This weekly line battle is open to all public players and NW regiments by invitation only
. The server will be passworded, and only public players in TeamSpeak will receive the password once the event has begun. Pubs should join the "Public Regiment" channel unless told otherwise by an admin. Public players who arrive late and miss the short training period may be denied the password. Regiment leaders will receive the password via TeamSpeak in the Line Battle Administration channel. One skirmisher, cavalry, engineer, and artillery unit will be assigned per faction. We will be playing best of three rounds on three different maps.Please familiarize yourself with the new set of rules for this event. Players will be expected to know and follow the rules if they attend.
If your regiment is invited, and you would like to apply for a special position (artillery, cavalry, skirmishers, or engineers), send me a PM in the following format:
-Officers and NCOs are responsible for enforcing the event rules within their ranks. Failure to do so will result in the entire regiment being punished.
-All regiments must agree that they understand and intend to follow the event rules before they are allowed to attend.
-If either side has 3 soldiers or less alive, the rules governing combat may be ignored in order to expedite an end to the round.
-Postponing defeat will result in an automatic slay.
Guidelines for Infantry and Skirmishers:
-Lines of more than 12 soldiers must fight in two ranks.
-Skirmisher units may never exceed 15 soldiers.
-Soldiers should only fire their muskets while in a properly spaced line formation, or risk being slain with no warning.

-Infantry should have less than 1 space between them
-Light Infantry (skirmisher w/ bayonet) may have 3 spaces between them
-Riflemen may have up to 5 spaces between them
-Skirmishers may crouch at any time, but Infantry may only crouch if they are in the front of a two (or more) rank line.
-If only 2 men remain in a line, they must immediately join a friendly line OR charge directly toward their enemy into melee
Guidelines for Cavalry:
