Wtf is a 'Jungle Tax'?

#1EcchiBakaPosted 1/30/2013 7:51:46 PM
Seriously, jungler fails a gank and just gimps like a whole minion wave. I asked him why he was taking farm and he just goes "jungle tax" and leaves.

Does it every gank afterwards too.

you made his gank fail. he needs the money and experience to make it up.

Sometimes I take a minion after a failed gank just to take my pent up aggression out on something. Otherwise, I'll just go back into the jungle to start farming.

Of course, burning a Flash isn't a failed gank and I'll camp in the bush for a little to come back and finish the job.

He could have used that time to farm his jungle but chose instead to try to gank for you. The attempt failed so he took some minions so he doesn't fall too far behind in levels and gold, otherwise he'll become uselss and be unable to gank for anyone.

It screws over lanes worse than the lack of exp would screw over the jungler since it pushes the lane and makes you have to choose between farming at the opponent's tower with heavy risk of getting ganked or waiting for the lane to even itself out.

Every time a jungler does this to me I just farm his jungle until it evens out

it's pretty common for the jungler to help last hit a wave before going back, they need gold too and it's mighty starved in there

now if they push the wave w/o you being low on health and about to b that's not cool

It really depends, junglers like J4 should tax since they need all the help they can get. If you just ganked and got no kill and both your lane member and opponent B. Just push the wave all the way to the turret.

Sometimes if my mid is staying I just go back to my jungle and farm more without touching minions.
