"Man I sure am feeling for some pugs right now."
"Fat kidded 9/10 times, meme pug, less than desirable encounters with passive aggressive teammates or full on ragers, one good pug where I learned something and had a lot of fun. No captains around but 17/12 in the queue, no medics queued but bless the ones that do and have to endure the meme pugs and bot teammates and enemies. Some cool people."
"Lol why play FaceIT when pugchamps a thing, meme offclasses & shenanigans (sorry, I'm actually guilty for this a few times), wonder where the rest of the community is because I see the same people most of the time. Nice people mostly, new players willing to learn."
"It's ok, sometimes, people are p nice all around."
"Fat kidded, waiting for next pug, Pugs are dead. Mostly everyone is p cool."
I personally enjoy all the pug systems, but every pug system leaves something to be desired. I thought maybe FaceIT could be a bridge between new players and higher level players, but it seems like people either aren't playing, our playerbase is too small, or we lack the power to attract people to competitive unless we get a push from Valve. Not sure how to deal with a situation like this, but I appreciate all the people who run the pug sites and have to endure the lack of acknowledgement, hate and vitriol from some people, you are the ones keeping competitive TF2 alive and have done more than anything Valve has done in TF2's life to push competitive TF2 forward. Although I can't really offer much to the table, I can only hope TF2 will thrive and prosper because the amount of effort you people put into this game.
