Search, FFA, team death match. I would say K/D is more important in those modes. And search just absolutely tanks SPM. Other modes I would say SPM is way more important.
OK correct me if I'm wrong but isn't SPM the single most important stat in FFA? Yea K/D is important but isn't it who reaches 30 kills first? I mean.. I doesn't matter if you go 29-1 if the other person ahead of you goes 30-32.. Seriously...
I knew FMGs would be OP before the game came out: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/995751-call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3/59204323
lol no. If you want to talk abou stats, that's not true. guy baely going positive or around there with high spm isn't a good player. I'd much rather have a guy with high kd and average spm (250? iono some low numbers) over a guy with average player's kd (barely below 1) with high spm. It's better to have high numbers for both but between the two, the killwhore is the better player.
I see a lot of players with 400+ SPM and <1 K/D's. It isn't hard to run around like a maniac.
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.
Players in TDM have one of the lowest k/d in the game. No offense to those that mainly play TDM but almost no experienced players go there. KC>>>>>>TDM
Eh, I actually enjoy TDM. Because you don't get extra points for tags/objective, most of your kills will come from guns. I guess many noobs are in it, but I've played other game modes and it's just too chaotic.
Someone with a 500+ SPM in Dom, KC, or Hardpoint, regardless of the K/D (although I don't see how one with that high of a SPM would have a terrible K/D), will at the very least contribute greatly to his team. In objective game modes, skill equates to playing the objective, playing smart (as in not racking up pointless deaths), and trying to carry the team to a win. So in this case, SPM is a measurement of skill.
