I personally spend my time fulfilling my role, and placing clever wards.
If I'm a carry, I'll try to get lots of kills and shut down the enemy.
If I'm an initiate, I'll try to do it at the best time, when their team is split or when their carry takes a step too far forward.
Just getting kills and not dying will not
win you every game.
Making the right plays will win you games.
If you get every dragon, and every baron, in an hour long game, and your team goes 0/12 (I don't know why there would be so few deaths in an hour but it can happen) then your team is going to be -far- ahead in gold, without any kills. Just 2 barons would already make up for 12 kills.
Tower control, intelligent pushes, good farm
, all of these things might actually decide the outcome of a game much more readily than KDA.
Even if you feed 3 kills, but heavily out-farm the opponents, you'll still have more gold, and better gear, and a KDA will not reflect the fact that you're winning in items, even though you're down kills.
