MM Russia3 Hosted Event [Next Event 2/11/13]
« on: January 21, 2013, 06:11:43 pm »

Welcome back, Mount and Musket! We wish to play you again, your holiness!



Thanks to a most successful event on Monday, the 28th of January, we now established a permanent, yet unofficial, line battle event for Mount and Musket. Let the Nostalgia commence. We now have our own two-hundred slot server (MM_Official_US)! However, until we can figure out if the server is stable enough for line battles, and we get enough controls and settings ready, we will be using the Rddt_MM_Server for the events. A special thanks to Rddt Brigade for doing this and making our events happen. The events are on Mondays (Dates will be listed) at 8pm Eastern. The event will start with a fifteen minute pre-battle training for pubs, and for other regiments that need the time. The first map change will be a random large map around 8:15pm Eastern. Maps and rounds are determined based on attendance. The smaller the attendance, the more maps.



Rules of the Event

Some changes are taking effect, since our first event was more or less a test run. Here is the new set of rules for the event:

Line Infantry
  • Line Infantry will not be allowed to fire out of formation. In order to fire, the Line regiment must be in a line.
  • Line Infantry are allowed a spacing of no more than one man.
  • If only three players are left in a unit, they have the option to charge, retreat to the guns, assuming they are still operational, or to a nearby line.
          Light Infantry
  • Light Infantry will be allowed to fire out of formation.
  • Light Infantry are allowed a spacing of no more than five men.
  • Light Infantry require a minimum of four men, and a maximum of twelve men.
  • Light Infantry are allowed to use anything for cover and are allowed to crouch.
  • If only two players are left in a unit, they have the option to charge, retreat to the guns, assuming they are still operational, or to a nearby line.
          Cavalry
  • Dragoons are allowed to shoot from horseback. However, they must be in a line. No "Drive-by's."
  • General Cavalry requires a minimum of eight men, and a maximum of sixteen men.
  • Lancer Cavalry are allowed a maximum of twelve men.
  • If only two players are left in a unit, they have the option to charge, retreat to the guns, assuming they are still operational, or to a nearby line.
  • If only one Cavalryman is left in a unit, he is permitted to fight as such as long as he is within a general vicinity of his allies.
          Artillery
  • Artillery are allowed a maximum of two guns. Crew sizes are totally up to the regiment playing as artillery
  • Artillery are allowed a maximum of eight guardsmen, of which are allowed to act as Light Infantry, as long as they stay close to the cannons.
  • Artillery Guardsmen are allowed to leave their guns as long as they are in a line similar to that of Line Infantry.

No, because it's not an NW event. It's a community event.

And, indeed, y'all are.

Event Guidelines:
Since I’m the one who has organized this event, I feel it is my responsibility, as well as my privilege, to create the guidelines for this event. In the spirit of the old MM community, which was, generally lighthearted, slightly comical, always exciting, innovative, and which had a tinge of glory to it for those who sought it, this will be a fairly laidback event with very few restrictive rules on formations, class sizes, etc.
Obviously, formations of some sort will be required for most units. Units will have to stay reasonably close to each other as well. Ramboing, will not be permitted unless, of course, it is harmless and (hopefully) funny.
Line infantry will have to remain in lines and will have to fire in lines for the most part.
Firing out of formation will be permitted, but it is frowned upon. It was never an issue in MM since bullets are so inaccurate.
If only three players are left in a unit, they have the option to charge, retreat to the guns, assuming they are still operational, or to a nearby line.
If only three players are left alive on one side and the other side is decisively winning, rules will no longer be imposed upon the losing team, so long as they are not intentionally delaying and have some tactical objective they are pursuing (i.e. they are actually trying to put up a good fight). If the team with the advantage has more than 20 players, the rules will still be in effect for them. If the team with the advantage has less than 20, but more than ten, units will have to stay together, but can break formation in order to quickly end the round. If there’s less than 10, then they can do whatever they want.
Cavalry will be limited to 20 per team, with a maximum of 10 lancers per team. The rest of the cavalry unit may go another class.
Skirmishers will be limited to 15 per team and are free to choose their infantry class. They will have to stay in some formation, have a maximum spacing of 5, and can use any terrain, foliage or barricades they possess in any manner they choose.
Arty will be limited to two cannons per team. Their cannon guard is permitted to act as skirmishers so long as they remain nearby the guns. Cannon guard size shouldn't exceed 15 infantry rankers, but I really don’t foresee this being an issue.
These are the general guidelines for the event, although I don’t think they really will need to be referenced. Most of the people who will be attending are mature, MM veterans who don’t whine about absurd little things. This should be a relaxed, fun event, not a ragefest.

No, did you read it? It'll be hosted by the 1stRddt on their 200 slot server. It's open to anyone.
