By destroy that tower, you will have more chance to land more successful gank.
here's what will happen:
at 3 minutes into the game, there will have been 3 waves of minions (starting to 1:30). if you're really really good at CS, you might get 15-16 out of those 18 minions. that's 300 gold.
the tower gives you 150 gold for a total of 450 gold.
what are you going to gank with at 450 gold? you're the AD carry. you need items. with 450 gold you might as well be starting out at level 1. roam mid? that's a sure way to get yourself killed faster than you're going to be killing your opponent. stay in lane? if i'm the opposing AD, i'd be smart and freeze the lane much closer to my second tower. you're much more open to ganks from there.
in the meantime, your enemy ad is free farming near their second tower.
i don't think it's a good strategy to follow.
