KDA is a horrible way to determine league points.

Notice how the text is also unformatted as stated in the article. As in, no particular order. Notice how half of those questions don't even have answers that make sense. Notice how someone with a platinum badge for season 2 doesn't even have reading comprehension.

If I'm playing support and me and my AD carry are low and an enemy Caitlyn ults the AD carry I don't have motivation to save my carry.

There are so many plays where you sacrifice yourself for the sake of the team which is GOOD play, but having league points determined by your KDA discourages this.

It's going to encourage people to play more passive supports like Janna and Soraka because they can stand in the back and buff allies for assists, and it hurts aggressive supports that go into the enemy team to win fights like Alistar and Leona.

This isn't CoD it's an RTS. Many decent strategies require sacrifice.

Every role must carry... it is the will of the Chinese Overlords...
