    1. StrayaGaming

      As of Sunday (7/7/19) at roughly 6PM, StrayaGaming will be launching an ARMA 3 KOTH server. At this stage our plan for the KOTH server is to run it as an infantry only server, meaning that only unarmed helicopters (no jets) and unarmed MRAPS (max) will be available as well as a limited selection of launchers. The server will use the Sa-Matra mission file, and the anticheat handling will be done in accordance with their guidelines. We will be looking for feedback regarding the weapons and vehicles restrictions as outlined above. Should you wish to have your say in the direction of the server you can post your suggestions in the new suggestions sub-forum for KOTH. Staff applications for the server will open shortly to all members of the community for anyone who wishes to help moderate the server. For our initial staff intake you will not be required to have helpdesk experience but it does always help your application stand out amongst the rest. Current staff are welcome to apply to join the KOTH team. We will have a series of giveaways and events running over the course of the next few weeks in order to promote the server and get players engaged. The first will be on the night of the launch for the player who is atop the leaderboard as 9pm AEST, with information about further giveaways to come.

    3. StrayaGaming Staff Application Changes Hey everyone, Hoping to make the process as smooth as possible, there has been an update to the way staff applications will be managed here on our forums. Gone are the days of manually copying a template over into a new post, as our new system will make use of a format similar to that of our current support system. Now you'll simply be able to fill in a simple easy to use form to put your application in! To the many applicants waiting on the status of your submissions, we highly recommend re-applying through the new system as applications will not be carried over. Additionally, you may notice various tweaks to the content of our applications, which should assist management in keeping the staff team great . For those interested in applying for the Community Team, the previously three applications have been merged into one, with those interested in branching off into either graphics or video production now required to submit any accompanying media directly to a Community Team Leader. For those re-applying, plenty of the questions on the application should feel familiar, and as always, if anyone does have any questions or issues regarding either the new application process or the applications themselves, please feel free to contact a staff member. You can find the new application forms here Or by clicking on the above link in the top menu Below is a diagram of Application System page;
    4. StrayaGaming Altis Life - Shaping the Path Forward Hi all, As you are undoubtedly aware, our Altis Life server has just undergone a full economy wipe. With the wipe, a variety of changes were applied to help balance all factions, and to reduce the daily occurring chaos in Kavala (Sydney). You can read more about the wipe in the changelog here. Altis Life is perhaps the most successful StrayaGaming server, and as such we owe it to the players to ensure that their voices are heard on the direction we take the server moving into the future. We acknowledge in the past that people have felt like they were unable to have a direct say in the direction of the server, so through this new initiative we hope we can correct this and allow everyone to feel like their voices are heard and they're able to contribute in a positive way. The Polls To ensure that the changes being made and features being added align with player interests, a series of polls every fortnight will be held on the forums to determine what features are being added, removed or changed. The poll content will be determined by the staff team, based on commonly received feedback and suggested changes covering all areas of AL gameplay. How can I get involved? Getting involved is quite simple, all you need to do is make your voice heard! Talk to those whom you play with, and share your thoughts on the forums, discord or with a staff member. If a staff member hears a good idea they will propose it for addition to the poll. What will be in the polls? At the end of every fortnight in the lead up to the each poll staff will culminate the best ideas they've heard over the previous 2 weeks for use on that fortnight's poll. The questions on each poll could be on everything from the location of a bank, to what guns are included at the gun store! They will be entirely based off of the suggestions put forward by the players. Do I have to vote, and are they anonymous? You are not required to vote, however if you wish to have your say counted in the direction of the server we suggest you do! All polls are anonymous, so feel free to vote honestly. Are previous forum suggestions being taken into account? Yes. Any good suggestions we have already noticed from the past will be taken into account. If you're unsure if your previous suggestion was taken into account and feel it is still necessary then feel free to make the suggestion again on the forums or talk to a staff member. How long will this be running? In the beginning we will be trialing this idea to gauge how it works and the contribution it makes to the server. If all goes well we hope to continue with the polls indefinitely. I have more questions. Who can I talk to? Altis Life Staff would be more than happy to answer your questions.

      StrayaGaming - Wasteland Rules General Expectations General guidelines for playing on our WL server You are expected to treat all members on the server with respect. Please be honest when it comes to completing missions. If you did not help don't pouch yourself a share in the reward. It always pays to have some form of video recording software running while playing on the server. If an incident happens, and you need to report it to staff, video-evidence will give you the strongest ground. Represent your classes. If you're a medic, your job is to revive and treat other friendlies, as an engineer you repair friendly vehicles etc. If you encounter any issues ingame, or catch someone breaking the rules, come directly onto our teamspeak (ts.straya.life) and ask for a moderator / admin/manager’s assistance. Do not take matters into your own hands. Server Rules In order to assure a fair and enjoyable experience for everyone in our Wasteland community, these are the rules that must be followed at all times. Trolling On StrayaGaming's Wasteland server, trolling is heavily frowned upon. Trolling includes, but is not limited to: Shooting around / at allies (see: Teamkilling), destroying friendly vehicles (see: Team Asset Destruction), failing to exit a vehicle after being instructed to by the owner, stealing gear/money after they died while you were in close proximity, etc. As trolling is a broad spectrum of different acts, punishments may vary. Admin Decisions Complaining in chat or speaking rudely to an admin on Teamspeak will only make your situation worse. If you think a staff member's actions are unjust, please send a message to the current wasteland manager &/or the Staff Manager. Or file a staff report on the forums. These messages are kept strictly confidential. An admin's decision is final, if you believe the decision was in error put in a ban appeal. Spamming Spamming chat after being asked to stop by others/a staff member may result in a kick or your access to public chat channels being rescinded The Don't be a dick rule Being a dick includes, voice changers, childish, grieving, are all considered being a dick. (can also be counted as breaking any of these listed rules) Offensive Language StrayaGaming is a community with a variety of all genders, races and ages, please respect that. Repetitive directed abuse towards other players is entirely unacceptable behaviour, and may result in disciplinary action. This includes any community guideline breaches Hacking, Cheating and Exploiting Hacking the server in any way will result in a permanent ban. Glitching/Exploiting will suffer long term bans at staff discretion depending on severity. Meta gaming Metagaming is the act of using outside or previously gained knowledge within the server for personal gain or advantage. (Simply put, under no circumstances do you relay any information to any members of an opposing team.) Being abusive/Racist Being abusive to other players is not on, by definition it's the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. Keep any thoughts which may be deemed offensive to other players to yourself! Teamkilling Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES do you ever teamkill, If you are caught intentionally team killing another player it will result in disciplinary action. If you believe someone has broken the rules do not team kill them come and get staff to deal with them, taking it into your own hands may get you punished as well Red triangles symbolize friendly mines. If you deliberately / accidentally step on a friendly mine, you are the one at fault. (If you witness someone placing mines around friendlies, in order to cause friendly injuries, screenshot and show a staff member). Team Damaging / Stealing Damaging friendly assets and / or stealing from your teammates is not allowed, if you are caught damaging or stealing friendly vehicles you will receive disciplinary action. Body Looting Once you have died, and your items are on the ground, it is officially free for anyone to take. It is however considered polite to allow friendlies to retrieve their gear should they ask. However, if you were already in close proximity to a fallen ally and couldn't help them in time, you are not to touch their gear. Doing so will result in disciplinary action. Waiting for a friendly to die in order to collect their loot is a punishable offense. Indie group hunt Independents that use the group system to locate people then kill them will result in disciplinary action. Using objects to block missions Do not under any circumstance place objects on top or around a mission to stop it functioning. Do not fully obstruct roadways used by missions, always have gaps in any barriers/walls for mission vehicles to pass through Abusing Staff If you have been banned/kicked etc, please do not abuse our staff members for doing so. Jump into our TeamSpeak and sit in our Wasteland issues channel and one of our staff will come and resolve your issue. Sky Bases Sky Bases are, hence the name, bases built up in the sky, out of reach and/or view of other players. Skybases are permitted if and only if they are connected all the way to the ground with base parts or are below 150m above terrain level. Money Missions If multiple parties finish an AI mission, you are required to share the money with everyone involved. If the money is not shared and both parties cannot come to an agreement, the money will be removed by an admin.
