I originally posted saying nearly all ranked matches from bronze to gold are indeed decided in the 1st 5-10 minutes...


Ironically, I see people complain all the time that their teams throw away leads instead of closing out the game.

You can't get fed enough in 5-10 minutes to 1v5 the enemy team.

Its for that reason that some ranked games can last longer than 20 minutes: human error. You may not be able to 1v5, but 1v2 or 3 its possible and in the grand scheme of things and that is all that matters.

Then junglers will have less of a role.

If kills become less of a focus? In some way, but it will be more about taking objectives at crucial moments if say bottom is preoccupied jungle helps top take their tower. Or kills may not drop off the radar, it will simply require more consistent effective gameplay in terms of ganking and pressuring the lanes.

Despite what some people may say, the sole purpose of jungle is not to gank, they're a roamer and in sense they are waging a war of a psychological one, by having a presence they make the other team cautious and nervous to wander away from a lane. Additionally, since the changes to jungle gold gain, jungle can be called "the fourth lane" because it frees up top or mid lane of another player allowing those lanes to get a ton of gold and a ton of experience because they are in solo lanes.
