COMPETITIONS AND EVENTS

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

Thunder Trivia 11 postponed for the week, will hopefully be returning this coming week.

Thunder Squadron CAP flight:

Description: For the month of July we are on CAP. The pilot with the most LOS/LOC and/or SP missions becomes top pilot One point for every LoS, LoC and 2 points for any of the TIE/XvT/XWA missions flown during this month. Awards for placement are IS-SW, IS-BW. Prepare yourselves!

The Challenge with Words
Description: Description: 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.

Method: At the beginning of every month COL Marenta will generate a word search and post the link. Each month the puzzle will be related to something specific, planets, people, craft, manufacturers, wars, a movie/book/series, etc. At the beginning of the month, COL Marenta will announce the winners of the previous month and send out the next month’s puzzle.

Sigma Sigil:

Description: 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!


Challenge Championship League:

All teams will play one match per week, best of two. Picking up 3 points for a 2/0 win and 1 point for a 1/1 split. This continues for 7 weeks until the round robin is complete. Home advantage of picking faction first will be decided by coin toss, with the loser picking faction second. Map will be set to random for the first game with the same map played again in the second game. Tiebreaker ruling for teams on equal points at the end of week 7 will be decided by least total deaths.

After this the top four teams will play in the play-off week where 1st and 3rd will play in semi-final one and 2nd and 4th play in semi-final two. These two semi-finals and the final itself will be best of three with those placing higher in the league having home advantage for the third game if required.

All matches to be played in the EH-TC Discord at times agreed by the teams within the one week parameter set.

TIE Corps Book Club - Season 1:

Description: Book Club!

Every month, members of the TIE Corps will gather on Discord to discuss a novel, chaired by the WARD. At the end of the gathering, players will vote on the next book to be read and discussed.

Participation prizes for those who actively take part, IS-SR for the player deemed to have shown the most engagement and insight into the chosen novels

Trivia Grand Tour Season Six:

Description:
Each week on Sunday evening (usually), Plif will send out a link pointing to five trivia questions for everyone to answer. The trivia questions will come from the canon Star Wars Universe. Responses are due the following Sunday before Plif releases the next set of questions.

Bonus questions may be sent out intermittently, either attached to a normal week or coinciding with a holiday or special event. Answering these questions will count towards the participation rewards, but not the weekly/monthly/overall awards.

== Point System ==

It's pretty mathy, but the formula is:

# Correct + (5 / Time in Seconds) * 1.5

The intent is for all players to earn points based on how many correct answers they provided and the amount of time it took to provide those answers while still providing the most points for players that provide all five correct answers.

Example: If GN Frown answered all five questions correctly in 45 seconds, he'd earn 5.167 points that week. If LC Tempest answered two questions correctly in 35 seconds, he'd earn 2.214 points that week.

For any participant that has access to more than one database PIN, uses both to access the trivia and the second entry has a significantly quicker time than the first, the second entry will not be eligible for any time-related scoring bonuses.
== Weekly Awards ==

First place weekly from the Corps - IS-SR

Second place weekly from the Corps - IS-BR


== Monthly Awards ==

First place monthly from the Corps - IS-GR

Second place monthly from the Corps - IS-SR

Third place monthly from the Corps - IS-BR


== End of Season Awards ==

Note: For the End of Season awards, all players will have two weeks with a score below 5.0 replaced with 5.0

First place overall from the Corps - IS-PR

Second place overall from the Corps - IS-GR

Third place overall from the Corps - IS-SR

Fourth place overall from the Corps - IS-BR


== Participation Rewards ==

IS-CR for every 50 correctly answered questions.

IS-SR for correct answers at the following landmarks:

327 - Docking bay aboard the Death Star where the Millennium Falcon was captured (and later “escaped”)
725 - The odds against surviving a night on the frozen surface of Hoth
IS-GR for correct answers at the following landmark:

1138 - In honor of The Maker
Participation totals are carried over from comp IDs 2623, 2696, 2741, 2869, 2893, 2947, 2957, 2979, 3003, 3038, 3047, 3053, 3055, 3103, 3222, and 3244.

COMMANDERS CORNER

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.


Cogitatur una sabbatorum: Change begins with you! Look to what you can do to improve then help someone else out!


Questions, Comments? bring them to me. Complants? Take them to your XO!
