Beta Squadron Report - July 18th 2020

 

Slow week!

We’re in the middle of summer (well if you live in the northern hemisphere :P) and activity has been a bit low, which is to be expected with all the events going on in real life. Beta isn’t a full squadron anymore, and more pilots might leave in the near future. That’s not an issue!



Fleet news 

  • The final results of Trivia Grand Tour Season 5 are out! Congrats to the winners!
  • Tempest squadron is now opened on the Challenge, while Kappa on the Warrior is now closed. 
  • If you'd like to share your Playstation Network ID or Xbox gamertag with the rest of the TIE Corps, head over to https://tc.emperorshammer.org/timetest.php?testid=960104 and FA Plif will share it in a way that's not publicly-available to everyone on the internet. Right now, that's a very restricted channel on our Discord server.


Squadron News

  • Two pilots left us this week: COL Silwar Naiilo has left for Tempest Squadron, as FL! Congrats to him! LT Garriald has been removed at his request. 
  • Know your Beta Round 3 is over! Kyle Kroan is a bit busy this week, but he told me that there was only 2 participants. I’m expecting more from you guys!
  • Maverick or Iceman is finishing tomorrow! So far, there’s a winner! Will there be more?
  • LT Germ was promoted to LCM for his great work and presence on social media. Congrats!


Competitions

Here’s a few fleet-wide competitions currently going on:

 

TIE Corps in Battle and Everyone’s a critic for July:

So, you fly these battles, submit your pilot files, and then you go write a review on the battle’s file on the TC website, thus making you participate in two competitions at the same time!  

 

TC PvP Shootout

  • A MP Event for the whole TC will take place from 22:00 (10:00 PM) GMT every Saturday if possible.
  • Supported platforms are XvT and XWA and the main contacts are COL Horus Blackheart and the COO.
  • Voice communication is preferable but not required to participate. Game hosting will be directed through GameRanger or a more suitable system based on compatibility and stability.
  • A DFC will be awarded to the highest scoring pilot. COO guidelines required, which apply in full force (at least 3 different opponents, EH or not, defeated and +3 win/lose ratio, plus the need of having a minimum of 3 EH players playing on that game platform).
  • Pilots will be awarded an IS-BW for participating in at least 10 matches.

 

Everyone's a Critic

  • You fly a battle and think it’s the best ever? Why don’t you write a review about it?

The more reviews you write, the best medal you get! It’s a nice way to not only get involved in the fleet, but to fly great battles made in the past.

COO Monthly Assignment: The Wingman Strikes Back (Star Conflict PvP) :

 

This competition is geared towards getting the highest number of Assists in a single Player vs Player (PvP) battle in Star Conflict.

Every victory is counted even if it doesn't fulfill the requirements for the Legion of Combat.

Submissions to the competition are made through the database like any other Legion of Combat submission. While processing, the COO staff will look for new personal bests and update the spreadsheet. Non-LoC winning screens can be sent in this way and will be approved without an LoC being awarded.

 

Ace of the TIE Corps 2020:

Every Single Player mission flown wins a point, whoever has most points at the end of the month wins

Each mission only counts once for the year, but missions flown in previous years can be reflown. The Kill Board statistics on the TC website are final.

IS-GW/SW/BW for top 3 monthly, at the end of the year the top 4 pilots win IS-PW/GW/SW/BW.

 

Bi-Weekly Fictions: 

Our WARD CPT Drake Starfire has made a bi-weekly fiction competition. Write anything you want of 2 500 words or less and submit it to the WARD. More info here: https://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=3130 

 

TIE Corps History Trivia

COL Hav Antiel is running a Trivia about TIE Corps history! One round each week, with winners for the week and for the month!
