While K/D doesn't tell the whole story, a high k/d usually means the guy is good. There are some people who focus a lot on team help. for instance, I saw (well got killed by) a 4 man squad spawncamping. I got killed like 10 times to kill them all, as I saw how many people were getting raped by them. idk how many times I ran behind a full tank for onsite repair. in smaller games, I ace or at least have the 2nd most amount of points. how many times I destroyed my k/d to blow up a heavily supported tank that was bringing carnage on us.
unfortunately, I suck at BC2, but i have fun and don't need to baserape to try to make myself feel better and make myself believe im a pro... even though I try to focus on my team, many could do WORLDS better than me, but they wouldn't want to jepordize their K/D. Real pros not only focus on the team, but can actually end up with a 2 K/D
K/D is the simplest way to measure playing skill, however, if you really wanna know if someone is good, look at their full stats (like team score and squad score)
