I have a 1.95 with the Honey Badger and that makes me? I would assume you'd say camper but my perks are Ready up, Quick draw, Marathon, Focus, anti kill marker and I think amp or ICU is the last. I can tell you now I know how to pack on the miles.
If you use the right guns for running and gunning (none of the SMG's) you'll do just fine in the game.
This type of thread can go in so many directions. If they camp then the gameplay is slow and tedious but they can keep a high K/D. If all they do is run and die, run and die, etc...Then the killstreaks never stop making the game miserable. If the K/D number was removed I do believe more players would come out and play a bit more. Everyone hates dying, but at leat they wouldn't have a number to always look at. I just like to see mine above a 1.0...That just means I am not hindering the team, but I am still not camping and having fun. My son doesn't give a S*** about his K/D. Reminds me on how much FUN we SHOULD be having while playing. He equips a gun and goes for broke. He isn't to shabby with the shotties, and STILL manages to pull first on the leader boards every few games.
The only problem with this theory is that even if KD was removed, if Kills and Deaths were still displayed, people could look at them and compare them and figure out their KD by themselves.
Example if someone had 5,000 kills and 6,000 deaths, you would know their kd was under a 1.00 etc.
The only way to eliminate KD would be to eliminate Kills and deaths tracking as well ;b
I agree totally. I like seeing those types of stats, but it does lead you to play a certain way so as to KEEP those stats. Thus, we have campers and such. I had a lot more fun in COD4 when I first started playing COD then I am having now. I didn't know what did what or what number meant what. I just grabbed a gun and did tried my hardest to win. I wasn't very good, Lol, but I had fun playing.
Removing kd (which I would be fine with btw) would only change the play of those that like to brag about their stats. Not having concrete proof of their true stats would allow them to feel more comfortable doing worse and then embellishing their stories of just how great that they are. I don't know how much of an impact that would have on the game though. I would imagine that most folks that play just play for fun and aren't overly worried about their stats anyway.
