===>INCOMING TRANSMISSION

Ramblings

 

    <SALUTE>

     Greetings Cyclone Squadron, Wing X, and ISD Challenge.... Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream. It is not dying, it is not crying. Lay down on the floor and surrender to the void. It is shining, it is shining. Then you may seen the meaning of within. It is feeling. It is feeling. I gotta stop listening to (GUESS THE BAND) every Sunday morning when I do reports.

http://mb.emperorshammer.net/viewtopic.php?t=4712.

* TIE Corps Squadron Tournament
Thats right, the Flight Office has a new competition running! THE TIE CORPS SQUADRON TOURNAMENT! It will be a simple matter of flying one of the three missions (one for each platform per week). The Squadron with the best participation over the course of the 4 weeks (4 rounds) will win IS-GWs for all participating members! If there is a TIE, the highest score between the tied Squadrons will win.
This week's missions are:
XvT-Free 200
TIE-Free 262
XWA-Free 126
Remember not to send the files to Frodo, simply BSF them and he will do the rest from there!

* The Number of the TIE Flying Beast
655 Graduates have passed through the TIE Tactics course to date, the 666th to complete it successfully will receive an IS-GR - only way to have a chance is sto take the exam - and hopefully be the 11th to do so!

* Build That Mission
The first pilot to pass the new TM/3 course with 100% will earn an IS-BR!!

* The Corellian Connection
Every quarter of the year, the TM prof will provide the briefing for a mission. The briefing will include a basic storyline, but won't be too specific. People can build a mission using that briefing question ad submt em to the TM prof. Missions will be judged based on technical aspects, originaity, and overall feeling. Each quarter, the winner can win an IS-BW (each time). People who win 3 times get an IS-SW (only 1 per PIN), people who win 5 times get an IS-GW (one per PIN). Starts on June 1st and ends on June 30th.

* 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.

* 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...
MUHAHAHA.
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 year..it 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 (
http://sysman.emperorshammer.net/) 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 (
http://tac.emperorshammer.net/tacdb/batsubmit.asp)
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

Anyway....
February's World of the Moment is.....Aurora Prime!!!
http://sysman.emperorshammer.net/aurora.php
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!!!!!
Details: http://mb.emperorshammer.net/viewtopic.php?t=4496
06 Submissions: http://mb.emperorshammer.net/viewtopic.php?t=4441

* Wing X Pilot of the Week/Month 5
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.
