TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #86 – Submission date: November 2nd 2014
Introduction

Welcome to a new TCCOM report!

This week we saw the re-release of X-Wing and TIE Fighter, two of our most important platforms, and the ones who actually were the reason for the very creation of the Emperor’s Hammer, especially TIE! I, for one, would very much like to see a Mac version of them, as it would even allow me not to open Windows to play, but I guess we can’t really ask for much more at this point. Kudos to gog.com for bringing our favorite games to the 21st century. I’m really considering flying their campaigns all over again, it’s been ages!

With the turn of the month, a few Orders of the Vanguard were updated, including yours truly, reaching 15th Echelon!

As it has been the tendency of the past weeks, we saw several officers arriving, while others leaving, mainly due to inactivity, which is sad. But on to the good news first!

The first one to arrive was COL Alexander Almasy, who joined Sin Squadron. He was followed by LC Miles Prower, who returned from the Reserves to join the same Sin Squadron! Also, former Fleet Admiral Den Darkhill took a COL rank to join Theta Squadron. Welcome back to all, I hope you will have a great time in this new tour of duty!

Coming from the Daedalus, SL Cormir joined Kappa Squadron, and he didn’t lose any time in getting his promotion to Lieutenant! Welcome to the fleet, LT Cormir!

SL Skek also managed to get his promotion to Lieutenant this week, so congratulations to you as well, LT Skek!

The aforementioned sad news was the AWOL of Lieutenants Asertym and Berkeley Hunt, both from Alpha Squadron. Too bad.

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.
