A beginner has immediate access to his physical surroundings, the pods and the game
image on the screen. These are these things he needs to blow others up. As players
become more knowledgeable about BattleTech, they become more familiar with other
structural aspects, such as codes of ethics and game rules. Although a novice player
might be exposed to the Pilot's Code, he wouldn't necessarily know how to use it. And

events are at the point where they have learned what behaviors are appropriate, such as
training new players, or what is inappropriate, such as killing easy targets (i.e., rookie
