And I don't get how "score" is moronic. Sure, you could call it "Creep Count" or "Number of creeps killed", but what difference would it make? It's just a term to describe how many creeps you've last-hit, and "score" is pretty befitting in that respect. Heck, DotA coined the term CS, and since more people are familiar with the term because of that, why not keep using it?
