Beta Squadron Report - August 16th 2020

 

Back from vacation!

I’m back from vacation! A nice week off work, and mostly off my computer too. I’ve traveled a lot around where I live - Quebec, Canada - for various activities. The highlight was last Thursday, when I visited the Miller zoo, which is more like an animal refuge than a zoo actually. Yes, tigers were there, and no, I didn’t scream f**k Carole Baskin. Later that day, I went for some beers at Frampton Brasse, a microbrewery near the zoo, and we stayed there until late night, as we watched the Perseids meteor shower. Amazing! Okay, so enough about me, let’s get to the report :P



Fleet news 

  • LCM Jack Wynand and COL Zekk Terrik have done a TIE Pilot podcast, which is quite funny and interesting at the same time. If you haven’t done so yet, go listen to it here: https://youtu.be/uSf_cAyEH2Q
  • As we moved our fleet to the Unknown Regions, as ordered by GA Ronin, our new recruits are now assigned to the SSD Avenger, before being reassigned to their unit once their training is complete. 
  • 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

  • July MSE’s medals have been awarded. Congratulations to everyone! It’s nice when you’re thanking me for that, but as I said many times, it’s all yours - you’re doing the work, I’m happy to reward you for it.
  • The XvT Tournament, the Empire’s Wrath, is still raging on. Sadly, I was eliminated by Admiral Turtle (and waiting for my next opponent), but LT Wildfire and LT EvilGrin are still in it! Great work!
  • As I’m back in active duty, I’ll be also more active on Discord!


Competitions

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

 

The Empire’s Wrath

 

  • Create by LT EvilGrin, it’s a double knockout XvT tournament where you fly against other pilots, until there’s only one - you, the winner, who gets a shiny IS-GW! You can follow it here: https://challonge.com/fr/ylygen58

 

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.

 

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

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! 

 

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.

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!
