Gp5, Items I dont think so as they take along time to pay themselves off, and the games are generally short.

As For starting items, I think Boots most people will buy for faster travel time to capture points, and 900 gold items and tier one boots..

I really like the idea of starting with a Brut on AD champs. It's a powerful early game item, and you can't get much earlier than minute 1.

Magic pen, a decent amount of AD, and some CDR at level 3 is pretty neat. Imagine someone like Garen with a Brut 1 point in Q and 2 in E charging at you. :P

I am almost thinking Red and blue crystal for casters, zeal no boots for already good MS champs like pirate or someone similar, and brutalizer for tankier people who it will be better for because they can't just be bursted down, and big mana regen on healers and support.

I was actually thinking the same, take the hit on speed, but 350 would probably come within the first 3 minutes, and a given the pace it doesn't seem unexpected that you may have to take a blue pill back after a really early team fight for middle.

Edit: On another note, I think this might actually be a place for the newer tenacity items to shine. I can see boots of swiftness / mobility being far, far, more valuable on this map, while still requiring the effects of tenacity. Given a mild consensus that current tenacity items are decent early/mid-game items. It would be interesting to see if it actually plays out that way.

Alistar start: Boots, Kindlegem, Faerie Charm (1380, but hey!)
