TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #83 – Submission date: October 12th 2014


With Beta CMDR Chrome immediate transfer to the reserves, the position became vacant, and applications are currently being accepted by RA Elwood the Brave. For not completing his minimum tour of duty as a squadron commander, CM Chrome’s rank was reverted back to Lieutenant Commander. I do hope he decides to return to the fleet one day.

Actually, we have an interim Commander in Beta already, as CPT Nutrientman, from Delta, has stepped up to fill in for the position while a permanent replacement is found. As such, the position remains vacant, so please apply to RA Elwood if you are interested.

We have also had a couple rank promotions! Alpha CMDR Landon Cruise was promoted to the rank of Major! Also, LT Doc, from Epsilon, was promoted to Lieutenant Commander! Congratulations to both, and you are buying for the week!

The ISD Hammer Evaluation for September has been processed, and medals have been awarded. Congratulations to the following pilots:

- GN Dunta Polo – Silver Star of the Empire
- MAJ Landon Cruise – Silver Star of the Empire
- GN Anahorn Dempsey – Bronze Star of the Empire
- LT Lady Labyrinth – Bronze Star of the Empire
- LT Hellionexus – Bronze Star of the Empire
- LT Lord Toxicon – Bronze Star of the Empire
- RA Elwood the Brave – Palpatine Crescent

ISD Warrior sponsored TIE Golf has commenced. This should be fun to watch, although I much rather be playing it.

Delta Squadron has a new pilot. SL Skek 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, Skek!

Other than Chrome, LCM Upsidexumop has decided to transfer to the Reserves, from Beta Squadron. It’s sad to see another pilot go. Hope you return soon, Ups.

Commendations of Loyalty recommendations were submitted to the Fleet Commander, and hopefully we’ll be able to see them awarded in the near future. My apologies for the delay in this.

* Promotion: CPT Landon Cruise to MAJ! LT Doc to LCM! Congrats!

* ISD Hammer eval medals awarded!

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.
