Issue #13: Straight from the Horse's Mouth

Got an Appetite for News? We may just have the thing for you: We have some hot facts regarding the next update, straight from the developers! After developing regimental/clan functions, the next focal point will be to complete the objective-based game mode we talked about for the past few weeks. And what's more, there will be further fine-tuning of the melee combat - Good news indeed.

This update should go live some time next week, but we will have the opportunity to try out a beta version in this week's Thursday Event! Feature attractions of this testing run will be the aforementioned features including the new game mode, as well as a new map made by Walki! Do not miss this chance to check out the new update before anyone else. As per usual, the Thursday Event will be at 20:00 CET.
Similar to previous betas we have had the privilege to test, this will be an opt-in version of the game, meaning you will receive a password to then gain access to the beta branch via Steam. The password will be given out during the event.

For more teasers and Holdfast-related news, be sure to follow the developers on Twitter. They may even be inclined to respond to questions you always wanted to ask them, or give valuable advise on life and love.

As mentioned, the Thursday Event will be at 20:00 CET. NA Training followed by the NA Linebattle is at 7:30 PM EST/EDT and we do encourage anyone who can make it to show up, even if you are European - While this is past midnight for you, the experience is said to be rather unique. The Saturday Public linebattle is at 20:00 CET. The Sunday Linebattle, as usual, will take place at 20:00 CET. Phew! That's the unlucky #13 out of the way. As always, stay tuned and continue to support the Minden News™! We will see you soon.

Issue #12: The Man in the High Castle

Come into my castle! But only you - In fact, this Thursday we will be capturing and defending forts in a Coastal Siege Event! As with previous Thursday events, this one will take place at 20:00 CET. Based on what we know, we will be fighting the 4th, as well as potentially another smaller regiment. This should be a welcome change of pace and an opportunity to practise naval warfare and to operate sea- and land-based artillery. Come and join in on the fun this Thursday at eight!

Keeping up with the Commands? As with language itself, our dictionary of commands is always considered subject-to-change. While we do have an impressive amount of fairly rigid standardised commands and terms, the actual implementation and use on the battlefield can change depending on the situation and, perhaps most importantly, based on the game's meta. We always strive to be on the cutting edge of effective maneuvering, whilst strictly adhering to the rules. As such, new commands and thus new ways to move about in formation are constantly being discovered, tested and evaluated by us. Those of you who have been at recent events and trainings will already have experienced some of our newest methods. In brief, we have started using more commands that focus on quick movement and deployment, best possible fire rates and more independence from the physical presence of commanding officers. With how things are now, we can precisely maneuver lines even without being at the helm.
Interested in how this plays out? Make sure to attend the Tuesday Trainings to always stay up-to-date with our current flavour of commanding. Also, it is never a bad idea to internalise our basic core commands, which you can always look up at your own convenience in the Recruit Guide.

As for events this week, there is the aforementioned Thursday Event, which will be a coastal siege happening at 20:00 CET. (Friday) NA Training followed by the NA Linebattle is at 7:30 PM EST/EDT and we do encourage anyone who can make it to show up, even if you are European - While this is past midnight for you, the experience is said to be rather unique. The Saturday Public Linebattle is at 20:00 CET. The Sunday Linebattle, as usual, will take place at 20:00 CET. That wraps up the 12th issue of the Minden News™! As always, we hope you enjoyed the read and continue to support the community by attending our events!

Issue #11: All Quiet on the Western Front

Things are quiet. Too quiet. Yes, it has been a slow week on the news side. Unfortunately, we can not report on some grand reveal or another every week. Of course, as we are aware, the Minden News™ is your go-to source of all matters of importance, we would not dream to keep you at bay with useless, poofed-up, drawn-out, redundant, regurgitated filler stories, oh no.

Sundays are back! Granted, Sundays have never been gone, but we hope you enjoyed going back to the classic linebattle formula. Experiments are nice to have, but a go-to staple to make use of is invaluable. If you would like to check out how this experimental event went, our official YouTube channel has just what you need! No Holdfast news have reached us this week, we suspect it is because the developers are rearing up for another big content update. While we have no ETA on this, we know of some things that will be added... You can also expect some iterations of new and improved game modes such as the oft-discussed Conquest mode, though this may take multiple patches to be completed. As always, stay tuned right here, as well as on the dev's official news page!

We want to get to know you! Whether you only just signed up to the regiment, or have been part of us for some time, we are always eager to socialise with all esteemed members of our community. The easiest way to do this is to hop on the Teamspeak and join in on the conversation - No need to be shy! On the same note, we would like to remind you that the Officers and NCOs are always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the regiment, past or future events or indeed any concerns you feel like addressing. Use Teamspeak, these forums, Steam or our Discord (yes, we have one). Come hang out, have a chat or even play some games other than Holdfast!

Of course, it would be a lie to state that nothing was happening this week. We do have NA Training on Friday at 7:30 PM EST/EDT plus the NA Linebattle at 8:00 PM EST/EDT. The Saturday Public linebattle happens at 20:00 CET. The Sunday Linebattle is at 20:00 CET. Right then, another week, another Minden News™ to hopefully brighten your day. We hope to see you all on the battlefield!

Issue #10: The Perfect Ten

Happy Jubilee to us! Ten issues of the Minden News, ten weeks of premium content, carefully curated and refined for your reading pleasure. We hope you enjoyed our wild ride together so far and continue doing so for all future installments! To celebrate the occasion, we received a graphical upgrade in the form of a fancy new headline, courtesy of OriginalHobo.

Since we are looking back, let us recap last week's Sunday Linebattle. As mentioned, we were using an experimental ruleset in order to add more depth to the match type. Three capture points were added to the map, this time represented by volunteers, and respawns were permitted. Lines still had to move and fight in formation and points were based on the amount of times the capture points were taken under control. Traditionally, linebattle events follow a simple deathmatch formula, with no respawns and the simple victory conditions of either wiping out the enemy team, or having the greater number of survivors at the end of a round. We look forward to try more CTF or Conquest style matches in the future, hopefully then as a properly implemented game type. We also ask you to appreciate that 'experimental' also means untested and potentially flawed. Expect improvements for future events and, of course, more events with traditional rules. In the meantime, let us know in this Strawpoll whether you prefer the old linebattles or the new CTF format.
Missed the event? Our resident field reporter Spunned was present, so expect a video soon on our official YouTube channel. Are you following yet?

The plans for the rest of this week: NA Training happens on Friday at 7:30 PM EST/EDT, followed by the NA Linebattle at 8:00 PM EST/EDT. The Saturday Public linebattle happens at 20:00 CET. The Sunday Linebattle, from what we know with standard rules, is at 20:00 CET. That is it for the 10th Edition of the Minden News™! We hope you enjoyed this early special edition. See you tonight for Tuesday Training at 20:00 CET!
