This is getting needlessly complex. A ratio is just a method of understanding the relationship between kills and deaths. As the ratio is basically the same as the fraction K/D you can end up with a fraction of a death using this method. Obviously a fraction of a death is not something that can be seen in real life but then that's the beauty of maths, can you show me what a -1 death looks like? No.


Since we are arguing correct definitions, while a ratio can be used to relate kills and deaths, it is not "just a method for [relating] kills and deaths", it is a method for relating 2 numbers.

About killing half a person, I remember a fighting game for N64, it was about mutants fighting, and in it you could actually "kill" half of them, i.e. knock off their arms, or legs, and could eventually reduce them to a torso with a head. I never played it, but I remember reading about it in Nintendo Power.

You are a math natzi. Everyone ,in general, understands what people are talking about. The language is doing its job.

I intended to type numbers and include death/kills as an example of some numbers, I guess my fingers got a little ahead of me. I apologise unreservedly.

Biofreaks was filled with win.

Let's prove OP's statement by induction.

Thinking about it...

No.

It's a game. I already spend enough time on mathematics in university, I'm not gonna be a math nazi here.
