Last two games we lost because they got dragon at least twice. No one suggested getting dragon and they started to pwn us later. When's a good time to get drag early game.

a good jungler can do it level 6,
however have you thought about warding dragon then ganking them when they try to take it?

its baron you have to worry about though

if bot and mid can move to assist you can claim dragon anytime after 4 with no issues, trick is to push mid back and gank bot (forcing enemies on bot to blue pill or kill them either works) and then grab it while you have situational advantage, claim the 1st dragon early and its easy to get 2nd

dragon? you mean the big one, aka Baron, right?

around lv12 with all five should get it, but it will be risky.

if you refer the small dragon, the one only give gold and no buff

probably lv3 with all five.

Keep in mind, Dragon spawns every 6 minutes.. So if you take dragon at, say, 8 minutes, you know next dragon will be up at 14 minutes. This allows you to ward up the area and get your team in position to take it ASAP.. Or to bait out a teamfight at dragon.

They won because of other reasons not just 2 dragons...

To the OP: you should clarify the map.

If you're referring to Rift dragon, one of the best times to get it is at spawn with all 4-5 of you; if you suspect your enemy won't expect it.

Other good times to get it are after a successful win in bottom lane, especially if the resident champions aren't particularly good pushers (e.g. non-push carry & support), or after a strong mid push, especially if you can feign a top gank.

After the first tower is down, good times include almost anytime you can be in the area, after a successful gank on their jungler or straggling laner(s), during the opposition's push on a fore-gone tower, and after a successful push on the next tower. That goes for after towers as well.

Late game, you should be focused more on baron, but good times include those above, but also the event where the enemy attempts baron, and you know you can't stop it, steal it, or clean them up (assuming you're not warding off waves of superminions). Another great time is after the first inhibitor, if they're not aced, nearly aced, or if they're almost back up. And late late game could be if you are pusing down nexus towers, but can't finish the job without significant risk.

This is really situational but in general you want to do dragon once your jungler has a razor and if one of the following criteria are met:

1. Your teammates get a kill mid or bot and have over 40% hp (can force 4v3 fight at dragon)
2. You see two enemies top (enemy top lane and jungler gank your top laner)
3. You're sure they have no ward at dragon and wasted cv
4. Two or more enemies blue pill and you have high dps pve heroes like karthus, cass, etc.

Again this is really situational and as you jungle more, you'll start to understand when you can safely take dragon.
