StylaxDisregarding the above, why is it a thing that people can kill the draft so that their friends can play?pugs were made for high level of play and most of the time people kill either to not have a shitty roll pug or to have a few better players add increasing the quality of the pug, there's new rules about killing without a reason too
A few nights ago we had a draft going, someone killed so their friend could play and then half the people didn't bother re-adding cause it was taking so long. I know it's a circle jerk but it also slows the process and makes it harder for shitters like me to get into pugchamp. You kinda end with the same people playing every pug rather than new people.
Surely that's the whole point of the deadline timer really; to get pugs starting asap so you can have more pugs overall.
I'm sure the skill level is truly astronomical, but the fact remains that you'd get more pugs going if the draft wasn't killed so often and people would spend less time waiting. You could argue that redrafting so a good player is in the draft means that the next draft is worse too so it's a net of 0.
And actually I think pugchamp was made so that people can play pugs, so it fits in with that.
Not a witchhunt against the admins, but I think it's one of the issues that stops Pugchamp getting new blood too and probably should be addressed every bit as much as, for example, offclassing rules.
