      Had this been OT I would of made that an option but I'm not sure how lenient things are here rather than over there...

      Well, seeing as options 1-4 are mostly for competitive multiplayer FPS games and I don't play them, the only choice that's relevant for me is 100% completion. I would have selected fun/entertainment.

      In an FPS K/D is my main thing. Even when playing a support role. Dead support doesn't support.

      Turn based RPG: DAMAGE. I love the single-round kill.
      Action RPG: DPS dealt or tanked.
      All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

      90+% of games I play for the single player story experience, that is what matters most to me, however, when playing online I prefer a good k/d ratio, to me that is playing it smart, thinking things through and trying to accomplish a win.

      Now with those majority I play for the story, yeah I'll try to find the collectibles (if I get something for it, like concept art, vids, etc) though if I don't score 100% I'm not kept awake at night nor do I feel the itch to play the game over just because...... :/

      It's like asking about vehicles specs and statistics.

      Either I like driving something or I don't.
      It really has nothing to do with the specs or statistics.

      Did the thread title always read statistic? If so then I suppose I fail at reading comprehension as fun & entertainment don't count as stats.

      100% completion it is.

      I just find it extremely odd that people can't have fun playing a video game and simultaneously have a nice K/D, W/L, SPM... or on the flip side having nice stats means you're a try-hard not having fun

      Me having a nice K/D in no way shape or form takes away from my experience of the game... in fact it only makes it more fun for me.

      Since when does having nice stats mean you're not having fun playing a game I don't have to do anything differently to have nice looking stats, I still play the game just as I normally would... oh well :shrugs shoulders:

    16. 07-27-2013 04:46 PM #16
      Because games which have "stats" like K/D etc...are normally competitive FPS games, which in turn draws more overly competitive *******s who ruin the enjoyment of the game for everyone else.

      Stats aren't really a part of any games that I play now.

      Fair Enough. I guess in my mind I have everyone playing CoD but I can def. see your point.

      A respectable 1.01 The online multi-player is super challenging and I remember it taking a long time to break .99 Haven't touched this game months. I'm ok with my 1.01 K/D in Halo but for CoD I like to be at about a 1.5 K/D

      most important statistic is:


      Enjoyment level
      ------------------
      Annoyance level


      a 2/1 is almost where I am when I start any game. it can then go anywhere from 5/1 to -5/95

      i have a ****ty k/d (~0.80), and i'm not great at TDM (0.75-1.25). however, i when i play objective-based games like domination, all i care about is capping and defending. i couldn't care less about my k/d in those game types, just as long as i'm helping the effort to win. that being said, i chose score per minute.

      Depends on the game but I think it also relates to the team you're on... At least in the case of BF3 with 64 players. A terrible team usually means your K and points are going to suffer. I think score in BF3 is a decent indicator but again you have to also weigh it against W:L. It's bloody difficult tho not impossible to get MVP or Ace Squad on a losing team. And by losing team I don't mean the match was close, I mean the majority of your team should rage quit and uninstall.

      For sure. But statistically speaking it all balances out over thousands of games. Good players still play better than bad players... and carry better stats. People who say stats don't matter in WoT probably haven't ever taken a statistics class.

      I'm an officer in a decent land holding, gold earning, M60 winning clan, and also on a tournament team that gets top 5 finishes. We use player statistics for recruiting, and we've yet to find a player who's skill didn't match their statistics.

      You forgot a "none" choice. Gun to my head I'd probably pick W/L when it comes to CoD. I want to go positive, but I'd rather get a plant/defuse to help with a win and hear the other team cry in the lobby afterwards.

      As for your nice looking K/D, do I really need to post up the screen shot of your 0.74 again?
