log into League.
