TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #87 – Submission date: November 9th 2014
Introduction

Greetings,

Monthly Ship Evaluations are due, and they have already started popping in my desk. They will be processed this week, and you should have your due awards by the end of the week, hopefully.

Also noteworthy is that I have commenced a review of the TIE Corps Pilot Manual, as you might have imagined with the mailing list chatter. As you can imagine, it’s not an easy task, and after it’s completed It will be sent to the senior TC officers for ideas and reviews, and after that sent to the Fleet Commander for approval.

HA Dempsey is on Leave of Absence until the 14th, which means all TAC business are on hold until that time.

LT Asertym returned to Alpha Squadron after being AWOL’ed last week. We’re all very glad to have him back, but this also emphasizes the importance of keeping in touch with your commanding officers, to prevent unnecessary removals.

Another arrival was for Commander Hawkins, who has returned to Kappa Squadron after a while away. Glad to have you back, Commander!

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.

GN Pickled Yoda: “I feel like this exchange might end up there next week, so I have to get in on the action. Or will that be too meta?“

Wait, how did you…?!? Never mind…

2 – HA Anahorn Dempsey: “If my memory's right, it's one of those things I have yet to accomplish!”
