Why do you care about K/D ratio it doesn't make you better

Inferior players get so upset when you state the fact they are in no way good. So cute.

Blite is correct. K/D is a bad way of determining if someone is good.

If someone is good, they have a good KD.
If someone has a bad K/D, that someone is bad.

The converses are not true.

More like inferior players making up excuses so they can feel better about themselves

Are you talking about Slayer or Objective based games?

If it's Slayer/Deathmatch games, its most certainly important, if not most important. More kills means more points for your team. Less deaths means less points for the enemy team and less baggage for your teammates to make up. If you have a high K/D, your team is going to win unlesssomeone is acting as dead weight and counterbalancing your score.

Objective based games, no, it's definitely not most important, but has importance, and can be useful if the player is working with the team(contrary to popular beliefs, the concepts are not mutually exclusive. If you can get alot of kills without dying, then you make a perfect defender(especially if you are good at getting multiple kills at the same time). Sure, it mght be nice to have a person more willing to take bullets for me when Im running the flag, but I'd much rather have someone who can get kills and prevent any enemy bullets in the first place :P

Anyway, this argument is largely meaningless as most people who care about K/D ratios focus on Deathmatch styled games rather than Objective games anyway.

Because the games themselves dont give us enough reason to care to play them, so they throw stuff like challenges and k/d at us to give us motivation to play semi boring games.

Pros: The pills were there.
