Flattening of the KDR curve from MW3 to BO2

10% to 90% in skill level in MW3 had a KDR spread of 0.4 to 3.0  but in BO2 the spread of the same skill levels is 0.6 to 2.0 basically a flattening of the curve.  This picture illustrates it:

People at the low end in skill do better on average, and people at the high end in skill don't do quite as well.
I think this is because streaks are quite a bit more lethal, and I think Treyarch justified making streaks more powerful because they lowered the reward that streaks give.
In previous games getting one kill with a predator missile gets you one kill closer to your next streak. In BO2 though getting 3 kills with a hellstorm only gets you half a kill closer to your next streak.
