I have just restarted mentoring again. Set my "member of mentees" to 10, got 2 very quickly, who both actually responded (rare!) and then...... NOTHING....

They both went inactive so
No "good mentor report
So no new mentees?

I don't know, but 2 in a few days and then none? That's all I can think of...

I think maybe I just won't bother with mentees having read all this. It's clearly not that worthwhile, and if players do their best and still don't get the badge points then I'm not sure why it's there.

I think that mentees aren't getting the rate your mentor message at all. I turned mentees off :(

Vira, really my only mentee who still talks to me, now is at about my weapon level. I have to say, I'm a little impressed and a little dissapointed.

I set mentees to 2.

i think its the magic number.

They get mentor review at level 5 i believe. not in a certain number of days.

Do you really want them to hand out even MORE free stuff to new players? In my opinion, the mentor/mentee process needs to be more interactive. Just a couple messages back and forth is next to no help in getting a new player interested and actually have the desire to continue playing. Onec they see that it's going to cost 66 mil to cap an airship, or 6 mil to cap a weapon in order to "play like the rest of us" they get demotivated. And with next to no way of really TEACHING them to make decent gold, it's almost wrong to expect many to continue playing after they download the app, get to level 2 then quit.

In my opinion, after 3 days inactive and again at 7 days inactive, PK needs to send a push notification nudging the player to check out the app again, and maybe remind them of the incentives to continue playing. It should always be one of perblue's best interests to work to retain new players as well as keep the current player base busy

My most active mentee says he never got asked to review me. This was confirmed by a dev. No review, so no payment and no badge point :(

Same here, my mentee is now level 17, quite active and happy to fill out the survey thing. But he hasn't gotten one. So why is there a badge I can't earn?

I think the amount of mentees needed for the badge needs to be DRASTICALLY. One or two mentees is sufficient.
