The idea recently came up through some discussion that people would be interested in starting a Netrunner Mentor program. The general idea behind the program is that we would pair up experienced players with players that are looking to improve and they would play a few sessions “over the shoulder” using screenshare on OCTGN or Jinteki.net. The program can range from beginners trying to learn basic strategy, lower intermediate players that want to improve, or people who want to improve in a specific deck (PPVP Kate, Noise, CI shutdown). On the mentor side, we have no official qualifications, if you feel comfortable mentoring someone, feel free to sign up as a mentor.
It’ll be up to you and your partner to decide how you want to organize your sessions, but I’m thinking 3 sessions of at least 1 game on each side would be a good starting point. If you really like your partner and want to do more, great! After about 1 week of this post being up, we’ll PM pairings to a partnership, probably also post a master list here, letting y’all know you’re partners. From then, you can talk with them to get some times nailed down.
To sign up, make a post with the following info
Role: Are you wanting to be a mentor or a mentee?
Time zone: we want to get people that area awake at the same time paired w/ each other
Able to use Voice Chat?: Yes/No
Area where you think you need to improve or area where you think you have some particular expertise: This area depends on if you want to be a mentor or mentee. Are you trying really hard to get good w/ Noise? We’ll try and get you paired up with a great Noise player, etc.
Some good ways to screenshare, pick between them with your mentor/mentee:
