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?
