This is a neat concept. I would have put the mechanic upfront - 2v2s with the pro coaching the two noobs on his team. So much of FAF can't just be taught on the fly, or rather, you have to choose one thing to say because you can't tell them 50 things at once that they SHOULD be doing.

Very neat concept, I can't wait to see it.
