The point is to ease new players into the game without overloading them with information at once. LoL is already a knowledge-intensive game; having to learn runes, masteries as well as champions and gameplay is a lot.
If you think it's a good idea to just dump new players into the game without proper training, you may as well argue to unlock all champions and Ranked for these players too.
No, by my logic, its a waste of IP to ever spend any ip on runes ever until level 20. (I don't even know where this 21-29 came from... you can get tier 3 runes from level 20 on.)
I learned HOW TO PLAY from levels 1-30, and even after leveling 3 accounts to level 30, this one being my fourth, I still learn about the game.
Wasting my IP on tier one and two runes... kinda silly. Give me them later on as tier three runes.
Buying tier 1 runes didn't help me learn how to play.
