ISD WARRIOR WEEKLY REPORT #10

REPORTING OFFICER: Rear Admiral Zekk Terrik
DATE SUBMITTED: March 15 2021

FROM THE DESK OF THE COMMODORE

Looks like things are moving slowly in the right direction. We're continuing to lose our inactive members aboard the Warrior, and get some fresh ones in here. We're just waiting for the TCCS to swing by Kappa's evaluations, and we're waiting on Theta's medals to come down.

I appreciate all the great submissions I received for the History of the Warrior competition. There are some clearly creative minds aboard the Warrior, and I am really impressed. I will likely feature some of LCM Wodi Untok's more hilarious parts in my future fictions. I'm sorta brain dead tonight, though, and suffering from some good writer's block lately, so we'll see about it in the future. In the meantime, I am looking forward to some great Warrior Mascot submissions! That's currently the only competition I have going as I think of another one here. Gimme a little time.

Okay, I know you all scrolled to the bottom because you want to know who the new Kappa KMDR is. First, let me say that I had two really great applicants in LCM Wodi Untok of Theta and LCM Aardvark of Kappa. It does feel good knowing that my decision here will not have much affect on the ultimate trajectory of their TIE Corps career, which is absolutely trending upwards, and this is nothing but a little bump in the road for the person not selected.

I'm not exaggerating when I say I agonized over this decision for literally days. Both candidates gave amazing answers to the questions I asked, and are clearly CMDR material sooner than later. So, let me cut to the chase. I am proud to announce the new Kappa KMDR - CM Aardvark!

WARRIOR ROSTER
  • The roster currently stands at 46 members as we continue to trim the fat and add some leanness. I would like to welcome SL Crashwalker to Kappa!
  • Congratulations to LT Kazraran of Sin on his promotion!
  • FLEET NEWS
    • 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. We have migrated ALL episodes of TTPP to the official EH YouTube channel.
    • I am proud to welcome COL Doyon to the crew of The TIE Pilot Podcast. We are currently working on episode 8, where we intend to have LT fr0Zen of Rho on to get a new guy's perspective on the EH! We're tired of interviewing these old farts!
    • Led by COL Mordechi Wolfe of Sin Squadron, we have progressed to Phase II of Project Sovereign. MAJ Genie and COL Silwar have taken the lead in designing the Imperial Armory.
    • A new TIE Corps logo is soon to be released! It's my understanding that we are just working on the coloring.
    • TIE Corps in Battle, March assignments are out!
    • Trivia Grand Tour is out, and boy did I absolutely bomb the first AND second rounds. -_-
    SHIP NEWS
    • I have had a couple of people reach out to me about being long-term interested in a CMDR spot. I want to encourage anyone who's interested, even if you've been a CMDR before, to reach out to me so we can begin the process.
    • Warrior Mascot competition is out! See below!
    • Warrior MP night was a good success, looking forward to doing it again! I am also looking to draft people interested in hosting it, which will give us more flexibility.
    SHIP COMPETITIONS

  • Warrior Mascot - Due to a very weird conversation we had in #theta where we were making fun of Firebird Squadron, we came up with the idea of Fireporgs. It occurred to me that the ISD Warrior needs an "unofficial" mascot (although if I like it enough it'll be made official). So let's what you guys can come up with! This is my first time trying a kind of out there art competition...I hope it is successful!

    It can be a serious or hilarious mascot, as long as it doesn't look anything like that weirdo mascot the Phillies have.

  • FLEET COMPETITIONS

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

  • TIE Corps In Battle

  • TIE Fighter - TIE TC 76 Mirror Universe

    X Wing vs TIE Fighter - XvT TC #23 The ASF Fishing Trip

    X Wing Alliance - XWA TC 8 Hammer to Anvil

  • 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.

  • March COO Objective Scramble: The Invincibles

  • Pilots, There will be a rotating COO Objective each month for a chosen platform and goal. This month is based upon a combination of two benchmarks in Dogfight, the most kills combined with the least deaths.

    Objective: Submit your best game scoreboard screenshots from Squadrons Dogfight mode containing the most kills and the least deaths via e-mail at tc-combat-ops-office@googlegroups.com between March 1, 2021 (0:00 GMT) and March 31, 2021 (23:59 GMT). 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 kills and deaths are tied, score will be the breaker.

    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.

    Platforms Involved: X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, X-Wing Alliance, Squadrons.

    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.

    Art creation competitions:

  • 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.

  • The TIE Pilot Podcast - Join COL Doyon and me as we interview people from all across the history of the TIE Corps and discuss topics of interest to the fleet! Got an idea for a show? Receive a free Iron Star if you do! Let myself or COL Doyon know!
