kalishnikov wrote:Excellent, great ideas guys and I'm quite glad to hear some feedback; please keep it coming. So far everything posted here is something to think about. I'll gladly do what I did in the past with this thread and program as well as mentor a new player (just one though, at one point I had 3'ish at all times and that was "difficult"). A "matchmaker" I will try to be, that seems the best to keep things organized, relevant and uncluttered.

As far as keeping it "informal" and "not adopting it into team CC," perhaps I don't understand the inference? Do you mean informal as in how it used to exist, i.e. "just a sticky in a forum" and not an official "part of the site"? If so, yes SoC should be your (CC's) main focus and this should be "by the players, for the players." I may have suggestions but I first require clarification.

I'm happy to see so much interest though, we had much luck with players in the past and could do so again.


I just mean as of right now, we don't have the resources to probably fully adopt this into an official CC endeavor, but I'll always do my best to support the program as I can. If you want to brainstorm, send me a PM!

I would love to try this. Sign me up!

I'd rate myself a 3 I can win games but I need help with strategy and doubles. I will probably be getting a membership soon. I personally would prefer Bruceswar as a friend of mine is currently under his mentorship. Please keep the program going!

Mentoree, level 4.
Random Map Strategy
Doubles Strategy

I need help with random map strategy and doubles strategy, especially the two together, especially w/ 4-players, especially w/ auto, escalating, chained. You know what... make that level 3.5 :)

(I realize this may mean I need two mentors.)

SOC is great for standard maps, but once people go off OR if they are interested in other maps from the start, it doesn't help and may actually hurt. There just is no bearing between the strategy given for classic and, say, Age of Merchants, AOR or even Fuedal strategy, never mind things like Iraq.

I think SOC is great, except that the distinctions above are not clear to new people. They are given to assume that SOC is going to help them with ALL maps and it just is not so.

Since SOC just won't be able to handle all the diversity, I think a program like the mentor pairing would be best. However, there needs to be some kind of objective measure for who does and does not qualify. Straight rank won't cut it, because the rank reflects all the maps played, not just the ones a person is good at. I am not sure maprank is the best measure, but it might be the best available now.

Also, I think we need some kind of feedback and perhaps a kind of award system to encourage people to both participate and participate well. A straight reward for participation might be too much and too complicated, but perhaps a competition based on mentor ratings or something of that sort? Also, would not hurt to offer a medal to people who do a good deal of mentoring.

usernamer wrote:i would like to be a mentor. skill rating thing 3 as i can hold my own against majors / colnels. am normally major. if i play games im better at, can go up to colnel, if i play too much doodle assassin, can go down a little.

Strengths:
World 2.1 and team games - dont have any real weakenesses which i couldnt mentor on.
how would this work though obvious for team games - but for rest, is it just general advice or giving a range of suggestions for them to choose from, since if u gave specific advice on a situation, it could be unfair if someone thinks they're playing say a new recruit but they're effectively not (depending on how much advice is given/acted upon)

Even specific advice would leave a lot up to the player over the course of the game. but the player could announce a mentor, similar to when someone takes turns for another. :)

I am definitely a 1 and I'd like to be a mentoree. Looking for help on how to play the different spoils. Also just general strategy tips would be great.

Postby Viceroy63 on Wed Dec 28, 2011 7:11 pm

I would also like to help. I am about an average player 2-3 rating or somewhere in between. I have played about 50 games winning almost half of them. I am also taking the SoC training course which is one of the things that I would recomend to any new player.

I think that this is an excellent idea. A lot like the A-A sponsoring program but with out the vices. Lol.

So how does this work anyway? Do I pick a name from a list or is there some one who assigns the new members to the mentors?
