I bet everyone here has AT LEAST heard SOMEONE on Modern Warfare 2 call someone else, maybe even you, a "try hard". I hear it all the time while playing online. I can only guess a "try hard" means someone who, well, trys hard to win. I sure as hell don't try at all yet people still call me it. The people I'm watching don't try and they get called it.

So I'm curious to hear your opinions. What exactly do you consider a "try hard"? And do you use the term at all?

well in haro a try hard is usually someone who's on a team and he's carrying them by a lot, and usually in social matchmaking.

so that one person is "trying hard" to carry his team

in cod, well it's when everyone is trying to relax, and one person is winning by a lot. that's the excuse people usually use when they suck rly bad and just wanna make teh winar feel bad

My only guess is if your only goal in the game is to win, not have fun.

A tryhard in my opinion is someone who tries, when theres no reason to, cuz taking the game seriously is boring.

According to Urban Dictionary:
A person who puts a large amount of effort into achieving a certain image, or counter-image, to the point where it is obviously contrived. Rather than achieving an image through genuine personality, the try-hard consciously attempts to fit a certain style through deliberate imitation, forced style, or scripted behavior. That is to say, he/she is trying hard to create an image. Examples: An affluent, suburban dweller who makes great efforts to cover himself in tattoos and piercings; try-hard.

A person who wears certain items of clothing for the express intention of appearing "non-conformist", and flaunts it; try-hard.

Someone who purchases a motorcycle only to appear as a "bad-boy"; try-hard.

A person who shuns certain genres or styles of music or art simply because it does not fit his self-image, or the image he wants to portray; try-hard.
Just say OK to whatever they say. Eventually, or hopefully, they will get over it.

People who try and get nukes every match and complain when someone takes down their harrier ac130/chopper. Or just die when they're on 24-0..

Yep, when someone cares about the game and doesn't just have fun.

I, alike most people on Call of Duty, get bored with the game and make weird classes for either challenges or just to screw around. A "try hard" is someone who tries extra hard to be very good or very bad to piss you off/be funny.

An example of such a class
MP5K w/ Thermal (hipfire)
AT-4 HEAT (use it to kill themselves when they're the last one alive)
Smoke Grenade (throw it randomly across the map)
Blast Shield
-Bling Pro (with only one attachment)
-Lightweight Pro
-Scrambler Pro (so you know where they are)

Another example
UMP w/ Silencer
RPG x2
Stun Grenade x2
Claymore
-Marathon Pro (To flank your spawn)
-Stopping Power Pro (Because they can't kill you without it)
-Commando Pro (Because the suck at aiming up close)

Or your classic One-Man-Army Pro+ Danger Close Pro M203/Claymore class.

I see what all of you mean. Too many times will I be screwing around and someone just tries hard to grab a win.
