how do you freeze lane?

I guess it's more important/easier for top than other lanes. How you do it? tank the minions? though that seems stupid since you're taking damage for no reason.

It's not about tanking the minions but more about keeping the equilibrium slightly in favour of the enemy side so they push slightly when fighting your own waves.

But doing this well you can easily keep the minions on your side of the river so you get a good positional advantage, but of course if you do it wrong then they will start to push the other way and there's nothing you can do about it.

You are freezing lane. Once minions get to your tower, lane resets and goes back to middle. You just stand there not auto attacking and tanking minions so enemy minions don't get to your tower so minions stay there, can make enemy laner miss tons of CS, or if they come closer, easy for jungler to gank.

You can run from/to bush quicky and always draw aggro, but hide before they send their autoattacks. This way you wont take so much damage from minions.

Also... I thought S3 just doesnt do freezing? When someone freezes you, I just rotate to another lane and force down turret.

You can still freeze just make sure your team mates are aware that top is now roaming.

That would work if the enemy top were an idiot, a smart one would just join his mid laner and push down the tower and take dragon while you're freezing the lane.

Or you could be Shen or someone with Tele... guy asked how to freeze lane. There is video of freezing a lane, of course the implication wasn't that OMG DIS IS DA BEST STRAT EVARRRR. Yes of course this means the enemy top is roaming, plan accordingly. If you can't, it's probably a bad strategy however it's still something you should know about to make yourself a better player.

It's better on characters with stupid amounts of sustain, obviously.
