The reason people really like Crit damage runes is that there is only two items in game that give it to you.
Once you get infinity edge you are basically done getting crit damage, while it is much easier to stack a bunch of crit chance.

I generally play gangplank, and with stacking crit chance in my items and crit damage runes and infinity edge, i can easily get over 1k parrley crits with 90% crit chance. (my only damage item being infinity edge).

its simple really in alot of cases, if u look and do the maths, ur scaling runes will over take flat runes by level 4, so for 95% of the game scaling runes are more useful, flat ones are only useful with the first one or two skirmishes at the start. However many runes are different, for example i take flat hp quints because the per level ones give you 48.5 or so and flat give u roughly 32, so flat is good in this case because scaling wont be better until mid-late game.

best to do some maths and compare scaling with flat before buying them

Another good example is cd. Cd runes overtake flat ones at some point. However, when they overtake them, that % of CD reduction is still useful. but look at say like a health one. That bonus health is only signifigant (ther +30 or whatever) earlygame anyway. +30 at level 1 is MUCH better than +50 at level 18. So it depends on what stat, and whether it's a percentage increase, as to whether flats or scalings are better

You bumped this year old thread but I have to say scaling CDR are worthless and telling people to purchase them is just actively malicious.

I'll have to /disagree due to the fact that 40+ MR end game DOES make a difference.
