  ISDII Warrior Commodore report #1 (01/10/2021)
This report was submitted by COM-TOA-ROA/RA Zekk Terrik/ISDII Warrior


REPORTING OFFICER: Rear Admiral Zekk Terrik
DATE SUBMITTED: January 10 2021


Hey everyone! Welcome to my first ever report as Commodore of the ISD Warrior. I spent the first week working on evaluations and getting to know my CMDRs and pilots and trying to touch base with everyone. Standing were orders were given to CMDRs and expectations were communicated. Evaluations are complete and your shinies will be in the mail soon. I was already pretty familiar with Sin and Rho, but took the time to get to know everyone in Theta and Kappa as well. It's the dawn of a new era for the Warrior.

I had planned to have some competitions ready to go by my first report, but I need another week or two. We had some rules (guidelines?) thrown at us very last minute that put a big time cramp in a lot of plans that I had for you guys, so I will have to rework some things. Bear with me in the meantime.

I would really appreciate it if you guys would take the time to complete this short little survey for me. It's not long -- only 6 questions, not 5 as many of you were quick to point out ;) -- but will help me tremendously in how to plan things and to know what makes you tick. A lot of you have filled it out for me, but a lot of you have not too. Please don't make me find new ways to motivate you.

I would love to see our squadrons form a Chalquila Cup team. I know Rho already has at least one. The Hammer and Challenge haven't had the crap kicked out of them since September, so I'm worried they've forgotten what it was like already. I am willing to sub into any of my squadrons that can't find a third.

I added a bit of fiction to the report as an attachment, hope you guys enjoy!

  • We are standing strong at 50 pilots.
  • Welcome to LCM Feco who joined Theta and LT JackieHarr who joined Sin. C
  • Congratulations to the following people: CM acetiepilot for becoming CMDR of Rho, CM Robert Hogan for becoming CMDR of Sin, MAJ Hermann for taking over an FL spot in Sin, CM Frenchie6 for taking over an FL spot in Rho, and CM Victor O'Brien for taking over an FL spot in Kappa.
  • Congratulations to GN Hav Antiel on your incredible tour of duty as CMDR of Rho. Your Silver Star to honor this tour of duty was well earned.
    • Make sure you catch episode 7 of The TIE Pilot Podcast at this link, where CM Jack Wynand and I discuss the early history of the EH with SA Maverick, including covering his time on the board and High Court of Inquisitors.
    • COL Mordechi Wolfe of Sin Squadron has begun a focus group on how to implement a salary system within the TIE Corps. We are soon to enter Phase II.
    • CM Robert Hogan has initiated a proposal to add some commendations (citations?) and to clarify the MoC within TTT a little bit, stay tuned for details!
    • Let's find some teams for the Chalquila Cup! Click on the link for full details.
    • We are honored to have MAJ Hermann, the SP Ace of the TIE Corps, aboard the Warrior. Even though he spent most of the year on another ship, he made a big impression on me in the short stint I spent as his CMDR.

  • More to come soon! It seems that many people have expressed an interest in fiction competitions, so at least one is coming soon!

    Here’s some fleet-wide competitions currently going on:

  • SP Ace of the TIE Corps 2021

  • Every Single Player mission flown earns the pilot a point on the Kill Board and the top three pilots at the end of the month earn medals. Yearly, the top four pilots earn medals.

    Each mission only counts once for the year, but missions flown in previous years can be reflown for points on the Kill Board (but not additional FCHG points). The Kill Board statistics on the TIE Corps 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. The top pilot at the end of the year also receives the title of SP Ace of the TIE Corps 2021.

  • January COO Objective Scramble: Squadrons Dogfight

  • Pilots, There will be a rotating COO Objective each month for a chosen platform and goal. This month is Star Wars Squadrons in Dogfight mode.

    Objective: Submit your highest kill game in Dogfight mode flown between January 1, 2021 (0:00 GMT) and January 31, 2021 (Must be submitted no later than 23:59 GMT) by e-mail to tc-combat-ops-office@googlegroups.com The COO and COOAs will have access to these submissions and place them in an online tally. At the end of the month, the top three pilots will be determined and be given awards. In the case of a tie score, the determining factor is which pilot had the least deaths. If for some reason the kill and death counts are tied, then score will be the determining factor.

    To encourage further participation, each winning pilot per month will be given a rating of 3 points at maximum, scalable to 2 or 1 if less than 3 pilots participate a month. The top three pilots at the end of the year will attain the annual awards.

  • COO's Star Wars Challenge Episode VII - 2021

  • Pilots,

    Welcome to the 2021 refresh of the COO's Star Wars Challenge.

    Objective: Accumulate the most missions in a Star Wars branded approved multiplayer platform. You may submit PvP battles (Legion of Combat) or PvE battles (Legion of Skirmish). You have from 00:00 GMT on the first day of the month to begin and your submissions must be approved by the Combat Operations Office no later than 23:59 GMT on the last day of the month.

    At the end of the month the totals will be tallied for each pilot's LoC and LoS scores and totaled into a sum. The top three scoring pilots will receive the respectively monthly reward based on ranking.

    There will also be an ongoing annual ranking so you are encouraged to continue participation. The top pilot will be given 3 points for that month towards that ranking, reduced to 2 or 1 if there are less than 3 pilots participating each month. At the end of the year, the top three pilots overall will receive the annual awards.

  • Squadrons Completionist

    Given the current set of achievements in the game of Squadrons, a race for the entire TC on who will complete all the achievements of the game first. Any new achievements that will be added after Oct 2020 do not need to be completed.

  • Stay In The Lines Each week (or most weeks), LCM Neko will post art in the Tempest WSR. Choose your favorite and color it in however you want - crayons, watercolors, pastels, or anything - and email it to Silwar Naiilo (#12630) by the last day of the month. Neko will choose her favorite and the runners-up.

    For a full list of the current competitions:

  • Touched base with new CMDRs and pilots.
  • Processed evaluations.
  • Got sloppy drunk and played some Star Conflict with CM Victor O'Brien of Kappa, played some Squadrons too.
  • Provided comments to Phase I of Project Sovereign.
  • Helped CM Robert Hogan with his proposal.
  • Some light administrative work.

    I just want to tell you all that I could not be more proud to be Commodore of this ship, and look forward to living up to the great names that have preceded me. It's been great getting to know the new faces from other squadrons and discussing things with CMDRs.

    Until next time, the only way forward is THROUGH!
