Top Lane

So the more my team is running a jungler in ranked, we recently just started coming by teams running two top lane. This way they are camping the jungler and bullying top lane out of exp and farm. Buff control seems less important because the jungle pathway is constantly lit up by wards and it is very easy to deny the jungler. So the jungler (me) falls behind really hard and the jungle was tough as it is.

While this only happened twice, I was wondering is this a new trend that is happening? Or was it random? I started looking at higher Elo teams mh as well and found that some games they run a jungler and others they do not. Why is this? I always thought that having a jungler was imperative to winning. Is it because some enemy comps are countered harder by you not having a jungler or because they have a team that shuts down junglers really easily?

Or am I missing out on the point completely?

ya 2 top is op, good thing no one really does it. when i'm jungling and i go up against this kind of set up, usually i help top lane by 2v2ing it with him temporarily, pushing the lane really hard at the same time. at that point, jungling isn't the main priority, it's shutting down their 2v2 lane. when their 2v2 top lane is stuck csing at their tower, we go take jungle camps together or we gank bot if there's an opportunity. basically if you let a 2v1 top lane set up out push you, out pressure you and counter jungle you, they will take control of the game if you don't do anything about it.

I hear the top lane is a scary place. Never been there myself.
