High KD & Game style on TDM

Izjar11

COD,

 

Has anyone else noticed when checking the leader boards playing (TDM) when someone has a very high KD ratio of 2.5+ they are the first ones to plant them selves in a corner?

 

I am not complaining, I do not care about how you play, I find it curious and well a relief that my KD isn't as high as some of these dudes simply because I do not run in a corner and wait. What happens next is they are getting easy kills and calling in air support, increasing there easy kill streaks.

 

So if your on TDM check the leader boards, I would say that 7 out of 10 of the very high KDR dudes will be playing like this. Pay attention to obvious corners,  and get ready to fight them hard!

 

I prefer to put there high KDR to the test, and engage as often as possible.

    I never play TDM b/c I got tired of checking EVERY single corner I came across.  If I failed to check just one, there was an enemy, eating a sandwich, gun down, about to take a nap, just to have me blindly run past them and they get the kill........

      I've noticed a rather large increase in this style of playing in the last weeks or so, I can only guess it has to do with upping your KD to either enter a clan, or just seem better.

        I think more people are starting to get fed up with the lag issues. No one wants to run around trying to get kills because they feel that the lag will f*ck them over. I don't know how many times I've been in situations where I am behind an enemy emptying my magazine into his back only for him to turn around, shoot and kill me. I guess, they feel that camping will ease the problem?

    HCTDM has an objective.  Get more kills, get less deaths.  There are no "moral" victories for running around.

      HCTDM is another animal in itself, it is not the subject of this post but your right, morality plays no role in running, or hiding. I was merely pointing out my observation on high KD and game style in TDM.

  • Re: High KD & Game style on TDM

    Yeah but campers generally dont win matches. In tdm Its a race against your own teamates more than anything. You need to kill faster than your team can die. Well thats the way I look at it

    I play solo quite a lot these days so on MW3 I have played a lot of TDM, some games it seems everyone on opposition team is camped down (even on Dome, one clan 6 snipers) and I especially agree with a lot of the high KD's what also surprises is the level of 10-15th prestiges sat in corners? Elite status?

     

    But to be fair the fact you can have a couple of really good game's followed by 2 complete stinkers because host has changed or you are now host doesn't help.  I recently changed from 5mb down .6 up to Sky fibre 40 down 2 up and my KD has gone from 1.45 to 1.39 so many bad games now.

     

    Yesterday I played KC more run and gun and not a bad connection, will maybe try again later tonight.

      Right, and I do believe lag forces (at times) some to hide to avoid a worse game. But the cats that I've been encountering are more dedicated to the corner wait technique. Again I do not condone anyones style, its yours or theirs. I was thinking as I saw more players do this, this is how they get the high KDR.

       

      I play allot of TDM and if anyone out there wants to party up let me know. Send me your psn as a pm. Good luck COD.

    i usually like to run and gun with a smg .. but i will crouch in a corner when i need to reload or when i need just one more kill to get god mode in specialist ... BUT i have been to to camp like a mofo in bakarra just cause i think its sooo fun as players will try to smoke me out and its a cat and mouse game  of who can get the best of the other .. and i think its pretty fun on that particular map .. they throw a flash bang or a stun nade and then charge up the stairs i mow them down ..

    every once and a while they throw a semtex and it sticks to me and blows me up .. sometimes i after i kill 3 or 4 in a row they will team up to take me out and 2 or 3 will rush up to take me out so i find it fun .. and usually if they kill me i go right back and try to take that spot back . but some guys can get pod at me but i dont give a **** its my game il play how i want as long as im not cheating then i dont think you should cry .. if someone sends me a message i just tell them depending on my mood... to either eat a **** or, oh yeah ! well u can call me lord camping machine , or i apologize that i didnt play the game as they wanted me to play it .. and for me it doesnt bother me to get killed by a camper .. i just feel dump that i let myself get killed cause i didnt check the corners

    I normally take a look at the leaderboard and 9 times out of 10 the higher K/D players will be sad little campers. I've got someone on my friends list who has a 4.8 K/d and is the biggest rusher I've seen so there are exceptions.

     

    I've just played against someone with a 2.6 K/D ratio, on kill confirmed. The only time he moved, was if he died and was getting to to a new hidng spot. He lost and I told him if he moved they might have had a chance of winning. His response was "When your K/D is as high as mine, come back and see me. Get on my level." I had 10 more kills, a better K/D and actually collected tags. There's no reasoning with some people, they're just flat out retarded.

      Most people with a 3+ k/d on TDM are rushers with good knowledge of spawns. That is to say, they rush from vantage point to vantage point to get the jump on people who they just killed that are spawning again. Eventually it will look like they are always in the right corner or pop out at the right time as if they were camping, but in actuality it can't be camping if the same guy just killed you 4 times on opposite sides of the map back to back.

       

      I have a 3.40 tdm k/d, 4.90 w/l (due to playing in a party), and have a lotta 3, 4, 5 and even a 9 k/d friend and they're pretty much rushing from vantage point to vantage point. Gun skill has very little to do with your k/d, a 3 k/d person is simply a 2 k/d person that learned spawns and map knowledge.

        Yes, anyone with a 3 + KD is or should be a worthy opponent.

    I'm convinced that anyone with a high K/D over 2.0 is a camping sissy. That's the only way you can consistently get a k/d that high in TDM, either that or you have $9.99 internet or something to help you get on the good side of lag. My k/d is a terrible .89 (was .94 earlier this week but the game has been shat this entire week) however there are nights when I get on runs where I am going 20-30 kills with less than 10 deaths. I can average about 2.00 for an entire night, then get on the wrong side of the connection and I'm lucky if I can go 8 and 14 every game. If you try to run and gun you get slaughtered, I don't care what you map knowledge is or any of that crap. There is always some corner camping sissy waiting to shoot you in the back.

     

    I don't know what it is about MW3 that turned everyone into stat-whores, but I think the fact they let you see all the stats in the lobby was a bad idea. Now all anyone cares about is their precious K/d. I loved domination in MW2 but it is absolutely horrid in MW3. Everyone just waits till 2 flags are capped and then camps and pads their k/d. Kill confirmed is an awesome concept, but then why do I see people running past tags to try to get kills? Or getting kills and then not bothering to pick up the tag, or they watch their buddy get shot and just run past the red tags? WHY??? Because all anyone gives a flying crap about is k/d in this game. It has ruined the overall gameplay as much as the lag compensation. If you want to fluff your k/d than please by all means play TDM and FFA, stay the **** out of the objective game modes. It also drives me nuts when these so called "experts" put all these "50 kill double MOAB" blah blah blah vids out there pimping their k/d and then you see they are playing an objective game mode and just spamming kills.

    The way to play Domination is to cap 2 and sit back. Even infintiy ward endorses that game style. I always wonder why it is guys with low KDr who are the ones who complain about KD ratios. Butthurt?

      Honestly I could care less about k/d and no I am not butt hurt. My best game is 35-2 and I have many nights where I can play for 2-3 hours holding a 2.00-3.00 k/d in TDM no problems, then the lag takes over and I'm lucky to break even. The game is very inconsistent with connection and allowing you to have good games if you have a good internet service. I'm sure there are some awesome players out there who are legit 2.00+ but quite honestly in the 10 days I've played this game everyone in the lobby who is high k/d is a corner camping little baby who whines when someone finally flushes them out. It's always hilarious when a clan or bunch of 2.00 high k/d people get in a lobby and talk trash and they are the ones running halfway through the game when their team is down 15 kills.

       

      I understand that is how you play domination, the problem I have is there are a ton of people who sit in the objective games and just camp for kills instead of trying to cap flags or grab tags. Kill confirmed is probably the worst.
