FROM: Lieutenant Commander LegionX, Thunder 2-1 Reporting
DATE: 2021-05-23
SUBJECT: Thunder Squadron Weekly Report #27


Welcome Thunder Pilots to this week's report!

This week's report brought to you by LCM LegionX:

Good Afternoon/Evening/Morning Thunder. Welcome to surviving another week, and now let's discuss a few bits of news. First off Congratulations to all who have received their medals from last month's MSE's, new shiny medals to add to your collection which also means it's time to update your uniforms! Our CMDR wanted us to keep up to date with those so let's not slip back to before where uniforms don't get updated for months. Remember that the Tempest Tailoring Tool 3 is w out and being encouraged as the new Uniform maker for all squads, so be sure to update your software too if you haven't already. If you need assistance with Uniform making, know that every week I do check up on the squads uniforms and ATR, and I have a backup folder of everyone's uniform as they should be. So if you need help to make sure your uniform is correct, or need help entirely with making your uniforms, send me an email or a DM in discord and I will be more than happy to help you.

Congratulations are in order for LC Shadowclaw who achieved a Palpatine Crescent, CM Dynamus for achieving his first Bronze Star of the empire, and LT Green for receiving his first imperial Security Medal. Free rounds of Chaquilla for them all!
In further news, Squad (Re)Mobilization is coming to a close tomorrow so unless anyone here has any last minute miracles they want to perform, we are pretty much locked in. We will be awaiting word from LC Shadowclaw on his return on his opinion on how we fared during this exercise.

Also, thank you to all who answered the check up email I sent out earlier. For those that didn't don't panic, I will be sending you emails here shortly.


Thunder Trivia:

One trivia question, for a total of four questions during the weekday - points awarded to all, and whoever has most points at the end of the week wins an IS-BR.

Every month, the highest scoring pilot wins an IS-SR, and every pilot with 40 points or more wins an extra IS-BR.

Additionally, there are incentive IS-BRs awarded at 50, 100, 250 and every further 250 points

TIE Corps Exercise: Squadron (Re)Mobilization 3:

== Assignment ==

All TIE Corps squadrons are assigned the following tasks:

Complete 30 battles from the Battle Center
Complete 10 battles from the Battle Center with a score at least 59.50% of the battle's high score
Complete 50 free missions from the Battle Center
Complete 25 free missions from the Battle Center with at least 59.50% of the high score
Set 5 new mission or battle high scores
Submit 30 battle or mission reviews with at least 30 words each, must have completed the mission or battle within the last 30 days
Earn 100 Legions of Combat

Earn 10 Legions of Combat with another EH member on the opposing team
Earn 25 Legions of Combat with another EH member on your team
Earn 25 Legions of Skirmish with another EH member on your team
Complete 15 IU courses
Submit 4000 words of fiction divided into as many separate pieces as you'd like
== Admirals ==

TIE Corps and Emperor's Hammer admirals aren't normally assigned to squadrons, so they wouldn't have a unit to participate with. 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. Infiltration squadrons only: A-Wing, X-Wing, Y-Wing, Z-95. Note: New Republic fighters like the RZ-2 A-Wing and T-70 X-Wing are NOT included.
Tier 2 - TIE Advanced, TIE Defender, Missile Boat Mk.I, Missile Board Mk.II, TIE Phantom Mk.I, TIE Raptor, Scimitar Assault Bomber. Infiltration squadrons only: B-Wing, T-Wing, V-Wing Mk.II.
Tier 3 - TIE Dragon and Spectre Advanced Missile Boat. Infiltration squadrons only: Shadow Class Y-Wing and E-Wing.

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.
Every month, the highest scoring pilot wins an IS-SR, and every pilot with 40 points or more wins an extra IS-BR.
Additionally there are incentive IS-BRs awarded at 50, 100, 250 and every further 250 points.

WORDS FROM OUR CMDR, MAJ Tygra Shadowclaw:
I will be depending on the Flight leaders to step up. 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.

Words from the LCM:

So now we are coming to an end with Squad re:Mob, we will be pushing forwards with other squad based competitions to help with squadron activity. My own personal goal is to help increase activity, but I understand that real life is still a thing and needs to be taken care of first. As long as you keep in contact with either myself, CM Dynamus, or LC Shadowclaw (when he returns from his move) you'll be fine. That said, I hope to hear from you this week and look forward to participation in these future competitions and exercises.
