Issue #42: "Vita dum superest, bene est."



'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
Thursday — Linebattle — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
Friday — Game Night — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT

That concludes the August edition of the Minden News.

Issue #41: "Sol omnibus lucet"





Donations!
Hello one and all, and welcome to the newest edition of Minden News.

We are once again asking for your financial support. Server upkeep is not free and we run quite a few servers for the regiment. It costs a great deal each month to host all of our game servers, the forum, and TeamSpeak. The regiment runs solely off donations and any support is greatly appreciated. Our Patreon patrons receive special benefits, a full list of which may be found on our Patreon page. Our donation links can be found below:

Patreon - *Patrons receive special benefits!
PayPal

Please consider donating to the regiment, we would very much appreciate it.

New Regiment Registry
The most recent Holdfast update has introduced a regiment registry to the game, this means you can sign up and be listed as a member of of a regiment via the main menu. As such, if you have not already done so, sign up to the 51st Regiment of Foot as soon as possible!

Another feature included in this update is regiment levelling and regiment leaderboards. This means the more our members play on public servers, the more XP we accrue over time and the higher we get on the leaderboards! So get playing on public servers and boost our XP and popularity!

Updated Event Schedule
For those of you who don't already know, our current schedule of events has changed slightly.

Game Night has switched from Saturday to Friday and we now have two linebattle events every Saturday. Friday Game Night and the first Saturday linebattle begin at the standard time of 20:00 CEST / 2:00 EDT. Whereas, the second Saturday linebattle is a NA event and begins at 02:00 CEST / 8:00 PM EDT. Everyone is welcome and attendance is encouraged!

These changes to the event schedule are reflected in the 'Current Schedule' section at the end of this article.

Rollout of New Uniforms!
Just a small update on the status of our custom uniforms. As many of you already know, our new uniforms have been steadily rolling out and undergoing minute changes over the last week or so. The current line infantry and NCO skins are now fully completed. In addition, the Officer class is now mostly complete but has been undergoing small changes. However, it doesn't end there, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more custom content appearing in the near future.

Supporting the Regiment & New Recruits
We appreciate all the extra work and help our members put in for the clan, whether that consists of recruiting members, donating to the clan or creating guides for mods for everyone to use.

Congratulations are in order for Corporal VectorScope, who recently has been putting in phenomenal work for the regiment and was recently promoted for his efforts. More members who received noteworthy promotions recently are Chosen Man Maximo 420, who is now our first and currently only Chosen Man in the regiment, Lieutenant Jamster, who has been a core member for a few years now, and Kingsman Average, who only joined earlier this year but has been regularly attending events. All of these people have been putting plenty of time and effort into the regiment since they joined. Congratulations to all mentioned, well deserved!
Remember, hard work and commitment is recognised and rewarded!

Lastly, I would like to extend cordial greetings to all of our new recruits and privates that have joined us recently!
Be sure to get to know everyone by attending events, playing other games with us, or just spending some time chatting on TeamSpeak or Discord.
