Minden News #48: Linebattles and Tournaments!
« on: February 17, 2021, 12:49:39 pm »



Issue #48: "Novum initium"





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!

Tournaments! Holdfast (Arty, Naval, Melee, Cav) and Rocket League
We have of a lot of tournament related news to get through so I'm going to jump right in

Upcoming tournaments:
Holdfast Artillery League Season 1:
Another Artillery Tournament has begun and our boys are participating following their amazing performance last tournament. Onlookers from last tournament will know it went down to the wire between the KRA and our arty boys last time, so the pressure is on for our arty crew to do defend their crown! More details to follow once the matches get underway. I think the reader will agree with me when I say that I have faith our lads will do us proud.

You can read more details and check the other groups by checking the tournament HAL Challonge link!

1stWA/23rd Naval Tournament
If you fancy yourself a seasoned seaman, you and your crew may be interested in this naval tournament! The 1stWA together with the 23rd and hosting a naval tournament next weekend on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th from 16:00-19:00 CET / 10:00-13:00 EDT.

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!

"Until, on Vinegar Hill, the final conclave.
Terraced thousands died, shaking scythes at cannon.
The hillside blushed, soaked in our broken wave.
They buried us without shroud or coffin
And in August the barley grew up out of the grave. "
