TIE Corps Command Report
Weekly Report #88 – Submission date: November 16th 2014

Welcome to a new TCCOM report!

As you’ve heard earlier today, RA Elwood has been promoted to the rank of Vice Admiral, for his work as the Commodore of the ISD Hammer. He’s certainly earned this promotion for his amazing performance in a position that is very demanding. Congratulations, VA Elwood!

Another great news is the award of the Gold Star of the Empire for ISD Warrior COM, HA Frodo March, for his long-term performance in the position. Well done, Frothy!

Besides the mentioned award, several merit medals have been awarded for the October evaluations. The complete list of this month’s merit awards follows:

- HA Frodo March – Gold Star of the Empire
- GN Anahorn Dempsey – Silver Star of the Empire
- GN Dunta Polo – Bronze Star of the Empire
- MAJ Landon Cruise – Bronze Star of the Empire
- MAJ Wraith – Bronze Star of the Empire
- VA Elwood the Brave – Palpatine Crescent
- MAJ Plif – Palpatine Crescent
- CPT Flelm – Palpatine Crescent
- CM Nolij – Palpatine Crescent
- LCM Hellionexus – Palpatine Crescent
- LCM Doc – Palpatine Crescent
- GN Dax Corrin – Imperial Security Medal
- COL Gyssler – Imperial Security Medal
- LCM Len Eode – Imperial Security Medal
- LCM Nylan – Imperial Security Medal
- LCM Lady Labyrinth – Imperial Security Medal
- LCM Hav Antiel – Imperial Security Medal
- LT Masterseb – Imperial Security Medal

The Medals of Communication have also been awarded for last month, so congratulations to all awardees of those medals as well! Haven’t got one? You are not bugging your CMDR or spamming the lists enough.

Along with Woody’s promotion, we’ve also seen the promotion of Lieutenants Hav Antiel and Lady Labyrinth to Lieutenant Commander! Earlier in the week, Lieutenant Len Eode also got his promotion to LCM! Congratulations to all of you!

We’ve got a veteran rejoining our ranks from the reserves, as CM Arne Saknussem has joined Alpha Squadron just today. Welcome back to the active fleet, Commander! Always nice to see former members rejoining!

The TCPM review is ongoing, and I must say that I haven’t made much progress in this week due to time constraints. I’m sure in the next couple of weeks there will be much more progress.

Warrior COM sponsored TIE Golf has ended, with MAJ Plif emerging victorious! Congratulations! And now to try and take the title from HA Frodo himself, good luck to both players!

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.

It is such a pleasure to be able to reward some officers with their so much deserved rewards. Makes this job so worthwhile. So, once again, congrats to all medal awardees and promoted officers, especially both Ship Commodores, to whom I have much to thank for, since without their great efforts my job would be next to impossible at this point.

Have a great week, everyone!
