Issue #41: "Sol omnibus lucet"

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!

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.

Issue #40: "V"

D-Day 76 - "The sooner you people get off the beach, the sooner they'll stop this blasted shelling."
June 1944. Operation Neptune and associated airborne operations such as Operation Tonga and Operation Mallard sought to begin what would be Operation Overlord, or the invasion of Normandy. With the first British airborne troops landing just before midnight on the 5th, the majority of British and American airborne troops landed by parachute and glider in the very early morning on the 6th to capture bridges, towns and other strategic points ahead of the sea landings. The main seaborne fleet, made up of 80% Royal Navy vessels, 16% American and 4% other allies, had amassed at an area aptly named "Piccadilly Circus" south of the Isle of Wight early in the morning and steamed onwards on towards the French coastline.

At 05:00, HMS Warspite had the honour of firing the first rounds, the voice of her six 15-inch guns thundered with the aim of softening up the German defences for the landing force. After hours of aerial bombing and heavy naval bombardment, the Americans along with British support landed first at Utah Beach at 06:25. Americans with British, Canadian and Free French troops landed at Omaha Beach minutes later at 06:30. Followed less than an hour later at 07:25 with British and Free French forces landing at Sword Beach where they met the only Panzer Division resistance of the Normandy landings. British forces landed less than ten minutes later at 07:35 at Gold and finally the Canadians and British landed at Juno Beach at 07:55.

It was the largest amphibious assault ever seen with and paved the way for the invasion into Fortress Europe.
The Channel may have stopped Hitler's plans for Britain in 1940, but it didn't stop Britain and her Allies in 1944.

RESULTS - 1v1 Melee Tournament!
On a lighter note, the melee 1v1 internal melee tournament went ahead and it was a huge success. A huge well done to everyone who participated, it was a commendable effort by all. Hopefully all who took part enjoyed it. Honourable mention goes to Grenadier Company. Their reputation precedes itself, Gren. Coy. members were on top form and they performed very well.

Particular congratulations and felicitations go to the three big winners of the tournament:

• 1st place/Overall winner - Guardsman James_Stukov - Awarded Guardsman rank
• Most Improved Enlisted - Grenadier Acez - £10 Steam voucher
• Overall good performance - Grenadier dengland777 - Invited to Grenadier Company

Regardless of how well you did in the final result, we hope you enjoyed the tournament and hopefully you took away something to improve on for next time a tournament comes along.

Upcoming Rocket League 1v1 Tournament!
Lance Corporal Seaside, Lance Corporal VectorScope and Regular Ecko have been devising and organising a 1v1 tournament in Rocket League. The tournament will take place a week from now on Saturday 13th June at 19:00 BST/20:00 CEST. It will be in the style of a double elimination 1v1, meaning if you lose your first match, you'll get another attempt to prove your worth before being knocked out fully. There's a prize for the 1st place winner of a Heatwave skin for Rocket League worth ~€20. More prizes will be added for 2nd and 3rd place when more participants sign up.

To summarise:
• Tournament takes place on Saturday 13th June at 19:00 BST/20:00 CEST
• 1v1 double elimination style tournament.
• Prize for 1st place, with more prizes being added as more join the tournament.
• Open to anyone, no criteria.
• Sign up via the challonge link here.

Any further questions about the tournament can be directed towards either Seaside or VectorScope.

Recruitment & new TeamSpeak badges!
A big thank you to all the recent recruiting efforts by all. We appreciate any and all new recruits that enter our ranks. To show our appreciation for efforts made by our top recruiters, we will be introducing TeamSpeak badges for the top three recruiters for each month.

The top three recruiters (by number of recruited members) for the month of May are as follows:

Lance Corporal HubblyBubbly: 9 recruits
Lance Corporal VectorScope: 8 recruits
Regular George: 4 recruits

Do like our top recruiters and get recruiting! More recruits means bigger and better events!

Modding Support and 51st Uniforms
Modding support for Holdfast has been added in a recent update. This will make for more varied gameplay with hopefully new linebattle, siege and naval maps being added for use in events down the line, as seen with the Helm's Deep map on our Siege event on Tuesday. Modding support allows us to create custom mods for the regiment such as uniforms and colours. Progress on our 51st Regiment of Foot uniforms is coming along nicely as you can see in the teaser image provided by VectorScope on the left of this article. A mod for our own 51st Regimental Colours is also in the works and you may be seeing it soon.

If anyone is inclined to work on mods, feel free! More mods means more variation and makes for interesting gameplay!

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
Saturday — Linebattle — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
Saturday — NA Linebattle — 2:00 CEST / 8:00 PM EDT
