Love to sometimes have a nosey on the old forums to still see projects like these still been created for the cavalry regiments, really good job.

Love the descriptions of each regiment as well, a really nice touch.

Good luck with this!

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 fresh air upon 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 production, including a new way to stream matches, several different media contents and a lot of new features.


The tournament will consist in 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 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 with the eighth and last invited team of the Cavalry Champions League, the 16e Régiment de Hussards






Trivia:

For this very last showcase, presenting the 16e Régiment de Hussards, we are going to take a little trip back in time to 2014, as 16e is one of the oldest regiments participating in the CCL.

It all started as a side-project lead by Bamse, who - at the time - was also 3rd in command of the 15th Hussards. In cooperation with the 16e Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne, led at the time by Charles and Carolusrex, Bamse managed to set-up a small cavalry detachment which, little by little, turned into an actual regiment. Way after the infantry side ceased all activity, the 16e Régiment de Hussards continued to participate in NW events, with some eventual breaks in-between the years. Bamse himself would become a full-time leader of the 16e after the 15th merged with Erik and his men from the 7e to make the 4e Hussards.

The competitive side of the 16e is actually greater than what some people may imagine. For their first participation in the CNWL, during Season 2, they were placed in League 2 and finished the tournament with an impressive record of six victories for one defeat only, which was against the eventual league winner, the 73rd. This impressive performance for a young regiment granted them a well-deserved second place and was a promising omen for the regiment. They missed the third season of the CNWL but were attending the next and fourth edition in League 2 once more, where the results were relatively more mixed, yet still very decent. Their last season of the CNWL saw them losing only two matches only, against the 2Lr and the Nr4. In these two occasions, the matches were far from being one-sided affairs, proving that the 16e, despite not being as eager as other regiments to perform at any cost, were perfectly capable of holding their own against arguably bigger names.

That's probably what's the most intriguing about the 16e. The regiment seems to have this capacity to act in a very discrete and modest manner. Despite having survived throughout the years where many other regiments disbanded, the 16e never really seemed to mind being continuously placed in League 2, where some could have argued that after all this time and some very consistent results, they might finally deserve their spot up there regardless of their capacities to be able to fight with the other top regiments. For a regiment which didn't have any particular ambitions at the beginning, they achieved something which is not as easy as it may seem; longevity. On top of that, they also proved that they despite not having the most try-harding people in the game, they could achieve some really strong results and place well throughout years of competition within the cavalry community.




Regimental Leader: Capitaine Simon
Regimental Second in command: Lieutenant Bamse
Regimental Third in command: Sous-Lieutenant Olof




Competitive Results:

- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 2 | 2nd Place - League 2
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 4 | 6th Place - League 2
- Cavalry Napoleonic Wars League - Season 5 | 3rd Place - League 2
 

                                                                                 



And that's where the 16e stands for this CCL. Yes, they might indeed not be the most skilled regiment among all the participants. In fact, some could come to question their capacities to even survive in a league as competitive as the CCL. But the Cavalry Champions League is not a competition where regiments are invited based on their skill only. The wish to improve as a group, to give its very best and represent the cavalry community in a healthy and positive way, is something which is going to be highly valued in this tournament. In that regard, the 16e has proven to be one of the finest representatives of the cavalry community, continuously proving that friendship and fair play are as important as having a high competitive spirit for a regiment.

For quite a while now, Bamse gave the torch to Simon who will be leading the regiment in the CCL. But the 16e won't fight alone. For the competition, they will be able to count on many of the KGL 1st Hussars who have decided to unite their forces with the 16e in order to make sure the regiment can count on a substantial reserve of motivated players.

The 1st Hussar Battalion of the KGL, led by Zauberfisch, Ryan and Quinn, shares many of the aforementioned values which are very important for the 16e and for that reason, we look forward to seeing what they are capable to achieve among the ranks of the 16e. We also believe that while both regiments would have faced many difficulties in this league, would they have played it alone, they will be able to support each other and give the very best of themselves.

There is no questioning the task ahead of them is going to be immense but it is also the very best occasion for players who have been partaking in many tournaments in this cavalry scene, to finally be given the chance to fight among the very bests. No matter the results they will get, this will be one hell of a learning experience for them and something which we hope will strive in their hearts the wish to continue playing at this level of competitiveness.

With the 16e showcase, we conclude the series we started nearly a month ago. I took a lot of pleasure in writing them and I'd like to thanks one more all the regimental leaders who took the time to answers my questions, sometimes on very short timings. Thanks to Saphyro for providing help with these contents and Quinn for the regular proofreading, I really appreciate that from you two. Remember that we are always looking for people in the media team, I will make a proper thread sometime this week to help gathering all the interest, the same way I did for the referees. Given the feedback I got on this thread and on steam, I feel you guys liked these kinds of contents so we'll try our best to provide as many as possible.

The CCL is kicking off tomorrow and while we still have a few things to finish, I'm happy to say we feel pretty ready to get this whole thing started. The week 1 fixture will be posted tonight, so for the night owls, keep an eye on the lookout.

Tonight we celebrated the 4 Years Anniversary (a bit late) of the 5e. For that reason, all the regiments participating in the CCL were present to spend an hour in our company.

I feel truly lucky to have the chance of hosting an event for such a community. Can't wait to start things off.
