So I see this often. People referring to anyone better than them as a "sweat/tryhard," instead of just referring to them as a good player. Do you think that good players and tryhards are the same type of person? Because I don't. The way I see it, good players are people that have good game sense and know good strategies. They are good enough to know how to do well with putting in minimal effort. I feel like they use fair tactics instead of relying on "cheap shots" for easy wins and that they are conscious of what is considered "fair" or not. I think that good players don't care about farming wins and XP, they just care about the experience of the game and they do it for fun and for practice and they are always striving to get better. I also think that most good players try to play fairly instead of taking advantage of something broken and I also think that most good players are also good sports and willing to help a fellow player out. And they don't get upset at losing, because that's just the course of the game. However, tryhards just seem to be trying too hard. I feel like they are the people who probably spend an unhealthy amount of time on the game. And they act like they only care about winning, but they don't really think of a good strategy. For example, in a PVP game they would probably be the person to just rush in with jitterclicking 25cps instead of better strategies, such as strafing or w-tapping. (But tbh, 25cps is rlly good so some respect) But then I lose that respect when they try to take cheap shots or deliberately break rules, such as teaming in solo games or even closet hacking. Tryhards don't try to get better at the game because they think they are already the best and they have toxic attitudes, especially when they lose. So yeah that is what I think is the difference between a tryhard and a good player. So next time you are about to call someone a tryhard, stop to think that they might not actually be a -snip- and maybe like, a good player?
