True that, saw a guy with a 5.24 K/D, but awful SPM and W/L. Sure enough towards the end of the game (which he spent lying in a room aiming at a door) he dashboards as it hasn't gone his way. Sent him a message and got one back saying 'u jealous', to which I explained that anyone can camp and dashboard for a high K/D and that SPM and W/L are better indicators of a players skill. Didn't hear back from him.
Gotta remember too when the game launched the connection wasn't the best for alot of people(myself included) but most all of us grit our teeth and kept playing going negative and nothing we could do about it b/c we were being 1 shotted(to us, but obviously kill cam told a different story) by PDWs and then they fixed the game(for the most part) so we're slowly raising our K/D up to where it should be. I'm sitting at a semi low K/D(still above a 1 though) right now but if I wanted to reset my stats I would very easily be in the high 1s to mid 2s, but I don't want to lose PM, diamond ARs and SMGs,and 31k+ kills.
I've generally had a decent connection, first week was near unplayable and after that I just get the odd match where I'm clearly behind the enemy team or people are rubber banding. My TDM and overall K/D had been climbing steadily until I decided to go for diamond specials. That fu*king shield...
I've just got back to pre shield levels and going up again now.
I could reset and have mic better stats but I'm not giving up my weapons mastery!
its improveing for reasons i dont know but slowley the game is starting to become playable for me also
There are a few things that affect this...
In past cod games I have always had a KD that was 2+. I never use to dashboard or do anything to inflate my stats.
In this game my KD is sitting at about 1.6 to 1.7 which I feel for me is poor. I struggle most games to get kills, not because I feel I have suddenly lost my skillz, but because of the delay I get being behind everyone.
I have also been doing some of the weapon challenges and using some of the crap weapons means for a short time my KD will drop.
I use to have players on my friends list that had KD's in the 3+ but now I do not have a single friend above 2. They all seem to have the same problem as me for the most part.
I think the people who do have high kd's are the ones who are either in constant Godmode due to the lag issues or people who dashboard.
My Kd isnt great on this game cus it took me a while to get used to it and the killstreaks are harder to get but im still hitting 3s each week and I can tell you for a fact it doesnt have anything to do with dashboarding,Lag comp or camping. Not everyone is like what you think
I don't want to sound like I am taking anything away from you or anything.
I know there are good players out there. I do have my good games as well...
dashboarding and all that I know is just down to the player, but when you say it's got nothing to do with lagcomp, how do you know that for a fact? I mean when you have a good game how do you know it was not because the other team are on the receiving end of it ?
I ask because that is something on my mind constantly. I have had games were I know I am working hard for every kill, and others were I know this is just too easy and I see people on the other team and think they must be screwing!
Well, what I meant was that in my case and that of the good players I play with on my friends list, we dont dashboard. I'm sure there a many many people who do. I just wanted you to know that its not everybody.
How I know its not lag comp is because my friends and I have been playing these games for years and we always do the same title after title and game after game, pretty much. I cant remember the last game any of us were negative in a match so if it was lag comp surely we would be on the recieving end of it aswell. I have super fast fiber optic broadband so not as if I get an advantage like like low connection users are suppose to do.
I honestly think most of the time people are blaming Lag comp is simply because their reactions are not fast enough. Looking at a killcam afterwards doesnt always help the cause cus I dont think it is an exact record of what actually happend. Does anyone know if that is true?
