Monthly KDR reset to 0,00

    I think KDR for every player should be reset to 0.00 in the beginning of every month.

    So many clans don't want me because of my bad KDR and not only that but i've been called a noob and BOT for it so many times.

    The current KDR system does not represent the true skill of a player because even you if you improve your skills a lot, you hardly can change your KDR. For example i have 200 000 kills and 150 000 deats, to increase my kdr to 2.00 i will need 100 000 more kills if we don't even count the new deaths. It will take me years to increase my KDR only to 2.00.

    It's not fair and the best solution is to have monthly KDR reset to 0 for everyone. This way we can see the true skill of player at the current time. We can even make a competition like the best player of the month or something like that.

    The issue is if you  die a lot in the beginning, which is most likely going to happen. So if you started out each month with a new Kdr. You would probably have a bad one, because it is super easy to get a bad Kdr and balancing the number of kills by the number of deaths you aquire. So honestly (this may apply to a majority of players) based upon your stats (as of now) and you play style, you would end up with a worse Kdr than you have now.

    This wouldn't work mathmatically. Your KDR is the ratio of kills and deaths that you have. Meaning Kills divided by Deaths creating a fraction (in this case a decimal) that is your KDR. So having it reset to 0.00 every month would also mean that your kills and deaths would also have to be reset. For instance if your KDR was completely reset but your kills and deaths weren't the KDR wouldn't really make sense. If you play enough your KDR will start to go up. Mine started off at 1.69 and is now 1.88 from just playing sky and random servers.

    Yes kills and deaths should be reset montly. Who cares about kills and deaths and this way the ranking will be more fun. Otherwise Airwolf will be forever in 1st place just because he is willing to grind more than anybody else.

    I get the sentiment but this will never happen. Ranking system is based solely on XP gained from kills so if you reset them you'll probably mess up the ranks as well. Veterans of the game wouldn't appreciate this. It just doesn't make sense.

     

    The kills and deaths are also representative of a player's investment in the game - how long they've played it. The problem is, Warmerise made KDR an issue since the community itself arbitrarily decided it would be the most important factor on whether a player is sufficiently skilled enough to be admitted into a clan. KDR as a statistic has always been around in most shooting games. It's not new.

     

    So what then?

    Instead, the more logical approach would be to measure a player's performance periodically by having a line graph on their profile page. As in, overall kills, deaths, and KDR will be kept but there's another graph which displays a monthly metric. For simplicity's sake, the metric in question could be a separate KDR (as OP has proposed) that gets reset every month. This graph will better illustrate a player's growth over time (provided that they play consistently enough). In the end, it's somewhat similar to the RWS metric used by ESEA - a third party matchmaking service for CSGO, though RWS is much more complex.
