It seems from some research on Elite, that players with a higher SPM also have a lower K/D. This makes sense because those who are playing the objective more can't help but have more deaths. And I noticed that in other games, I have a better K/D but my SPM is much lower. What do you guys think?
A lot of better players play against better players/clans to keep improving, therefore their k/d is bound to be a hell of a lot worse than a casual clan of douchers who play to spawntrap randoms or play super tryhard style in public TDMs because their precious stat = their e-peen.
k/d is more of a measure of how good the players you're playing against are, of course that's somewhat relative to your skill and also the conditions the games are played in (ie lag and what not) but the point still stands, if you play random people in public matches that aren't tryhard-ing and playing lame for thieir k/d of course you'll have a better k/d than people who regularly play against people at their own level of skill or better.
Also playing the objective, taking down enemy equipment and scorestreak rewards and putting out score earning scorestreaks that help the team (like UAV, EMP etc) will help SPM without really helping their own k/d, helping out the team like that is going to be more important to lots of good players who don't feel the need to show off k/d.
