The way I see it, kills really don't matter. Should be more worried about your W/L ratio instead of your K/D ratio. What ever happened to playing to win?

And yes, the SO is really cheap.

I understand if you take my kill while its really intense. But I hate it when someone takes it while there is no one around or when im right in front of it.

Its about winning not killing, i wish people would stop worrying about k/d and worry more about the win, you could kill 20 & die once but if you loose the game your still a looser.....

Lol, here I think I will come into a thread talking about something other than the sawed off, but no, just another thread complaining about the sawed off being OP.

Gears 1 there was hardly any killstealing because most kills were gibs and most people played Execution, which makes it hard to steal kills.

It's pretty annoying when people blatently steal kills when you can easily get it, but theres nothing you can do about it. Just accept it and carry on. I just let them die if they're bleeding out as a bit of revenge.

A bit of etiquette goes a long way.

And the Sawn Off is not OP. That's why 99% of the people who use them are baddies.

quoted for truth. not your kill unless you kill em. and it not like you dont get any points for it. but you should more be concentrating on your W/L ratio though

I play to pop heads and wallbounce kids like you...not for W/L lol. :D

Yeah, **** pisses me off, they need to figure out a formula where if you get a certain amount of damage on a guy you get the kill when some clown comes and takes it. You have to play it on a match by match basis based on who your team is filled with, its apparent right away whether your playing with savages (pun intended) who will take everything, or respectful players who let you finish off your kill.

I hate it too. In Gears 1 people played with etiquette. I liked that. In Gears 2 and 3 people take kills constantly. They want to improve their own K/D ratios. It still shows up in the score that I'm on top. So that is all that matters on some level, but don't tell me that K/D don't matter at all. It does. Everyone wants to have a great W/L and a great K/D. As it should be. I guess I'll let them have the 10 points and the kill. Like was said. If they start stealing kills, then I'm going to steal all of theirs. I will follow them if I have to and if they are down, they are down I'll let them die before killing the guy who killed them. Karma is a @$#@. I will be relentless.

I don't mind when it's in the middle of a firefight and other guys are near the enemy to revive or he's crawling behind cover or I'm a ways away. Fine, I get that. It's when it's a 1 vs 1 and nobody around and I down my enemy and some newb comes in and takes it with his lancer before I can do a finishing move or melee to finish. That is why I prefer to play with friends. IF they take my kills they will give me one back. Friends of mine still claim to not know when it's their down at times. I don't quite get that. Anyways..... STOP STEALING KILLS!! Get better at the game.

Stop saying worry about W/L too. I've only lost 3 or 4 matches (forget exactly) and 2 of this we're due to joining in win a round lost already and less than 10 respawns. W/L is over 10 already. Im not the best player, I just play with good people. And every time, the people stealing the kills are the random guys are our team who are getting carried and don't even go positive at the end anyways.

Its been a problem in all gears I've played, I've just come to expect it and care less. Its only noticeable with the latest installments because everyone worships their K/D.

Don't want to go into a flame war about it, but the sawed off doesn't need nerfing. It's a weapon that is still statistically used less often then the gnasher and still isn't the workhorse the gnasher is. So until the day that the sawed off actually rivals the gnasher, its fine in my book.

On a side note I do find it annoying sometimes.

I usually don't rant but i'm honestly sick of people whining about every little thing. Especially K/D-W/L... How HOW can you say your having fun when all your worried about the entire match that your K/D might drop cause some "noob" stole your kills..

You wanna play the game, then lets go shoot something... you wanna stare at numbers, go be an accountant...

Also, on this. Alot of people seem to forget that other people might be shooting at the same target as you. And just because your bullet actually downed them, their shots damaged it too. So it's fair game.

I had a player yesterday that was blatantly doing it to all of our team. So much so that once when I had downed the last opposing player and was about to perform an execution, they ran up and blasted them with the DBS. I just had to laugh at his noobism in the end.

I don't care if people take my kills, because I'm going to take theirs when the opportunity presents itself. Besides, it's a team game and the objective is to win. Just for fun though, I would like to see some sort of kill-steal statistic. It would be fun to see which of my friends is the guiltiest of doing this.

09-21-2011, 04:29 PM
If you're playing a gametype where they can self-revive, it isn't your kill until they're dead.

Now if you down someone, then raise your ally and he takes the kill, yeah, that's a dick move.

Way too many times have I seen someone down a guy then get gibbed before finishing him off allowing the downed guy to get a revive.

It looks like that's just how it's gonna be in Gears 3 man. Frankly I've had a ton of kills taken from me and my response is just to take kills from everyone else. And in my opinion, if everybody else is doing it, then let's rock.

Oh yeah, I bet you're one of those kids who's so hell bent on keeping that perfect KDR that he'll ragequit any match where someone gets the drop on him. Been crying about any Sawn Off Shotguns lately too I wonder? :D

On a lighter note, why do all the hard work when I can get whiny little MLG tryhard scrubs like yourself to do it for me?

I really don't mind much if people steal my kills or not since I still get the points for it. I do get annoyed at it sometimes though, like when you down someone write in front of you and a teammate on some random part of the map decides to steal the kill. It's only annoying when it's outright obvious they stole the kill, but even then it's not something that I'll rage about.

Cpl Crosseyes
09-21-2011, 04:57 PM
At worst it's annoying if blatant but never worth raging over. If you truly did all the work for the down and your teammate took the kill you should still get like what... 150 points? While if someone just finishes a down that they contributed nothing to they get like 10 points? The K/D ratio in games isn't worth much compared to the point/death ratio really.

casuals = kill stealers

people steal kills to pad their k/d. simple as peas.

you can't even go "hey, you might not know but it's considered impolite in the Gears games to take someone's downed player as a kill unless there are other opponents round who could pick that downed player up" cos nobody talks on their mics. so ignorance on their part may be a very good excuse but we'll never know in the Gears of Silence. never ever. ever.

the kill steals that always make me "laugh" the most are when you've downed someone and someone standing there will boomshot or SOS kills your downed player. they want the kill and 10 points soooooooooo much they'll waste a shot from a power weapon.

i say "laugh" because really i'm just facially expressing "why?" at that point. open mouth, eyes widened, straightened back, small extension of arms, open palms. then someone runs up to me with a SOS and gibs me...

actually, that's one way to guarantee you get to keep all your kills. use the SOS!

seriously, i was playing with randoms and downed some guy in a 1v1 gnasher battle, then suddently some guy in my team HAS to throw 2 ****ing frags at him just to get the kill.
i just want to curb stomp people, it's the most satisfying way of doing anything.
but i have learned to stay away from team members using s/o and retro, because those are the cod kiddies on the gears train on their way to another pathetic call of duty.

I love all the people saying "You shouldn't care about kdr, etc." Who ever said it was about kdr? 6000 kills with the weapons is going to take a lot longer with dickheads taking your kills. I don't mind if I'm firing at the enemy and so too is a team member, I down him and he keeps firing and gets the kill. When I down an enemy and I'm going to perform an excution, etc. and some penis runs up and takes the kill, then I'm pissed!

kill stealing does not bother me at all

i never steal other player's kills except for two reasons

1. in the middle of a frantic 3 on 3 shotgun battle or something, **** etiquette just make sure your team wins and don't let them stand back up again
2. if at the end of the round one of my team mates starts taking the piss eg smoke tag, i steal their kill every time

one more thing

a lot of the time, people who accuse others of kill stealing are actually worse than those who steal kills

i once hit an enemy with torque, then a team mate downed him with shotgun split second later, then he exploded

it was obvious what happened, yet the idiot still threw a hissy fit and moaned i stole their kill

Gueri11a
09-21-2011, 06:21 PM
I've decided that in this game I'm going to be absolutely merciless with downed enemies and take any I see, because it seems that even if he's the last guy left and I've put every bullet in to down him, every one of my teammates is still going for that kill.

It has been said in this thread before:

You should be worried about winning and your W/L ratio instead of your K/D.

If you are really really hellbent on your kd, then roll in with a team. I'm sure that the stolen kills will be less frequent and when they do happen, they will be completely on accident. Heat of the moment kinda thing.

If you're getting killed by the nub running around smashing B, then I think you need to step your game up. I mean that in the nicest way possible haha. I'm not pro, I'd say im average. So don't come back bashing my stats because thats not the point.

Taking your kill after you down someone is really simple. It comes down to a couple more bullets. Of course its a while away, or you run out of ammo then its a different story.

Just my take on it.

I didn't mean bashing me, I have no problem with the melee in this game and I never have. I mean bashing, or kicking, all of my downs. And sometimes it's just not possible to stop someone taking it.

Talk out of your ass more, it doesn't change the fact that you are a kill stealer because you are bad.

Got evidence to back that up? Of course you haven't. Opinions don't equal fact.

Now who's talking out of their ass? :D

And lol at 600 Sawn Off Shotgun kills. Because it's really hard to cover camp with a Sawn Off Shotgun and pick bots off without the need to aim whatsoever. :D

Everytime you open your mouth you let the world know that little bit more each time that you Sir are a complete idiot. Please, for the sake of everyone elses entertainment, keep talking.

Come back when you're a team player and understand the difference between kill stealing and making sure your team wins the match. Which will probably be when you reach adulthood in about 10 years most likely judging by your immaturity.

Down=Down and Kill=kill. The only time a Down=kill is if anybody your playing with goes by the unwritten honor code. Which is not a whole lot of people

I think your sig from Cliffy B sums it up just about perfectly.


I know. You'd think it's like a teamgame or something.

I understand why you are mad, but the points are all that matters. So as long as it is your down you will still get points.

And the SO can be OP at times, but for the most part it is a balanced weapon.
