If you're bad enough to have to ask, you're not helping your team much.

Anything with more kills than deaths is obviously already helping, but kills don't matter. Just having low deaths is important.

Well, if you play Tanks or support the amount of expected kills is lower. And in the case of tanks, the amount if deaths is higher.

If you're supporting; super low kills/deaths high assists, tanks low kills higher deaths high assists, anyone else, high kills low deaths whatever assists.

Depends on what type of champion you're playing as. Support champs don't get kills, they get assists, usually I try to have at least twice as many assists as I do deaths as a support (I don't play support often). Any carry, AP or AD, should have a positive k/d ratio, low deaths preferred, obviously. Tanks should be the ones dying more often than not, as they try to the focus in team fights. In my opinion though, K/D ratios are not the deciding factor in wins or losses. I've won many game where almost all the team had more deaths than kills.

Don't fret too much over your KD. LoL is not an FPS, and kills do not grant victory for certain. I'm not saying that feeding isn't bad and that getting fed isn't good, but most of the time on even games, farming is more important. Giving an enemy a kill may not be swell, but one kill is only worth about 15 cs.
If you really care about KD that much, then I'd say that a KD of 1-1 is much better than something like 6-7, because each time you die, you are losing time while you are dead, not being able to do anything useful like farm or gank or participate in team fights. I'm not saying that you shouldn't go for easy kills, but most of the time, going for 10-1 will land you at about 5-5, whereas going for 2-0 will get you to 5-1.

If you watch many of the pro players play matches, you'll see that most of them don't get much kills in evenly matched games. Most of the time, pro team matches end witn a score of Winning team 15-Losing team 10.

TLDR, kills are not as important in evenly matched games. Sure, getting fed is nice, but you can't count on the fact that your opponents will feed you. Farm is more important than kills during lane. Winning one team fight can turn the tide in your favour and even win the game sometimes, even if you team is down on kills.

Looking through old posts, why doesn't anyone know what K/D/A is? They all refer to KD. Supports can generally have one of the highest K/D/A.
K/D/A=Kills+Assists/Deaths

Standard: 1.0-1.5 KDA
Above Average 2.0.2.5 KDA
Semi-Pro 3.0-4.0 KDA
Pro Potential 4.5+ KDA

Of course these are referenced to 1600+ Elo though. Should be much higher in lower elo
