I am also interested in these training games , I have played Civ since Civ I , but I have very little experience in multiplayer and teamers , so I would be very happy to participate!

REMINDER:

Today, Sunday, December 14th, I am going to try and organize a Ladder Training Game for ladder and non-ladder members.  Please if you are around the lobby around 4pm EST (10pm CET) join in.  We need a mix of noobs and experienced teamer players. 

Thanks, SPM

@AugusTIN2:

GameSpy had issues yesterday, access to the lobby was impossible. I'm sure SPM will try again next week :) .

If he does please don't schedule it at 22:00 CET on Sunday ... that would be 23:00 here and, you know, some of us work on Mondays.

Yes it was an unfortunate time for the game server to be down. We will keep trying.  I will publish a schedule soon with a few different times and dates.

Best, SPM

Just to update everyone, we were able to organize a 4v4 Ladder Teamer Training Game. We had a mix of experienced Ladder players, some new members, and some who aren't but might sign up now.

I will try to keep organizing these every Sunday, but please if you'd like to host one try it anytime. 

It would be really nice if some of the top 20 ranked players would dedicate a few hours to running one of these.  It would be a great investment in growing our community.  Send me an email if you're interested and I'd be glad to facilitate as requested.

A few suggestions based on experience.

1) Have at least 2 experenced players who want to teach and share knowledge and make each a team captain.  Don't use shuffle - you don't want all the noobs on one team. 

2) make the timer medium and tell people to hit pause if they need time to ask a question

3) otherwise use (and explain) the standard ladder settings like  CITY ELIM 2 or ALWAYS WAR.

4) some of the thing I think people needed help on and asked questions about were:  (a) placement of initial city, (b) build order, (c) tech order, (d) how to obtain combat odds, just to name a few.

5) discuss team strategy

6) teach them good manners, like waiting 10 min if someone drops, or saying gg.

7) Have fun with it.

Best, SPM

Hi SPM,

I'm glad that this worked out finally after some tries. As I've said to you on the lobby, I think this is a really good attempt at getting new players to become familiar with the league. Keep it up! :)

What's a good time for you? We can schedule them in advance to suit the availability of those who want to help.

Happy Holidays, SPM
