Just out of curiosity, how many of you care about your kills and deaths ratio?

I have more deaths than kills from being abused in free roam.

I noticed some people in the GTAO make a big deal out of KDR and some don't. What are your thoughts?

My thoughts: Should have made a poll.

 

Anyway, I don't care about KDR in GTA Online. As someone who doesn't play DMs it is a meaningless statistic.

I do, but I don't make a big deal out of it. I'd probably stop playing if it dropped below 1.00 because of my OCD.

The only time it matters to me is in deathmatches. It's too easy to get kills in free roam by grieving or camping in well traveled areas.

As long as my K/D is over 1 in team deathmatch I'm happy. It at least means I got more points for my team than points for the enemy team.

... I don't care about my KD ratio. I'm mostly a friendly player in my tank, but since most people get the wrong idea, I have to go all spawn kill on them. :( I just wanted to give them a tank. But no, you just had to shoot at me.

You smart enough to kill me in the air? Easy. Bounty for you! And of course, the underused feature of Backup Helicopter.

You dumb enough to be hostile towards me on foot? I'll do EVERYTHING. Mercenaries, muggers, bounty, off radar tank spawn kill.

In other words, be my friend. Please. The consequences ,if you don't, are something that'll make you leave.

What she said.  I enjoy team deathmatches and it is nice to know that I gave better than I got.

Only the bad people care about it :)

Personally I like to be able to skydive into my friends chopper props, or bring knives to gunfights, without feeling all guilty.

"Oh no, this death is going to go straight to my ratio, how will anyone ever love me now? I'm a failure!"

Only matters in DM/TDM for me as well, aslong as I finish anywhere in the 2-2.5 range I'm happy, sometimes I finish higher. Only times I'll finish below a 2 is when I'm playing in a Grenade Launcher, RPG, Sticky Bomb festival, where everyone doesn't know how to use guns. I haven't gone near many deathmatches recently, not with all these nigerian scammer ones I constantly get sent to. I pretty much gave up, hopefully the PS4 versions quick job function will have better filtering options.

I do and don't. As long as it stays above .90 and I'm happy, higher than .90 is just icing on the cake. Any lower and I go on a mass murder spree to raise it.

KDR or K/D is your kill death ratio. Basically it tells you how many kills you have in relation to how many times you have been killed...so if you have 200 kills and 100 deaths, your KDR is 2.0.

You can see your KDR by pausing the game online and looking at your stats

nah - I was spawn-killed too much during levels 1-30 to really care about it. Its GTA anyway, not CoD or BF. I really don't get hung up on stats in GTA:O because there are a lot of variables that can effect them that are out of your control...(trolls of all kinds, games freezing at inopportune times, ect). I mainly play to cause mayhem and make $ to buy things to cause even more mayhem.

I care about it in as much as I care about any of my stats - I like seeing improvements over time - but I don't think it's especially important, or something I spend energy protecting.

If K/D was only affected by Deathmatches and other competitive game modes, perhaps, but because free roam also  counts I couldn't give one f*ck about K/D. Hell my K/D was around 2.4 around launch when I played a lot of DMs and as I played free roam it's gradually dropped from knobjockeys killing me when I drive past to like 1.8. Ironically the guys with 4+K/Ds are always the player killers.

Mine goes up about 0.1 per day tbh (0.2 on a good day) and like the OP I had a <1 score for a while as I was way too busy doing other things in Online..

 

All I will say though, is the heavy sniper really does make a difference to it.. :D

 

one thing I have noticed though, is the red dot does seem to attract attention and means you can be a bit busier.. trouble finds you, rather than the other way around...

 

(oh and my sig picture lies... Cockstar's page always shows my K/D as 1 these days, despite it currently being around 1.43 IIRC)

i dont care about KDR, some players praise me when they see my number, some scream hacker/griefer/godmodder, at the end of the day i dont care about it.

my goal is to rake as many kills as i can, thats it.

Used to care, would strive to raise it in DMs. Don't care much more. 

Played so long now I know my level, and know that if Im going down I'm taking two or three suckers with me.

Any game I played involving guns, it's been 2.0+ but it's been dropping from f*cking around with other people. Only time it matters to me anymore is at the end of DM's

When mine started to go down to 1.02 I started to care a little - not wanting to go under 1.0. I started sniping and it now climbs steadily most days.

It only really matters to those who care about. It has as bout as much weight as you give it.

I like to pay attention to mine because I fight honestly :) I and like to use it as a way of telling me wether on a roll when it goes up, and when I'm getting my ass kicked when it goes down lol.

What I consider "honestly" I don't use tanks or jets to get my kills, and I'm willing to fight wether I'm outnumbered or I'm at an advantage. Of course, DM and TDM players have an more "official" k/d and measure of their combat skills, but I prefer mostly free roam fighting because of the freestyle nature if it.

That being said, I always remind people that at the end of the day, the stats don't mean squat, cause they don't stop you from getting killed. Not to mention you can't determined whether they got the kills from a tank or actually fighting. It's the skills you used to get them that make the difference. A guy with a k/d of 3.79 can get sniped just like a guy with 0.64 lol. It's all the same in that sense.

I can only ever remember a single instance where I came across a player with a k/d of 3 something, and I can tell he earned every bit of it cause he wrecked my ass 1on1 with only the heavy sniper and advanced rifle lol.
