    I have no idea if I wrote the right times so check the vet pug group for your timezone or wait for Trictator to fix.

    Server Password will be: pugpugpug
    IP: 109.70.149.121:27850

    Nothing fancy this time, just a free for all with specs disabled and autoassign on


    Again, see the Vet pug group for the exact time it starts.

    See you all there.

    Yeah, I was going to schedule this myself once I fix emp_main up. Your timezones are messed up so I fixed them.

    Obviously, those who wish to record the games are welcome to join spec, I just want it off for everyone else.

    I have to agree with paradox really, those scrims with lawliet vs seculity were fucking great.

    This was a shitpile.

    All things aside, why were there so many greenhorns/pubbers in? This was supposed to be a vet pug wasnt it?

    I don't accept the pubber bullshit. Here's why:

    I played on both the winning and losing side across 7 rounds. 4 wins, 3 losses. I commanded 3 of those rounds.

    The pubbers or "non-vets" were the most useful players on my team every single fucking time. They were the ones killspawning, they were the ones building my refs, my turrets, my buildings. They were the ones following their squad leaders.

    At least 50% of the vets, including clanners, and ACTIVE ones at that, were just treating it as if that work was "beneath" them, like they were too good for it. Nearly every round was ended by an APC rush, and on every single occasion, it was an APC that was largely ignored, except for a few players. Either that, or the Commander put himself in a dumb position. It's like no-one has any respect for how quickly an APC full of people who are actually trying to do the same thing will kill a CV. I saw an APC empty 20 people in the space of 15 seconds. 20 fucking people. How do you not expect that to kill a CV in just a few moments?

    People need to get their shit together and stop dicking about. I felt embarrassed for the pubs that I had join, when they were easily the most useful players there. This was not a good example of "high-level" Empires.

    It was indeed quite awful.

    First round was Dustorm. BE traps NF comm, gg in about 10 minutes.

    Second round was Bush. Predator gets stuck, gg in about 9 minutes.

    Third round was Mvalley. BE walks to the NF base and traps Lawliet, gg in about 4 minutes.

    Fourth round was Midbridge. Someone griefs BE by mining their cv in the water, gg in 1 minute 50 seconds.

    Fifth round was Canyon; this was the only moderately good round. It was laggy as fuck though, but we managed to stretch it out for 25 minutes. BE won.

    Sixth round was Cyclopean. AZK gets rushed by two APCs on top of the BE hill and we lose in about 7 minutes.

    Seventh round was Chain. Freaknovich decides to drive north to the BE rax despite not having any infantry support, gets stun stickied, and gg in 4 minutes.

    So yeah, you really didn't miss much at all.

    I didn't get stuck, an apc chased me down and stuned me.

    Still a shitty pug though.
