Rebels Season 3 Trailer!

Garonin adminofficerraidleader posted Jul 18, 16
Hey all,
Just watched the Rebels Season 3 trailer and while I've been back and forth over the series during its first two seasons I'm enormously excited for this season.
Here's a link so you can give it a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmXp802sFgQ
Now I'll go ahead and warn you of some 'spoilers'  ahead for the trailer...
Okay hopefully that's far enough not to give things away but there are a couple of highlights here for me that made my nostalgia and Star Wars love jump off the meter.
  • Groups of Mandalorian Commandoes Fighting for the Empire. This means the warrior culture Mandos with jet packs is firmly back in canon and this of course makes me ecstatic!
  • Wedge. It isn't explicit but that pilot defecting from the Empire that identifies himself as "Wedge" is in fact the Wedge Antilles much younger than we see him in the films. All I could find was speculation but if true this makes me very happy to see more chgaracters from the films included and expanded.  
  • Grand Moff Tarkin. The name says it all but here again we get more of another classic character from the films and some exploration of his backstory.
  • Finally and I deliberately saved this for last. Grand Admiral Thrawn! I've never been a fan of his on the same level as some but I'm very happy that they are bringing back some of the better parts of the EU and bringing them into canon.  We'll have to see how much of his backstory from the EU they keep (IMO hopefully very little if any) but the fact he's here makes him fair game again for other canon material going forward and I know some of you will be cheering his return.
All in all, I'm now fairly excited to watch this season of the show and imagine I will only get more so as the time gap between it and the film timeline narrows. 
Thought I'd share with everyone.  I'd love to hear what you guys think about all this too.

News

..::Bow::..

Dark greetings!

The evaluations have been processed and all awards handed out. Congratulations to all recipients. The june is coming to the end soon so I'll have the pleasure to evaluate again and hand out a lot of Crescents for the monthly competitions.

Star Conflict:

The Game modes had some mayor changes:

Team battle:
- Maximum time extended to 8 minutes
- Kill counter now depends on the number of players in the game, including those who've joined after the battle's start. So it can be that it increases during a match.

Domination:
- Maximum time extended to 10 minutes
- Control score counter increased to 999

Combat Recon:
- Maximum time extended to 8 minutes

Beacon Hunt:
- Maximum time extended to 10 minutes
- Score counter increased to 200
- Switch time for beacons reduced by 10 seconds

Detonation:
Maximum time extended to 9 minutes
Also changed settings for adding players to ongoing battles
Window for adding players to ongoing battles increased to 3 minutes
Captain can now respawn in Combat Recon within 3 minutes

Player squads:
Maximum squad size increased to4 ships in PvP mode

Battle Front 3:
Battle Front got also some changes.The changes to battlefront have doubled the points requirement for a BF win from 200 to 400. This means many PC matches are now likely to go the full 10 mins.

Star Trek online:
nothing to report

Misc:
As I mentioned some reports ago the DB support a lot of games, but we was not able to track all of them or reward playing activity. I'vea solution of this. Install the Raptr gaming community program. It tracks automatic all your play time of your games. Every week you recieve an email with a summary of your played time per week. Forward this email to me and your BTL. Every full hour grants you 4 activity points. If you don't hit a full hour or full 15 minutes for 1 point I'll round up in most cases. I use the activity points for the evaluation. So game time increases your chance for awards and maybe elevations. Two guys allready using this. I'm looking forward to recieve more of it.

If there are any gaming news which may be interesting for everybody of us, feel free to share the news in our newsgroup. We need to clean it from dust.

I'm sill looking for a Hyperion BTL, which goes to round 11 now. So I remain as interim BTL.
Position requirements:
- must be an active Star Trek online player
- must assume the "Pimp the Fleet" competition (BTL will recieve an excel sheet from me for that)
- writing reports and monthly evaluations
- BTL / Squadron CMDR experience or at least one leadership course taken

Thats all this time, lets look at our current status and the awards.

Clan / DB wide Competitions

Pimp the Fleet V4.0: (Star Trek online / DB wide, hosted by CON/DA Pellaeon)

Every month I count the contributions of the Members to the Fleet. This will be sorted in a rankinglist for every of the 5 sections. Additional to that there will be an overall rankinglist. One high active Member in all 5 sections is able to grab up to 6 awards! Additional to that we have the small ancillary effect that our Fleet increases in level and functionality. With permission of our MAA, I'll participate from now on in the competition too. So everybody has now an additional hard opponent.

Defenders of Aurora Prime - 2016: (entire DB including Dark Counsil / hosted by CON/DA Pellaeon)

After our multiplayer activities noticeable increased over the last weeks, I think it is time to start a competition for it again. Every end of the month all awarded Clusters of Fire will sum-up. The crucifal factor will be the tracking spreadsheet of the MAA, CON and PCON of Clan Drakonan. All Dark Brotherhood multiplayer approved games for earning Clusters of Fire will count for this competition.
Screenshots for CoF approval have to be send to the MAA of the DB and the CON and the PCON of Clan Drakonan.
