Am I correct in assuming you get the full effect of scaling runes for starting at level 3?

Runes should work by taking into account your level, then multiplying your level by whatever scaling ratios you have. So yea, they should have level 3 effects.

Yes, scaling runes are purely based on your champion's level. So if you start off the game at level 3, they will have their level 3 effects.

This level 3 business will make most flat runes very weak, won't it?

Games last 20 minutes. The first 10 minutes, flat will rule, the last 10 minutes, scaling will rule. (generally, there's always exceptions).

Flat runes have always been awful except for jungle or niche builds (like flat AD to proc Akali's passive at level 1). Flats will be obsolete entirely in Dominion unless there is some pretty random mechanics we don't know about.
