    Supertest – FAQ

    Hey. Apologies for not having anyone get back to you earlier, we have been rather busy with the latest round of STA. ST application is still available, and your application will be included in the next batch that are processed. We have just finished with a round of STA, the next round will be advertised SoonTM.

    Supertest Academy, what is this?

    Supertest Academy (STA) is a series of three lectures that covers the fundamentals of what we do in the Supertest program. STA has been in development for some time, and we have ran four rounds of STA so far, with the first one running back in November last year. This is not a new thing, it is just the first time that we have had a public post on the main portal.

    Climate Change Initiatives start to bite.......

    Dell/Alienware do have computers that are compliant, however they have done a typical Dell job of advertising it. Basically they Cloned their newest SKU's, got those certified, and have those listed next to the identical version that they were to lazy to get certified. Jay also goes into detail about how the regulations work in the video, ultimately the media is making a mountain out of a molehill in regards to this. System integrators would have to be trying to produce a PC that is not compliant, especially at the high end.

    I suggest watching the video that JayzTwoCents made on this topic.

  6. The biggest issue is that changing F3 to operate like you suggested, is that it assumes that your it relies on your teammates playing as a team which rarely happens as it is. Skill based MM and +1/-1 MM have being floating around the community for years, and has been consistently being shot down by WG I don't think this is going to change anytime soon. The best I suspect the community can hope for would be better mirroring of ship capabilities between the teams (equal number of radar ships on each team).

    Some new year stuff.

    The Majority of the Aussies are probably still asleep/just starting to wake up. So I will get things started. VAMPIRE II, I for one look forward to playing our new creeping smoke lord and saviour.

    There is also the computers MAC address which is specific to the device used. So those people on a laptop that travel around a lot which would result in a lot of different IP addresses would still have the same MAC address.

    Graphics Card Setttings for Nvidia GTX960

    Ok so your system is meeting the Recommended game specs (your CPU turbo's up to the 3.4GHz that is in the games recommended specs), so you system does not appear to be holding you back. There appears to be a lot of people having this issue at present, present consensus on the EU forum is that there is probably a problem with GUI overlay whilst in Game. Apparently turning off Antialising: FXAA has helped some people.

    Graphics Card Setttings for Nvidia GTX960

    Sounds like something in your system is bottlenecking. Can you please list the computers core component details (model of CPU, ram type and speed, motherboard make and model) Knowing these may help troubleshooting your issue.

    Moskva and Kirov, research them while you can!

    I'm expecting the Soviet line split a bit later on than that, let me go into my reasoning. Generally what I have seen is 2 full patches between new ship line releases, so by following this pattern let's look at the possible updates. 0.9.1 is this week and is the second part of the UK heavy cruiser launch. 0.9.2 should be around the 12th of March will have to see what it is however as April 1st falls in this patch cycle I would expect the event for April fools in this patch. 0.9.3 by my reckoning should be early to mid April, I would expect this to be the pan EU DD early access patch. 0.9.4 should be early May, pan EU DD line full access by my reckoning. 0.9.5 late May/early June, unsure what could be here, would like to see the operation return but I don't think it will happen. 0.9.6 should be late June/early July, this is where I expect the Soviet cruiser line split to occure. So 5 months time is reasonable, it probably won't be 0.9.4 though

    False Advertising: WG's Struggle

    not entirely true, the ACCC have taken Valve and Sony to the federal court over those company's refund policy's, Valve got fined $3M and had to change their refund policy (https://www.accc.gov.au/media-release/valve-to-pay-3-million-in-penalties-for-misrepresenting-gamers-consumer-guarantee-rights) and the Sony case is currently on the books for the federal court (https://www.accc.gov.au/media-release/allegations-sony-breached-consumer-law-for-playstation-games). And while it didn't go to court they also went after ZeniMax (Bethesda's parent company) over their refusal to provide refunds for Fallout 76, resulting in ZeniMax offering refunds for those who bought FO76 between 24/11/2018 and 1/6/2019, and undertaken to amend its customer service documents and scripts to address the ACCC’s concerns about misrepresentation of the consumer guarantee rights (https://www.accc.gov.au/media-release/zenimax-to-refund-consumers-for-the-fallout-76-game). Oh and the ACCC does go after companys for false or misleading claims in advertising (https://www.accc.gov.au/publications/advertising-selling/advertising-and-selling-guide/avoid-misleading-or-deceptive-claims-or-conduct/false-or-misleading-claims), so if Aussies put in complaints over the PR affair I suspect that the ACCC would have a closer look at this affair, especially as WG does have a studio in Sydney.
