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!

Issue #24: The Test Gates Stand Open!

The Beta is here! All of you now have the chance to try out the new version 0.14 before it goes live! The Beta version of this patch features little of the upcoming content, but more significantly the new game engine Unity 2017. As we elaborated in past issues, this engine will allow the developers to delve much deeper into their code to tweak and adjust the game's most sensitive mechanics, at its forefront the oft criticised melee combat. But not all the current changes are invisible, as you can now check out two new maps: Linburg and Black Forest! The not yet fully functional overhauled spawn menu has also already made it into the game. A well-designed UI is a crucial part of any game and often goes unappreciated, so we are happy to see further work put into this.

Where my Prussians at? Prussia is still being developed and have not yet made their debut in the game. The current beta of version 0.14 should be understood as the foundation upon which the more significant changes and additions will be built on. We hope the engine transition went smoothly did not unearth a hive of new bugs. The successful implementation of the new faction and the much anticipated melee overhaul may well be directly tied to the game's success and longevity, but for now we must all simply be patient.

How do I opt in? Like with previous betas, simply right click your game in your Steam library, select Properties and navigate to the BETAS tab. Here, select Beta - from the dropdown menu and close the window. A download of about 2.5 GB should kick in and your game will have the [beta] tag.

As per usual, we have events on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 20:00 CEST. Any changes to the events or alternate times will be announced by our Steam group. Again, we thank you for reading this week's issue of the Minden News™. Hopefully, we can soon provide you with even more information regarding the upcoming content for the game. Until then, check out the most current dev blog to read all about this beta in greater detail!

Issue #23: What's New, Prussiacat?

Finishing Touches! Last Sunday brought us another dev blog post by the developers. Most notably, this article reveals the release date for the upcoming beta version of the new update: Next week! Get ready, because we will of course be part of the testing. Other than that, there is little in the way of brand new stuff and more of the old 'We are still working hard on everything', but a few snippets of previously unknown can be extracted. For one, a look one of the more colourful prussian regiments - The Riflemen (likely Silesian jaegers)! Also, further details about destruction and interactables. Doors will soon be able to open and close, as well as be smashed down by melee attacks (once out of beta). For siege-type game modes, some doors may only be opened if your faction controls the nearby capture point. We may also still look forward to a variety of new maps across multiple game modes.
Check out the entire post here!

Sunday Feedback As we first mentioned a few weeks back, we currently participate in a community-hosted event for our Sunday Linebattles as opposed to hosting it ourselves. We can unfortunately not give you further information regarding the permanency of this circumstance, but for however long this should last, we may as well make the most of it. To this end, we kindly ask for your feedback on the current rule set. Please post your suggestions, gripes or any sort of comment in this thread by Jamster. Let us do our best to try and help improve this event not just for ourselves, but for all the participants!

And these are your events for this week: Tuesday Training is TONIGHT at 20:00 CEST. The Thursday Event is at 20:00 CEST. We may be forming a skirmisher detachment for the Friday Spanish Linebattle, keep your eyes on our Steam announcements for this. The Saturday Public Linebattle is at 20:00 CEST and the Sunday Linebattle happens at 20:00 CEST. Your faithful Minden News™ staff bids you adieu for another week. Leave your thoughts below and then kindly head over to the Sunday feedback thread!

Issue #22: With a Musket on his Shoulder and Roses in his Hair

History Lesson! Whether you have been with us for a long time of you only recently joined up, you may or may not have heard little bits of history about the actual British regiment we chose to be our namesake. One name you will hear being mentioned a lot is Minden, though this is not a name but rather a city. A humble city at that, with just over 80.000 inhabitants and situated west of Hanover, Germany. In 1759 however, its outskirts became a battlefield for one of the most decisive clashes of the Seven Years' War. This war saw the alliance of Great Britain, including Portugal, Prussia and Hanover fight against the then Kingdom of France under Louis XV, with Austria, Russia, Spain and Sweden on their side. Like many other wars involving European great powers, the Seven Years' War was caused by rising tensions over territorial claims and the following cascade of alliances. Much of this would later be mirrored in the Napoleonic Wars. Come, and stay for a while we tell you the Story of Minden.
The Battle of Minden took place during the height of this conflict, following a repeated back-and-forth struggle for Hanover. The engagement ended in a victory for Great Britain and their German allies, which was a surprising result for all sides. Outnumbered in manpower and faced with the formidable threat of the French cavalry on the open field, Team Anglo-Germany had to be cautious. Indeed, the French made good use of their cavalry, launching it into continuous charges while protecting it in the crossfire of their own artillery.
The battle was not going well for the Brits and they signaled for retreat, though this order was famously mistaken for a fire and advance straight into the French horsemen. The British brigade, including the 51st marched onward, not fazed by musket or cannon fire, pausing only to deliver volleys of their own. The fact that morale did not break despite the fierce barrage took the French by surprise and caused them to rout from the battlefield. The iron will and guts displayed by the regiments who were part of the fearless advance immortalised them within history. After the battle, they took the title of Minden to commemorate their valour.
Minden Day is celebrated by the successors of these historical regiments to this day, every year on August 1st - The day of the Battle of Minden. Soldiers wear roses in their hats to pay homage to the soldiers who picked roses in the Dutch and German lowlands that reminded them of home and wore them on their shakos, or so the story goes.

Well, after that trip to memory lane, let us take a look at this week's going-ons. As per usual, we have events on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 20:00 CEST, with possibly further regional events such as the Friday Linebattle. Make sure you are part of our Steam Community group, where you will receive timely notifications on any and all events happening! Thank you very much indeed for reading another issue of the Minden News™, this time with fewer news and more educational content! If you would like to hear the Minden tale retold authentically, just ask Stalker for story time!
