I've started playing pugs on november 2020.
Entering a certain circlejerk made it possible to actually get picked on pugchamp and have fun.
Elo wasn't here yet (again) and people were trying to have fun. Of course the so called A-Pugs (Prem/D1 Level) were somewhat tryhard-ish, but that's to be expected on such a high skill level.
Where I'm going with this is, entering 2021, pugs have been shit. And I'm not talking about people crying about Elo or some circlejerks gaslighting certain individuals to get them out so their friend could play.
I'm talking about how toxic this community has become as one. It's sad to see people who I've had a lot of fun times with turn into enemies over a FUCKING WEBSITE. It's a game guys, no need for this toxicity.
I'm not gonna drop names, but certain people on this website are straight up toxic. They're toxic if they're losing Elo, theiy're toxic cause you play 2 division below them. They'll find a way to make you feel miserable for trying to have a fun pug with some friends. It's not even funny anymore at this points, it's just stupid and it's kinda sad to see and hear how many people started to dislike pugs since early 2021/end of 2020.
downfrag me all you want but in conclusion:
fuck the admins who allowed their circlejerk members to do what they want and get away with it
fuck the people who destroyed their friendships OVER VIRTUAL NUMBERS ON A SCREEN
how about we just start to see pugs again as what they are: not relevant.
scream at your teammates in your scrims i don't fucking care but stop insulting random people on a daily base.
