- You need to have a VIP status in order to test the learning speed accurately. Check below for non-VIP possibility.
- Install Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox (there are similar add-ons for other browsers but there are reports that they might not work properly for everyone): https://addons.mozil...n/greasemonkey/
- Install TycoonTools Greasemonkey scripts (Only Skill Snapshot Stat Extractor is needed for this, but other might come handy also): http://widing.arkku.net/tycoontools/
- Your fighter needs to have some secondary skill where you didn't assign any points in fighter creation and which you have not trained at all (remember that for example training clinchwork will give small gains to elbows also etc). Assign your fighter to train that skill in 1on1 training session with Elite coach. Make sure your fighter have 100% energy and morale.
- After training, go to Fighter skills snapshot page (http://www.mmatycoon...atssnapshot.php), select the skill in question and if you have appropriate Greasemonkey scripts installed and enabled, you should see a numeric value under the skill snapshot bar. This value is the current skill level of your fighter in that skill.
- Skills where you did not assign any points at fighter creation start at 1.95. It is believed that the maximum skill value you can have after one training session is 7.5 (useless++). Lowest value I have encountered is 3.9, but my guesstimate would be 3.5 for lower limit. Depending on your preferences, you could think that fighters with learning speed under 5 (useless-) are not good enough (some people use 4.5 and other 5.5 etc), unless other hiddens of that fighter are very good. Unless the learning speed is very low, like under 4, I would still test the fighting abilities of everybody (i.e. see how they perform in few QFC's and what does their ToTT say) before sacking them.
- Note that above values are for 18 year old (or younger), for older fighters you should expect smaller values, although I do not have experience to tell how much is good enough for example 25 year olds. And also, if you have only 2on1 training available, that shouldn't make huge difference, so you still get good approximation of the learning speed that way. And if you have already trained the skill little (say the skill value is 2.5), you can still compute the difference (new value - old value) and see how much that is compared to maximum gain of 5.55, but note that with high level skills the learning speed decreases.
For non-VIPs there is an approximate method for determining the learning speed: The pop from useless to abysmal in two sessions, is combined gain of 8.05 points, ie. over 4 points on one session. That would equal learning speed at least 1.95->6, which is rather good. If the fighter doesn't pop even in three sessions, he is a very slow learner. Between that, depends how tight criterias you have.
Learning speed is constant from until fighter hits the age of 18, and after that it declines gradually when your fighters age.
For 25 year olds (or 19-24 for that matter) there's not public information available about range of learning speed. I've heard somebody had learning speed of 7 as 25 year old but I doubt it. If anybody makes 25 year olds and wants to share what kind of learning speeds they have gotten, please let me know and I'll add the range here.
