Or they spam ping for you to retreat when they re-spawn as if they're only getting half xp. I mean spam pinging annoys me enough as it is, but when it's for something that makes no sense it's even worse.

I agree with this post. However, Riven jungle. OP. What jungle, grab buffs and stomp lanes in, her ganks are devastating.

I hope you realize that the reason why junglers have to be tanks is because tanks are no longer viable top lane due to the existence of riven, jax, rengar, jayce, etc.

Mumu, Malphite, and Naut jungle are so easy to shut down at one it isn't even funny. Aggressive invaders are way more important I think. Just the ability to control enemy buffs is way too good.

I am currently doing an Eve Jungle phase and find that the Assasin Jungle works best given that you can kill the enemy faster if done right and get back to your Jungle quicker.

Who cares how small your Jungle farm is, if you rely soly on this to try keep up with CS you are doing it wrong.

Look for Ganks, none? Than go farm next wave. Look for Ganks again, none? Continue to next farm and so on. If you keep an eye out for Ganks and not just focus on the "OMG I'm down on CS" bull****, you can gank enough AND farm.
The CS count is actually extremely deceptive for junglers, as it counts big and small minions equally. Even if you are keeping up in the number of CS, you are actually way behind in gold because over half your CS are little minions that are worth very little. The only way to really view this is to look at the gold earned in the post game stats. Unless you leeched a lot from lanes, or got insanely fed, you will see just how far behind gold wise you actually were.

They need to increase the revenue gained by junglers, I despise jungling to the point that I've finally tried every other role possible. I miss the old jungle.

I don't mind the game being this way. It turns jungling into a tanky, map aware roaming role that requires you to balance your decisions incredibly carefully.

It is a more difficult position to play well than ever before, and I like that.

people now are realizing the true job of the jungler. wich is supporting every lane.

imo the jungler should never get the kill when he ganks. if u let the lane champ get fed, he can start snowballing easily or just winning the lane. this results in the denial of farm to the enemy team, putting your team even more ahead.

is much better to give those 300g to the lane and leave the jungler with an assist.
so this is why its better to pick a jungler with a great kit, that doesnt requires much gold

I am sick of everyone stealing my jungle.

Mid will try to wraiths and wolves,

Top will very often try to steal all my golems.

If the ganking is going slow, and i'm playing vs a competent jungler that wards, there isn't anything for me to do but sit with gp10 and do nothing.

And I ask politely to stop stealing my jungle.

And they don't.
