|KDR||(competitive shooters; short for kill-to-death ratio) A player’s ratio of kills to deaths, in a specific match or overall.|
>> My KDR improved when I stopped walking into obvious traps.
|kite||(MMOs) To pull a mob so that it continues chasing the player but has little or no chance to do damage. The mob’s HP is then gradually whittled down using DoTs or ranged attacks.|
※ Historical Note
Kiting as a strategy is closely associated with EverQuest, where bards had a combination of abilities that allowed them to consistently outrun mobs while doing area-of-effect damage. Modern MMOs have made kiting strategies less convenient, and in some cases impossible, by putting mobs on a leash.
