How do you over come a level advantage if you are constantly being pushed out of lane?

Have someone come gank for you and zone the other guy away from his creeps so he loses xp. The best thing not to do is try to engage on him unless you know you can kill him. You could also take a little jungle farm if he recalls

Coming back when you're behind in levels is hard, even if its just one or two levels, be it disconnect, early gank/tower push, yada yada yada.

You have to do SOMETHING to level the playing field. Weather it be bait him into tower diving and not accounting for summoners, ganking another lane, power farming jungle and lane, grabbing dragon, something.

The thing you have to learn is patience, if they have a level advantage they are going to want to use it to keep you behind. You have to force them to make a mistake, or someone else on their team to make a mistake, so you can get back into the game. If you do get a kill, push to tower as you reset the minions and they lose out on that exp.

The worst thing you can do while behind is die. If you're low and they are ahead, go back. Unless you know you can definitely get a kill if he dives you. Even then, its probably still smart to base. Grab a lot of potions and stay at full health.

On that same note: DO NOT BE AFRAID TO MAKE A PLAY! You are behind, and any good player will not let up. You have to take advantage of their mistakes when they make them because they may not make another. You have to make a play to get back, or they will just use their advantage to push and win the game. This doesn't mean go for a kill you know you cannot get, but it means taking a calculated risk to get back into the game.

First thing don't become attached to your team or turrets. Let them go if you have to. Like Seph said patience. Why? A minion wave or jungle camp is GUARANTEED gold. When you try to make a play, you gamble that.


Guaranteed gold and getting it as efficiently as possible:

Farm BOTH jungle and lane for extra xp and gold. Every time you go to lane take a jungle camp. Bottom, hit golems. Mid, wraiths. Top, wight. If there's ANY way to take a free objective(minions, jungle camps, dragon, tower, baron) without fighting take it.

Btw, farming the jungle on your way to the lane is ALWAYS a good idea, behind or not.
