Reason: because of how the map is structured. bot lane have a gankable back door for the purple team. and blue team has no such back door because its behind the purple teams turret. this means blue team has to use 2 or more wards to ensure safe laning and purple team only need 1 by the dragon.

U may say but the same is true for top lane. While that is true. A successful gank top for 1 kill is never = to 1 successful gank bot whether u get kills or not beacuse of champion and meta bot lane usually are ad/carries and support or tank meaning a successful gank will most likely push carries to recall opening up lane for enemy carry to free farm for the 1 min it takes to return to lane. in addition a top lane champ will not hard carry a game as well as a fed/farm carry bot.

I sincerely hope that this season 3 they do changes to the summoner's rift map. so its not so unbalance for blue team's bot lane.

laning meta was created by players and their idea of the ideal matchup and gold distribution. the map was created before these ideas of "metas" and "AD bot/bruiser top only" were made. all in all the map is 100% fair apart from the obvious dragon/baron but even that seems trivial at times.

tl;dr if the meta was AD top, there would be no argument on your side. there is no issue.

And after few more new champions the meta will be change again. I hope it will nerf bruisers a little ;-)

the problem is not the map its WARDING!!!!!

1. drop a ward near blue wraiths
2. drop a ward in river near dragon

then you will always see jungler coming bot for ganks. try it you will like it
