What is considered a good / above average KDR / SPM?

Black Ops II Xbox 360

What is considered a good / above average KDR / SP...

As the title says. I don't really see peoples K/Ds in lobbies as I mainly play KC, usually only see that when I play FFA. SPM in lobbies usually varies between around 200 and 450 most of the time, I know from the leaderboards though some people have 600-700 SPMs, god knows how they manage that.

Don't worry or pay attention to KDR, W/L or SPM.

Just play the GAME as a GAME.

Stats are for people with uber L337 Y0u7U8e channelzzzz

That's not a very helpful reply, I'm just curious.

Actually he summed up a good answer very well.

At any rate, you can find the answers you are probably looking for if you search the forums for "average K/D ratio," as it's been brought up before.

If that's too much trouble, it could be that the answer is much lower than you would think. If you were to ask most people here, they'd say "good," would be in the 2's or 3's, but that's not really representative of the 500,000 people that play at a given time.

The majority of players are upside down on their KDR. (<1.0) If you can maintain >1.0 you're doing better than the majority of players. Is that good? Well...it's a subjective term when you really think about it, isn't it? If we compare to ALL players, then yes. But surely garnering a >1.0 isn't as impressive as doing it in a League with premiere players, is it?

Of course, this argument doesn't stop here. You have to factor in play style. A person may have played for 20 hrs and have a KDR of 4.0, but a SPM of about 100 or less. So you look at their stats, and see they have 100 kills and 25 deaths in that 20 hours. So clearly, they go 2-1 and run and hide for the duration of the matches. (To the chagrin of all their teammates.)

I'm not sure it's a question that can be satisfactorily quantified with any given values or logic. So really, you have to return to the original answer. Play the game and have fun. Don't worry about those numbers, because they don't mean anything.

Is it not just a simple case of math in regard to KDR?

1.0 would be the average across all players and game types because for every kill someone has someone else has a death although there would be some fluctuiation for suicides etc but it would be minimal.

The question wasn't what the average K/D is.

My K/D is overall about 0.8.  I run around like a crazy person, grabbing kills when I can.  Sometimes I can get Bloodthirsty, or even 7, or 8 kills.  But I get a BUNCH of Comebacks, if you know what I mean.

I'm new to CoD, and it took a lot of adapting, and I'm still learning.  I mostly play HTDM, so I don't make it easy.  I play HKC and HDom every now and again, but still my SPM is right around 200, 196, I think.  It's my playstyle.  It doesn't lend itself to an advantage, stat wise, but it's how I play.  I still manage all the good shots, and the Bloodthirstys when I need them, but it takes time.

At the end of the day, I get better with every match and I have fun, despite all the BS. But dying so many times in a row is really, really frustrating, no doubt.

Sounds like you're rushing a bit too much, no offense.

Doing well on HCTDM is IMHO about knowing when to rush and when to hold position, observe your team and be aware of spawns. You sound like the guy who always runs back for the revenge kill from the same direction and fails, again, no offense.

HCTDM is much faster paced in here than it was on MW3 but you still need to be a bit more cautious.

Which is why both K/D and SPM should be taken into account together, that will give a clearer picture of how somone is playing. As you say, someone might have a high K/D and low SPM, which indicates ignoring objectives / camping etc.

It all depends on your connection and playstyle.
