It would be better if instead of so many small inexperienced and disorganized units poping up under brand new commanders, these same commanders formed platoons or companies within large and successful regiments so that the new leaders had mentors and role models to live up to and learn from. This would also help maintain certain standards of professionalism that this community desperately needs, as well as diminish the frequency of small 8 man lines snake-ing around the map like skirmishers or some damn thing. All the same, I advise all prospective officers to have served at a ranker level for at least a year or two in a respectable unit before considering forming a new unit of their own.

While i totally agree with you on this (the BC it's self is currently offering this) as an event hoster i have to say that those little 8 man lines are lifesavers sometimes, without them balance is often really awkward!

Well Good Luck with trying this .

All my life I’ve been fearful of defeat. But now that it has come it’s not near as terrible as I’d expected. The sun still shines, water still tastes good…glory is all well and good but life is enough, nay?

One method I oft use to gain new recruits is rather than recruit them on the spot and directly; invite them to trial with your regiment as an unsigned mercenary. This way they can see what your regiment has to offer before officially joining, and it also gives you a chance to see if they're right for your regiment, and visa-versa.

I've used this and often I've found that someone I was intending to recruit was not appropriately suited to my regiment, so I declined them from joining because of their behaviour / attitude towards the game.

One good egg is worth three rotten ones, I always say.

Hello. As I consider myself as a experienced guy, and was an officer in few regiments, also col, I think I might give you few decent advices.
1. Choose the fuckin best name. THIS IS YOUR BUSINESS CARD. First thing, potential cadet see is your name.  Do not seek for never used one, or even worse don't even try to seek for some "interesting, unknown regiment". Name should be glorious!
92nd name is great because of Waterloo movie. That scene made this name better than 42nd. Despite fact that 42nd and 3rdFG were a bit better regiments, imao.

It's easier to recruit when you're 2nd Coldstream than 2nd Zulu infantry.  That should be so obvious, but it's not. That's why some too much creative people all the time seek for some regiments I never heard about them. Cuz then my reaction is like : https://youtu.be/tbrETiALUIQ?t=48s

2. Merits. Good NCO is recruiting NCO. If you're Colonel, you should asap introduce merits system. 100 merits = lvl up. One invited guy= 20 points. Don't worry about amount of Cpls. You'll still have much more rankers.

3. Videos. Recruiting on the servers. Etc... It might help. But if your regiment will be fuckin 0, and your only goal would to be command, train formations and get rekt, so you should asap disband it, and do not waste time of some people anymore. Aim high! Discipline is vital, and winning is sense of this game.
Create great teamspeak 3 community, and great team in game. Regiment where everyone would like to be. Then, recruits will come to you.

4. If your regiment is shit... Disband it, do not ask some guys to join it cuz you'll waste their time. Pro tip.
