Anyone denying KD Ratio is the go to stat in online multiplayer shooters especially the COD franchise is kidding themselves.
Use this board as proof positive. Look at the throngs of threads "Post your XXXX and your KD" "My KD is XXXX"
People who claim to "play the objective" are more often than not making an excuse for a painfully mediocre KD. I play games like DOM and CTF and the noobs who claim about playing objectively might have a cap or two. But they seldomly sacrifice themselves to the tune of 3-30 with 8 caps. It doesn't take talent to lie down on a flag and pray nobody shoots you in the back.
It is, always has been and will be a game where the basics are kill someone and don't get killed.
Put it like this, you cap 5 flags in domination and go 5-20, try bragging in the post game lobby. You got 40-5 with no caps, hey man... you wrecked shop.
KD is what matters, I'm done with FAILJACKS whining about camping, or not playing the objective. You don't like it come and stop me.
Went 7-29 with 9 caps and six defends. I was the only one on the team with caps and had all but one defend. That was the greatest game of the ones ive played. Oh! Did i mention we won? Its not all about KD. People who tend to care for KD just play hardcore and what not. I had a blast on that game, and ive gotten 40 and 11 kill games, but that was no where near that 7-29. KD is something to boost your confidence. Objective is where the real players are at.
People create so many definitions for the word "we". "Wii", "Wee-Wee" and "Wii Wii" (As in French for Yes or Sure...) :l
