It seems if you know how, you can over-ride the 'Mission Settings' that are set by the Server.

i.e. where you select icons / Improved Gunnery / Simplified Physics / No Wind / Invulnerability etc. etc...

 

Recently a pilot 'Drone1' has been able to fly an Alby DVa faster than SE5's and Spads.

Allegedly throwing a forward hand signal to initiate an unrealistic increase in speed.

 

Fact is, that in the computer age you can't trust anything anymore.

 

Heh!  Yep.  People are clever.  I'm not surprised.  Thanks for the clarification; I understand it now.

To clarify - you can overwrite client-side settings set by server. You can't tell server to, say, turn off wind or change the physics or gunnery  model. But you can fool your client into displaying icons even if server tells it to turn icons off.

What Drone1 is doing, I have no idea :).
