If there is a chance the enemy could get away, take them down instead of worrying about who should get the kill.

With the summoner spells and abilities that can aid in escape, its good to play it safe even if that looks like a KS.

Except most of the time you get the assist anyway and it's better for the carries to get the 100% value of the gold.

As previously mentioned it's fine to kill when it's not certain. But then that isn't a kill steal, that is just doing your job of killing enemy champs.

If the kill is certain, better let the carry grab the killing blow though. It's stupid not to assist though, really.

european high elo-ish player here. havent had someone whine about killstealing in ages. a kill is a kill. some controversial kills are usually followed by "sry", just in case the other guy cares. thats my experience at least.

you ever play a game where its like 2v1? and you are like right there, but are like, "psssshh they got it, i wont KS" and then you look and the guy got away, but if you showed up without a shadow of a doubt they woulda died.



the way i see it, its not really KSing, its making sure your team mates arent ******ed.

Bah nevermind, my comprehension skills are lacking today.

Also, KSes don't matter anyways, whoever did the most damage gets the most gold, all you get for actually last hitting is a shiny plus 1 for your score.

I never knew that, that's good to know for when people get mad at me. There's no gold bonus at all?

When someone steals my kill, I'll say something in team chat along the lines of, "You just ninjaed my kill. -_- ". Most of the time they apologize and I just tell them it's no biggy; it's better that we actually killed them.
