Do junglers not gank top anymore?

I know most say that a jungler's job is not solely to gank. But when you've let their top push past the river onto your side for like 10 straight minutes, you would think a jungler would act on an obvious easy gank. I did not "need" a gank but when you practically spoon feed a ganking opportunity, shouldn't a jungler take it. Nope, literally the last 10 games I've gone top, I didn't see my jungler once during the entire laning phase in any of them. Do junglers no longer help out top?

Top is usually camped in games I play.

I was playing Riven top and started for pot, so you bet your sweet behind their jungler camped me all game.

Well some of those games, their jungler did gank a couple times but mine was seriously nowhere to be found. And I definitely presented way more ganking opportunities than their top did and still got nothing.

Or maybe (as is often the case) it was all the jungle could do to keep bot and mid from feeding relentlessly

depends on how top is doing.

I see no point in going to a lane that is already 0/5 and has gotten me killed at least once while doing so.

How were the other lanes doing?

It was both 0/0 with their jungler on my side of the river the majority of the time in pretty much all the games I played. I usually was Nasus with a wither on standby just waiting for my jungler to come. Did he? of course not.

Did you by chance ask for a gank?

Im a bad jungler, but I usually only gank top if their jungle is camping or our top is struggling in lane. Obviously gank if asked, but if you are 0/5 you arent getting help
