Another tournament for the 4e_Erik_Hussars to lose.

Spelling it as 4e_Erik_Hussars is invalid, because "4e" itself already contains an "Erik". "4e_Huss", contrary to what ppl think, doesn't stand for "fourth" (regiment of hussars) but is rather a smart acronym of "for Erik, hussars!". For(4)(e)rik_huss(ars)! Thus, it simultaneously forms a tag, a motto and the regimental creed.

After several months of hard-work, discussions, and planning, we are proud to present the Cavalry Champions League, a new tournament format which we hope will bring a breath of fresh air to the competitive cavalry community. Our staff is composed of experienced and talented members, longtime cavalry players or leaders, with multiple tournaments organisations under their belts. With their combined knowledge and expertise, we intend to provide you with a high-quality tournament, including a new way to stream matches, various media content, and a lot of new features.

The tournament will consist of one league, with all regiments having to fight each other twice, in a home-away system. At the end of the regular season, the regiment with the most points will be awarded the title of CCL winner. Starting from today until the start of the tournament in January, this series of articles will take a detailed look at each of the regiments that have been invited to this competition, revealing them one by one.



Today, we present you with the first invited team of the Cavalry Champions League, the 11e Régiment de Hussards.







Trivia:

The name will certainly ring a bell for most cavalry veterans as the 11e earned its golden letters in 2013/2014, fighting under Griff's leadership and proving to be a formidable force to contain with at the time. Years have passed, and not many would have imagined that from the ashes of this old giant, Lindblom would rebuild the 11e to carry on with its old legacy and try to establish itself once more among the top. This new 11e has kept a lot of its former core, with the notable exception of Griff, who has retired from NW since then.

Taking over as a leader, Lindblom has made quite a solid work so far in building a solid roster composed of different nationalities from across all Europe, most of the 11e members being experienced and skilled cavalrymen who have already proven themselves on an internal level. He can count on Sharkie and Myoui (formerly known as Demme) to help him with the task of making this group of players as competitive as possible and proving that the 11e Régiment de Hussards can compete with the very bests in their first official competition.




Regimental Leader: Capitaine Lindblom
Regimental Second in command: Lieutenant Sharkie
Regimental Third in command: Adjudant-Chef Myoui




Competitive Results:

-

                                                                                 

As mentioned above, the 11e is still a somewhat new regiment and if their roster is undeniably powerful skill wise, their level of team play might not necessarily match the ones of other regiments partaking in the league, at least yet. If such cohesion can be learnt and improved with time, especially by playing official matches, the position of the 11e starting this Champions League will be somewhat particular. With the roster of theirs, they have the right to except being able to contend with the best and even play for the title, but in order to do so, they won't have much room for mistakes in their early matches. This means that their preparation coming into these first matches will have a lot to play in their capacity to compete with their most serious opponents. It is also expected that due to their strong results in practices these last few months, their opponents won't make the mistake of underestimating them, leaving Lindblom's and his guys without the advantage of surprise. But its also a wonderful occasion for them to prove what they are really capable of and make the hard work pay off.

They have all the elements required for success, them being competent leadership, skilled members and a good structure to surround the whole thing. The road to greatness won't be an easy challenge, that's for sure and their strength as a group might be truly tested in this competition. But I am confident the 11e will pass the test with flying colours and will use this tournament as the occasion to establish themselves as one of the very best cavalry regiment in the whole scene.

There might be several typos and/or incoherences in the text, English wise, which I apologize for. If you notice anything, feel free to let me know but I don't think it should prevent you from enjoying the article either way.

With this, you should have a clearer idea of what we want to introduce with the CCL in term of media content.
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.

Today, we present you with the second invited team of the Cavalry Champions League, the 2. Leib-Regiment.







Trivia:

Starting in 2012 under the name 2Lhr (2. Leib-Husaren-Regiment) to later transform into the 2. Leib-Regiment, the German structure - currently lead by Oberst Ipoa - has been an undisputable pilar of the NW community, for years now. One of its battalion, the 2. Leib-Regiment Kavallerie, has carried on with the legacy of its older brother, the former 2. Leib-Husaren-Regiment, being able to fight its way among the best cavalry regiments of the community while also establishing themselves as a model of fair-play and consistency.

Since the CNWL Season 2, they have always participated in the important events of the cavalry community and have been a reliable force to face on the field. The last few years, Adelon has managed to create quite a solid group of German players around him and their capacities were clearly shown during the last edition of the CNWL where they finished at the second place of the League 2, only losing to their German counterparts from the Nr4.

As they say it themselves, the success of the battalion bears the fruit of many years of effort both in the regiment itself and internationally in the community. Motivation, companionship and aiming for a goal have always been very important for them and will certainly continue to be for this first edition of the CCL.




Regimental Leader: Rittmeister Adelon
Regimental Second in command: Oberleutnant IchDie
Regimental Third in command: Leutnant Goodest




Competitive Results:

- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 2 | 7th Place - League 1
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 3 | 3rd Place - League 1
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 4 | 6th Place - League 1
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 5 | 2nd Place - League 2
- Hussars Cup | 5th-8th Place

                                                                                 

One of the undeniable strength of the 2Lr is their team play. While their roster isn't necessarily filled with superstars, their synergy has always been one of their most important assets. The idea of having a group which doesn't shine by its individualities but truly by its cohesion is a strong backbone any regiments should be able to rely on. However, in a league consisting of the very best regiments of the cavalry scene, one may come to wonder what the 2Lr will be capable to achieve. If their lack of fire-power wasn't necessarily detrimental in the League 2 of the last CNWL, it may become slightly more problematic in a competition such as the CCL, where every match will count and where most of their opponents will consistently be able to display a roster consisting in a majority of extremely deadly players. 

If the 2Lr certainly won't figure among the top favourites of this competition, they still have a potential for surprise, would their opponent make the mistake of underestimating them. Several years of fighting against the best should have brought the 2Lr enough experience to know how to exploit any breaches left open for them and upset arguably stronger rosters. It surely is going to be 14 intense weeks for Adelon and his men but the 2Lr comes in prepared and with no intention to play second fiddle. You are warned.

Of course it's not filled with superstars. It's filled with legends.

Starting from today until the start of the tournament in January, this series of articles will take a detailed look at each of the regiments that have been invited to this competition, revealing them one by one.



Today, we present you with the third invited team of the Cavalry Champions League, the Husaren-Regiment Nr.4







Trivia:

The Husaren-Regiment Nr4 was created in July 1st 2017 by Felix. In a time where the German community was already heavily represented by two famous regiments, the 2Lr and Nr6, the Nr4 managed to accomplish the difficult task of establishing themselves as a serious representative of their country among the cavalry community. In that sense, the Nr4 followed the most successful formula which can be found for an NW regiment. They started from the bottom and took things steps by steps, spent countless hours training newcomers, forming a core of dedicated and skilled players and gradually facing stronger opponents one after the other.

If the theory is good, things can often look different in practice where it takes a lot of motivation and strong-will to not give-up in the making of the regiment. You lose players, you lose battles. You question yourself about the decisions taken and the ones to come. Out of 10 regiments created, 8 often don't make the cut and disband after a few months. But the Nr4 wasn't meant to be one of these. Slowly but surely, they asserted themselves, gathering more important and solid wins against stronger regiments. The recruits of yesterday turned into the veterans of today and the first ambitions for success started to appear.




Regimental Leader: Rittmeister Felix
Regimental Second in command: Leutnant Rapez
Regimental Third in command: Wachtmeister Bongo




Competitive Results:

- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 5 | 1st Place - League 2
- Hussars Cup | 5th-8th Place

                                                                                 

For their first participation in the CNWL, last season, the Nr4 proved to the whole community what they were made of. They outclassed every single one of their opponent in League 2, losing a grand total of 11 rounds in 9 confrontations on top of the final victory. Their run in the Hussar Cup was a bit less satisfactory but the format wasn't giving much room for mistakes and they were defeated by the 8th Hussars which eventually made it to the grand final against the 4e Hussards. 

The CCL is going to be the occasion for the Nr4 to confront themselves once more against the very best regiments of the cavalry scene, in an official competition, but this time in a bigger format which should truly test their endurance. I would argue that the position of the Nr4 at the beginning of the tournament is not the hardest, neither the easiest. They definitely won't be expected as the big favourites of the event but their group possess some undeniable qualities which should give them the possibilities to give any other regiments in the league, no matter their strength, a run for their money. Their results during the first weeks of the competition should give an accurate picture of their true capacities and I look forward to seeing them perform in the CCL as they earned their place here through hard work and consistency. If they can definitely reach a mid-place finish without too much trouble, the last CNWL gave them a taste in gold which they might not want to forget all that soon.
