Kill stealing – everyone loves it, right?
I’ve not yet been in a match on League of Legends where someone hasn’t started complaining about someone else kill stealing.
I understand why people get upset – I really do. It takes away from not only your farm, but your ego.
But really, there are two types of kill stealing:
- Intentional being an ass kill steal
- Just getting that champion out of the way
The first type obviously sucks. But to be honest, I’ve not seen that much of this. I would say it’s not a high percentage occurrence, at least not in my experience.
The second type happens all the time – and I’m a giant culprit.
I play Wukong for the most part – and his ultimate is a nasty AOE ability. When I jump into a team fight I’m looking to get rid of as many opposing champions as possible – regardless of who has been working on them.
It’s not about score – it’s about the team. Your job is to destroy the Nexus, not kill other champions. It just so happens that you have to kill champions to achieve the overall goal.
So a word of advice to those that are always screaming “KS” – most times it’s for the team. Get in the game and work towards the team goal – dropping the Nexus – and don’t worry about your KDA…
