Wing X Wing Commander report #4 (03/06/2009)
This report was submitted by WC/COL Domi/Wing X/ISDII Challenge


Greetings members of Wing X and fellow TC Flags; welcome to the weekly Wing X report. My apologies for the lateness of this report; it should have been sent out on Tuesday but I got sidetracked by work and am only just getting back to it now.

Wing News
Another good week of flying activity in Wing X with many missions flown and many medals being handed out – mostly by and too Tempest Squadron members. Tornado, are you going to let Tempest dominate the activity board forever? I know your CMDR, Major Palermo would like it very much if some of you started getting active and taking part in some things.

I would like to commend both of my CMDR for submitting their MSE reports so punctually, I am quite pleased with the work both of you have been doing, CMDRS; even if the results aren’t quite there yet for Tornado. In fact Tempest has so thoroughly dominated so far, I am wondering why Tornado pilots are allowed in the Cantina. Maybe I shall declare it off-limits to all Tornado personnel pending some activity that would make a trip to the Cantina necessary. I will discuss this with the security staff at our next meeting. :P

There are several competitions going on at this time – including the newly launched Challenge Top Gun. You’ve seen it listed in earlier reports, well bow it’s actually live. The monthly Top Gun will be determined by flight activity alone; whereas the Wing X Pilot of the Week is based on all-round activity. This will include MP activity once that gets sorted out and I start getting timely results on MP matches – timely meaning the week they took place and not a few weeks or months later.

Tempest Squadron pilots also have a pair of running competitions – Tempest Pilot of the Month and Tempest Scholar of the Month. See your CMDR’s recent report fpr more details on those or scroll down to the competition center to see if I remembered to include them.

I was/am working on a competition with the SOO and TAC that may be a Spring version of Raise the Flag to determine a TC Flagsjip and VIP squadron in the wake of the restructure. We were working diligently on this a while back but recent events such as the restructure and the TAC’s outstandingly brilliant work on the TC database have kept it from being finalized. I am hoping to get back on this within the next couple of days (hear that SOO and TAC? Prepare for emails from me. I know you’re reading this. You can’t hide from me. :P)

And yes... it's obvious that nowadays there're not too many Courses to pick but I hope this will get fixed soon. On the other hand, in case of a tie, test scores will be used looking for an average in order to award the medal & title. Already passed Courses count as long as the former score is surpassed.

TAC's beta testing madness
Starts: 14/02/2009
Ends: 31/04/2009
Details: Since I got TAC, there's been a 20 mission battle from the deep awaiting testing. It's time to get that over and done with. So anyone who wants to, can go and download the battle and test fly it. And that's where the competition begins. The top 2 bug submitters win medals, and everyone who completes the battle wins an IS-BW. Pilot files, bug list and review must be reported to the TAC via email to qualify for the medals, and must be in by March 31st. This is an XWA battle. Additionally, there's an IS-GR,SR,BR available for the best three reviews. Download the battle here:

The one who flies the mission the fastest, will win the IS-SW. Everyone who flies faster than the TAC will win an IS-BW. TAC time to be announced when the run is over (TAC pilot file available on request if you wanna make sure I'm not cheating)
Medals: IS-SW/IS-BW
