Further LoS refinements

"After this current queue clearance, minimum time for a match to count for the LoS is 5 minutes or more.

Admiral Prower"

There is currently come confusion over how this change will effect playing Star Conflict (SC) and we are currently standing by for clarification on this rule. I'll e-mail the squadron separately when this information is provided.

Squadron Management 5 is now live!

I am extremely happy to announce that the Squadron Management 5 course is now live and ready for you all to take! Not only that but I am honored to function as your exam grader as well! This is a prerequisite for anyone who wants to be a CMDR in the future, and I also hope current and former CMDRs will take it and glean something from it.

Without further adieu, here it is!

Raise the Flag 2020

Over a decade ago, the TIE Corps Commander's dreams became reality in a forum never seen before: Raise the Flag, a giant combat arena where every available ship, squadron and pilot was called to duty to fight for power and glory. The victorious would be granted the highest awards and honors, and the ship would have the highest responsibility of carrying the Flag of the TCCOM.

Last year in 2019, the spoils of victory went for the first time to the ISD Hammer, Epsilon Squadron and Elwood the Brave, respectively crowned Flagship, Escort Squadron and TCCOM's Wingman

This year, the ships fighting for this flag are the ISD Hammer, commanded by Commodore Elwood, the ISD Warrior, led by Commodore Silvius, the ISD Challenge, led by Commodore Dempsey and the VSD Aggressor, led by TIE Corps Commander Plif himself.

A wide range of activities will count points in this competition. Details are in the usual places. TIE Corps officers will partake in any and every way they can for the glory of their ships, their squadrons, and themselves! Every battle, reputations are on the line in Raise the Flag, as master pilots pit their activity against each other.

Which vessel will become the flagship of the TIE Corps? Whose laser beam will reign supreme? Who will be the last ones standing?

It's time to Raise the Flag!

The point values are a little different this year with a much more elaborate breakdown in the point values. As opposed to a single value for SP, LoCs, and LoSs, we're now drilling down to each specific platform. The idea is that not all of the games take the same amount of time to complete a round or mission in, so we're using the RtF points to level that out a bit.

Single Player
XvT SP: 3
XW SP: 5
Mission High Score: 5
Battle High Score: 5x # of missions in the battle

SC LoS: 1
SC LoC: 3
XvT LoS: 2
XvT LoC: 6
XWA LoS: 2
XWA LoC: 6
EABF1 LoS: 3
EABF1 LoC: 4
EABF2 LoS: 3
EABF2 LoC: 4
CBF2 LoC: 4
GS LoC: 4

GS, for those that don't remember it, is Galactic Starfighter in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Just like with the other PvP platforms, you can earn an LoC for winning a match in GS with at least one kill and submitting the screenshot through the database.

Also, we made some changes to the Art section's points. There's one new activity worth points, there's a new word minimum for writing, and graphics can now be both as many points as writing.

Writing: 2-10 (50 word minimum)
Graphics: 1-10
SP Mission or Battle Review: 1 (30 word minimum)

EoR - 2020

Every week before Saturday, 06:00 UTC, Epsilon pilots submit their SC PvP/PvE/CoOp screen with the highest EFF points to 
In each category (PvP/PvE/COOP) the best scorer will earn 4 points, second will earn 3 points, third 2 points and every further participant 1 point. These points will be summed up.

The pilot with most points at the end of the week will earn an IS-BW. The pilot with most points at the end of the month will earn an IS-SW, second an IS-BW. The pilot with most points at the end of the year will earn an IS-SW, second an IS-BW.

For each submitted screen (max 1 per category per week) the pilot earns 1 activity point.
Every 10 activity points the pilot earns an IS-BW. When reaching 50 activity points the pilot earns an IS-SW instead and the activity points are set to 0 again.

  • Keep in touch - Contact myself and/or your FL at least once a week and report your activities and plans.
  • Keep active - Flying SP or MP, taking part in trivia, complete a IU/IWATS course.
  • Compete - With a wealth of competitions on offer, find one that piques your interest and take part.
  • Have fun! - For if we're not having fun, we're not doing something right.

There's lots of news to digest this week and there's a great vibe around the ship's deck with RtF now well under way.

Activity has been low for us all this week though as we come out of the summer holiday season that is to be expected, though I would like to remind everyone that it is key that you keep in touch with me, even if you are unable to be active in any other way.
Please keep the RtF activities up! I would love to see Epsilon come out of RtF in a strong position, or even better yet, defend our coveted title.

Kindest regards and happy hunting,
