If you are new to the site then I would recommend the SoC. It worked for me and a whole lot of other lower ranking officer's. It all depends on your eagerness to learn the strategy that is used for the 6 player standard game.

Stinky, may I call you stinky? :D My heart goes all out to you. I see that you are in an SoC training field but you are not using the class forums. The SoC is a mentoring program just as if I were to mentor you on your games.

The problem with mentoring is that people want advice after they finished messing up their games. One of the rules in the SoC is to start the program from the start of the game and not in the middle of the game.

I will make a deal with you and with anyone who wants mentoring. Write me an Email from the very first move. Don't use different emails for different moves but the same email and don't skip any moves and I will mentor you or anyone right from the start.

Meet those conditions and I will mentor anyone. Those are the same conditions in the SoC Only they are experts at this mentoring stuff although I pretty much know my stuff. The only other conditions must be the setting of the game. No FOG or Trench. Only 6 player Standard or terminator, Escalating spoils. No Teams either. Just in case. And only one game.

Meet those condition and use the same email and I will teach you from the very same manual that the SoC does. Or better yet, just use the SoC forum since you are already in a training field 11 if I am not mistaken. They are the best to show you that strategy and if you stick to it you will go up in score and in rank.

The young shaolin student at the temple asked, "Master, which is the best style to learn?" The Old Shaolin munk lighting his pipe replied, "They are all equally good and equally different." "Then I should learn them all, shouldn't I?" retorted the young student. to which the master shaolin puffing on the pipe replied, "It could take an enter life time to truly master just one style. But if you truly master just one style, then you may just be able to master them all."

And the morrow of the story is. Just learn one way to play on one map. Master it and then the rest will come. And if you don't have $8.00 for a pack of smokes, then use a pipe instead.

Hi, Mentoree, skill level 3 - Been here a bit, but need help winning games.

Usually I prefer to play the maps Alexander's Empire, Scotland or Jugoslavia. I am a skilled player of Diplomacy (if anyone here knows that, too) but the force is not with me here. :oops: So I would be thankful to get strategic help.

Is this still being used? Can someone explain to me the process if so?

I feel like this is old and shouldn't be stickied anymore.

Every once in a while someone posts here. I'm always curious whether they ever find a mentor as a result. Maybe there are people who PM the posters. Some high ranked players might actually like playing with people who are expressing a desire to be better at the game because the high-rankers will gain more points playing with them. Or maybe some clans are checking these guys out. Idk, but I don't think I've ever seen someone come back here and ask why nobody has answered them yet.
