You're interpreting the patch notes wrong and that's probably fair given that the patch note specifically is a little unclear. While gold scaling intervals have been shifted to 90 second from 180 seconds - the gold increase on a per minute basis hasn't changed. It just updates more quickly.
Except those same people have already proved that lane gold was only lowered for PERFECT farming, everything else, as long as you get the gold from the big creep every 2/3 waves you come ahead.....
And compared to the jungle it's pathetic how much gold lane get. :/
Jungle takes 50+% longer, yield less gold overall, and when it starts to be more gold/clear (that you take twice as many time to make btw), laners take it all.
Not counting the fact that laners have more items and kill things faster than you do in the jungle from before 10 mins already. Great job as usual Riot.
