Everyone says this and I understand the logic. But in some situation, breaking one inhib can help our team to take down the turret on another side, thanks to the pressure from super minons. Then breaking two inhibs can do much more pressure to their final tower. Our team can keep harass and push enemies back to their fountains, or they lure the minions back to the fountain. In any cases, our team and the minons can steal some hits to the final tower, which make them lose eventually. Also the super minons don't make them farm much more gold. They can still turtle in their base to farm anyways if they are losing.

So any comment?

When you destroy an inhibitor, it increases the strength of minions in both lanes as well as super minions in the destroyed lane. This means the enemy minions will be pushed and in the odd situation, this is what you want. i.e. pushing opposite tower or pushing nexus tower.. but if you are doing that, isn't that considered "late game"?

The bad things start to happen when you push inhibitors and leave. Now you are denying your team experience and gold, while making it extremely easy and safe for the enemy to farm from base and the safety of their fountain.

It does make it easier to push the inner turret + win if there are two streams of super minions, buuuut like the poster above says, your screwing your own team out of feed/gold and making it easier for the enemy team to feed.

So essentially either pop both towers without poping the inhibitor unless your going to push and win or just pop one and push in to win. NOw if your owning them already, it doesn't matter so its hard to see this in action in games that aren't close.

Yes. In short, do not kill the inhibs until your team is confident it is ready to win. If teamfights have been really close or you plan to derp in the jungle for the next 3 minutes, do not kill them.

It's easy to outfarm your opponents when you combine lane and jungle xp/gold. However, by killiing inhibs, you basically allow them to farm safely and deny yourself xp/gold from their minions in that lane. This allows them to farm and level faster than you.
