no. i would say it's whatever you want to do. no one said you could not do something like that. in fact, xbox players have party chat meaning that they can talk to each other no matter what. i.e. if they are dead they can communicate still. and plenty of people skype while playing as well to keep talking. i do think it is nonsense that they can't talk to you after you die in SnD. you should b able to still communicate with each other. adds new tactics in the sense that even after dead a player can still help his team. that's just my 2 cents.

gaming equipment should never be seen as cheap or "unfair". i hear people say headsets are unfair. lmao. how ? you can go buy one. anyone can. they aren't even expensive. anything that doesn't actually mod the game i.e. hack, mod controller, etc. shouldn't be seen as cheap. that person may just enjoy the game enough to invest in something for it. again i assume someone will say it is cheap. i just don't see it.

the problem with headsets is that there are perks that cater to them

Where did this term "tryhards" come from? It's the most stupid term I've ever heard probably up there with the word "head glitcher"

When you play any video game the whole point of playing is to have fun and do good. When I play COD I want to do good. I'm not interested in going 1-18 every game. So this made up word "tryhards" does not make any sense. There isn't one person who plays a video game to do bad, not one. No one uses this term in any other form except for video games and more specifically Call of Duty. You never hear people say this guy is a tryhard when you play basketball or baseball or whatever.

Its enough with the word tryhard.

Not true buddy,

There are players (as you know) that in public matches consider the match a competition.  But on the other hand there are players that could care less and just be goofing off. I do both, sometimes I'm a tryhard and others (mostly when I play with friends) we will just goof off- which most of the time is actually more fun (or at least, funny). 

When I goof off I could care less how bad I do (obviously), so I would never call someone a tryhard. And when I'm trying, I could care less if they state the obvious (that I'm a tryhard).

So, if you are playing hard then you are a tryhard, but there is nothing wrong with that, it's just a description.

I agree that very few 'try to do poorly' but doing good and having fun are different things to different people- for example:

Some of the most fun I've had was trying to slide knife for every kill.. We (I) got destroyed numbers wise but the challenge was a blast. I also consider going 8-22 slide knifing doing pretty well. So it really depends on the players perspective.

If I was looking for a serious competition, I wouldn't join a public server for reasons like these.

If players are seriously Skyping or using radios to communicate once they are killed it is a form of cheating. If you die you are out of the game you cannot communicate with a dead person..Also I have to laugh at players doing this just to win a video game. If only you were so much of a try hard at school or getting jobs....

what? How do you know they are walkie talkies? And what difference does that make from using a mic?
