    Unless there is a Kali or Thanatos involved in the match, I really don't care who or what gets the kill so long as the kill is secured. Anyone in the game gets an advantage with FB or a kill, it doesn't have to always go to a Hunter or Jungler to be good.

    That said don't be that asshole that walks up and steals a kill you had no part of with a Guardian basic attack.

    Killstealing is not a thing.

    idc as long as they die. kali is really the only person I will go out of my way to not fuck over. Xbal used to be in there bit they fixed his passive.

    I've lost track of the auto atks with ymir that have stolen kills esp with poly on. lol

    When in doubt, play Ganesha.

    But seriously, unless you have a character that needs a kill to live, Kali, a half dead assassin who needs their bloodforge shield proc, someone really really behind, just secure the kill. I don't generally care if I don't get last hit, but also don't die to secure a kill, that I'll get ticked off about.

    Are they dead? Yes. Are you? No? That's all that matters.

    The only exception in my opinion is kill gold going to a Carry/Jungler over a Support, and an exception granted to kill lane supports like Ymir/Ares.

    The only time I personally believe kill stealing exists is when you have a Kali, Thanatos, or Xbal going for the kill and someone else takes it when they need it or if somebody is that asshole and doesn't do anything but wait for their teammates to damage an enemy and then kill them with a basic attack. You'd be surprised how many people do that shit.

    Other than that, if you see a kill go for it

    There's also legit more kill stealing towards minions. It takes me forever to build Transcendence because mages that aren't building anything gotta obliterate a wave before I can get there. 'I'm building stacks' doesn't help.

    Did you contribute to the kill in a meaningful way?
    Did you make sure the kill was secured, if only to be on the safe side?

    If the answer to either of these questions is "yes," you did not steal anything. Otherwise, it's just rude, but usually not detrimental to your chances of victory.

    Im glad many people here are saying to just take the kill instead of waiting it out. I agree that in most cases kill stealing isn't a thing because not taking the killshot when you easily can is subject to so many uncertainties.

    I play a lot of support and I used to try to give as many kills to the adc as possible. But imo this isnt good behavior. By not taking the killshot as a support, im taking a lot of risks. Say I wait for the adc to make the kill, he uses his skills but misses and is now on cooldown. The guy escapes and the enemy jungler walks in and kills us both because were out of position because we had to chase much longer and my adc is still on cooldown. Much better to give the adc the assist and be safe.

    That one second that you wait to give the killshot to someone else can make such a big difference. In that one second, one of his abilities can come up and he can escape. Or his teammate can show up and he can escape. Killing an enemy one second sooner means getting to an objective one second sooner and maybe killing that. Smite is a teamgame and and its not about getting as much individual kills. Its about killing objectives and winning the game.
