# Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I have tried and tried and tried to get a MOAB and failed. Im 16th prestige with a KDr of 1.37, i was wondering if any of you that have got 1 have a K/Dr of 1 or less.

Im just bored and was thinking about these stats and was wondering how low yoyur K/Dr was when you got 1.

My friend was 0.92.

I hope i have explained my question properly.

Relatively skilled player + bit of good luck = minimum to get MOAB

All score in all games regardless of trying or screwing around = K/d

Therefore K/d is not an indicator of what someone could acheive unless they try hard ALL the time. Therefore it's a useless stat when attempting to ascertain the chances of a player getting a long killstreak.

There is a currently no stat in CoD which accurately tells you how good a player is

Sorry maybe I wasn't explicit enough in my implication.

There IS NO answer to your question - because the point of your question is null and void.

"If I have 10 ice cubes and you have 11 apples - How many pancakes will fit on the roof?"

see what I mean?

11 pancakes will fit on that roof. HaHaHa!! It was a simple mathmatical equation. You simply take the apples, put them in the ice and place them on the roof. When ice melts ans apples go rotten, they will look like little pancakes...hence the answer to your question. 11 pancakes sir!!....................(sorry had to go there Lol)

LOL

There are 4 stats that combined tell you how good a player is. KDR WLR SPM and win streak. Win streak is to determine if they pull plug to save their stats.

Ive never seen babe ruth play baseball but I know he's great. You know why? Cause I can see his stats like average, HR's and championships he's won. Stats are very definitive.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

Having a high winstreak doesn't necessary mean pulling the plug. Although it's a sign of possibly pulling the plug, it can also mean they just win a lot.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I have a 1.7KD and I have never gotten one, or seen one happen during game play to me.  But, I only play TDM.  I sure if I played a camping game I could do it.  But my team would have to be hide and go seek champions and get a low amount of kills, and the other team would have to be rushers, low accuracy, and not use assassin.  Maybe, ill try to do it playing KC, Dom, or team Def.

I am very skeptical of MOAB videos I see online, because if I was in the game I would definitely kill you before you got one.  At least in TDM.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I am skeptical of the majority of the videos because they run through the game in open areas without taking any damage.  Or if they control one area, there arent any revenge killers that know how to flank?

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

i have a 2.61 kd and ive only blew 5 moabs on my enemies face.

however i have a friend of mine who has a 1.7 kd and he manage to get moabs all day long.

anyway, just like dtrain4569 said, theres no valid answer for your question.

also, moabs happen, dont plan it.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I have a K/D of 2 exactly and I've had 2. They both took me by suprise, I've never tried for one. I've never had one against me though.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

Are these during TDM?  Not trying to deny your MOAB but I think this would be really hard?  Did you get a title/emblem for it?

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

1 FFA, 1 HC TDM, 1 K/C and I got one last night in a game of Demolition which was a suprise, not only was I not expecting it but I hadn't played MW3 for months.

Having the skills is not enough, you also rely on a bit of luck and a game with a good connection. MW3's multiplayer is too chaotic and unpredicatable to be in control all the time. It is a split of 50/50 whether I'm a second ahead of my competition of a second behind. MW3 is not fair competition. I stay on Black Ops for this reason. It isn't perfect but it is still competative.

MOABs are a lot of shite anyway. They just promote selfish gameplay among those desperately trying to prove to themselves and their mates they are any good. Don't piss your pants over them and you will be a better player.

Had 1.8 k/d on xbox 10th prestige lvl 80 back in January, finally got my moab.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I have 7 MOAB's with a 1.56 K/D if you really want a MOAB go play ground war have hardline pro, recon pro, flash grenades and semtex. Don't get into the action too much and keep picking them off from afar. you'll eventually get one. it's not to hard if you know good sightlines and traffic flows. it's a bit harder in tdm but not impossible to do in GW TDM.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I have had quite a few MOABs only playing TDM and my KD is 2.52 with over 100k kills.

With that said in TDM it almost takes a perfect storm for one to be fired off.

You have to be somewhat decent and lucky at the same time.

Obviously the team your playing has to be less skilled but the same needs to be for your team as well. You cant have several really good players on your team or you simply wont have enough time to reach 25 kills.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I kind of agree with dtrain, there is no answer to the question.  The majority (not all) of MOABs that I have seen have been achieved through boosting, in such circumstances your KDR is irrelevant as it isn't true, and you could have a KDR of 0.4 and get one this way.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

I have a feeling some wont like what I say but I dont count moabs when hardline was used. It's just my opinion but that's how I feel about it. I've never actually gone for a moab but I've been close at a rushing 23 killstreak. My teammates get them every now and then so I don't really care about it myself.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

Sorry guys but some people don't understand my question. What im asking is basically is how high or low your KDr was when you got a MOAB. Just interested to see if any 2+ guys got a MOAB and if any of you are below 1 KDr when you got one.

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

Infected has kind of ruined who has and hasn't gotten a MOAB because I've seen 0.6 KDs with MOABs from infected.

The lowest KD on my freinds list with a non infected MOAB is 0.92 and I've seen a few 3+ KDs that don't have MOABs when I check the lobby leader board

• ###### Re: Whats the lowest K/D ratio of someone getting a MOAB and the highest K/Dr of someone who hasn't got one?

Btw, my k/d has always fluctuated between 2.65  to 2.70. 95% have been in tdm.. Most are on whytie84 channel on youtube.

OP,

Even if there was an attempt at a numerical measure (KD) to answer your question, it wouldnt really tell you much.

The KD stat is highly influenced by so many other things, other then a players skill. It appears you are attempting to find out if you're good enough or not to get one yet (I'd guess you're a relatively new/weak player that has steadily improving for some time?)

The thing is, this stat is so unreliable at measuring skill/ability, that its fairly pointless to use this as your measuring stick.

The best way for anyone to measure their progress in this regard is simply to keep trying (prefarably with the specialist package) and to keep trying to beat your highest streak.

Although TDM generally has weaker players then objective game modes, the mechanics of it (ie the 75 kill limit) in turn makes it harder. Therfore, the players most likely to accomplish a MOAB in TDM (regular anyway) are those that are more "hardened" in objective modes who "go back" to TDM. They'll generally, more likely have the ability to get the MOAB in the style that is virtually almost required to get one in TDM (ie, rushing) but have easier opponents to do it against.
