think of it like an apple core: you don't want to eat that, do you?

same thing applies to league core items. you avoid buying them and purchase the after-core items instead, because you want that juicy apple goodness.

Core Items to some people are what they get in almost every game. They would usually not sell them unless they're cheap costing and something of better value could be replaced

Don't limit yourself to those, and play with what your play-style works with you best.

The After-Core, according to what you said, would be known as 'Situational' items. These items are general bought as the game progresses, to fit accordingly to what is necessary and best to the situation.

"Core" items are the first items you get - generally bought every game.

^ This guy is joking... At least I hope he is.

Core item means that it's THE item(s) that you absolutely cannot go without and should prioritize over non-core items in most cases.
