Please keep these in mind when working on the changes, as they are cores that serve in both increasing aggressiveness and jungle cohesion. Explained in depth here:

Give this guy a cookie. And stop downvoting him, cause he has a very valid point.

It will be hard to balance the jungle so that ganking jungles will remain leveled without making constant farm jungles OP, comparatively, especially if you insist on keeping the respawn timers as is.

I generally like the idea of the rework, but yeah, needs a lot of tuning. Good luck!

If cutting them slack means the jungle stays awful, much like the Soraka change, then no, I won't cut them slack.

Downvoted for posting in all bold.


That aside, level 2 red is stronger than level 2 golems.

The purpose of the remake was to prevent downtime. "Is the jungle clear? Yep. Okay, gank." isn't how the jungle should be. It should be "Would ganking be better than farming currently? Hmm, is it worth the risk?"

Adapt and evolve, or get crushed by people who do. That's competition.
