SWTOR Conquest Point Challenge

Description: Members of the Emperor's Hammer SWTOR guilds will contribute to the weekly Guild Invasion goal by achieving conquest points. Members will earn conquest points by completing rotating weekly objectives, earning personal rewards and contributing to the success of each guild. This weekly event will run concurrently with the weekly server reset at 12:00PM GMT each Tuesday. Criteria: Iron Star Placement Awards 1. For purposes of IS award placement, members will add all points earned by each eligible toon and self-report the total here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd64cdNLt_3Va_fjNPivVEjHyN_PIxeDmsHm8YuJZQh-tSatA/viewform 2. As placement awards are earned for each faction, conquest points are to be reported separately for each faction, Imperial and Republic. 3. After each weekly reset, the top 10 earners from the previous week are displayed in the respective faction's in-game guild window. In order to be considered for awards from the contributions of toons not included in the weekly top 10, along with the afore-mentioned self-reporting form, players should submit screenshots of the Guild Roster screen ('G' key in game, Roster tab with points displayed) to COL Aardvark by discord DM or email no later than six hours after the conclusion of each weekly event. Please note that screenshots must be taken before the Tuesday reset. Operational Readiness Award 1. A toon that achieves 100k conquest points as indicated in the guild roster window will earn the player one ORA. Each weekly round, a player may earn a maximum of two ORAs, one from the Imperial guild and one from the Republic guild. 2. After each weekly reset, the top 10 earners from the previous week are displayed in the respective faction's in-game guild window. In order to be considered for an ORA from the conquest points of a toon not included in the weekly top 10, players should submit a screenshot of the Guild Roster screen ('G' key in game, Roster tab with points displayed) to COL Aardvark by discord DM or email no later than six hours after the conclusion of each weekly event. Please note that screenshots must be taken before the Tuesday reset. Eligibility: 1. There is a cool-down period immediately after a toon joins a guild. When a toon joins a guild, earned conquest points do not count towards the guild's invasion goal until the next Tuesday reset. In the guild roster, earned points will show as "pending". Toons are not eligible for this comp until the Tuesday reset following that toon joining a guild. 2. Points will only be considered from toons that are in the Emperor's Hammer (Imperial) guild and Infiltrator Wing (Republic) guild.

Pimp My Ride: Elite Dangerous starship edition

"Greetings! This is BLK PHNX otherwise known as the "Hip 'n' Happenin' Honsou!" We're live from Tuxorix Coast: After-market Starship Syndicate. We specialise in beautiful, upgradeable, template, technology services. And this is "Pimp My Ride" Elite Dangerous starship edition!!" I was taking a look through the cosmetic starship upgrade options in Elite Dangerous and got some serious "Need for Speed Underground 2" vibes. I was thinking about how to run a competition that everyone could participate in, which ruled out the cross-platform issues. I decided that a cosmetics competition whereby entries would be screenshots of your most "pimped out ride" emailed to eh.honsou@gmail.com or DM'd in Discord. "So my friends, send me holo's of your most pimped out ride and I will award the flashiest, coolest and most pimpin' entries! See you soon at the Tusorix Coast: After-market Starship Syndicate!!"
