Thunder Squadron PatchSQUADRON NEWSThunder Squadron Patch

Pilots, welcome to this weeks Thunder Squadron Report.

As per usual at the start of a month I submit the Monthly Squadron Evaluation, which is currently working its way through the Admiralty, and once complete we should see a number of medals dropping out of this months document so please bear with us whilst we complete the Empires favourite item - papework.

We extend a warm welcome to Lieutenant Veritas Crawl who joined Thunder Squadron earlier in the week and brought us back up to twelve members. Our new joiner very rapidly earnt a promotion to the rank of Lieutenant by completing his INPR document so well done there, we will be watching your career with great interest!

The big news though since the last report has been the release of Star Wars: Squadrons, I know from some email chains that found there way around the group that a number of you have purchased the game and enjoying it thus far, myself included. Whilst the Combat Office come up with the scoring system to allow us to gain Legions of Combat (LoC) and Legions of Skirmish (LoS) please make sure you keep a record of the multiplayer games you are playing with a screenshot of the scoreboard at the end of the session.

Star Wars: Squadrons (SWS) is upon us, and it feels very much like the game we've been hoping it would be with great gameplay in my opinion. Remember, that if you fly any MP games take a screenshot or photo of the score screen as the Combat Office are still coming up with the scoring metrics.
