    ♦ The German Volunteers [EU/NA] ♦











    Wer sind wir

    Die "German Volunteers" sind ein deutschsprachiger Community-Verbund, bestehend aus Companys aller Truppengattungen und mit Einheiten aus beiden Lagern der kämpfenden Fraktionen.
    Unser Ziel ist es eine gut organisierte aber dennoch auf Spielspaß ausgerichtete Community aufzubauen, welche deutschsprachigen Spielern die Möglichkeit bietet eine zu ihnen passende Company zu finden, oder einfach War of Rights aus der Perspektive einer eingespielten Einheit zu erleben. Viele unsere Companys basieren deshalb auf historischen Vorbildern deutscher Einheiten was sich aus Spitznamen wie "The German Volunteers","Sigels Rifles" oder "German Rangers" ableiten lässt. Organisiert sind wir als loser Verbund der beteiligten Einheiten die gemeinsam in und an der gemeinsamen Community arbeiten und sich gegenseitig unterstützen. Dabei ist jede einzelne Einheit absolut unabhängig und allen anderen gleichgestellt. Regelmäßige Treffen der Companys ermöglichen es uns sich weiter auszutausch und für die Community relevante Entscheidungen auf demokratischer Basis zu treffen. Sollte War of Rights mal nicht im Mittelpunkt stehen, präsentieren wir uns als waschechter Gamingclan wo alle gängigen Spieletitel zu finden sind.

    Neben unseren Bestehenden Einheiten sind wir auch gerne Bereit neu gegründete Companys in unseren Verbund aufzunehmen und ihnen, falls gewünscht, Starthilfe in allen relevanten Belangen zu geben,
    sowie sie an allen unserer Aktionen teilhaben zu lassen.




    About us:

    The German Volunteers is a community of likeminded German companies for the game War of Rights fighting for both Factions,
    which will strife to provide a fun gaming experience for anyone interested in the German participation in the US Civil War.
    All participating companies are either historically mostly german companies, are german based communities
    or have a general interest in building a community around the german side of the Civil War.

    Our Goal is to build a gaming community around these common factors, and to build a Website and Teamspeak for common use.
    We are a loose federation without a rigid rank structure and treat each participating company as equal among all others.
    The community guidelines and rules to be determined and layed out are our overarching way of organising the community,
    with each company being allowed complete freedom in treating internal affairs.





    Was können dir die "German Volunteers" bieten:
    Eigenen Community TeamSpeak & Discord.
    Eine Website mit angeschlossenem Forum.
    Regelmäßige Events mit europäischer oder amerikanischer Beteiligung.
    Eine freundliche und aufgeschlossene Community in deutscher Sprache.
    Mehr als fast 3 Jahre Erfahrung.
    Ein hohes know-how über die deutsche Beteiligung im Bürgerkrieg.
    Einheitlicher Drill mit historischen Formationen, basierend auf einem von der Community erstellten Drillbook.
    Kontakte in die internationale Community von War of Rights.



    Wie kann man uns beitreten

    Nothing but since we decided to Open for both factions we thought it would be the best to Open a thread here also to show the german csa companies that we accept csa companies.

    Our Focus is to Form a german community for WoR and Not only for the USA/CSA

    Not that there ever were very many complete German organizations in the South. After all most of the immigrants coming to America during this time landed in New York City, and not any Southern ports.

    Not saying this is a bad idea ... just saying historically, there weren't many Germans in the Southern forces. Most Germans migrated to the upper mid west ... So the majority of Germans would be yanks only.

    However, that doesn't account for actual real live Germans today playing as Southerners already committed to state organizations.

    Vergesst nicht, der Legions Stab sucht immer nach engagierten Offiziere die den Stab unterstützen und bei der Administration helfen.
    Don´t forget the Legion Staff always searches for new Officers for help and administration !

    Application for Legion Staff:

    Name: DarkTemplar/John McArthur
    Age: 18
    Experience: I have hardly any experience in WoR(beside one week Corporal in 1stLA) but I was 1iC of the infantry bataillion of one of the biggest (and during my command also best) german regiments. Currently I'm Major of the 72nd Highlanders, the best competetive NW regiment in the german community, beside that I overtook many organisation and administration tasks, for example organizing events and making activity list of my members
    characteristics: I have a high self-confidence(can be put to bad and good I think), I'm a rational and trustworthy person and when I want to achieve something I try every possible way until I get it
    Why I want to join: As I mentioned before, I'm a experienced leader and i saw you are searching for staff members who can help you to make the legion run and perform better, or at least as good as it runs now. Another point why I like to be part of your community, is because i know some people from former times . i know it is not much but these are the two simple reasons why I wan to join

    Ty for reading

    Sincerly, me
