Hi, I was kindly pointed to this thread to look for guidance as a newbie. :)

I see it looks a bit like the Academy is in hiatus. Nevertheless, here goes nothing.

I've spent two weeks on and off, getting to know the basics of MWLL and I'm proud to say I manage to not instantly die every time I leave the hangar! I can even do some damage occasionaly.

So, I'm looking for people to hook up with via Teamspeak or whatnot, to have a stab at actually voice-coordinating with teammates. I've been on the Outreach TS3 server, but I seem to always miss the busy times. My timezone is GMT+1, drop a line if you like.

What sort of time do you play?  If it's not during the day I can give you a bit of training.

If you see any of the people in the list on page one on outreach TS, just go say hi and ask if they are available for a session, they are a friendly bunch.

I guess I'm usually on later at night, roughly around 20:00 GMT, plus or minus an hour. Sometimes later than that.
Thanks for the welcome, I'll have a look out for you guys!

Yes, please.  I'll take anything you care to divulge.  Getting nowhere trying to figure it out myself.  Don't know how to practice this game.  Keep dying way too much.
Yes, I wish him dead, but... rocket fire from long range... I don't know...
somehow it lacks that... personal touch.

One of the aspects a lot of new players struggle with is that standing still makes your aim better, but standing still makes you vastly easier to hit.

You can always run your own server and join it locally, or join one of the servers that has nobody on it at the moment, and practice practice practice just running around and aiming at stuff. 

Jump jets take a bit of practice.  Holding W or S will move you forward or backward in the direction you're looking (torso rotation), not the direction your feet are travelling. 

When playing on a live match, feel free to let your team know that you're new and open to advice.  Also, ask if anybody wants a wingman, take a non-LRM mech, and just follow along behind them and do whatever they do.

When your team looks like it's retreating, you should retreat (even if you don't know why) and regroup.

Tracked vehicles are currently getting stuck on all sorts of things.  Until this gets adjusted (next patch?) I would avoid them as it's very frustrating and easy to have happen.

Don't get suckered chasing people deep into their territory unless you're fine with getting killed for it.

Expect to die a lot.

Greetings POTENTIAL STUDENTS NAME,

Thank you for your interest in Royal Military Academy Sandhust.

I am afraid I am temporarily unavailable due to sickness/prison/travel/war

Please direct any questions to your preferred instructor on the main page, or ask around at the outreach TS3 channel.

I would be interested in this if someone would be willing to teach me :)

GMT -8 (i think) and I need help in pretty much every area (O_O game too hard)

What timezone are you in? And what area would you like training for?

@Gouty: please remove me from the list, i don't really have time anymore.

If you don't mind me critting everywhere, feel free to add me to the list.

I am decent at killstealing hit and run tactics or usage of heavy and assault mechs.
