New York is the best.
Now that I've gotten everybody's attention, would anybody be interested in playing a game of American Empire where everybody plays as the region that they are from? I think that might be kinda fun and could be a way to release some of this clearly geographical tension that is brewing in the forums.
I'd have to claim NY

Instead of regulations, (YAWN), lets have unrestricted gun laws and limitless purchasing. The only rule is the retail employees *must* dress like cookie monster to make gun stores more kid friendly. Offer gun buyers a plate of CoOKiEs.

Another idea: we should have a mentee showcase game a while after things get going where the mentees show off what they’ve learned.
Love this idea, thanks to DO and CB for all their hard work on this project. and not only thanks, but I signed up.

Hey Yoyo, we're definitely going to look into things like that after this kicks off more.

**we will always need more mentors so seriously if you're in the top 50 you should really sign up
CommanderByron (654 D (S))
Wed 15 Nov UTC
Just an update / bump for the thread:
we are currently over 25 applicants in on the apprentice side, and 17 in on the mentor side. Excellent numbers that are very scale-able. Please keep applying. Especially new players. Don't be afraid to get involved in the community and don't think you aren't good enough for this because this is a program meant to help you get good.
Could we do a peer review program as well? I'm not a noob but I don't think my tactics are really all that great, so a maybe mid-level review system could be put in place to help us middle of the road folks out?
DemonOverlord (554 D)
Wed 15 Nov UTC
There is actually a middle system. Sign up and you'll get a mentor with a really high gr. This isn't just for noobs
CommanderByron (654 D (S))
Wed 15 Nov UTC
Absolutely correct I wouldn’t paint myself as a noob (been playing for about 5 years now) but I will absolutely be taking advantage of this. :)

Uh, do I come here for help?
I haven't used these forums in forever. This is certainly an exciting new initiative though. Loved this game since high school. :) I signed up to be a mentor, but I don't have a ghost rating it seems. However things turn out, hope people have a lot of fun with this program!
How and when will we be notified of the pairings?
CommanderByron (654 D (S))
Thu 02 AM UTC
(+3)
When is a bit tricky; we are working on the pairings and with the volume this first round will be a bit longer than subsequent applications.
However stay tuned for PMs when we are all set and ready to rolllll in the meantime please feel free to +1 all of mine and DOs posts so we can have lots more +1s .

:) they make us work faster.
AttiWoolf (97 D)

Would any of the mentees especially be keen to start a group chat in a more accessable program like discord or Google chat or something to hash out ideas with each other? We'd have to work around not talking to people in the same game so we don't accidentally meta, but it could be fun.

PS- sorry DO!!! Definitely meant thanks DO and CB. :)
yoak (1195 D)
Thu 08 AM UTC
This is a fantastic idea. Thanks for setting this up. I've signed up as a mentee. My first thought was that it would be good to do both, but though I was eligible in October, my November GR fell too far. I'm TAing School of War right now anyway, so maybe next month. (Actually... come to think of it, November games aren't going all that well either. ;-) )

Oh, and asking about fluency in languages is a fantastic idea!

I'm in the middle of everyone, I could quite easily become an apprentice but I'd rather players like Hellfire Missile (someone respond to him please) got the mentors over me.

Ogion, shouldn't really be a problem but if someone feels like they can't learn anything new from their mentor they can request a new one (request has to be reasonable and substantiated)

Claesar (104 D Mod)
Fri 10 AM UTC
There was a field to mention what languages you can tutor in. If you entered only Spanish, then you will only receive mentees that speak your own language.
