Maybe we could get the Faculty of Academy Instructors group going again.

Who else is interested in helping out new coaches? Shout here and sign up to the Faculty group.

You could also sign up for 145 Club.


Newer coaches may use ANY CRP team.
Halfling and Goblin teams may play for a coach with ANY CR/Win%
Underworld, all zombie, all skeleton teams etc may be submitted by coaches who wish to help coach newcomers.
(Sign up as Faculty)

Please prefix faculty teams with [F] to distinguish them. e.g. [F]aculty Raiders

What's the format? I would like to help, but really only at NA times. Open round robin tires me out, as I get tons of PMs from mostly euro folks and have to turn almost all of them down. I would love to help by lurking on IRC and an occasional game at night (0300 bbtime), but if it's a seasonal thing then I don't think I have time to commit.

Also: If you can take an "L" onto this acronym I really think you've got something there.
Faculty of Academy Instructor Legends or something? Wink

isn't [A] just one of games vs newbies?

If you want to be added to the staff, send a PM to the staff members as listed on the group page. If even Kryten can't help you, you'll probably have to contact Christer himself (or write a support ticket). Well, you probably know all this. Wink

Didn't know you can play all-crappy-linemen teams in the 145 Club. Makes things even more tempting...


145 Club is open RR.

[A] is dead. any action would need to be in [L]eague.

If you can get people to sign in to IRC then that would work for one off games. Is IRC any busier these days?

I'd be happy to make a [F]'in Dirty Cranberries zombie team and help out. I'm far from a great tactical coach, but I have a lot of free time in evenings and am easy going and patient, and more than happy to help out new coaches however needed. I can make no promise that I wont overuse the word dude and end all sentences with a smiley face though Very Happy

I'd be happy to help when I can. Not the greatest coach but could help in terms of dos and donts, etc.

I'm not the best coach either, but I know the basics.
And I like to help.

So will the 'academy' division also be reinstated? Or will this happen in [L]?
*sorry, see that you answered this already.


So is the A division dead forever, or intended to be reinstated? I think having an academy division outside the league structure to refer new coaches to would be preferable. At the moment new coaches experience a threshold joining a league, often leaving them as fresh blood in the sharkpool of [R]. Ultimately, this might well cost us some coaches in their early phase.

Ideally, we could implement a rule that allows a coach who has played <50 (or some number) [R] games to transfer his [A] teams to [R].

I also enjoy teaching the game. I feel confident enough to teach anything, really. Dark elves and lizardmen are the races that feel most like 'mine', followed by wood elves, skaven, halflings and slann.

you don't have to join anything for this, right?
just make a [L] team and apply in gf, just like a ranked team...

EDIT: for new coaches that is, the group is for the teachers (at least that's what I thought)

IRC use has dropped off quite a lot but you should be able to see someone in there. I can see Kryten and Woodstock. Bowlbot & Nuffle should be there all the time.


Let's get some more coaches & faculty in there.

Out of curiosity, why did Academy stop functioning? It's where I first started playing way back when.
