As far as I understand, pretty much as you said.

Just any player that expects far greater from their teammates then what is average for the game type they are in eg
y u no ceiling pounce/level/skeet/jumprock in pub??? GETKICKEDFGT!@!@.
Always expecting a competitive config level performance at a minimum.

That and just getting carried away with ♥♥♥♥ talking the other team when winning.
Very votekick happy.

It's someone who is better than you and has a need to constantly express this fact.
An elitist is:
-a good player
-constantly notifies you of this
-is likely to insult everyone else for sucking and not helping the team without saying how.

an elitist is NOT:
-a bad player
-rarely if at all mentions his skill
-At worst will ask you to play better and give tips/suggestions to make you do so.

By good, they may have good personal skill. But that does not make them a good player.

L4D2 skills + teamwork = brilliant player
teamwork = good player
L4D2 skills = skilled player

An elitist, in a gaming sense, refers to a person who believes that games should be played at a high skill level, using all the tools and resources available to improve one's play. This usually involves math, theorycrafting, and extensive testing in game. They expect their teammates to perform at a similar level and they do not enjoy having to carry new players or casuals who do not immerse themselves in the knowledge of a game's mechanics.

There are humble elitists and there are elitist jerks, two different types of people.

Generally, when people use elitists as a insult, they're talking about the nitpicking elitists ones who expect everything to go perfect and complain or make up problems about their teammates for not being exactly like them.

Some elitists are esspecially annoying since they aren't nearly as great as they think they are and abuse the votekick system, even when THEY'RE the worst player on the team who dies the most, gets incapitated the most, rushes ahead the most, and "helps" other players the most by screaming at them but doing nothing to save incapitated players.

when someone says someone is a elitist, all i can think of is they are a gamer version of sheldon from big bang theory XD

Elite can mean someone who is a very skilled veteran at a game, but an elitist is someone who considers themselves superior, looking down on and ridiculing other players.

Yay finally someone gave the correct answer.

Once i was called an elitist, because i complained about guys who always spawned too early, and always attacked randomly in vs. (These players had 1500-2000+ hours in the game)

But according to this definition "Elite can mean someone who is a very skilled veteran at a game, but an elitist is someone who considers themselves superior, looking down on and ridiculing other players." im not an elitist, just a decent player.
