Description: * Raise the Flag 2019!
This competition will determine the Flagship of the TIE Corps, the TCCOM’s Own Escort Squadron, and TCCOM’s Wingman for the next 12 months. The Flagship/Escort Squadron/Wingman will be the ones who manage to acquire the highest number of points in the competition throughout the month of September. Any forms of activity presented by the pilots will grant points to their ships.

Points to each activity are listed as follows:
- 1 point to each Single Player mission flown from the TC Battle Center (each battle/free mission in the compendium can be flown only once throughout the month for credit in the competition, not considering eventual battles selected for the bonus comp). Note that battles/missions already flown in previous months of this year are eligible to be re-flown for points in Raise the Flag, however, they will not count towards Ace of the TC awards.
- 4 points for every LoC awarded in any PvP COO-approved platform
- 1 point for every LoS awarded in any cooperative PvE COO-approved platform
- 5 points for every mission high score (in case a pilot has already flown a mission/battle in the month, and hasn’t achieved the high score, he can try and refly the mission/battle for high score points only. However, you can only earn points for achieving the high score for a mission/battle once, so if a pilot already got the high score for a mission or battle once, he will not be able to get any further HS points for that mission battle. It won’t be allowed to gather any further points for just reflying the mission/battle)
- 5 points x # of missions in the battle for every battle high score
- 1-10 points will be awarded to each fiction submitted, judged by the TCCOM, SOO and COO (TCCS fictions will be judged by the remaining judges only)
- 1-5 points will be awarded to each graphic submitted, judged by the TCCOM, SOO and COO (TCCS graphics will be judged by the remaining judges only)
- 50 points for a DFC (in combat events taking place during the month). Usual DFC awarding policy applies in full force.

Bonus points:
Bonus points will be awarded only to the pilot’s ship and squadron, but regular points coming from Bonus comp activities will be awarded to the pilots regularly.
- From September 1st to 11th, a fiction competition – 200, 150, 100, 50
- From September 8th to 18th, a Multiplayer competition – 200, 150, 100, 50
- From September 15th to 25th, a Graphics competition – 200, 150, 100, 50
- From September 20th to 30th, a Single Player competition – 200, 150, 100, 50
All other participants in the bonus competitions will have their squadrons and ships awarded 5 points for participation. Bonus competitions details will be released separately.

There will be no:
- Points for Squadron Citations earned: all squadrons and ships must get into the competition with equal conditions, and citations might be easier for one squadron to get than for another;
- FCHG/CR Rank gains points: these rank gains can be more easily achieved by one pilot than by the other, and pilots must enter the competition with equal conditions to award points;
- Points for IWATS/IU Courses taken, because of the current EH system not allowing the retaking of tests;
- Points for Mission Creation: because Mission creation takes too long to be placed in a month long competition, and it would be difficult to see results.

Bonus competitions details will be released separately. Stay tuned at the TC news page and reports for announcements regarding the bonus competitions!!

Competition runtime starts on the first day at 00:00:01 UTC, and ends on the last day at 23:59:59 UTC.
