pug champ idea

pug champs often don't start cus there aren't enough medics so

how about we make it so anyone can put money towards a reward pot for the med slots in pug champ so that the two meds that get picked in the pug split the money. It could accept paypal or venmo or something and pug champ could keep a small percent to run their servers.

Here's a mockup:

another good idea is to get players to stop being toxic towards medic players so they are more willing to play medic in the future, especially the ones who don't play often

It could also be ref/key based, too. Stuff like Paypal burns you on small transactions.

this looks like the better option, could have it so its like every 5 pugs you play as med you get a key

venmo doesn't, but venmo is hard to enforce

Who would this attract to play med though? Comp players generally care way less about items. And those that do often have been playing long enough to have a decent inventory so a couple ref is worthless to them.
Maybe you'll have some low-open meds that care start adding up but then you're playing with low-open meds that only play because they can earn a couple ref every week. Only low value trader mains would care about something like that and trader mains are:
1) not very good at tf2
2) generally not enjoyable to be in mumble with

I'd rather play med once every 6 pugs and play whatever I want for the other 5 than play 6 pugs with shitty meds. Requires coordination with other puggers and gentlemen's rules that everyone plays med like once every 2 or 3 days but pugs would be 10x better that way than paying people just to have them care a little

Are there any serious examples of meds you'd enjoy pugging with that are not adding up because they care more about earning items than improving at the game?

If you're worried about paypal burning you on small transactions, a fix to that could be players being allowed to withdraw their earnings only after earning / building up a certain amount of $ over the course of x amount of pugs. I think this is sorta how bits works on twitch but I could be wrong.

there'd be a monopoly on medics where a circle of them refuse to add until the pot gets higher

i have trust in the unregulated free market (open meds) to resolve this.

lootevery time I look at NA pugchamp there are like 15 open medic mains only added on fragging classes that they will never be picked on

ya because if they play medic they're gonna be bashed by high open - invite players (a majority of esea players). it's actually so insane how PISSED these players get at medics for not being at least mid-im capable but they're perfectly fine when they see open level anything else. i could play a pug where a scout can go 13-15 and no one cares (no one should) but in the same exact pug if the medic gets caught out by one uber it's gonna be an ass chewing for the next 30 minutes of a pug. people gotta fucking relax on medics, it's actually mad annoying to be around.

I second this. I used to play medic a decent amount but I'd lose focus for one second and die or anything of the sorts and I got some dude yelling in my ear about how I played that wrong as if I didn't know. Just keep positive vibes and don't turn on your mic unless you have something useful to say.

something u guys may be forgetting is that way more mid open medics end up in im+ pugs than mid open fragging classes because most pugs u just have the 2 meds added.

if say scout players were as rare as medic and mid open scouts kept ending up in im+ pugs than they would probably be berated as well

I think u would end up getting a lot of iron players on medic if that was implemented, but I think it's a great idea personally. also I think a leaderboard on pugchamp would be cool too as long as it would be a monthly leaderboard.
