Community Chronicles

The tales of a guy with maybe a bit too much free times on his hands.


This is rather simple. For quite a while (since I involved myself in the NW community), I always wanted to relate all those events that only a handful got to play but that so many more would have loved to play in. The wikipedia thingy was such a great idea but sadly got left a bit behind for some reasons. This is a similar idea but rather than creating a whole website for it or even a wikipedia page, which I personally don't feel confident with, I simply decided to make my own topic and tell stories.

It can be anything, important LBs I've watched, refeered, played, Gfs Matches, Big Events, Nation Cups matches, anything. It will or won't interest you, I can't guarantee anything, but with the game being on its last days/weeks/months/year(s?), I doubt there is a more appropriate time for that. I might talk about some old regiments, current ones, give my opinion about it, my personal experience with them, could talk about players aswell. The whole idea is simply to narrate 5 years of this amazing experience which was playing NW for me. On many, many, many subjects, there will be several people capable to relate those events way better than I do, with more details, more accuracy or vocabulary so I encourage them, would they've time, to give their own experience of it. That's the whole idea of such a thread.

I don't pretend my opinion is better than anyone else on his forums cause it truly isn't. I don't pretend the idea is a good one, and finally I don't pretend what I will say is interesting. It will be up to you guys to judge of that. But in the worse case scenario, if you don't like it, just say it, and explain me how you would improve it. Eventually, if you hate the idea, just don't comment, it will die on its own from the lack of interest, it has been proved in the past. I'm not omniscient, stories I relate will be given from my own perspective and my perspective only. Some stuff will be accurate, some a bit less, some will be even wrong but hopefully someone will point them out so they can get fixed. My english isn't that great but it should be understandable for anyone who knows the basics. I'm always happy to get my stuff proof-read by people willing to do it.

Finally, I don't want to make this drama making. We all got different opinions, you may disagree with some stuff I will say, you actually will disagree with stuff I say but that's what the topic is about, discuss, exchange, share your experience and best moments on NW. Anyone, no matter who they're is is free to come and write something as long as they actually put a minimum effort behind it and remain respectful. If you respect those really simply rules, I will be glad adding your stuff to the OP. If you come here to bitch only, then refrain yourself cause you will be wasting your time, honestly. I'm playing since 2011-2012, all the tricks you could come up with, I've done them before.

Also if you except me to rank people, regiments or LBs bewteen them, then you actually got the whole thing wrong. So I'm just gonna leave it here so its said once for all, you know it and we can jump to something more important ; the greatest regiments of all times to my eyes are the 91st, 92nd, 8lr, 14e, 17e & Nr24 (in no particular order). The greatest player, Clash & JackieChan. The greatest community members? Actually don't have enough time nor space on this topic to quote all of them. Lets get to what matters.

cus he's a fuckin sweaty team gb overwatch player
I won some things, I came 2nd and 3rd in lots of things, I guess I did some other shit too........ I'm also an FSE legend, probably most commonly described as a cunt. If the shit I do doesn't make sense in your head, well fuck you because it makes sense in mine.

Which i did, against known and reputed player, some of them considered legend, such as, Mandarin, Ledger, Tiberias, Herishey, Hokej, Troister, Axiom, Evanovic, Stark, Eddie, Jammo, Bagins, Freddie, Python. I didn't had a good relationship with most of them, but i congratulate them for what they did, and i had pleasure facing them.

That moment when people consider Jackie and Clash better than Evan and Eddie. #Wat

Great idea, though. #Evan, Eddie and Axiom all time best.

we all know Evan had delays in melee
One of the best side blockers in the game. Often reffered as 'the Sideblock King'.

First of all, great idea making this thread Tardet. Furthermore it might even be an idea of splitting the thingy with the best regiment of all time up in two parts (NW & MM). Concerning NW I have to say that the 91st is in my opinion the best regiment this community has ever seen (I might be a bit biased on that one :P). If we consider the MM times as a seperat part of this communities history I would even add the 13e to the list. Back at that time they were undoubtedly THE best regiment and Achilles was such a beast (of course anyone else in that regiment was aswell but it's quite hard to mention everyone of them so I'll just stick with Achilles), but that's just my opinion. Unfortunatley they split up once NW came out and we didnt have the chance to prove ourselves in this chapter of the history.

Player-wise I'd consider JackieChan to be the best this communities has seen. I bet some of you will agree on this with me, although of course there are plenty of other excellent players who've already been mentioned in this thread before but Jackie just stands out in my personal opinion.

Concerning some memorable moment in the NW history, I remember that once there were some LB's where the community kinda reenacted historical Linebattles such as Waterloo. But unfortunatley I don't own any screenshots, videos or anything like that of these battles. Would be cool if someone could help me or rather Tardet to fill this chapter in the NW chronicles.

Agreed with everything you said Snowwi, thanks for the support, and glad you shared your opinion. :)

I personally played a bit of MM (started with MM_Prussia5) if I recall correctly but I wasn't very involved in the community at that time, (FSE didn't even existed, was all on TW), only joined the IVe Corps when MM_Russia was released, my first real steps in the community. I of course heard about the 13e, which I believe Evanovic and Oldy (Old Guard) were in? Not quite sure about that one, I think Mem was there too, Evanovic also? Well you see, my memories isn't excelent so I would have quite a hard time at relating the great events of that area, as I consider myself as MM player but clearly not a specialist nor a veteran.

A regiment which not many people remember of but who still had an amazing run (sadly a bit short compared to the 91st or 92nd) was the 15e, lead by Hekko, with Carolus, Ward, Crackman, Evan and so many great and talented players in there. Clash was there too, and honestly seeing them playing in LBs was such a pleasure but again, I don't know that well so I believe some other players would be more qualified then I'm to speak about them.

The historical LBs I had the chance to personally play in where great but sadly there were not enough of this. I remember playing with the 75e on the Waterloo Map, but it wasn't necesseraly historically based. Still a really great event overall.

One of thing we actually did though was that we organized with the 75e some scenarized events, and the results of one weekly LB would have an impact on what would happen next week, a sort of mini-campain. We even had the 8lr at the first events, was rather cool.


Sadly the little historical/fictional background at the begining is in french.  :-\



I've already choosed a little event I wish to relate, mainly cause the background with it is quite interesting but in order to encourage people to read it, I'd like to get some sort of nice formating hence why I will probably only post it tonight or tomorow. It will feature the IVe Corps d'Armée Française, the 14pk, the 8lr, the 60th, and the 75e. Hope you guys will like it, personally one of the greatest event I played in.

Some of my more enjoyable tournament moments;

This has to be my favorite comeback that I've played in, we were being dominated by the Spartan based team but swapping out one player (soz Harrier) seemed to bring it back for us and everything clicked again;

https://youtu.be/XobaFCJTVmU?t=3m48s

In this tournament TFFO only lost 3 rounds the entire tournament as well, which has to be some kinda record beating FrenchTouch in the finals 7-1;



Lastly this tournament we made another great comeback against a German team, forgot their name but we were like Von something or another (we went 5-2 down and won).

Another old video I found, Axiom gets 16 kills in this round and clutches a 8v1 (minute 7:21).
