Depends on which creeps, melee only give 37+1d11 (avg low 40s), but ranged give 42+1d11 (avg high 40s), and catas give 65+1d15 (avg low 70s). I like to use the number 50, because it entirely ignores jungling / assist / hero kill / tower gold, which tends to add up for the difference (unless your team is getting stomped).
And I figure 50-60 cs represents the average forumer because we very frequently have threads about this. (I know I average around 50-60 as a solo against good opponents)
We have threads about this fairly regularly.. here's the latest I can find..
Actually, looking over the more recent:
It looks like 60 is a lot of people's best.. so I'd re-estimate around 40-60, average. -- Not necessarily as accurate for average CS strictly, but moreso average gold range, at least, which was the actual question.
