Not entirely true, it still has its flaws.
Two players could enter the same game, and both get a KD of 2.
Player A gets 10 kills and 5 deaths.
Player B gets 20 kills and 10 deaths.
Because Player B would’ve had the higher SCORE the game gives you more credit for CSR, while player A could even derank for having a lower score, despite them both doing well on the team with a KD of 2 for that match.
Player A gets a perfection, 15-0
Player B gets 25 kills and 30 deaths.
Player B gets a higher score due to many more kills (As well as the fact that Perfection is no longer a medal so it doesn’t produce score), so even though player B objectively did worse than player A and I would even go so far as to say Player B hurt the team, player B gets good CSR credit while A doesn’t.
Yet another scenario:
Player A is legimately a 30 CSR. That is what he should be, he’s reached his current potential.
Player B SHOULD be a 50 CSR because Player B is amazing, yet because he hasn’t played enough games, he’s currently at a CSR 10. Player B could also be a “Multi Account”, or somebody who plays on multiple accounts, so he’s still actually at 50, but the game recognizes him as a 10.
Player B outscores Player A during the game.
While Player A objectively lost to a better player, the game thinks that Player A lost to an inferior player and thus Player A takes a derank.
So what we have is the game saying “Well, you’re clearly not worth of being a CSR 30 if you lost against a CSR 50”, which makes no sense at all.
Lastly in individual playlists it promotes entirely selfish play.
We could be playing a game where the smart play yields a lower KD and score, yet is better FOR THE TEAM, while a recklessly aggressive play hurts the team yet earns the player themselves a higher score.
If people are trying to rank their CSR up, which play do you think they’ll take? People have become moronic since CSR was introduced, because 343 has incentivized them to put themselves before the team, which additionally hurts the community as a whole. 343 shouldn’t want people running around and being selfish, that isn’t how good communities are ran.
So yes, even as purely a system of scoring, CSR has many significant flaws in it, and that’s coming from a CSR 50 (50 BTB, 41 Snipers), not some bitter player who can’t move past 20.
