This would add a layer of strategy that the game could use. Right now, we just pick a random item and champ with a limited degree of thought. If we have the carousel after the first 3 minions, we will have a bench of champs and hopefully a item or two. At this point, we can actually pick something that is meaningful to us. This would also mean we would need to start with maybe 2 gold to buy our first champ.
What do you think?
