Hello Gamers, today I come to you with a question.

My friend Turbomonkey (Not to be confused with TurboTabs) was looking to play in a Low team with one of his old team mates from years ago. Now, he wanted to do it on medic. But since he had played with Chimpanz Instinct in div1/prem qualifiers in season 33, the admins told him that he would not be allowed to play in Low, even on medic.

My thinking here is that if Fresh Meat allows higher level players to play on Medic with absolute beginners at the game, why would my friend Turbomonkey not be allowed to play medic in Low. There seems to be some kind of logic disconnect there, seeing as the admins can admit that having a good medic even on a bad team is not going to have much of an impact, yet they wont allow him.

My question to you TF.TV: Is this fair? Should my good friend Turbomonkey be allowed to play in Low? Or should he not, and if so, why?

If you want to play games with friends and don't care about the results maybe you should mix instead of trying to stomp newer players in officials they probably care about way more than you

The purpose of allowing one experienced player on medic in the fresh meat tournaments is so that experienced player can act as a coach and teach the newbies. It makes perfect sense not to allow an experienced players in low divs, on any class.

Low div skill changes all the time so I think if there is a team that is good enough to deal with that then it would be ok, but otherwise no. They do have a call advantage

From having looked at the guys history, it does seem a little far fetched that someone that last played a season of ETF2L in early 2017 in season 26 to not be allowed to play in low 3 years later, especially because he only played 1 game in a qualifier since then, but then again we are talking about a former prem player trying to play in the second lowest division the game has to offer, so what gives?

even if he only played 1 qualifier game (although according to OP he also played s33 in d1, the data for which has now been lost), the fact that he made it onto a prem qualifier team shows that he is still prem qualifier level. he would obviously far outperform low medics and bring calls to his team that other low teams wouldn't have, would not be fair.
gemm makes a good point, just mix if u wanna play with your way higher skilled friends
