I guess that you get a win if you win (especially in free-for-all mode).

But if you join a game, any kind of game, and your team loses, does that count as a loss?

If your team wins, does that count as a win?

I believe that is what happens. –  Mechko Sep 2 '10 at 1:54

I don't understand why first-person-shooter tag has been added. It's not related to the question. It won't help someone looking about first person shooter game. I appreciate that someone has corrected by bad english. Thank you! –  Luc M Sep 2 '10 at 16:35
    
Because the game it's about, Modern Warfare 2, is a first person shooter. –  user2974 Sep 2 '10 at 17:54

@Powerlord: Does that mean that EVERY question tagged with modern-warfare-2, should also be tagged with first-person-shooter? That's redundant. –  Carlo Sep 2 '10 at 18:25

I agree with Carlo, this is an instance where it's specific to Modern Warfare, and not it's FPS attributes. –  Alex Larzelere Sep 2 '10 at 19:27

Yup, if you join a game at the last second (or any time up to then) and the team wins you win, if they lose you lose.

It's happened to me a bunch of times where I'll load in, and go right to the scoreboard with a loss.

I believe that's incorrect. –  Carlo Sep 2 '10 at 18:22
    
Well, then how about providing that proof? I've seen it happen to myself and my friends on several instances. –  Alex Larzelere Sep 2 '10 at 18:27
    
Can't provide the proof. Please try it yourself. Check your win loss ratio and do absolutely nothing in a game that's already started. It won't affect your W/L. –  Carlo Sep 2 '10 at 18:38

When you join the game has nothing to do with whether you get a W or an L. If you manage to go an entire game without dying or getting a single kill you do not get a W or an L added to your record. However, this 0-0 K-D gets you the Accolade AFK (Zero Kills, Zero Deaths).

If you join in the middle of game, and do nothing (no kills, no deaths) you don't get neither a win or a loss. If you kill someone or get killed THEN you'll earn the win or lost.
