Do you care about your K/D?

#81Xx_King_Beef_xXPosted 12/14/2012 7:45:03 AM
I couldn't really give less of a crap about my K/D because I mostly play objective based games. I might care a little bit if I only played Slayer matches, but even then I still wouldn't give much of a crap about it because I don't really take online gaming seriously like I did 10 years ago when XBL first came out and I wasn't married with children and was still living alone. I just play to have fun nowadays.

You don't even know what I think.


What you think is pretty clear from your previous posts. You think that how well someone has done in a game is based on their K/D, especially in slayer. A higher K/D indicates a better player. Pretty sure I just hit the nail right on the head with regards to what you think.

So lets say you have player A, who gets a K/D of +20 from a game of slayer, but his team still lost. Now lets say you have player B who got a K/D of +4, but the way in which he played allowed his team as a whole to perform better and subsequently his team won. A lot of people would agree that player B was better than player A overall.

What we get from this is that individual K/D is pretty much irrelevant in TS, team K/D is what matters.

Im fairly certain seiken has said that people who go negative in slayer are a detriment to their team.

Without taking anything from this little dispute into account, this statement is 100% correct.

No, I actually think the same. The previous post where I said that K/D meant everything in slayer was in response to someone who said it didn't matter at all in general , which is wrong. It's obviously more important that your team does well overal, but there is hardly a team when you play with people you don't know, which goes for me since all I do is play alone.

Actually, that depends on what the individual did to get there. If all he did was walk out into the open just to get shot, then yes obviously, but if he did so to acquire control of the map, a weapon, you name it, then no.
