Issue #43: "Usus est magister optimus."





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!
