Introduction Thread for New Students

Postby gloryordeath on Thu Jan 08, 2009 8:39 pm

Welcome to The Society of Cooks. Please take a moment to introduce yourself here. Your first step to becoming a better well rounded player starts with a simple hello! It's that easy we will teach you the rest.

CC rules to keep in mind if you are new and want to join The Society of the Cooks school. At this time...

New Recruits must earn a promotion to join Assassin games, Terminator games, team games, large games (6 or more players) and games on complex maps (they will be hidden from Join A Game and Game Finder listings). These restrictions do not apply to private games.

Hello all. I am Little Boots and and I'm a CC n00b :)

I'm having a little bit of a hard time getting rolling so I figure this would be a good place to start. I have been trying a number of different maps, single and team play to get a feel for the game. Any tips you folks have would be appreciated.

Hello everyone. Found this game and joined up tonight. Looks cool but haven't played as yet. Is it worth me joining your school now (if you'll have me) or should I get a couple of games under my belt first so I have some frame of reference?

Is there a limit on what rank you can be to enroll? I think this would be fun to do and possibly learn some tips in the process. :)

And maybe knock out a terminator gold medal? :D

Hey there, I have been playing a bit and have got my strat going ok but reading your thread and seeing your simple advice has prompted me to ask you for help, I seem to be stuck at my rank and are just treading water. I have played a lot of interesting games and maps but love both the classic and the world 2.1 and escalting is probably the one I am best at. Would love to have a quick couple of games with your teachers to get their advice and hopefully move on from this stagnation I am in at the moment.

Thanks :)
