Hey everyone. So I've been noticing watching some streams and what not that a lot of really good players go for champs with really good farm and just stay in lane a lot and farm basically all game (The best example I can think of would be EG's Dyrus, although I've seen a lot of top level players do this). As an example of what I'm talking about, Dyrus seems to favor champions like Singed, Mordekaiser, Master Yi, etc. All champions that can pretty efficiently (or in the case of singed, rediculously efficiently) farm a lot of creeps really fast. So my question really would be about champions and situations where you can't farm quite as well; What are your goals? Some examples would be if you're in a dual lane (and your laning partner isn't playing a support/babysitter role) or with champions without any real aoe damage that can be efficiently used for farm, like Kassadin, Leblanc, laning Udyr (most laning Udyr's don't seem to get phoenix till very late game), Shen etc.

Since you're farming far slower (because of your abilities or another champion in your lane also taking CS) your income shoudl be hindered, and I'm just not sure how you can compete with a champion who does have good farm :/

Any insight appreciated. Thanks ^^

If you're a slow farmer, you usually have a control spell to get kills with or force your opponent to run away like a scared little kitten to keep them under CS-ed as well.
Shen has his taunt to get kills. Udyr has his stun and amazing durability in lane to stay out forever.

There are people who aren't supposed to farm but have good farming tools. Like, Soraka's Starcall, Taric's Shatter and others.

This is a problem in the game I believe, because like you said if someone goes Mord solo top vs vlad lets say, Morde can farm...farm..farm...farm... then around level 9 his build is way out front of yours and its unfair but that's just how the game is.

Honestly how to counter it is to just hang around and poke and ACCEPT the fact your probably going to get out farmed don't get mad and play super aggressive and risk giving away more gold to him / her. Around mid game if you've been playing right and doing your role on the team correctly the gap wont be as noticeable.

Also I'd like to add that champs that really need farm can farm really well, like most/all AD and AP ranged carries and offtanks. The ones that can't farm well are really limited to tanks and supports, who don't really need farm for their items since they are cheaper; get gp10 items to supplement.

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

Its more better for supports, when they do 0 Lasthits, and tanks dont need as much as an ad carry.
The most time u must train a little bit with a champion.

Starcall and Shatter almost never do enough to 1 hit minions, so you can use them once or twice to lower the minions' health a little, which helps you laning partner get farmed faster.

Nameless is a her.
Also, it's AoE farming. Starcall is on low enough CD that, you can spam it to push/farm easily IMO.

^.^ yes, yes I am

Very true, that's why Soraka has the tag "farmer".
