Why do people use grenades in situations where a grenade isn't necessary?
I notice that grenades are abused in this game, and people constantly spam the heck out of them, but why?

I was just playing Team Fortress Classic as scout, and a pyro sets me on fire with his incendiary cannon. I did not escape with the flag or anything, I did not go into spiral, and he finishes me off with a grenade. I got an engineer that went near me at point blank range while I was feigned as a spy to throw a grenade at me.

Why? Why couldn't that pyro save a grenade and finish me off with his rocket launcher? Why couldn't the engineer that saw me feigned just get on top of me and finish me off with his wrench? Why did they have to be with the use of grenades? There are situations where grenades are necessary, but you have about 10178917017817 people acting like grenades are their only weapon.

lol, 10178917017817 I would say is a bit exaggerated, more like 20 :P . People have been spamming nades in TFC since TFC came into existence, most people die very often so holding onto nades is kind of pointless.

I think because they're new.

Because they think grenades are the only way to have a chance at killing people in this game?

False alarms, perhaps? I usually toss grenades into empty areas because i'm paranoid in TFC and I shoot everything.

Maybe there were other enemies in the area that could take blast damage. Maybe there was something more important to do (like fix a dispenser or SG) and time couldnt' be wasted hacking you to death.

I was the only one. Trust me. The engineer got point blank to me on the sniper deck to emp me instead of wrenching me down and the pyro was in his ramp room defending while no one else was.

You shouldn't expect logical reasoning in how people play. People do thing because they can and not take the game too serious. Only thing that matters is they get the job done not how.
