10----|----0---------"-10".

The bar is at 5... if you have 9 deaths... where would be bar be?

I know. Number bars are so elementary school!

Eh, whats the issue?

10 Kills and 5 deaths = 10-5 = 5 which is greater than 0, you got more gold by killing than you gave the other team, = positive score

5 kills and 10 deaths = 5-10 = -5 which is less than 0, you fed them, =negative score


If you want to argue about the term "ratio", well ok, but your % doesnt mean anything, what makes sense is if you made or lost money and experience.

And that would make it positive or negative?

A negative, a positive score would have a higher kill count than death count (More commonly depicted as a ratio (in circumstances such as these)

My argument is that the Op is complaining of the way people call out ratios, which ive explained, doesnt that make my argument valid?

A ratio is the result of a division, if you have 5 kills and 2 deaths, the K/D ratio will be 2.5 (5/2, or 5:2)
If K and D are both positive (or zero), the ratio can be positive, zero, or not exist (5/0 doesn't exist, 1/100 is still positive).

A difference is the result of a subtraction, if you have 5 kills and 2 deaths, the K/D difference will be 3 (5-2)
If K and D are both positive (or zero), the difference can be any integer number.

So having a positive ratio doesn't mean anything (I know, it means you died at least one time, but who cares ?). Dont use the word ratio if you don't know what it is, and please don't say it can also be a subtraction.

(Sorry for my bad English, it's not my native language)
