Getting into PUGs?

Used to play some years back and have been trying to play a few PUG games - but for the last 21 games on PUGChamp I have been the victim of a self-perpetuating fat-kid syndrome on account of my lack of PUGs played. Is there anything I can do to combat this/get involved in other comp mixes or PUGs?

I'll happily play med and have it perma selected. It's not necessarily hazing. I just won't get picked as I haven't got a record of games played

med is the most in-demand pug class so you'll build up those games in no time bud

For real? I'd say in about half of my almost-games so far Medic was the 2nd/3rd most poplated pick. Hopefully this will change.

The fact you only have 100 hours played in tf2 is also a reason people won't pick you, unless this is an alt account you're posting/playing on.

I lost access to my old account about 7 years ago. C'est la vie I suppose.

EDIT: Also who wants to play 4000hrs of pubs. I'm not b4nny or Byte and not a masochist

if you add up and sit around idly waiting to get picked you'll be disappointed. You'll get picked eventually but my advice is to just have your pugchamp open and be added up whilst you dedicate your time to playing MGE, DM, Jump maps etc. Use your time to improve your mechanics and dont worry about getting picked too much.

wait for the holy 12/12 pug only to see someone ask to kill the draft and see the 12 players from the previous pug add up

I didn't get picked for a few weeks when I was adding up, and then I got picked once, presumably when they were desperate. Eventually you'll get picked when there aren't many added up, especially on med.

We won, so I'm never playing again in order to maintain my 100% record.

This seems like one of the biggest issues in the community in my opinion, the lower level pugging scene looks like complete dogshit

- Tf2center is a complete joke. people will do direct hit / charge demo very frequently so a good amount of the pugs you play there will be useless practice for those actually trying to get better at 6s

- Faceit doesn't work anymore and probably never will. Also I know firsthand that the beginner division was a zoo

- You will not get picked on pugchamp unless you add to a 12/12 pug on medic. If you do manage to get on a combat class somehow the 12/12 pugs are still low effort cause nobody wants to try when it's a D pug

- Inhouses exist, many you have to get invited to, if you're a newer player good luck with that. On top of that in my experience they tend to be pretty low effort with the same shit that tf2center has so not good for practicing so I don't like to play them myself

If this isn't accurate correct me but if i mained a combat class when I started playing this game like 2 and a half years ago I probably wouldn't have ever gotten into pugging when I was in open cause the only reason I was getting into pugs on pugchamp was cause I was happy to play medic cause i main it and I was determined to improve quickly to stop ruining pugs with how bad i was. I'd imagine a pugchamp-like website intended for newer players would be sick but we had mixchamp and nobody used it so idk.

TLDR If someone that's new asked me where they could go to play some pugs I would not have a good recommendation for them. That's very bad for a game that needs newer players to keep staying afloat

u can definitely become a pugchamp-level player by spamming lobbies and figuring out how to carry them on every class
