Mentor system

2 posts in this topic

Since the thunderclap campaign got 100/100 by now,we can expect to get more new players soon.

This would be a nice opportunity to implement a mentor system,let me explain:

 

We have some veterans by now,who know a lot about the game.

It would be great if they share their knowledge with the newbies and welcome them to the game.

To encourage this,a veteran will be able to volunteer as a mentor,once he met the requirements(for example,having a certain league rank and/or a certain number of playtime/games played).

If a mentor doesnt log in for a while,he loses his mentor status,to assure that newbies dont end up with inactive mentors.

 

When a new player starts to play for the first time,he gets asked if he would like to get a mentor,who helps him to learn the basics of the game and give him useful tips.

If he accepts,he can either select a mentor from a list,or the game could just sugest 5 random mentors.

A mentor could also send someone a request,and ask him if he wants to be his student.

 

What are the advantages for both,the mentor,and the student?

The mentor could get access to certain achievements,depending on how many students he already had.

Also,there could be a rating system,so that students could rate the performance of their mentors,letting other newbies know,who does a good job and who doesnt,and the mentor himself,can feel good about being able to help new players :)

The student will be able to learn a lot about the game from his mentor and the mentor and the student,could both get rewards,depending on how well the turorship goes.

There could be missions like,,play x arena games with your mentor/student today'',and after 1-2 weeks,the mentor/student relationship ends,and both get rewards,based on how well they did+rewards for daily missions they do together.

Additionally,a mentor could show up on a ex-students profile later or a ex-student could show up on his former mentors profile....for nostalgic reasons^^

 

What has to be added for this to work?

-A mentor list.

-Mentor/student rewards.

-A reputation system(optional).

-A private chat for the mentor and his student.

-Mentors should be able to fill out a short description about themself,that shows up on the mentor list later.Like,if they focus on BR,invasions,what characters they know most about,what they intend to teach their students,what language they speak,and so on...

-Mentors could be able to have multiple students at the same time,if they have a high enough reputation(optional).

 

PS:Mentors have to be able to get rid of inactive students without a penalty,same goes for students.

Wow.. that sounds like a very interesting idea. We were planing to work on friends system with gifts, bonuses, etc.. and I think we should create a system which will cover both friends and mentors. Thank you for advice, when we finish a documentation about that, I'll share it with you to get your feedback before starting to implement it.
