Exclamation Skill Level...

Okay, so what determines your skill level?

I've had myself going from 197 one day to 171 the next day, like wtf?! I always go positive on K/D (2.00-3.00 avg.) and 8/10 times I win, and I'm always on the top three, both teams combined...

Is it not accurate, or does it just give you a random number?

(I'm pretty sure it's an EA server glitch, but sometimes there's a message saying I'm "0"...while it says 192 on the leaderboards...)

Yeah mate, i'm sure its busted.

My mate played a few games the other night, and absolutely dominated, like i'm talking 40kills and 3 deaths in one match. Anyways, we logged in today, his skill had DROPPED and mine had gone up, but thing is, i hadn't played for about a week, so mine should have gone down.

So yeah, i recon its totally bugged out.

It's not a glitch. The number drop/ or climb happens to me quite a bit, too.

In your games, do you happen to do well in the beginning, but start to suck serious ass near the end? I think the skill level rates your current status, so even if you win, because you sucked at the end, your level will drop anyhow.

Probably completely wrong about this, but that's my two cents.

EDIT: I also remember in the first Bad Company that the skill level would drop after so many days of no playtime. It probably does the same in the second if you don't play for a good while.

lol then how would you explain me going up from 160ish to 180 while not playing for a week? (not saying your wrong, just trying to figure out how it works)

The thing that annoys me about it is the fact that you're penalized for quitting mid game, even though that's the only way to get out of a game. Does EA want us to play until the server crashes? sheese

Its says it penalises you, but have you actually checked if it does? Everytime it tells me my skill level has been reset to zero, i check, and its still sitting where i left it... its really weird.

In BC1 your skill level changed relative to the players you had been killing. So say you were (changing the ranks so that they are how they are in this game) rank 150 and had 2 average games but one was full of players who are rank 199/200 and the other had players rank 100. The rank 199/200 game would rank you up but the rank 100 game would rank you down. Even if you went 20-1 in the 100 game and 9-10 in the 200 game. because of the quality of the players that you were playing.

Mines allways going up and down and it doesnt even make sense, yesterday I played a few matches with my mate and at the end it said my skill level has gone up from like 20 something to 180 - BS.

My game doesnt pop anything up showing what my skill level is when it changes but mine stays around 180ish and i do really good almost every game. Is it higher the level beteer or lower the better like in BFBC1?

Its totally messed up. I don't think it means anything at the end of the day. I doubt even DICE now how it is calculated. Mine usually stays between 190 -198, but today when i turned on (before i had even played a match) it went to 0.

This the most sound explanation to date, also why stats dont matter. If you play against a crappy team you're going to do better than when you play against a team that is good and communicates. I like the challenge of playing against a squad or two that is actually trying to attack or defend and not just get kills to boost their worthless K/D ratio. Now that's fun gaming even when I lose, I like that type of challenge.

Yeah it doesn't work. Mine dropped from 190 to 0 the other day, at the same point that the game decided to wipe all of my single player saves.

Ah not just me that had the single player deleted... The skill level seems to be random since my friend constantly snipes and has a really low score per minute and k/d but is always at 195-200

This is not true

The only way to get the M1 is to be a veteran level 2 or higher.

Thanks for the replies guys, but didn't seem to get a clear answer...since most replies are wild guesses & stories! Lolz, anyway, I don't care about this "skill level" either, but it bugs me when I have to see a pop-up message saying I got demoted...

I don't know what affects it. I had 186 one day, then after the day a bunch of us on here boosted Demo 2.0 kills, my skill dropped to 75. I then played normally for 3 days and it did not move up or down. On the fourth day it went up to 92. Then I logged on the fifth day and a message popped up saying I dropped from 92 back to 75, but it was still 92.
