    In all honesty, what kept me from joining pugs for a long time after beginning to play legions was the fear of just getting killed by significantly better players without actually doing anything helpful. The skill curve on legions is viciously steep, yet there are players at the top that can rain down death at those below with little effort. Knowing that I was probably only in the 50-60th percentile, that was my fear so I simply avoided it. Then I became a PT and got dragged into one to test Gorge where I realized they weren't that bad, though Mabel did get a kick out of me not knowing what I was doing.

    Idk.. Just my experience..

    Everyone that does not join pugs out of fear getting dominated have no backbone or however you call it in english. Maybe I am saying it a bit on a hard way but I don't know a different word for it.

    I joined pugs because I had fun in them even though I was really bad. I just used my microphone and started talking with people and having fun. After 3 days I was already picked as a captain because i talked and simply had fun even though I was not the greatest at what I did back then. With other words less qq and more pew pew. If you stop playing pugs because you are /bad/ at it and drop it without getting better then I wonder how that effects your real life.

    There is a lot of Pride in this game, people must grow up (in the euro community). Also application, stop playing LOL so much in in7 chan and join in the weekends. I had 3 weeks to play PUGs all day, i was idling 2-3 hours around in PUG channel while there were a good 9 people in other channels giving no *chocolate cookies* about this game.

    Application, you have a specific kind of personality, you have a thick skin (not in a bad way) and you can laugh when people insult you or tell you you are bad. Other people are not the same as you. They are more sensitive and might get hurt more easily. They don't have your confidence. That doesn't mean they don't have backbone. They might just be more shy than you. I'm sure it's not easy for them to get onto TS for the first time and get thrown into PUG. They might feel they are letting the team down, if they are bad and if anyone criticizes them they might feel really bad too.

    People need to learn to laugh things off, and know that we're joking around with them. Otherwise they get all serious and butthurt, if you're being joked around with, chances are it means you're liked. If we don't like you/don't know you, it'll be different. You'll get the polite run around and probably won't get casually talked to very much, this means you have to become more active so the veteran puggers of this community recognize you and when you join they go "Hey _____"
