Of Squads and Men
Line hold, wheel toward the Minden News, go! That's right, we are back with another installment of the only regimental news that you need to be paying attention to! Another week, another step closer to the next Holdfast Update - Our sources state that another batch of content additions and balancing changes are very much imminent, so look forward to that. Further development is being done for the Hardcore mode and a certain Germanic Kingdom is ready to join the fray. Additionally, Holdfast will finally be available in many other languages thanks to the translation work of many members of the community, including yours truly.
Update: The teased update has just been released! Check out the full announcement here!
For this week's Sunday Linebattle, we are changing things up and will be experimenting with a few alternate rules and additions like artillery. We hope this will break the repetitiveness of the Event and allow attendees to experience the full spectrum of what Holdfast has to offer. For those of you who need their linebattle fix right now, we may just have the solution: Lean back and watch some spanking new content, either on our official YouTube (courtesy of Spunned), or perhaps on Carl Klinke's channel. Make sure to let the content creators know what you thought of their videos!
Ten-hut! The 51st Regiment exists in many time periods, not just the Napoleonic Wars. You may have heard that some of our members like to play the tactical modern military shooter Squad. We now also have our own game server running, check out all the details here! Feel free to join the action.
This week's events, as usual, are scheduled as follows: The NA Training will start 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 with altered rules will take place at 20:00 CET. That concludes the 9th issue of the Minden News™! As always, stay tuned for further updates and feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions you might have. See you on the battlefield!

Hardcore Media Moguls
Are you tough enough? Holdfast continues development through Early Access and following the last major patch, a Hardcore Mode is currently in the making. This mode will focus on optimal balance for organised linebattles, through a multitude of changes. There is no exhaustive changelog as of yet, but the 51st is taking part in testing this mode prior to its official launch, so make sure to stick around to get an early glimpse.
Missed a linebattle? Wondering how we did? Or perhaps you would simply like to re-live an epic, hard-fought victory of ours - This is possible by checking out the extensive video library of our very own Ferkison, who regularly streams our events as well as a selection of other games. Check out all the recordings here and think about following him if you enjoy the content.
Major Spunned has returned to us and with him our official YouTube channel! This is a prime source for nostalgia, with videos from our time in the Mount and Blade: Warband mod Napoleonic Wars. You can expect some well-edited Holdfast content on here soon, such as the video of the Saturday Public Linebattle from earlier this month. You can find all our videos here.
Since we are on the topic of being media savvy, we also freshened up our thread on the official Holdfast forums. Take a second to bask in all of its bbcode glory and join the discussion there.
In other regimental news, LCpl Walki is the newest recipient of the Cross of Valour 3rd Class! Staying level-headed under the pressure of having more than 160 pairs of eyes fixed upon him, he valiantly defeated multiple opponents at the end of a round, ensuring victory against all odds. We congratulate him and hope to see continued excellent performance.
Join our NA Training this Friday at 7:30 PM EST/EDT! As mentioned last week, we may attend a linebattle afterwards. Other than this, we hope to see you at the Saturday Public Linebattle at 20:00 CET and of course at the Sunday Linebattle at 20:00 CET. We hope you have a great week and bid you adieu until the next issue of the Minden News™.
