Mentor Application - I Hate Geese
I Hate Geese
Chris Mclean for marine and DN-U for Xeno.
Why do you want to become a Mentor?:
To help decrease the baldness of marines. In all seriousness though, helping new players get situated in the game is a good feeling, as I remember how lost I was when I first started playing CM and how helpful mentors and SEAs were to my learning. I want to be the guy to help the brand new SS13 player learn and hopefully stay in the community, and hopefully inspire him to help people in the future. The game is more fun if everyone isn’t struggling because they don’t understand how to play.
What gameplay areas do you know and which areas are you strong and weak in?:
Strongest in fire support, so mortar, CAS, OB, anything JTAC really. The first thing I learned to do was use the mortar back when there was no FTL or RTO and the combat engi was THE JTAC role, so it holds a very special place in my heart and is my most well-versed topic. Im very strong in marine medical, less so with shipside medical but I can still play nurse or doctor and deal with everything I get. FOB construction, getting power or comms up, all of that I am pretty experienced in as a true bravoid. I am experienced in CIC, knowing how to use overwatch and how to organize marines to shoot things. I am strong in intel, I played IO back when Defcon was a thing and was super happy they brought one of my favorite roles back. I can do req, I don’t know some of the crazy money-making tricks that come with a lot of time in req but I can make sure marines are supplied with what they need at any time. Pretty weak in MP-related stuff as I never really got around to playing them, but I understand marine law and what MPs do and how they do it. My biggest weakness with marines is research, I understand what they do but I never really got around to playing them in any major capacity, so my knowledge is limited to what I have read on the wiki and what I have seen as a doctor or IO. I understand Xeno fairly well, maybe not to the extent of my marine knowledge but I have played quite a bit on record and back before playtimes updated, around 2020. I understand each caste, their evolutions, their strains, and what they do for the Xenos. I have the least playtime in Xeno in the sentinel tree, personally, I like the slash marines up more than the spitting at marines, so I never really played them in any meaningful capacity. I have also dealt with most known technical issues, so I can help people with the usual issues that crop up.
How often are to able to play CM?:
2-3 hours on weekdays 4-5 weekends, depending on my schedule.

Anything else you’d like to add?:
I spent like an hour doing the OTHER mentor app back on the other forum only to realize it was the wrong place and having to make a new one.
P.S I’m always trying to expand my knowledge of this game and its roles, so please ask complex questions, it helps me become more knowledgable with CM.
