Until which date can people apply?
I would love to participate in this event, but I haven't found a partner yet.

What happens when your partner decides to give up after a few rounds(/days) and you would like to go on. Is there a way of mixing up partners?


Thanks in advance!

Hey Yar,

You can apply at any point before the event ends.  That means until the 29th -edit- you can still join in.
You are free to play with anyone else signed up for the event, or sign a new partner up at any time.

Thanks for the quick response!
Thats good news.

That means until the 22nd you can still join in.

Since the event lasts till the 29nd, I think you ment 29nd, right? ;-)

Would be awsome if we could get some kind of a nametag, just for the event to show we've the best intentions to help the new players.
(Maybe something like the current WANTED, but then blue/dark green? Only showable in the novice matchchat/ingame)

Participants could give out store codes for an item like a hat to the winning team or everyone.

Hello everyone!

I do believe I can teach newcomers one thing or two, since I've already done this before, but I don't really have a teacher partner to go with me...

Is this forum suggesting a teaching tournament?

I am attempting to become a Community Ambassador in order to help individuals in the game.

If i am available, I will gladly participate.

I really don't care about items, teams, points, badge and so on, but I like to play with random people and/or be helpful.
Since I play on different times of the day and I won't be reliable as a partner, can I sign up alone and match up with any teacher that is online at the moment? No need about point and blah blah.
Also can I join novice matches/lobby alone as spectator?

I agree with Schwalbe on the teacher status. Something player can see just looking at your name like "community ambassador", so they can ask you question even ouside the teaching matches.
Otherwise, with a level 45 and the attitude to teach others, most of the time you'll be just a show off.
One way to do this could be create a teachers clan (that would make easier to know which teacher is online), but I understand that some of us don't want to leave their clan and this may not be an option.

Count me in! I'd love to show some landlubbers the ropes, lest they find the long drop on the other side ;)
I'll be talking to some of my fellow captains to see if they would like to sail with me to teach the greenleaves a thing or two.



If not, would anybody else like to fly with me  :P

I may be a little too experienced to sign up as a pupil, but... Am I allowed to join as one?  :P

Names are signed up. If partners are not found before the date, I will be assigning the singles together.

Unfortunately adding in a special color for names does require us to take down the master server, so we probably won't be doing that.

That would be too much for a single event, that is true  ;). Thank you for bringing that back up again.


I've finally found a teaching partner: Wolf One
We would like to participate in this event as a team.

I think it would be awsome to get a 3v3 or even a 4v4 match going on if we can get it off the ground. Anybody else up for this?
Feel free to message me during the event if you want to play a novice match with me.


Greetz!
