Since PugGaming opened up its websites and networks we have been very strong on community based events and other community generated projects.

We have hosted and had a lot of fun doing these events but times changes and so do people. This summer we had a list of events planned for the community in order to get things back on track and rolling with events. As you noticed none happened. This was for 2 reasons. The biggest was Taylynne and I spent a lot of our summer together out and enjoying the finer things in life and not much time with video games and online activities. The 2nd is based on sponsors and timing versus cost for the events we had planned. The big reason I do apologize for but in life things happen for the best.

PugGaming will not be closing or shutting down , and we will still host our minecraft server and the forums in which you will be able to find latest news in PC gaming and talk as it has been. We will still be attempting to generate gamers and gamers to play with each other in various games and so forth.

Hopefully very soon within the next month or so we will be able to start back up with events and activity here at PugGaming. During the downtime we will still throw some random giveaways via our FaceBook and steam group just to keep things alive and going well. However for the larger actual game events those will be at a standby until further notice in which will be posted here on the forums.

We still encourage everyone to stay active via the site and our other networks. We will do one last giveaway for now for those who have been active the past few months and we will try to keep up with those mini events we had planned. As mentioned above our minecraft server will still be hosted and members here will still be playing on it etc. We will still take request to host game servers for our members here on the forums when needed or asked. Nothing is changing in terms of our resources or networks, only the big events which take massive timing / money and more to host.

We believe taking a break and making this post is the right thing to do in order to re-grasp our root of things and take time to prepare the future for PugGaming in a bigger and better way. We also did not want to keep everyone who has been active out of the loop in terms of the events we previously planned to have.


tl;dr : Our big events are at a standby / hault for now. We will still in the future host larger events and contest. Members should still stay active as nothing else is changing.

Really interesting facts I think.  But hopefully people will stay active even if we don't do big events.  Perhaps we can become more active on the forums before our next major event! =) So that way we can do even more forum/community events, and get better feedback for the long run!

I agree, However it seems to be the one thing the community has found in which keeps players interested. We have tried source based servers like css, tf2 etc nothing seemed to stick like minecraft. We are always open to new games to try and so forth and always on the look for others. If you or anyone else has an idea on a game which we can host a server for please do let us know

Like Killjoy said, it is what has stuck.  Sad I enjoyed our tf2 server when we had it, but there were times when not too many people were play, if any.  Minecraft has just ended up being the most populated and well used one of all the servers.  But if you do have any games you'd play on let us know, and we can try to set up a server.  Then be sure to play it and get friends to play as well! So that way we can keep it more populated.

What games would you, and anyone else reading this, like to see servers for?
cs:s?
tf2?

Damn that is sad to hear. I was anticipating the events. Oh well, I guess I can wait a while. Anyways, what giveaway are you talking about? Did not quite mention it. And when will the events be rescheduled to?

That sucks... Hopefully it will get back up and running again soon! I'm trying to be more active on the forums from now on. Since CS:GO came out recently hopefully we can have some tournaments for that soon Smiley
