Jungling is dead. No one can do it because if you do, then top just gets 1 v 2'd by the other team and you start to lose that lane, which isn't worth the buffs the jungler gets. By the time your ready to gank with a buff, the solo top guy probably has either A. already lost the outer turret or B. Tried to defend the turret and ended up feeding them a ton. So your ganks are kind of negated/useless.
At best, you only go jungle for the buffs only and ignore wolfs, golems and wraiths. But then it kinds of leaves you with a slightly useless Smite because you can't use it most of the time and you also have to build more for laning than jungling, which makes it a bitch to kill the red buff and such.
Granted, what you said happens in jungling all the time. I'm horrible at jungling, so I don't even bother to take up the role. I play a few games and most of the time, the person top either a) feeds, b) abandons their lane, or c) there's two top and one solo bot (for some weird reason). I wouldn't say jungling is useless, since skilled junglers know how to farm, gank, and jungle successfully. However, it's not necessarily jungling that's useless, but rather the person in top lane...because they're pretty much the whole reason why junglers have to stop jungling (if they aren't strong, that is). Well, that and bot, since sometimes bot can't handle the enemy. I sometimes go top with AD Fiora, so I usually get along with junglers because I defend my lane rather well. But you're right. If jungling goes wrong, top sucks, mid gets taken, and bot suffers horribly, then jungling's a bitch and you lose. HAHA.
P.S. Who said junglers only focus on blue and red buffs? Some people start with blue buff and work their way around to killing wolves, golems, wraiths, and finally, red buff.
