Sandhurst RMC (MW Academy): Trainers and Classes
« on: December 22, 2010, 04:36:40 AM »
All trainers interested in the SRMC please post here with your MWLL online game name.  This will allow new recruits who are directed to the website to recognize us.  All trainers will be general studies, if you want to teach a specialty program, please post that with your name.


The curriculum for this first wave is Mech Piloting and Combat.

0. General controls
        1. Pick a team and a spawnpoint (emphasize the difference between airfield and mech hangar, also mention apcs)
          2. Explain buy menu (BA stuff, when to buy ammo, what can be bought where etc.)
            3. Press tab and explain rank, progression and scoreboard information(!!!)
I.  Mech Combat
    1.  Basics
         A.  Purchase Uller A (No JJ or MASC to confuse new players)
         B.  Movement
              a.  Torso Twisting
              b.  Moving Forwards
              c.  Moving Backwards
              d.  Turning
              e.  Throttle management
              f.   Powering/Repairing/Selling your Mech
         C. Radar
                 a. Explain radar circles starting with map
                 b. Explain the radar system and the difference between active and passive
                 c. Explain systems (GECM, BAP, BHP, AECM)
                 d. Explain other systems located there (LAMS, MASC, C3)
                 e. Explain shared information (TAG and NARC)
         D.  Destroy target mech, sell Uller A, buy Uller Prime due to various weapon systems.
         E.  Weapons
              a.  Weapons groups (selection and modification)
              b.  Reticle information
              c.  Chain Firing
          d. Explain weapon's range (emphasis on weapons that exceed the displayed max. range and the damage drop off)
               e. Explain aspects of specific weapons (overheating ACs, MIN RANGE FOR LRMS (!!!))
         F.  Combat
             a.  Targeting
             b.  Aiming (concentrating fire, tactical disarming such as shooting the gauss off a Hollander)
             c.  Heat Management/Coolant
        G.  Group play
             a.  Communication
             b.  C-bill sharing
             c.  C3, Narc, ECM, LAMS, TAG

             b.  MASC
             c.  Terrain Management  (finding and using cover appropriately)
             d.  Armor Management
        J.  Final Test - duel Osiris A against RAC/2 equipped Hollander 2 C.  Hollander will offer token fire and try to manuever against the faster and better armed mech.

Trainers, please go through the curriculum, practice what you can, and be ready to work the new players hard.  The entire session shouldn't take more than an hour or so the first time you run through it.

I'm here to help as well.  I'm well rounded in all combat areas with no real specialties (though I tend to use more IS over Clan tech at the moment).  Been around since 0.1.0, had have a lot of small tips that can help the new ground pounder just starting out.

--adding in time--

GMT -6 (US central time)

Sign me up as a trainer as well. Have started playing with 0.2, brawling is my favorite kind of combat and I like coordinating teams. I can also pilot any asset in the game, be it tanks, aeros or mechs. Further I could also give some advice on ba combat.

Edit: GMT +1 for me as well.

I'll help as a basics trainer or assistant. Personally i focus on brawling (mostly quick strike) or direct fire support.

Probably useful to add relevant time-zones for setting up sessions... That would be GMT+1 for me.
Alternative language: German.

You can poke me too if you'd like a trainer.
GMT+1

I can explain all the basic stuff,
especially things like group play, team leadership, etc.
but I can share info in all regards. Maybe with exception of LongTom (nordwars still feels pain after my last attempt in it and scoring triple kill from 200m... one almost-dead enemy beatstick and 2 brand new friendly heavy Mechs. :'( Oh, and let's not forget the end of the Match - Shot at enemy Ncat which got stomped over by my teammates during bullet flight time... which hit right in them scoring doublekill for me)

I'd love to be a trainer, I'm proficient in all areas but my specialties are ASF and brawling. My timezone is GMT-6 (US Eastern).

I will volunteer when I can also, -7 GMT (US Mountain).

I could cover all of the fields you have there, though Advanced Controls would be my strongest suit.

Volunteering my copious free time.  I'm in PST (GMT -8), and tend to be available during the week in the evenings and early morning.

I can cover everything listed, and my specialty is...eh, everything but ASF.

I'm in. I'm in GMT-8 (US Pacific Time) and I'm generally available on Tuesdays and Thursdays and weekends. Sometimes Monday, Wednesday, Friday at night. I'm good at most things. I love ASF and support/missile boating/sniping. Not the best at brawling but I can still pass some tips/experience along.

Count me in as teacher and assistant, I'm not the best teacher in the world, but I can still explain most basics.

Also, even though I'm GMT+1, I usually play during "US-times" (that is up until 7AM for me ~ 1AM EST)

I suck too much to offer my help in a training perspective, but i just wanted to add my support to this idea.

I really think that it will help people get off the ground, perhaps once it's up and running proper the devs could link to it on the main page?

Seriously props to all of you guys.

But seriously it would help to have a "target" to practice radar tactics and maneuvering.

I've been given permission by Seraph to use our Tactical HQ #1 US-IL server for this purpose.

I have administration abilities on our servers and can run the controls for a training session.

PM me to set up a time and date for the first class.
