I agree with you. I think developers keep adding kdr into games because they are afraid of whiners wanting them so bad to show off. I rarely see multiplayer games without a kdr stat. Even if it's a very unimportant stat.

Oh no, now each player can see exactly how much he directly contributed to the team objective of getting 20 kills! Shame on you Naughty Dog! Don't you know that negative KD scrubs win all the games?

If you're afraid of the people that won't be helpful to the team, find a group of friends to play with. It helps a lot on team-based games like this game.

Shoud've had a system similar to Battlelog in Battlefield. Track EVERYTHING, revives,  heals, gifting, etc. I wish it was more Score per Minute/ Supplies - Downs - Kills - Revives - Deaths

When all have fallen, rise above the ashes.

To be honest.... My shooting skills are lacking.  I get more downs by setting traps, using molotovs/bombs and the nail stick.  I use a burst rifle more as a go away noise maker.  So I contribute with healing, revives, crafting, spotting and watching the sides and rear.  I think stats for that are pretty valuable too.

What I hate is people that drop what they're doing and ignore their surroundings so they can run over or stop and pop your down. If I see someone close to an enemy and they've downed him then I let them finish 'em off UNLESS we are both in immediate danger from another enemy and/or the enemy is about to crawl behind cover while my teammate doesn't have a clear line of sight or is reloading. That kind of crap is a serious problem in games like this. Kills being tracks is just another reason why sh...stuff like that happens.

It's the only thing that keeps this game really active.

Who cares? Sorry everybody but who cares? Idk about you but this doesnt change how I play because playing as a good team member = high KD.... With the game modes we have atm high kd pretty much means high win/loss... So who cares :smileyvery-happy:

Good job on implementing a leaderboard for individual kills and deaths in a game that's supposed to be promoting team tactics, ND. Now the KDR stat kids will be too busy trying to boost their stats instead of reviving teammates and sacrificing themselves for the good of the team.

Great work!

completely disagree! Kills are everything in this game with these two game modes... I would like maybe average heals per game, marks etc to be in leaderboard. but KDR is most important, if your KDR is low you are not a great team player in most cases sorry.... Good team players earn parts for marks, revives and heals.... parts are used to purchase ammo and armour enhancing your chance of survival and having a high KD.

Simple solution add WIN /LOSS leaderboard.... If thats not enough: For those with negative win/loss highlight names red on leaderboard, so we can brag about how much they suck! orange for a 1-2 W/L Green for 2+ W/L HECK DO SAME FOR KDR So what we want is double green players :smileyhappy: (I just wanna see the size of my W/L **bleep** take a picture of it and use it in my job application and dating profile......) Simple solution
