Something where competant players could sign up to coach newbies would be awesome! then no one can kick people for "bad play" because they can just coach them!
After reading this from the negative awards thread, I came up with an idea to encourage newbie training. So here's the pitch: let's kill multiple swifts with a single screamer missile by reviving the clan scene. Let's reignite the clan wars. The last clan vs clan thing that I can recall was back when ISP
still existed. During previous planetwars, clans were of little importance too. As such, I feel that if other clan leaders got together, maybe we could create some "friendly" competition to revive interest in clans.
So, here's the idea:
1.) Find a bunch of new players who want to learn or perform open recruitment.
2.) Create midsized games with these clans with their adopted new players as training exercises.
3.) Have these new players compete at the end of the cycle for glory of the clans they represent.
4.) Create a meta game around clan vs clan activities?
For this to work, we'll need newbies (or low end players) and some clans who are interested. If other clan leaders/representatives would like to pitch in ideas, that'd be great too. We would each benefit from revival in the clan scene I think as well as the community as a whole by training newbies for the big team game.
