Pretext: Our Fiddles jungle was pretty bad at it, and never ganked top. This Akali i was against had full runes/masteries so she had an early advantage with her passives (high sustain and more damage) i died a lot and couldnt recover. What do?

First, you can can play defensively. If you're playing under the tower, yeah, you might lose some farm, but you'll also have the tower helping to protect you. Granted, this tactic works better if you realize the problem before your opponent gets strong enough to dive, but even then, they likely will avoid diving if they don't have a bunch of minions to help cover him.

Second, take a look at how the other player is building and pick up some defensive items.

Third, don't be afraid of Dorans if you are back at the fountain and just don't have enough for your normal build.

Fourth, buy wards. It's risky for a jungler to gank if they can't see if the enemy jungler is nearby. Ward the river and, if you are pushed and just can't get the enemy to back off, drop the ward in your tribush.

Finally, if you need a gank, say "I need a gank Top/Bot/Mid". If they can make it great. If they can't, they can't. If they won't or refuse, (even with wards in place), there's not a whole lot you can do. If he's being a jerk about it, report after the game and forget about him.

at that point let her push the lane and tower hug. keep river warded so you dont get ganked. and play behind your minions.

most champs can last hit at tower pretty well. on melle creeps they can take 2 tower hits then you last hit and caster minion can take 1 hit from tower. so just use that to farm as good as possible. if your not getting help from you team its hard but try not to feed. better to be under lvled at your tower and not feeding the top lane
