1: yes - the in game chat window has a small wrench tool symbol which when clicked will open a menu where you can mute certain/all players and change the text colors

2: yes - there is one rating for ladder (1v1) and another one for custom games

3: no - creating a new acc would be considered smurfing and is not allowed (we did allow one user to start fresh with a new user in the past but don't do this without the heads up from the moderation forum group)

How come in some of the mods such as Black Ops I dont have graphics in the unit bar? Do I need to download something? makes it very timeconsuming to find the unit you want as you need to read the info pop-up. If gfx are needed I'd be happy to make them.

For BlackOps the problem is not the unit icons.

At some point it stopped working, but I think only in phantom. A regular game of BlackOps should still have the unit icons. I think this stopped working when some folder structure in FAF was changed. The change was made so that modding would apparently be easier and more clear, but it did cause a lot of things to break and old mods had to be updated in the same fashion. BlackOps has something called a support icon mod, that was integrated with FAF. I think some combination of phantom, blackops and the support icon thing made it all go wrong.

What makes T1 Seraphim arty so much worse than the other races? It's the only T1 arty that seems able to pop my acu from time to time. Are their shells faster or wider blast radius or something?

Compare dps, damage radius and mass cost.

Since FAF gamepatch 3652 (January 2016) you must not use the "Black Ops Icon Support Mod" together with FAF.

FAF can display every unit icon if they are stored in the mod/icons/*.* folder.

[Edit] If you are using the black ops icon support mod, can you upload it as zip for me ?
I want to know why it is not blocked from the faf game via UID check.

This is not the issue. If you play a black ops phantom then the black ops icons won't work. They stopped working ast some point and o think it was when the folder structure of mods was changed in faf. It has nothing to do with the icon support mod, as I don't have that but I still get the missing icons in phantom games with the black ops mod.

@Gruffman can you check if the icons do work when you only have black ops but no other mods?

Much confusion, which of these "is" Black Ops?
