People realized the sustain and increase in AD to be more powerful due to ratios on certain champs (IE AD great for Graves Q).

Only champs that go IE now are like, Cait and Ashe.

It used to be that the greater portion of the AD carries had long attack ranges (Ashe, Caitlyn, late game Tristana, Kog'Maw). With the addition of so many tanky DPS champions with gap closers and CC, the shorter range carries have had to find a way to be more safe, meaning that they rush BT instead of IE.

BT has sustain and more AD than IE, while also being cheaper. So by relying more on skill damage rather than just AA damage you can steamroll earlier.

How to AD.

Play as an AD Caster for first half of game
Play as an AD Carry for last half of game

If playing Tristanna, Kogmaw, Ashe, Caitlyn, skip step 1.

Games don't drag out long enough, and are often won/decided in the mid game.
BT often better for this I guess.

I can see why the Asian teams would opt for BT. They end games before late game happens, so it's better to pick up BT for the great mid game it has. Does anybody remember which item CLG's ADC opted for?

Top carries build Phage > Triforce anyway.
Chances are in competitive games you will get a corki/ez
