TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #81 – Submission date: September 28th 2014


Once again, the highlights this week are upon changes in a Squadron Commander position. After over 2 years in the position, General Exar Kit has stepped down from Sigma Squadron Command, closing a very successful tour of duty! To replace him, CPT Flelm was selected, transferring in from Sin Squadron. Once again, I’d like to thank GN Kit for the great work performed for the last couple years, keeping the squadron alive in a time of need. Also, I’d like to congratulate CPT Flelm on his new command, and wish him luck!

The Flight Leader position left open by CPT Flelm’s promotion was promptly filled by MAJ Wraith, previously in Sin’s Flight 3! Good luck to MAJ Wraith in his new position as well!

Epsilon Squadron got a new pilot this week. SL Masterseb arrived from the Daedalus, courtesy of CPT Landon Cruise, who was awarded a Medal of Instruction for recruiting the new member. Well done, Landon, and welcome, Seb!

There were a couple of promotions this week. SL Masterseb and SL Mhtty were both promoted to Lieutenant! Congratulations to both, and let’s hope this is the first promotion of many!

A couple new fleet wide competitions have been approved! Idealized by CPT Landon Cruise, and sponsored by the TCCOM’s office, a new recruitment competition has started. Also, next month will start the newest edition of TIE Golf, sponsored by Warrior COM, HA Frodo March! Check the details in the Competition Center, and make sure you participate! An IS-PW is up for grabs!

The sad news of the week was the AWOL of SL FBK, SL Ragnarok and CPT Ric Gravin, and the transfer of MAJ Jedgar to the reserves. I hope they rejoin us soon!

Beta Squadron has started a new push towards using the message boards. Excellent! I hope more follow!

As a reminder, Commendations of Loyalty recommendations will resume when we manage to get the reccs from the SOO.

Competition runtime: 10/11/2014 - 11/22/2014 (1 month, 25 days left)
Units involved: TIE Corps
Competition medals: IS-BW to each pair winner for each hole, IS-SW to winner of each hole, IS-GW to Overall Winner after 5 holes (IS-SW to second place). IS-PW to the winner if he beats the grand champion of TIE Golf 09 afterwards!
Description: The competition will be played over 5 rounds. Each player who signs up will be paired with another player, and they will play the 5 rounds against each other. Because of this structure, you sign up for the whole 5 rounds. No dropping out! Players who do drop out forfeit all claims to any prizes they may have already claimed.

Failure to complete one hole will result in a penalty of 3 times your opponent's score on the hole.

Failure to complete two holes will result in disqualification and forfeiture of any medals already claimed.

Each round the players will be assigned a TIE Free Mission to fly. The objective is score as few points as possible. The lowest score wins!

The scoring for missions will be as follows:

Mission Score + Lasers Fired x 2 + Warheads Fired x 50 - Laser Hits x 3 - Warhead Hits x 50

Each pair of competitors will be assigned one mission a week, for 5 weeks starting on October 11th 2014.

Each week, the one who scored lowest in his pair will win an IS-BW.

The lowest overall score for each mission (hole) will be awarded an IS-SW. The lowest overall score, which will be all 5 mission scores added together will win the IS-GW. Runner up will get the IS-SW.

Once the five rounds are done, the overall winner will be given the chance to fly an additional hole against the Grand Champion. If the winner defeats the Grand Champion, he will be awarded the coveted IS-PW.

The current Grand Champion is HA Frodo March.
