As an adc i go boots pots because i get Beserkers early.

Top lane i'm very often level 2 ganked so I go flask, ward, pots.

Because you'll want boots 2 soon enough anyway. Might as well grab the boots early. It makes avoiding skill shots a bit easier, and if they have early boots and you don't it'll be a lot harder to get a kill.

I think it's still fairly necessary mid. One ward and a flask isn't going to save you from a gank. Having a MS advantage compared to their jungler very well might. Plus early sorcs is good.

The only position I will ever get boots+3 on is ADC. Everyone else build maximum sustain and if they try to zone you with their so called extra movement speed just turn and beat them, Because no matter what you win the trade, They only move faster you just heal it back after the engage is over.

Because extra movespeed is always amazing.

Because the extra move speed makes it easier to harass and easier to catch the guy you just took down to <50hp as he tries to run.

It might not happen every match, it might not even happen every 1 in 10, but every time I've taken something other than boots I've missed out on an early kill.

Flask, pots and a ward has become my default start for almost any lane.
Farm and sustain for ages as the enemy just goes oom or low on health way before you do.

Yeah, same. I've forced almost everyone who has started boots +3 to back at least twice before I had to. It's a MUCH stronger start now than boots TBH.

Because I'm terrible and can't chase down people who have boots without boots.

Honestly. The handful of times I've not started boots + 3, my opponent has and then I end up not being able to finish or get away from them more often then "Damn, I wish I had another potion right now."

Just a safe start, gives me the sustain in mid to stay till catalyst.
