This time, we'll be treating all admirals as being assigned to Avenger Squadron. Avenger will be assigned all the same tasks and be eligible for all the same rewards as the other squadrons, minus the objective and fighter changes. Note: Admirals with a squadron assignment from a dual-profile setup will participate with that squadron, not Avenger. == Rewards == "Participant" is defined as any pilot that makes at least one submission that contributes to any of the tasks listed above. 5 tasks completed - Squadron may change its Objective, all participants awarded an IS-BW 7 tasks completed - Squadron may change its Objective and its fighters to any Tier 1 ships, all participants awarded an IS-BW 9 tasks completed - Squadron may change its Objective and its fighters to any Tier 1 or Tier 2 ships, all participants awarded an IS-SW 11 tasks completed - Squadron may change its Objective and its fighters to any Tier 1, Tier 2, or Tier 3 ships, all participants awarded an IS-GW First squadron to complete 11 tasks - TUA for all participants from that squadron Second squadron to complete 11 tasks - MUA for all participants from that squadron Third squadron to complete 11 tasks - MUA for all participants from that squadron == Notes == Each individual pilot may only complete a battle, mission, or IU course once for credit towards the tasks listed above. Submissions that satisfy conditions presented in multiple tasks will count towards all of those tasks. For example, completing a battle that with a new mission high score and an overall score of 75% of the battle high score would count towards all three related tasks. == Starfighter Tiers == Tier 1 - TIE Fighter, TIE Interceptor, TIE Bomber, Assault Gunboat, TIE Heavy, TIE Striker, TIE Reaper.

TIE Corps in Battle Season Three: One battle each from TIE, XvT, and XWA will be assigned monthly. Pilots will fly the battles and submit their pilot files through the database normally. The TCCOM receives a copy of all BSFs, so neither pilot files nor BSFs need to be forwarded to the TCCOM unless the submission gets queued in the database. In the case of a queued submission, send the pilot file to the TCCOM. The pilot with the highest score each month in each platform will earn 8 points. The next highest score will earn 7, the next highest 6, then 5, then 4 and so on. All submissions will earn at least 3 points. Any mission high scores will earn 1 bonus point and any battle high scores will earn 2 bonus points. High scores are determined at the time the BSF was submitted on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, both pilots will receive the bonus points if a processed high score is overtaken later by another pilot. Points will accumulate for the season for more awards and the overall top pilot will also receive the title TIE Corps Battlemaster. The points earned by each pilot will also be added to their squadron's total and their ship's total. At the end of the season, the participants from top three squadrons and the top ship earn awards. Lasts until 30 June 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. lasts until 31 Dec Trivia for the Challenged: One trivia question every weekday - points awarded to all, and whoever has most points at the end of the week wins an IS-BR.

You're in a position of leadership which means you have some additional duties beyond that of a standard Flight member. For those that haven't taken the TIE CORE course from the Imperial Academy, please do so. By not taking it you will limit yourselves to the Rank of Lieutenant and no higher. The course is not difficult and can be done in 30 minutes. Great job in keeping focused. I apologies for not being in chat more often these past few weeks. Been dogging it out at work. Nature of the beast. Feast or Famine. End of the month evals coming up. Awards will for MSE will be posted in the first week or so of the new month. Say "Hi" in chat when you get in there. Let the squadron see ya. Also Explore the idea that LT LegionX had about a SWS uniform. What do you think? Good, Bad, and the Ugly accepted in this discussion.
