After working closely for the past week with majin, I'm pleased to announce our new ESEA Pug System. The system provides an extremely easy and efficient way to startup pick up games (or Pug's) with other ESEA Premium members and Instructors. To use the system, just join the ESEA Pug Server (18.104.22.168:27015) and type '.ready'. After that the system will advertise in #esportsea saying how many more people are needed. You can also type '.pug' in IRC to see more detailed information including who is playing, what map, as well as the status of the pug (what half, etc).
Other features include the ability to change to 1v1, 2v2 ... 6v6 mode as well as changes the rounds per half from 2 all the way to 17 (for all those STA lovers). Premium Members follow this link for detailed information.
Other features include a vote to either continue playing or reset the pug if a player drops as well as map voting as soon as everyones ready. We've been bug testing (special thanks to Wizard-) and we've ironed most of them out. If you do notice something or have a feature suggestion please feel free to either pm myself (lp|kane) or majin (ms2-majin) on IRC and let us know. We plan on expanding this in the coming weeks to make it even cooler so check back frequently.
As we said from the start our goal is to continually improve both the experience and value we offer to our premium members. As other sites begin to offer similar services we'd like to remind both our current members as well as potential ones that our promise is to be the innovators and not the followers. We'll continue to offer new and exciting features that we hope will help to make gaming even more popular, and more importantly, more fun.
