League of Legends: Staying Alive is Better than Dying while Attempting a Kill

As I mentioned in another League of Legends thread, killing enemy champions are fun. But there is a certain amount of risk while attempt to kill. After all, you are putting your own champion at an arm's length to the enemy champion in order to attain that kill. Therefore, your champion is at risk of being killed in the process. Unless you are certain to attain that kill without dying, it is probably better to play it safe and not kill, thus, not dying.

I had this revelation several weeks ago, playing a custom game with and against some bots. My champion was in the top lane with Nasus. If you've played with Nasus bot on your side before, then you know how suicidal it is; the enemy towers will kill it many times in a game.

In the early part of this custom game, I had to walk away from my desk at level 2. I parked my champion by the tower and walked away, while Nasus continued to push. When I came back, League of Legends popped up a warning dialog on my screen of being away from my keyboard. I dismissed the message and found my champion to be level 6, while Nasus was level 5! That was a shocker, because I hadn't done anything in that time frame. On other hand, in that same time frame, Nasus has killed many minions and died numerous times against enemy bots.

The conclusion, you are penalized if you die. If you stay alive, you are rewarded with XP, whether you kill champions or not. In fact, you don't even need to kill minions to level up. The only thing my champion was lacking by the time I came back was gold. So farm away and there is no need to be in a hurry to kill enemy champions, unless you are guaranteed to get a kill.
