Teaching and Hosting for New Players: Volunteers wanted
« on: March 17, 2017, 11:16:14 AM »
Hey guys,

As most of you are aware we have been getting more traffic on the server. We would surmise about 1/3 of these players are new players who don't really know how to play. We are looking for volunteers to commit to 1 hour per week hosting TvB BNE games for new players. 
Any volunteers would host the a TvB game with the title including All Players Welcome. Volunteers would host whatever BNE style game and allow any and all players to enter with no requests for new players to watch. Volunteers would be expected to teach new players how to build properly, they will not use profanities and offensive language when trying to teach a new player. 

In other words we are trying to get some volunteers to commit one or two hours a week to just hosting games with an emphasis of parding new players. Anyone who is interested please post bellow.

Side note Its unreasonable to think that we can grow this server without allowing new players to play. While videos on youtube and twich help new players to learn to play none will never gain any traction without in game experience. If you enjoy playing war2 and want to see the game around for many years to come, please commit to hosting New Player games for 1 hour a week.

Volunteer list:
~Tora~ - Monday and Tuesday- 9am-11am
Mousey- Sunday 2100-2200
EviL~Easy aka easycompany- Friday - 8pm-9pm

tbh if it was just easier to host and nobody had to bypass their firewall or w/e this game would be a lot more popular..

the fact that i cannot host my own games and play with other noobs and perhaps vs computers makes this game unplayable

i login, i see maybe 4 games hosted, one is CHOP - to which is very hard to learn, other is GOW - which is full of pros who played this game for 10+ years and the other is a bot match GOWBNECOMPS - to which nobody joins

then i logoff, it's that simple

I usually host up games for anyone either Saturdays or Sundays no specific times though. You can add me to the list of hosts to watch for I guess.

Great Idea Tora! but why don't we make a clan tournament where each clan has to recruit 2 to 4 noobs, teach them how to play GOW for like a month or so then have them battle against each other. Whichever clan wins gets a $ reward.

Can you commit to an actual day and time? It only has to be one hour per week.
