I beg to differ. Tactics and strategy matter, I know from experience. Run around as lone wolf, odds are pretty good you'll run into more losing fights than winning. Then run with a good organized outfit that has 50+ people during operations, only play during operations, suddenly you run into a lot more winning situations (and higher KD). Difference between the 2? One has more organization and strategy (and friendly population in every grid you fight) than the other. Remember we're talking about big picture averages, your personal experience may differ, for all I know you always play with your outfit and don't remember what it was like on your own or joining pick up squads. Or you're just that good that you still kill more as lone wolf (adapted to that playstyle over the years) and know no other way. Or you suck in every situation (nothing personal to you, I didn't look up your KD, just going through all possibilities). Odds are pretty good if you're a good lone wolf you'll adapt quickly and see improvements if you play in a good team. You can't argue with that, especially for average player, which is majority. There may be outliers that don't conform to that rule, but they're extreme minority. You also may play on different server, I was talking about Emerald from experience (BR 100TR 95NC), I don't have explanation for other servers.
