TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #82 – Submission date: October 5th 2014

Pilots, as you can see, I’m back from my leave a bit earlier than expected, and managed to release the report on schedule. On with the news!

Both Alpha and Delta Squadrons have filled their open Flight Leader positions this week. LT Lord Toxicon transferred from Beta to take on Alpha Flight 2. On Delta, LCM Nylan changed flights, leaving Flight 2 to become Flight 3 Leader. Good luck to you both!

We have also had a rank promotion, that took place just a few hours ago, and it was for LCM Nolij, who reached the rank of Commander. Keep up the good work, Commander Nolij!

Sin Squadron just saw the arrival of a new member, as CM Yun returned to active duty, after a while inactive. Welcome back to the fleet, Commander!

Once again Epsilon Squadron got a new pilot. SL Eggplant arrived from the Daedalus, and once again courtesy of CPT Landon Cruise, who was awarded a Medal of Instruction for his recruitment effort. Well done, Landon, and welcome, Egg!

CPT Landon Cruise had an amazing achievement this week, by overcoming the legendary COL Brucmack as the new Top Gun of the TIE Corps. Of course, different times and different games…but it’s the same club, and it’s an amazing achievement nonetheless. Congratulations, Landon!

The sad news of the week was the transfer of COL Daniel Stephens to the reserves. By doing so, he has his Vice Admiral rank restored. I hope he will rejoin us soon!

CM Chrome has announced his intention to step down from Beta Squadron Commander position. Potential applicants for the position are to speak to RA Elwood the Brave,

I have started arrangements for the award of the overdue Commendations of Loyalty. Some details still need to be sorted, but it should happen soon. Since the SOO is not available, I will choose for him.


* LT Tox is the new Alpha FL2! LCM Nylan is the new Delta FL3 Grats!

* Promotion: LCM Nolij to CM! Congrats!

* CM Yun joined Sin!

* New member: SL Eggplant!

* COL DS transferred to the RSVs.

* Beta CMDR open once again.

* CoL reccs are a go.

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.

Quotes of the Week

1 – LC Kyle Kroan: “They also say if you say 'Bruckmack' three times in front of a mirror, his spirit will appear to take away a random mission HS or 10 LoCs from you!”

Tried…a dude showed up, but it was not Bruc, I think it was CPT Hook or what’s his face…
