In the event of Gank mid, I'm wondering why anyone really does it - Is there a purpose to doing it, or does everyone just assume they'll be there?

is just like the man code, you should be in bot bush to fight a 3v3 to death or else you will not be a man
the last man or team standing gets glory and honour!

^See @Cowpotato's answer. First Blood nets you 100 bonus gold, and in addition, it offers you early-game lane advantage. That lane advantage should translated to an increased disparity in Creep Score in your lane, which ultimately can translate to your lane doing better.

It's just the first quick skirmish of the game, mainly to try and grab early game dominance like Kohrok said. This is where your Summoners Spells and and your CC's are the most important aspects of the fight

and it doesn't matter if you went 2 for 1, You got first blood

Ganking mid is a strategy type that can lead your team to a win or loss, most likely if you do it early you'll lose, if you do it too late you'll lose, basically do it mid game if you've bin losing mid turrets, ganking mid could save the game. Some people enjoy ganking mid just for kills, not for strategy. I hope that those people do NOT get fed because that could end in your team using /surrender. Or it could end in you winning, it matters when they pull off the gank.
