I don't understand how this doran's stacking stuff works... Most of the time when I recall I'll have enough for boots and / or a core item, and when I do end up with 300-400 gold I just buy an elixir for some supreme baiting... I don't see why doran's stacking is so popular right now

wow, are people really this ****ing dumb?

just... wow.

they spent extra gold on buying items that don't build into anything. you'll get your full items sooner, unless you stupidly let the ranged carry farm all game unopposed.

if you do, you deserve to lose.

So you're getting an early game advantage (building items that give good base stats, but don't build into anything) by trading away a late game advantage (being behind the people who farmed up expensive items). Alright then.

Your 2 options are to Feed her 3 times in a row and give her back the money she used up or you can NOT feed her once, play it safe, then laugh at her when you have superior itemization while she is still 870 gold short of what she needs.
great point arizel, however take this under consideration. She now has the doran's blade and though you consider it a waste she now has infinite pushing potential and the ability to harass knowing that you can't harass back cause the only way to counter doran's stacking is by also doran's stacking. Now remember this is 1v1 solo mid who's going to win, the 1 person who has the ability to last hit with no worries..or the other one who can try to go in for a last hit but risk getting doubled up and nukes...remember a mf that knows she has to the advantage will be smart and stay in front of YOUR creeps to prevent you from levels and gold. =p
