Go do the math. At minute 3, the gold equalizes out to where it was in season 2 for a laner. Not to mention that laners are enjoying the extra gp10.

And yet.... we're supposed to see this new form of jungle starvation as a buff? Every role got a huge increase in gold income relative to the jungler. And we have yet to see a red response to the fact that, at 11 minutes when the jungle gold equalizes to season 2, our lanes take all of the camps.

I just saw that the big creeps were worth a whopping 40 gold, and I was pretty sure it wasn't at minute 20 yet.

Yup. They just made the big minions give 40 gold.

And yes, it probably wasn't minute 20. I saw that too.

But also over doubled the rate of their value increase.

just edited my post. I know, I agree with you. Junglers basically got nerfed in terms of gold.

"We want to address gold starvation for junglers."

*nerfs jungle gold until 11 minutes in*

*nerfs jungler ability to face off against laners early by making us buy an item useless against champs*

*increases gold for laners*

wut?

I actually made a post about this - even without the higher rate of creep gold increase. s3 laners can get about 13 extra gold per 3 waves (486 to 499). When you count the rate increase (and the fact that the siege minion gains twice as much gold per time) junglers heavily got the shaft in terms of gold.

(Another thing that is overlooked is that junglers had the fastest potential gp10 when starting regrowth pendant - which means that they got their phlio gp10 synergy hit along with the removal of HoG)
