I'm looking for a gunboat mentor. If you're top tier at gunboat and willing to coach me please send me a message.

I'm totally fluent in Spanish, a mentor, and a gunboat expert...

I said Spanish because I have another Spanish-speaking Gunboat Mentor in the reserve. I don't think anyone mentioned we need one?

If you can take more students, just PM me and I'll add you to the list for more! I could definitely use your help (in English).

I'd like to learn more about the gamestyle, but I'm still a beginner and I'm afraid that at my level of competence, being coached would be a loss of the time for the mentor... Are there "fixed" resources like written guides or videos so that I can catch up and master the very basics?

We have mentors for every skill level so I'd still recommend applying. If you're interested in this game, you're not a loss of time.

I'm trying to write more, like about opening moves and stuff, but there is only so much time in a day...

I stumbled about your blog just the other day, and I know you have already heard much praise about your work, but having the opportunity now I wanted to let you know I think your detailed account of the the greatest game of all time is superb (and a really good way of learning about some deeper mechanics and thoughts about gunboat). Thank you very much for your work.
