Not everyone can mentor. This is the issue. We need to establish maybe 1 or 2 people for each class (competitive classes first and foremost) that are capable of doing an adequate job mentoring. These would have to be people that know the competitive scene well, and have not only a knowledge of their own classes but the classes that they play against.

Perhaps we can have people sign up and then narrow it down?

Yes good idea. Everyone that wants to mentor sign up here!

What do you mean by people who know the competitive scene? Should they have played in leagues?

I'd love to be a Mentor for Soldier. Maybe Google or Afro could help me or even Greezy.

@Eraser; I think Greezy means who's got good expericence with that Specific class, like who plays it in PUGS and Scims. Am I right, Greezy, or partly right?

No, just people who know what each class is going to be doing, how they'll be playing on the maps, and how to counter it. Having experience with PUGS, scrims, lobbies, etc is crucial as well obviously.

Well, I would volunteer for a class or two, but I'm really rusty (and my keyboard & mouse keep dying periodically, which is kinda inconvenient during a firefight)... even then I'm still pretty decent, but I'm not particularly exceptional for now.

When everyone who wants to signs up, I'll make a list and then get Eraserhead to help me narrow it down to 1 or 2 per class.

Well I play a lot of demo and could answer a few questions I guess. But really I don't see what is so difficult about tf2 you need mentoring to understand.

Same here, skills come with experience of playing a lot in tf2, explaining in words on what to do isn't going to teach much.

lol i want to be teached civilian.

but seriously, i found this info from Tidelag rather enlightening:

Tidelag wrote:For example, the league team that I recently left/got kicked out of contained players who had played tf2 for three weeks but were better than most. How did they get good so quickly. They got help, mentored by some top european players.

So to my conclusion. We've got people in this clan who has great potential, like Cake, but don't have a lot of experience and knowledge. Of course we could have an individual training for those.

So it would be great if we could have top league players coaching us but like Geezy suggested lets start with looking who we have in our own ranks and make a list.

Only people with platinums and golds can mentor.
