#10 A Request for Open Discussion in TF2 General Discussion
dbkYou make some other good points about availability and pug quality, but this is not a prevalent issue for TF2Center in my recent experience.

I am glad if that's the case, I don't mean to imply it's like that now.

I really mean more that anywhere without strong gatekeeping has a real risk of being infiltrated and ruined by those folks. I've seen it happen in other sites and groups many times and so I am wary of any open access pug service, I imagine I am not alone in that, is all.

#4 A Request for Open Discussion in TF2 General Discussion

As an older, mediocre player with life responsibilities, the current situation is awful. The limited time I can set aside to play the game, waiting around 30-45 minutes for a pug that may or may not start is terrible. I would love if we can get back to having a service that I can reliably know a pug will start at any time. I don't think I've played a pug in at least two years, and it saddens me.

The current state of in-house pugs is terrible because it's fragmented such that pugs can only happen at time when a critical mass of that subgroup are on, all other times there's never a critical mass anywhere, even if there might be 20-30 folks open to play among all of them - there's no way for them to know.
Even TF2CC, which is probably the most workable for newbies -IM/Main level pugs are still running consistently only in the hours before scrims. Weekends are dead, after scrims are sporadic.

Given how prevalent trolls and cheaters are as Valve gave up on policing the game, truly open experiences like tf2center are a big risk and I have no interest in devoting time to them knowing odds are good it'll be terrible. It may be hard to ever bring them back to the old popularity because of that.

I have high hopes for RGL open pugs, but they don't seem to attract much vs. captain pugs, would love to hear why more people don't try to utilize them and what could be done to get more adding up.

#12 Fireside Cup Spring 2024 Powered with EssentialsTF announced in News
bearodactylHow will ringers and scheduling be handled, the site only allowed six names to be added to a roster but if it’s two weeks Monday through Thursday each day I’ll need to find ringers for certain days

You are supposed to be able to roster up to 8 players. If you're having issues with that, post your players in the cup-support channel in the Fireside Discord and we'll get them added.

In the rules, teams may also ring up to two players not rostered with the agreement of the opposing team.

As far as scheduling, group stage matches are planned for 10:30 EDT May 13-16. Playoffs at 10 EDT May 20-23.

MelonssMelonsshere it is!Sheet updated to include Week 4 matches o7

Thanks for keeping this up, it's injected a little fun energy into the season.

But please, please replace Diop with Jaguar on scout our team so I stop hearing half my team complain about it in scrims every night.

MelonssALSO PLEASE LMK IF I GOT YOUR ROSTER WRONG! Right now each team only has six players to keep their total score fair. To do this I simply chose the players with the highest scores, so if your roster is incorrect, dm me the correction and I'll fix when I can!

Good luck on your matches this week, everyone!

You could probably get 95% of the way there by pulling down the paid roster for each team, maybe?

#24 Getting Old in Off Topic

Very glad to hear you're taking it seriously. But, just fyi, muscle relaxers and painkillers are extremely different things. If you're worried about some of the scarier parts of prescription painkillers, (and it's good to be wary, though they are extremely useful for many people used correctly!), that really has no bearing on most of what they might prescribe as a muscle relaxant. At least be forward and clear with the Doc/PA about your concerns and I hope they can help find things that work for you.

#15 Getting Old in Off Topic

47 here. (fuck, I had held out hope all along I was at least younger than SpaceCadet)
Getting older has consequences
I just finished doing a 6-month rehab of a frozen shoulder that seems to have been caused by bad posture working from home during the pandemic, for example.
Little things like sleeping incorrectly can mess up my neck for a couple of days.

For reasons mentioned above, I would stay away from chiropractors. Spine issues can become extremely serious, but also minor things can mess them up for long periods. There are good exercise routines to help, but you might not want to do them until you heal up. You put a lot of stress on your spine and back muscles doing things all day, it's very hard to stop aggravating a minor injury, especially as you age and your recovery periods get longer.

I highly, highly recommend finding an orthopedic practice if you have persistent or chronic issues with your joints at all.

Congrats on changing the subject from your immature shitty behavior to your side hobby of harassing your ex boyfriend and getting your circlejerk to call him a pedo all over the community.

It's a master class, really, you should consider running for office.

#1 Plinko LFT S5 in Recruitment (looking for team)

Hi - I am Plinko (aka Gamer_Dad), looking to play IM next season - pocket solly or maybe medic.

Had a few ESEA seasons back in the teens mostly as medic and a little scout/demo.

Would strongly prefer to play pocket solly next season if I can. I got the chance to play in Amateur this past season and think I made a lot of strides and can be a solid player with an IM team next season.

Got to get back into the game with a good group in S3 and S4, but that team is no more so looking to find somewhere to land.

RGL
ESEA
Discord: plinkotvb#8599

I have a fairly open schedule any night after 9:30 EST, cannot commit to much in the earlier time slot.
