Imperial Storm VI

What is Imperial Storm? Imperial Storm is a turn based wargame that the Emperor's Hammer runs annually. During the event, the Battlegroups will conduct combat operations to identify and destroy enemy forces on a map. The Battlegroups navigate their fleets around the map with orders submitted every day by the Battlegroup Commander with the goal to defend the worlds of the Tkon Rift from the Kilji Illumine, a theocratic government of the Kilji species. Combat occurs when enemy forces are encountered is decided by the accumulation of winning multiplayer matches and performance in a selected Single Player mission over a 48 hour period, so your direct activity dictates how we do against the enemy. Meanwhile, agents of the Secret Order work to acquire assets and form contacts, working to increase the fleet’s overall combat efficiency.

Rho Watch Party

With 12 pilots and 12 months of the year, I assigned a pilot to each month at random. At the beginning of each month I get with the pilot for that month and discuss their choice for any movie or show rated PG-13 or less and all days and times that work for them to watch it. I then make a survey containing every date and time that was chosen and the members of Rho go through and click on every date/time listed they are available for and willing to participate in. After 72 hours whatever date/time with the most available participants is chosen and announced. On the agreed upon day we meet up and the person whose month it is (or whoever has access to it) screen shares on EH’s discord and we as a group, hang out and watch it together. Talking, making jokes or just enjoying the show. I’ve had 2 successful watch parties so far to make sure people will participate and I’m making it Battlegroup wide because we’ve already had a couple pilots outside Rho show interest and actually join in.

TIE Corps in Battle Season Seven

One battle each from TIE, XvT, XWA and TFTC will be assigned monthly. Pilots will fly the battles and submit their pilot files through the database normally. The WO receives a copy of all BSFs, so neither pilot files nor BSFs need to be forwarded to the WO unless the submission gets queued in the database. In the case of a queued submission, send the pilot file to the WO. Rounds in Season Seven will run for one month each starting from mid-month to put TCiB on a slightly different schedule from most competitions. For example, the first round is starting on the 15th of November and will end at 2359 on the 15th of December. The catch is the time zone, for which I’ll be using UTC-12 to avoid cheating anyone out of a few hours on the last day. The pilot with the highest score each month in each platform will earn 9 points. The next highest score will earn 8, then 7, and so on. All submissions will earn at least 2 points. Any mission high scores will earn 1 bonus point and any battle high scores will earn 2 bonus points. High scores are evaluated in the order the pilot files were submitted, but both pilots will receive the bonus points if a processed high score is overtaken later by another pilot. Points will accumulate for the season for more awards and the overall top pilot will also receive the title TIE Corps Battlemaster. The points earned by each pilot will also be added to their squadron's total and their battlegroup's total. At the end of the season, the participants from top three squadrons and the top battlegroup earn awards.

SWTOR Conquest 2: The search for more Conquest, Season 3

Pilots within the official organizational guilds on the Star Forge server (“Emperor’s Hammer” for the Sith Empire and “Infiltrator Wing” for the Republic) will compete against each other for placement awards while they aide the organization to meet its in-game goals. Criteria: Weekly Placements: Weekly placement awards will be given, per faction, and will be determined by the sum of all conquest points earned by a pilot’s legacy (all characters a pilot has on the server, within the official guilds), calculated from the guild roster screen. Screenshots of the pilot totals will be taken between 10am-12pm GMT on Tuesday. Due to scheduling conflicts, points earned between 10am and 11am GMT on Tuesday may not be represented on the official screenshots. Pilots earning conquest points between 10am-11am GMT on Tuesday will need to submit a screenshot containing all points earned by a pilot’s legacy to eh.gytheran@gmail.com or in DMs to Gytheran on Discord for consideration. NOTE: It is a good habit to take a screenshot of your conquest totals each week as a back-up in the off chance a catastrophic event occurs, and official screenshots cannot be acquired. The conquest totals can be accessed by all members. While in game, press “G,” select the “Roster” tab, set one of the two right-most columns’ drop-down menus to “Conquest Points,” and sort by “Legacy.” Each week, the top three pilots in each of the two guilds will be awarded Iron Stars and given “placement points” used in the calculation of monthly and final competition awards. Any pilot reaching 100,000 conquest points in either or both SWTOR guilds will also be awarded an Operational Readiness Award (ORA). The ORA can be granted once per faction, per week, for a maximum of two ORAs per week. Placement points are ONLY given 1 time per faction, per week and will be determined by a Pilot’s highest placement within that faction. Placement points for pilots earning 100,000 conquest points are only granted if that is their highest award for that faction. Weekly Awards: Imperial Guild: 1st Place: IS-SW and 12 Placement Points 2nd Place: IS-BW and 11 Placement Points 3rd Place: IS-CW and 10 Placement Points 4th Place: 9 placement Points 100,000 Conquest Points: Any pilot whose legacy earns over 100,000 conquest points for the Imperial guild, “Emperor’s Hammer” will be awarded 1 ORA and 8 Placement Points. Republic Guild: 1st Place: IS-SW and 12 Placement Points 2nd Place: IS-BW and 11 Placement Points 3rd Place: IS-CW and 10 Placement Points 4th Place: 9 placement Points 100,000 Conquest Points: Any pilot whose legacy earns over 100,000 conquest points for the Republic guild, “Infiltrator Wing” will be awarded 1 ORA and 8 Placement Points. NOTE: Pilots earning over 100,000 conquest points for both the Imperial and Republic guilds will be awarded 2 ORAs. Example: “Pilot A” earned 1.2mil conquest and a 1st place finish for the Imperial guild, but did not place for the Republic guild, managing to earn 150,000 conquest points. “Pilot A” would be awarded one IS-SW, 2 ORAs, and given 20 “Placement Points” (12pts for placing 1st for the Empire and 8pts for reaching 100k conquest for the Republic). Monthly Placements: There will be four monthly placements calculated by the sum of “placement points” earned by pilots from each of the two SWTOR guilds each conquest week during a given month and awarded a single set of awards. Again, monthly awards only occur once per month and are calculated by placement points earned in both faction guilds. The conquest dates calculated for the four months’ placements are as follows: January: 9, 16, 23, 30 February: 6, 13, 20, 27 March: 5, 12, 19, 26 April: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 Awards: The top four pilots, by total placement points each month will be awarded Iron Stars w/ Wings. 1st Place: IS-GW 2nd Place: IS-SW 3rd Place: IS-BW 4th Place: IS-CW Ties: In the event there is more than one pilot with the same number of placement points, monthly placement will be determined by the total number of conquest points earned during that placement period. Overall Placements: At the end of the 17 weeks, concluding 11:00am GMT April 30, 2024, all placement points earned by members of both guilds will be tallied and the top pilots will be ranked and given the following awards: 1st Place: IS-PW & Title: “Legendary Conquest: Season 2 Champion of Star Wars: The Old Republic” 2nd Place: IS-GW 3rd Place: IS-SW 4th Place: IS-BW 5th Place: IS-CW Ties: In the event there is more than one pilot with the same number of placement points, the final competition placement will be determined by the total number of conquest points earned throughout the entire competition period.
