Alright, Epsilon Squadron! Warm up your engines. During the next month or so we need to be active and participate to show the Warrior and the Challenge that their rightful place is our support, as the Hammer must come out on top!
From RA Phoenix:
"Each team has a force of vessels built using the old XWA points guide - along with a few more modern additions - and over the next month will take and hold worlds on this map to gain points. When they try to take worlds from one another, or their forces meet on the map a battle will ensue, which is where the membership at large come into play as we will make use of a SP FREE mission (top 4 scores per side) and a percentage of all the Legions of Combat / Legions of Skirmish that a side can wrack up during the 3 day combat window.
As this is effectively a massive board game the first few turns are usually uneventful as all teams spread out from their respective homeworlds. With the blessing of the 3 team captains I am therefore processing two turns a day for a few days to speed us along to our first encounter, think of it as a board game on fast mode.
I would encourage each of the teams to discuss tactics, share the links to the googledrive space holding the team updates and generally enjoy the one-upmanship etc via Discord."
Our very own Gytheran has received a much deserved promotion to CM! Great job!
I would also like to congratulate LC Genie and GN Stryker on their promotions!
I will also keep the following paragraph in the report as it COO policy
As a COOA I need to mention to not report the amount of kills as 1 when you go to submit an LoC or LoS. You need to instead report the actual amount of kills.
We have been seeing a large influx of members, both new and old, coming to us recently! I would just like to remind everyone to greet and welcome those coming in and to help them with any issues that may arise.

The Challenge with Words: After a particularly bad batch of Chalquilla was distributed by Inferno Squadron, medical was inundated with severely hungover and somewhat illiterate members of the fleet. The tanks had been infected with a spore that ate sugar and spit out alcohol, like yeast. But, this spore also had a side effect, it secreted a neuro- inhibitor that ate away people’s knowledge. To help “stimulate” some learning, Inferno, along with the medical crew, have started sending out word puzzles to help the members of the fleet regain some of their lost knowledge.
Sigma Sigil: Sigma Squadron has been brought back from the dusty corner of a disused hanger aboard the Warrior. To go along with our shiny new Bombers and Interceptors, we require a new patch!
FA Turtle Jerrar has kindly done an updated high-res patch so we aren't flying around with paint flakes falling off.
The only stipulation in place is that the patch be predominantly made up of purple and gold, to honor the history of Sigma Squadron.
If you are stuck for ideas of a starting platform, please do not hesitate to contact me, as I have a draft patch drawn up.
Good luck to all and thanks in advance!
Imperial Storm III: Imperial Storm is a turn based war-game that pits all three Battlegroups against the others over a map of the planetary systems that we are currently near.
The teams will do battle against each other for control of the map, earning points for holding systems and attempting to deprive the enemy of their own.
Battles are fought using a scoring system that takes into account all Legion (LoC/LoS) earned during the combat window, alongside the average scores of a teams top 4 SP pilots.
Full rules can be found here:
Imperial Storm Rules
The winning Team at the end of the 30 turn game will see all participating pilots earn a TIE Corps Meritorious Unit Award (MUA).
