I initially joined the OGN and then transferred to the 1stEPG. After some time, I enjoyed my time in the 1stEPG, wishing the best to all old members and best of luck to the 1stEPG's similar regiment, the 1stEPI. After the 1stEPG, I had comings and goings until I had a group I could stick with. The next regiment was the best tight-knit group I enjoyed and still enjoy today. Even though it no longer has a regimental aspect to the group for the foreseeable future. However, before the next state of the game's community of new arrivals, I would assume my group would receive only uncalled for flak due to ignorance and judging a book by its cover. Later on, I also tried out a more serious regiment of the MoskovGren but I found the super-serious-as-can be atmosphere wasn't for me. I used to merc here and there a bit more, and still will rarely do for groups I enjoy interacting with.
Overall, I enjoy a 'just right' balance of common sense and having fun. I strongly dislike teamkilling randomly during an event, even usually refraining from the slaughter at end of rounds that people teamkill their group until map change or event is over. I would never kick in a line moving out, and I did not appreciate it. Kicking in Napoleonic Wars DLC would usually accost the player for 10% of their health, it was ridiculous. Was also hardly useful in combat unless there was a wide opening moment, like when an enemy is standing still while blocking. So when most of the time you are standing in a line trading musket fire, if you get hit, and some troll would decide to kick you in that state, it could potentially kill you. Or even a random horse bump on the field. Or kicking during sieges, when you are trying to actually defend the fort. I've had my own experience of people ruining others' enjoyment of the game on both ends, but I retain a strong sense of discipline and patience.
