I agree with Bladee, snowballing is too much like men kissing to be fair.


I guess you like long drawn out games that last over an hour and everyone has guardian angel and trying to desperately defend their base from a back door while one champ on each team tries to backdoor the other team.

Seems conditional to me. Obviously if you can't dominate early game, don't immediately pick it up. But unlike others, I don't think it's an early-game-only pickup. If you start to steamroll the other team in kills and it fits in with your progression, pick it up.

I very seldom get snowball items, as if I'm getting the stacks, I'm doing well enough anyway. The only time it really makes a difference is if you're the gamechanger and you are worried about being effective enough late game against opponents who have finally had time to further their builds. However, you're probably the gank target in that event, and if you are not, you still probably don't need it as the other team isn't being very smart. Leviathan can be an exception.

I only get snowball items if my early game has racked in some kills before I make the choice to buy either the snowball item or some other item which could help better in case i was losing stacks here and there.

Sounds like a good rule of thumb.
