Fixing KDA and personal score

Well, it seems to me that the scoring system is completely biased toward assassins and bursty champs. This is because of kill score, and its ridiculous. Why do we value the one who got the kill so much more than the other player who's contribution was also necessary to get that kill?

Well, here is my suggestion; creating a singular number to represent the kda contribution within the overall personal scoring system. Assists need a greater degree of definition for one thing.

a kill = 1
a hard assist = .75 - 1 (stun, taunt, charm, fear, high damage)
a medium assist = .5 - .75 (slow, silence, snare, knock up, medium damage)
a minor assist = .25 - .5 (Aura's, buffs, shields, minor damage)

Now, there are other issues with the scoring system, however, this would go a long way to address this one.

you know what the greatest score system would be

if we took all five of the people who won the match, and gave them one point
and if we took all five of the people who didn't, and didn't give them a point

we could call the points "wins" and have them appear when you look at that player's info

we could even keep track of how many games where you didn't get a win. they could be called "losses".

Plus one from me That's the best possible way to do it in my book too.

They arent going to do that though, and a refinement like I'm suggesting might be more likely for them to respond to.

While I do love your brilliant notion there, I dont want to get off on a tangent. Assuming that personal score remains, what do you guys think of my suggestion for fixing the kda portion of it? I'm open to other suggestions entirely.

Maybe I should have named this thread something like "assists are underrepresented".

No opinions and greater representation of assists?
