Whilst we have a great tutorial and our Community is creating awesome guides, there is no substitute for having somebody talk you through the game in person and coach you on how to play better.
J0k3se, now one of our moderators, has set up a coaching program which has helped a fair number of people massively, and created some excellent videos too, so we at Abrakam would like to help with this too.
Here’s how it works:
The program will work in two week cycles. At the start of each cycle the latest group of students will each be paired with a coach, who will agree a day and time that they can both meet up for the session. Each session would be at least 2 hours in total (either 2 one hour sessions or 1 two hour session). The sessions would generally consist of the student playing either games against the AI or in Battle Mode, whichever they choose, and would cover one or more of the following aspects of Faeria:
- Deck idea/building
- Land placement
- When to use what on the action-wheel
- When to trade/clear
After the session, each student will have ‘Graduated’ and will receive a free booster pack. Ideally, the session would either be recorded or streamed so that others can learn from the same advice. If you’d rather not be recorded/streamed, then make sure to let the Mentor know.
If you would like to apply as a student then please include the following details in your reply to this post:
Faeria Experience: (just a sentence or two about what you have done in Faeria so far. When did you join etc.)
Regular Online Hours: (In GMT preferably to make their math easy)
What do you hope to get out of the coaching program?: (They’ll try to match your specific interest with the skills of the coach. If you say you want to become a better deck builder, they’ll try to pair you with someone who is known for deck building)
Current Deck: (They’ll try and match you with a coach who is known for what you are playing right now)
If you would like to apply as a Coach then please include the following details in your reply to this post:
Regular online hours: (Preferably in GMT)
Time Zone: (So they can match you with students in the same time zone)
Speciality: (Do you prefer Red, Green, Deck Building, Pandora, etc. This is purely so they can better match mentors and students)
Rating: (This is just to roughly show your level of skill. they’d prefer users with god ranking)
References: (This is only important if you have a low rating/are unranked. It’s just so I can ask around a bit and ensure you would be a quality coach)
A couple sentences about why you would make a good mentor: (why did you apply? What can you offer the program?)
Thank you for reading this and, hopefully, with enough students they can organise a graduate tournament to help students learn how to compete too.
