When did you start playing MM/NW?
Warband in 2010, sometime after it came out. Napoleonic Wars: June 2012, shortly before the Steam Summer Sale. What regiments have you been in previously?60th Rifles → 44th (East Essex) → 22nd (Cheshire)
| 1st Royal Marines
I joined the 60th Rifles [EU/NA]
in May 2013; my first foray into finding a regiment was successful. My NA leader, Menelaos broke our company off to create the 44th (East Essex) Regiment of Foot [NA]
in late June 2013. I followed him there, taking up the role of clerk/adjutant and reaching the rank of Serjeant for a short time. We disbanded in late January 2014. Many of us weren't ready to stop playing together, though, so we formed the beginnings of the 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment of Foot [NA]
on January 23rd, 2014. We are dubbed the "Red Knights"
So, I've only ever applied to a single regiment and played the game almost daily for over 3 years. Have you done anything notable?
That's not really for me to say. Possibly things for the regiments I have been in, but not much that the public would know of. We try to keep ourselves distanced from the main community for obvious reasons, but remain friendly to people who are friendly and courteous to us. Update (03/01/2016):
In July 2015, I helped the 22nd
to win first place in the Twitch Napoleonic Wars League (TNWL)
, becoming the champions of the Semi-Pro League ($200 cash prize
). Additionally, the 22nd
became one of the founding member regiments of The Seventh Coalition, a social group that was formed by several regiments. Their goal was to bring other like-minded regiments together to promote friendly relations and social activities, free from toxicity. At present time of this writing I am filling the role of a moderator for the sixth season of the North American Napoleonic Wars League (NANWL)
. Despite the various issues I have with the league, I am proud of the work that I've put toward it and am dedicated to making sure that all possible optimizations are made for the next season of the NANWL
I was officially given control of running NANWL in July 2016, but had been making preparations for Season 7 as early as May 2016, before the end of Season 6. I'm currently the head administrator of NANWL Season 7 and have put into place all or almost all of the optimizations that I deemed necessary to improve the league. All changes were thoroughly discussed and debated by 5 moderators that openly applied for the position. I have made no large decisions without consulting every member of the moderation team. We run this league together, not from the top-down. To remove any conflict of interest, I am not involved in any regiment that is participating in NANWL. With the new measures put into place for staff to communicate with each other, such as the NANWL Discord server, running Season 7 is honestly a breeze compared to Season 6.Current Regiment/Rank?
Captain and leader of the 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment of Foot [NA]
. Our original leader and my co-founder of the regiment had to leave due to activity issues in February 2014, so I've served as the administrator and leader of the regiment since. cOre, who was my co-leader until August 2016, also led the regiment with me since February 2014. Bilbo Teabaginz served as our 2nd in command until August 2014. In September 2014, Farmer, our lieutenant from the 44th (East Essex)
, joined us as our new XO and has now attained the rank of captain as the leader of our rifle company detachment. BillyBurnesMcGurne, an old serjeant we had in the 44th
, also joined us as our serjeant major at the same time. He excelled at the role, eventually attaining the rank of lieutenant. Along with our NCO staff, we lead the regiment together and consult each other in all major happenings of the regiment. This is something we wanted to make sure happened so that the disconnect we experienced between officers and NCOs/rankers in the 44th
didn't happen again. Update (10/07/2016):
In July 2016, I joined the 1st Royal Marines
, led by George V, primarily to participate in Season 2 of the Twitch Napoleonic Wars League since the 22nd
is no longer interested in competitive NW. I attained the rank of warrant officer with the 1stRM
, playing with them on the days that the 22nd
does not have events scheduled. A large part of my decision to join the 1stRM
was the merging of a significant portion of the former 6teSLR
into the 1stRM
by Hesse. Hesse and many of the members from the former 6teSLR
are friends of mine and I enjoy their company. That has now expanded to others in the 1stRM
Musings on "double-regging".
Some people have criticized me as being a "double-regger", but fail to provide solid reasons to back up their negative viewpoint. There is nothing inherently wrong with being part of multiple regiments. The negative connotation of "double-regger" stems from the belief that the person would not put forth their full effort of participating in both regiments. This is a very real concern and almost certainly is the case most of the time, especially when the schedules of both regiments conflict. This, however, is not the case with me. My agreed upon schedule with the 1stRM does not conflict in any way with the 22nd's and my attendance with the 1stRM is better than the majority of its own members. Beyond my presence, I have provided the 1stRM with the same services that I have my own regiment: TeamSpeak organization, attendance/roster records, in-game initiative & discipline, general advice and above all else: friendship.
I invite anyone who wants to fact check this to contact George V
I have successfully run my own regiment for over 3 years and never, as an individual, left any of my previous regiments. I am probably one of the few people in the NA community that has earned the right to join another regiment, free of criticism. It is quite rich when people who have left and joined other regiments many times try to claim that they are more dedicated than me because they do a lot for their current regiment. They are hypocrites and should not be judging others when they have a less than stellar record of their own.
