Degradable Items -Poll-
Hey guys its me again, and this time I got the idea of degradable items.
Basically it is the same of a certain item, but it only lasts a limited time and is worth half the original price of the item.
Ex. Degradable Needlessly Large Rod -800 gold-. Lasts 2 minutes. Sells for 0.

There could also be a "Repair" option in the shop to repair your degraded item for the same price it is.
Ex. Degradable Needlessly Large Rod -800 gold- for repair.

And their could be and "Upgrade" option to make your degradable item the real thing. It costs 1.5x the price of the degradable item.
Ex. Degradable Needlessly Large Rod -1200 gold- for upgrade.

Tell me what you guys think of this idea.

Half the gold for a twentieth of the time.

It would be a noob trap, the time you gave is terribly short any team with half a brain combined between them will make your 2 minute purchase useless. Proposing degradable items for weak items doesnt make sense, theres already dorans items. With what you proposed its get 2 kills at the most, or encase yourself in cement and attempt to swim.

There has to be a better reason for people to buy degradable items such as Warmogs 2.0 gives 1500 hp (3k gold) and lasts for 8 minutes.

But I am still against the idea entirely

my time limit on the idea was random but since it is such a strong AP item i thought it should be relevantly low.

Thanks for the constructive criticism. I might have to think of some tweaks now.

I think I got something, instead of their being a time limit, there could be a cast limit
Ex. Degradable Needlessly Large Rod 100 abilities used. Degradable Phantom Dancer 200 Auto Attacks, etc.
