spm isnt a good indicator in at least dm cuz nothing less than 1.00 kd, you are a determent to the team. i have bad spm but high kd and win ratio. all i play is dm so meh. once i get more confident. i may try multi next.
Kll Confirmed. So a guy that goes 18-33 and grabbed 37 tags is hurting his team? Hardpoint. 15-24 with 11 captures and 12 defends. You see what I'm getting at? The only game mode a negative KD directly hurts your team is TDM.
Yes a guy going 18-33 is hurting his team because he's died 33 times and gave up 33 possible tags to the enemy. Just because he blindly rushed tags doesn't mean he's really helping his team. You have to play smart. Also I don't think I've ever seen a situation where someone who got 18 kills confirmed anywhere near 37 tags.
Neither K/D, W/L nor SPM indicates for themselves if a player is "good" on not!
Sure, it depends on Gamemode, playing in an Clan, playing the objective and sometimes on the maps - but: Closely reading a players stats - and "last played matches" might show you if he´s "good", "average" or "noob"!
Anyway: You´ll only see it when playing against him - or with him!
I do not depend on playing with my clan - I am able to be a "game-changer" - if I am not playing with
some absolute beginners, people not playing the objective - and the oppenents stay playing the objective!
My stats are as follows:
Playing Time: 92,5 hrs. (71 hrs DOM, 15hrs TDM, 5hrs KC)
Total Score: 2,002,770
Total Kills: 14,207
over all K/D (not depending on Game-Mode!): 1.22
average SPM (not depending on Game-Mode): 361
W/L (not depending on Game-Mode): 65%
Prestige 5, Level 25
Clan-Level 11 (Medium Clan 25 Members)
On last weekends Clan-Op (Core TDM) I made 321 Kills in 2.5 hrs.
Almost the same in KC the week before...and before...
So judge yourself, if you think I am "good" or "average"....
I don't think SPM is all that important for two reasons
1) The higher the SPM the chances that someone psuedo boosts; where the go around and jump on tags that aren't theirs or camp objectives and until it's about to be capped and get the points. This happens a lot and is easy to spot if you're looking for it
2) SPM can go through the roof if you only go for kills. Look at DOM, 50pts a kill multiplied over 20 kills 1000 points. How hard is it to get a 30-40 kills in a DOM match? I don't think it's that hard at all. Mix in some offensive points for getting those spawnkills and you have a SPM in the 300-400's easily while maintaining a high K/D.
Does this show skill? No, it just shows how good you are of taking shortcuts
I agree! SPM might be reached this way in DOM - but: It must not!
People who do not play on the objective in DOM can easily reach 30+ kills - but there are also players who do play the objective and reach 30+ or even40+ kills in an DOM match!
SPM is not only an indicator for high kill ratio - it´s also an indicator for people playing
the objective successfully - and who do support their teammates!
I am never playing DOM only to get kills or even an + K/D!
If I am in an match with opponents who deny playing the objective, my K/D is going down sometimes on 0.50 - because I am playing the objective, I am never Spawn-Camping, camping or using "hiding Perks or attachments"!
When you play Dom, you're supposed to be defending the flags you have captured. In order to defend them, you need to stop the enemy from advancing into your territory. Camping by a flag in Dom or protecting a HQ can't be considered camping, that's what you are supposed to be doing. It's up to the enemy to come and flank you to gain control.
My SPM took a huge nose dive when we started playing sharpshooter. It's so much fun with friends though, that it's worth it.
Forget stats, there is only one sure way to find out if someone is any good or not. Watch them play.
