The 19te Prussian Infantry - Est. 2011 [International]
« on: August 30, 2017, 09:26:03 pm »


19te Prussian Infantry


Welcome
   
       
        The 19te Prussian Infantry was formed by our first Hauptmann, Joshly, and a small number of members in April 2011.  They, being veterans of other Mount and Musket regiments, wanted to create an atmosphere of respect, fun, and entertainment while playing MM.  They achieved this by focusing on using great teamwork and tactics while playing the game.  Two years later, our goals remain the same – to provide that same sense of comradery in and out of NW, Holdfast, and into the other games we play.  Our rank structure promotes a meaningful, but not overdone, organization and couples with our focus on using historical line tactics.

        We boast over six years of experience, and over this time, the regiment is anything but average.  We consistently welcome new players and focus on bringing gentlemen in that mesh with our attitudes and ideals.  Many of those members have stayed and remain here to this day.  Rank advancement is possible – we have no set limit for any ranks, and take those that can showcase their capabilities in and out of game, and have shown dedication to the regiment over time.  We respect and ask that all new members respect everyone in this community, and we endeavor to achieve this goal daily.  In addition to our consistency in Napoleonic Wars, we play a wide variety of games and encourage members play together.  We have members that span multiple time zones, so in the event you’re staying up late, we are certain that you will have someone to play with!  Our current list of games changes consistently, so if you are even remotely interested in playing with us, please contact one of the recruiting liaisons below!






Joining

     There is a simple process for any and all interested in joining the 19te.  When you go to our website, http://19te.enjin.com, you’ll see a “Join Here” tab.  Press that and fill out the forms. Please be mindful of the general rules at the top of the application when you apply.  Although we have fun, we ask that all members follow the rules and adhere to them.  If you have any questions or would like to play with us to get to know how we operate, please add one of the many Recruiting Liaisons on Steam, shown below.  Furthermore, our TeamSpeak is 172.246.118.15.  We use that in conjunction with Steam to coordinate events and trainings.  We ask that all members try to stay in and socialize with our members.

Roles

Another way that our members participate in the 19te is through applying and playing in “roles” during linebattles. We have two – “Pfunder”, or our artillery, and “Hussar”, our cavalry.  Instead of most regiments that have separate ranks for these special roles, we designate our members by the addition of a extra three letters: "Pfd" and "Hsr".  These members have been tried and true in the 19te, they must be competent of all formations as a soldier, and they must show initiative to lead or coordinate, if necessary.  After a prospect applies, they go through a similar process to be accepted.  After being accepted, they will have the opportunity to coordinate trainings, 1v1s (Hussars), and play in a specialty role during line battles.  The officer corps has the right to determine who plays the specialty roles at the onset of events, in an effort to expose potential prospects.





Ranks



(Rkt):  A Rekrut is the 19te’s entry position of the regiment, the member has officially passed the applicant stage into joining the ranks. The person will be promoted to Soldat when they demonstrate a good understanding of our formations and regiment in its entirety.

(Sdt): A Soldat is an official soldier of the 19te. Soldats have a basic understanding of formations and the organization of the regiment. They are known my some members and come to events consistently.

(Gmr):  A Gemeiner is classified as an exceptional Soldat who have progressed through their learning of basic commands and are working on understanding the organization of the regiment better, taking leadership in a pinch, and learning the more complex formations.  These men differ from Gefreiters in that they still have things to learn, but are well on their way.
(Gfr):  Gefreiters are members that understand all ranks and, for the most part, ranking structure.  They rarely falter and demonstrate their understanding by taking commanding positions when all officers are down.  These men are allotted opportunities such as having a designation at this point of their career.


(Ofr):  Obergefreiters are our most seasoned soldiers.  They conduct themselves without flaw, know all formations and the organization of the regiment, and are the perfect example for newer members.  This prestige rank is for only those members who have shown themselves worthy of such an honor.

(Uffz):  Unteroffiziers are newly-commissioned officers.  They look after the lower ranking members by ensuring they follow orders, display good conduct, and maintain discipline within the ranks.  They are beginning their career in leading the line, conducting trainings, and assisting in general administrative items.  They are also seen as a point of contact for recruitment, events, or other items that newer members may be interested in learning.

(Fw):  Feldwebels are our senior NCOs.  They look after the Unteroffiziers and assist the Leutnants with administrative items.  They are trusted officers that lead trainings and linebattles, assist in creating events, and typically are entrusted with much more responsibility, should they be interested (e.g., forum management).  Furthermore, they typically handle the unruly or ill-disciplined members, if necessary.
(Lt):  Leutnants are the first executive rank in the officer corps.  They lead the administrative duties such as linebattles, forum/website management, relations with other regiments, and are a standard of our core values in the regiment.  They work together with the other officer corps to hand out tasks as necessary and continually think of ideas to better serve the regiment.

(Olt):  The Oberleutnant is the “Lead Leutnant”.  Instead of being second-in-command he is the chosen Leutnant to guide the rest.  The Oberleutnant is well respected inside and outside of the regiment and will work in tandem with the Hauptmann to make decisions and follow through on actions.

(Hptm): The Hauptmann is the leader of the regiment, who gathers the opinions of other officers and, though not being a “tyrannical position,” ultimately has the final say and runs the show.

Requirements

1.   Members will be respectful at all times. This means getting along with every player - public or not. We do not tolerate discrimination or malicious insults. If you are to have an argument, do it in a respectful and professional manner. We will take pride in our public image and will remove any who choose to stain it.

2.   Members will always play fair and respectfully. We do not tolerate actions such as cheating, dragging rounds out, fake surrendering, and Teamkilling. Teamkilling is forbidden in every form except a genuine accident.

3.   Members will follow orders when they are given, by officers and Admins alike. We do not have time to listen what you think is best after the orders are given. Instead, remember it or write it down. We will have a time and place for suggestions. If you are instructed by an Admin to do anything, you will abide.

4.   Members are required to use TeamSpeak for Trainings and Linebattles (English only during events). We also encourage the use of TeamSpeak for any games you might be playing, but understand if you want to play alone.

5.   Although it is not a rule, it is good conduct to inform an officer when you know you cannot attend or will be late to a training or event. This can be done through a post in the forums, a message on steam, or a simple chat on TeamSpeak.




Applications
   

We encourage all prospective members to apply on our website. On there are calendars that display event times, friendly conversations, and tons of other things we use to manage the regiment. It is a great place with many tools and our official roster.

If you are interested in joining you can apply on the website, found by clicking the Prussian eagle below. Please fill out the application it directs you to. Remember to provide as much information in the application as possible, with more information it is easier to understand what you are looking for as a player. We will be instantly notified upon its submission and providing we are not busy, we can take a good look at it.

*[As of Dec. 15, 2012] After your application has been evaluated, the officer corps will keep track of the events you've participated in. You can see the applicant list with the event number in the "Officer and Help" Teamspeak channel.  After 7 events, you will be evaluated based on your performance and personality, and the officer corps will make a decision.*

19te Regimental History



The Gaming Community

2011 – Humble Beginnings and Future Leaders/Relationships
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Joshly
Executive Officer(s):  Oberleutnant Ryan, Oberleutnant Steve
Founding Members:  Mar94, Decibit, Deafbee, Steve



Founding and Success in Mount and Musket: Battalion
        In April 2011, Joshly formed the 19te from the few members that went with him from a mainly European Prussian regiment that participated in Mount&Musket events.  Over the next few months, the 19te strived to create a regiment that had – up until this point – never been done before by founding itself on the core values of integrity, sportsmanship, and fun inside and outside of events. The likes of Patriot (current Hauptmann), Moldplayer, Roble, and Shadow (current Leutnants), and many other gentlemen began during this year. The 19te saw a surge of attendance and prowess under the leadership of Joshly and Oberleutnants Ryan and Steve (at different times) at the helm.  In both the North American and European fronts, the 19te participated in numerous linebattles, 1v1s, and competitive events. These engagements exemplified the 19te’s commitment towards conduct, proper formations, and strong melee background.


Prussian Army
        During 2011, the 19te grew close with another regiment, the 1. Ostpreussische Infanterie (1stEPI), led by Hauptmann Argos and later Major Avoric. They consistently ran together in trainings and events as 2011 wore on. This friendship would soon blossom into a close relationship with the 1stEPI, which stands the test of time and games. They founded one of the oldest armies in the game – The Prussian Army. Founded on principles of striking a balance between unity and independence, the 19te, FK, and 1stEPI created an army that was organized on democratic rules and principles, and not through hierarchy. Both the 19te and the 1stEPI remain members today. The units trained together and routinely had discussions to solve common problems. Both regimental tactics and the North American Hardcore linebattle rules were created during the fledgling months.


2012 – Transition, Change, and Progression
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Joshly
Executive Officer(s):  Oberleutnant Steve, Oberleutnant Hippy, Oberleutnant Shadow, Oberleutnant Oda


In Review
        The year of 2012 was certainly a time of transition for the 19te. Three Oberleutnants took and then passed on the position to the next in line. During this time, there was much growth in the regiment. The 19te continued to build on their foundations of good conduct in and out of linebattles, focus on fun and organization, and grew upon the community the 19te created. The 19te expanded into the other areas of the gaming community in Mount and Blade with games such as Mount&Gladius, Full Invasion, and North&South, to name a few. The 19te also grew into a gaming community. Part of the growth as a regiment was due to playing other games and bringing in members that were veterans of other communities. The executive officers saw to it and instilled a sense of community responsibility not seen in other groups today. The 19te set a trend towards acting just as disciplined in as well as out of game.

Pfunder and Husaren
        In early 2012, the 19te added new detachments to the company. These detachments gave veteran members the opportunity to focus on other areas of the battle other than line infantry. These "Pfunden" (Artillery) and "Husaren" (Cavalry) comprised of veteran members (Sdt+ - gradual change to Gfr+), many of whom still play today in some capacity. The 19te became well known for their artillery capability under the leadership of Joshly and the cavalry benefited from the contributions of Hippy and other members. Our current Hauptmann, Patriot, currently serves as the most veteran Hussar. Our stability at Pfunder has now been found again under the leadership of Joshly and Aussie (Roble's currently on LOA).

Mount & Blade: Napoleonic Wars
        The 19te made a smooth transition to the NW playing-field. Armed with more members than could be handled, the regiment started up much more advanced orders such as “fire and advance”, “cavalry blob”, and the ever-famous “goose wheel” became 19te-staples. Many events stayed the same, and the 19te handled the changes by adapting to the new developments, and remaining true to the foundations made in 2011.


2013 – Consistency
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Joshly
Executive Officer(s): Oberleutnant Oda, Oberleutnant Patriot


In Review
        2013 was a mainly consistent year for the 19te.  Joshly continued on a prolonged hiatus, and Oda continued working various events and bringing the 19te into other areas of the gaming community (Heroes & Generals, North & South, etc.).  Oda continued leading until the summer where he stepped down, and Patriot took over as Olt of the 19te.  The 19te continued on the trek of maintaining, but "hairline fractures" emerged.  Lower attendance and strife amongst the community began to simmer, and the 19te began a slow, but certain decent.  It wasn't until 2014 that the community (and leadership) began making changes.


2014 – The Change of the Guard, Age of the Leutnants, and Resurgance
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Joshly, Hauptmann Patriot
Executive Officer(s):  Oberleutnant Patriot, Oberleutnant Nixa || Leutnant Aussie, Leutnant Roble, Leutnant Shadow


In Review
       2014 marked a turn-around year for the 19te - a lot of change, revamp, and revision came.  Some of the below pivotal events brought major change to the 19te, and showed that, in the celebration of the third anniversary, that the 19te was in for the "long haul".  Of note, Joshly stepped down as Hauptmann and introduced Patriot as the new leader of the 19te.  The change in position brought in Nixa as the last Oberleutnant (currently vacant) for the 19te to date.  After Nixa stepped down, Leutnants became the "council" of decision makers; men such as Aussie, Roble, and Rapier led the majority of discussions.  Shadow returned from a hiatus in the summer of 2014.  Lastly, based on the decisions of the core players during the fracture taking place just before summer, the 19te saw a spike in attendance and overall activity.  The fracture proved the 19te was stronger and able to handle situations.


2015 – Expansions and "New Blood"
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Patriot
Executive Officer(s):  Leutnant Moldplayer, Leutnant Aussie, Leutnant Roble, Leutnant Shadow, Leutnant Mustakraskish


In Review
       2015 was the year of the resurgence of the EU community.  Following an uptick of new EU members, the 19te picked up an additional training day and a weekday event to solidify their growth.  This year also saw the rise of a number of promising EU leaders such as Eternal, who would become an officer the following year.  There was also experimentation in the Oceanic community, where the 19te participated in an Oceanic event in anticipation of further expansion within the community.  This experiment was later dropped due to various difficulties with availability, though as always, Oceanic applications were always welcome!


2016 – Retirement of Old Friends, and the Downsizing of the Leutnants
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Patriot
Executive Officer(s):  Leutnant Moldplayer, Leutnant Mustakraskish, Leutnant GunMan1942


In Review
TBD


2017– TBD
Commanding Officer:  Hauptmann Patriot
Executive Officer(s):  Leutnant Moldplayer, Leutnant GunMan1942


In Review
TBD
