The Americas Army Mentor Program
What is the Mentor Program?
The Mentor Program is a program out there to help new, or older players, learn a map and more about the game. Basically we have one hour sessions where we go over a particular map and teach the ends and outs of how things go. Sessions are ran on the official Mentor servers and on the Mentor Teamspeak. We meet in the Mentor's IRC before hand to get everyone set up and ready to rock and roll.Will there be any sessions I can sign up for soon?
Currently Mentor sessions are every other Friday, to sign up and learn when the next session will be, visit the Americas Army forums and read the post here: http://forum.americasarmy.com/viewtopic.php?t=289631Hey, I know maps real well, can I become a mentor?
