Dream Team Academy
So, I have decided to challenge some of my clanmates and other pro players of the community to take *one* new player under their wing and help them get better at sins. We will look for people who are dedicated and are serious about getting better. I am not trying to help out every person at once, but rather focus our attentions on one or two people at a time to get them caught up to speed and ready to contribute to 5v5s.
This means each pro takes a player under his wing, and at the very least should:
- Shows him "pro" opening, how to take asteroids with only a colony ship
- Shows him how to watch replays, who to watch in those replays.
- Helps him pick a faction that he is interested in
- Answers questions and encourages growth on Steam
- Plays 5v5 with them, introduces them to other pro players.
- Make sure they have fun and stay committed.
If you are new, or a pro, you can post here to sign up and I'll add you to the list.
For the new players:
You need to show some commitment and enthusiasm if you expect to be tutored. Every pro has his own standards for accepting an apprentice. For example, if I have a vacancy, I expect new players to add me on steam after sending me a PM on sins forums notifying me of their interest and steam name. From there I will conduct a small interview just to get to know them and determine their enthusiasm. If I like what I hear, I will add them to the list.
In your post, be sure to include:
- Favorite race (if you have one)
- Your playstyle (Would you describe yourself as passive, aggressive, or some combination there of?)
- Do you have any experience in other RTS before Sins?
- What Time Zone you are in
- Your Steam name
For the pros:
If you are a pro, you too must be committed to helping a player learn in the long haul, and even if you are bored of sins, you still are around on steam to answer questions when you are playing other games. Be communicative and encourage them to play sins with you when you are.
