theres a pug group that runs 4v4 pass time pugs every saturday, 10:30 est
we consistently get enough for 1 pug but recently we've had some more surplus players recently and we'll start running 2 pugs at a time if we can get enough.
its class-restricted to Soldier, Demo, Medic. only original/stock/black box, gunboats, most melees allowed. all demo primaries allowed, no sticks or tideturner, no eyelander. only crossbow, only medigun, melees allowed.
we do not play on valve maps, we have a custom map pool (our main map is pass_arena_b4)
discord (pugs are run here, and you can also find map dl links and server connect infos, and also ask more about p4ss time and even see some cool clips)
•why the bans? shooting the ball makes it neutral and knocks it, and hitting the ball is super easy with hitscan, to the point it breaks the game and makes it unfun. pyro/spy are unfun and can slow the game down unnecessarily, there are other ways to defend that aren't unfun. every ban is justified and is either in the interest of making the game playeable or making it fun (e.g. shotgun would break the game so its banned, and banners encourage a slow and spammy playstyle so they are also banned). this first clip is why tide turner is banned.
•is it any fun? Yeah. fun games, fun teams, nutty tricks.
if you like rocket jumping, if you like trimping, if you like hitting some awesome airshots, and if you like sniping people as medic, you'll have a lot of fun playing these pugs. also invite anybody you know to come pass it!
and here's some more cool videos of pass time players doing cool stuff
