This caps out after a certain amount of time as well, and while farming heavily is greater than waiting for the bank to build, the bank lessens the need to constantly farm to keep up.

Why this system?

* It rewards ganks and is a bit less punishing on gank attempts that don't result in kills for the jungler. After a gank attempt, the jungler can clear the jungle which has scaled a little bit while they were ganking.

* Smart counter-junglers can watch enemy gank patterns, then kill the big monster to steal the bank that's built and reset it. This adds additional value to counter-jungling in the new jungle on the efficiency side. This will encourage more jungler conflict as well as add tons of opportunities for great counter-junglers to pull ahead.

* It allows junglers to farm and catch up a little better if they fall behind early (Of course, enemies can continue to disrupt this and push the advantage as needed), but the option is there, which creates new strategic options for coming back.

There's a few other changes too, but this is the mechanics-level one we're testing right now. While I encourage feedback, I'm excited to see people try this out (if it continues testing well).

Since when do junglers get their own buffs? Doubtful you'll have blue past 10 and red past 20ish minutes. Or are big mobs also counting small camps?

This is only relevant in a very tiny way to the jungle changes but can we get a new particle effect on phoenix udyr's fire breath thing! Honestly it's a small puff from the mouth that actually hits a large AOE and it is very deceptive, it really needs to be shown where and what it hits so that new players cn understand it as well as opponents!

just tested it in a custom game, kindof wondering what the values are.. looks like you get about +50% gold on the big creep in a camp. Is the xp bank the same? Also would like to know how long it takes before the bank starts filling up and how long it takes for it to be full
