Why is tryhard an insult? It's not an insult in any other hobby besides gaming. Yes, this is my hobby. I work, I do chores, and I participate in my hobby. Nobody gets mad at an old grandma coming home from her part time job at Walgreens and actually attempting to stitch some squares together well for a quilt. "Why you such a tryhard, grandma? Don't you have a life outside of quilting? Just slap those squares together, it's not like you're entering a quilting competition."

Now, doesn't that sound ridiculous?

Nobody has a life outside of their hobbies. That's what your life is - work and hobbies. And yet nobody else gets constantly ridiculed for trying to be good at their hobby. "Fucking musician, spending hours playing that solo over and over. It's good enough, brah, why you trying so hard?" Or, "WTF man, you're just painting. Throw some paint up on that canvas and get it over with. You're not a professional, so what does it matter?"

I want to be good at video games. It's my hobby, and like everybody else in the world, I enjoy being good at my hobbies.

Stop acting like an elitist bitch, pretending that you were magically born good at this game and never had to try.

And stop tanking everybody else on your team who might actually appreciate a team member who actually plays like part of a team. Nobody bought the game thinking, "The only time I will ever try is when I'm competing at a high level. The rest of the time, I'm just gonna run around not thinking." No, they bought the game because gaming is their hobby and they enjoy trying hard and succeeding for it. If you don't want to try, then leave. There is no sense poisoning the entire server you are on just because you've become jaded and believe that you shouldn't try to do your hobby well.

Really, there are only two reasons to call anybody a tryhard - you suck at the game and want an excuse ("everybody else is trying too hard!"); or you did good one time and now you're too scared to play anymore for fear of getting owned and having your reputation die.

IMHO, you're taking it way to serious. Who cares what they think? Unless theyre in our server, then there's no point in letting them be cocky in such a negative, condescending way. It has nothing to do with you trying hard. It has to do with you getting a good shot or you being better than them. Just like ANY other bully, they make fun of you because of their insecurities. Shrug it off. If you get upset and start saying negative comments back then that person just brought you down to their level. Also, that's what the "mute" buttons for :p

but guys this is the rant section, its designed for people to rant in. this could also be said about every single rant that has been posted yet. I think its ridiculous to come into a rant and tell a person not to rant.

I will always go to their level. if they want to spout of unintelligent bullshit I will gladly show their level of intelligence to the entire room. I get off on pointing out people's stupidity. If fact part of her rant is actually my rant as well. its so utterly idiotic to call someone a try hard it deserves a rant. If you really stop and think about it, calling someone a try hard is exposing your own insecurities about how bad you really are at the game. The only time its EVER acceptable to say someone is trying too hard is if every single round they make it last until the very last second. That would really just be someone that waits too long. If I walk all over the place and win......fuck you I won lol.

shut up Man9000(Ass is a dirty word-get it? Asses are dirty? No? Fuck it.)

Anubis is such a tryhard. Look, she has more rants than serial now-guess the "serialp0rts rants section turned to "Anubis Rants", with an other people rant section. No reason to go mad trying to get the most threads in a section >.>

On a-somwhat-serious note, people just get tired of getting killed and tryhard has become the sort of "your mom" response for gaming. Nobody really thinks of it when they say it, and when they mean it they're exetreme retards for doing it. If you dont want to "try hard" yourself then, for starters, get out of a pub thats clearly set up for,well, trying (well any servers I usually play in are)and go join some random fun mod where its obvious nobody tries. Then you can get to the top of the scoreboard and feel special.

Then theres the "But I dont want to listen to Mic Spamming Kids"response. Mute them-or join an over 18 server, theres plenty.

"But theres this weird thing with my config, and my mute never works" Google it, and dont bitch until you've at least made a somewhat honest effort fixing it.

"But my search engine is fucking stupid. You see, I picked up this virus watching porn one time and.." Your an idiot.

"Well whatever, besides Im SOOOO much better than them its no fun." But if your not being serious and you want to chill what does it matter.

"They're all fags." How would you know, you mute them as soon as they start talking.

"Just cause they're fags." Your a lost cause.




---------------------------------
Ive had many a conversation like the one above. Sad that Ive memorized it. I need to get out more. You know I weight almost 110 lbs now? Thats three more fucking pounds than at the start of the summer. Im doomed. Ill be fat forever. Soon Ill look like serialport. :'[
