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 fourth invited team of the Cavalry Champions League, the 1er Régiment de Cuirassiers






Trivia:

In a community vastly dominated by hussar regiments, it has not always been easy for other regiments playing a different class to establish themselves in competitive structures and play on an equal footing with their peers. But, little by little, despite being a minority and having to deal with the constant criticism coming with their playstyle, the heavy cavalry started to truly become a formidable force to contend with as well as making a name for themselves in the community. Today, its finest representative within the NW cavalry scene has undoubtedly become the 1er Régiment de Cuirassiers.

The 1er Régiment de Cuirassiers was created on the 27th March 2018 from a merger of two other regiments; the 7e Régiment de Cuirassiers, led by Squall, and the 1er Régiment de Carabiniers, under Dragonking's leadership. Such a merger was made possible thanks to the help of Balian - leading the 9e Régiment of Hussards at the time - who contributed to help with the discussions between both regiments. In a pre-CNWL context where medium-sized regiments were not given many chances to compete against bigger structures, this merger was a good opportunity for both regiments to join forces, under a two-headed leadership having equal prerogatives and sharing a similar vision. Merging both regiments also heavily contributed to increasing their roster strength and despite not having much experience in regimental leagues, the 1erRC was given the chance to play in the 1st League of the CNWL - Season 5, with everything yet to prove.

Their performance in that season was a testimony to their growth potential as the 1erRC would manage to reach a well-deserved 6th place, their most notable success being that they were the only regiment to keep the 14. Pułk Kirasjerów - the eventual league winner - in check, whilst also having strong results such as the one versus the 5e Régiment de Hussards or fighting a nail-biting match against the Husaren-Regiment Nr.6.




Regimental Leader: Lieutenant Squall
Regimental Second in command: Adjudant Pierre-Theillet
Regimental Third in command: Maréchal des Logis Thorvic




Competitive Results:

- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 5 | 6th Place - League 1

                                                                                 

Since the last CNWL, the 1erRC had an arrival of recruits (including some polish members from the 14pk) but also continued training their men. If they were not given the chance to partake in the Hussars Cup, their recent performance in the 5v5 tournament organized by the 2Lr showed that the 1erRC has no intention of slowing down, as they remained undefeated throughout the whole competition. Despite Dragonking's recent departure, the regiment is still in the good hands of Squall, Pierre-Theillet and Thorvic, and there is no doubt that the 1erRC has never looked so dangerous as at the dawn of this competition. With the combination of both excellent team play and skilled individual players, the 1erRC is no longer just a regiment able to upset bigger names, and provide some strong results. They have become a real contender for the title and will be a constant threat for any of the other favourites. It will require lots of patience, and very methodical plays to break through the 1erRC's shells and make them bite the dust. If most of the other regiments are now used to play against heavy cavalry, it doesn't make any less of a challenge to find a way to consistently beat them.

Whether you like it or not, 2018 has been a bright year for heavy cavalry. A CNWL title, several 5v5 medals and many other strong performances in cavalry tournaments. This new year will be the occasion to see if such dominance can be accentuated even further or if the hussar regiments will be able to claim their supremacy back. It all starts with this CCL and without a doubt, you are in for a treat.

Some might realise that this showcase is significantly longer than previous ones. There is obviously no favouritism, I ask every leader before writing about their regiment, in order to make sure my information is correct and accurate. In the 1erRC's case, Squall (with the help of Thorvic I think) provided us with a lot of background information about the regiment's history. I found it extremely relevant so I wanted to give it credits by using as much of this information as possible.

On top of that, I try to give every showcase a 'special' touch to make it unique compared to the previous one(s). For the 1erRC, I wanted to highlight their specificity of being a minority among the competitive community.

Big thanks to Quinn for proofreading this article, I really take a lot of pleasure in writing these and I hope you do as much in reading them. We have four regiments announced, four more to go!
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.

Our staff is composed of experienced and talented members, longtime cavalry players or leaders, with multiple tournaments organisations under their belts.

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 article will take a detailed look at the regiments which have been invited to this competition, revealing them one by one.



Today, we present you the fifth invited team of the Cavalry Champions League, the 4e Régiment de Hussards






Trivia:

In any competitive community, storylines are often built on legacies. In order to be the best, you have to beat the best. But when several different regiments end-up winning major tournament titles - and with it, start building their own legacies, how do you distinguish one from the other? The context in which said victories are achieved obviously matters, but there is probably one factor which sets a regiment or team above the rests: consistency.
When it comes to the consistency shown in displaying excellence on the battlefield, the 4e Régiment de Hussards have always set themselves apart from the rest of the cavalry community, with the records they set for themselves having largely exceeded the NW sphere by now.

The story goes back in 2015. After serving for years among the 7e Régiment de Hussards and winning the first edition of the CNWL with it, Erik, Sukesa, and a few other members of the 7e Hussards join forces with the 15th King's Hussars Regiment, led at the time by Archer and Felix. Their new project has a name, the 4e Régiment de Hussards.

Very quickly, it became obvious the 4e had a potential which had never been seen before in the cavalry community. Erik and Sukesa were some of the heaviest contributors to the 7e's success, and with them came their French flair that they had largely developed among the ranks of their previous regiment. Coming from the 15th was a large roster composed of skilled and experienced members, who had been performing extremely well in the previous CNWL (being the 7e's most serious competitor) and undoubtedly contributed to the strong start from the 4e Hussards, with Archer leading and Erik as his second.

A few months later, Archer decided to step down from his role and Erik took the leadership over. The 4e Hussards, which had overwhelming success since its start, definitely took off. They claimed the title of the CNWL Season 2 with unbelievable supremacy, making some of the biggest names at the time feel completely lost against them. The Nr3 was the only regiment able to make their encounter against the 4e a close match, but it wouldn't prevent the 4e to claim their first gold trophy, with an impressive clean sheet of seven victories and zero defeats.

Far from stopping there, the 4e would follow up by taking two other major titles - the third and fourth editions of the CNWL - asserting its dominance on the cavalry community in the best of manners. Their competitive record in and out of tournaments is certainly one of the most impressive seen in the all of Warband’s competitive scenes, not losing a single match for more than three years straight, across eighty official matches. The 4e's competitive legacy was also built on the numerous rivalries it had against other cavalry regiments, one of the most famous being against the 5e Hussards. At the time, the regiment was led by two of Erik and Sukesa's former teammates from the 7e, Exofrance and Peponi, and because of that the 5e versus 4e matches always took a particular flavour, especially since the 5e was also one of the strongest regiments at the time. But while the 5e managed to keep the 4e Hussards in check on two occasions, the following re-match (acting as a decider for the league victory) turned in the 4e’s favour, confirming once more that they were the most formidable force the cavalry community had ever seen.




Regimental Leader: Capitaine Erik
Regimental Second in command: Lieutenant Sukesa
Regimental Third in command: Maréchal des Logis Chef Skittles




Competitive Results:

- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 2 | 1st Place  - League 1
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 3 | 1st Place  - League 1
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 4 | 1st Place  - League 1
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 5 | 2nd Place - League 1
- Hussars Cup - Season 1 | 1st Place  

                                                                                 



But such legacies rarely last forever.  During the fifth edition of the CNWL and despite a near perfect run until their very last match, the 4e was sourly defeated by the Polish from the 14pk, led by Zahari. While giving heavy cavalry its first major title, the members from the 14pk not only took the trophy off the 4e's hands, they also stopped the most formidable streak ever witnessed in competitive Warband history.

Such a story could have stopped there. On a game constantly getting older, the 4e's defeat could have marked the end of their unique legacy. But as the saying goes, legends never really die.

In a context of post-CNWL where heavy cavalry dominance was discussed among a community majorly consisting of hussar regiments, the Hussar Cup was hosted to answer some expectations carried by said community. It was the perfect opportunity for the 4e to revitalise themselves, and after a nail-biting series against the 8th Hussars (which would go down as one of the most intense NW grand-finals) the 4e enjoyed renewed success.

Coming into this CCL as one of the strongest and oldest powerhouses in the cavalry scene, and with the growing success of the 11er, 1erRC, andNr6; the 4e Hussards will certainly have their heart set on wiping the slate clean. Yes, the 14pk proved that they could be beaten, but they still remain one of the heaviest favourites coming into this competition. This might be their biggest challenge to overcome yet, proving that they can come back and dominate the scene once more. With their roster built on experienced and talented members - most of their core with countless tournaments under their belts - they have built something which has never been seen before in the game, and they certainly don't plan on stopping here.

After years of staying at the very top and facing the inevitable criticisms coming with it, the 4e also proved to their detractors that the regiment wasn't only set on having the biggest trophy cabinet possible. They also became a community, a real group of people caring for one another. To those who doubted that the 4e would survive the initial hype coming with its creation, they can pride themselves with a continued activity for nearly four years. To those who doubted their capacity to stick together through defeat, the 4e and its members have shown impressive resilience and willpower after the last CNWL, one of the reasons they are still here today.

In this competition, many will be looking at the 4e as one of the biggest obstacles to overcome. However, only few will realise what it took for them to get here, and how they truly gave the term champions a real and immutable meaning.
