Disney Fox Deal
What are everyone’s thoughts? Is this good for the consumer or the development of a potential content monopoly by Disney?

Off-topic Plug: How do machines learn?
I just saw this video on YouTube about AI, what it is what it isn't and where it's going, and as a comp sci geek who work on decision making systems for the Australian resource industry I think it deserves to be plugged and seen by everyone! Enjoy and perhaps discuss?

dislodging a convoy
I've asked this before, and I know I should know, but: what does it take to dislodge a convoy? if one unit attacks a convoying unit does the convoyed unit arrive at its destination, or stay where it started? Does it take two units, a move and a support, which would give the area to the dislodging units? Please explain.

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 (569 D Mod (S))
15 Nov 17 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?
Durga (705 D)
15 Nov 17 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 (569 D Mod (S))
15 Nov 17 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. :)

Bump.
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 (569 D Mod (S))
16 Nov 17 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 (164 D)
16 Nov 17 UTC
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 (1348 D)
16 Nov 17 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.

What happens if your mentor falls out of the top 200?
Durga (705 D)
17 Nov 17 UTC
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 (271 D Mod)

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.

Hey Smokey, I hear you. For me, it's my end game. I have difficulty in pulling the trigger at the right time to run for a solo. I am either just a turn too early or a turn too late.

Anyone available to cancel a game?
I don't know the protocol or how often this happens, but the site crashed, and now Silent Partners-3 is back up, some countries' moves processed and others didn't. I watch all the games in this series (I have set up the games). I hope we're not expected to continue under conditions like these, but i'm open to however people usually handle this.
