Yes, but there are many factors and variables that easily make it pointless. But there is never a great player with terrible stats. In my opinion the best way to determine their skill level is when you either play with or against and judge on that particular matter.
KDR can only really be a measure of either:
1. How much someone has quit
2. How much luck people had running into lesser opponents
It is never a measure of how good someone is, my KDR is okay, BUT... I always have a party that has my back so they save me from many deaths I would have had if I was lone wolfing it. There is the fact that I enjoy playing with my buddies but that isn't really the debate here.
Back to KDR. Those with a lower KDR will improve so you'd start off with a low poor KDR and get better over time so in that case your KDR does not represent how you are as a player.
In my case.
I stopped playing as much so I'm way out of sync with the game I'm even pressing square to reload.. LOL even though my KDR is kinda somewhat decent, my skills are on a pretty low set so that doesn't represent my KDR either.
KDR is not important because skills fluctuate for whatever reason be that improvement or getting worse.
In my opinion, you can usually expect people with a good kdr to be tough opponents. But that doesn't mean they do well in every single game.
No matter how good your ratio is though, if someone else did better in the match, he did better. No high ratio will change anything about that and using it to show off is just stupid.
I have a guy on my friends list with a 4.3 KDR in Uncharted 2 and 7.10 KDR in Uncharted 3.
I also have a guy there with a 2.2 KDR in Uncharted 2 and 3.05 KDR in Uncharted 3.
Let´s just say the 2.2 KDR guy is about 12 times better than the 4.3 KDR guy.
This is just one example but hope that answers your question.
No, KDR does not depict skill level.
1. Since all those Plunder kills where I got killed because I PLAYED THE OBJECTIVE don't mean I'm a bad player.
2. I let my friends (who are terrible at the game) play on my account.
3. Everyone's bad (to a certain extent) when they start out playing the game, you get better with time.
and let's not forget all the stupid deaths this game throws at you, lag, shotgun AK's, you know the deal.
I don't really play Uncharted 3 much anymore...
Those with low KD's don't even bother using the whack n roll, but that's mostly splitscreeners.
Those with higher KD's are more likely to use ROF, QB, PW kickbacks and find it hard to aim the KAL.
Somewhat. People with 1 KDRs seem to be on the same skill level. People with 2 KDR and 3 KDR can tend to be just as good as eachother. People with a KDR of 3 tend to be better than the ones with 2 though. But when it comes to 4 and above, the skill level doesnt really change that much. 4 - 10 KDR are pretty much the same, then there are exceptions with the people that stat quit immensely and have a KDR of like 7 but play like they would have a 2.
And dont try to outscore me in public TDMs, u wont succeed
Nowadays I played U4 for around 3 months in the top competitive scene for team GET+ / GETPOISON (with 5 of its original members from U2 and U3) and had a overall record of 300+ wins and 30 losses on UMG before pretty much retiring as lack of competitive support and a worthwhile game killed the scene.
