      To Counter the Counter of the Counter would probably be. red, scuttle, midgank, otherscuttle, blueside clear???

      Skill Capped Challenger LoL Guides now I’m genuinely curious. How do we go about countering this route? Or what about people starting the same buff as you like red vs red and blue vs blue? It negates the cheese and also opens up either a stalemate or a fight for the other crabs.

    • Shrooblord
      Shrooblord 5 months ago +1

      The final cheese strat was hilarious, but I would've liked a comparison view of Evelyn or Kindred to see how they were doing in the meantime. Might really help sell just how must advantage you were starting to leverage against them.

    This is not accurate anymore because of 2.25min respawn crab

    Just wanted to point out that you probably wouldn't have gone for Kindreds Krugs if Darius wasnt' pushed up and he could follow up on Vlad leaving lane easier.

    How do you get wards in both those places ? The ramp and pixel brush bot side

    • Filip Mirjanic
      Filip Mirjanic 4 months ago +1

      People in high elo ward pixel brush bot and top for jungler,in low elo they don't understand the important of wards so you need to ask it or to ward yourself.

  • David Beppler
    David Beppler 4 months ago

    Never had a bot lane ward the blue buff before. How do you get them to do that? They always ward river and tribush.

  • Brennan Georges
    Brennan Georges 4 months ago

    What if they take red, and go straight to scuttle? And you both started on the same side?

  • Pablo Guimera
    Pablo Guimera 4 months ago

    I get all inspired by these videos but then when I want to apply the theory that you show us to the game some unspected variabilities appears into my games, like afks and trolls because they got ganked once and died and they wanna ff at 15... but still good videos, maybe someday we will have a community to actually enjoy this way to play league of legends.

    If you're starting blue, how do you counter the red to red strat ?

    • zonkeymaker
      zonkeymaker 4 months ago

      Calm Sea ward and collapse with mid i think

  • Chaos Sorcerer
    Chaos Sorcerer 4 months ago

    If the enemy wards the top pixel brush, they will see you are level 2 invading their red. I guess it could work if you are stronger in the 1v1 and have lane priority, but it seems rather risky if you don't have those things.

    this exp leech is absolute cancer in soloQ. Most of the time you end up with nothing but lv3 96% exp when the enemy laner is lv4. Stop cucking your assassins by running over their lane.

  • Tamer
    Tamer 5 months ago

    I'm not a fan of this route. As a cheesy jungler I like doing my best to secure both scuttles in my route. That's why i prefer Red to early gank bot or top so they get the priority so they can help me get the first scuttle, to 2nd scuttle, to ennemy red with my lvl 3 lead. This is the best route to counter the Blue buff route in my opinion if u pick a jungler with cc.

    I tent to start top side when on blue, invade Raptors, warding the Bush then stealing red into skuttle

  • EASY
    EASY 5 months ago +3

    I am curious, since their Jungler starts Blue, and is saving his smite, aka not smiting gromp, isn't it simpler to go straight to their jungle from your red and kill them or forcing them to flash while also smiting their gromp. it's a bit risky, but there was not a single time i didn't take at first blood of forced a flash. Not every jungler can do it, but junglers like Lee, Kha, Jarvan, Graves, Jax, even Xin if played properly can do that efficiently. Tell me what are you thinking about this, please, i'm curious.

    • byAvaaR
      byAvaaR 5 months ago

      if you start red you can only go straight to their gromp without getting vision on you towards bot tribush or dragon/baron pit. The thing is going around dragon/baron pit will slow you down to the point where you wont be able to steal gromp in time. You could try this only on champions that are able to go over dragonpit without being on cooldowns that would enable them the kill. Of course if you are the stronger duellist this can work. But considering that you are really deep in enemy jungle take care about enemy roams and your lanes priorities. Dont do it without any priority. Also i wouldnt recommend taking such risks. Always going for the smarter play is the go to rule.

  • Neopabo
    Neopabo 5 months ago

    One other counter that hasn't been talked about is the infamous smite support trick (usually with spellbook). By having the support smite the buff during leasch, the clear becomes much faster, giving the advantage to the jungler

  • Deft Pla
    Deft Pla 5 months ago

    The thing is that the last route is very dangerous as usually top river pixel bush is warded, you will get collapse if your top and mid lack lane priority.

  • Fatur Rahman
    Fatur Rahman 5 months ago +3

    When you go red to red, the pixel bush ward will spot you. Ward time is a minute. The mid laner set ward on pixel bush in 1:20.

    • Jessé Monteiro
      Jessé Monteiro 4 months ago

      And that is the reason he said that red to red route can be used just in low mmr games. Do you think bronze-gold players wards pixel brush in 1:20? Even platinum players dont do that.

    • Neo
      Neo 5 months ago

      Another option is playing a jungler with a wall jump like kindred/kha to get over the pit

    • EASY
      EASY 5 months ago

      If your laner has a lane priority and has pushed the wave all the way, you can try to sneak through mid and avoid the pixel bush, but yeah, from what he was doing, he would be spotted.

  • Jan Shroogle
    Jan Shroogle 5 months ago

    Why does the third one work? It shouldnt... whenever you cross top scuttler you are seen by the pixelbush ward. Then the enemy jungler can counterjungle you and you are in trouble cause of the enemy laners moving to you? I am in gold in there is a pixelbush ward every single game if u think "oh in low elo there is no ward".. So please explain why this should work.

  • Kevin Surjanto
    Kevin Surjanto 5 months ago

    Vids like this is always questionable to follow in low elo like gold and silver cause people don't even know optimal ways of doing things. In this specific example most low elo junglers still just go buff to buff to scuttle or at least buff to far scuttle to buff. People still value early double buffs a lot in low elo so trying that cheese strat might just put you behind further if you're spotted out.

      Never gonna give you up Never gonna let you down 4 months ago

      Draven early game, Vayne late game you know you can't do much against this lane other than play passively freezing and waiting for your jungler. There is no way a Vayne can beat Draven early game unless draven is mentally retarded.

  • Chibi Zazomy

    Perfect video, one thing I need to note is that Blue, Gromp, Scuttle route is very common in the META so always ward the pixel brush on the Mid.

    Step 1: Pros develop cheese route (red into krugs)
    Step 2: Pros develop counter to cheese route (blue->gromp->scuttle)
    Step 3: Pros "counter the counter" by just going back to the old school meta of hard clearing your own jungle.

    Usually in my games, when I take 3 camps+ from the enemy jungler, my top/bot decides they need to give back some gold and dies to a gank. What do? ;)

  • A Rob
    A Rob 5 months ago

    My favorite route with Shyvana when playing from bottom base (reju bead and talisman): start at enemy red buff, take all but one raptor, take top scuttle. Start full clearing from my blue buff down to krugs. If situation is right take enemy krugs early too.

  • Seb16120

    This was helpful thanks, i rely on my instinct when i play jungle so im not that good nor i suck the cheesy way is interesting since it puts the enemy junglers too much disadvantage but some junglers take one buff to another and not killing monsters camps then they gank lanes how to counter that

    Dear Skill Capped. Thank you a lot for sharing such advanced techniques for free. I have used what I have learned from this video on my main account. It really helped me win my promos to Diamond I. I will post a video later today with my gameplay using the knowledge you offered here. Thank you a lot and keep up posting high-quality content!
