TCCOM REPORT #20

REPORTING OFFICER: Fleet Admiral Plif, TIE Corps Commander
DATE SUBMITTED: 23 Nov 20
ACTIVE DUTY ROSTER COUNT: 143 (-8) Including 3 NPCs

NEWS

The roster is actually down 8 since last time with a few folks heading to the Reserves and a few AWOLs. Our recruiters are regrouping and thinking about new avenues to pursue.

Star Wars Squadrons has a couple of upcoming content updates that will add a new map, the B-Wing and TIE Defender, and custom matches that include public and private matchmaking. The private matchmaking in particular is a boon for tournaments and other events that probably keep us in the game for a long time to come. See more about the new content here.

This past weekend, we got a bunch of the CMDRs and the admirals together for a meeting in Discord, which I think went pretty well and we'll be trying to keep those going. There were a few things brought up that'll lead to some further discussion, more news about those as they're finalized.

Thunder Squadron has a new CMDR, congratulations to MAJ Tygra Shadowclaw!

All I Want For Life Day (Is My Platinum COMPOST Membership Card) wrapped up last week and we have our Lord of the TIEs for 2020. Congratulations to LCM Marek Ny`Irfa!

  • Forwarded new BSFs from TIE-TC #244 to the COMPOST Director

ONGOING:

  • Processing transfers and other profile updates in the database
  • Running TIE Corps in Battle and Everyone's a Critic
  • Posting news to the feed in the database (sometimes)
  • TIE Corps Pilot Manual updates - Living document style, no big revisions that take a while to come out
    • Well, no big revisions until there was a new visually-enhanced version to reverse engineer into Google Drive before I can continue making updates myself, of which there are a few pending
  • Fleshing out the New Members Guide in the Wiki
  • Chatting with the IO about stuff we need or would like to see in the new database
  • Learning to be a responsible database code collaborator from the IO, AD Turtle Jerrar (thanks!)

IN PROGRESS:

  • Removing the Max Rank bonus column from MSE spreadsheets
  • Re-evaluate support for Galactic Starfighter in SWTOR, Imperial Alliance, and Freeworlds
    • IA and FW essentially decided
    • SWTOR:GS less clear
  • Parse RtF feedback and share with the leaders
  • WARD opening - let me know if you’re interested in either of the two WARD positions
    • Last call for WARD, would like to move forward on picking the two WARDs this week

PENDING:

  • Discord channel revamp including new FL permissions
  • Trivia Grand Tour
  • The Commodore Volume 7
  • Figuring out another solution for completing the evaluation feedback loop
  • Competition resource - what we've done before to serve as a pool of ideas for what we can do next
  • Taking TM/3
