There's nothing special about "level 30", except for being able to play ranked
(but IIRC you can do that at level 20 if you go premade with 1 or more level 30s...),
no longer getting XP and not getting any more extra mastery/rune slots.
Both Sephirotica's and my theory assume you'll most likely be spending 10+K IP
at level 20 on tier3 runes. If you don't buy (tier3) runes until level 30, it's very likely
that you'll be starting each game level 20-29 a few hundred gold worth of stats behind
almost everyone... Why handicap yourself like that?
