TCCOM REPORT #17

REPORTING OFFICER: Fleet Admiral Plif, TIE Corps Commander
DATE SUBMITTED: 5 Oct 20
ACTIVE DUTY ROSTER COUNT: 123 (+4) Including 3 NPCs

NEWS

Raise the Flag 2020 wrapped up a few days back. Thanks to everyone that participated and congratulations to everyone that placed in all the different categories and bonus comps! See next section for the new title holders. Also, we're looking for RtF feedback through a Google Form over on https://forms.gle/KhkhxvfAPwQ4euvQ9

Since last time, the roster has grown by another four pilots though there was a lot of movement in both directions as you'll see in the Transfers section further down. We've only got a few open Flight Member positions, which I'll talk about again here in a moment.

Star Wars Squadrons came out late last week and there's been a flurry of activity in it. We're almost ready to start accepting screenshots from SWS to count for Legions of Combat and Legions of Skirmish, the COO will make an announcement when that's good to go. In the meantime, please keep holding on to your screenshots.

HA Elwood the Brave has announced his resignation from Commodore of the ISDII Hammer, though he'll be sticking around until we name his successor. He's decided to take a step back and return to squadron life for a while, which I think is a responsible decision and I thank him for his efforts on behalf of the Corps. To choose the next HamCOM, the TCCS will be opening the position to applications. Phase One of this process will be simply emailing me indicating your interest in the position. I'll send each applicant a few personalized questions and answering those will be Phase Two. For this position, we'd like to select one of our current CMDRs but will accept applications from everyone in case we don't have a CMDR that ends up being offered and accepting the position.

With only a few open roster positions available, it's time to open another squadron and we've got some big plans in mind. It's been a few years since the TIE Corps has had an active Infiltrator Wing unit and now seems like the perfect time to bring them back with Star Wars Squadrons featuring both sides of the fight for control of the galaxy prominently. A CMDR has applied and been selected. He's been directed to reach out to the pilots that indicated that they'd like to transfer to this new squadron in order to get their input on a squadron name, fighters, and objective.

On the Discord server, anyone without a role assigned and cadets are now limited to #iwats-training and #new-pilot-resources. They'll gain access to the other channels once they finish their training or have a role added like Reserves if they're a Reservist. This is so that our main channels don't have randos in them (other than LC Rando, of course) and incoming pilots don't get too comfortable before they complete our onboarding process.

In everyone's favorite omnipresent concern, proper Imperial procedure, the COO and SOO have decided that they're okay with not being involved with every inter-unit transfer and Flight Leader appointment. Going forward, what I'll be looking for is approval or at least acknowledgement from the applicable CMDRs and COMs before processing those.
