So is 9 pots/2 wards now the core start for top laners?

Only if u can passively farm properly. Otherwise it goes like: enemy top kills u at level 2 after you used 1 potion and 0 wards.

Depends on matchup like vs some people maybe you want cloth x5 or long sword x2 still, having wards just makes it easier in case jungler comes

Pot starts are for super passive play. If you want to be more agressive buying actual items is better. But from what I've seen most people don't like that. They prefer to farm until the jungler comes.

and if your enemy also starts that:

he beats you, he beats your jungler, but you beat him, and you beat his jungler.

And? It's a strategy/meta shift. Gotta get used to it. They sacrifice mobility for sustain.

Good lord, first people want something other than boots and pots and now something other than pots and wards. Please stop.

Why? Boots + pots sucked cause everyone had no choice but to pick it thanks to junglers camping lanes as the jungle camps offered no gold or exp. Now everyone has no choice but to pick pots + pots. The initial problem of 0 variety is still there. Please, just think for a sec before you post.
