I want to talk about something i see in Gotham Divided, ans something i try to look who it is.
I talk about that kind of strategy that consist of building 2, 3, even the 4 items that can give money (between 3 and 5 gold per 10 seconds) with upgrades than made that the gold power of those items is reduced to one level of the object.
After having tested that strategy in a real game, witch i play a poison ivy, i can say that i found this strategy really much powerfull. I was playing to help my ally on his lane, so, i let him the farm, and i just get the gold of some kills. I have nearly the same level of glod than him, and much more than any ennemy. i have seen this strategy in a game when the champion who do that was alone on his lane, on top. I found that he really quickly had twice the money of his ennemy, in the 10 first minutes of the game. Of course, a part of his money was spent in those items, but has he just need the level one of the object to get the money, and as he gonna sell this items later, he have really quickly an amount of money really important. Also, those items give somes others things, like health, some armor and magic armor, etc... So, he was not really in a bad situation at start at all.
So, i got that thought: Is that really the purpose of those objects ? Are their in the game to do that kind of strategy ? Cause, even if the guy don't do anything, or even if he don't have a good start, he gonna, in the end, have a really big amount of money.
With 2 objects who have +5/10s, the champion gonna have +1/s. if i remember good, a normal wave give nearly 80 when you last hit all of them... So, every 80s, it's like the ennemy last hit a normal wave for free. In 8 minutes, he gonna have 6 free waves. With just 2 objects.
This strategy, who seem's very powerfull, don't need more than 2 upgrades and less than 1000 gold in the game, when you start with 750... Also, has i say, those items give to the champs some others things, so, it's not really wasted, especially when you think than they can sold it after and have a part of the cost back.
In fact, the main problem of that strategy his that you need no action in the game to have that. Just buy and have the upgrade. all the others objects can give you advantage in fight if you attack, or if you're attacked, or if you do something in the game. this strategy just need that you buy and that's good.
Maybe i've wrong, maybe it's a strategy like others, maybe it's less powerfull than i think, but i had this feeling that it's not for this purpose that this kind of items was created. I think it's for helping controllers champs, who will often be with a marksman who need farm, to have some gold and don't being left behind their teammates. But, as you can have more than one gold item who give you gold, you can have that kind of strategy, and it seem's really powerfull.
