Rookies

Hosted by:

What is Rookies?

Rookies is a new community event aimed at helping lower players become better at the game through competitive play. Mentors from clans such as Villain/-G-/Mahou and more dedicate a week of their time to help out a clan team become better at competitive play. At the end of the week, there is a one day streamed playoffs day to show how the teams progressed throughout the week. This will be a re-occurring tournament so don't worry about missing out on the first week!

 

Tournament Information:

7/54, Team comps consist of either 6 tier 8's and 1 tier 6 or 5 tier 8's and 2 tier 7's.

Map Selected Weekly

8 Clan Teams (7 players from each clan + Up to 2 Reserves for Backups)

8 Mentors (1 for each team)
1 week of boot camp (1-2 Hours for 5 Days preferred, 3 Days and 1 Hour each required)
Winner/Loser Bracket Tourney (Reference Picture)

Here are the Rules for the tournament along with other useful information

 

Prizes:

Players(Per person on team)

     1st: 1500 gold
     2nd: 1000 gold

     3rd: 700 gold

     4th: 500 gold

Other Information:

Mentors will be screened before accepted based on ability to teach effectively and keep a level head when players make mistakes. Must be familiar with 7/54 or 7/68 format.

The team and mentor will meet on a scrim night against other teams on a Sunday. There the mentor will help identify improvement areas to focus on for the upcoming week.

Mentors are randomly assigned to a team and they play as a tier 1 in battles and call for the team. 

After the scrim night, the maps are announced and you have the next week to improve before the tournament on Saturday.

This is a good Idea, it's sort of like an unofficial bronze league type thing. Something you may want to add to the the mentor app is a "tell us why you should be a chosen mentor" section.

 

Also I would say that having a mentor at 2500-3000 wn8 is good and all, but there are people out there around my level that could easily mentor and outcall the unicums that you are looking for to be mentors. In my eyes it's all about teamwork and ease of strat progression for the team. For instance you throw a 3500 wn8 mentor at a 1500 average recent and overall wn8 team the difference may be too much for the team to get complicated strats that would be needed to beat certain games, while on the other hand someone around the 2k level would be able to relate and make the team be able to understand simple but effective strats that counter very complex strats. Another thing is not all unicums know how to work as a team. *stat padders*

That's not a bad idea might be something we look into! :)

The goal was to pick players who have already mastered the game, and yes I very much agree that not all people who are very good at the game work well with a team or can call. But when you have recent wn8 above 2500 you show a understanding of basics in wot, which is also something the mentors have to be teaching as well. Something a lets say 1400 recent wn8 player may not be able to do. I'm also not saying its impossible for someone with those recent's to be allowed to mentor just rather unlikely. Hope this information was helpful

Stats are never a full tell into a player, like you said I've seen players are 4k recents that would be terrible for teaching and I've seen people at mid 2k's that would be awesome. Most of the mentors are going through a decent amount of screening to make sure they'd be able to help an average team progress and become better team players. Also, most of the mentors understand these aren't high skill players, most understand they'll need to be going through more basic information and help players learn maps/positions. 

 

While a 2k player might relate to a 1.5k player better, they'd also be able to help them out less since they are relatively similar in skill. The way I got better at the game was constantly playing with people much better than I was. While not everything will stick, a start is always better than nothing. I know a few of the people mentoring and I can say that the ones I know are cool people who have experience in silver league and genuinely want to help players become better at the game. We aren't accepting people just based off of if they have good stats because believe me, I know several people with good stats that would be awful for helping others.

Thanks! We do plan on trying to work with people's schedules.  It will be how we match mentors and Teams together.  If you are interested after summer let me know. :)  We plan on running this event about every other week.

Recent WN8, but those are just guidelines.  There will be exceptions made. :)
