Issue #49: "New 51st Trailer Stunning the YouTube and Holdfast Community"

51st Regiment Trailer Out!

Our digital media expert Sergeant VectorScope prepared a brand new propaganda trailer for the regiment with many of our members getting roles. VectorScope was inspired to prepare a video with a storyboard concept, planning, and preparing scenes from all companies and events.

Here is a link the amazing video. The video had already gotten 1.7K hits. Be sure to like, comment, and subscribe!

As is known VectorScope previously improved the artworks of the regiment and designed the regiment's incredibly detailed uniforms, along with the new Cross of Valor and Distinguished Service medal designs. We avail this opportunity to thank Sergeant VectorScope for his digital content contribution to the 51st Regiment.

Changing Times Changing Schedule

I) Wednesday and Thursday Training/Event Swap
Most experienced members know that as surely as time flies, the event schedule changes. The next two news items are about the change in the event schedule.

Unfortunately one of the other bigger regiments decided to quit the Thursday's linebattle which left the hosts 3. Dywizja and 8. BDE in a position of not being able to balance our presence in their event. Therefore, the Thursday Linebattle is now replaced by a Thursday Training at 20:00 CET.

Instead, 51st Regiment is now attending a Wednesday Linebattle hosted by the 5th Prussian Foot Guards. The event schedule channel has been updated to reflect this change.

II) New Light Infantry-Only Event On the Schedule
The 51st has been joining the light infantry-only event hosted by 3. Dywizja for some weeks now at 20:00 CET. It was an invitational event for the first few weeks, then opened up to members with the rank of private and above, and is now open to every enlisted member of our regiment.

From March 14 onwards, it is an official event and part of the schedule. It will not count for attendance. You can try joining it if you are interested in joining the Light company or wondering what it would be like playing as a light infantry. We have won 4-0 three weeks in a row and we only lost one event out of the five times we have joined. So be there to contribute to the winning ways of the 51st.

The event is on Saturdays at 20:00 CET. Contact Corporal Omer Haybo about the details about this event. Check out the updated event schedule on Discord.

51st Wins A Friendly 1v1 Linebattle Against GDE

We faced the French Regiment GDE in a one-versus-one linebattle on February 17th. It was a special event with all special companies getting to play. Both regiments have negotiated to agree on a specific ruleset including the map rotations. 51st Regiment managed to win all the rounds.

The 51st is open to having one-versus-one linebattles in the future. We take this opportunity to thank GDE for co-organizing such a nice event.

The Renewed Grenadier Company

As you all know, we are very proud of our Grenadier Company. They came third in the last regimental groupfighting league and have won many tournaments, including the previous RGL.

Following the 3rd Internal 1v1 Tournament. The new Grenadier Company now consists of the following members:
Colour Sergeant Tachang, Lance Corporal Acez, Lance Corporal James Stukov, and Grenadiers CableFre, Dr.Gendalf, Gimli, Phelix, and RickDickBang. It is rumored that Regular Turtles, who was also invited to the Grenadier Company, instead chose to join Artillery Company.

Melee Sweats Back in Action: 51st won 15-12 Against QRR Moscow

Following the renewal of the Grenadier Company, on 27th February the 51st faced the QRR Moscow Grenadiers in a group fight. The Moscows were formerly a separate regiment and are now a company of the QRR. The 51st defeated the Russian melee sweats 15-12, with not only the melee powerhouses like James Stukov and Acez, but with the contributions of new faces like Dr.Gendalf, as well as Turtles during his short tenure in the Grenadiers.

Our proud grenadiers will fight against the AltPr11 on March 20.

Tachang and Stukov Honored

The two winners of 51st internal melee tournaments, both widely renowned not only as the best melee players of 51st Regiment but among the best in the entire Holdfast community, Lance Corporal James_Stukov and then-Sergeant Tachang were awarded Crosses of Valor for their heroic effort in the final round of the linebattle on February 28th, 2021.

The chief of the Grenadier Company Tachang and ex-retired melee sweat Stukov faced more then twenty men on their own. Despite the odds, they blocked first, and stabbed later. The whole regiment held their breath to finally exhale it after Tachang and Stukov slaying all their opponents. Thanks to them, we emerged victorious.

They were both awarded Cross of Valor. It was the final Cross of Valor Stukov missed but apparently Tachang's award cabinet was already full of medals. Our reporters approached James Stukov who was riding a horse towards the Tarkov City after the battle was over, who told us he was actually looking forward to getting the last Cross of Valor for a long time. Meanwhile, the recently promoted Colour Sergeant Tachang has been visiting the town centre regularly, looking for a new and larger award cupboard. The rumor is that he is upset from not being able to place his new medal somewhere at his home.

March Madness: Tournaments Section

51st members have been joining lots of competitive Holdfast tournaments. Here is the coverage of them.

Holdfast Artillery League Season 1
Our Artillery Company has won all the group stage matches in the first season of Holdfast Artillery League. We were placed in D Group, and won 3-1 against the GDE, 4-0 against the 26th, and 3-1 against the 93rd.

Artillery Company had previously already won the 1st Napoleonic Artillery League. The senior officer of the company Lieutenant Fortune did not comment much on the group stage matches and stated they are looking for the knockout stage of the tournament. Our boom-boomers will face TRR in the quarter finals.

As is known, the experieced lieutenant played a crucial role in the NAL victory against KRA in the finals. He is joined by another star, VectorScope. However, the team has new great enlisted cannoneers now: Epic_GlowzZ, Son, Too SexyForCS, DeathFromAbove, Turtles who deserted the Grenadier Company, and Z0mbrii, making the artillery squad stronger and deeper than ever.

We wish best of luck to our artillery company and the tournament can be followed from the following link: https://challonge.com/tr/HFArtyS1

51st Cavalry Company Runner-Up in 1st WA Major League!
The youngest company of 51st, Cavalry Company, added a new palmares to their tournament successes by ending the 1stWA Major League cavalry tournament as runner-up, losing only against the hosts 1st WA but defeating every other team in the process.

The tournament was hosted honoring the fifth anniversary of the Russian regiment 1WA. The tournament featured a double elimination format, and the second place match against 5th Prussian Foot Guards was stressful since one of the rounds had to replayed due to in-game bugs.

Congratulations to all cavalry company members. Check out the detailed results here.

HMS Alpha Club Advanced to the KO Stage in Naval Tournament
A naval tournament is being hosted by 1stWA and 23rd. There were three leagues and the 51st joined two of them, namely the 2-gunner league with 4-8 members on each team, and 13-gunner league with 8-18 members on each team. One of our teams, 51st | HMS Alpha Chub, has advanced from group stage. Said team features Fortune, Hunter, HubblyBubbly, Ecko, Gimli, and William. We wish best of them to them in the remaining rounds.
Rocket League Tournament
We do not only play Holdfast tournaments or Holdfast only in general. More games mean more time spent with the community. As is well known, there are lots of Rocket League aficionados in our regiment. The last tournament with a two-versus-two format was held on February 19. The team "About Face" (Colibri and Naimu) won that tournament. Runner-ups were "Garavalli" (VectorScope and DmO), while third place went to Omega and chazza. There were reports that Omega complained about the Rocket League config.

New Recruiters Emerging!

One of the most mentally exhausting but at the same time the most rewarding things to do for the regiment is recruiting on public servers while polishing your skills or chasing challenges. Recruiting is keeping the clan going since 2004.

Recruiting will help keep the regiment alive and allow us to have more men in the linebattle. This also means the chance to play with the specialized companies will increase. Therefore, if you are a member of special company but feeling that you cannot get enough of it, you can start recruiting. Check how to do it on the #recruitment-guide on Discord prepared by our trial NCOs.

A special mention goes to several of our members who has reached milestones in their recruitment work.
Kingsman Birch - 15 members
Kingsman dk.fr1908 - 10 members
Fusilier Orange Juice - 10 members
Regular Colibri - 5 members
Fusilier Ryofar - 5 members

All recruiters, remember Sergeant HubblyBubbly who brought in almost 250 people to the 51st!

Springtime 2021!
The time of new beginnings is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere. As such, now is the time start planting your seeds so you can reap the rewards later.
Statistically, February is the month where the majority of people give up on their New Years Resolutions, but I know that Minden News readers do not give up easily and I know that all of you are very studiously and steadfastly adhering to the promises you made for 2021. Isn't that right, readers?

51st vs. GDE Linebattle
I'm not sure if you have heard yet, but there's a linebattle tonight between the 51st and the GDE, a French regiment. It's regiment versus another with all support companies participating (Lights, Cav., Arty.). The GDE have told us they will be bringing about 60-65 men, so we'll need a good showing to match them. I'm sure it'll be a good linebattle and a lot of fun if nothing else! All those who can make it are strongly encouraged to attend, especially those in specialised companies. So be around or be square.

Wednesday, after training at 21:00 CET / 15:00 EDT.
• Ruleset is here!

Past tournament results
Internal 1v1 Melee Tournament
There's nothing like a good melee fest and the most recent melee 1v1 tournament went off with great success! There was some fantastic fights between participants, especially during the last few fights with some extraordinary talent being showcased. We've hosted a few of these tournaments now and we hope those who attended enjoyed participating or even just spectating the event. Even if you didn't do as well as you hoped, it's good experience and we hope you use this as an opportunity to improve your melee skills.

The winners are as follows:
• 1st/Guardsman - Lance Corporal James_Stukov
• 2nd - Lance Corporal Acez
• 3rd - Private Turtles

Once again, well done to all those who participated and especially to our winners. You can see the final standings by clicking the 1v1 Melee Challonge link!
Additionally, as you make know, this tournament will be used as an evaluation for potential Grenadiers so stay tuned to see who makes the cut.

1st WA Cavalry Tournament
We recently had two teams compete in the 1stWA Cav Tournament Major and Minor leagues. Our lads did very well with the Major team making it to the finals and coming in second place and the Minor team made it to the semi-finals and achieved third place. Our cavalry lads have been putting in the work over the last few months and the tournament results prove this with each team performing better than some longer established cavalry groups from other regiments. A huge well done to the lads and hopefully they use this opportunity to further improve their skills!

You can see the final standings of each league through their challonge links below:
1stWA Major League
1stWA Minor League

Donators and Recruitment
A huge thank you as always to our donators and recruiters, it's you who keep this regiment ticking over.

We run a number of servers that are used by the regiment, either for Holdfast or for other games we play with the community. If you wish to contribute towards the upkeep costs, you can do so by donating to the regiment via Patreon, where you receive certain benefits, or by donating to our PayPal via the website.

Recently our Discord has been server boosted to Level 3 which gives us a range of perks and benefits including, but not limited to, 1080p 60fps streaming (which is greatly appreciated by Movie Club), an increased upload limit of 100mb and a unique Discord URL, which will help with recruiting!

Speaking of recruiting, if you want to support the regiment in another way, you can do so by recruiting regularly on public servers. The more new recruits that we get allows us to field more men during linebattles, which in turn allows us to run more lines and utilise specialised companies.
More recruits = bigger and better linebattles!
