Mentoring Pilot Program

Postby thehippo8 on Sat Jul 14, 2007 6:46 pm

Do you wish you had someone to answer your questions when you first joined CC? To tell you about Greasemonkey and how not to play freestyle? Well why not help mentor a new recruit and share the knowledge you've gained?

Are you an elite player, tired of playing the same old people again and again, hoping for some fresh blood to join your ranks and energize your games? Why not coach the next great player yourself?

Are you a new player completely lost about what to do and how to play? And just what is this greasy monkey thing anyway?


Or are you just tired of losing games all the time and want to get a stripe?

Then the mentoring program is for you! Check it out!


==============================================

Based on the popularity of Itrade's thread, and the fact he was getting overwhelmed with it, I've set this up as a central place for mentors and those wanting help to meet up. This is very informal and open to everyone. Post here if you want to help, or if you want help. Playing in games with your mentoree is not required, you can just offer advice from the "sidelines", in case you're worried about losing points. ;-)

New players looking for help, please pm the mentor. Very few mentors (other then me, I think I pm'ed all my mentees) will pm you. Don't be shy, if their name is on this list they have VOLUNTEERED to help without coercion, just don't spam them or be rude. And if they say they are busy, give them time or try someone else.

When posting, please list either Mentor or Mentoree and skill level.


If you want to be a mentoree, please rate your skill level:

1 - I'm brand new and know nothing about World Domination
2 - I'm decent at the board game, but need help navigating the site
3 - Been here a bit, but need help winning games
4 - Need help with a specific gametype, e.g. freestyle, escalating, etc...


If you want to be a mentor, please rate your skill level and list any strengths:

1 - I know the site well and understand basic strategies
2 - I win a fair amount of games, but play mostly lower ranks
3 - I can hold my own in most games and have played the top ranks regurlarly
4 - I consider myself a top player and an expert on strategy

Strengths:

Perspective Mentorees: start at the bottom of the mentor list and work up when pm'ing people that meet your criteria for a mentor. The bottom are the most recent additions, I know this is a crappy fix but it's the best I've got.[/quote]

If there are mistakes or changes in status, please note them here and they'll be fixed.

Note: I'll try to keep this updated periodically.

Also, feel free to PM me with questions. I can't offer much in the way of mentoring at the moment but I'll gladly answer any questions you can throw my way. :mrgreen:

I'll help mentor.

I'll rate at 3 - I know a decent amount about the site, have played nearly 500 games, know a fair bit about nearly all settings, and specialise in doubles no cards unlimited.

Postby Molacole on Sun Jul 15, 2007 9:24 am

4 - I consider myself a top player and an expert on strategy

Strengths: I know how to win., manipulating the game with troop placement and minimul speaking, how to control (even if only somewhat) the pace of the game when I'm the weakest player or close to it.



I'll mentor somebody

I'm not helping any question marks.

The person must be active with chat so we can discuss the game.

If I get somebody who doesn't know how to respond to questions then I'll move on to the next person in the list...

Postby mandalorian2298 on Sun Jul 15, 2007 11:04 am

I would like to corrupt....I mean mentor new players. 8-[

I am about level 3 player. I favor Sequential, Flat Rate and Unlimited settings and agressive style of play.

Finally, I agree with Molacole that players should play 5 games on their own before joining this program.

I'll be a mentor. Level 4 (I mean, I'm no horseman of the apocalypse, but I do have my moments :D )

Strengths: escalating, singles, doubles, 1v1, mafia

I would also like to make a recommendation: that there be a link in the first post of this thread to wacicha's "for new players just starting out" thread (which used to be stickied), which does a great job of summing up a lot of basic strategic info.

i'd like to sign up as a mentoree. i think i'm kinda level 4 but i still haven't deciphered all the secrets of CC. so i still need help in terminator and assassin games and also in escalating.

i mostly play standard 4-6 player games sequential flat rate and unlimited.

recently i've started testing the following settings: terminator escalating/no cards and chained. i'd also love to get a decent partner for doubles game. i have played quite a few but nothing in a large scale with a constant partner.

Since you're looking for something specific, let's wait to see who steps up to volunteer, either of the current group or someone new.

If anyone wants to work with DIM, just note it here so we know he's covered.
