Hi,

I know the JKA community has those who duel, play on FFA and siege etc...

But there is a group of us, who play ctf and PUG (mainly with guns).

PUG = Pick Up Game

Basically, PUG's are played in private pug servers with a typical password of 'ctfpug'. The players in the server all spec, and 2 captains have a pistol duel to see who gets first pick. The teams are usually 4v4, and each PUG lasts 20 minutes. Obviously, the team that has the most caps after 20 minutes wins.

Whats makes PUG's different or special?!?

Well, PUG's are fast paced, and do not have boundries or restrictions. Players need a lot of skill when strafing using the force powers avaliable.

To help cope with the fast pace, PUG teams have positions like you would find in any sport. So for example...

A PUG team of 4 will have...

1- Base
1- Chase
2- Offence

The positions give a structure, and means we play like a team.

We also have a resident map maker named Tritoch, who has created custom ctf maps for our pugging pleasure.

I feel this side of JKA is seriously underrated, and a small community has existed for a few years but many are leaving onto other games. Unfortunately there are no fresh players coming through due to lack of knowledge of what we do.

Those who visit our servers usually dont stick around for long because they either get owned, or they dont like to spec for long periods if they are not picked by captains. In a pugging community, you get a reputation for certain positions and are picked often. It can take months and months to master being a pugger, which shows show skillful the players have become.

So i appreciate its not the most approachable of games, and is a reason why the game is underrated.

I always hear people in the JKA community say "This game meant to be played only by sabers" or "using guns is lame". But Pugging is almost another game in its own right, but because it uses force powers there is no other game like it, which makes it unique and interesting.

The game is a few years old now, but the pugging side has a lot more to offer because its gameplay is so unique. This can also lead to 4v4 Tournaments, involving clans and the community.

Below are links to a few JKA vids created by puggers.

Aimbot Detected - Created by Nico

No Prayer For The Dying - Created by Tritoch

Trailblazer - Created by Tritoch

I don't know whether Raven or the community would be interested, but we all share the same common interest with the Jedi Knight series, and would be a shame to lose such a specalised game mode.

Somehow I doubt posting that here would help. There's no real presence of a JK community here, it's all over at lucasforums and whatnot. You'd probably have better luck spreading the word over there (though I suppose you already have)
