    How many of you have ever played a flawless TDM only to be called a tryhard in the postgame lobby?

    I just went 31 - 0 on Jungle with the Spectre. I got my CG and Dogs.

    In the postgame, everyone was all "Tryhard GTFO"

    I really don't know what to think of this. Is it an insult? Or a compliment? I mean, I like to win, and I like to do good. So I'm a tryhard? Is it just a noun? If I'm smart, and someone calls me intelligent, is that the same as calling someone a tryhard?

    What do you guys think? I think it's absolutely stupid to call someone a tryhard, and even more stupid to take it to heart.

    No, only time I have heard it is when a group of people are messing around in S&D, using crossbows and whatnot, then an enemy kills them all...

    I define a tryhard as someone who uses a gun that is shit and everyone knows it, but insists on using it anyways. For example, the UZI in black ops. The only reason they are using that, is to show everyone that they are trying too hard.

    Mute button is there for a reason. Your playing a videogame where you don't have to talk face to face with people so they talk shit because they know you cant do shit!
    Basically! There will always be haters, so fuck'em. Once anyone starts to try and shittalk them I mute them for good

    Tryhards technically try to impress people while playing.

    Perfect example: On Firing Range SnD, it was 1v1 and this guy was defusing the bomb. Our guys decides instead of shooting him with his Assault Rifle, to try to do a 360 Tomahawk off of that tall tower by A. Well he misses and dies and the guy defuses. He wanted to look cool, but failed.

    tryhards are people who use classically easy kit set-ups and try and take every advantage they can to seek a high kdr. the perfect example is the kid who will dropshot an enemy thats facing away from them or the kid who has 2000+ kills with the ak74u and barely over 100 with his next best weapon

    yeah so force of habit doesnt come into play here? making yourself harder to spot for other enemies who see your red dot on minimap, making the guy who might have time to turn round not be able to see you and react?

    no none of that, he must be a child, he has to be, theres no other explanation.


    i hate that term "kid" i have never met 1 decent person online who has used that term.

    yeah, it just happened to me a few hours ago. i'm running solo, as always, and i start getting into that groove, and i start merking like crazy. i go 33 and whatever, and we go the lobby, and four people jump in at the same time. and this dude, who i know i've heard before, starts in saying that i have no life. and there' good, not that they one a game off me, but they, combined, have enough skill to win game after game. which says alot, but when clans do this, it's just boosting, imo. my question is, if your a load mouth thirty something, why do flap your gums at me. his buddy is i h8 ni*****, and it's very typical of this motherfvcker, always running he mouth, and i really wonder, how do you grow old and don't learn respect? anyways, i totallly hear ya, but i've got to say, i've done the same thing. usually when someone camps a spot the entire game, so i'm not perfect. i'm just not getting the whole, i talk s#it every chance i get, only because i run in a mediocre clan. come on, not everyone can be the best. blah, blah fvcking blah (sorry for the rant, but that crap makes me wanna beat the s(-)it out the lowlife. cry because you're not as good as me, that really helps you coping. not that i'me talking directly to you, jsut those types.

    Apart from the actual word itself, what really bothers me is that every time something bad happens for your enemies, they, very often, start making up the most ridiculous things, some of which I've never heard before, just because I was superior (doesn't imply I'm always superior), and I've heard shit like "hardscoping noob", "barret .50 cal noob" (when firing at a range, not spray), "spas-12 noob", "raffica noob".

    It's so FUCKING ridiculous that a player can not accept the fact that they sometimes may not be as good as they think. And the fact that they start flaming about shit they never cared about, just because they're losing, convinces me that the majority of the Call of Duty community, if not are, then atleast act like theyre ten years old.

    So Tryhard try to hard?

    Some times I like to fuck around by cocking a semtex and bunnyhopping to my enemies and try to get a wacky post-death matyrdom kill just for shits and giggles. Or some other hilarious antic that looks absurdly odd in a normal game of TDM.

    There the people who ruin the fuck off guys fun by actually playing the game and the fuck off people get pissed and say their trying to hard when actuality their just playing the game and trying to hard is to long for their small minds to handle and insist on shortening the term to a noun 'tryhard'

    My theory anyways.

    I have often been accused of tryharding. I will give you one example.

    I decided to join some old friends for a few HQ games, I end up on the other team, and I proceed to destroy them (though I don't know if a 3 K/D counts as 'destroying' but I got the most points). Anyway, next game, guess what, I'm on the other team again.
    Then, all they did was try to kill me. I got a bit pissed off (which may have been their goal), and I destroyed them. Again, and again, and again. Suddenly, I'm the "tryhard". After I was angry because the entire enemy team was trying to kill me...while ignoring my teammates and the objective.

    Some people are serious hypocrites.

    I akin someone to "tryharding" when they decide to go "ONLYUSEmeBLADE" in Gun Game while getting 0 points.

    Are these fellas on xbl? I reported that username on MW2 a half dozen times and all his buddies for offensive language. Goes to show you that they don't pay any attention to those reports unless they have to do with cheating, and then only rarely.
    I haven't gotten an earful of this behavior yet on Black Ops. One racist guy that everyone in the lobby muted, but I still haven't gotten the League of Extraordinary Unemployed Gentlemen treatment in this game. That was a two/three time a week occurrence on MW2.

    I use weapons noone else uses from time to time merely because it's fun to break up the status quo. It's boring to use the gun of the month all the time.

    Am I a "tryhard" for just going pistols for a few days? Or just knife/tomahawk?

    Whatever. I suck and I know it. Better to suck and win with a crap weapon than to think it's the weapon of the month carrying my ass.

    Then again, this is the first I've heard of the word "tryhard".

    Depends on the motivation behind you doing it. I do the same, but I'm not out to PWN NUBS while using shitty weapons/perks. I do it both to see if I CAN and for the craic of it.

    Well, then I'm confused. How do you tell a "tryhard" from a guy like me? You're sitting, potentially, thousands of miles away. How can you tell what my motivations are?

    Sounds like a word quipped to make fun of those that kill you.

    Although, those that sit there and make montages of themselves doing 360's after crossbow kills comes across as attention-whorish. Maybe that is what I'd call a "tryhard".

    But, I think it's just a word to replace <INSERT RAGE HERE> when you lose.

    I can't. Then again, I don't use the term.

    That's exactly what it is. I'm simply offering a definition. What, are we being literal here? How many non-homosexuals do you think get called "fag" on a daily basis on CoD?

    I like trying hard, bc it gets me kills and fucking epic footage. I was trying hard to win today and a guy was using the x bow for 2 matches in a row on Summit. So, when he was sneaking behind me I turned around and emptied a clip into his body and ballistic knifed him at his spawn 2 seconds after, in mid air. Hands down the hardest I've tried. So, I put it in my sig.

    I wasn't attacking you. It was just a question I had.

    And what is with this "literal" nonsense? Filth, maybe I'm wrong but your posts generally are higher brow than the ones you're posting today. What gives, man?

    To summarize, I don't agree or disagree with anyone. Tryhard just seems like another word/excuse to wield against those that kill you. Maybe there are those that fit the term/definition the community sets, I dunno. But it doesn't seem like there is _a_ definition, at least yet.

    Want a definition? Look to Urban Dictionary (this is really accurate):

    A person who trys their nuts off. Especially when you think they are only winning only because they are putting too much effort into something.

    Often declared by hypocrites during long winded tantrums while playing video games such as CoD. They call out other people when they are in fact trying too hard and still losing.

    Seems to make sense. I went over definitions of "tryhard" and "try hard" there as well. Lots of different takes.

    Generally though, it seems to more describe the person _using_ the word. In other words, it's generally jerks who use it.

    It'll be my new litmus test.

    Imo, everyone who plays this game to win are tryhards. The ones that bitch about it are the ones who are not as good and have to make up excuses. I mean, who plays this game and doesn't care about winning? 12 year olds trying to get noscope montages is about it. If you don't want to deal with tryhards, go play Pokemon.

    I agree to an extent. But I play and I'm not good. But I don't go around bitching about it either. I play for fun. If that means running around with ballistic knife going 2-20, so be it!

    There was a time I would get mad at video games because I wanted to "be good" at them. Then time passed and I realized that is counter to what video games are made for. If you're not having fun, stop playing the game and find one that is fun!

    Seriously, there are tryhards in Pokemon. All they do is play it so that they can beat a lot of people on Wi-Fi. They even hack their pokemon to do it. It's an MLG game and the community is highly competitive.

    I would say that a safe game would be Viva Piñata.

    The way this guy was saying it to you was he felt that you abused all faucets to get that good k/d (Camping, soundwhoring whatever)... 9/10 times the guys going to be an idiot and you shouldnt listen, the other time maybe you were camping around or using launchers a bit excessively... Just play within certain limits and dont let it bother you
