Squadron News

s

In the aftermath of Remob, July allowed everyone to cooldown. Some pilots took a leave of absence, others are getting married, others are up to no good. No names will be mentioned, but let's say those two, are both vertically challenged.

Currently running a fleet-wide difficult competition that will challenge your piloting skills and your smarts. Squadrons Feats of Strength I, fly solo vs the AI, in SW Squadron Fleetbattles. This is harder than it sounds. Do you have what it takes? Unlimited attempts. KeblaOmega is setting the pace at the moment.

There are a number of new and exciting competitions. Be sure to check them out on our EH website. They are too many to list them all, from Kebla's Bounty Hunting, to Marenta's Pazaak (feel free to DM me for a duel!) to Phoenix and Solohan keeping us busy with trivia and crosswords. Also a minefield clearance challenge from Aardvark. Check the EH Competitions page for more! And, for all our artists out there, be aware that Beta, Gamma, Firebird and Rho are looking for new banners. Gamma is also looking for a new squadron patch. Speaking of art, a small heads up, I am preparing a big arts competition as the Ward of EH, more details in the upcoming days!

In the monthly Emperor's Hammer killboards, Lambda is represented well, yet another month! Wolve, has dominated the SP Killboard with 362 missions flown, claiming 1st place. Genie managed 8th. In the Multiplayer front, Ranger is first with a whooping 250 victories. In addition, Wolve claimed 3rd, Wookiee took 6th and Gytheran is 7th. And, in the PvE category, Gytheran took 1st with 198 victories, with no other Lambda in the top ten. As a squadron, we managed to get the 1st place for July in all three monthly killboards!

Congratulations also to CPT Solohan50 for being formally assigned as the Lambda Squadron's XO. As a result, Flight III is now Flight II and former Flight II has now become Flight III. The craft such as the TIE Punisher and TIE Reapers have also been re-allocated in the Hangar. Mottos have been swapped, pilot roster, the works. Only item pending is the... iceboxes.

Last but not least, Ranger has managed to recruit not one, not two, but six new pilots to the Emperor's Hammer! I want to use this opportunity to remind everyone, if enough of us, bring even just one new pilot every 1-2 months, that's a lot of new pilots!

Monthly tip of the week: In XvT (and possibly TF and XWA), the mag pulse lasts for 30 seconds. If you want a continuous effect you should fire the next missile at the 25 second mark.

Enjoy the summer or if you are in Australia (and the southern hemisphere), enjoy the winter! ;) Also my webhost fixed their issue and now you can see the beautiful Lambda banner and squadron patch again! They claimed some kind of a ... moon obscured the signal.
