There shouldn't be any new player that signs up, that doesn't go through the Mentor program.
It doesn't matter what part of the Game that new players are looking to play.(Jockey,Bettor,Trainer).
Initial success is the key on retaining players.
I know of a lot of players who started out without a Mentor, including myself, and the record speaks for itself.
You waste a lot of points when you don't know what's going on.
However, since there is a Class System in all tournaments (Jockey,Bettor,Trainer) it's a lot easier. But based upon Newb threads, obviously most new players need some help.
We need to promote the Mentor program more!
I believe we lose a lot of players because they simply don't understand how to play.
Should the Mentor program be mandatory?
What can be done? Any ideas?
