CAPT Report # 4 (2024-05-01)

This report was submitted by BGCOM-CAPT-TOA/VA Locke Setzer/Battlegroup III


Greetings Reservists of the TIE Corps!

This is Vice Admiral Locke Setzer, captain of this retirement cruise ship we call the M/FRG Phoenix, here with another quarterly news blast to let you know some of the latest news with the TIE Corps that might be of interest to you. I'll also have the usual helpful information about re-enlistment, medal restoration, and other topics that may be useful if you ever decide to unretire and join back up for a spell. So, without further ado...

Current Events

Squadron Remobilization begins!

Squadron ReMobilization (ReMob) VI is kicking off, and will run through the month of May. Like past years, this competition challenges each squadron to work together to complete challenges for single player gaming, multiplayer gaming, and creative works.

Specifically, squadrons are challenged to play single player missions, participate in multiplayer matches (both alongside and against their own squadmates), write fiction, complete Imperial University courses, and even work together to write up ideas for a custom battle.

Permanent Squadron Titles will be awarded to the three squadrons that finish all challenges first, with additional permanent titles being granted to any squadron that completes 50% or 75% of all challenge tiers.

If you're curious to know more about this event, feel free to read about it on the competition listing!

Imperial Storm Results!


Imperial Storm VI ended in March 2024, with the TIE Corps managing to hold off a complete take-over of the Tkon Rift by the Kilji Illumine, destroying 60% of the enemy forces in the process and forcing a halt to their invasion!

Throughout this conflict, the Battlegroup Commanders opted for a split fleet approach that resulted in most battles involving all members of the TIE Corps, encouraging everyone to work together as one in support of the mission!

Additionally, this particular Imperial Storm was aided by the appearance of the Secret Order (formerly Dark Brotherhood), which had a parallel competition to help aid the TIE Corps forces. This allowed the TIE Corps to revive part of the fleet at the final hour, aiding in an all-out offensive against all twelve worlds in the Tkon Rift that made for a wild finish!

In honor of their service, each member of the TIE Corps that participated in Imperial Storm this year was awarded the Tkon Rift General Campaign Medal, acknowledging their contributions in this conflict!

New Gaming Platforms arrive for the TIE Corps

March also saw the arrival of new (well, new-ish) primary gaming platforms: Battlefront Classic (I and II) and Destiny 2!

In conjunction with the (admittedly troubled) launch of the recent remastered collection of classic Battlefront and Battlefront 2, both editions of Battlefront Classic are now being accepted again as an approved platform!

Additionally, after a successful trial run and study, the TIE Corps has decided to now support Destiny 2 as a new platform! A Destiny 2 clan page for the Emperor's Hammer has been set up to help encourage pilots to play this new platform together.

All new platforms are supported for PvE and PvP match submission on the TIE Corps website. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions regarding any of these new arrivals!

Frequently Asked Questions

I often see the same questions from folks who are interested in returning to active service, or just happen to be curious about how the TIE Corps is working these days in general. Here's a collection of frequently asked questions and answers, tailored for folks presently chilling in the Reserves!

Question: Hey! I want to rejoin but I don't know how! What do I do?

Answer: Good question! It's pretty easy - you just have to contact the TCCOM, HA Plif! You can send him an email ( or you can message him on Discord (plif346) - whatever's easier for you! And if you're having any problems, you can always email me too - I'll help get things worked out for you.

Question: My profile on the TIE Corps website isn't right. I used to have medals! I used to have history! Now it's all gone and I'm sad.

Answer: Don't be sad! A lot of us old-timers have gone through this. Fortunately, there is a way to restore things! We don't have it at a place where we can do it automatically for everyone, but if you reach out to the TCCOM (via email at or Discord at plif346) and request a restoration, he can get that process started for you. We do ask for patience - it can take a bit of time. But have heart - your accomplishments are not lost to time! Please reach out to me too if you have any additional questions on this process.

Question: Are you going to make me rejoin to restore my records and stuff?

Answer: We want to be able to do this for everyone who asks for it. Admittedly, we are going to prioritize active members who need it over reservists. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't ask! We'd love to have you back, but making sure your past accomplishments are recorded and available is part of our duty to you, regardless of current activity status. You've earned it.

Question: Can I join the Discord server even if I'm in the Reserves?

Answer: Of course! You won't have access to all the channels, but you will be able to see and participate in most of the general chat channels, including the common hang-out spot, #plifs-asteroid-bar-and-grill. If you haven't joined the Discord server yet, the link to join is here.

Question: I don't really want to be active, but I do like doing the trivia and/or puzzle competitions, taking an Imperial University course, flying a mission, or doing some multiplayer once in a blue moon. Do I have to be in a squadron to do that stuff?

Answer: No! You're welcome to log in and submit your own BSFs for missions flown, take Imperial University/IWATS courses, do the trivia/puzzle competitions, report multiplayer matches... whatever you'd like to do. But... being in a squadron means that you can get awarded for that activity with merit medals. And there's a lot of squadron commanders out there who would be happy to have a pilot who just wants to contribute the odd bit of activity here and there. So don't feel like you have to be super active to be considered active - it's really okay to be an active member even when you can only do a little, just as long as you're having fun and keeping in touch.

Question: What are the supported platforms again?

Answer: See the list below!

  • TIE Fighter
  • X-Wing
  • X-Wing vs TIE Fighter
  • X-Wing Alliance
  • X-Wing Alliance Upgrade (MP only)
  • TIE Fighter Total Conversion (MP and the SP Reimagined battles)
  • Star Conflict
  • Star Wars Battlefront (Classic) (2004)
  • Star Wars Battlefront (Classic) (2005)
  • EA Star Wars Battlefront (2015)
  • EA Star Wars Battlefront II (2017)
  • Star Wars: Squadrons
  • Star Wars: Empire at War
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic
  • Elite Dangerous
  • Destiny 2
There are still regular conversations about adding new platforms as well... I'll let you know anytime we start supporting something new!

Question: I never want to hear from you again! Can you stop emailing me?!?

Answer: Never's a long time, and I promise that we'll only send these out once every few months or so. But if you'd really prefer not to be in the Reserves, please reach out to me and I'll help get you reassigned to Inactive, which will deactivate your account and prevent any further communications.

That concludes our little quarterly Reservist update email! If you have any questions about re-joining the TIE Corps, events going on, or just want to talk and shoot the breeze about old times, please feel free to reach out! My email is and my Discord name is LockeSetzer. Please use whichever is most convenient for you. My door is always open!

In Service,
