SOO REPORT #16

REPORTING OFFICER: Admiral Plif, Strategic Operations Officer
DATE SUBMITTED: 1 Nov 2018

NEWS

Our most recent attempt to establish MP nights continues... well, today, technically. Every Thursday night, the U.S.-based admirals are getting folks together for a few rounds of multiplayer. We've been playing XWA so far, but we might shift gears at some point. If you can make it at 5:30pm Pacific, you just need to have GameRanger and Discord ready and we meet up in the Hangar room. If you need an invite to the TIE Corps Discord channel, just reply here and one of us will send you the link. Last week we had four players and ran through five successful PvE matches, so that's 20 LoSs in total that went out and I noticed a few Co-op ranking increases happen as well.

With the end of October begins a whole new round of evaluations, and as always we'd like to get everything wrapped up ASAP. CMDRs, to your consoles!

The Trivia Grand Tour continues and is in its thirteenth week. It's an image week where the answers will be the name of the movie the screenshot came from and its URL is http://tc.emperorshammer.org/timetest.php?testid=525067. Congratulations to our top two from Week Twelve, CM Witcher and RA Hav Antiel!

AWARDS
GN Elwood the Brave
From COM/AD Miles Prower: "General Elwood The Brave has done it yet again, 14 Legions of Combat, 1,219 Legions of Skirmish on top of high levels of communication activity and excellent attention to his squadron as Epsilon Commander. So therefore it's my privilege to endorse him for the Gold Star of the Empire." From SOO/AD Plif: GN Elwood the Brave continues to exemplify the Gold standard, flying an incredible number of missions and leading Epsilon Squadron with distinction. I concur with AD Prower's recommendation and just wanted to add that the TCCS appreciates Woody's dedication and perseverance.
FA Silvius
Over the past few months, FA Silvius has turned in a mountain of MP victories and kept up with one of the most monotonous but critical processes that keeps the Corps running. For his outstanding dedication and commitment, the TCCOM and I hereby award Silvius the Gold Star of the Empire.
AD Pete Mitchell
The TCCOM spent some time on leave during September, but still turned in 23 PvP victories and 3 PvE victories along with superb execution of his duties while he was on station. For activity in September, I hereby award AD Pete Mitchell the Palpatine Crescent.

CPT Rando
I was reminded that I hadn't yet recognized CPT Rando for being one of the Warrior's most prolific SP pilots during August, a repeat of many similar months of combat he's undertaken. With that out of the way, that'll be all for now, Captain.
CPT Rando
Once again, CPT Rando was one of the Warrior's top pilots in September. His tenacity is quite impressive, I have to give him that. It still pales in comparison to the effort I put into each and every briefing I give, but it's still something.

MAJ Aldaric
Back in August when he was still a Captain, Major Aldaric was one of the four top SP pilots from the Warrior for the month. As such, he earned another small token of my appreciation and continued to be a member of my Escort Squadron, despite all his complaints about his assigned cot in the briefing room the month prior.
MAJ Keth Aalith
MAJ Keth Aalith took second place in Week Eleven of the Trivia Grand Tour!
COL Earnim Branet
Like many of the months before it, COL Earnim Branet was among the top four pilots from the Warrior in September. Fine work, Colonel, I'll let you know the next time I need my Escort Flight to -- I couldn't even finish saying it. I'll see you in the briefing room.
COL Earnim Branet

COL Earnim Branet
COL Earnim Branet was once again on my list of the top pilots from the Warrior for August, confirming my theory that despite all the medals he's being awarded from other competitions, it's mine that's his biggest motivation to keep moving forward.

GN Mark Schueler
GN Mark Schueler appeared on my list of the top pilots from the Warrior for September as well, making it his sixth month as part of my Escort Flight. After all of my superb briefings leading to the capture or destruction of all the hostile forces in our part of space, I'm surprised that the General keeps finding new ones to go out and shoot at, but that's exactly what keeps happening. Maybe we're missing something. Whoever earns himself disciplinary action next is getting sent on the longest, loneliest recon mission I've ever drawn up.

GN Mark Schueler
General Schueler continued to join the fray personally over the course of August, which I still don't quite understand but it did mean that he was in the briefing room quite often to see and hear my work first-hand. That should be reward enough, really, but I was reminded that we also give out a medal. Consider yourself doubly blessed!
