KDA is still a relatively relevant metric that, on average, does the best job of indicating your overall team contribution.

Sure, there are outlier cases or situations where someone is being a kill-whoring jerk, but in the vast majority of cases KDA is still the most useful metric out of the available stats we have to choose from.

Captures/Neutralizes is useless as good play tends to involve having low captures (zoning and early backing don't give you capture points), personal score is literally garbage and can't be distinguished from a landfill, and damage dealt to champions varies widely from game-to-game and needs to be shown in graph form alongside the damage from all other participants in a game to have any real value.

I would agree that KDA is the best if you are not going specifically for KDA, but saying its the best is like having 5 papers, four of which are Fs and one of which is a D. Yeah, its the "best" of the five, but it still is pretty bad.
