Issue #34: God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen



Seasons Greetings & Winding Down
Firstly, allow me to extend warm seasons greetings to all members of the regiment!
As it's almost Christmas, some events will be winding down for the next few weeks. As such, there have been changes to our event schedule. The Monday Naval is on hiatus for three weeks and will be returning the first Monday in January. The Tuesday Training & Siege event will be taking a break on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. Lastly, the Thursday Linebattle event will be skipping a week on 26/12/19 as it will fall on Saint Stephen's Day/Boxing Day.
Our current event schedule will be posted at the bottom of this edition of Minden News™.

Cavalry Update - "Now, Scots Greys! Now!"
For those of you who don't know, word on the street is that the cavalry update is at hand and should be dropping very soon™. For those who weren't there, our last Sunday event was played on the beta branch which featured the new cavalry classes. The general consensus was that cavalry classes are a refreshing addition to the game with great potential for linebattles. Let us know if you agree or disagree or what your thoughts on cavalry are!

Upcoming 1v1 Melee Tournament
Lance Corporal Tachang is organising (albeit, accidentally) the largest ever melee tournament in Holdfast to date.
Here are the details for those interested:

• 64-players total.
• Single Elimination (Knockout) Style.
• Commencing @ 4:00pm GMT on Sunday 22/12/19.
• Competed on 2 servers hosted by the 51st.
• Open to anyone wishing to participate.
• Only requirement is that you will need to be rated by Elf so you're on the EU tier chart.

Tournament Discord - https://discord.gg/rKPHTUr
Tournament sign-up - https://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/pSZaGzJ6dq

Currently, there's no prize pool but donations towards one are welcome.
One of the servers will be streamed on https://www.twitch.tv/bigmamba/ but a streamer is still being sought for the second server.
Anyone who wants further details or would like to donate or help stream the event - feel free to message Tachang!

New Blood & Recent Promotions
Lastly, we welcome all of our recent recruits, we're glad to have you on board! In addition, thank you to all of our recruiters, honourable mention goes to Grenadier HubblyBubbly. Do like HubblyBubbly and get recruiting! Service guarantees citizenship promotion! Speaking of promotions, congratulations to all who have received promotions in the interim since the last Minden News™ to now, well deserved.

I sadly could not make it to the event where the Beta Build was used. I do hope the cavalry update will help grow the numbers of players for Holdfast.
Merry Christmas to all of you fine lads!

Cavalry was interesting to behold, really. Easy to deal with too, provided you have the numbers to keep them away from you. They're more of a harassing factor than an actual threat.

Dealing with Cavalry is easy as well if they decide to close the gap for melee; simply stab the horse, forcing it to stop or die outright, then deal with the rider. Same shit as NW.

Other than that, good to see another Minden News out there. And well done on the Waterloo Charge reference.
