This is an idea that i think we all wanted do at least once or twice in game history, and that would be being able to switch characters within game. Hey a pretty new person is trying out Garen, completely doesn't know how to play, or is not building properly. Want to correct this issue? Just swap with the player and before you switch into the champion it will give you 2 options which is to swap runes if you like swap masteries if you like. Upon swapping champion both players will have total gold purchase returned. To prevent any issues with game play, you cannot switch stats of the player which means your previous kills/deaths and assists will remain the same. So if you were Blitz "support" 3/0/5 and want to hot swap with someone like Talon "AD Bruiser" 0/5/10. You change your runes from support to Attack Damage and change masteries from support to attack damage, once you get your talon you have no items in your item bars and have a total gold based on time length of the game and kills and assists. So you can be a Talon that has a score of 3/0/5 with gold around 6,000 to spend.

Having total gold purchased returned would lead to easy abuse IMO. You could just swap so you can reset your build and do something completely different.
Being able to swap from support to AD bruiser because you have a good KDA also kills the game. No one really cares if they die to the support, because they're just utility. But if that support could suddenly become the main damage dealer... well then that changes everything.

I can't see this ever happening.
