Our pug group had started out small, it was originally created to allow a place where everyone can play pugs without being ousted by a small circle jerk and while not a complete success in that regards I believe we have made progress. Still, it is easy to notice that the average skill level of our pugs has slowly been creeping upwards alienated lower division players, even myself struggles to get picked but we know that compromising the rules to force lower players into pugs would be destructive to the overall quality of pugs but we did not have a means to solve this problem until recently.

We have been contacted by FaceIt and they have shown interest in hosting pugs on their platform. Now, This isn't a sponsored huge organization endorsement. It is very much just a grassroots and FaceIt is not affiliated with us further than just allowing it to exist on their platform, but we do have the tools and means to change and adapt to peoples demands and wants of the community.

Here is what is available so far:
Queue based matchmaking
6v6 Captain Based Team Selection for all Divs.
Discord Integration
Automatic creation of discord teams and automatic movement towards your proper channel
Verified players (players banned/racial slurs and mirrored bans from our PugHub/RGL{excluded failure to submit demo bans} server are out)
Rgl Season Mirrored Map selection that alternates every 30 minutes.

Things to come:
With enough volume we can turn on Elo based matchmaking
.Adding the Refreshed version of maps to our map pool.
Metamod In game fixes e.g. arrow fix/rampbug fix.

there are still certain things we are workong on such as the fixes in the "things to come section" but other than that its working and were just ironing things out.

The discord integration works, but there are things we just cant test until we get multiple pugs going so its hard to say when its officially done but well keep improving if there is interest.

Difference between ours is there is a pool of 12 and players are picked by captains. It is not randomly auto generated teams.

This isnt FaceIt running it is strictly PugHub existing on their platform, they are just allowing us to use their service. We are in charge of its rules/sets and longevity. Weve been a pug group alive and well for a while now. Even if all goes wrong we can easily go back to focusing on the discord pugs. This is merely a solution for the players who are not adv+ waiting over an hour to get into a pug.
