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 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! 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!

Issue #27: Rearranging our schedule and upcoming fun stuff - ADDENDUM

Monday       Tuesday       Wednesday       Thursday       Friday       Saturday       Sunday
20:00 CET20:00 CET20:00 CET
14:00 EST14:00 EST14:00 EST

Our new Holdfast schedule - In order to accommodate to everyone's precious available time we have decided to evenly space out our Holdfast events over the week. For the moment nothing much has changed, except the Thursday coastal siege we will not be attending presently. The other events on the schedule are your old familiars; the Tuesday training, the Friday linebattle event and the Sunday linebattle event. Everything at the usual times!

Napoleonic Wars - A ghost from the past? - A lot of our members wet their first bayonet in Mount & Blade Warband - Napoleonic Wars. We left after years of venerated status and we thought it would be great fun to revisit our old home from time to time. This Saturday (08/09) we will be attending the 33rd Saturday Event at the usual 20 CET. Everyone who is up for it is free to join!

Kick back and relax with the community - The 51st Regiment is not just about being yelled at for coughing in a linebattle or being shot in the head for facing the wrong way! Sometimes we decide to have fun. Watching a great (probably historical) movie together, playing fun games or even online boardgames are all on the table for our future community event nights. Again, we will be formalizing this in the future but we already want your ideas put on the table about which movies to watch, what games to play or any other activities we could do on such a night. Don't be shy to bring forward your idea! We also encourage everyone to actively join our TeamSpeak as we play other games already on a daily basis.

Issue #26: Don't I look great in black?

Prussia Trailer! You heard that right, Prussia is finally arriving! To share this grand bit of news with the rest of the world, Anvil Game Studios plan to release a trailer and you could be a part of it! The shooting is to take place tomorrow (Wednesday) at 21:00 CEST and will require an impressive amount of extras. The devs have asked for our help and would like to borrow our time for this, so if you think yourself photogenic and would like a chance to star in the game's official promotional material, be there tomorrow! Further announcements will be made via Steam and on Teamspeak. Of course, this also means that the 0.14 Beta continues to progress in development and the spanking new faction will join the fray sooner rather than later. Good times!

Buying some Cigarettes! Also, an announcement on our own behalf: We here at the Minden News managed to publish a great total of 26 issues as of today and for this we would like to once again thank you for reading our content! However, the frequency of new issues will decrease from now on, meaning there may not be a new issue each week. This is partly due to the lack of newsworthy content and because yours truly will be taking a short leave of absence. We will continue to report important developments as they reach us. Until we can return to our regular release schedule, we invite you to become intern journalists yourselves and share your freshest news with the rest of the community.

Events will of course happen as usual, starting with the filming for the trailer, hosted and moderated by the developers, on Wednesday at 21:00 CEST. Be sure to look your best and smile for the cameras. Our regular events for this week are on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 20:00 CEST. You can expect further Beta testing with the newest content. We would be repeating ourselves if we thanked you for your attention yet again, so instead let us take this moment to collectively pat ourselves on the backs. Go, us! Until the next issue of the Minden News™, we hope you have a great time and we will see you then!

Issue #25: The Beta's Beta!

Knock knock! Who's there? Why, it's more content for the version 0.14 Beta! For our Thursday Event this week at 20:00 CEST, we will have the chance to test the next batch of content. Destructible doors and uniquely named ships will make an appearance for a good old Coastal Siege! No longer will you need to guess which ship has the rest of your crew on it. Be sure to join in and get a first look at the new stuff.

Going Pro! You may remember the Holdfast Conquest League (HCL), a competitive 12 vs 12 "mini conquest" that focuses on individual skill with no artillery permitted and only one officer plus 11 regular bayonet infantry. The North American community already kicked this event off with a few pre-season matches, now the EU portion has also entered registrations! While we will do our best to collaborate with the host, we are still awaiting further information as to whether or not we will field an official, all-51st team. Regardless of whether or not this will be organised by the officers, you can already check out all the details HERE on the Holdfast forums. We previously asked you to voice your interest and potentially sign up, if you have not yet done so or would like to check out who has signed up so far, check out our thread here. Do stay tuned, we will give you further information as soon as it reaches us.

As for events this week, they are on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 20:00 CEST. The Thursday Event will be a Coastal Siege with some spicy new beta content. Thank you very much indeed for reading another issue of the Minden News™. We will see you on the battlefield!
