Can anyone tell me how the 'Skill' rating is arrived at ? Mine is 312 right now but I have no idea just what I have to do to increase it or what I'm doing or not doing causes it to drop.

follow these steps:
-Stop caring about a useless stat
-Enjoy

Lol. In all honesty, it's about you killing people higher levelled or skilled by you. That's how you get more 'skill'

That seem's pretty stupid and meaningless. Just how am I supposed to know what someone's rating is beforehand ? I see 'em, I kill 'em before they get me. Making it a scaled overall rating based on all your stats (k/d, squad score, win percentage, revives/resupplies, accuracy, headshots, etc. ) would seem to make a lot more sense to me as the stat is called 'Skill' and not 'Clairvoyance' . rolleyes.gif
I think I'll just take your advise and stop caring about a useless stat. thumb.gif

Actually I think BF4 skill is determined by a different calculation than BF3 (it has been discussed here before). It has to do with your KPM and SPM primarily. So playing lots of TDM or high kill count games is favorable to Skill stat. But in reality the stat is pretty useless because if you join a game, then leave, you can lose 40 points in 1 shot, do that a few times and you're down to terrible "skill" rating, even if you just did 100 games of 10 K:D, it will destroy it that simply.

Wasn't that for BF3, I read in some thread somewhere that was abandoned and now it's based on a "perfect" round and how far you are from it rather than gaining more/less skill from each encounter with lower/higher skill opponents. That's why you can join at the end and loose a bucket of skill without even having an encounter with another player - you made no kills in a round which makes it far from perfect.

I'm not so sure. I've racked up monster scores camping with an LMG on a bipod and always keeping an ammo crate out for my team while playing TDM and scored k/d's like 50 / 5 with numerous resupply ribbons from the ammo crates, as well as the MVP ribbon, suppression ribbons, headshot ribbons, kill assist ribbons...the works and seen my skill for the round at -2 !
It just doesn't seem to make any sense at all.

Maybe BF4 doesn't count camping as skillful tongue.gif
