    The monthly Newsletter serves you curated content from around the community. We hope you enjoy this month's issue! November 2018 Member of the Month Member of the Month Award - @Capt_Teek Capt_Teek wins this month's coveted Member of the Month award for his superior recruitment efforts, skillful captaining, and overall positive attitude and activity. Capt_Teek has bolstered our numbers by recruiting several World of Warships recruits this past month. Capt_Teek has also been a regular and recurring member of Hydras Company's efforts in WOWS's Clan Battles mode--he has been voted #1 WOWS player within the Fighting 13th unanimously by everyone here...or so we've heard . In all seriousness, Capt_Teek displays an abundantly positive attitude, and it shows in how much the WOWS group adores him, and in how well he is able to recruit fellow sailors. He is open-minded and he takes genuine pleasure in being able to assist in any way he can, especially new folks. With all this being said, we would like to give Capt_Teek a hearty congratulations on winning MOTM! Battlefield V Red Devils Company Established With the release of Battlefield V on November 20th, our newest unit, Red Devils Company, has been established and has already swelled to 57 current members as of this typing, with 2 or 3 coming in every day or so wishing to play with or join. Named for the British 6th Airborne Division which famously fought in Arnhem during Operation Market Garden, we aim to model ourselves after them using cunning tactics and tenacity to beat and out and route our enemy. @BillyBantam is taking charge of the helm of Red Devils with @copat149 at his side. We welcome all of our new members and recruits, and urge everyone in "Recruit" status on Discord to apply on this website to formally join the Fighting 13th. Perks include shiny tags, being considered for Member of the Month, awards, recommendations, prizes, a sense of belonging and other cool stuff. On December 5th, the first content drop was released with the Chapter 1: Overture update adding in checks and balances as well as a new map. On December 6th, the Tides of War will start and along with it brings us new assignments, equipment and customization options to work towards. Our members, recruits, and anyone else who has the urge is welcome to join us Sundays and Wednesdays for SQUAD UP to play the game together and have a good time. We would also like to remind our new recruits and members that we actively encourage you to be a part of the community at large and participate in community events like Secret Santa, or just join in on our lively, albeit sometimes strange, conversations in the main chat or discussions on the forums. Thank you to everyone that has joined us thus far, and we are looking forward to continued growth and excitement for Battlefield V and our community. See you on the Battlefield! Scenes like this in BFV evoke images of 'Saving Private Ryan' and other movies. P.S. Please post your Origin usernames HERE and be on the lookout for discussions in the Battlefield V forum HERE. Secret Santa 2018 Secret Santa is a tradition within the Fighting 13th we have been doing where members give gifts to other members anonymously. Members are assigned a member to gift usually with a set maximum limit. This usually leads to some funny game exchanges, but also some fairly high-end games, especially with the Steam winter sale happening. Please note: Signups for Secret Santa can be done through THIS topic. The deadline for signing up will be December 13th! The Steam Winter Sale supposedly will start on December 20th and run for two weeks. We ask all participants to update their Steam Wishlists now. Secret Santas should buy and gift their present through Steam by January 2nd. If you are interested, please contact @Danius and @BillyBantam for more information, or ask away in the signup topic. Give a gift, get a gift, and earn a ribbon doing it! Advocacy Company (SC) Closing its Doors Leadership has decided to close down our Star Citizen unit, Advocacy Company. Interest in the game has fluctuated in the past, but at the moment is comparatively low. We will still be playing casually, and we will still be looking forward for updates as the game's development progresses. This is not a goodbye necessarily--more a "See you later." ARMA III/ Deathdealers Company News Deathdealers Company has been on a continued break this holiday season to accommodate players who are spending time with their families, as well as to allow time to enjoy new games that have released this past month. On December 18th, we will be holding our Christmas event to celebrate the holidays with everyone. We would like to welcome the presence of members both old and new to enjoy the holiday spirit with *Operation Dark Claus* where we will hunt down the elusive Santa Claus and his Elf Team Six in the Arctic North. This will be our last mission of 2018, and we look forward to running it with you all. Please RSVP! The ARMA III server swap-over was done successfully, and we have laid to rest our old server this past month. We will be starting regular Tactical Tuesday installments again every week at the beginning of the New Year in 2019-- we have a special mission set planned to kick everything off and we hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are. If you have any questions about what you need to do to join an Arma operation, how we operate, or any general questions regarding the game or our missions, please feel free to ask in the #deathdealers chat on the Discord server or PM @cJack or @copat149 with your questions. Also, we would like to give a shoutout to an old member who has returned with a fiery passion, @LeChefOmega! He is always excited and ready to play any op he can regardless of his past performance issues with the game. Hopefully, his new rig will put his poor FPS in the past and make him an Arma 3 pro! Teaser pic from the upcoming Operation Dark Claus event. Escape from Tarkov / Vikings Company News Exciting news has come from the Developers! They have released these notes in their announced pipeline for the game: Patch 0.11 will be released this year, for sure. But it will be downsized a little bit.

As always, check out the #hideout chat on Discord or join the Escape Room to squad up and kill some scavs with us! Contact @[13th] Exiduslol, @Scags, or @Daytex for more information. Sea of Thieves / Buccaneers Company News Shrouded Spoils, the latest update, gives players a more "surprising" experience in Sea of Thieves, at least according to Kotaku. The latest update gives old foes new tricks by making enemies more plentiful, and kraken more slamming. Enemies also drop way way more loot and grant special commendations that can be spent on unique gear such as a golden cannons or a barnacle-encrusted ship hulls. For a while, enemy encounters were rare but Shrouded Spoils makes monster hunting an entirely viable activity for players sick and tired of digging up buried treasure. As always, come join us to experience the life on the high seas like we see it! Contact @Chris P Bacon for more information. World of Warships / Hydras Company / Stingrays Company News The WOWS group was still in its off-season phase until November 28th when the latest Clan Battles season started. Hydras Company (EU) has used the off-season to strengthen its roster and hone its skills. The next month will hopefully see us reach our minimum goal of getting Gold III ranking and hopefully pushing higher. The WOWS group's excitement for Clan Battles really showed--the group mustered 10 members the first day and 12 members the day after. With a few more of our players active, we could possibly be running two teams of seven this season which would be huge progress from hardly being able to muster seven members daily last season--Its competitive section will henceforth never be known as "THE NEVER SEVENS" again! If you are curious to see the status of Hydra Company's and Stingray Company's battles, check the #na_harbor and #eu_harbor chats on Discord. Also, to aid in our fearless Captains' battle management efforts, please post your Tier X ships HERE and check out the other topics in the World of Warships forum HERE. In addition to the WOWS group's continued success on the war path, the WOWS group also has had a steady influx of new members recently, thanks in large part to @Capt_Teek. Thank you Capt_Teek! Also, please congratulate @Pman on stepping up to lead the NA side, Stingrays Company. He has proven himself over the last couple months and we expect him to do so further in the time to come. Please contact him or @5wi55_ch3353. (Hydras Company EU) for more information. Upcoming Games This section will highlight games that are on our "watchlist" of potential games we want to get into.

    Today, Nov 11th, the countries of Denmark, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and a slew of other countries will celebrate Veterans Day/Armistice Day etc. Today we honor and remember Veterans of all services for their sacrifices to their respective nations, both past, and present. These men and women have faithfully served their nation, willingly offering up their lives in the defense of everything they hold dear. While I do not speak for other countries, Veterans Day in the US is a day of brotherhood for those that have served. It is a day that we remember what our sacrifices mean, what we have fought and bled for in the defense of our great Nation. Many of my fellow brothers and sisters in-arms will gather today, and tell stories of their time in service, whether at peace or at war. Many of our fellow clan members have, or still do, faithfully serve their nation; today we honor your sacrifices: the time you spent far from home, away from your loved ones. The time you spent training to fight, and if necessary, lay down your life in defense of your nation, and more importantly, your comrades. The bond we have formed in our service is not a one that is easily broken, or forgotten. Regardless of branch, or nation, we share a kinship unlike any other. We have fought alongside each other, sharing in the blood, sweat, and toil that is the military. Some of us have served our time in war, in places far away and strange to our own home. In combat we have taken this bond, and forged it in steel stronger than any armor we possess. This bond is our strength, the very bedrock our courage and tenacity in combat is founded on. It is this bond of brotherhood that would bring us home together, with our shields, or on them. Men and women from all over the world have given their body and soul in service to their nation. Some would return home, missing a part of themselves, leaning more than ever on their brothers and sisters. Today, more than ever, we must take the time to remember their sacrifice. “All gave some, but some gave all.” This year, Nov 11th holds an even greater significance. 100 years ago, on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, the First World War would come to an end. After 4 years, 3 months, and 2 weeks of intense fighting, often hand to hand, the guns would fall silent, and church bells not heard since the beginning of the war would ring once more. 38,830,500 soldiers and civilians on all sides would be wounded or killed in the fighting, and even those unscathed would bear the mental scars of warfare for the rest of their lives. To this day, the scars left upon the Earth from the shelling and fighting can still be seen. Soldiers fought valiantly, on all sides, in conditions and against odds that are unimaginable today, in places like Verdun, Belleau Wood, Ypres, Tannenberg, and the Marne. Stories and legend live on from the 4 years of combat, such as the Attack of the Dead Men in 1915, or the Lost Battalion of 1918, as soldiers from many nations faced the horrors of war with steadfast courage and an iron will. The Great War would be marked by the use of tactics and weapons the world had never seen, with devastating effect as the old war collided head on with modern warfare. The war would inspire many authors, artists, and musicians to create compelling works of art and literature from their experiences, such as “All Quiet on the Western Front,” and its heavy influence on J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.” Today, 100 years later, we remember this war with the Red Poppy as the symbol of death, renewal, and life, with the poem “In Flanders Fields” by Lt. Col.. John McCrae. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row by row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard among the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If yea break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. While the last Veteran of WWI has passed, we must make the effort to remember their sacrifices and hardships in this terrible conflict; lest we forget the mistakes of the past. To All service members, regardless of branch or nation: Thank You.

    Hey everyone, LazyBuzzard86 here So I have literally just been accepted into the Community after searching for a group of people to play BFV with. I come from a console background actually, my reasons for building a PC was just for an all round better experience, more realistic games such as Arma etc (although I have mainly been a Battlefield player throughout the years and I’m currently enjoying BFV) I really dont know how i went so long without a Gaming PC, i cant use a controller for anything else other than flying now (And that's only until i get Track IR to use with my H.O.T.A.S I’m a Husband to the most beautiful Woman in existence and Dad to three gorgeous little girls I’m also a musician, being a vocalist, guitarist, and also play the harmonica, I’v had to take time out from performing due to mental health reasons but can’t wait to get back out there when things are better than they are right now, on wards and upwards eh! I love anything military related, my Dad and my Ancestors all served and I’m incredibly proud of that. I’m really looking forward to getting to know you all and becoming an active member of the Fighting 13th! Feel free to add me on Steam and Origin using LazyBuzzard86 (Also feel free to call me Jon) See you on the Battlefield (and in space once I get Star Citizen)

    Deathdealers, Deep in the Arctic Circle a solitary reconnaissance base has been taken over by Russian Spetznaz in the dead of winter. Drone footage of the site has shown they are being lead by the notorious S. Claus, the original operator and forefather of special operations. You’re tasked with taking back the recon base from Spetznaz hands and eliminating Claus. Don’t let your guard down, as even in his old age he is a cunning and devious opponent. He knows when you’re sleeping, and He knows when you’re awake. It’s time Gentlemen. Santa Claus has come to town. Slots are open for this one!!! MOD List to come.

    What beautiful words those were, Armistice Day means a lot to myself too. I was in the Army Cadet Force for a while in my young teens, however I couldn’t join up when I came of age due to health reasons. I do however respect and have a lot of pride in knowing that my Dad and my Ancestors have fought for my Country’s (and the worlds) freedom. I’d like to share with you all my 2nd Great Uncle’s story and Medals from WW1... Arthur Horton signed up with the Coldstream Guards in 1905, he went to Egypt and India before the War broke out in 1914, although being a soldier first he was actually a qualified cook, I have a letter dated 1919 from one of his friends saying how much everyone loved his food. We have a photograph of him cooking in the trenches (although I haven’t seen it yet) So after being active during the whole 4 years of the War, he was discharged with the 1914, 1914/1915 Bronze Star Medal, the British War Medal, And the Allied Victory Medal, but he also received the British Military Medal for Bravery In The Field, it’s believed he ran into no mans land and saved one or more comrades under enemy fire... I’m incredibly proud to be related to him, and here are those above mentioned Medals worn by myself in memory of my Uncle Arthur (Note I’m wearing them on my right side due to them not being my own Medals) Also a phot of Uncle Arthur himself with my Nan. I hope you enjoy looking at these
