Issue #28: Show Your Merit! [Update!]


Grenadiers - The Regiment's Finest! We open this week's Minden News with a special feature on an upcoming structural change within the regiment: The Grenadier Company will soon be established! With this, we plan to reward those of you who show the greatest skill and dedication. Thus, being accepted into this company will not happen automatically, as it does with King's and Queen's upon reaching the rank of Private. There will be a finite number (TBD) of spots in this company to emphasize the exclusiveness of this group. The rank of Grenadier (formerly Guardsman) can only be earned by being an enlisted member of Grenadier Company. This means that the highest enlisted rank for those outside of the Grenadiers will still be Fusilier.
Speaking of King's and Queen's Company - As much as we hate to disappoint the patriots among you, these two companies will be merged into Centre Company.
Do stay tuned as we plan to establish and open up Grenadier Company alongside the Melee Overhaul. Melee combat will be the primary skill we expect our Grenadiers to excel at and as such, we want the actual game mechanics to be as stable as possible to allow for accurate skill-based evaluation! Lastly, please note that the rank of Grenadier and with it a spot in Grenadier Company will, unlike other ranks, not be achieved and thereafter held indefinitely. We reserve the option to remove inactive Grenadiers and place them back into Centre Company so someone else may occupy their spot. Further details will follow!

NCO Applications to open up again! We always look for talent within the regiment. Just like we plan to reward extraordinary skill in melee and high activity with a prestigious spot in the upcoming Grenadier Company, we also offer up roles as Non-Commissioned Officers for those of you with knack for organisation or the skills to lead on the battlefield. NCOs are an invaluable asset to our officer corps and help out in many different ways. Maybe YOU can help the regiment as well?
Soon, we will reopen the NCO Application Thread (https://www.51stregiment.com/forum/index.php?topic=182.0) and give members ranked Regular or above the opportunity to become part of our NCO programme. Check the thread for all the details! We will provide you with the starting date as soon as we have one.
UPDATE! NCO Applications are now OPEN! Apply here! (https://www.51stregiment.com/forum/index.php?topic=182.msg5520;topicseen#new) Do so by the 15th of October to be considered. Further details will follow after the deadline.

To end this issue with, we would like to remind you that development of Holdfast is still going on, but much of it happens behind the scenes. Those of you who would like to get involved in testing new builds, features and such should let us know. Thank you for reading another issue of the Minden News™, YOUR official and reliable source of anything 51st!

I think there might be some interservice rivalry between the Fusilier Gang and the Grenadier Gang.

And its good to have our journalist back!

Think of it as shifting the pointless Kings vs Queens struggle toward a rivalry that actually makes sense - The virgin Fus vs the chad Gren.

You guys better be careful what you wish for. I mean, I'm just a simple Regular, but I know few very influential Fusiliers...
