Just had a thought, I always see people complaining to me or someone else about kill-steals, in one case as Kennen i killed a Gangplank and HE complained about me stealing the kill on him xD And it's funny because whenever I see it I'm always like, they're dead, it doesn't matter as long as we got them. However, even though I don't complain about it I always get pissed off when somebody steals a kill off of me :D

What do you guys think about the whole kill-steal situation?

There is no kill steal, only kill secure.

If you are aware that the enemy might go away if you don't personally land the killing blow, do it.

If you are aware that the enemy will die even tough you don't kill him, let one of the priority roles in the team take the kill, in order that would be :

ranged Ad and AP carry> Offtank> Tank > Support

That's the way we play in my teams, and it allows us to get good victories by getting the important people fed.

I suppose it was time for another kill steal thread, which makes sense since we just had the "Why doesn't anyone play Karma?" thread last week.

We need a "Refresher Week" Forum, where people can post repeatedly asked questions. Regardless if they were aware of it or not.

I even had the situation where a team mate got killed by an opponent. As I killed the opponent, who had just barely survived their duel, my mate wrote "ks" into the chat.
He hadn't used Ignite or any other DoT, and he also wasn't a Karthus or a Kog'Maw.

Bizarre.

The ONLY KS situation is when you realise that someone holds back his CDs in order to use high-dmg spells on below 5% enemies to secure him a kill.

Well, I've seen a team lose due to KS. The Darius kept stealing all the kills on his team. This meant Darius had lots of gold to buy items, whilst the rest of his team kept falling behind. In comparison, the enemy team had an even distribution of kills. CS was pretty similar for both teams.

In a teamfight, the more balanced team won out.

So does KS matter? It can and it can't.

If you can secure a win with your 'kill secured', then it doesn't matter as much.
