New House Imminent

D Surgo

15 July, 2024 12:49
32 ABY

We have finalized the preparations to open our new House. As part of that, we will split our existing House Palpatine- at an astounding 64 members- into two groups of equal size. This is so that they can engage in competitions, sharpening each others' blades, to prepare us for further incursions into the Unknown Regions. With this change, we will begin running Vendettas: large-scale competitions that pit the Houses against each other but reward handsomely in the form of assets that become part of your legacy.

If you're interested in this new venture, please message me (Darth Surgo) and I'll put you on the list. If you want to stay in House Palpatine, also let me know so that I can note that as well. Otherwise, the Force will guide my hand as I review my... spreadsheets. (Even a Sith Lord has to use office software sometimes.)

Further announcements will be made about the House, its name, its leader, and its makeup this weekend, after everyone has had a chance to consider their roles.

May the Force serve you well.

Kieran Yoyo Promoted to Commander

FA John T. Clark

11 July, 2024 16:44
32 ABY

From Typhoon Squadron CMDR GN Triji Boliv:

Since being promoted to Lieutenant Commander, Kieran Yoyo has been one of the most consistent members of Typhoon Squadron, getting on the board every month, even if not quite making the threshold for a merit award. That aside, Lieutenant Commander Yoyo has participated in every major engagement since joining, and always looks for ways to be involved with whatever is going on at the moment. He enjoys a variety of different activity types and can always be counted on to be a contributing member of the squadron. It is therefore my great pleasure to recommend a promotion to the rank of Commander at this time for Kieran Yoyo!

Congratulations, CM Kieran Yoyo!

Change of Command for Theta Squadron

HA Plif

07 July, 2024 07:34
32 ABY

From the Commander of Battlegroup II, RA fr0Zen:

Since taking on the open Theta Commander position in the Fifth Imperial month of year 30 ABY, Lieutenant Colonel Vapen Van'an has provided strategic leadership to his Battlegroup in Imperial Storm V and Imperial Storm VI, and was instrumental in our success Raising the Flag to become the current Flag Bearing Battlegroup of the TIE Corps Fleet.

Along the way he has amassed nearly 400 Legions of Combat, almost 2000 Legions of Skirmish, and six Imperial University Certifications to set a broad example for Theta Squadron. Of equal importance, he has filed 50 updates to the Imperial Holo-Records in the form of Squadron Reports to preserve Theta Squadron's history and culture into perpetuity.

A dedicated voice of critical thinking on matters large and small in Fleet Business, a dangerous Pilot in Theaters of Combat, an ally and trusted friend, Lieutenant Colonel Vapen Van'an now selects this moment as the time to pass the baton of leadership for Theta Squadron to Lieutenant Commander Matt Brass.

Returning to the active TIE Corps Fleet at the end of the Second Imperial month of the current year, incoming Commander-to-be Matt Brass has represented Theta Squadron broadly with skill in the cockpit, and dedication to his records maintenance in Uniform Updates and Imperial Navy Personnel records. Most impressively, he has demonstrated prowess as a scholar in earning five Imperial University Certificates, and has submitted additional narrative records to the Imperial Database.

As we prepare to defend our title as Flag Bearing Battlegroup for the TIE Corps Fleet, we celebrate Commander Matt Brass' placement and his selection of Lieutenant Commander Jai Thorne as his new Squadron Executive Officer. Lieutenant Commander Jai Thorne helps secure Theta Squadron's future with nearly equivalent accomplishments in Theaters of Combat, Imperial University scholarship, and dedication to the culture and records of our fleet.

Three cheers to LCM Jai Thorne, CM Matt Brass, and LC Vapen Van'an!

Scorpion Squadron Opened in Battlegroup III

HA Plif

05 July, 2024 07:36
32 ABY

As we continue to gain pilots, the roster is once again expanding to meet the demand. Scorpion Squadron has been opened in Wing XXII aboard the MC90 Renegade in Battlegroup III. Like the other squadrons on the Renegade, it's an Infiltrator Wing unit so they'll be flying Rebel craft to confuse and surprise the enemy. The enemies we're encountering in the Chaos won't generally hesitate to fire on Rebel ships either, but we'll take every moment of hesitation we can get and opportunities for subterfuge do sometimes present themselves.

Scorpion Squadron's CMDR will be GN Jarek La'an, who'd been serving as a Flight Member in Typhoon Squadron and continues to serve as the Communications Officer for the Emperor's Hammer overall. Good luck in your new role!

Scorpion Squadron's first two FMs are fresh out of IWATS and came along at the right time to help us open a new squadron. Welcome to the operational TIE Corps, SL Kylan hayez and SL Cadan Zhalto!

From Tempest Squadron CMDR MAJ Morgoth:

In his brief career in the TIE Corps, Lt Race Kesyk has racked up numerous victories and been awarded multiple merit medals. He has become a valuable member of the squadron and put in a ton of work towards our ReMob standings in the last month alone. He is both vocal about flying and quick to offer assistance in any endeavor his Tempest Squadron mates take on. He has quickly become a valued member of the squadron and fits right in with the rest of his squadron mates. It is my honor to recommend his promotion to LCM. Well Deserved Race!

From Alpha Squadron CMDR CPT Witchblade:

Lieutenant MsMayham has been a fantastic pilot here in Alpha Squadron during 2024.

From the Commander of Battlegroup III, VA Locke Setzer:

SirCaleb has been a stalwart pilot of Battlegroup III for years, with long-term service in Eagle and Firebird squadron that has seen him amass over a dozen merit medals in his time at the rank of Captain. Additionally, he has served as Squadron Commander of Firebird for nearly seven months, providing stable leadership to the squadron. While he will be stepping back from leadership, I want to ensure that his service to date is recognized properly, with a well-deserved promotion to the rank of Major.

Congratulations, MAJ SirCaleb!

Jagged Fell III Promoted to Captain

FA John T. Clark

20 June, 2024 11:09
32 ABY

From Typhoon Squadron CMDR GN Triji Boliv:

In the four months since his last promotion, Commander Jagged Fell III has made a substantial and lasting impact not only to Typhoon Squadron, but to the TIE Corps as a whole.
His personal contributions of almost 300 single player missions, multiple multiplayer engagements won, competitions participated in, courses completed with the Imperial University, and continually setting the bar for activity within Typhoon Squadron make him a valuable addition to Wing X.
But that just scratches the surface of what Commander Fell really brings to the table. He has pioneered the implementation of TFTC missions into the battle compendium, and submitted multiple battles that will be flown and enjoyed for years to come. He's also directly influenced the quality of life for the pilots of Typhoon, by taking ownership of his flight in ways rarely seen in many years.

Commander Fell has shepherded his pilots, checked on them regularly, and not just encouraged their participation, but gone out of his way to facilitate that participation by arranging matches and helping troubleshoot technical challenges, both within the squadron and out. Commander Fell has been a valuable member of the squadron since the day he joined, and continues to impress me with his leadership and commitment to excellence on a daily basis.

For these reasons and many more, it is my pleasure to recommend Commander Jagged Fell III for immediate promotion to the rank of Captain!

Congratulations, CPT Jagged Fell III!

32 ABY

From Tempest Squadron CMDR MAJ Morgoth:

Since joining Tempest LT Mrowaksu has excelled at bringing the enemy to their knees. His spectacular flying and dedication have made him a valued member of the squadron. His contribution to Tempest's ReMob efforts went above and beyond the call of duty. He has earned a few merit medals in his short tenure in the Tie Corps and I foresee him earning many, many more. His career shows great promise and he will be an asset to the team. It is with complete conviction that I recommend he be promoted to LCM.

Congratulations, LCM Mrowaksu!
