    Batallion Drill Event by "The German Volunteers"








    As a community of companies interested in the historical approach, we have now taken a look at the battalion level. Now that we've completed the School of Company, we'd like to take a similar approach to the battalion level. We are looking for a compromise between the historical drill and what is possible in the game.






    We would like to have a battalion drill every 2 months.
    Our goal is to acquire the School of Battalion and to implement it in the game in a usable way. We are still at the beginning of our small project and will start in the new year. The drill will be organized by the TGV and led by Colonel Richter and Captain Frank.
    For each date one or two new commands will be selected from the drillbook, which will then be trained in the drill.
    Before a drill there will be an instruction for all officers, a kind of theory, so that during the drill there won't be too long waiting times for the privates.
    By limiting it to one or two commands per appointment, it is possible to take a close look at them and repeat what you have already learned. It is primarily a new task for the officers, since they have to master both drill books (Company, Battalion).
    It's interesting for the private ones, because many players are organized to play a batallion. We attach a lot of importance to the fact that little is confessed, we move a lot and also a lot of shit to offer the players a lot.
    In the debriefing criticism and alternative approaches can be discussed, if the execution of an order should prove to be difficult.
    The drills are alternated between the Union camp and the Confederation camp.



    We invite all companies to participate as long as they meet the following requirements:
    1. disciplined behaviour in voice and text chat. We want to convey an authentic feeling.
    2. basic knowledge from the School of the Company:
    - Maneuvering in 2 ranks (advancing in the line, column)
    - wheeling
    - Fire orders (by company, ranks, files)
    3. respect for other companies and the organizers

    not necessary, but helpful:
    - by company into line
    - on the right by files into line

    if you need any help feel free to ask


    each company has in some way developed its own style in implementing the drills. we will try to respect it as long as it doesn't restrict the whole batallion.




    From a man strength of 10 men it is possible to participate as your own company. Below that you have to join another unit.
    Only the commanding officer relies orders to prevent a chaos in the voice chat
    You are allowed to use Soundpad after request to prevent a chaos in the voice chat
    Keep the chatting in voice and textchat low.
    follow orders of the battalion staff
    rally your company 10 minutes before start



    Next Battalion Drill:
    7th March 2020 20:00 / 8pm CET
    Begin of the skirmish:
    about 21:30 / 9:30pm CET

    I am very much looking forward to tonights batallion drill. Still any company interested make sure to stop by and participate with your men. We all are more than willing to help in whatever way needed. Also you could just spectate the event and see if it would suit your unit for Future participation.

    Kind Regards Gentlemen.
