About the TIE Corps

TIE Corps pilots engaging enemy targets in Star Wars: Squadrons The Emperor's Hammer (EH) is an organization of online Star Wars gaming fans founded in January of 1995 and is dedicated to recreating the excitement and adventure of the Star Wars saga online. EH members have come together to compete against each other in the games we play, celebrate each other's in-game achievements, and even build new content for some of these games. We are a diverse group, with members from many countries around the world and a wide range of ages. Most of all, we are a group that is friendly and respectful to current members and anyone who chooses to join us.

The original trilogy of Star Wars movies depicted the conflict between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance. The EH has a roleplay aspect to it in that our units, ranks, and awards are based on our idea of how a piece of the Empire might have continued the fight after the tragedy at Endor.

The TIE Corps (TC) is the division of the EH that specializes in spaceflight simulation games such as Star Wars: Squadrons, Battlefront II, Star Conflict, X-wing Alliance (including the X-wing Alliance Upgrade and the TIE Fighter Total Conversion), the original TIE Fighter, and others. Modelled around the organizational structure of military fighter units, most of our members are assigned to Squadrons. Each Squadron has a Squadron Commander, who serves as the primary contact for the pilots assigned the Squadron they lead. Squadron Commanders lead a group of 11 other pilots, building a community and contributing to their assigned ship through game nights, competitions, expanding knowledge at our Imperial University, or even writing fiction and making graphics of the group's exploits. There is always something new to enjoy in the TIE Corps.
