What Is CS In League of Legends?

CS in League of Legends means ‘creep score.’

Your creep score during a game is the amount of minion or neutral monster kills you have done. If you are going to somehow compare it to an enemy kill, it should be at least 15 CS to 1 kill.

The gold you may get from a single kill is roughly the same amount of gold you can nab in listing a CS of 15.
