Let's say for example:

You're Fiddlesticks and you didn't harm the enemy champion for a while. Then you just Terrify (using Q, fearing him without dealing any damage) the enemy champion (which has 86 hp). The feared one walks right inside the tower range, then the tower shoots him once so the enemy dies.

Does this count as a kill or it's just an execution?

  • I belief status effects do count for champion kills. – ian5v Sep 4 '13 at 22:59
  • I guess it would count as a kill because you still 'hit' the enemy. – LTPro Sep 4 '13 at 23:09

Though this was not always the case, CC effects and damage dealt to (but not enough to break) a shield do count for Kill / Assist credit.

  • But what if you don't deal any damage to the target, and gets killed by your turret after you applied a non-damaging fear spell to it? – Fabián Sep 4 '13 at 23:15

    That's exactly what I said. CC Effects, and damage dealt to a shield (which gets absorbed, and so deals no damage), both count. The shield change was recent, which is why I mentioned it. Previously, you could deal damage to a shield, the shield would fall, and the champ dies due to tower (or whatever), and you would not get credit. – Raven Dreamer Sep 4 '13 at 23:31

    As an addition, any skill that somehow modifies the champion's stat or behaviour will get you the kill. Any skill that does the same on an ally who gets a kill, will grant you an assist. I do wonder what would happen if you play as Janna, shield your turret and do nothing else while the enemy gets killed..... – Joetjah Sep 5 '13 at 13:23

    @Joetjah I've actually seen that in ARAM. It counts as Janna's kill. – Raven Dreamer Sep 5 '13 at 13:41

    @David That should be correct, yes. An other good example would be Nocturne's ult, who usually got an assist just by darkening (and not flying). This has been changed though, but it was an example of how the system worked I guess. – Joetjah Sep 6 '13 at 11:29
