TCCOM REPORT #24

REPORTING OFFICER: Fleet Admiral Plif, TIE Corps Commander
DATE SUBMITTED: 28 Jan 21
ACTIVE DUTY ROSTER COUNT: 157 (+6) Including 3 NPCs

NEWS

The roster is up another six, continuing an upward trend we've been seeing ever since Star Wars Squadrons came out and even a bit before that.

We have a new pair of awards rolling out based on a proposal from CM Robert Hogan: the TIE Corps Commander’s Unit Award (TUA) and the TIE Corps Meritorious Unit Award (MUA). They're basically unit-level versions of the Iron Star earned by placing in a competition as a squadron, wing, or ship. More details about each can be found in the Pilot Manual. Note that Iron Stars previously awarded to members of a winning unit will not be updated to these new medals, these are new prizes to be earned in competitions going forward. For his contribution to the Corps, CM Hogan has been awarded the Silver Star of the Empire.

Speaking of the Pilot Manual, I've remixed it again so that I can update it on the fly. It's got the two new awards mentioned above plus a number of corrections based on feedback from AD Turtle Jerrar and COL Silwar Naiilo. The graphic elements in this version were put together or inspired by COL Mordechi Wolfe. Thanks, gents!

With input from AD Turtle Jerrar on the technical aspects of making this work in our uniform creation tool, TTT, we're making a change to how Flight Certification Wings are earned. Instead of just being earned through the FCHG rating system, the wings are now earned through a combination of all three rating systems. Basically, add up your FCHG points, combat rating points, and your co-op PvE rating points and your wings will be based on the total. This change isn't live in TTT yet but work is in progress to make that happen.

TITLE HOLDERS

The Raise the Flag event each year confers three titles to recognize the top ship, squadron, and individual pilot from the competition. These are the current holders of those titles.

TIE Corps Flagship: ISDII Warrior

TCCOM's Escort Squadron: Rho

TCCOM's Wingman: GN Pickled Yoda

TCCOM'S COMPETITIONS

TIE Corps in Battle will return in February.

The Trivia Grand Tour had a bonus round where the goal was to find and correct the error in five intentionally erroneous statements, many thanks to everyone that helped me test out that format and kudos to CM Robert Hogan for the quickest time to submit all the corrections.

SP Ace of the TIE Corps is running as always, only a few days left to earn one of the top three spots on the Kill Board to secure an Iron Star.
