I don't get how some people can have a 0.50 K/D

#1JessicaJungxoPosted 3/25/2013 5:37:19 AM
So my friend wanted to invite his friend, can't argue that without looking like a dbag, so I oblige. His friend is very friendly and all, but his K/D is around 0.50... He goes on about how he won his last 3 games before joining, so maybe it's not all bad. I've carried my team in the past, why not now?

Well we lose some and win some, don't remember his exact stats other than a 0 kill 9 death Infinity CTF game on abandon....no captures either. I mean, the guy is in his twenties so it's not like a little kid picking up his older brother's controller for the first time...

Anyone run into a situation like this? Or maybe are you a person who has a similar K/D?

Slayer and CTF are completely different ya know.

It's just usually with my friends and Slayer with Halo in general some of them do either really good, or drag the rest of us doing all the work down with them. For example, one has this whole "suicide bomber" approach. His words, describes it as at least if he dies he will take his killer with him with a plasma grenade. Which wouldn't be so bad, but most of the time he either fails, or keeps going off alone and gets gunned down by three other guys.

That same friend also sprays from obscene distances with the AR and Needler. Just wish sometimes he would try and learn some DMR or BR skills to offset his, run and gun style.

Can't complain too much more now as my Halo career is over.

i will readily admit that i suck at this game, but i maintain a solid 1.0 k/d. the guy might have a really bad k/d but how is he with helping out team mates, using call outs or throwing himself between the enemy and his team mates? i have a few friends that i play with on a pretty regular basis that absolutely suck at multi but are really damn good at camapaign and spec ops.

That's when you say "uh... yeah guys I have to go." then you go hidden offline and just play with someone else or solo.

Some people just aren't good at video games. Some haven't even really played games until recently, hard as that is to believe.

I have a buddy who's about 34. Former marine, shooter in real life, etc. He finally got an XBOX last year so I told him about Halo 4 so we could play online as we live across country now. Holy crap was he the worst Halo player in the history of the world. I mean, campaign co-op, no idea where to go, what to do, etc. bad. When he did do decent in some situations, he was so focused and concentrated that his mic went completely silent. I tried saying some things to him and he was just so focused, to achieve so mediocre results, that he couldn't really hear me or respond. He went back to playing Tiger Woods golf and we just BS on party chat while I play whatever game I'm playing at the time.

Some people just can't do it. *shrug*

My buddy. We started playing Halo CE years ago when it first came out. We both were good, we both went to tournaments here in california. He went on to become a CoD player, these are his H4 stats:

I have a very good friend who is exactly like this! He lives out of state, so I was really excited when he got an Xbox because I could keep in touch and play some games with him. He bought blops 2 and invited me to a game. I looked at his stats, and he has a 0.33 k/d. His strategy is to just rush with an LMG and spray like Rambo. We lost every single game, but he was having the time of his life. Some people just really don't care. I mean, he can play however he wants, and good for him for enjoying his game. Now when he wants to play, I usually take host and set up custom games with bots. That way he can die all he wants and it won't affect anyone else on the team.

I'm planning to give him a copy of halo 4 this weekend for his birthday. Since he's not very good at competitive game modes, I'm thinking that campaign and spartan ops co-op will be a nice way to game with him. He can run around pretending to be Stallone, an I can at least work on some enemy commendations.

Nothing wrong in not getting any caps. Sometimes I can go several CTF games without one but as long as I'm in support, it doesn't matter.

Same with Grifball, I usually seem to be the only one either escorting our ball holder or hanging as goalkeeper trying to stop the other team scoring but I've gotten a lot of goals too.

Anyway, while I admit I'm not that good, I at least get kills in double figures almost every time I play and even when I don't, my kills far outweigh my deaths.

What does age have to do with it though? Maybe this friend of a friend only just picked it up?
