We've listened to the players.

We have heard what you want.

So, we've made lots of AWESOME changes to iPGN TF2Pug that we hope you'll love too.
Come and give it a try this Easter holidays. Support the community that supports you!

Click HERE for easy access to IPGN TF2Pug through your browser
(this works inside the TF2 web browser too )
Do you use an IRC Client? Well you can access the channel HERE.

Then read on.

"I'm new to competitive TF2 or have not used TF2Pug before"
Here is a quick rundown!

TF2Pug provides a stable and friendly environment for all players, beginner to veteran, to learn or sharpen their skills at TF2 in the common 6v6 format. Here are some of the features:

  • Come and play, 24 hours a day. With the use of IRC and no "server admins" needed to initiate the pug, it is available for everyone to use at any time of the day.
  • We aim to replicate a competitive environment. Rulesets, maps and unlocks are altered as necessary within TF2Pug to mirror whats being used in competitive matchplay.
  • We have made it easy to use. Are you the admin? Starting the game is as simple as typing !login and !start. Are you a player? Just join your correct team and choose a class! All commands to use in IRC can be found HERE. In-game commands are HERE.
  • An Admin and fair Medic allocation system. We have made changes to the Medic allocation system to make it fair for all players. You can still use !medic if you want to play the class for your team, though.
  • Statistics of every player. Updated as they happen HERE.
  • Demos of every pug played can also be downloaded instantly after each pug finishes HERE
  • Mumble servers to use for each pug are available for every pug played. Just sit back, relax - you will be given everything you need to join the Mumble server in 1 click.

We hope to see you soon!

It still exists - people can use !captains after the pug gets 12 players if they like to pick players the traditional way with a medic fight at mid. It just isn't very popular/used often enough to warant a mention. Our system creates teams based on player statistics to make things fair, same with medic allocation.

In a nutshell:
- new players wont get medic for the first 5 pugs (not sure of the exact number actually)
- I'm pretty sure you wont get medic twice in a row
- the 2 players who have played medic the least in the current pug will be assigned the role on each team

bladez can provide a more detailed answer
edit: note what he said above

Oh god, please tell me you don't mean it picks good/regular medics, because that'd mean those several days of TF2Pug playing med only will work against me now rather than the old way in which I'm pretty sure it meant I practically never had to med unless I volunteered.

Edit: Probably a good idea not to type a post, then go away and come back and hit the button without refreshing first 8D

With the class restrictions gameplay is usually standard 6v6

it's unfortunate that this seems to be a common opinion because I really enjoy playing pugs with higher skilled players where they're able to give feedback from which I can improve my gameplay...

Pugs can be enjoyable.

General rude/idiotic people everywhere. Why expect different in a PUG.

Quote:
Elitsm is one of those things I have come to realize will always be in online gaming. Just like all those other negative gamer types I mentioned. Out of all of them this type is my most hated type of online personality. The elitist opinion of my performance in game has no earthly importance on my life.
While I try and remember this I always will try and think about how I deal with another player who may not realize what they are doing is considered to be "wrong" strategically or is not up to the skill that I am

^ This

I agree completely that pugs are often full of muppets and people +music, if you just want to pug thats cool, if you want something a little more serious (you know, where people have and use mics) theres options around
