ISD WARRIOR WEEKLY REPORT #11

REPORTING OFFICER: Rear Admiral Zekk Terrik
DATE SUBMITTED: March 22 2021

FROM THE DESK OF THE COMMODORE

We're still getting things moving on the Warrior, and doing our best with the addition by subtraction movement. Really happy to see CM Aardvark take control of Kappa and with some new additions to the ship, we seem to be moving in the right direction slowly.

Congratulations to COL Mordechi Wolfe of Sin for winning the History of the Warrior, although I had a hell of a time choosing between any of the submissions I received...a bunch came rolling in right at the last minute.

Shoutout to CPT Robert Hogan for placing in the last round of the TGT!

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 Flootena Granias to Rho Squadron!
  • 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! As soon as I quit having crappy weeks, we'll get that done.
    • 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 I somehow guessed all 5 questions right in Round 3. Swear.
    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. Rho Squadron will be first up, thanks to CPT acetiepilot for volunteering.
    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.

Neko will choose her favorite and the runners-up.
