Perhaps this will teach them not to be so narcissistic.

Honestly, if you are that worried about it then you play the game a ton. With that the time you sucked with be minimal in comparison to the times you are good. Plus, everyone has this happen.

Of course, as mentioned before, simply play on unranked servers if you are that big of a stat whore.

I like this more.

Not that bad, but still quite annoying. They're cutting corners for profit

Not really going to bother me... if the skill tree/unlocks tree is as complex as they seem to be implying, to unlock everything in one soldier is going to take quite a while anyway.

And as for the narcissistic idea that people don't want others to know that at one point, they sucked... well, tough. I'm hardly a master at BC2; got into it (relatively) recently, have been having a blast, even in the early days when I completely and utterly sucked at it. Have slowly been pulling my K/D ratio up, but it's still not exactly great.

Even so, I'd like the option to start again; perhaps delete/replace old soldier?

Nobody cares about anyone's stats. Do you seriously think people don't have better things to do than look at your K ratio while shaking their heads and making notes? Smurfs make me laugh.

People really care about K/D ratio? I thought the point was to have fun and win lol.

TBH, I would rather have some official information on how the system works as opposed to getting bent up about an assumption.

No point debating something that may not exist imo.

You'd be surprised.

When attempting to debate certain aspects of the game with certain people, they will attempt to kill your argument by quoting your K/D ratio.

Well tbh thats the only reason I could ever see why needing a new account to not "soil" your stats would be required, but even that's a lame reason imo.

Then again, there's always unranked servers.

Learn in unranked server.

Play in ranked servers when you get better.

Win the game?


Tbh though, stat protection in a game like Battlefield is the reason for some of the problems in BC2.

People often dont RUSH in RUSH because they care more about their ratio than they do about keeping the pressure on the enemy.

I dont think anything to do with "pro stats" has a place in Battlefield games tbh.

As a medic, I spend most of my time with a medic bag or defibs in my hands as I like to play an actual medic. Obviously my ratio will be lower. I dont get as many kills as other members, but I'm helping in a different way.

As a support gunner, I'm going to be just firing a whole load of rounds for suppression much of the time and not solely to kill. During those prolonged firing periods, I'll probably get taken down at some point. I wont get as many kills from heavy suppressing fire as I would from carefully placed rounds, but I'm still functioning as a vital part of the team and its strategy.

During RUSH modes, I may get killed more than others being the guy that actually makes the biggest effort to set the charges, but that ratio of 1/10 that round means nothing if my efforts actually won us the round.

That's why I think stats in these kinds of games should be for everything else but K/D ratio unless you literally just play the game to shoot at people (in which case, you're doing it wrong).

People who enjoy targets, personal progression etc... can be intrinsic reasons, not just extrinsic.
