So if me and my 2 team mates are doing call outs pushing the other team together while the 3rd sits in back of complex with a shotgun waiting for someone to come in, and we still end up losing but he goes 8 and 2 no I don't think he contributed to the match at all.
See, if this was a different Halo, I would agree that the teammate dying 24 times while getting the 25 kills had more of an impact on the team since he added more to the overall score and probably setup most of the kills his teammates got.
But, with the addition of ordinance and the fact that the other team gets it depending on how much they kill, dying a disproportionate amount of times compared to your team could be a pretty bad thing. He's giving the other team a chance to get critical weapons at a critical point in the game where they could make a push and end up winning.
Sure, he had 5/12 of the team's kills, but he was also 2/5 of the other team's kills, and that's a problem.
Those of you saying that Slayer is all about killing are correct, but you need to remember that you still need to make sure you're in a good position to win. Dying that many times, with the inclusion of ordinance, is not putting you in a good position.

It does when you got majority of the kills and won.
Just stop...I refuse to have this argument with someone with a Slayer KD under 1.
Yea, I'd want to stop arguing too if I was an idiot out of points
No, I want to stop arguing with someone who clearly has no business being part of the argument.
How would I not be part of the argument? I've told you how wrong you are for thing long and you need a scapegoat to make yourself feel like you're right and better when your clearly wrong and too stuborn to admit it. You really just want to be rewarded for sitting back and doing nothing for your team when you should because, well, you did nothing for your team.

Taken to the extreme, I'd rather go 60-59 (with team going 0-0-60 assists all around!) instead of 2-0 (teammates total 58 other kills as well for a win).
Granted, if you didn't have a teammate bombing in all your kills to finish the game at a reasonable pace, the team who has a 2-0 guy will eventually be 3-0, 4-0, 5-0, 6-1, and however well forward. Given that they have extra time (in a timed game, but still plausible), they will also win the game in a different effective manner. But that's not to say going 60-59 is ineffective. Because it still won.
Going 2-0 over the course of a whole match--I'm certain some people find that fun. That is enjoyable for a select group of people who I don't believe I can sway. On the other hand, I'm also certain some people find getting 60 kills fun (in an ideal).
If you don't want to talk about ideals, I don't think you should probably talk about this "on paper." We don't have human error in a discussion saying "Well, I don't think you could go 60-59, it doesn't sound plausible." Because, even if it doesn't sound 100% plausible, it's still possible (hence, this being "on paper").
