Would someone mind teaching me how to dougie?

I don't know how jungling works.

I don't know how team comps work.

I don't know how to properly pick or counter pick.

I primarily just play ad bot on Summoner's Rift so I like rightclicking people as corki, generally. Though I feel like he's a weak pick overall.

Just watch a few high ELO replays and it will come quickly. 3v3, aside from a few strategy changes, is like playing top lane 5v5, except you do it every game.

if I wanted to push gold in 3s, would my team have to have a jungler?

3v3 is pretty simple. Alot simpler than 5v5. basically you need fighters. Champions that can win duels, and arn't easy to kill even when out numbered. There will be alot more action than a 5v5.

The "lanes" are very close to each other, and the jungle is shared, so if you get in a fight expect it to quickly escalate into a 3v3 team fight. With only 3 champions, squishy champions can be picked off easier in fights so it's best to stay away from them.

Tanky DPS is kinda the name of the game. Personally i think Volibear is excellent in 3v3.

For gold, not necessarily, but statistically speaking it would be better that way. Low ELO players tend to not jungle, because it is too hard for them or they simply don't understand the concept of jungling. Thus it is possible to just lane with 3 champions (one being a capable jungler), and simply push a lane advantage and push their base, while taking jungle control in the off-time. If you do run a jungler, during your early games, one of your teammates will likely have to run a 1v2 lane, which can get tricky if they aren't good at the game.

A strategy that works for me in solo queue (when I know I won't have a jungler), is to pick a jungler with great ganking potential/mobility, and play them like a shortstop would; meaning you spend your time helping whichever partner is having trouble the most at the time, while taking advantage of any ganking opportunities. So a quick example would be starting boots/pots and going bot with your partner. You guys run your usual 2v2 setup as top lane 1v1s, resulting in all six of you getting to 75% hp or so within the first 2 minutes of the game. Right before top lane skirmishes a second time, you duck out quickly towards top lane and prepare to gank. 1/2 the time you get the firstblood, 1/4 of the time he Flashes out to dragon, and 1/4 the time they called MIA and he escapes unharmed. The same could happen if you wish to start the game 1v2 top lane with a teammate 1v2 on bot lane, then duck towards bot lane asap to back him up.

There's a number of things you could run/try and see what works best for you. You won't run into jungling teams until after 1300 ELO generally speaking. Regardless of what you do, I would recommend at least running Smite on one of your teammates, so that combined with excellent warding, you will be able to Smite-steal the buffs/dragons of your desire. Once you get the hang of 3v3 and have reliable teammates, you are going to want to run a jungler though.
