Sometimes I get slayer games and it feels like it's just me vs one other guy on the opposing team playing a game of who can kill the noobs faster. I'm not even particularly good, I'm mid diamond at my best. It's not really fun for me and there's no way it's fun for the 6 noobs.

Congrats, but, I mean, two of your teammates had equal or better occupation time. It’s not slayer.

How do you hold a hill against enemies? Handshakes?

Sometimes it’s smarter to fight for scrap time in the hill so that you don’t give up time to your enemies, even if that costs you your life. Halo isn’t all k/d

>Sometimes it’s smarter to fight for scrap time in the hill so that you don’t give up time to your enemies, Sometimes it better to punt the ball on 4th and 8th in the 1st quarter than running a passing play. You're giving the ball away to the enemy on purpose, but it's better in the long run of a 60 minute game. You need to look at the larger picture during a game. " Is sacrificing my life for 2 seconds of ball time worth it when my team will be down a player for 10 seconds?" 99% the answer is no. If those 2 seconds win you the hill, then do it. But if those 2 seconds don't win you the hill, you should try and live/survive and apply as much damage as possible to allow your teammates to have easier clean ups as they are coming around to support you on their respawn. If your dead you are irrelevant. If you are alive you are relevant.


AnomieMoz

That’s a good point. I mean, the person with the same amount of occupation time died less. The person who died 3 times more (I wouldn’t call that significant) had 16 seconds more occupation time. It’s one thing to say “look at the larger game” when OP is looking at K/D in an objective game.

I would argue that without OP slaying, the others would have died significantly more, and thus not been able to have nearly as much hill time.

If I wasn't getting at least two or three kills each time we rushed the hill, we would never have even had time on it.


FA_iSkout

With the way KOTH works now, scrap time is worthless.


Chaoughkimyero

This isn't to rag on lesser skilled players, it's to highlight that when I'm the only person positive (by a significant margin) and the opposing team has 3 people doing well, it's *extremely* frustrating.

I know exactly how you feel, kinda makes it unfun to play if you have to carry every game you play

This is exactly why I quit playing multiplayer. I just want to relax to some music and actually be able to win sometimes.

This is only made worse when you have challenges requiring wins. I swear it took me almost ten Team Slayer games to get two wins because this exact scenario kept playing out.
