Introduction

     When I first made my regiment, I found it difficult to start up. I had no idea where to look, or what exactly I needed to do. I had been in regiments before, so I knew the general basics of how to run one, but I didn't know where to start. I write this post to help those interested in making a regiment. I want to make the process as easy as possible so that you can get up and running sooner, and enjoy the game.

     At times, operating a regiment is a pain, especially at the start. You will have to learn what atmosphere bests suits your regiment. You will have to deal with so many different factors, from picking a name, to getting recruits. Yes, it can be a pain, but once it gets running smoothly, it is a lot of fun.



Picking a Name

     The name of your regiment is vital. It is what you will be known as, and can even define your regiment. There are different ways you can pick a name. You could scour the internet in search of a historically accurate name. Or you can make one up. Keep in mind however, you want your name to be unique. It will save everybody a lot of confusion, and make you more recognizable. Before you pick your name, make sure you know what faction you want your regiment to be.

     If you want to pick a historically accurate name, be prepared to get digging. Many of the names are already taken, especially if you want a British regiment. Below are some links to help you to find a name that is still available.

*Keep in mind, not all regiments are on this list, only those who have signed up for it. Google search your desired regiment name and look for a forum page, or search directly in the form to double check yours is unique.*



Essentials

     Now that you have chosen your name, you are going to need to...
Forum Page

     A Forum page is where you will tell people about your regiment, advertise your regiment, and organize your regiment. This you will want to put on your regiment...
     Don't forget to make it look good. People will be interested in your regiment if you have a nice forum page. Put effort into it, because you want to show people that you are serious. Distinguish yourself from other regiments.

Ranks

     Establishing a set of ranks will bring structure to your regiment. It will create a chain of command, and keep your regiment from falling apart if you die in a battle. The majority of regiments highest rank is Colonel (or the equivalent rank). Below are some links to lists of ranks.

Ranks:

*I use a slightly tweaked version of these*

TeamSpeak

     TeamSpeak is a free voice chat software. It allows many people to be in a server, and servers are split into multiple channels for organization. TeamSpeak is essential if you want to easily communicate your orders to your men. Once you have TeamSpeak, you will need to find a server. There are many free servers out there, they have multiple groups of people on them. Look around and I'm sure you will find a good server. If you are willing, you can pay to host your own server to have your regiment exclusively on it. Unfortunately there is no one place that I can provide a link for you to find a list of TeamSpeak servers available.

TeamSpeak Download:

Steam Group

     A Steam Group is a great way to get all your members into one place. You can use it to send messages to everyone in the regiment, or schedule upcoming events. It makes life a lot easier, as long as people check the steam group every once in a while.



Recruiting

     Believe it or not, you have made it through the easy stuff. Now time for the hard part. Recruiting is tedious, annoying, and difficult. Most of the people in this game are already in a regiment. You just have to keep trying. Regiments to die out, so that creates more recruits, and people buy the game. I started my regiment with a friend, and later convinced another friend to buy the game and he joined too. It is always nice to play with friends, and they add a few more to your roster.

     There are a few ways to recruit. You can go onto servers that allow recruiting and play around for a bit, try to play well, and then ask if anyone is interested in joining a regiment. Or, if you have one, try and get your server populated and recruit on that.

There is a good article on recruiting already.

Events

     Great, you have people, Communication, and Advertising. Now you to make the regiment do what it was made for. You need events. Events are the battles that your regiment will attend, it is probably why you made the regiment in the first place, to eventually fight in battles. There are tons of weekly events out there. It's your job to choose what days you want the events to be on, and then sign up for them. Below are some links to help you find some events.

Running a Regiment

     Now that you have your regiment set up,you need to operate it smoothly. This section will discuss how to do just that. The sections I will be covering are...
Communication

     Communication is key to making sure your new regimen doesn't fall through the cracks. You need to be able  inform your members of upcoming events, tell them what you expect in the regiment, and plan things with them. As I stated earlier, Steam Group are a great tool to use to communicate easily. They get everybody into one place, and the majority of players use steam anyway. Some other options could include a custom website, a forum, or even TeamSpeak.

Discipline

     Discipline is what makes the regiment do well. Without it, you will not be able to turn the tide in a battle, or take on enemy lines. Not only does discipline make you play well, it creates a more enjoyable game. If you play well, your men will be happy, and you will be able to stay alive longer in battles. Everybody likes to win.

     Discipline can be a tricky thing to tackle. Even if all your guys are good players, and want to do well. When you are in a battle, orders can be misheard, or not heard at all, because people will be talking over you. They are not doing anything bad, just having a good time. Sometimes however, you need to keep your men quiet so that they can hear your orders, and then carry them out. There is a widely used method to do this, it is called Permission to Talk (PTS). PTS usually works where the officers may talk freely, but non-officers must say "PTS," and then have an officer say "Granted" in return, and then they can talk. There may be days where you won't need to use PTS.

     Another discipline issue can be a lack of training. At first, event lining up and maneuvering can be difficult. Having a day in the week dedicated to training can fix this. If you work on getting your regiment t operate fluidly, and to be able to get into certain formations quickly, then you will be a much more effective regiment. At training you will want to go over basics maneuvers, then move on to some more advanced maneuvers. Give some time to train in target practice and melee to improve individual skill. Its great if you can get into formations quickly, but if your men can't hit anything, or die in a charge, then the formations won't matter. One last thing to cover in training is to split your regiment in half and have your officers lead the separate line against each other. This will give your officers some experience, and give your men some field training.

Command

     Command is your, the officers, ability to lead your troops in an effective manner. Command skill comes through experience. There is no better way to train yourself as an officer than to get out there and lead your line as much as you can. However, there are some tactics that can be taught. We will go over some of those tactics here.

Flanking: This is one of the simplest of tactics there are. Flanking is when you position your men behind the enemy and attack them from there. This will panic your opponent, and force him to re-position, all as you are picking off their men.

Square: Forming a square is an anti-cavalry formation. You have the front rank kneel down with bayonets braced, and the guys behind them stand and fire. Works better with larger numbers.

Hammer and Anvil: A maneuver where you have one line attack the front, while the other hits them from behind. Works better with larger numbers.

Cover: You can not usually hide behind trees and such, but you can hide your men just behind a hill having them be able to fire over the hill, but making smaller targets for the enemy.

     There are many more tactics out there that would need an entirely different forum post to cover them all, but the tactics above are the basics. Feel free to modify these tactics  adapt to whatever situation you are in.

     The general play style of the different unit types differ. As Line Infantry, you should operate as a well mixed regiment, some melee, and some shooting. Light Infantry focus on firing, but can stand in melee. Rifles focus on long range firing. Cavalry focus on charging. Take note to focus on your unit types play style when it comes to training.

Relax

     Don't forget, the whole purpose of making a regiment is to have fun. Don't take it too seriously, joke around. It will make your men more inclined to be active and make your life easier. Have fun, play well, and you will do well.



Good Luck!

     Good luck! You have now created your regiment. All that is left now is to keep your head above the water, and work hard to make sure you stay active. I hope that this How To guide has helped you to create your regiment. If you have any questions or suggestions, leave them in a reply to this thread.

This could be helpful to a lot of people starting out. Although I wouldn't reccomend everyone tries this... As not all people are made to create regiments. As well as recruitment is already bad out there for a lot of regiments, people underestimate how much time you need to put into it to actually make a decent regiment.

Few grey spots, but its the basics.

I actually think Gurkha's comment was quite appropriate, to elaborate; whilst going into alot of detail about to actually make the creative rights to the regiment, as in name and servers, The guide does not quite go into enough detail about how to run, manage and lead a regiment. I think for something like this to be stickied it would have to go into more detail than info at the bottom of Audiate's Regiment list, which is all this seems to be.

Write a bit more, the section titled: What Now? Should be the longest section, Perhaps split into multiple sections.

As a foundation post, this has creditable content, but you have to give more than just; here is a list of links you might find useful: Good Luck!

One thing that i see happening to alot of new regiments that they are starting off with 20 diffrent ranks right off the bat.
You dont need 8 different NCO ranks when you start off nor do you need 15 ranks for normal soldiers.

Another thing that angers me is the balance between CO/NCO and normal soldiers. When your regiment has 10 people , it is unneeded that 7 of them are NCO's. (but this might be due to members joining new regiments want to hold a place of power).

Just my opinion on things.

This is very true, I often see Regiments of 10 attendance with a Colonel, a Lt Colonel, Captain, couple of Lieutenants, a ton of NCOs and 2 privates. Makes me sick :c

In the 77y i took on the volunteerly job of Regimental Secretary  which involves me having to maintain the ranks , roster and generally speaking anything administrative in the regiment (which is one of the biggest in this community) .

From my expierence having too much ranks leads to anything but high organization , it just least to the exact opposite.
It is a a complete pain having to keep track and having to edit everyone's different rank (for me but also for the CO's).Having a serious amount of ranks only this this worse.

Thats why in my opinion having a small but well thought out rank system is way more organized than having a overflowing amount of ranks.

I agree that having an unbalance in NCO's and Enlisted. But I think have many ranks can be beneficial. It all depends on the atmosphere, and style of your regiment.

If you have enaugh energy, and want to command something, then instead of making new regiment, join one, which really needs active people with commanding skill. If you are good at that, you will be surely promoted in few weeks.

I think you also have to be unique.

Using our regiment as an example, while we are the 9y Leib Gvardii...there are no ranks. No one person is better than the other although we do have different roles.

We also don't recruit in public servers really, induction is all by reccomendation or we know of you. This allows us to not only stay as a community of friends but also keeps our skill high. We've done really well in NA events so far.

People look for skill+something unique, I would start with that.

What you're describing sound more like a clan than a regiment. Also not all people look for skill, some people join regiments so they can be the best melee player in it because they want to satisfy their e-peen.

New regiments don't really matter anymore in this community

Basically the only good regiments were the major regiments last summer, or it's a group of people who left one of those major regiments.

It's pointless in my opinion to make a reg

Post by: Emperor Napoleon on July 11, 2013, 02:27:06 pm
New regiments are needed, to keep the community going. If there were only a few major regiments, then there would much smaller line battle's, events, and people would loose interest in the game. Sometimes people like it when they can be focused on, instead of being in a line of 40+ men and the officers don't know who's who.
Title: Re: How To: Make a Regiment
Post by: Joseph Graham on July 11, 2013, 02:35:10 pm
Napoleon has a fair point. Personally, I think that line infantry regiments seem to get it the worst; the discipline required is exceptional and there isn't much of an opportunity for the officers to integrate with the line itself during the event seeing as they have to focus on the battle as a whole. It's a shame, but it doesn't give them much time to get to know their members in contrast to Rifles, Light Infantry, Artillery, etc.
Title: Re: How To: Make a Regiment
Post by: Eazy-E on July 11, 2013, 02:50:37 pm
I kind of disagree with you there Neuron, I lead a line of 20-25 and we remain disciplined in Linebattles, yet we still talk and have banter and stuff. Also a lot of our "getting to know each other" takes place after the Linebattles, where we stay around in teamspeak to chat and play other games

At this point it definitely is hard, right now it might even be harder even after Bannerlord comes out... I think if you want to make a regiment in a non-standard way or the way you do things is different then it might be a good idea. Problem is there are so many regiments, and I scratch my head a bit when somebody says they are making a new regiment that's English Coldstream Infantry. :P

Watching other regiments threads is a good way to get an idea what your thread could look like

Couple things I want to mention about communication. TeamSpeak 3 must easily be the #1 communication channel people use but I just wanted to point out there are other alternatives.
Our regiment uses RaidCall. Sure its not as reliable as TeamSpeak and you need to reset the server quite often but its free :)
Also Steam group call and even Skype bots works quite nicely as a backup if your main communication channel breaks dows. We once had an event that we used Steam group call as a solution and it worked well with 10 ppl in it.

     The name of your regiment is vital. It is what you will be known as, and can even define your regiment. There are different ways you can pick a name. You could scour the internet in search of a historically accurate name. Or you can make one up. Keep in mind however, you want your name to be unique. It will save everybody a lot of confusion, and make you more recognizable. Before you pick your name, make sure you know what faction you want your regiment to be.

When a dude thinks about starting a regiment, it means that he spent the past few months in a regiment as ranker or NCO. It also means that he already knows all the basics of the regiments : Teamspeak : ofc all regiments have a ts. Forum : Regiments choose to have a forum or not, and find someone to make it. Events : He knows that regiment participate / or organise events. Maybe he doesn't know it's on FSE, then this post won't help if he doesn't know FSE. There are plenty of ranks that can be used, if he spent months / years in the community, I think he saw a lot of ranks.
I just mean that when ppl want to create their regiment, they don't need to watch this post, if they do, they are not ready and don't have enough experience to create one.
I mean standard recruit that have 2 months in the NW community, they know pretty much evrything you said in the post :l

Post by: Cpt.Griffin on September 11, 2015, 02:50:43 am
My tips;


1. Have a core group of members who are with you on starting a regiment who will commit to being active and helping you recruit. At least 5 is  good number.

2. Make your regiment unique. Find a fact or something you can offer that no other regiments do; be original. If you're just copycatting every other regiment out there, chances are, those regiments you're just impersonating in order to gain some leadership will get more members than you.

3. STAY THE COURSE. Building a regiment is not easy, but persistence is key. Keep at it. You will go through tough times with little to no members, but keep at it. Rome was not built in a day.

The most common way to make a forum is to purchase a website from a host like Enjin.com (http://www.enjin.com/), which is designed for hosting clan websites for various games. They're nice for having applications to join a regiment, but even so, most people tend to register and never go back to the site again, so I wouldn't be too worried about it. Your Steamgroup's discussion page is a simple and free.

Go ahead and try to make it, I am younger than you and I have a running decent regiment with small numbers but it is growing. Just don’t act stupid or immature and most people won’t care.
