The highest K/D on record broken by XxBonavaxX13 had an amazing K/D. 21.83! Thats well over what can be believed. Most of you probably think he camped for it, but I don't really know. Whether he camps or rushes, he still obtained it.
But heres the thing: Does this make him the most skill player of all time?
K/D is a tool used to measure a player's kills and deaths. K/D is created by taking the total amount of kills somebody has and dividing it by the total number of deaths somebody has. The number you get is your Kill/Death Ratio.
It is not certain whether or not it matters, it is pretty hard to find out a logical answer. Many people have came up with ways to try and say why it matters and why it doesn't. Its pretty hard to fight each side for it.
Here's an example:
Somebody goes on the CoD Forums and gives his reasonings as to why K/D does matter. His explanations are logical, and make sense.
Then, somebody else goes on the CoD Forums and gives his reasonings as to why K/D doesn't matter. Still just as logical as the other post, but there's a problem.
Both posts are just as logical and agreeable with one another, but if somebody takes one side, he can't really fight the other reasonings because they really have no connection or link between each other.
But, how can it determine skill? Well, it pretty much says how many kills you have for every death, so why doesn't it matter? It hard to say. Skill can only be expressed in a functional way. Is somebody who camps that has the same score as somebody who rushed just as skilled?
For what some players do, and the gamemodes they play, it matters at a different level. TDM players really are just going for kills so somebody's K/D score at the end of the game really does matter. Because in TDM your going for nothing but kills. But how?
Well usually in games players on all teams have a different amount of skill. The one player we are focusing on can correspond with all this. His runs into a player, and the player he is going to face has more skill than him, but all depending on the weapon he uses he probably will lose that gunfight. Then after that death he gets a kill because he runs into a player with less skill. This can go on and have a trillion mixes to it, but when it comes to that, that one player must learn how to dodge the more skilled players and run into the less skilled players.
There are 2 other stat factors that can have the same power as K/D: W/L Ratio and Score Per Minute. If these 3 are linked, then yes it really can matter. High K/D, high SPM, and high W/L probably means he is good and that his K/D does matter. Because his SPM means he plays actively not campy, and W/L means he doesn't rage quit or verse noobs. Again, there are many mixes to this.
So, if you think about, K/D can only matter if it has SPM and W/L as a backup. Let me know what your opinions on this is, and thanks for reading.
