ISD WARRIOR WEEKLY REPORT #24

REPORTING OFFICER: Rear Admiral Zekk Terrik
DATE SUBMITTED: July 5 2021

FROM THE DESK OF THE COMMODORE

Hello folks! I am happy to be back from Texas and after 3 weeks of no reports, we have quite a bit to catch up on. We are in the throes of Imperial Storm currently, being amused by the inferior forces of the Hammer and Challenge beating each other senseless. We expect combat any day now.

Congratulations to CM Fr0Zen who has taken over Rho Squadron and CM Wreckage who has taken over Sin Squadron. Great things are already in motion.

MSEs are in the process of being...processed.

Our focus is currently on winning Imperial Storm - again. Stand by for orders, pilots. Combat is coming!

The most recent Riddles of the Jawa competition is attached, please see the bonus question below...and read it carefully.

WARRIOR ROSTER
  • The roster currently stands at 51 members as we continue to trim the fat. We added lots of new members since the last report! Please welcome: LT Westric Davalorn to Rho, LT Audis Graves to Sigma, LT Red 5 to Sigma, LT Leosaul Shimall to Sigma, and LT Monk to Sigma. All of these fearsome pilots started out as SLs and have since been promoted, congratulations!
  • Let us also congratulate LCM Shang Khan of Kappa on his promotion, CM Fr0Zen of Rho on his, CM Wreckage of Sin on his...more are in teh workd!

    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.
    • STAND BY FOR COMBAT ORDERS, WARRIORS. The Challenge and Hammer are currently weak and defenseless. Okay, they were that way before IS3 started, but that isn't the point.
    SHIP COMPETITIONS

  • Riddles of the Jawa

    Like every Jawa, LT WarperJawa of Sin speaks in riddles and virtually impossible to understand Galactic Basic. As a translation tool, he has provided the Commodore with a series of riddles and puzzles to be included in every ISD Warrior report.

    Unfortunately, the Commodore is far, far too dumb to figure them out and needs the help of the pilots of Wing II to sort them out.

    ---

    Every week, RA Zekk will include a new puzzle designed by LT WarperJawa in the Warrior report. The first pilot of Wing II to return a fully correct puzzle to me will receive 5 points, the second will receive 4 points, and the third will receive 3 points. Every entry after that will receive 1 point. You will also receive 1 point for answering the weekly bonus question correctly, and an IS-CR for every 4 entries regardless of where you placed. These will be determined by the timestamp on the email you send.

    Starting this week, you may also spend one point and receive a hint! You may do this as many times as you want, but you will always receive a minimum of 1 point no matter how many points you spend.

    Naturally, neither myself nor LT WarperJawa will be participating since we have the answers. ;)

    This week's bonus question: The Empire Strikes Back primarily takes place in two sectors. The Sluis sector that includes the Dagobah system and this sector that includes the other planets in the film.

  • FLEET COMPETITIONS

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

  • TIE Corps In Battle - June Assignments

  • TIE-TC 202: A Wormhole Too Far - Download here!

    XvT-TC 14: Orion Base Crisis - Download here!

    XWA-TC 25: Ticket to Chimaera - Download here!

  • 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.

  • Guess the Uniform!

    Every week you will be presented with five uniforms. You have to guess to which pilot that uniform belongs to. +1 point per correct answer. Score ties are settled by the time it took to solve it (shortest time being best). Be warned the questions will get progressively more difficult!

  • 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: http://www.isdhammer.org/ImperialStorm_III.pdf

    The winning Team at the end of the 30 turn game will see all participating pilots earn a TIE Corps Meritorious Unit Award (MUA).

    The top 6 scorers in each of the 3 streams (top LoC count, top LoS count, top HS% SP count) will earn Iron Stars as below:

    1st: IS-GW

    2nd: IS-SW

    3rd: IS-SW

    4th: IS-BW

    5th: IS-BW

    6th: IS-BW

  • 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!
