So watching high level streams, it seems like whenever dragon pops up, both teams gradually try to get into position to take it, and a teamfight ensues if it is contested. But in low level/low elo games, dragon literally just sits there ALOT, and baron too. I'd say one or two barons is all that ever happens MAX in a game. So I am curious, are there any strategies that I should be using to take advantage of this fact? I don't like to jungle at low level cuz my solo lane can't usually hang, but is there anything I can do to ensure dragon control? Is it worth me just going alone from mid to try to kill it, even if it means leaving lane and having to go back?

You have to keep in mind a dragon is almost as strong as a regular champion. You need some help on it from lv 6-10, so no it isn't worth it to take dragon at low levels. When you get more farmed and fed, you can solo it easily. Try to do this with AD champs seeing how they have the most consistent damage. Remember dragon spawns every 6minutes, so keep that in mind when you kill it. At higher levels with better runes you can take dragon out with champions like Udyr, and Warwick rather easily ( Smiterecommended though).

Since you are lower level and cant jungle without worrying about your solo lane the only thing you can really to about dragon and baron control is to ward it. At lower levels people with think they can solo it and won't expect you to come down and gank them, giving you a kill as well as a possible dragon.

Sorta yes.

The right champion can get dragon very early.

Olaf with Wriggle's = free dragon.

Tiger stand udyr with Wriggles = free dragon.

Fiddles around lvl 5-6 = free dragon.

etc.

The easiest form of control is to ward it. At low level games not many will go and grab dragon so if you happen to find an opportunity that your entire team(or 2-3) are at the mid to bot area, you can call for dragon. Very useful especially after a gank at the mid or bot lane.

the easiest way to take advantage of this is to just get a champ who can solo it early on (meaning before level 10), you can easily secure dragon once or twice if you do it as soon as you can and if it is as truly ignored as you say it is.

In the beginning of the match, no one will ever go to baron or dragon. Mid-Game, get support or heros like teemo or those with wiggles lantern to ward it. Normally it is the best place to gank the team so keep it warded!
