    My current kd is 1.85. I have been told that 1 is average, 2 is good, and a 3 is pro. Is this true?

    Just curious.

    No one should care.

    KDR doesn't make you good, it just shows you never play against people at your level.

    Free yourself from meaningless numbers and start enjoying the game.

    I mess around so much just to have fun. :/ When game time comes around, I can pull out the big guns though.

    Depends on the killcams - the worse the lag, the lower you should expect you KDR to be.

    I know, but kd's generally let other people know how good you are. If you are sporting a 0.20 kd, then you can't say your good. Likewise, if you sport an overall kd of 3.00, then your a pro.

    When I play agaisnt noobs, I get kds of up to 20.00. When I go agaisnt clans , I am lucky to get a KD of around 1.5. This is why total KD matters, not individual game KDs... because it is unlikely that you will play noobs every single game you play.

    Its more like this..

    .5 and less are crap
    .51-1.1 average
    1.2-2.0 good
    2.1-3.0 very good
    3.1-4.0 great
    4.1-5.0 pro/beyond good.

    i agree with synthetic. i started with a .47 and now upped it to 1.3 with about 30 hrs of play. Any player can play safe and rack up a high KDR in public matches but a good player communicates well, plays to his/her strengths, and understands the game and their opponents.

    I understand why its fun to keep track of that stuff - because it provides a sense of achievement, but you tend to forget to appreciate the game for what it is, which is a collaboration of graphics, sound effects, music, and very polished gameplay. Enjoy the game and don't get too wrapped up in the numbers.

    The way I look at it..If you are over 1.0 then you are contributing, if its below, your not.
    ( overall average, not per game type or per game.)

    That said, I don't even care what anyones kdr is...if you can have fun playing, i'll play with you.

    +1, I agree

    In the end does it really matter if you are so focused on your k/d ratio you miss the whole point of the game? FUN?

    But your kill death ratio in objective style games does not contribute to your overall kill death ratio.

    Does anyone understand how the K/D works? I'll be going 6 and 3 with a k/d of 2.00 and then I'll go 7 and 4 (which is still going plus 3) but it'll drop to like 1.50 or 1.75...it doesn't make sense. And it's also annoying sometimes I'll get kicked out of games before anything happens and it will say give me a 1.00 k/d for going 0 and 0, which can affect my 2.14 k/d ratio by some.

    It also doesn't make sense for them to give you a 7.00 k/d ratio if you went 7 and 0 because you can't even have a kill/DEATH ratio if you never died.


    When player A goes 1 kill and 1 death he'll get a 1.00 k/d ratio, and when player B goes 1 kill and zero deaths he'll also get a 1.00 k/d ratio...which is really stupid imo as it doesn't make any sense.

    /end off topic/slightly on topic rant

    KDR only matters in TDM and FFA.

    So if like me you also play the objective games and actualy play the objective I'd say 1-2 is good.

    K/d doesn't matter.

    I'm only at a 1.41 and that's good enough to me haha.

    As long as I'm getting more kills than deaths, I don't really care.

    I play a lot of headquarters, and get killed a lot because the dicks on my team care about k/d too much to help me capture it.

    Think it's 1.47 at the moment, so I'm happy enough with that.

    None of you all don't care about k/d cause you don't play TDM enough to care so look at it from peoples views who play tdm and not just objectives like the most of you

    yes it does, if it didnt i would have a kd of atleast 2.5, its the lowest my kd has went in a ffa except for dying then getting kicked, rage quit from noobtube or leaving to join a party. i play ffa rarely since its only 5k per game.always play objectives yet my kd is 1.12

    Sure fine a 1.0 is good enough for you but not for me. Everyone has their opinions like my k/d is a 2.47 so why would i not want to keep a good k/d and its not that good from camping my kill per min. is at least 2.75 don't get that from camping

    Dude, if you go 7 and 4, your KD is like a 1.75, not a 3.00. Your KD is your Kills divided by your Deaths.

    The no deaths, like I said, does not make sense, since you cannot divide by zero. So you can't have a KD if you don't have any deaths, so they just leave your kills as your KD.

    First of all K/D ratio is just measuring how many kills you got PER DEATH, and its calculated by K/D (kills divided by deaths). So if u got 6 kill 3 death u got 2.00 K/D ratio and not 3.00...Also when it comes to your OVERALL K/D ratio, the one u find in the combat statistics/playercard something, is calculated by absolutely all your kills and deaths ever, meaning if you get a 1.00 ratio with 1 kill and 1 death it won't "affect your 2.14 k/d ratio by a lot", it'll barely even make a difference on your overall K/D ratio.....Of course depending on how big your total kill and death count is, sure it will affect you if you got a total of 20 kills and 10 deaths....But the bigger your total kill and death count is the harder it will get to change your K/D ratio.

    Also the reason you get 1.00 when you have 1 kill 0 death is because 0 is rounded to 1 because you can't fucking divide by zero

    Great topic OP. I've always wondered the answer to this question. Since picking up Black ops I've hovered between 1.02 - 1.15 kd. I was pretty sure I suck but I guess I'm just borderline average.

    Judging ones skill by looking at their KD is stupid i could sit in a corner surrounded by claymores looking out a window and have a good KD. I think win ratio is a more accurate level of determining skill. I rush 90% of the time and play to win and have like a 1.6 KD mostly being killed by dipshit campers i would consider my self good. I just think anything over a 1.5 is "good"

    It depends.
    If your K/d is 1 but your win loss is 2+ then you're a better player than someone who have a 3K/d and a Win/Loss of 0.5.

    I don't count someone who camps with any weapon good.

    Agree with CCxS

    I agree with CCxSynthetic.

    KD ratio shouldn’t be as big of a factor. I tried to for a while, but it was meaningless. I wasn’t having as much fun because I only stuck with one class that was my best setup. While using that class I could get well into the 5.00 – 7.00 kdr per game.

    However, I like just enjoying the game more… like sniping, crossbow, stealth knifing, etc. It makes it fun for me, but my KD ratio sometimes drops below 1.00. However, I enjoy it much more sometimes.

    I agree on saying campers aren't good, obviously there just scared if you ask me but you can't say someone with a 3.0 k/d isn't good just cause w/l is a .5, what if he plays by himself a lot? the higher k/d person in a lobby gets matched with worse teammates to average out skill lvls for both teams. also keep in affect now on BO they have "kills per min" now so you can obviously tell who the campers are.

    Pretty sick of people camping in objective gamemodes to get killstreaks and high KDR. FFA and TDM are the only gamemodes that KRD is really relevant.

    I actually stopped playing domination and stuck with teamdeathmatch only because of your reason. I am killing myself trying to do the objectives, while my entire team camps. Sometimes I end up rage quitting because it's so frustrating to lose 200 to 40 while your entire team has a 5.00 KD.

    A good K.D only matter when your team wins the match. Losing means that you were playing selfishly and you were more concerned about your stats then your teams.
