Napoleonic wars is a very popular DLC for the the equally popular game "Mount and Blade: Warband". It is set in the years between 1810 and 1815, at the end of the Napoleonic wars era. It was developed by an external development team called FSE (Flying Squirrel Entertainment) and was sort of a follow up to the mod "Mount and Musket". In Napoleonic wars you can take part in epic battles and sieges, have a fun match of team deathmatch or play commander battle. You can try out blasting people away with artillery, Run people down with cavalry, Gun down people with organised line fire or Snipe people with the accuracy of skirmishers. Or maybe you fancy sitting in a corner and building fortifications as a sapper. In my personal opinion Napoleonic wars is an incredibly fun game and I would highly recommend buying the game.
What is a Regiment?
A regiment is a group of people who all play together and take part in line battles and training's. Around 95% of regiments, Including the 77y, Have a well organised ranking structure. Think of a regiment like a CoD clan, but not full of little kids that swear at you. Most regiments will not tolerate trolling in public servers, line battles or training's and they will ask you to follow their rules that they have set out. Failing to follow the rules will most likely get you demoted but if you are a repeat offender you may get kicked from the regiment of your choice.

What is the 77y?
The 77y is an example of a regiment which I talked about further up. Here in the 77y we are more laid back than most regiments. We like to fight our battles to acheie victory, but outside of line battles we have a teamspeak server which we all sit in and have a lot of fun together. our members have some basic knowledge in the game, excluding cadets who have little experience though. The 77y has Line, Skirmishers, and Artillery detachments to choose from and help can always be found if you want to improve on a certain aspect of your game.
How can I Join the 77y?
It's very simple, To join the 77y all you have to do is make an account on the website. This will then allow you to click on the button that says "Join us!". From there all you have to do is fill out the application form and wait for our response. If your application is good enough then you will get invited into teamspeak where you will go to a channel to go through the next stage of the application process, and if you pass that then you have become a full cadet of the 77y.
What are the ranks in the 77y?
The ranking system is in 3 basic categories, CO, NCO and Ranker. CO ranks consist of Col, Cpt and Lt. NCO ranks consist of Sgt and Cpl. Ranker ranks are split up into each of the 3 detachments. Line has ranks such as Gren, Pfc, Pvt and Consc, Skirms have ranks such as Shrp, Mrks, Jgr and Skirm, finally Arty have ranks which are in two sub-detachments but both basically fall under the same detachment as its just a way of showing who does what. The arty ranks consist of Gnr and CN. The arty guard ranks consist of Gfc and Grd. Each detachment will have there own CO's and NCOs. The only CO rank that isnt in each detachment is Col, as there is only 1 Col who owns the regiment.
What is RS and IP?
RS (Regimental Secretary) and IP (Induction Person) are two types of people which handle applications and the website. They both arnt counted as a seperate rank as users with these ranks have other ranks to such as Mrks or Pfc. They are seen more as Positions who deals with applications and who deal with other matters regarding the regiment.
What responses will I get when I apply?
You will receive 1 of 3 types of reply categories, firstly there is the acception reply. You will be given some short and simple instructions on how to continue with your application, however you can receive an issue category reply under this depending on the issue. An issue category reply is us pointing out an issue with your application which either prevents you from getting a promotion, or you havent put your steam URL in. Finally a rejection category reply is simply a rejection of your application, we will give you a reason, if this happens due to a mistake on your application, please point it out so we can continue if you fit the requirements after the correction.
I cannot attend tuesday training, will I get rejected for this reason?
No, this falls under the issue category, you will be accepted fully into the regiment as a cadet but will not be able to receive a promotion higher than cadet, tuesday training is largely important for improvement of skills and receiving a promotion, not the ability to attend events.
