If you do that is...

I don't get it, free roam suicdes happen constantly, exploring with friends random things happen, people randomly kill you for no reason.  It isn't like some competition when you are just walking around, yet people flaunt their stats on this board like it is something to be proud of.  My k/d is decent but I don't even care, it is from encountering randoms, not a competition environment.  Sometimes people just get in the way. Then the accuracy stats, why would that even matter?  I spray so many bullets at cars, planes, objects etc, my accuracy is probably poo.  It is a free roam game though, randomness happening everywhere.  Why do you guys care to record your stats from this type of lobby and flaunt it like you are achieving something?

In a game where auto aim does everything for you, people think they're good at killing in free mode

I don't care at all. My k/d is pretty good but that's mainly from flattening asshole teammates. Stats mean nothing in this game.

But you cant tell who is a noob and who is not until you play with them.

Who spends anytime checking other players stats anyways?

 

Seriously, players are actually looking up other players stats and then what? deciding if they should engage them or not?

 

I shoot anyone who comes near me, because 99% will kill you, I hunt guys with bounties, I kill anyone in passive mode, anyone on a rooftop sniping and anyone in a tank regardless of what their stats say. 

 

I really believe this is another Forum myth, most players don't spend time looking up info on every player in their lobby! No one cares!

I think you missed the point, no one is looking up other people's stats, people post their own stats in their signatures to show them off.

It's just a way of getting some measure of how good we are in the game , we use stats in just about every thing we do in everyday life , I.e....sports leagues , business performance , we use them to make decisions ,,if Your betting in a horse race you will form your bet from stats for each horse and so on , why is it such a shock that people use them in GTA ,
But saying that they are a bit unreliable for me , my 2 characters seem to share stats , why can't character 1 have diff stats to character 2 ?

Which is why I said its a Forum myth,  What people care about here is usually not important to 90% of players online.

 

We've got people in GTAF who don't think any car is rare when 70 - 90% of online players don't even now there is such a thing as a Mariachi Tornado!

 

I bet less than half have a social club account

 

This is just one of a hundred threads here that deal with stats.... "Do you kick high levels"?,   Are you afraid of a 10:1 k/d?"  blah, blah, no one cares or ever bothers to look, which is probably why they come here and post them in their signature  :blink:

Yeah stats don't really mean jack in this game. Besides K/D, I want everyone to know that my stealth is maxed all the way. Yeah I can sneak up on players without them noticing me right?...oh wait.

The stats I care about I put in my Sig banner. Its because they are the stats EYE care about and I see them here more often than I care to look them up in game or on the Social Club.

Someone tell me how this thread devolved so quickly into another K/D ratio thread.

Stats should only matter to yourself. For example I care about my race win/loss stat and one of my goals is to have more wins than losses. I wouldn't judge another player on theirs though because stats in this game can be so manufactured. If you wanted to win for the sake of it you could just choose a 'custom on' race with a class of cars not many people have eg compacts. You could also just wait for one low level to join and start etc...

Similarly with k/d. Tanks, invincibility glitch etc means you never know whether someone has earned any of their stats. The fun for me is legitimately improving the stats I care about.

I don't know.  A lot of times I'll say something on the forum about being bored or something about k/d and I'll get responses back like "dude, you got 15 days played..." or "you've play X amount of deathmatches."   I'm always like "'da f*ck?".  "How'd this dude know that?"  "I don't even know it."  So some people do research others peoples stats...even if it's pointless and creepy.
