Hi Zander
 thanks for offering to help, currently the details are being hammered out as to when the session will be - I'll contact you once I have that info - feel free to friend me on steam - drop me a message if your steam name is different from your forum name.

I'm looking for 4 veterans, trainers or CAs active in GMT-6 to help train these players:

Let me know if you're interested  here or in steam

The forums use the same username/password combo you set up for logging into the game, no? There's no additional account creation required.

I know from organising bi-weekly sessions for training that if I want to get some kind of response from CAs I post here not on the steam hub and vice versa if I want to get a message out for new players. I'm basing my opinion on this.

TBH what you're seeing is the fact most people don't want to make a forum account for every game they play

In my experience - the steam hub by virtue of not requiring a second login picks up some traffic, facebook/twitter for the  same reason (account already exists).

I did suggest moving a lot of stuff into the game a while back because of this - you don't need to set up yet another pass/user.

I unfortunately work wednesday nights. I could do a afternoon GMT-5 session, I've hopped into the lvl 1-3 beginner's matches many times and it's always a success

That sounds like a great idea NoWuffo - if you want it formalised (ie event announcements in-game ) let me know when you're planning to start and I'll see what I can do. The main thing is that we get the word out that there are training options for those looking for them as I'm getting the distinct impression a lot of new players have no idea.

I'd like to organise a global training day with session running in each of the GoI time zones - GMT-5, GMT+1 and GMT+9/10 for this Wednesday

Show your interest here and don't forget to add your timeslot to make it easy to hook up with people.

Yeah see heres the thing...lot of long time players like myself, don't stop a match, take a newbie into sandbox, start up a new box all to explain something that takes maybe a minute tops.
If you don't feel you need to leave a live match for something that takes a minute tops, then you're probably not dealing with a newbie.

As a CA, most of the teaching I do is done within matches/lobbies, or over regional chat. I have brought people into Sandbox to teach them engineering tricks, but none of them were low enough in level to count for the achieve.

I suspect Gilder is in a similar situation.

To be clear I have been using sandboxes for training since well before there was an achievement for doing it, but it really isn't that hard to get if you do spend time with level 1-3 players. Who knows might even be a good time to start.

...And I cannot push more than 5 or so keys at once, or the keyboard becomes unresponsive.

I have to be really careful of this as well. For whatever reason (I've yet to do any intense research) I can't hold three keys and press a fourth usually. If I'm turning while trying to change altitude and talking to my crew (A+W+X) I usually can't change my throttle until I let go of one of the keys (usually chat). I think the same happens for map on Q if three keys are already pressed.

yes I get this too - what OS do you use?

The achievement is there to simply recognise a standard practice for long term players that had been going on since the beta - namely explaining to new players what the game is about.

Want to get this achievement? The next time you see a new player doing something that they could do better suggest they join you in a sandbox session. As Twinkie says 3 minutes here and there add up.

Just putting it in the context of a discussion Admrl Zill. Maybe it's just old time forum habits but I always quote people I'm discussing with for those that come after in the event there are multiple forks in a topic.

Squid has always been my love, after that any other ship depending on what works/enemies faced.
