I felt the same way, then I started running in to competent opponents. Yes, if you can get fed, you skip over her lackluster midgame. But good opponents won't let you get fed. You might gain a small advantage, but it won't be enough, especially when they have a strong midgame carry like Corki outperforming you even at a disadvantage. God forbid you end up even with their carry.
