< Salute, pilots from Wing X, Wing Commander Domi , Commodore TBA (¿?) and last but not least TIE Corps Commander Jarek La'an >


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

It comes obvious that you just don't know the basis on how to leave your CMDR alone, gentlemen... I was lucky of have been able to fly a single mission... ON TESTING... last week. The rest of my flying attempts were kindly frustrated by your performance. Which is exactly what you are supposed to be doing, I know but... oh, well... let's put it this way: this very report you're now reading was due on last Monday or Tuesday. Since this one was delayed chances are the next one will be delayed as well, especially considering that I'll need to take a little LoA from 04/12 to 04/15. And in the end my bet is that I'll find myself talking about your May faults next September... :-P

For the time being: competitions come and go, Flight Leader goes but none comes (yet), SOO dares to tell us what to do on a new TIE Corps Pilot Manual, new FREE mission released, aaaaaaaaand....

Praetorian patch VS. Tempest patch = Tempest patch

Nuff said!! :-D

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


Imperial mini-Logo Tempest Squadron, The Riders on the Storm, the worst bunch of flying drunks the known Universe has ever seen and I have the pride to command have prevailed over Praetorian Elite Squadron and raised as winners of "Fire Demons vs. Storm Riders!", the competition/challenge where both Squadrons were engaged for the glory and the rights to be reckoned as certified NO-LIFE Beings®!!

       And your Wicked CMDR cannot do anything but to forward all ye, gentlemen, his most sincere congrats on your outstanding performance plus his thanks on your accomplishments on behalf of Tempest. Now *THIS* is the Squadron I've been waiting to command since I stopped playing with that Playmobil Pirate Ship™. Please keep up there your splendid activity and provide hell to whoever dares to challenge us again on months ahead; as I always say, nobody dares to challenge us and keeps being three-dimensional! >:-)

      The mandatory rain of IS-SWs already arrived to your inboxes, I know it because I wasted about 10 minutes of my preciousssss life including them on your ATRs. However, don't expect to see them on activity trackings of this report because such nonsenses belong to next week's one. -Delayed- is the keyword here, my bad... no wait! YOUR bad for it was your fault due to your amazing activity you slackers!!... (?) ... whatever *I* say... ¬¬

Imperial mini-Logo With great sorrow, a dirty handkerchief and the mandatory desire to kill someone I must announce you today that Commander Vitaru, Flight Leader of Chaos Crew, has recently sent me his official request to be transferred to the TIE Corps Reserves due to heavy RL pressures and other terrible behaviours I won't state here just in case any of you comes to be sane yet against all odds. I'll remember him as one of the best officers I've ever seen, let alone an excellent Flight Leader and friend, and I'm pretty sure many of you will do exactly the same... at least those of you whom CM Vitaru isn't indebted to for I perfectly know he fled with way too much money for a simple FL and I take you can say bye to all those credits you lent for him to buy booze.

      We're gonna miss you badly here, Vitaru!! Please don't forget to punish us all with your nasty verb from time to time through Wing X mailing list! ;-)

      For the rest of you, know that from this very moment on I'm accepting applications for Tempest Flight III Leader. What should you include on your applications? Not so important; I already know you well, face it. It would be enough to tell me what are your short/medium term plans for Chaos Crew plus the number of barrels you're ready to send over to your CMDR's office on a weekly basis. And ONLY if I don't recieve applications from any of you on next few days I shall open this spot for the rest of the Fleet; we don't want to spread insanity around, do we? (*ejem*) Ok, we do.

      Oh, btw, you'll notice that CM Vitaru has not been deleted from this report Squadron Roster and that his retirement is not yet stated on "Squadron Medals/Transfer/Bribes" section nor on his ATR. Why so? First, because at this very second his official retirement request has not been approved yet by the TCCOM. Second, because this report comes D-E-L-A-Y-E-D. And third, because I would have finished writing this unnecesary-extended news entry already and that's not the case until... NOW.

Imperial mini-Logo He did it... we did whatever it was on our hands to stop him and yet he did it. Know ye all that the TIE Corps Strategic Operations Officer, Vice Admiral Viper Pred, with help from other fools like FA Dempsey, LC Zó... with help from other suspects who still need to be spotted has finally completed, released and ordered us to follow to the letter the new TIE Corps Pilot Manual. You can find it HERE or using the appropiate link at the TC database; you'll easily find it due to its intuitive name "TIE Corps Pilot Manual" you see.

      Not necessary to say that reading and being familiar with this unspeakable document is MANDATORY for all TIE Corps officers so I want you all downloading it and pretending to be learning something from it within the hour. I'll just kill whoever I catch hiding a bottle between the Manual and himself, provided the fact he refuses to that bottle to be confiscated by his CMDR.

Imperial mini-Logo Fleet Admiral Dempsey, Tactical Officer of The Emperor's Hammer, strikes again on yet another attempt to spam the whole Galaxy with her crazy designs. Basically, she just cannot stop releasing stuff from that spooky (or was it 'Sinister'?) Victory-class Star Destroyer she commands and she came up with this one:

XWA-FREE 144: Core Squadron: The Callen

      Worth a try? Of course not since the last battle/free missions you should ever fly in order to keep yerselves with that nice taste of quality mission design is TIE-TC 46 as everybody knows. But you're gonna fly it anyways, right? ;-)

Imperial mini-Logo Not him again... -__-U Errrr... know ye all that the Polo guy won everything and that's it...

*General Domi reverses LC Zósite's head with his Wing Commander's baton®*

      *OUCH* (:__P Ok, Sir... on my way...

     Know ye all that Lt. Commander Polo, Flight Leader of Heralds of Maelstrom, managed to get under his belt the two monthly Tempest titles from last March thanks to his impressive activity which makes the rest of us too look like... like... like somebody not him. In addition to that he also stole monthly Wing X titles and even SP Ace of the TIE Corps! So far:

      LCM Dunta Polo is hereby known as Tempest Pilot of the Month for March '09 with no less than 148! missions flown.
      LCM Dunta Polo is hereby known as Tempest Student of the Month for March '09 with 2 passed IWATS Courses.
      LCM Dunta Polo is hereby known as Wing X Pilot of the Month for March '09
      LCM Dunta Polo is hereby known as Challenge Top Gun for March '09
      LCM Dunta Polo is hereby known as SP Ace of the TIE Corps for March '09

      Have our most sincere congrats on your accomplishments, Lt. Commander, but know also that if it would be for me I'd get you and...

*General Domi reverses LC Zósite's head with his Wing Commander's baton® - 180º*

      *OUCH* ...and... and I'd use your head as...

*General Domi reverses LC Zósite's head with his Wing Commander's baton® - 360º*


Imperial mini-Logo BWHAHAHAHAHA!!! I did it! Last edition of "I think therefore I lose" Tempest-only competition involving little mind challenges lasted for no less than 26 minutes! ^_^ The winner of this third edition was no other than Commander John T. Clark, Tempest 2-3, who clearly demonstrated to be the person you should look for in case you are not sure on further booze distribution attempts from your deranged CMDR.

      ?... No, not that he would be able to fix it by any means, but he could be the perfect turkey for CMDR's point-blank shooting while you try to recover what is yours! >;-D

      Next goal: to extend this competition's duration up to 30 minutes. Wish me luck, my Riders, for I'm gonna need it with these brains wandering around. :-P


( Spoilers! Oh, geez... why don't you just leave your CMDR alone for a change? Spoilers... spoilers again... Ok, here I bring you yet another bitter truth. I'm pretty sure that many of you already heard our Majesty, Emperor Palpatine, was not actually killed when XO Darth Vader decided he would make a fancy addition into Death Star II reactor core after falling through more than 400 levels for fun. However, know that all you have been told about him after that very moment is not the truth. So you want the truth there, right? Ok, but later don't say I didn't warn you!:

Click on this little pic above and be amazed with your Majesty looking for job!

And remember: things can change to hell for EVERYBODY as EVERYBODY can have that kind of bad day! :___| )

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


Imperial mini-Logo Don't look know, but I've already sent Tempest MSE to our Wing Commander, so you can expect more shinies to come on days ahead. No wait... *I* can expect ALL shinies to come to me on days ahead; the only thing you can actually expect is to hate me forever because I only recced stuff for myself while all your reccs were for the Letter of Achievement (LoA) and I cannot even reccomend that one. ;_P

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 Colonel Zeth Durron (aka. "Cookiemonster"), original designer of Cyclone and Tempest websites layout, with the subject: "You know something, Colonel? Somebody's gonna get a CoE for such a splendid job on website designing, and you're not gonna be that person. It hurts, I know... ^_^u"

Imperial mini-Logo And here, gentlemen, you have the current status of our 2 ongoing monthly competitions! Now that we're done with March and we managed to feed LCM Polo with his IS-BWs so he doesn't end preying on our own flesh it's time for the rest of you to give our crazy Flight II Leader a run for his money, don't you think? ;-)

Tempest Pilot of the Month - April '09

LCM Dunta Polo - 22 missions (some waiting HS approval) (and Tempest Pilot of the Week on 03/30 - 04/05)
COL Nav'ric Trow - 9 missions
CM John T. Clark - 6 missions
COL Daniel Bonini - 2 missions (some waiting HS approval)
LCM Godo Nurok - 2 missions
LCM Sergeyli - 1 mission
CPT Alphafoxtrot1 - 1 mission

Tempest Student of the Month - April '09

Ok, ok... we're just on day 8th so I cannot expect you to be making your brains to work just yet, but pleeeeease, don't make me to look for that silly Lucas Duck image again to make him my new Flight Leader or something... :-P

Imperial mini-Logo Then again, I'll be waiting for your applications to be Tempest Flight III Leader on days ahead, gentlemen. Please consider this because it's BUT VERY IMPORTANT for Squadron day-to-day operations and the best Squadron in the Fleet will need a worthy FL up there. For the time being, please let me remind you here and now what are the requirements I'd expect to see in a *GOOD* Flight Leader:

  • Mantaining constant contact on a weekly basis with your CMDR (mandatory)
  • Helping your Flight Members as much as necessary and mantain contact with them (mandatory)
  • Sending your CMDR Flight Leader reports each Friday (mandatory)
  • Mantain a decent level of activity (mandatory)
  • Participate at least a little in ALL Squadron-level competitions (mandatory)
  • Participate in Wing-level and Fleet-wide competitions if possible.
  • Being familiar with as much TC material (manuals, links, bylaws) as possible (I could help you with this)
  • Trying to recruit new people into the Squadron as much as possible (not an easy one but as long as you do whatever you can...)
  • Perform as acting-CMDR when the CMDR is on LoA. (not mandatory but definitely good for your performance evaluations)

Imperial mini-Logo "TAC's citation hunt"!! Errr... well, the thing is that this competition ended with no winners for no Squadron in the whole Fleet managed to get those minimum 20 citations, let alone 40 for those IS-SWs... but even then, why not keeping this little section here for you all to be well updated on how many Battle Citations we get as time passes by thanks to our commitment and refusal to do something actually constructive with our lifes like play racquetball. or wash our cars, or cook dinner, or join a funk band, or...

Right now we've a total of 6 new Battle Citations since we started counting here. Not enough! Never enough!! And we keep counting, for whatever competitions may come. ;-)


II.a) Squadron Competitions

L Tempest Pilot of the Month - April '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 - April '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.

II.b) Wing / Ship Competitions

L Wing X Pilot of the Week/Month
Details HERE
As usual, gents! Our almighty WC, Colonel 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. Colonel 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 SP Ace of the TIE Corps, April 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).

L TAC's beta testing madness
Details HERE
Seems the mad Lady TACcy has been arranging a 20-mission monster battle from the deep to punish our fates all this time. XWA-TC: "Battle of Lykos" is its name. To testfly it will be your duty. IS-GW/SW for top bug submitters + IS-BW for whoever comes to be suicidal enough to fly it, let alone IS-GR/SR/BR for best 3 reviews will be your reward. It will be tough. It will steal your time. And as true TC pilots... you gotta love it!!

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!

The Tempest!

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)


Let's get a little gaze on how was when Lt. CoRoneR Zósite K. Styles returned from his last little LoA. Tempest Squadron was engaged on a challenge against Praetorian Elite Squadron and he left Lt. Commander Dunta Polo, Flight Leader of Heralds on Maelstrom, as his acting-CMDR on his departure. After a few days he returned and asked LCM Polo for a little report on Squadron's activity while he was out. Basically he wanted to know about two subjects: first, if Tempest starfighters were still in one piece or Commander Vitaru finally managed to sell them all as cheap metal in order to buy himself *MORE* booze. Second, if LCM Polo followed his guidelines to manage Tempest day-to-day operations as he asked him to do. And since the first question was quickly answered when The Wicked CMDR of Tempest saw that his Flight III Leader had been "performing" under his classic Wing X Cantina table for more than a week, only the second one remains...

<LC Zós> Hey, Dunta. How is it going? ^_^

<LCM Polo> Everything went as you were expecting, Sir. I can fairly say the current Squadron Status couldn't be any better.

<LC Zós> Nice to hear that. But a little more detailing would make me happy if you don't mind. Le'see... what about Dan Bonini? Is he still around?

<LCM Polo> Of course not. He was expelled after I found him playing his accursed guitar inside the "Astra Fighter" cockpit... with his commlink ON, go figure... we're still trying to come up with a detailed list on all 'Chal' officers who decided to pay a visit to the airlock.

<LC Zós> Yeah, could have guessed that one. And what can you tell me about our newest member, Lt. Commander Nurok?

<LCM Polo> Expelled as well. I just couldn't stand seeing him around and not knowing who he is. He claimed to have been no less than your Flight Leader on Cyclone Squadron but that's impossible; you see... he seemed to be sober even!

<LC Zós> That's a no-go, indeed. And your friend Trow? What about the good old Colonel? Is he still trying to steal you those Tempest Pilot of the Week titles?

<LCM Polo> No, Sir. I fixed that easily by expelling him after I noticed he was all an Admiral back in the day. I mean, what the hell is an Admiral doing as a demoted Colonel on an active Squadron while he could be onboard the M/FRG Phoenix drinking at Ronin's health? No doubt that he had something to hide there, and I don't like to have demoted people moving around. Whatever he did before it was not good, I'm pretty sure.

<LC Zós> Splendid. And Commander John T. Clark?

<LCM Polo> I booted him because... because... because he was under my FL command of course. Do I need to provide you further details?

<LC Zós> Of course not. So I take you also got rid of Lt. Colonel Murleen...

<LCM Polo> Oh, come on... he was my CMDR on Omicron not so long ago. Who do you think I expelled FIRST? >:D

<LC Zós> A sad story to tell. But then again, what did you do with Commander Vitaru, our Flight III Leader? I'm sure he was not an easy one. Besides, I saw him laying under his Cantina table not an hour ago.

<LCM Polo> I used some duct tape to attach his expulsion approval up his head so he can clearly read it as soon as he awakes. Reason: for not leaving a miserable half-pint for his aCMDR.

<LC Zós> Wise approach. And what about LCM Sergeyli? Did you kill him as I told you to do?

<LCM Polo> Sorry, Sir. I though it would be better for us to just expel him for keeping developing potentially dangerous blaster weapons using the 'Chal's main reactor core as his personal forge. Besides, if I would have killed him we would be in trouble if he ever decides to resucitate all of a sudden. I mean... he's from that spooky place dessignated 'Mother Russia' on that G0d-forgotten planet far from here... Palpatine knows what his evil arts could be!

<LC Zós> Bah, I don't bow to superstitions... finally, is Captain Alphafoxtrot1 still around?

<LCM Polo> No unless he managed to repair his Missile Boat's flight controls. I used the rest of my duct tape to bind them to the life support system and then I set up new hyper coordinates for he to have some fun trying to find his way back from Yuuzan Vong space. >:)

<LC Zós> Splendid, Lt. Commander Polo! Good work! You didn't disappoint me there and now I'll have the best chance to finish up our competition against Praetorian, as I planned. ^_^

<LCM Polo> Y-your best chance, Sir? What about me? For I pretend to help you there as necessary, you know.

<LC Zós> Yes, I know, I know... I know you're hereby expelled from Tempest Squadron, Lt. Commander.

<LCM Polo> Expelled?!!! But... but... WHY?!! :______D I did exactly what you asked me to do!

<LC Zós> That's the main problem; you left the Riders on the Storm almost empty! Everybody else expelled or lost! How did you dare you brat?! You shall be court-marshalled for destroying what was maybe the best unit in the Fleet all alone. And now begone before I also decide to put you on charge of disobeying a superior officer! >:F

<LCM Polo> ...

As Lt. Commander Polo abandons the office, CMDR Zósite sits in front of the computer terminal and starts writing a report addressed to Colonel Frodo March, CMDR of Praetorian Elite Squadron.

From: Lt. Colonel Zósite Kónstyte Styles, CMDR of Tempest Squadron

To: Colonel Frodo March, CMDR of Praetorian Elite Squadron

CC: General Abel Malik, Praetorian XO

Subject: Tempest Squadron Average on "Fire Demons vs. Storm Riders!" competition.


    Colonel March, please find here Tempest Squadron Averages for our little challenge so you can start making all calcs yourself:

Tempest pilots who participated: 1 - CMDR Zósite K. Styles (100% in XvT mission)

Average: Total sum from the whole Squadron = 100% divided by number of pilots in the Squadron = 1 -->

100 / 1 = 100%

    I'll be expecting Praetorian Average as well so we can put an end to this eclectic competition of ours. Thanks in advance for your attention, Colonel, and thanks for flying as well. ^_^

    Respectfully yours:

--- Zósite K.S. (more Wicked than ever) CMDR of Tempest ---
