There are many terms that are exclusively used in gaming. GG means good game, AFK means away from keyboard, and so on. Because of this, players new to games like Valorant might become confused when, after a round or match, they see teammates spamming ‘NT’ in chat.
Well, we’re here to tell you that NT means ‘nice try’ and is a way for teammates to cheer other teammates up when they lose a round or match despite trying their best. While the enemy team would usually type GG in chat for ‘good game’, they too would occasionally say NT as a sign of respect.
The jargon that games like Valorant have can be considered their own language at this point, and the only way to learn all the keywords is by either playing for hours on end until you get familiar with them or by hiring a coach to tell you everything you need to know. After all, you don’t want to get the wrong idea, like when a teammate types NT and you take it some other way.
