1-1.5 is good enough 1.5-2 is be on my team anything above 2 is great below 1 is bad
I like to keep the K/D to lower scores than usual (assuming the guy plays only slayer) because Halo is a very assist based games. I've gone through games with more assists than kills but that doesn't increase my K/D so I like to think if you're slightly above 1, you get a good amount of assists.
I was a 2 when I started, but I am like a 1.2 now just because of the absurd amounts of shaky mechanics and lag I have plus my trueskill places with me incredibly skilled players in which I have to try hard every single match just to kill once.
The introduction never had a name, and all the answers to my questions never came.
I find it hilarious when people say the average K/D is around 2. By definition the mean K/D is 1 (since there are an equal amount of kills as there are deaths). Now if you mean median K/D than maybe it's more than 1, but I doubt that since the people with extremely high K/D's probably have more of an effect on the mean K/D than the people who have extremely low K/D's.
With this game K/D doesn't mean much because of the True Skill system, and the fact that it doesn't take into account things like assists, distractions, etc. My K/D isn't very "good", but that's mainly because I mostly play dominion. In dominion my goal is to get bases, stop other teams from getting bases, and harassing the other team. That often means suicide runs and shooting turrets/doors more than shooting players.

first of all K/D means nothing for objective gametypes
second it's not just that you look at when judging game performance, you have to look at assists as well. Someone who goes negative on K/D but racks up tons of assists has helped their team just as much as someone who goes positive
Another way KD is deceiving concerns who you play with. The two friends that I play slayer the most with a freaking good and get most of the kills. I do my part with lots of assists, but usually only 8 to 10 kills.
When I play on my own or with other less skilled friends I typically do much better – 20 some kills and single digit deaths.
So my KD averages between these two play types, but has no bearing on my skill
