actually, having a kd at or above 1 means he does better than the avg player; ergo, hes doing well at the game. being better than the avg player means youre better than most (relatively speaking). this doesnt mean some one is and expert by any means, but you also cant be calling them bad. they can only get better from where there are when they pick up the game for the first time. when people are only excited about KD higher than 2.0 (or whatever stupid standard the cod community usually has set), that is a distinct indication that "skill" isnt exactly high on the list of attributes to do well in the game.
tbh bf vs COD is pretty close to an apples vs oranges argument. one game is heavily based on team play and objective modes, wile the other is based more on who can hold their own more strongly. the objective modes in COD can be run by a single player just because they can get KS's. everyone knows that if you go 45 - 15 in bf youll probably still have less points than the players who played the objective and went 15-45. i see this happen quite a bit tbh. Cod is good for some mindless goofing off and fast paced gameplay. BF is a little more tactical and methodical. TDM in bf is pretty boring tbh. only 2 classes are actually useful (assault and support), with one being slightly viable for a good spotter role (recon). the engineer class doesnt really have a useful spot in TDM. the rockets are used to blow holes in walls as they miss their intended target, AT mines and the repair tool have no vehicles to be used on and its not like the engineer gets a *good* long range gun . problem is people rarely play the classes like they should. the only throw down med packs/ammo if THEY need it. In COD you dont have to rely on people like that and you can support yourself with your choice of loadout. its perfect for just going out and doing what you want. you can roll in and just take a game all on your own, and feel BA while you do it.
i bet you cant tell i play both games
