well IF you're facing another jungler, they'll very likely have the dragon down WAY before anyone in the game gets to even 8. When i play AD sion (top) i can easily solo cap the dragon at 6. Tryn jungle or top I've gotten it at 7 with a pot going (used to, idk now). Udyr can also get it insanely early.

The great teams get it almost as it spawns. Also, if the jungler starts cloth 5 (which usually happens) and gets a quick first blood they'll be very close to razors from the get go, and can easily snow ball from there capping buffs for the xp advantage.


Not to mention having a smite (not necessarily a jungler) is incredibly beneficial to the team. you can smite the dragon over the wall if they don't pull it out of the pit

I'm very open minded to trying new metas but that was stupid and now I have a biased opinion toward jungling in 3s now and do not support it. More power to you if you can pull it off, though.
Yeah, but that's not true jungling, that's like a half type jungling thing.

Jungling in 3s is an advanced strategy for a premade team, and shouldn't be used in solo queue ever. Primarily because it jungling is much riskier on TT for the previously mentioned reasons. It's also very easy to kill the jungler- all you have to do is keep a ward up on red, and you're pretty much guaranteed the kill.

Additionally, by jungling you are leaving a teammate to 2v1 a lane. And unless this person is prepared to deal with that, you're kind of screwing them over. Additionally, the 2v1 lane will most likely be pushed- making jungling that much riskier (as the teammate in that lane will be farther away should their team come to kill you in the jungle).

Yes, it can work if you build the team with it in mind. And even if you're just laning normally, having a smite on the team for dragon and buff control isn't a bad strategy.

T_T ANyways my team went bot together (they're like, no, we're not doing 1 in each lane with a jungler) so I held top against Olaf, and ended up taking jungles to my top and bottom whenever I could and easily took dragon when I was like lv. 6 or 7 or so, so I ended up with waaaaay more cs and gold than Olaf and eventually started pwning bot with my team. I felt so good that I proved to those nay sayers that jungling worked as a strategy in Twisted Treeline!! Well that's my story.
So... I agree that having a jungler is good on TT and necessary if you play at non-scrub levels, but...

How exactly did you "prove your point"? You did top + jungle and had 2 bot, like any normal game without a jungler lol.

3V3 has a different meta, making the bot lane 1v2 is just...no.. needs some strong solo champ for that..besides if youre a top lane champ and you dominate and push your lane enemy away, get wriggle or something and the jungle is yours..thats it. its pointless to take smite specifically for jungling or jungling runes and so on.... you need stronger summoner spells than smite when youre solo top since real laners take exhaust/ignite usually...no matter how much you jungle, they will push you away

the best way to jungle is basically soloing top farm the lane hit top camps then bot camp then back to lane since soloing bot is asking to get killed. any smart players will invade you real quick and possibly get a kill if they calculate ur pattern correctly. taking smite is fine it makes taking the jungle alot fast so u dont really have to worry about the tower being hit. just my personal experience.
