    So, I've been thinking about gold earned on champion kill, and what effects it would have if it were done differently.

    What if, instead of granting kill rewards based on number of deaths since last kill on an enemy champion, it was number of kills since last death with a particular champion.

    As example:  Ashe kills Nidalee twice, then Ashe kills Alistar once.  Instead of Ashe getting (provided neither died previously) 860 gold in total, she instead gets 740 gold.  If Ashe then goes on to kill Nidalee and Alistar again, she only gets an additional 210 gold instead of 440 gold.

    587.5 Ability Power, 50 Armor, 45 Magic Resist, 500 health, 30% cooldown reduction from items alone.

    Assuming no AP runes or masteries, his Q would hit for 130+161.7+587.5 =  879.2 physical.

    His E would hit for 120+127.05+293.75 = 540.8 phys…
