Short for kill stealing, ks or ksing is a term used in online gaming that describes the act of another player purposely attacking a creature that you're already in the process of killing. In many games, doing this gives xp and loot to the person who did the most damage to the creature. Therefore, if another player did more damage, they would effectively "steal" the credit even though you initiated the attack.
