Kill/Death apparently means something around here

EDIT: my point is being missed. I didn't ask if a high ratio makes me a good player, I asked why, when I give an opinion about the game, a typical answer is "your kd sucks stfu you're stupid and don't matter". Pretty sure Bungie would like opinions from everyone, not just good players. Then they know how to reach a wider market. Is that not logical? Mine sucks. Putting that out there to save everyone the time of looking up my profile, seeing it blows and posting it. That said, apparently a high kill/death ratio means your opinions are worth more than mine because "you suck, get good n00b lulz". So, someone explain to me when not being good at this game meant my opinion about the game doesn't matter. This should be good.

      • The K/D for me isn't thinking someone is good, it's just a standard that I put myself in personally. So when I have anything lower than a 2.0 K/D I do as much as I can to raise it up to my standard. But overall no, whatever your K/D is doesn't determine how skilled you are. Who knows, maybe you play a lot of objective games and your the guy who always has to take one for the team and roll the dice on dying to get the objective.

      • Actually I think point count more then k/d. But then my k/d is around .8 so what do I know. Still, point totals are what the game ranks you by, and that seems to reward players who play to the objective as well as get kills. Personally, I don't care if people think i'm bad at PvP. I still love it either way and I will shoot you in the face with a smile on mine.

      • Well it actually does to a certain degree. Control for example is setup so that u get points by getting kills and owning flags just multiplies your score. In doing so anyone that is below a 1.0 kd is actually making your team lose. So in that sense kd matters. However kd isn't the end all be all and shouldn't be used to see if someone's opinion is valid or not nor does it make 1 person better than another in all aspects of the game. That's just childish.

      • Well right now I've got a 3.45 ratio which I'm sure will change with time. I don't consider it an important factor in determining a player's skill level because everyone has good and bad games. Even with my ratio I got a terrible 0.23 in iron banner once.

        • I don't check stats so idc. I'm sure with my usual matches I am above a 1.0 which is in it's right a good KD. There's 2 types of people in competitive gaming, objective players and the slayers. Knowing your role is the first battle.

            • Personally, I play games to have fun. Not just to bump up a stat for bragging rights. I am aware that's fun for some people though. But seriously, if you're playing a game that you've [i]paid[/i] for, then your opinion is of equal importance whether you have a K/D of 100 or -100.

              K/DA is the stat you should be looking at for individual players skill. The PARAMOUNT is Win/Loss ratio though. The strenght of the Pack is far superior to that of a Lone Wolf, and W/L reflects this teamwork.

              Don't pay anyone any mind when it comes to stats in a video game. None of it matters in the game and you're sure as hell not putting down on a job application how high or low your k/d is in Destiny.

              Some one called me out that I suck in PvE, saying that I am a scrub cuz of my KDA. This is a BETA remember ? To find those sweet spots on strikes u will die. And my KDA must be under 200 in the tower ... oh god!

            • K/D matters in every game when it's infested with people who think they are superior because they can farm for hours to get good loot or level up enough to get the best items. I assure you, K/D doesn't mean anything. I die more than I get kills, but that's because my ass is capturing objectives to help my team win.

              • My k/d isn't the greatest, but I get the "objectively correct" badge near every game. It's when you have the most, or tied with the most point captures and in the current game mode we have, I think it's important

              • In the forum? unless we are specifically talking about crucible strategy, ones K/D ratio is completely irrelevant anyway and so why would any one take the time to look someones up. Even in a crucible conversation there are plenty of people that know the strategy but fall into a do as I say not as I do category.

              • Honestly, I could care less about my K/D in these Capture matches. I'm an objective player and I usually lead my team in that category. Is my K/D miserable? Hell yes it is. But if focusing on capturing more than killing the other team, in this game mode, makes me an "awful player who should never play again, K/D FTW DERP" then so be it.

              • KD ratio arguments are placeholders for lack of any real knowledge to drop used by people who havent mentally developed over the age of 8 and have yet to learn to debate coherently.

              • k/d is a useless stat in any FPS type game. Unless ur playing team death match of some kind... As this is an objective base pvp i would rather see objective points taken per game than kills per game just my 2 cents
