We are the champions!
Raise the Flag 2020 is officially over, and Rho Squadron won the squadron competition! In fact, we had enough points to place 2nd among the Star Destroyers. Can you believe that?
Rho had nine pilots on the scoreboard by the end of the competition, including four in the Top Ten. Your humble CMDR finished 3rd, LCM Lo Mar finished right behind me in 4th, LT Epicedion squeaked past LCM Frenchie6 to take 8th, LCM acetiepilot moved up to 19th, LCM JetMech finished 21st, LCM Griggs D'Arc landed 38th, and LCM ERiSi finished 43rd.
I can't tell you how proud I am, pilots. I was feeling pretty low after RtF 2019 when the Warrior lost. This victory feels like more than just redemption. It feels like I've found my people. That may sound cheesy to anyone outside of Rho reading this, but my Rho pilots will know what I mean.
September was truly a rush. Every day was dedicated to flying and reviewing missions and checking the RtF site like a fiend. I must admit that I'm kind of glad it's over. I could barely sustain that level of activity, and now that Squadrons is out I feel like I need a break before I can really dive in.
I updated our squadron banner with a symbol to represent our RtF victory. Let me know what you think.
Two new pilots joined Rho this week. SL Pedz and SL Martello joined Flight II. I've spoken to both on Discord and provided their new uniforms and links to our Telegram channel. LCM ERiSi transferred to Inferno Squadron this week. We're thankful for your time with Rho, pilot, and hope you'll fly with us again soon.
