So I been brewing this one for a while. Maybe my mind it goes crazy with the brew.
But I ask why is it not a "thing" to do 15 minute Baron?
Lets talk people

THE GOOD


Can force enemy team into poor fighting position
35 ability power (before 35 minutes)
35 attack damage (before 35 minutes)
3% of your maximum health in health regeneration per 5 sec.
1% of your maximum mana in mana regeneration per 5 sec.
900 global experience points
1500 global gold

THE BAD


Baron buff can be stolen pretty easy (do not deny this) especially by a higher level smite.
Forces your team to position poorly against enemy player attacks.
If Baron scores an ace on your team there is a special sound effect to show how foolish you are

THE UGLY


Health 8852 + 125 every 1 min
Attack Damage 600
Range 950 he primarily attacks closest target
Armor 120
Magic Resistance 70
Critical Strike Chance unknown
Attack Speed 0.208

Abilities

Wrath of the Ancients Stacking magic damage up to 10 times (this is his dps ability)
Voracious Corrosion Physical damage + a -50% attack damage debuff (this is a defensive ability)
Knockback Knocks players back (this is a knockback)
That One Green Thing Beneath Your Feet Thing Ability This can be dodged just like Rupture from Cho'Gath

Did I mention he primarily attacks closest target

TLDR


He is pretty much equal to a fed Jax who can't move

You may think whoa this is too risky but how much risk are we talking about?
How much risk in low competitive games where people hardly ever ward baron before 15 minutes?
How much risk with an early oracle or pink ward on baron?
How much risk with more than one Wriggle's Lantern on a team?

I watched a game this morning of a solo top Teemo who planted a mushroom matrix around Baron against a team who was ghosting (watching the stream and listening to the team discussion of the Baron killing team). They were not able to be stopped even though the opposing team was fully aware of this strategy from the first minute of the game. The opposing team walked though the mushroom matrix and was aced against the Baron team without 1 fatality on the Baron team.

The score before this was 5-4 Baron team ahead

Certain heroes are better at this strategy for sure like Teemo Warwick Shaco and jungling damage dealers such as Jax Ezreal

Yeah but you can solo it at 15 min if you are playing Mundo top like NicknameMy.

A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.

And what happens if it's warded and someone global ulties thus killing ALL OF YOU? Baron gets people low, low on health makes for an easy ace. Baron at your own risk.
