Warzone K/D calculation change?

My K/D in Warzone dropped overnight from ~1.1 to ~0.7, and I didn’t play at all last night. Some friends are reporting similar giant drops.

Did 343 change the way that is computed on Waypoint?

I thought I noticed a drop on my Waypoint overall multiplayer K/D. I guess they removed NPC kills from the calculation?

I def noticed the drop in KD

Yeah something had to change.

i dont think i have killed 700 NPCs, i wonder if they are taking total kills out of the overall k/d from warzone

See the weird thing is, I was second on my friends list with Spartan Kills yesterday with over 8000 and when this glitch happened I dropped to third with like 6000 kills, it’s really weird. My actual Warzone K/D in the game reads a 2.2 but here it’s a 1.515.

I also noticed that my playtime in Warzone changed drastically too, I had over four days yesterday in Warzone now I only have three. It’s almost like the games we played have been deleted out of our stats.

I posted this in another forum and I got a response!

Sorry, I can’t link

yep, mine dropped too… About 2k kills ! Could it be minus AI kills?

I dropped from a 1.4 to a 1.2…Haven’t played either ;(

I’m thinking that if there was an intentional K/D adjustment in Warzone 343 would’ve announced it.

My -Yoink!- length is tied to my kdr, pls fix asap!

Thank you for the reports!

The stats team recently made a change to how K/D is calculated in Warzone to more accurately reflect your performance. If you played Warzone, this change would also affect your overall K/D.

In a Warzone match, the system previously operated as: Total Kills = Spartan Kills + AI Kills + Vehicle Kills. For this change, we removed AI Kills & Vehicle Kills from the K/D formula, so now Total Kills only includes Spartan Kills. This means that your K/D is now a true K/D ratio, which displays Spartan Kills / Total Deaths.

People really care about K/D in Warzone?..But, Spartan kills are worth so little… Guess I have been playing the game wrong. I must figure out how to raise my K/D! Apparently that is how performance is measured…

Nah, just kidding! I will take the wins!

Might as well remove the ai deaths then as they are the most infuriating deaths ever. The op melee of the soldiers and elites really starts to really get one ones nerves. Not to mention captain wamik and the damn wraiths.
