You will die.
They will jump out of the fog of war and eat your face.
Every. Single. Time.

If we are farming in lane and you run off into their jungle alone, they will find you and there will be no one to help you.

Yes, altars are nice. They are pretty and give pretty stats. But they are not the end goal of the map!
The end goal is the enemy nexus. To get there, we need to take towers. Altars help, but
even if you take both on them the enemy team can still gank and score an ace.

TL;DR: Altar buffs are nice, but it is skill that wins games, and fallen towers that allow you to destroy a nexus. A bit of extra AD and AP is not worth giving the enemy free kills in their jungle.

uh what have you watched any high rated player play this game? It's totally altars that decide the game. Get both of them and you have an instant gold advantage and increased damage, and your opponents get squat. Towers don't mean as much, because late game most teams can take them out before you would even respawn. Just because towers are the top priority on Summoner's Rift does not make it the same for Twisted Treeline.

He's not saying altars aren't important, but if you try to take them without proper positioning you'll lose. Both lanes need to be pushed, and you and your teammates have to be healthy enough to fight over it and in proper position.

Know where the enemy team could possibly be and if u have enough time to take altars and be safe at the same time, its not hard. Map awareness and knowing each oppositions abilities and movement speed/range/etc will help you determine whether or not its 100% safe to take it or not, if not dont attempt it.

My friend never takes there MIAs into account when doing anything. As soon as a game starts, all of them are MIA, he's in a solo lane w/ no enemy in site so he decides to start farming, because you know... no one ever hides in a bush.
