I'd always assumed that getting Aegis first as a tank meant that you got the initial edge on your opponents in the first few major teamfights.

But I just played a game where I got **** on by both teams for rushing Aegis as Rammus. They said I was a noob for rushing it. Could someone explain why?

Also, is it normal for a jungle Rammus to have a really low CS? I always thought that junglers didn't have a very high CS unless they were DPSers that could farm later, but everyone seemed to think I was also a noob for having the lowest CS.

They also said I was a noob for buying wards. No one else on my team was, so I was bleeding money buying wards. If no one else on your team is buying wards, is it better to just buy a couple wards every once and awhile and save more money for items?

Depends on the champ
I don't think Rammus should rush Aegis, he's better off rushing other items.

Why? I was the only tank on my team.

rushing Aegis when they have fairly even AD/AP ratio is fine, otherwise, for AD I'd go heart of gold first, AP I prefer just a negatron cloak to start.

there's nothing wrong with getting aegis first on a tank or support champ.

Rammus might be better off rushing an item like Thornmail to take full advantage of his tankiness and to give him damage, Aegis doesn't give him the same bonuses for a similar cost.

On champs like Shen though, Aegis helps him win the game IMO

Aegis is a cheap item and is cost-efficient for the stats you get.

I usually go for HoG + mercs THEN Aegis. It give's a good balance of stats.
