I've been having a lot of difficulty lately when playing a carry with being caught out of position when the opposing team goes for Baron, especially when we're behind and I'm trying to either shove a pushed lane, most notably bot, or get the money for an item so I'm actually ready to fight.
Ideally I know I want to be close to Baron's pit when farming, either taking jungle creeps or sticking to mid. But what if such an opportunity doesn't present itself?
So what situation is the ideal time to farm at the point in the game when Baron becomes the focal point?
Am I completely wrong in all of my assumptions so far?
