Unique Passive - Life Ward: The first 2 deaths you experience in the first 20 minutes are not worth any gold or experience, after 20 minutes, or after 2 deaths, this Soulgem shatters and disappears from your inventory.

Only One can be bought per game.
Cost: 0 gold
Requirements: Ranked play, not available to players in gold or above.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thoughts: this would essentially be a 'newbie gem' that would help prevent them from screwing over a match early on by feeding kills to the wrong people (I'm looking at you bottom lane). It is designed for ranked play and only at lower rankings; by the time you hit gold ranking you shouldn't be dying early on and if you have your eyes on the competitive circuit, you shouldn't need this crutch of an item.

I've lost more ranked games because the bottom lane got fed and destroyed everyone, yes I'm in bronze and yes I'm not amazing at this game. However, it sometimes is out of my hands when my teammates start dying to the wrong people. Even though ranked shouldn't be a learning experience, many people take it as one; this item serves as a learning tool of sorts.

A colossal pile of worthless ideas. Punishing the enemy for doing the right thing? Only available once for free? Only available in ranked games of gold or above? Serves no actual purpose? Yup. Worthless idea for whiners all right.

NOT available to gold or above, big difference. it will lower toxicity and help stop wasting peoples time in ranked.

No it won't. It'll reinforce people's bad mechanics because their first deaths don't count for much. I don't like snowballing much but this is a terrible idea.

Oh well I stand corrected. Your item is totally legit and not rancid pile of fecal matter.[/sarcasm]

Throw your computer off of the nearest overpass.

A 0-cost item that entirely denies the first two kills' worth of gold?

What in hell frozen over has possessed you to make such mentally ****ing retarded item ideas?
