Sinful Imagery Competition
2:52 - Colonel Zekk Terrik

Hi everyone!

During the course of my CMDRing this month, I noticed that Sin's banner truthfully looks a little lackluster. Sin is looking to rebrand a little, so I would like the entire TC to help us out! My XO and I, COL Stryker, will be judging the submissions beginning November 1st. This competition is open from October 1st to October 31st. Please direct your submissions to me at zekkterrik@gmail.com.

Our current banner is here.

We're not looking for anything specific other than the best looking one, so let's get creative!

Sin members are of course welcome and invited to contribute, but we wanted to have everyone help us out!

We will be issuing an IS-GR for first place, an IS-SR for second, and an IS-BR for third. I know a lot of you are very talented artists, so we're excited to see what you have to offer! Hopefully you'll use the entire month to come up with something really nice.

LCM Promotion in Rho Squadron
18:18 - Vice Admiral John T. Clark


LT Lo Mar of Rho Squadron has been promoted to Lieutenant-Commander.

Quoting from the promotion request: “Since his last promotion, LT Lo Mar has become one of the most active pilots in the TIE Corps, challenging for top spot in TIE Corps in Battle, Project 660, and Rho Ace 2020. He has also completed an engrossing backstory for himself in long-form fiction that he's shared with the squadron and submitted for Raise the Flag 2020. LT Lo Mar's mix of high scores abilities, SPAM aptitude, and knack for fiction makes him a perfect fit for Rho Squadron and an excellent candidate for promotion.”



Congratulations, LCM Lo Mar!

CPT Drake Starfire is stepping down as CMDR of Inferno Squadron. He has our thanks for taking on that role though RL ended up getting in the way as it has a habit of doing.

Taking over for him is newly-promoted CM EvilGrin, a rising star in the TIE Corps that's been doing an excellent job as an Assistant to the Combat Operations Officer and being an all-around great guy. Good luck on your latest endeavor, Commander!

Raise the Flag Bonus Competition #6: SP
0:21 - Fleet Admiral Plif

This is the last bonus comp for RtF 2020! This one's for Single Player in TIE Fighter, X-Wing versus TIE Fighter, and X-Wing Alliance. Unlike in previous years, this one'll be a solo endeavor.

The four pilots who achieve the highest four competition point totals will earn themselves and their ships 200, 150, 100 and 50 points respectively. Every participant will earn their squadrons and ships 5 points per platform.

The competition ends at 23:59:59 GMT on Wednesday, September 30th.

Each pilot will receive 1 to 100 competition points per battle based on their score compared to the highest score for that battle posted during the competition as opposed to the high score listed in the database. For example, if a participant's score for the TIE battle is 83% of the highest score for that battle, they'll receive 83 competition points. That 83 plus their competition points from XvT and XWA will be their competition point total. TIE scores use the usual laserless calculation to pull laser hits out of the total.

Medals to be awarded: IS-GW for the highest competition point total, IS-SW for second place and IS-BW for third. IS-SW for the top scorer for each battle, IS-BW for second places. An additional IS-BW for every pilot who completes all three battles.

Assigned battles:

If you've already flown one of those battles earlier this month, please fly it again in order to participate in the SP Bonus Comp. Note that you won't earn the general activity points again, but you can still beat the high score and earn RtF points for that.

Submissions should be made through the normal BSF process in the database. If your pilot file gets queued for review closer to the end of the competition, please email your pilot file to tccom@emperorshammer.org.

LCM Promotion in Beta Squadron
18:06 - Vice Admiral John T. Clark



LT EvilGrin of Beta Squadron
has been promoted to Lieutenant-Commander.

To quote his Commanding Officer, Colonel Doyon:
“Lieutenant EvilGrin has done way more activity than expected from a Lieutenant. His activity is tremendous: nearly weekly MP and SP flying, participation in a lot of other competitions, daily communication on Discord and/or emails. He's also a great assistant to the COO, creating one of the most successful MP competition this year with Empire's Wrath. In my mind, EvilGrin deserves without a doubt this promotion. Great work!“

And that is also the case in my mind.



Congratulations, LCM EvilGrin!

Commander promotion in Sin Squadron
17:23 - Vice Admiral John T. Clark


It is my pleasure to announce the following promotion:
LCM Jack Wynand of Sin Squadron has been promoted to full Commander.

To quote his Commanding Officer: “Over the last few months, Jack has become an invaluable asset to Sin. He is never the most active pilot you'll see, but he sacrifices quantity for quality in his ideas and creativity as evidenced by his ideas and production of The TIE Pilot Podcast. For this, and his efforts towards making Sin great, I am proud honored to recommend LCM Jack Wynand for promotion to the rank of full Commander, with my gratitude.”

Congratulations, CM Wynand!
