What do YOU define a tryhard as

[ Edited ]
81 replies 788 views Edited Dec 19, 2012

I was just playing the other day against a party of tryhards, and it got me thinking; what exactly makes somebody a tryhard. I usually classify someone as a tryhard if they show a few or all of the following, unless they display good skill, teamwork, etc, while they're playing:

 

- Alt. account

- Not legacied (to abuse the matchmaking)

- Booster 1: Fleet Foot, Explosive Shell Expert

- Booster 2: Bargain, Revenge

- Kickback: Quick Boom

- Long Gun: ROF M9, Flynn's M9

- Usernames (or derivatives of): Xx_NAME_xX, II-NAME-II, iBiZa_NAME, NAMEStyle-

- Power weapon hog

- Fake member clan tags (NDI, NDog, GET+, OmG!, Zeus, etc)

- Intentional or unintensional laggers

- Intentional glitchers

- Skeleton skin (for non-aesthetic reasons, such as trying hard)

 

What does it for you?

Most tryhards use Cloaked and Scoped in now

- Booster 2: Bargain, Revenge
Most likly bargin

- Kickback: Quick Boom

Agreed

- Long Gun: ROF M9, Flynn's M9
ROF M-9 yes, i dont exactly see how Flynn's M-9 makes you a tryhard

- Usernames (or derivatives of): Xx_NAME_xX, II-NAME-II, iBiZa_NAME, NAMEStyle-
Agreed

- Power weapon hog
Agreed

- Fake member clan tags (NDI, NDog, GET+, OmG!, Zeus, etc)
Maybe, most players that use those tags are casuals

- Intentional or unintensional laggers

 I dont see how using a "Specific skin makes you a "Tryhard"

In that case, I'm a tryhard. First two and the lagging part describes me well. Stupid whitepluggers.

Anyway. Normally I just consider anyone with RoF anything a tryhard. I don't care even if it's the Tau. Tryhards love RoF anything.

I'm sure most people use(d) at least one of these. So it doesn't mean that if you use them, you're automatically a tryhard. I'm saying that tryhards are usually the ones who use it.

Why do we call them tryhards anyway? Isn't trying a good thing?

Flynn's M9 because of the Blindfire Accuracy.

 

And a specific skin doesn't make you a tryhard. But all tryhards use specific skins.

Skeletons are usually tryhard. But I've also seen quite a lot of tryhards with Elena.

 

Uncharted 2 is a better example. Nathan Hale, Dillon, Blain, Evil-Cole(good isn't for some reason), skeletons, Chimera and Wetsuite drake. All the try hards used one of these. With Nathan Hale and Dillon on #1. Chimera and Wetsuit Drake were also loved by tryhards.

But here is my list:

 

- Alt. account Agreed, but mains can also be tryhard.

- Not legacied (to abuse the matchmaking) True, but again legacied van also be tryhard

- Booster 1: Fleet Foot, Explosive Shell Expert + Weapon expert (to use the guns power mod along with another)

- Booster 2: Bargain, Revenge True

- Kickback: Quick Boom + Hammer + Cluster/mega bomb without teamsafe

- Long Gun: ROF M9, Flynn's M9 Agreed

- Usernames (or derivatives of): Xx_NAME_xX, II-NAME-II, iBiZa_NAME, NAMEStyle- If I got 1 cent for every The-Legend-10 I met in this game...

- Power weapon hog If he waits for them to spawn yes.

- Fake member clan tags (NDI, NDog, GET+, OmG!, Zeus, etc) Hmm like Blood said its mostly new players that use them. I'd say a very childish clantag.

- Intentional or unintensional laggers

- Intentional glitchers

- Skeleton skin (for non-aesthetic reasons, such as trying hard) Read previous post

 


For me tryhards are people that only care for their stats and NOT for fun what a game is supposed to be for.

They blow up their team if it gives them an advantage and don't give anything about winning or losing as their Kdr is the only thing important. They are mostly childish and rage all the time they die. They feed on noobs and when they meet a player with a very little bit of skill they throw a qb' at him and continue killing noobs. (Thats why I quit FFA forever).

If you want to be good yes. But they tryhard only for their Kdr and not for being good at it or for fun. But if you put revenge on to get some kills for your Kdr. You do get kills but the kill wasn't fun or skilled.
