Cyclone Squadron Digest #27

March 17, 2007

Busy Busy Busy





     Greetings Cyclone Squadron, Wing X, and ISD Challenge.... Its been an exciting week to say the least, with all of Cyclone doing some decent flying activity and everyone is even getting involved in my B-Day run-on. I can't wait to see how it turns out.   




*You can click on the News button to take you to the TIE Corp's Main News Page. That we I only have to worry about repeating important things... Maybe I can figure out how to get that frame of the news page into my report neh?

*Welcome to CPT Bjorn Wolfblade who joins us from M/FRG Phoenix!

*Oh yeah if you can make it on Fridays... GO FLY MP!!!! Zosite is kind enough to host, lets see just a bit of Cyclone participation if we can get it. Sadly I work while that is happening.





*Some still copied straight from the Commodore's Report but maybe I can get something really super cool going. The sky is the limit. Maybe I can get the competitions pages automatically linked up here. Or not but its worth seeing what I can do.

*Squadron Competitions:

* Beirís Birthday run-on
With the lack of alcohol aboard the ISD Challenge Lieutenant Colonel Beir has run out of his famous Collie Brew. But rumors are that there is a warehouse out there filled with it. There will be a run-on posted in the Cyclone Board on the 10th. The entire Challenge is open to this competition. Start date is March 10th and end date is April 1st. IS-BR to overall best posts judged by Kadon and appropriate MoC recommendations for posts!

Starts March 10, 2007 ends on the 1st of April.

Thread here:

* Beir's Birthday

This is a GFX competition involving uniforms. At the last promotion party Beir ruined his duty uniform. Design a new uniform (picture) for him (the database) Yes I know that we are getting new ones but I want a old school one to put in my EH folder that has a cool spacey or Star Warsy background. OR that crazy multiple uniform stack is pretty cool. So it doesn't have to fit the confines of the database restrictions on size.

Starts March 10, 2007 ends on the 31st.

*Cyclone Pilot of the Month: March-April

In the grand (or lesser) style of the Wing X Pilot of the Week/Month. Cyclone will have its own ongoing... This is to keep the flying activity rewarded mostly. I will be doing side competitions with GFX, fiction, etc. IS-BW to pilot who flies the most that week. IS-BR to the pilot who is best overall that month. Starts awarding this week and goes until the last weekend of April. Then we start all over again.


* Fridayís Vaping Rhapsody
The new Multiplayer competition hosted by our own LCM Zosite. They happen every Friday at 15:30 EST on the #EHCOO channel. Platforms are XWA and XvT, and DFCs can be awarded.

* TOís Own
The title of Training Officer's Own will be awarded to the ship whose pilots pass the most IWATS courses per pilot in each month. For the purposes of this competition, Omega and Praetorian Elite Squadrons will be judged as separate ship-equivalent entities. IS-BR for the participating pilots.

* TIE Corps Training Competition
Every Saturday, 1300 to 1600 EST on #EHCOO
Multiplayer competition with XWA, XvT and IA. DFCs can be awarded.

* Competition Ė the spice of life...
A little friendly competition to liven up this very special report (TAC Report #250). This will be AD Masterís twenty first TAC report, in each of these reports at the top thereís is a movie/tv/game quote.
The first three to email AD Master with all 21 correct answers will win IS-GR, IS-SR & IS-BR (or subgroup equivalent).
The subject line of the email should read 'When TACcy Speaks...noone listens' :P
And don't forget to include your ID Line.
Let the madness begin!

* Letís get ready to RUUUUUUUMBLE!
Ahhhh January, the only other time of year AD Master care about professional wrestling, why? Cause its the Royal Rumble, and this was goooooood.

So following his current trend of shameless rip-off comps heís starting a new comp!
Start Date: 10th February 2007
End Date: 24th February 2007 (looks like it was postponed...)
Medals: IS-GW x3 (or subgroup equivalent)
Missions: Custom Missions
Info: One FREE (each platform), one winner (again each platform).
The three winners (you can only win one platform) will then have the opportunity to enter the 'Shameless Wrestlemania competition' in April for an IS-PW.
Currently heís hoping to have three custom missions of his done in time, but since he really hates making stuff under pressure (comes out crap and lame) heís not promising nothing.
Oh and don't worry, they will be beta checked before you fly them

* Master's Monthly Map & Mission Mayhem
Start Date: 10/1/2006
Parties Involved: EH-wide
Medals: IS-GR, IS-SR, IS-BR (or subgroup equivalent) each month.
According to the System Manual ( the EH is in control of ten systems.
Each month Master is going to pick a planet from one of the EH Controlled Systems* from the manual. Those interested will then have the remainder of the month to create a Empire at War or SW Galactic Battlegrounds or Jedi Academy map based on that planet.

*Master may throw in the odd other planet from SW from time to time with more bonuses.
Designers are free to do as they like with the map provided basics stay true to the System Manual information.
Maps will be judged on: Technical realization (use wat u got), general plotline & general enjoyment.
All maps should be submitted ala standard TACcy Rules and via the Custom BSF (
All maps will be judged by TAC.
Additional M: AD Master has decided to change the plot of his funkily named competition for the new year.
He has added an additional M! Now the comp also includes our flying platforms! So that means when he gives us a planet each month you can base a TIE or even an XW free on that planet! Awards remains as an IS-GR each month, and he has yet to give away a single one
February's World of the Moment is.....Aurora Prime!!!
The fabulous EH homeworld provides, warm days, cold nights, a Dark Jedi infested moon, three funky massive platforms and the ever impressive New Imperial City....think of all the fun you could have. MUHAHAHAHHAA!!!!
Winning submission will be judged by AD Master based on fun level, plotline and bribes! All submissions should go through the
Custom Battle Submission Form as always, with a MMMMM mentioned in the comments box.

* Ace of the Tie Corps
Starting this month, we now have a new monthly competition series - Ace of the TIE Corps. The concept is simple - the pilot with the most flown missions at the end of each month will recieve an Iron Star with Gold Wings and the title "Ace of the Month". You will be able to see the progress of pilots over time by checking the Pilot Kill Board. At the end of the year, the pilot with the most missions flown will recieve an Iron Star with Platinum Wings and the title of "Ace of the TIE Corps".
The competition is open to all members of the TIE Corps and the counts are based on missions.

* Golden Tug Awards 2007
It's time once again to award the famed and feared Golden Tug Awards!!!!!
06 Submissions:

* Frozen Doom Competition
The weekly multiplayer combat calendar events are returning! Starting with the Frozen Doom Competition!!! It will be held on Tuesdays from 1900 EST to 2200 EST!
Host is GN Ric Taldrya! Matches take place in #EHCOO, COME ONE COME ALL!
Having said that, DFCs will no longer be awarded for 24/7 LoCs. They will only be awarded for winning combat calendar events. If you do fly a 24/7 LoC match, e-mail the scores to

* Wing X Pilot of the Week/Month 4
Each week the Wing X Commander will choose a pilot he believes has performed better then any other pilot on the ship that week. At the end of the month, Challenge Commodore will look at the overall performance of every Pilot of the Week for that month, and will choose one of them to become the Pilot of the Month. Each Pilot of the Week will be awarded an IS-BR and each Pilot of the Month will be awarded an IS-SR. The Wing X Pilot of the week will always be chosen in the Wing Commanderís report.
