I'd be willing to coach the newbies
I could specifically coach newbies on rebangs. Just pm me online if you see me or reply to this post. I can coach up to 2 newbies at a time.
It would be a 2 week coaching period on a rebang, such as The New Explorers or Pirates Heyday. I would corp with any newbie that wants to learn. I would start by teaching them to the basics such as ship maneuver, combat with npcs, taxiing, escorting.
Once they understood that i would move to stage 2: Trading, Basics of building, defending planets, and ship choices for certain tasks.
Stage 3: Advance building tactics (planet layouts, dome placement, planet types, solar cannon settings and final colony settings such as cash cows or people factories), fighting players (could teach them via duels), invading, and player stat settings (rebang setups and perma setups).
If they pass all 3 stages i could sign them off to try off their newly learned skills by "testing them", in which case the player and I would corp together on a new rebang and play it all the way through, and i could give them last minute tips and evaluate them through the process. If he gets a medal, or if I feel that he did a good job, i would pass him. This would unofficially take away his newbie status.
Hey all you newbies if you are interested in this program just send me a message on the forums (mcdfatty) or online if you see me (zed55).
