I am not about to call anyone out or name names but I was looking at some players game history the other night and was astounded by the lenghts some players will go to, to boost their KD spread in this game.
We came up against a guy in BTB who had an overall KD of about 8:1 across the game. Anytime I see high KD ratios like that I become suspect. His highest commendations were Close Quarters,Sprees and Multikills which in my experience usually means they have spent some time in Grifball, boosting their KD. So I went to Waypoint for a closer look.
The first grifball game i came across had a massive +698 KD spread and I found plenty more with KD spreads around the +400s to +500s. Then I found a rocket hog race game with a +212 KD spread. I thought that’s odd but when I looked and the game details I was left speechless.
Here we had 3 guys, on their main accounts, on one team and on one console and then on another 3 consoles were boosting accounts with 2 guest accounts signed into each console. So that 4 consoles, 4 TVs and 12 controllers just to boost one guys KD. The boosting accounts just get killed by the main accounts over and over and as they the main accounts are getting kills and on another console they will never be caught or credit banned for AFKing. The booster accounts obviously get credit bans for AFking but that doesnt stop them from doing what they are doing. How do i know they are boosting accounts. Well it was kind of a giveaway when they have the name XXXXXXX Booster Acct and HLG XXXXXX Bot Account.(not the accounts real names)
I pity these poor souls that they think that their boosted Kds mean something and would hate to play in their circle of friends that seem to think having a big KD in Reach is some type of badge of honour.
As i said i wont name names but some of these players are on the halo tracker leaderboards top 100 and top 10 and are well known players in the community. So sad really.
