This week is going to be a big one for Boot Camp advertisement. The guest blog should be coming out Tomorrow on the STO site and on startrek.com on Friday/Saturday. The fine folks at Priority One have also featured Boot Camp in the 'Blank of the Week" If you haven't heard the episode, check it out here.
The Boot Camp website is also developing. Once the guest blog goes live this week, people can begin to register for the first event on December 29th. Please direct all registration questions to the Boot Camp website. If you haven't already seen the website, and the incredible video that drkfrontiers has made, please check it out here. Fleet admirals. Please post this on your own websites if possible.
Request: There are a number of ways we can gain greater exposure. I have renamed a few of my ships to include the words, "PvP Boot Camp." I would encourage you to do something like this. It is a weird ship name and has, for this reason, caused people to ask about it and about Boot Camp more generally.
REQUEST! (PLEASE READ ME!): I would also suggest that we as coaches begin advertising for Boot Camp in the ques. For example, I would like to make a keybind that I can hit at the end of a match with the following: "Want to take your PvP skills to the next level? Check out Boot Camp: http://pvp-boot.camp.shivtr.com/." I am planning to use this at the end of my PvP and PvE matches. I would encourage you to do something similar. I will probably also just send out this message every once in a while in Zone chat. In this regard, I do have one request. Would somebody be willing to respond to this thread with instructions on how to make a keybind like this? I know how to make keybinds for BOFF skills and for "Target X," but have never made one with a message. A clear set of instructions might encourage some of us to use this advertising tool.
Boot Camp is moving forward on every front. Cryptic/PWE has approved a set of rewards for the participants and even some rewards for coaches, which is cool. All of you who help out with coaching will be receiving a special title and a free respec token. I for one won't mind having another respec token and the title is very cool as well--more advertisement.
Coaches, we will have a meeting around the 21st of December to discuss a wide range of issues. I look forward to talking with all of you then.
As always, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or respond to this thread with questions/concerns. Thank you all so much for your creativity, hard work, and interest in PvP.
Anyway, i'll stick it on LAG's site and rename my ship.
Thanks, Aquitaine. I have you down on the Boot Camp website as a coach rank. You should be able to see this by checking your status. Please just confirm for me your @handle ingame. Is it @aquitaine? Thanks!
I also just registered on the site @mrgrocer. I have been pvping since beta, took a long break and slowly getting back into the swing of the things. I know I am definitely not coach material but would like to help this project in any way that I can, as STO is the only game I have ever became a serious pvper in. I am not very vocal on OPvP but lurk a lot and try to talk to some of our better players after facing them to learn some more tips.
Please let me know anything I can do to help this great project!
