The idea isn't to completely REMOVE snowballing, but have to have something to help counter against unrecoverable snowballed games. The scenario of purchasing these items would be if your team is just getting slaughtered and stomped, these items would be helpful to counter it. It would also counter the gank and resource starvation strategies.

Think of it like in mario kart where the person really far behind gets blue shells and lots of boosts to help them catch up. It keeps the game interesting for everyone at all points of the game. Its boring to fight against a team that won't leave their base towers because they are all 5+ levels behind, and its just as boring to not leave your base towers because you will never stand a chance in a team battle against a team that is + 5 levels ahead. Having an optional build that gives you a boost for being behind could help make those games more interesting.

In that case, I agree with you.

Unfortunately I don't see people using the anti-snowball items/abilities/masteries as much as the snowbally equivelants.

Still, having the option would be nice.
