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!

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!

Good Things to Come

Has it been a month already? Yes, we are already more than 36 days into 2018 and things are looking interesting. Holdfast is continuing its development and besides additional content you can expect further balance fine-tuning as well as improvements to performance and stability. The big community events we attend and/or host are very much intended as testing grounds to really take the game to its limits, thereby helping out the developers in their quest to polish their game before its full release.
Likewise, our regimental calendar is as full as ever! Besides the usual suspects, we will also take part in the North American Linebattle on Fridays immediately following training. While this happens at a very late time for Europeans, we recommend checking it out if you do find the time. Believe it or not, the NA Linebattle is an even bigger event than the Sunday Linebattle! Come join if you think you are tough enough.

No news on the medal front this week, but it does give us the opportunity to shine a spotlight on our collective performance in past events. We are very proud of all our enlisted members, who help us continuously excel in the Sunday Linebattle events, as well as show our great community off to the rest of the playerbase in the Saturday Public event. If you have only recently joined us - Stick around and find out why we have been doing this for more than 14 years now. If you are a regular - Keep on shining bright!

For your convenience, here are our upcoming events: The NA Training will start on Friday at 7:30 PM EST/EDT, with the NA Linebattle following immediately after at 8:00 PM EST/EDT. Dress sharply and get a nice, close shave for the Saturday Public Linebattle at 20:00 CET, where we bring our finely honed tactics into an unpredictable environment that is, as the name suggests, open to the public! As always, do not miss the "big one", either! The Sunday Linebattle happens at 20:00 CET. Come join us at some or even all of these! Until then, that has been the Minden News™, your prime source of regimental news and the only source you should trust. Have a great week!

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™.
