Love the way "sweaty try-hards" has now slipped into the CoD lexicon (look it up, squeakers) to describe someone who tries to play the game. I think many YouTube commentators have started throwing that one around to explain why they can't pull in those 5324535343-1 death scores anymore.

lol yes it is used by many youtubers to explain why they can't go 150-3 anymore

BUT I use it to describe people who rage quit everytime things aren't going their way.

I always TRY HARD to do well in the game and think everyone should...but I don't think you should leave the game every time you are having a bad game.

Thanks for the comment!!

Some people take this game too seriously and let their YouTube "stardom" go to their head.

Just move along, after dis-liking the video's of course

lol I agree on that 

Good thing that doesn't describe me. I only have 79 subs, I do this for a hobby and started because I enjoy COD and wanted to learn a bit about video editing.

I am not a kid and I don't care about getting big on Youtube or even want to. I have a corporate job for one of the top 15 largest companies in the US.

but a lot of the youtube gameplay channels, who have tons of subs and rely on youtube for their income, are mad i think they can't get amazing score lines anymore.

but part of that is the rage quitting. the issue isnt facing equal competition, its that competition always leaving the game and it not being filled.

Nice video. I agree with everything you said. I don't want to be playing my A game every single game. I want to try and experiment with different setups and fool around with weaker setups. The skill based matchmaking isn't allowing me that.

Like you, I also have a secondary account. I noticed that if you keep the KD lower than 1, you will almost never get paired with people with above 1 KD 99% of the time. The only exception is when a clan uses a low KD player as their party leader. I am running pistols only on that account and I learned a few things I would never learn on my main account. I am enjoying playing with it more than my main account. I don't know if this is just a placebo but I never noticed any lag on my secondary account.

Today, I will try to fool around with snipers and try to quicksope for the first time ever. I know I will suck on it but it's more enjoyable that way than playing with fellow tryhards game after game with little to no room for error. I also noticed that players with lower than 1 KD are more tolerant and more forgiving and generally a lot nicer than the tryhards.

i also notice a lot less lag and hit detection issues on the other account. I don't know if its connection though, or if you just notice it less when you are playing against players less likely to have great gunfight skills. we tend to notice lag and lag comp most when we die from it. and naturally in an easier lobby you'll die less.

but there could also be something to it. the pool of casual players is larger meaning you might be matched up with people closer to you and with better connection. if you have realy good stats they might be matching you further away

jnasty720 in youtube has a 700spm and lives in texas and he is constantly getting put in lobbies with other youtubers, people in California, Canada, etc. is it because it is harder to skill match his stats?  an interesting question for sure.

That's how it felt for me. I once erased all my stats after I prestiged and I re-started with 5 KD and I was getting paired with people with godly stats. That lag was unreal and unbearable around that time. My KD on my main ihas now gone down to 1.5 and I'm still lagging. I was playing with my secondary with lower than 1 KD and it seems like there's no lag. I really don't know what's going on but I do believe that the skill based matchmaking has a negative effect to it. I am getting paired with people as far away as New Foundland on my main account and that's some 1,500 miles away from me.

Try hard. This word you keep using, I do not think it means what you think it means. Why would a try hard quit?   I truly hate these words kids keep making up to make them feel cool.

maybe a bad choice of words. my understanding of the word was people who try so hard for their stats, that they cannot handle bad games. but maybe you're right and I misunderstand.

I try hard to win and play well but I also get my ass kicked sometimes as well

example of tryhard from my definition and what I'm talking about in my vid and OP

the other day I was playing solo bs full party. guy on the other team in full party goes 64-7 in 1st round of dom and finishes something like 86-15.  i didn't do well, think I went 25-22 with only 3 caps or something, not bad but not good either.  kept getting killed by his streaks.

the very next game we started out good. We capped A and B, were holding it down. check the scoreboard and notice 86 kill guy is 4-6. 30 sec later. host migration. check scoreboard. entire enemy team except 2 guys gone including 86 kill guy.

thats my definition of the term. he will stay in every game hes doing well and dash out of every game he is doing poorly.  since this game hasnt refilled lobbies well, that kills skill based matchmaking IMO. fill the lobbie and everything would be fine.

in some of my best games in MW3 against "good players" if you watch it back you notice people were also leaving all the time, but the game was good about filling their spots.

Hey super, i to have a second account, and i played on it for the first time last week, and, i didnt get put into any lobbies that were near what the game thinks was approppiate for my skill level. straight away i was put in with people with 300 plus SPM, 2nd to 4th prestige. think its not as black and white as your thinking.
