SOO REPORT #44

REPORTING OFFICER: Fleet Admiral Plif, Strategic Operations Officer
DATE SUBMITTED: 1 July 2019

NEWS

While I was out of town last weekend, I managed to get trivia done but missed a report. Sorry about that!

Squadron (Re)Mobilization has finally launched, it’s been stewing for a while and all the pieces came together to have it run before Raise the Flag. There are some interesting rewards involved, at least I think so, hopefully everybody else sees it the same way. No pressure for anyone to change anything about their squadron they don’t want to change, of course, but I think this might be the first time I’ve ever seen the Corps offer up so many options that are normally locked down.

Season Three of the Trivia Grand Tour is over and GN Pickled Yoda is our trivia champion once again! Congratulations to him and many thanks to everyone that participated in the competition. I don’t always thank myself for running it when it’s late on Sunday night and I’m working on releasing a new round, but I’m happy when I look back and see people continuing to play week after week. See you again soon for bonus rounds!

REMINDERS

With increasing information coming out about Episode IX, we’re trying to avoid posting any potential spoilers to the mailing list and general comm channels so that folks who want to go into the movie with a blank slate can do that. If you’d like to join the spoiler chat group in Telegram where we’re sharing anything we’ve found, let me know.

If you complete a new Imperial University course, you'll notice that your EH database profile gets updated automatically but not your TC database profile. The latter are updated manually by me and the TCCOM, please give us a day or two after your test is graded for the new course to appear in your TC profile before you email us about it.

We have a weekly MP event with the Rebel Squadrons on Saturdays at 7pm Eastern. Participants meet up on the Neutral Ground server on Discord.

SOO’S AGENDA

DONE:

  • Wrapped up Season Three of the Trivia Grand Tour
  • Obtained final clearances for Squadron (Re)Mobilization and launched that on time earlier today, wanted to make sure I got that out before midnight GMT so that no one missed any time on it. It’s two months long, but still...
  • Played a round of Capital Supremacy in EABF2 following the Droideka patch, they’re pretty great!
  • Noticed that the database incremented my OV to 21E, hard to believe it’s been that long. Wasn’t on active duty for all of it, but it still means that I was filling out the join form 21 years ago.

IN PROGRESS:

  • Adding more historical data to the evaluation spreadsheets
  • Catching up on Trivia Grand Tour medal awards, 7 pending in the database

ONGOING:

  • Approving awards, competitions, and uniforms, correcting submissions as needed
  • Keeping track of CoB eligibility

PENDING:

  • Taking TM/3
  • TIE Corps Pilot Manual update
  • Updating SM to SM/5
  • Title review for anything that awarded a title that isn’t reflected in the database yet
    • Awarded the title for TGT Season Three, so that one’s done
  • Trivia Grand Tour bonus rounds
    • I wanted them to be before the end of the season, but they’ll be between seasons
  • Building the CMDR pool
    • I know what I was hoping for when I first wrote this, but I think it realistically just means making sure that CMDRs have the tools to succeed and folks that might be interested in being CMDRs aren’t turned off by expectations they might perceive as being higher than what leadership is actually envisioning
  • Competition resource - what we’ve done before to serve as a pool of ideas for what we can do next
  • TC NL to collect all the fiction we’ve been writing before we head into Raise the Flag
  • Starting email threads with each CMDR and their COM to close the feedback loop on evaluations
    • I’ve gotta get this one done soon, otherwise a quick CMDR might get their June eval done before we’ve chatted
