Regiments / 40th (the 2nd Somersetshire) Regiment of Foot [NA]
« on: October 28, 2019, 03:53:43 am »


About
The 40th is a competitive NA based regiment formed in late October of 2019. This regiment is a continuation of the Nr23 which was also founded and lead by Yoloswag and Yoshie. The goals of this regiment is to add more diversity in the regimental scene as well as becoming the most skilled regiment in the process of forming friendships and building upon our chemistry. You'll see the 40th primarily in competitive atmospheres such as groupfights and 1v1s, but we also attend public linebattles as well.

Regiment History
The 40th (the 2nd Somersetshire) Regiment of Foot was an infantry regiment of the British Army, raised in 1717 in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. Under the Childers Reforms it amalgamated with the 82nd Regiment of Foot (Prince of Wales's Volunteers) to form the Prince of Wales's Volunteers (South Lancashire Regiment) in 1881.The regiment was raised at Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia by General Richard Philipps as the Richard Philipps's Regiment of Foot in August 1717 out of independent companies stationed in North America and the West Indies.

Introduction
The North American Napoleonic Wars Draft League (NWDL for short) will be a fast-paced public league (likely 2 matches per week) with the best players in North America being drafted to several teams by appointed/registered captains from the player pool. These drafted teams of eight (five starters, three subs) will be named by the NWDL staff and assigned to team captains. We are aiming for a total of 6 teams. The main focus of this league is the community itself and so input will be taken from community members as well NWDL staff to contribute to the growth of this league. NWDL differs from other draft leagues (namely WPC) primarily because of its administration and rule set. There will be no gimmick of salaries, team captains are restricted from leaving the team they have drafted, and trades will be making a return to be implemented differently. NWDL makes a comeback for season 2 but this time with an improved rule set and new 5 (8) player teams. The draft will also be conducted as a snake draft this season instead of a round by round draft. Only players who are mature enough to conduct themselves in a professional manner may be permitted to participate in this league.

Draft (Date:August 12th)
The draft will be fairly simple. Captains and draft order will be decided by NWDL staff, then the draft will begin in a regular draft style. Captains will be drafting 5 starting players and 3 bench players. Players will be drafted to these set teams of 8 and any undrafted players will be placed in the free agency pool.

Reasoning
Karth
To put it simply he did the most with the least. His regiment wasn't the greatest in the scene to start with but had been highly competitive in the scene always under Karth's leadership and even dominant at points up until Karth's departure. While his regiment did have some melee players it paled in comparison to most other competitive regiments. Karth made use of his regiments shooting in a way nobody has replicated since, with extreme IQ of shooting angles, timing, and maneuverability in what was most of the time a huge line. He was able to put together a tight cohesion in a regiment that lasted strong through out the years while the others faded and when returned seemed to have lost their touch. Karth's consistency and dominance over the scene in a highly competitive time earns him the top big brain spot on this list.
[close]
Breaches/Tico
While it was known that Breaches was a decent bit better of a leader than Tico, it's hard not to give credit to them as a duo for their complete destruction of the scene in the early days of competitive NW. These guys put together a regiment so skilled and bred straight from scratch, the likes of which hadn't been seen yet in NA's scene ever. Tico playing an integral role in the regiment's development as the Colonel, while Breaches lead the charges in linebattles. While they were active the two were unmatched as leaders for a long period of time. They made pretty damn good use of the volley and charge as their melee was as dominant as their stacked officer corps. Having this advantage in melee is always nice as a leader and is no fault of the 12th's as they trained them to be that good, but it also takes away from the amount of effort one may need to put into leading at certain points. After the 12th it didn't really feel like they ever had that sauce, more so probably because they were just playing to have fun and not sweat nearly as hard.
[close]
AsianP
I honestly can't speak too much on AsianP's older days, but back then he formed and developed the 3eVolt to later become an all-time hall of fame regiment. He also found success later with the 79th, 58e/91st and later 3eVolt reforms. It seemed he taught Grimsight how to lead as well who is regarded by most as one of NW's greatest leaders so I suppose you could say he is a leading pioneer. He had really good fundamental leading and timing of his shots that blended well into melee engagements, he also good use of maneuvering around the map. He wasn't the most active during his 58e/91st days but when he was on it was what made the difference for the 58e to dominate other regiments. His leading when he came back was still pretty good and above most other leaders which led to his success particularly with the newer 3eVolt over the LG. So yeah extremely well rounded player and leader, definitely deserves this spot. Actually one negative thing is he sometimes chokes.. nothing too bad though.
[close]
Grimsight
Grimsight pioneered some tactics back in the day that people now use all the time, such as the "reverse column". I mean I don't actually know if that's true but he used it really well in linebattles. He was usually best leading around his big ass line where he'd reverse and bait your shots then reverse back, get a better angle and plop his line down for a big ol' shooting engagement followed by a charge. It's pretty frustrating to deal with someone who is just constantly moving and is hard to get any shots off on. Grim led the 3eVolt to it's peak during 2013/2014 where he was able to be one of the largest and most competitive regiments in the game and were the only ones able to compete with the 12th on a close level. A real bright individual.
[close]
Cheeseypants
Led a pretty large regiment back in the peak 71st days and managed to compete with Karth and win an NWL title. He was pretty fast with his reverse and used a simple but deadly leading style to come out as one of the best regiments in that era. Though Cheesey didn't necessarily find huge success until he had a huge cast of melee players to crutch on when he needed it, and he also used it to his advantage. This kind of takes away from his leading so it notches him down a spot though he was a very solid and consistent leader.
[close]
Zorkoth
Zorkoth was actually a pretty decent leader and lead the line the most out of anyone else other than Tico and Breaches. His leading I am not very familiar with but I'm sure he made a big impact for the 12th and stepped up when it was needed.
[close]
Ody
Ody was pretty underrated back in his day just because of how hated he was as a person. He actually led quite a disciplined and tight crew though and used his swivel tactics to his advantage, when paired with a few key melee players like he had after the 71st disappeared, he can prove to be quite difficult to deal with. Even without them his leading was always a pain in the ass to deal with and his regiment were like above average pubs that he'd trained so he was decent for sure.
[close]
Irish
The 6te was/is quite the motley crew, but Irish but it together and managed to dominate the latter half of the NW 1v1 era. He uses his shots with great effectiveness and manages to keep a solid distance between the regiments. What I mean by that is he'll manuever to safe spots and advance to avoid shots really well and then reverse and reform and all that pretty line stuff. Pretty similar to Knight of St John's leading style actually, though he did have some pretty good melee carries at times to rely on. But yeah he's an extremely stubborn leader and with this won S8 and came 2nd in S9 of NWL with a lot of it being leadership.
[close]
Alexander
Alexander's regiments namely the 7y and 5th dominated the underground scene while they were active. They didn't really have the player base to compete with a lot of these high skilled regiments but it was mostly through Alexander's leadership and cohesion as a unit that led them to be able to compete with these regiments as well as keep dominating the "league 2" scene. Alexander managed to form a larger group with more experienced players in what would be his pinnacle in the 75th. He managed to lead his regiment to a league title which is an impressive feat no matter the time period, though it was against a practically fallen apart 18th squad. His workhorse attitude and commitment led them to that title and few can deny him that TNWL win. Unfortunately Alexander didn't find much success in NW after this as his future attempts at putting together a solid regiment failed and he was basically squashed out of the scene.
[close]
Stox
Also an underrated leader, Stox excelled at leading massive lines and maneuvering them about. In the 54th's peak they were competing heavily with the 63e, 3eVolt, and 71st. Stox had a fucking stacked officer core as well that was utilized well including names like ByeBye, Locust, Balthazar, Decimos etc. Stox had an extremely disciplined unit and had a massive regiment so they had a lot of pubs but also SOME decent melee players. I think they lacked in the melee department for sure but with Stox's leading and use of volleys they were one of the top dogs back in the day. They kinda did fall off though in their later reforms struggling against regiments like the Nr37. The 12te was pretty decent as well but never peaked to the level of size and skill that the original 54th had.
[close]
Knight of St John
Knight of St John was quite an effective leader despite the skill disparity his regiment would have in melee engagements. The PSG was a coordinated regiment but lacked individual skill, to make up for this he made use of tight left/right advances and reform columns to evade and bait the other regiments shots, then would try to find a good range to pick the other regiment apart in shooting before finishing them in a melee engagement where they had the numbers advantage. He was quite difficult to deal with as a leader because of his meticulous and stubborn leading style. He was able to earn most of his regiment's victories as well as a L2 victory with the PSG and another leading the AEF to their title. He had some close matches with higher tier regiments and I would consider him as one of those "what if he lead this regiment of players" leaders for sure.

Community Representative Board / NA Community Rep Post - April-June Term
« on: January 01, 2019, 06:08:27 am »
END OF TERM/START OF TERM UPDATE


Well well well, the people have chosen wisely once again.

First off, I want to start by thanking you all for voting me in to my FOURTH community representative term. I appreciate all who voted in the election. This will likely be my last term serving as CR. I have been preoccupied with doing college in the morning as well as working 3-11 shifts right after that so it has not left me with so much free time this last week. I want to apologize as it was not a great time to be absent. This is not an indicator of the term though as I do plan to be actually even more active than I was in the last term.


Old News
ONGOING #1 - RECENT HACKING ALLEGATION
Recently there have been allegations of hacking against Matt. There was a community meeting held by Jolly (pretty much my vice-CR), and the conclusion was that the evidence was not conclusive enough to bring down the hammer. Matt being an extremely skilled player and being considered the most well rounded player in NA at the moment by many, so when the allegations were brought forth it turned into a "shit-show". People posting about this on multiple threads and people gossiping etc etc. It has been pretty much settled. Matt I believe has also started to step away from the game from what it seems to me.

ONGOING #2 - THE END OF THE 4V4
Really this has been my central focus of my last term in making sure this would be ran smoothly and would be something that would be enjoyed by the vast majority of the community. Something people could get excited about in 2019. I have received help from many members of the community and this league being ran as successful as it has would not be possible without their contributions. It was my goal from the start to make this less of a dictatorship and more of a community based league where all input is valued and appreciated. And it has been. Since this is one of the first properly ran draft leagues there were problems that were encountered but it was mainly just a culmination of a bunch of small issues that we sorted out throughout the season. This is to be expected imo of the first iteration of the league and if/when we decide to do this league again (whether it be 4v4 or another kind), these problems will be dealt with and improved upon in order to make "a perfect league". I appreciate everyone's patience, participation, and concerns with the league.

The last match week of the league is ending on the 9th. The post-season championship will be followed the week after so stay tuned!

ONGOING #3 - WHAT I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN MY FOLLOWING TERM
To keep it to the point, I'll quote my application in spoilers as well as brief the application.
Windy's App
Quote from: Windflower
Name: Windflower
EU or NA?: NA
Are you aware that the position of Community Representative is one of trust and confidence, and do you understand you can be punished for breaking that trust?: Yes
Why should you become CR?:

       I felt good about my last term, a real sense of some accomplishment within the scene and I only want to do more and more and more for the benefit of the community. I feel like I have more to do especially since the 4v4 league has occupied much of my recent time. I think the community was overall satisfied with my recent term which is good and I plan to inject the community with as much life as I can. I also feel like I have the most experience with this position and I have only found ways to better the role and make use of it. Though the casual side of the community may have been a bit neglected by me for this recent term hopefully I can put my efforts towards that more strongly this next term as I won't be so preoccupied with running the 4v4 league.

My competency as an administrator and moderator alone lead me to believe I am the best candidate for this role. Also a critique for myself might be that I'm not as active as I should be due to school and working closing shifts. School is pretty coming to a close and I know that I'm going to be online a lot more to deal with the player base and whatever may be going on. The community has been a lot more involved with these recent CR terms which is really good for the role itself and has brought the role to something more community based rather than the sole-CR based.

While the casual community may have been neglected a little they seem to putting along without too much distress. It's also important to remember that the competitive community makes up probably like 90-95% of FSE (which is where the CR's strengths lie.). Without the competitive community there basically is no community which would render the CR role a whole lot more useless. It is kind of important to elect a fitting person into the role of CR because it can actually impact the community more than you think. Other than that, I'm planning to keep doing what I'm doing.

CR FAQ
What is a Community Representative (CR) and how do you vote for one?

For information on this topic please see the following thread, as this has already been covered. This topic will run you through the election process, the basics of what a Community representative is and how you can get involved and vote!

In short, the Community Representative is the Community Board Moderator and member of the Moderation team, elected by forum members, to represent the interest of the forum community.




What are the core responsibilities of a Community Representative?

A Community Representative has a few different roles, and while each nominated representative may see the role differently, the main idea of a community representative is for these three areas;

1. To be a gateway between the moderation team and the community (the Community Representative will have access to the Global Administration Board).

1a. To suggest improvements based on the consensus of the community or to advise on the moderators plans/suggestions.

2. To handle community/thread disputes within FSE.

3. To do what we can do keep the FSE Community both happy and running for as long as possible.

Since each CR will have a different perspective on the role, bear in mind that outside of these three aspects, the Community Representative is largely up to the platform of the individual.




What can a Community Representative Help you with?

Here are some things that I've found that Community Representatives are commonly asked and can help with;

1. A Community Representative can edit or remove posts on threads within the Off Topic and Community boards.

2. A Community Representative can put a suggestion forward to the moderation team on the Global Administration board.

3. A Community Representative should be the first contact for any disputes or arguments on the forum. If someone is causing issues for your regiment or event on the forums then the Community Representative should be your first port of call. I'd suggest contacting them via Steam or PM's.

4. A Community Representative, depending on their skills, may be able to help you with other areas of your thread such as helping you with editing your post if you've made a mistake in your BB Code. This will depend on the current Community Representative's skill but if they can't help with this or say getting a signature for your regiment they will be able to point you in the direction of someone who can.

5. A Community Representative can help you with any general forum queries. If you are new and have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask them.

6. A Community Representative can move a thread for you if it's in the wrong area in the Community or Off Topic boards.





What can't a Community Representative Help you with?

1. A Community Representative can't change your username on the forums. If you post on this thread, someone can do it for you.

2. A Community Representative can't warn, ban, or mute forum users; however, they can put suggestions forward to the moderators on the Global Administration's watch list.

3. A Community Representative can't delete a thread; neither can a moderator, but they can lock the thread for you.

4. A Community Representative can't delete, edit, or remove posts outside of the Off Topic or Community boards.

Knowing what you can do as a CR is important and it is also important for the community to know to understand what community reps can do here on the forums. NA holds high standards for what community reps should do/be doing but you must also understand outside of the forums we are the same as you. If you have not been following the election here are a few posts in which I've outlined what I want from my term. Also if you want anything in particular from my term or want to see certain things done please by all means that what this thread is for.




Here I will try to make a weekly update on the NA community's and my own ongoing's.

JAN-MARCH TERM
DEC 31 - JAN 7
Ongoing #1 (Changes to community representative/current state):

Some of you have campaigned for changes to the current CR role. It is a community position so we want to have as much feedback and constructive criticism as we can to help improve the effectiveness of CR. If you have anything to say on this matter please leave a post here so that it can be further discussed as NA seems to be the more dissatisfied with the position.
Here's a quick quote from the election thread from Shadow:
Shadow's take on the current state of CR
[close]
I feel like the Community Representative is good for what is what made to do in it's current state but I also feel there's room for improvement so if you have anything you'd like to say on that matter please do post here.

Ongoing #2 (Melee only event): Link here
Still in its infancy stages but seems to be the start of something if we can develop interest. I wanted to talk to tired about his suggestion to gather interest as well. I feel like if done right  it could really be a good thing for both
casual and competitive sides of the community. I will definitely keep updates on this and try to work toward it.

Ongoing #3 (Holiday lull):

WPC's finals are on hold until community member Waste returns apparently,  thing is taking forever to finish
NWGL is resuming this week
- After these 2 events we're going to need more to keep the community from flat out dying, its good to consider what we can do after these are finished.
[close]
JAN 7 - JAN 14
Ongoing #1 (Melee only event)
The first melee only event is taking place with the help of BBG tired. The Leib-Grenadiers were invited to participate. Hoping this goes well and we can do it again with the 42nd.(:

Ongoing #2 (Fast Paced 4v4 Draft League)
After some polls it was narrowed down for this to be the next "league" style event which will be hosted probably very soon. Further discussion may be needed to sort out some intricacies of the league but the rest of the organization should be fairly straightforward in terms of how the league will work.

Ongoing #3 (CR position)
Doesn't seem like anybody has suggestions about having the position itself altered which is okay if the community is content with CR.
[close]
JAN 14 - 21
JAN 14 - 21
Ongoing#1 (Melee only event)
The first melee event took place and it was somewhat a success but with the wrinkles ironed out I think this can get established as an actual event with casual regiments but we'll do it with pubs for now I believe and with the LG/42nd's and some mercs help for the next one at least. Date TBD, I think Friday is what we're aiming for again.

Ongoing#2 (4v4 Draft League Fast Paced w/ Proper rules/trade system)
Still fleshing out how the league will be ran (with the help of the community), its rules, who will be helping running, etc. and once those are decided I will begin working on the thread for it and my aim for it is to be hosted in early-mid February.

Ongoing#3 (Amateur NA Duel Tournament(s)
May as well make an official announcement on this planned series of tournaments to be hosted for new/inexperienced players, it will be mainly organized by Jolly with my and others help. I believe these tournaments will commence at the end of the month.

Ongoing #4 (Casual community)
It seems as though some people want a little more done in the casual side of the community which I am all about, I am thinking of what I can do to help with this and I am open to suggestions and am currently investigating myself.

as for events and what not,
-Melee only event will still be happening
-Amateur Duel Tournament is happening very soon
-4v4 League is being hosted after the Amateur Duel Tournament
The 93rd and 73rd have been recently created giving a little extra life/diversity in NA which is a nice change. I'm pretty sure the competitive scene will pick up quite a bit more than it has stagnated for in the last couple months. I've been fairly busy this past week so I'm sorry for the lack of anything on this thread.
[close]
JAN 28 - FEB 4
JAN 28 - FEB 4
Ongoing #1 - 4v4 Draft League ($150 prize pool)
So after polling the community it has been decided this will be the next league. The thread has been posted and there have been around 30 signups already. The next step for me is to make the teams and then work out the dates and also the draft itself.

Ongoing#2 - North American Amateur Duel Tournament
The duel tournament went down the other day with the amateur players and we had a decent turnup with German_Gunner winning it. The next one will take place likely around late Feb-early March.

Ongoing#3 - Possible resurgence of line only linebattles, hosted by Midnight
I'm not sure how much the community is into this but it could be nice for "competitive regiments" who want to attend more linebattles again instead of waiting to schedule groupfights all the time.
Ongoing#4 - Talks of another season of NWL?
[close]
FEB 4 - 11
FEB 4 - 11
Ongoing#1 - 4v4 Draft League
We have signed up 45 players, the captains have been announced, and the draft is set to take place this Sunday. This is what I'm primarily working on right now and have directed most of my attention to. As well as some side community issues.

Ongoing #2 The apparent end of WPC
WPC has been booked for this Sunday apparently to finally end the league. This kinda marks the shift in major tournaments as the 4v4 league is just getting started.

Ongoing#3 Melee only event
I don't have any information regarding this, I haven't received word from tired or anyone really if they wanted to put one together but now is kind of inconvenient at the same time I suppose.

MAR 1 - 8
MAR 1 - 8

Ongoing #1 - Rise of Public Groupfighting and fall of BoB Groupfighting
Recently since BoB pretty much dissolved it saw the rise in popularity of Public Groupfighting which brings back NA_Groupfighting style administration with little tweaks and pretty cool scripts involving assists, no kd resetting, etc. Dallas Groupfighting seems to be kind of an absent placeholder but it's kind of hard to tell what's going on with that server. For now there is a central groupfighting server which is a good thing and a decent change for the community as it does also have better administration that BoB was somewhat lacking.

Ongoing #2 - NWDL
Currently NWDL is in its third week and things are progressing relatively smoothly with only a few bumps in the road with some minor tweaks here and there. The waiver wire will be at the end of this week after all the matches are completed and the captains will pick from the free agency pool.

Ongoing #3 - More (unique) competitive events
Brought to you by Jolly & Vetro with Fireboy's idea is the randomized 2v2 tournament in which you are paired up with a random partner from the sign ups to compete. Since this is a 2v2 there is a possibility to have a lot of teams so make sure you guys sign up and get your friends to sign up to make this a real tournament.

Brought to you by Dan the Chef is another one of his innovative tournaments, this time being a 5v5 capture the flag "test" tournament which has potential to be fun given there's enough interest/sign ups for it. You can sign up for the tournament here but you'll need a team to sign up with.

There are also a couple of other competitive events in the works but I'm not privy to that information.(;

Ongoing #4 - EU Tournament thing
Also this past week the NA team of the Napoleon's Cup EU tournament was eliminated due to bad sportsmanship long story short. It's not really worth going into and I'm sure most of you know the situation as it's the same shit every year. Pretty shitty to hear but it happens I guess and really you just have to move on because it is their tournaments in the end. There has been talk of hosting a "fair" world cup with multiple servers and all that but that would have to be well orchestrated and ran professionally in order to succeed I believe.

APRIL 1 - 8
END OF TERM/START OF TERM UPDATE


Well well well, the people have chosen wisely once again.

First off, I want to start by thanking you all for voting me in to my FOURTH community representative term. I appreciate all who voted in the election. This will likely be my last term serving as CR. I have been preoccupied with doing college in the morning as well as working 3-11 shifts right after that so it has not left me with so much free time this last week. I want to apologize as it was not a great time to be absent. This is not an indicator of the term though as I do plan to be actually even more active than I was in the last term.


ONGOING #1 - RECENT HACKING ALLEGATION
Recently there have been allegations of hacking against Matt. There was a community meeting held by Jolly (pretty much my vice-CR), and the conclusion was that the evidence was not conclusive enough to bring down the hammer. Matt being an extremely skilled player and being considered the most well rounded player in NA at the moment by many, so when the allegations were brought forth it turned into a "shit-show". People posting about this on multiple threads and people gossiping etc etc. It has been pretty much settled. Matt I believe has also started to step away from the game from what it seems to me.

ONGOING #2 - THE END OF THE 4V4
Really this has been my central focus of my last term in making sure this would be ran smoothly and would be something that would be enjoyed by the vast majority of the community. Something people could get excited about in 2019. I have received help from many members of the community and this league being ran as successful as it has would not be possible without their contributions. It was my goal from the start to make this less of a dictatorship and more of a community based league where all input is valued and appreciated. And it has been. Since this is one of the first properly ran draft leagues there were problems that were encountered but it was mainly just a culmination of a bunch of small issues that we sorted out throughout the season. This is to be expected imo of the first iteration of the league and if/when we decide to do this league again (whether it be 4v4 or another kind), these problems will be dealt with and improved upon in order to make "a perfect league". I appreciate everyone's patience, participation, and concerns with the league.

The last match week of the league is ending on the 9th. The post-season championship will be followed the week after so stay tuned!

Ongoing #1 Playoffs
We're finally in the closing times of the playoffs in the 4v4 league going on now as there are just 2 matches left to be played. The winner will go home with a total $150 pool and the loser will go home with nothing. Thanks! Until next season.

Ongoing #2 NANWL
This is going to be the next BIG event in the NW competitive scene so many resources will be used to make sure the 9th instalment of NANWL will run smoothly and professionally and that it also lives up to previous versions. The league sign-ups close May 4th and the league starts on May 11th so it will be a week or two after the 4v4 league ending that we will loop into a different league. The summer in particular is looking to see a little boost as is expected but the events and regiments popping up will increase even further I expect. For this season we've even seen the return of season 1 champions the 1aSvea. They're led by Wardop again but also seemed to be backed by quite a few of the former 93rd players to give it that kinda new gen. interest, good luck to them!

Ongoing #3 More events
After the 4v4 and during NWL I plan to host and contribute to a decent amount of competitive events. I'm also trying to see right now if a cavalry league is viable, for one to be worth while I would have to say around 5 regiments/detachments should sign up. I would also probably try to bring back the 1stMI (Mounted Infantry) under a different name (2ndMI) so basically just 4. It's a small community and I'm not that much into the cavalry scene so I'd probably have to get the help of a couple vets that know their way around the community more closely.

Ongoing #4 One groupfighting server
We have returned to the one groupfighting server days again which is fine as long as the administration is capable, not corrupt, and caters to the community it should do just fine and provide a centralized server for people. Go with the flow.(:

Ongoing #5 Australians
I fully support the Australians/OC, I did allow them to post their event threads in the NA event board until they were recently just granted their own boards for NW and BCoF which is cool for them, it should contribute to the activity of FSE as a whole and they are a decently sized community.
[close]
MAY
MAY UPDATE

First I'd like to apologize for the lack of any updates for the month of May. To conclude the ending of this month I will be posting this update. This has been a busy month for me personally as well as an uneventful month for NW besides the starting of NWL and a few other things, but here's what's in the works.

Ongoing#1 - Tiered Duel Tournament & Unarmed Tournament
With May seeming like a pretty uneventful month and the only major thing that's running being NWL since the draft league ended, it is time for the summer action to kick off. In the works right now is a Tiered Duel Tournament similar to the Amateur Duel Tournament hosted previously but with tiers for both pros AND joes and prizes for both. It is Jolly & I's plan to make this as large as we possibly can to bring back the recent lull of individual/non-regimental competitive events whilst also bringing in newer players to the scene. The thread will be posted within the next 2 days so stay tuned for that.

Following the Tiered Duel Tournament is something I came up with and had a map made specially for it courtesy of Zebaad. What this will be is an unarmed tournament (punches & kicks) aimed to involve everyone from all ranges of the community in one mega tournament to answer the question of who is the ultimate master of the fist (& foot). The plan to make this work on a large scale is to amplify the damage of punches and kicking through the usage of scripts to realistic damage levels to make the matches A. faster B. realistic and C. possible in a tournament setting. There will also be several arenas on the map designed after cage-match style MMA arenas. Here's a sneak peek.


Ongoing #2 - Leagues & Summer 2019
Not much to say on this front as NANWL has now been under way and is currently in its second week. This league can take up to 3 months so it may feel slow while the other events are going on but the administration and Risk are dealing with issues well and are maintaining the stability in what may be the last season. This isn't necessarily the largest but not the smallest NANWL either so there is much to look forward to for season 9.

As for NA's cavalry league I've kinda put that on the backburner right now while everything else goes on, if anyone has any suggestions for this league or NA cavalry in general feel free. Right now my focus is on the competitive scene in NA as it makes up the majority of the forum users as I've said before which is the most important thing. With this also comes with introducing the casual players into the competitive scene and in term FSE as a whole which is partly the reason for these upcoming events. This upcoming summer will hopefully be a prosperous last push for the community. As 2019 continues into Fall it seems the state of the community seems a little foggy so we might as well make the most of it while we can.

Forum & Website / Avatar sizing (important community poll)
« on: March 02, 2018, 06:35:21 pm »
I made a poll in my CR thread a bit ago about this but took it down in favour of a new thread. Vincenzo just bumped up the size of avatars from it's original 120x120 to 140x140 per my suggestion. We're now wondering if we should keep it at 140x140, go back to 120x120, or upgrade further to 150x150 size. It's best to ask the community about what they want for this kind of change since it can really change the aesthetic of the forum. So what do you guys want?


Ex. from Vincenzo:
Original FSE size: Image 120 by 120:


Updated size 140 by 140:


or upgrade larger to 150 by 150:

Community Representative Board / NA Community Rep Post - March-May Term
« on: February 28, 2018, 05:21:59 pm »
Hey guys, thanks for electing me as CR again! My term ends at the end of May so I have quite a bit of time for everything I want to do. My laptop broke for pretty much all of February so I was like aw darn. I said on the election post kinda what I wanna do in the future so you can give it a read, I quoted it here:

Spoiler
Quote
Well my plans right now is to get my laptop back. Then I can start working more with NWL stuff hopefully and hosting a couple of events of my own. I think the forum is going to kick up in popularity with the release of BCoF in the near future it seems and I want to continue to provide unbiased moderation and be a necessary mediator if I have to in conflicts as I have been. I want to help with anything the community does like promoting or helping with events. And while the pub community is great and necessary for the game, the competitive community is the one that drives it and is the bulk of the community and FSE. So I wanna focus on that part and make FSE better for us. Tired seems to want to bring people together server owners, admins, devs alike but that is super vague and doesn't really make sense. I'm still communicating and posting in the admin board as frequent as I can to put my thoughts on in the future of the forum for the best of the community. Anyways my time is short right now so I gotta blast. I mean no disrespect against MackCW btw.
[close]

Anyyways. As for what's going on in the community it's NWL that's the big thing happening. Most of you I'm sure are aware of the season going on right now. I haven't really helped at all with the new season because of laptop again but I plan to actually start doing everything a moderator and CR should be doing to help with the league.

I'm more curious of what the community wants at this time. Anything you guys wanna recommend for me to do, or any ideas on how to improve the community leave your thoughts. I know a lot of people did vote for tired and some Moraine so I want to have some of their ideas go on to make the community better in my next term.

I'm going to end this post by leaving a poll here. Expect more polls to come throughout my term.
