< Salute, pilots from Wing X, Wing Commander TBA (¿?), Commodore TBA (¿?) and last but not least TIE Corps Commander Viper Pred >


Welcome to this, my tenth Weekly Report for my beloved Squadron, the mighty Tempest! The Mighty Tempest, "The Riders on the Storm".

Damn, what can I say? It must be some sort of damnation for your weekly (or bi-weekly... ...monthly?...) source of trouble and reasons to rent a blaster and buy a bullet (no, of course bullets have nothing to do with blasters but we do not support suicide as we do not support cowardice), aka. CMDR. You see... seems it's enough for me to be a couple of days offline and voilá! Those blasted morons from the NR betray us on peace negotiations (thanks heavens), attack our borders, make some of our TIE Corps comrades disappear (even one from Tempest as you'll read below! :-\) and... far worse than everything else: they push all of us into doing stuff for the real, screwing all slacking behaviours we might have been developing to date.

Anyways, the thing is that as on each and every August (and to add insult to injury), I'm gonna be on semi-LoA during all the month. And what the hell is that, you may wonder. Well, that's just the silly term I pulled out to refer my current status: only full available during weekends and rarely the rest of the week unless luck provides, although I use to have at least a daily hour or so for all this but I'll usually need it for the CMDR/website mantainer paperwork alone.

And well, I hope that fact will be enough to explain why the report you're going to read below...


Ok, I hope that fact will be enough to explain why the report that comes below and you wouldn't read no matter what and then it would be interesting to know why on earth are you right now here and reading this in case you're actually reading this which comes to mind as a very slim possibility and I'm digressing once again... */me takes air*

...Why this report is so short compared to previous installments... ^_^u

Tempest Patch!
I.) A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!! (aka. Squadron News)


Imperial mini-Logo Black alert! Or red! Homo-rainbow delta something whatever! Following the breaking of a peace attempt with The Emperor's Hammer, as silly and unbehaving as it might sound, the NR is attacking the borders of EH territory. They say the Admiralty Board has moved into strategic operations mode (for a change after an age of performing under the "lazy meditations" one) and the TIE Corps, as the only EH group still making sense enough to place a couple of orbital-genocides here and there for those piles of parasite-filled rotten anarchic flesh to calm down, is moving on on a preemptive attack. The mighty Chal will carry on with the head of the battle along with the ISDII (Everlost) Subjugator, the ISDII (SOViet haven) Warrior and the MC80b (Fishbucket) Redemption while we do what we know best: obliterate stuff while we make the Universe to regret having ever met us!

TC Logo

      Here begins "Operation Serpents Sortie"!! All of ye are called to wear your performing-caps® and do something of the following (better if you do everything of the following):

      For SP-l0vers: Fly the battles TIE-TC 184, XvT-TC 105, BoP-TC 16 and XWA-TC 33! Scoring per battle basis and lots of Iron Stars featuring fancy wings based on such scoring, from GW to BW.

      For MP-l33ts: Fly... Multiplayers matches, what else?! But don't report them into the database yourselves! If you want them to count for this particular competition submit them as if they would be normal SP submissions using the proper format as explained on [MP/2] IWATS Course and along with their screenshots. Either IS-GW->IS-BW or IS-SW->Nothing for grabs, depending on participants.

      For those who call themselves 'artists' : Do... errr... this: "Create images that showcase the battle at the border of EH space. We are battling the rebel "New Republic". The battle is raging so give it your all, send us graphics that You made that show the preparation and commencement of the counter-attack - RA Jedi Eclipse/DEAN." And hang me if I know what they really want but they hand out the classic battery of Iron Stars with GR->BR ribbons! There's also something about the creation of a new TIE Corps banner to use on recruiting if you're interested.

      For those who dare to make the rest to read their stuff: Feel free to punish everybody around writing about the following topics and forcing your uppers to read it:

      - Your reactions/thoughts about the betrayal (mass genocide children-free please ^_^)
      - Preparing for take-off and the fight at the border (Your perspective) (did anyone say drunk briefings?)
      - Your ship (as a whole) fighting the New Republic (that implies Wing X people actually doing something, behold!)

      Then again, IS-GR->IS-BR for grabs, based on originality, descriptiveness... the number of bottles you invoice to the TCCOM... the same as usual...

      All submissions shall be sent to this e-mail address: tc-fleetops@googlegroups.com with an appropiate subject denoting the category. All submissions shall be CCed to your CMDR as well; use the same very e-mail you abuse to harass the poor dude on a daily basis. :-P

      There you go, my Riders! Make someone to feel proud of you as the pilots of the TCCOM's Own Squadron! Somewhere... somehow... yeah, well... ¬¬

Imperial mini-Logo Sadly, one of the first things those fans of democracy and other nasties did was to make several of our pilots to just disappear from their last assignment on Golan II Station "Aspire 2". We've been unable to contact them for some days already and they're hereby declared as MIA until further word from them. Well, one of them was Lt. Colonel Murleen, our comrade on Tempest 2-2. Now this is a sad day for "The Riders on the Storm"; losing a Squadron mate is never easy to withstand, and Murleen has been there for longer than I can remember, even as CMDR of the decomissioned Omicron Squadron on this very Wing before being reassigned here with us. This was the OFFICIAL paragraph.

      Tsk... Murleen, dammit!! Reply that TCCOM e-mail and tell him you're still there so he can change your current status from MIA to RSV and restore your LC rank! Being inactive like a bloody flowerpot is one thing, but falling into ostracism is a no way for an officer like you! >:F And this was the UNOFFICIAL paragraph...

Imperial mini-Logo And now for some good news!! Know ye all that Commander Dunta Polo, former Tempest Flight II Leader, finally decided to return where he belongs as one of our best Riders after a short ToD on Wing XXI. He's now assigned on my own Flight as Tempest 1-4 and, what can I say? It seems he still mantains that unhealthy hobby he's widely known for which consists in stealing each and every medal available from other potential grabs. ;-) Welcome back, Dunta!! I'm glad to see you around again, and you can rest assured that we'll somehow find reasons to claim you owe us some alci gallons. ^_^

Imperial mini-Logo First bad, then good, now BAD²... As all of ye might already know, General Jondaar Domi, who has been serving as Wing X Wing Commander since... since... well, let's just say that he was there before Kaplooey Day®; the good old General has stepped down and requested his retirement into TC Reserves due to heavy RL time constraints. Hell, Sir! I can assure you'll be missed like hell here, and you can be sure you'll find again a spot for ya if you ever decide to return HOME. ;-)

      Know that General Domi, being one of the most veteran TIE Corps/Emperor's Hammer members with more than 10 years of service under his belt, was there heading the restoration of this Wing X and the ISDII Challenge as a whole after hell broke loose last September; thanks to him and a few of our comrades we can currently claim to be in almost the same status we were before, almost all our material, membership, proud history and unparalleled motivation preserved for this new TC era. For all his hard work, he has been awarded The Silver Star of The Empire on his retirement. And trust me when I tell you that he would have deserved even more but I'm not invested with authority enough to decide on that. :_\

      Currently we've no Wing Commander nor Commodore and applications are not being accepted yet, which means Major MAJOR MAJOR Gio Palermo and myself are managing this Wing day-to-day operations for the time being. We'll see what happens after the long-announced Roster Change... (F-E-A-R!!)

Imperial mini-Logo For those of ye who still haven't heard about (what nasty hellhole have you been hiding in? >:P), the whole TIE Corps Fleet has now a new global mailing list which shall replace all ships' particular mailing lists, and that includes our trusty wingx@isdchallenge.org. From now on all official communications (spam), reports (spam), strategic tactical briefings (spam) and executive orders from the Admiralty Board (nasty spam!) shall be sent through tiecorps@googlegroups.com. I WANT ALL OF YOU SIGNED AS OF NOW IF YOU AREN'T SIGNED YET. In a few days I'll check who is still missing from its membership and chances are that I'll start pestering them to death for they to sign themselves immediately. It's very important! Why so? Well, because if you aren't there you won't recieve any TC communication unless it's a personal one or comes from the Squadron-level and you may think the Fleet is dead when the only -dead thing- there would be yourself. >:-J

Imperial mini-Logo And FINALLY!!! Finally I could get those pending MSEs from May, June and July processed by the SOO! These were those of ye who proved yerselves worth of a merit commendation during those last few months:

      Colonel Dan Bonini! Recieve no less than The Bronze Star of The Empire for your impressive and, more importantly!, mantained levels of activity on May, which includes your performance on last Raise The Flag (lite).

      Commander Dunta Polo! Recieve the coveted Bronze Star of The Empire you too for the same very reasons. Your activity during last RtF was indeed at the NUTS side, and you were crucial for the rising of Tempest as the new TCCOM's Own!

      Lt. Commander Sergeyli! Recieve The Palpatine Crescent for your amazing flying activity and commitment towards your Squadron as Flight Member during the month of July, where you even managed to tie crazy Dunta as SP Ace of the TIE Corps!

      Lieutenant Chris Pape! Recieve The Imperial Security Medal for what it has been one of the best first ToD months I've ever seen on a new recruit. You have been commended for your breathtaking dedication to date, and you can be sure your merit awards will improve if you just mantain this levels of activity!

      CoRoneR™! You... ¬¬... bah! Get these PC (May) & ISM (June and July) and get lost!

Imperial mini-Logo And, as I briefly mentioned above, Lt. Commander Sergeyli and Commander Dunta Polo tied up as SP TIE Corps Ace of the Month on July for a couple of nice IS-GWs! Well done, you've just outperformed the rest of the Fleet, gentlemen. ^_^

     Moreover! LCM Sergeyli himself got "Tempest Pilot of the Month" on July!

     Not enough! LCM Sergeyli ALSO got "Challenge Top Gun" title on July! Dammit, Serg, help me to hate you a little! xD

     AND MORE! Lieutenant Pape got "Wing X Pilot of the Month" on July! For his first week of service: the inhumanity! 0__o

     And to bring an end to so much glory! LT Pape was named "Tempest Student of the Month" on July after having been crazy enough to pass no less than 7!!! IWATS Courses during that single week, even having achieved 100% score up to 3 times!

     Now THIS is how we're used to do stuff among "The Riders on the Storm"!! As your CMDR I'm proud of you, pilots, and I look forward to see ye all shining again on the ongoing TC-wide competition this month. ^_^

Imperial mini-Logo New battles! FREE missions! Just what you've been waiting for, and all thanks to the efforts displayed by personnel from the Tactical Office. VSD Sinister crew with FA Anahorn Dempsey dooming from above just cannot stop providing us reasons to keep flying our slacking arses off for the sakes of the TIE Corps! :-D

XvT-TC 34: An Empire at War by FA Anahorn Dempsey
XWA-FREE 145 : Mantis Surprise by MAJ Mark Schueler

Imperial mini-Logo And there's a new Multiplayer Matches automated reporting system for ONLY "24/7 LoCs" events available for you at the TC database!! Find it as "Submit MP match result to the Combat Operations Officer" at your administration menu after login. It's pretty intuitive so I hardly doubt you'll have any trouble using it. Find all details about it on [MP/2] IWATS Course ("Reporting a Match" section) and remember you'll need your screenshots for your submissions to be processed.

     And all this thanks to the crazy and endless efforts of that hellish being that Fleet Admiral Dempsey, our Happy TACcy and TC database creator and administrator, has demonstrated to be as stated on the previous news entry. Thanks a lot, Ma'am! Hell knows where we would be now if not for you!


( Oh, come on! I've no time for silly Spoilers! This is WAR, gentlemen. This is WAR and we are NOT Sparta (although we're already twisting some throats to add that title to our current ones). Now go and do something USEFUL with your pathetic lack-o'-lifes! )

EH Logo
II.) On how to obliterate a starfighter with your knight lance® (aka. Squadron Status and On-going Competitions)


Imperial mini-Logo Today ends "On the Verge of Epic" Tempest-only competition and I'll try to have those results ready as soon as possible. However, I must admit that despite I've seen a decent number of my Riders participating there I was actually expecting to see ALL THEM participating... Remember gentlemen, just because you escaped safe from the last NR onslaught at "Aspire II" Station it doesn't mean you'll escape from the TCCOM that easily on the upcoming TC Roster Change. The best way to keep your arse safe, you say? Easy there! Do your best on "Operation Serpents Sortie" in behalf of Tempest!!

Imperial mini-Logo Then again, those Wing X MWEs from May, June and July have been processed, indeed, but all MoCs are still pending yet already reccomended. Patience, my minions, patience... either that or kill the COMM, Vice Admiral Bruk; whatever you think it's best... (but if it's Bruk dammit! Where's the doubt? ;-D)

Imperial mini-Logo Yet another weekly Tempest website update, as usual. Don't forget to check the site often as one of your primary sources of useful information and bollocks of all kinds. All complaints are to be sent directly to ME, now I allow ye to send those complaints directly to me. I won't have time to read them anyways... ^_^

Imperial mini-Logo And here, gentlemen, you have the current status of our 2 ongoing monthly competitions! Ummm... Sergeyli, Dunta, Chris... some from John T. Clark... good, good, but hell! I'd be sooooo happy to see some new Tempest names there. To dream is free, they say. :-P

Tempest Pilot of the Month - Aug '09

LCM Sergeyli - 58 missions
CM Dunta Polo - 57 missions (and Tempest Pilot of the Week on 08/03 - 08/09)
LT Chris Pape - 40 missions
CM John T. Clark - 5 missions

Tempest Student of the Month - Aug '09

LT Chris Pape - 3 IWATS Courses

Imperial mini-Logo "TAC's citation hunt"? Errr... no since this competition is supposed to be finished long ago, but I decided to keep this here in order to keep you all updated on our progression when it comes to earn Battle Citations for the mighty Tempest. Now the thing is to make that big red number below to change as quickly as possible flying even Space Invaders if necessary! ;-) Oh, and if you are interested in a detailed list you have it at the end of this report, right below the Squadron Roster, merciless copied from HERE

Right now we've a total of -3 """new Battle Citations""" since we started counting here. Yes, CM Polo is back but LC Murleen is out. D-A-M-N

II.a) Squadron Competitions

L Tempest Pilot of the Month - Aug '09
Details HERE
Feel free to send me pilotfiles as if there'd be no tomorrow and you might bore me to the point of me reccing a pointy IS-BW to beat you with it. A minimum of 10 missions for the weekly IS-BW and an absolut minimum of 40 for the monthly one. Not to mention the "Tempest Pilot of the Month" title, which you shall use with pride and caution if you don't want to get yourselves killed.

L Tempest Student of the Month - Aug '09
Details HERE
How was that thing your mom was yelling at you all day? Ah, yes... STUDY!!! Monthly IS-BR up for true swots out there! Already passed IWATS Courses count as long as you manage to beat your former score. And hey, extra IS-BR to whoever manages to get a 100% on any Course!

L Ont the Verge of Epic
Details HERE
Wow!! You might think this one comes to be very similar to our last "Fishing Contest" one. Well, that's because it is almost the same except for the importance on the "epic" thing instead on "Battle Citations", and also because your CMDR was a little bit on the pissed side after seeing your performance on that one. To the point... of giving you another chance. Go AND FLY! WRITE! DRAW! Or else...

II.b) Wing / Ship Competitions

L Wing X Pilot of the Week/Month
Details HERE
As usual, gents! Our almighty WC, General Domi, will award a bronze shinie in a weekly basis and a silver one per month to whoever demonstrates he's perfectly capable of making the rest of us looking as worse as possible. Fly missions, take IWATS, participate in other comps, drink... and well... drink. Everything counts! Especially to drink. :-D

L Challenge Top Gun
Details HERE
Similar to 'Wing X PotM' one, but this time as a flying-only. General Domi will backstab the one whose flight record dares to be the best on a given month with no less than an IS-SW. Interesting given that rumour someone has been spreading around that we're actually... PILOTS. Don't ya think? ;-)

II.c) Emperor's Hammer / TIE Corps / TC Battlegroups Competitions

Oh! Oh my good Lord!! But if I'm going to repeat some TC site info here. Please, have mercy!! :-P

L Operation Serpents Sortie: Single Player
Details HERE
So the DEAN was kind enough to make an entry for each competition division and you wanna me to write a comment for EACH and EVERY of them?!! Suuuuuure... do you see that green "HERE" link above? Use it. >:-P

L Operation Serpents Sortie: Multiplayer (Multiplayer!!) ORLY?
Details HERE
So the DEAN was kind enough to make an entry for each competition division and you wanna me to write a comment for EACH and EVERY of them?!! Suuuuuure... do you see that green "HERE" link above? Use it. >:-P

L Operation Serpents Sortie: Graphics
Details HERE
So the DEAN was kind enough to make an entry for each competition division and you wanna me to write a comment for EACH and EVERY of them?!! Suuuuuure... do you see that green "HERE" link above? Use it. >:-P

L Operation Serpents Sortie: Fiction
Details HERE
So the DEAN was kind enough to make an entry for each competition division and you wanna me to write a comment for EACH and EVERY of them?!! Suuuuuure... do you see that green "HERE" link above? Use it. >:-P

L SP Ace of the TIE Corps, Aug 2009
Details HERE
Simple, pretty simple: fly as hell, make your CMDR's life miserable BSFing your stuff and earn medals for it. IS-GW, IS-SW and IS-BW for the 3 best ranking players at the Single Player Kill Board. What else do you need to fill your IDline with useless titles as myself? No MP division yet; maybe they're still fixing MP stuff at the new database. But don't panic, my bloodlusty subdits, for it will be there again sooner or later. >:-)

L TACcy Quotes
Details HERE
See, the TACcy tends to release a bunch of random chosen words making some sort of composition all together. And she calls this creature a "TAC Report". Read those "reports", find the movie quote lying there and e-mail FA Dempsey as quickly as you can with your answer! This competition has been running for many more months than I can remember so I think it will be run again no matter what, despite there's no database entry yet. Well, now as soon as you see a TAC report around you know what to do. ;-)

L TACcy Speed Test
Details HERE
Bi-weekly competition involving flying speed. XWA/XvT FREE mission to be announced on each TAC report for you to finish it up as quickly as you can. Fly on Easy, turn on ingame cheats, mind only about Primary Goals. Emulate the bloody Roadrunner! WHATEVER!!! But complete the mission in record time and send your pilotfile DIRECTLY TO TAC, NOT CMDR. IS-SW for those fast enough to lose their pants on their way plus IS-BW for whoever happens to fly faster than TAC herself (and steal her pants? no, don't think so... :-P).

H DJB's Inter-Club Training Event (Multiplayer!!)
Details HERE
Let's see... What would be the best way of dealing with our "new" Dark Jedi Brotherhood (DJB, former rDB) friends in order to show 'em our willing to cicatrize old injuries between our clubs? What about sending them all to hell via MP while punishing their prides by the book? >;-D All Saturdays 24/7 on Undernet #outerrim IRC channel!

H Operation: Artificial Insanity (A.I.) (Multiplayer!!)
Details HERE
For those of you crazy enough to think that messing with the silly AI is funny, know that the EH is now signed on this curious BSC event which will last 'till next October. Now not only your human opponents but your very PC can make fun of you too! Report all matches results into the event page as on any WoW and someone from the COO Office will check your achievements as soon as the competition is over, no matter if they have something better to do.

The Tempest!

III.) NO!! Performances involving the infamous trio (beer-holoTV-chips) don't count for anyone but CMDR here!

  • 08/05/2009 - Answered one of my classic "WTF?! e-mails" stating he'll do as necessary to go back into TC action ASAP.

IV.) Do it or DO IT. Don't even dare to try! (aka. Squadron Standing Orders)

  1. Fly AT LEAST a mission/battle from the Compendium!!! You're a pilot, not a wardrobe, and this is important!
  2. Take an IWATS. And if you actually learn something maybe you're doing miracles too! ;-D
  3. Fly some MP. Plenty of comps. to do it. If only you could feel The Power of the Pwnage Side©®!!
  4. Drink; as a truly Challengite this is a must to perform. If only you could feel The Power of the Daze Side of the Booze©®!!
  5. Participate in some competition if possible. Tempest is here to trample & impale any opposition hence our nickname!
  6. Contact your Flight Leader or Squadron Commander at least once a week!! This is BUT VERY important in order to mantain your arse within the roster. CMDR may well have the nasty mania of kicking mute people out of the airlock...
  7. Be always loyal to the TIE Corps Fleet, then the ISDII Challenge and Wing X, then Tempest.
  8. Kill any rebel scumb, dirty smuggler or pathetic pirate on sight and with a smile on your face. Cleaning 'da house!
  9. Have fun doing all this stated above! Now this one is a f****** order; if you don't accomplish with this one you're really doing nothing. Go away and make something better with your life like having a pathetic RL job, trying for your wife to not cheat you with a REAL PILOT... ahem...
  10. It would be sooo simetric and perfect for you to have a 10th order... but you haven't. :-P


Note on order 4: if you can't actually realize this IS NOT a RL way to go you should request transfer to the Redemption or something... ¬_¬

Rabid EwokZos THE NUTS Another Rabid Ewok

V.) Someone flew over the Ewok's Nest (aka. CMDR's Corner)


Well, as I stated when I started this report, my RL time now is quite limited to being here now telling ye scary tales as usual. However! I've got something which surely will make your day, and I honestly think that's fair enough for these times of lazyness, overall chaos and empty jars everywhere.

See... sometimes we, as the cockpit-headed dudes we are, always following orders we don't clearly understand beyond the fact that we're made to kill things and turn to smoky wreckage whatever can't be killed by the book, even when we're pretty sure that all we manage to accomplish will be for the sakes of some particular Admiral's greedness and nasty, unbehaving behaviours... sometimes we just cannot see the whole picture, the final consequences of each and every thing we do as dedicated Imperial officers serving this last worthy remnant of The Galactic Empire that The Emperor's Hammer is. Yeah, cry me a river. The thing is that we keep vaping stuff and that makes us happy, what means that we're happy with our job and that put us all in some odd percentage of people (less than 1%) around the Galaxy... around ALL Galaxies and Dark Tower levels even!

Then there's that silly peace we've been hearing about on the last issues of "The Aurora Times" (which came in newspaper format instead through Holonet for the simple reason that the EH has a deal with Paperboy® for him to keep his bike out of our hyperspace paths, in order to prevent heavy losses at Fleet-level) but we'll deal with that in due time the only way we know; the Admiralty Board perfectly knows that the only way we know to spread peace is to spread a thousand space bombs FIRST so I'm still wondering what the hell... oh, well... :-P

Heh... the funny thing here is that those Rebels, NR-l0vers, epitome of all what is stupid and corrupt on this poor Galaxy (not counting the EH Command Staff for the -corrupt- thing, of course ;-)), have also their own good times of realizing the final consequences of their own acts. They're good beings! They're heros! They'd make sith to save all free races from the oppresive Imperial yoke and whatnot! Well... sometimes... sometimes they just cannot foresee such consequences. And why so? Easy there: they're stupid, as you can see below. ^_^

Endor Holocaust!
From some anonymous Imperial officer's perspective...

JIAJIAJIAJIAJIAJIAJIA!!! And thinking that we only wanted those silly furballs to leave us alone while we were working on our military installations. Thanks Palpatine there we got the "sentinel of freedom" almighty Rebel Alliance to take vengeance in our behalf after the disaster at that Imperial bunker. Tooooooooo bad, soooooooo pitiful, that this is not exactly what they were looking for! ;-D

And YES, I've also heard those silly theories of an odd hyperspace wormhole briefly opening and eating all debris when the Death Star II hyperdrive regulator was destroyed, not to mention the Rebel Alliance helping around with tractor beams blahblahblah-whistles-blahblahblah... sure thing... does "Rebel Propaganda" mean something for ya? Did you ever see any Ewok not unslaved and working on my Secret Destillery™ near The Chal's reactor core along its whole family? There you go. >:-J
