I may be in the (nerdy) minority, but this **** drives me absolutely nuts! When you have a Kill to Death ratio of, say, 9/5, it is NOT POSITIVE. It is a ratio greater than one. If your Kill to Death ratio is 1/7, it is NOT NEGATIVE. It is a ratio less than one.

/end rant

EDIT: Wow... you can't say c r a p?

You're joking right? I mean technically yeah, you're right.

But I mean, the term "Positive KD" has been in existance since like.. Quake.

If I have a k/d ratio of 9/5 thats 9-5 = 4 or POSITIVE
If I have a k/d ratio of 5/9 thats 5-9 = -4 or NEGATIVE

Since when is division the same as subtraction?

And yes, being a math instructor it does get on my nerves.
