    I think /kills would represent the top PvPers on each server better if it showed the top ten KDR players instead of just the top player kill totals. Currently, players can get to the leaderboard just by killing naked players and even boosting because their deaths do not have any impact on their ranking.

    Similarly to Kit PvP and OPPvP, by displaying a leaderboard that shows the top KDR players, boosting and naked killing will be severely less effective and deaths will become a crucial statistic. This is also extremely easy to implement, as it would only demand a few minutes of a Developer's time to change the statistic that is displayed from total kills to KDR. I can't really see how anyone can argue that KDR is not a better representation of PvP skill than total kills, but if you disagree, please enlighten me as to why this would not show the top ten PvPers more accurately.

    Agreed, KDA should matter more than most kills.
    Still, though, naked killing could significantly boost your KDA even if you have tonnes of deaths (if you kill enough of them.)
    There should be a way to stop the naked killing, but that's for another day.

    boosting would still improve your kdr xd
    i guess it would still help balance out the leaderboard a bit more

    Not really. Players who boost tend to do so because they cannot gain the kills legitimately, which goes hand in hand with having a ton of deaths. Players with 0, 1, or 2 deaths would be on the leaderboards; it would take a ridiculous amount of boosting to compete with these KDRs compared to how much it takes now to reach the leaderboard.

    I feel if this was implemented on to the factions all of the kills and deaths would need to be reset, for this to work. I wouldn't mind seeing this implemented into the factions server as I'm a god.

    Or just wait for the next map haha

    Seems like a good idea, and it makes sense. I could have thousands of kills but then ten times the amount of deaths, so my kills wouldn't accurately represent my skill. +1

    fair point, but if someone starts boosting from the very beginning just for the stat...

    Maybe both of them? I wonder if this could encourage PvP more but I highly doubt that'd be the case. I think it'll make people want to fight more to become "the best" PvPer on the server. Therefore, I am for this idea.

    +1 The leaderboard is currently quite useless.

    Excuse me if my idea makes no sense, but why not have both? We can have a section for both high KDR players and players with top amount of kills. Both are amazing accomplishments

    I agree, seeing both of them would make it fair for people who have lots of kills, but also show the best kdr people.

    I have to say this is a very good suggestion. Although having the top number of kills is impressive, the KDR is a little more of an accomplishment.

    If you have many kills, it does not take your number of deaths into account. You could have acquired kills from participating in PvP for a long period of time.

    This is just my opinion, but I feel like the KDR is a little more accurate in showcasing a player's PvP skill.

    +1, works well on Kit. I don't see why it shouldn't be implemented.
