Whats going on?

Pilots of the Hammer,

Welcome to this edition of the Hammer Ship Report.

It's been quite the week aboard the ship, we've seen several members of Hammer based squadrons place very well on the August killboards, with CM Wolve topping the SP board and LT Nova Discordia coming in fifth. CPT Gytheran and CPT Solohan50 also claimed first and second place respectively on the Co-Op board and finally CPT TheBlackxRanger and LT Maximus Meridius claimed first and second place respectively on the MP Ace board with CPT DemWookieeCheeks behind them in fifth.

Special mention also goes to CPT Gytheran for becoming the 14th pilot to reach the 21st Echelon, the top of the Flight Certification system! No easy job that! Also a reminder to keep an eye on the Kill Boards which you can find here. Kudos to CM Wolve Excelsior Berkana who is setting a rapid pace with the SP board (2259 missions as of the time of writing) and CPT TheBlackxRanger and CPT DemWookieeCheeks who have clocked up 1256 and 665 PvP wins this year so far!

Raise the Flag (RtF) begins in the October, this is the TIE Corps big annual competition that pits us against our peers. All forms of activity earn points, which are accounted for your own ranking, and then combined for your squadrons ranking and further to your ships ranking. HA Plif will be releasing the details in due course as they are still being tweaked to take into account the different platforms that we make use of and potential bonus competitions (such as writing, art etc). So I hope you're all feeling rested and ready to hit the ground running!

Round One of TIE Corps in Battle (TCiB), the Single Player competition using the classics (TIE Fighter, X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, X-Wing Alliance) is close to ending on the 15th. This competition requires you to fly one battle per platform (details below) and submit your pilot file by the end of the round on the 15th. First place per platform gains you 9 points, subsequent placements drop down to 8, then 7 etc however all submissions earn a minimum of 2 points meaning even if you don't score highly you can help your squadron and ship simply by flying.

It's taken me a while to read them all, thanks to work and real life events here in the United Kingdom, but I've finally managed to score all of the submissions for the Crewmans Log competition. I had some FANTASTIC submissions and everyone who entered something for all 4 rounds earns a medal. I scored them per round, and then added up the scores to get to our placement...

We ended up with a draw for first place, between LCM neurotictim & CPT TheBlackxRanger whom both receive a Iron Star with Silver Ribbons with LT Nova Discordia in 2nd and LCM Hopfot in 3rd, both of whom receive a Iron Star with Bronze Ribbons. Well done to all of you! Fictions linked below!

Finally, thanks to the drawing skills of LCM Newt, and the organizational skills of CM Wolve who took inspiration from a shot the Challenge did last year we have an amazing group shot of the Hammer pilots posing in the Hammers hangar bay, not long after another routine landing by CPT Solohan50 (fire droids and repair crews sold seperately).

Competitions


A full list of TIE Corps competitions can be found here

Trivia for the Hammered - Season Five
Trivia for the Hammered returns with Season Five.
Each week, 4 questions will be released via the TIE Corps timed competition system. For each question, the quickest pilot to answer correctly receives 3 points, second quickest with the correct answer gets 2 points and all the pilots with a correct answer get 1 point.
We tally up at the end of the week with the highest point total winning a IS-SR and the runner-up a IS-BR.
After 8 rounds we tally up for our winner who will receive a IS-GR, with the runner-up receiving a IS-SR, whilst third and fourth places receive a IS-BR.
Points earned on each question accrue and lead to IS-CRs being awarded for every multiple of 50 points.

TIE Corps in Battle Season Five
One battle each from TIE, XvT, and XWA will be assigned monthly. Pilots will fly the battles and submit their pilot files through the database normally. The TCCOM receives a copy of all BSFs, so neither pilot files nor BSFs need to be forwarded to the TCCOM unless the submission gets queued in the database. In the case of a queued submission, send the pilot file to the TCCOM.
Rounds in Season Five will run for one month each starting from mid-month to put TCiB on a slightly different schedule from most competitions. For example, the first round is starting on the 16th of August and will end at 2359 on the 16th of September.
The pilot with the highest score each month in each platform will earn 9 points. The next highest score will earn 8, then 7, and so on. All submissions will earn at least 2 points. Any mission high scores will earn 1 bonus point and any battle high scores will earn 2 bonus points. High scores are evaluated in the order the pilot files were submitted, but both pilots will receive the bonus points if a processed high score is overtaken later by another pilot. Points will accumulate for the season for more awards and the overall top pilot will also receive the title TIE Corps Battlemaster.
The points earned by each pilot will also be added to their squadron's total and their ship's total. At the end of the season, the participants from top three squadrons and the top ship earn awards.
