Beta Squadron Report - August 29th 2020


Full squadron again!

Back to 12 pilots again! That’s great news, and I welcome all our new pilots in your new home. I’ll write to you personally later to give you the « rules » in Beta squadron, which, basically, is to have fun. 

Fleet news 

  • Raise the Flag (RtF) is coming pretty soon, the biggest competition of the year. Basically, it’s all about being active - fly SP mission, do MP matches, and bonus points for graphic creation and fiction writing. Be ready to have a lot of emails from me!
  • Elite Dangerous has officially been canned as a project to be an official EH game. What it means is that you can always play the game with fellow EHers if you wish, you will not be rewarded for it though. 
  • If you'd like to share your Playstation Network ID or Xbox gamertag with the rest of the TIE Corps, send an email to tccom@emperorshammer.org or send a DM to FA Plif on Discord if you want your info added to the list.

Squadron News

  • The XvT Tournament, the Empire’s Wrath, is at round 3 now! A few pilots have been eliminated now; 3 pilots from Beta are still in (EvilGrin, Wildfire and myself). 
  • Two new pilots have joined Beta: CM Ernest Penfold and SL BrickyT. Welcome! 
  • Medal of Communications have been awarded to (almost) everyone. 
  • There’s a couple days left for August’s TIE Corps in Battle and Everyone’s a critic. If you haven’t flown the battles already, do it! More info in the Competitions section.



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

The Empire’s Wrath

  • Created 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.
