Not many people don't thinks its a big deal, but id like do get every ones feed back. So if your in a game and its 2v1 and your saving your abilities to kill is that fair, cause i think in like 1600+ elo people use their abilities as fast as possible to kill the target so they don't have to deal with it and who ever kills gets the kill. Tell me what you think a KS is and if saving your abilities for the kill is right, and any other opinions you have on kill stealing. Also its not a big deal like i said but to me it is cause I was playing mid and an Olaf came to gank, he saved his true damage for the kill and didn't use any of his abilities till i was dead so its just not cool when people ks.

Thanks

No such thing as Kill Stealing in a Team Based Game like LoL!

"kill stealing" is justified when...
You can better use the gold than the player you are stealing the gold from. the meta tells us that we want ADCs and mids to get most of the gold.
The kill is in question. If it might seem like the prey is going to get away.
The player you are stealing from is low in health. They might die if you don't help.
You are going for a pentakill.

Generally i'd be surprised to see a kill steal happen, when one of those conditions are not met. It would simply be that the player stealing the kill is simply not being a good teammate. in which case you can totally blame him for losing.

Being finicky about kills when you're working as a team.
Great, I can see your attitude when things start going south for your team.

I aggree with footfoe, KS is situational. If you're support you want to feed your ADC/APC.
So they can get into beast mode sooner to help you win the fight.

If you're another ADC or APC, ask yourself this, if you got the kill, how would you expect him/her to react?

In a 5v5 games, I've seen so many people cry "KS", why can't we all just go back to how when we first started in 5vBots and was just plain glad we were able to kill something and get credit for kill/assist.

KS means kill secured.

Your goal should be to get those kills onto your carries when possible, but ultimately, do what needs to be done to ensure they don't get away.
