Everyone on your team could have a high kdr and still lose. I dread playing against peeps with a 400-600 SPM.

I see a lot of players with 400+ SPM and <1 K/D's. It isn't hard to run around like a maniac.

It's the most reliable, but even that is skewed and often not really representative of skill.

Someone could be an amazing player, but their SPM could be terrible because they decided to get gold camo for their assault shield. Or they could be a terrible player but have a high SPM because they cap the beginning flag of Dom and immediately quit over and over again.

What mode do you play in? In TDM, I never seen a 300/400+ SPM with a <1 K/D. I think the lowest K/D I've seen with 300+ SPM was like a 1.5.

I agree, mostly. SPM is definitely a better indicator of skill than kdr, though. 10-2 is a badass kdr but you sure aren't helping much.

My kdr is 1.11 with a 301 SPM, so im like a boss at neither.
