N.A.P. Relaunched (version 2.0)
The Noob Adoption Program (N.A.P.) is being relaunched with effect from 7th March 2014.
The aim is to match new players (noobs) with experienced players (vets) on a one to one basis.
This will give new players the opportunity to tap into the wealth of pvp experience to be found in Blue Republic and Red Federation.
Currently there are two options:
1. You (that is the veteran) can handle the matching yourself, or
2. I will do the matching.
If veterans choose to do the matching the process is as follows:
1. Contact the new player that you think can use your knowledge and experience
2. Then contact me so that I can update the roster.
If you would like me to do the matching then please send me a mail to that effect and I will send you your "pupil's" name.
You need to provide the following information on the thread:
1. Character name and corporation (Red or Blue).
2. The times you are online in gametime ie UTC.
3. Are you a noob looking for a mentor or a vet looking to mentor a noob.
Players may not get on (believe it or not this sometimes happens!).
If this is the case do not complain to me just request a new mentor or noob. It is not my role to settle disputes or complaints.
THINGS FOR VETERANS TO REMEMBER
Noobs are poor and pvp will be expensive for them at first. They may need a financial boost now and then and may have to take time out to make some ISK.
Utilize the RvB resources to teach your noob, for example arrange fights both solo and in fleet, contract ships and even events.
Direct experience is a thousand times better than reading wikis so try not to get them reading too much, although sometimes it maybe be necessary.
NOTE FOR NOOBS
Remember to ask questions no matter how stupid they may seem. Everyone has been on the journey you are starting out on.
Finally, this is a work in progress as far as I am concerned. If you have any suggestions or questions directly related to the N.A.P. program please feel free to Eve mail me with them.
However so that my brain doesn't fry keep them short and to the point.
Remember "DO IT TO THEM BEFORE THEY DO IT TO YOU"
