So what provides c-bills in the academy.

I note completing the basic training give 2.5mil and getting gold in the piloting thing gets 1.5 mil (500,000 for bronze etc)

anything else?

For now, no achievements or c-bill awards from Academy Challenges - it's for training and intrinsic, rather than extrinsic, rewards

Shoot the captain once gets you 100 c-bills. Keep shooting him until he shoots and kills you gives another 100 c-bills. Also each gives their own achievement.

Check the Achievements tab, under the Academy Challenges section (or whatever it's called). It'll list all the Achievements you can get, along with their attendant rewards.

I hope that as the Academy develops over time, each challenge course will eventually get its own achievement track. It'll help to make sure that most players run through everything at least once, with many of htem doing it until they hit Gold on every trial. This should boost overall quality of play, both for the players who run through the Academy and for anyone who drops on a team with them.

The best Reward the academy provides is Learning to play the game. Captain Adams is one of the best things that has happened in MWO imo. He has literally taken most of the training of new warriors off of our unit's veterans hands. Its even challenging and fun for the veterans themselves. I try to log in an hour each day in rapid fire and the gauntlet. :D

As far as I have tested... No... you technically never could, but you could break his AI a bit.

Oh, someone in the PTS forum showed a screenshot of him dead after getting an AC/40 to the cockpit.

You can destroy the visualization of him (the atlas) by shooting it. However, you're in a simulation, you can't kill the guy himself.

At one point you could kill the Veteran - there wasn't the code support to prevent it. Shouldn't be able to do so now (I should throw in an achievement just in case someone figures out a way... :-) )

At what point in the tutorial can you shoot the captain to get the achievement? I've "shot" him several times but not gotten it yet.

Once you're done with the basic tutorial and have access to the academy grounds for the additional challenges. Shooting at him there will net you the achievements.

Could the rewards readjusted a bit? 5,000,000 is too much.

Why? For regular players it is nice chunk of money for something which is "hopefully" already known. However for new players the training in the academy is really important to start out and learn how to control their mech, learn heat management, torso twisting and targeting (hopefully more to come). They have a real incentive to go learn the game with the 5 Million (and 200 Cbills dont forget) and will hopefully have a slightly better learning curve and reteintion rate if they know more or less what they should do ingame.

Dont forget also, this is a one off thing. You cant get 5 Million (and 200 Cbills) every time you go into the academy. Any subsequent visit is just to improve their skills, aiming, reflexes and so on.

I'd love to see achievements added for the Target Shooting and Gauntlet portions added at some point, similar to the Race challenge.

I'd like to see a "***** shooting" challenge for learning to shoot down UAVs too :) Or maybe a UAV added to the target challenge randomly on certain levels.

These could contain cbill bonuses as well, or maybe even GXP for the really difficult challenges.
