Beta Squadron Report - September 13th 2020


Back from vacation...again!

I was off work last week, and took some time with my girlfriend to a shack, far from the city. I thought there would be paddleboards on a lake, but there were only two kayaks. Turns out they were very, very unstable...but I managed to circle around the lake and survive! So, here I am, back to lead Beta and help us get a good spot in Raise the Flag. Also, I pre-ordered Squadrons (on PS4), yay!



Fleet news 

  • Raise the Flag is still on! You can follow the results here: http://rtf.tsaunders.net/

  • Third episode of The TIE Pilot podcast is out, with LCM Charlie X of Theta squadron talking about his flight rig. You can listen to the episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEcNYfNf0EY

  • A new squadron has been reactivated this week: Lambda Squadron, commanded by CM Genie. Welcome aboard the Hammer!

  • 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

  • I wrote an email earlier this week to boost participation in RtF. I got high expectations from all of us to rise up. We need to get better, including me! I know we can do it Beta!

  • LT EvilGrin has been promoted to LCM this week. A well deserved promotion from all accounts. Congrats!

  • As mentioned above, I’m back from vacation, so I will be on Discord more often. Don’t hesitate to poke me if you need anything.


Competitions

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


Raise the Flag:

This is the biggest competition of the year in the TIE Corps. The best ship, squadron and pilots are rewarded, and thus, we have to fight as best as we can! You can follow it here:

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.


Everyone's a Critic

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

You get better medals the more you write reviews! 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.
