In ranked mmr i Usualy play offlane beacause nobody either plays it or just simply feedfest it (3k sad...), still I usualy have enough XP but i never have enough farm. When the midgame hit if the game is not bad not good I am in the around of 3-5 kills but 30 LH or less in 15Minutes~~

Any tips to increase my farm rate as an offlaner?

Also second question. If i offlane as a slardar and im offlane against CM jugg and enigma. How should i get kills? Wait for cm/enigma go to runespot or bait jugg for a spin? That would be my two guess forcing jugg out beacause i manawasted him.

My offlane build is Usualy the bootrush with tango, stout shield and mango. i have 175 gold left to have early boots and rune control.

You don't get kills as offlane. Your main objective there is to survive and get levels.

You should have really good understanding of wave mechanics to offlane well; Gotta know how to screw with it to bring it into your favour as often as possible. Plus getting competent at last hitting under tower helps.

Like don't worry too much about CS; As a Sladar you should aim to get boots and Amplify Damage up in good time. Farm can later, because you can force fights with just those things and get farm from that.

A lot of it is basic mechanical stuff you'll pick up as you play like using space efficiently.

Since you just can't have enough Chaos Breaker.

Thanks but usualy when i hit midgame i always "forget" to farm. Im trying too much to pressure or create space. Basicly if my carry does not take the space i create i have high chance of losing my game. Am i actualy taking the right role if i am an aggresive player who love to create chaos?
