A 'tourneyfag' (noun) is a slang term for someone who takes whichever game they are playing so seriously that one or both of these things applies to them:
1. They play the game purely to 'measure skill' than for entertainment.
2. They remove elements that 'unbalance' the game because they care about winning so much.
'Tourneyfags' are generally seen as a disgrace and an embarrassment to the game industry. They feel a need to enlarge their egos by winning. One example of a game with a notable number of 'tourneyfags' surrounding it is Super Smash Bros. Melee.
1. "He refuses to play 4-player matches because he doesn't think they're a good way to measure skill! He is such a tourneyfag."
2. "Only tourneyfags take this game seriously."
