RESULTS - 1v1 Melee Tournament
It's that time again gentlemen. Another edition of Minden News.

As readers may know, last weekend we had the second regimental 1v1 Melee Tournament. I'm sure everyone will agree with me when I say there was some nail-bitingly close matches. I'm also sure everyone who was watching will have been amazed by the high level of melee skill in the tournament this time around. Noteworthy mentions go to the round fought between Acez v. Copperfield; and the final round Tachang v. Copperfield. There was some really extraordinary melee being played and I'm sure nobody will forget this tournament for awhile!
You can see the final table below:



Prizes have been given out and are as such:
• 1st place - Tachang awarded the rank of Guardsman!
• Most Improved Enlisted - Acez awarded the £10 Steam voucher

Congratulations to Tachang (who now holds the disgustingly beautiful rank of Sergeant Guardsman (Sgt.Gdm)) and Acez on their well deserved achievements!
Kudos to everyone else for participating, it's all good experience and some of you have made leaps and bounds since the last tournament. Keep practising and one day you might hold the coveted rank of Guardsman. We hope to see you attend the next tournament.

Holdfast Update: Expanded Battlefields & High Command DLC
The new Holdfast update is live! Contained in the new update are 8 new maps,, melee changes, new and improved cavalry controls and new gestures. Along with the free updates, there is a new paid DLC with 4 new officer skins and an infantry officer sword! Be sure to check out both the trailer for the update and the Steam store page for the paid DLC!

Napoleonic Artillery League & Artillery Showcase Video
The Napoleonic Artillery League is still ongoing and our Artillery Company boys have been making good progress with their matches. As they were top of the table in their group, they are now through to the final stages with one match to be played before they reach the semi-finals. Currently still in the running for the winners crown are the KRA, 21st, the 26th and the 8thLR. You can see the current fixtures on Challonge.

Our Artillery boys have done very well so far, but it's not over yet! Be sure to cheer them on during their upcoming matches!

Keeping with the Artillery theme, I want to share with you a video made by our very own VectorScope for the 51st Regiment of Foot YouTube channel.
It's excellently made and a fine display of the skill our artillery boys possess! So here it is, enjoy!

Trial NCOs & Recruitment
You may have noticed we have had an intake of new Trial NCOs. Although they are not strictly NCOs yet, they are distinguished with an asterisk (*) in TeamSpeak to set them apart from the ordinary rabble enlisted. We wish them the best of luck in their upcoming challenges.

To end the week, as always we'd like to thank everyone that has been spending time on public servers and recruiting. As you all know, more recruits means bigger and better events for us so we appreciate all the hard work the recruiters do each month. Huge thanks to all our donators and patrons on Patreon too, without you we couldn't function.

It was close, but our top recruiter for the month of August was Omerhaybo! Let me extend a huge thank you to omerhaybo, he has been putting in the work recruiting over the last few months. Be like Omer and get recruiting! We'll love you for it.

For all the new members, welcome to the regiment! Feel free to spend time in TeamSpeak and get to know everyone!

'The Command Tower'


Battle Cry of Freedom Alpha Test - Spaces still available! - FRIDAY 7TH AUGUST
Dear friends, another edition of the Minden News is upon us.

There is an upcoming alpha test for Battle Cry of Freedom, a linebattle-type game set during the American Civil War made by the same team who developed Napoleonic Wars for Mount & Blade: Warband! The regiment has been invited to partake and there are still spaces available to anyone who wishes to come along, help out the developers and try a game for free. For anyone interested, there is a small application process (which can be done in less than 30 seconds over Discord) and some requirements to be met. Please only apply if you are able to attend the playtest on Friday, as spaces are limited. Full details can be found in the tester-signup room on Discord.

To participate in the test, you must:
• Be able to attend the playtest on Friday 07th August at 20:00 CEST / 19:00 BST.
• Be at least 16 years old.
• Apply with the application template in the tester-signup room on the 51st Discord.
• Sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) once accepted as a tester.

The test will be happening on Friday 7th August, so be sure to sign up before the day. There will be a few of us playing so you won't be alone!

Applications for Light Company are now OPEN!
Clean your rifles and restock your musketballs. The wait is over and Light Company has finally launched and has opened it's gates to applicants!

Light Company will be used to delay, harass, or otherwise soften up enemy formations. To achieve these aims during events, Light Company members may be deployed as Rifles, Light Infantry or as a small, highly manoeuvrable line. As Lights will mostly be a vanguard unit, members will be required to have good skills in shooting and melee. In order for applicants to show they have these skills, there will be an evaluation divided into two parts for all applicants. The first part is a personal evaluation in melee and shooting. The second part will be as a trial member during line battles. Further details and a full list of requirements can be found in this forum thread.

Requirements are that you must:
• Hold the rank of Regular or above.
• Be competent at melee and shooting.
• Have excellent situational and spatial awareness.
• Have and use a microphone over TeamSpeak.
• Applicants can apply via this forum thread.

Surgeon Request
Would you like to perform battlefield surgery whilst dodging musket fire and cannonballs? Well you're in luck!
There is now a system which allows you to request the role of surgeon for our events. As there will be many people applying for this role, we have a waiting list which rotates every event so different people get to play as surgeon every event. This waiting list will allow as many different people to play as surgeon as possible. There are guidelines you must follow when you are chosen for surgeon for an event, these guidelines along with all further information can be found in the surgeon-signup room on Discord.

Requirements are that you must:
• Hold the rank of Private or above.
• Be ready and in TeamSpeak 5 minutes before the event start time.
• Adhere to the guidelines set out in the surgeon-request channel.
• Request to be surgeon via the surgeon-request channel on Discord.

New Friday NA Linebattle & Napoleonic Artillery League
We have a new NA event which we will be attending every Friday at 02:00 CEST / 8:00 PM EDT. It's a line only event, meaning there will be no cavalry, lights or artillery. Our NA events are usually a little bit more relaxed compared to our EU events but we still want a good display, so be sure to show up if you can! This change to the event schedule can be seen in the 'Current Schedule' section at the end of this article.

As many of you already know, our Artillery Company has been participating in Season 1 of the Napoleonic Artillery League (NAL), where they have been performing very well in the group stage. The current rankings show the 51st in second place in Group A, one point behind the group leaders. In any case, there will be a lot more upcoming matches where our Artillery boys will be showing off their skills. We wish them the best of luck!

To bring a close to the article, a friendly welcome to all those who have joined our ranks over the last few weeks. We play lots of different kinds of games on TeamSpeak outside of events too, so get stuck in!


Current Schedule:
Monday — Naval Battle — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
Tuesday — Siege — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
Wednesday — Training — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
