Also I was never good at cs uasauly having the lowest out of everyone not including support and I'm starting to feel like its catching up to me as I'm now pretty underlved when I play. So if anyone can give me advice on jingling csing or dealing with this funny meta I would appreciate it
Tldr? Having trouble csing jungling and help dealing with the funny meta of lvl17 solo que
If you're having a lot of trouble with 2v1 top lane, consider picking a champion with good sustain. Also, majority of the time you will be last hitting under your own turret, which will make it much more difficult for you to last hit again.
Melee creeps = 3 tower hits to die, what you need to do is (assuming the enemy minion is taking little ally minion aggro) you let your tower hit the minion twice, then you hit it.
Ranged creeps = 2 tower hits to die, I find that at lower levels during the game auto attacking the minion before the tower hits it first will let you last hit the mage creep.
If you don't get the hang of it, don't be frustrated, I myself had a lot of problem with this... Literally all you need is practice.
Also, if the enemy is trying to destroy your tower, let's say when they both have under 50 creep score
Let them take it. This will deny BOTH of them a TONNE of farm!
It will force them to either clear out their jungle for farm, or to go steal other lane's creeps
draining exp from the enemy.
Also, this is a clear advantage for you, you can freeze the lane at your next tower and farm safely!
And most importantly, try to stay above 80% health yourself, and catch the enemy while they're last hitting for free harass, and ask your jungler to gank.
I hope this was relevant >.>
