Annoying atc people

It has become a thing where the atcs just send a message to me to taxi to a specific runway and i just spawned at the gate without requesting anything and Its getting annoying. Note that this was on the atc playground server, yes i know i could have been on the advanced server but there isnt as many atcs as on the playground. Has this also happened to you?

Should not be happening on advanced. Which server were you on? If it was playground, listen, it’s where everyone practise 😂

A lot. I am in the middle of briefing myself about takeoff weight and all that and they say taxi to runway let’s say 27 and I haven’t even requested for pushback or in fact taxi

This have also happened to me

Only thing to do is reply “stand by” or just confirm and finish your checklist/pre taxi routine.

Has anyone else had atc approve pushback when you asked for taxi to runway? By the way pushback was not necessary.

As a controller I get stuff like that all the time. People say “Ready to Taxi” at the gate…

Yeah that ATCs that jump online 3sec before touchdown or takeoff and demand contact.

Getting a “exit runway when able” message while I’m still on final of flaring is even more annoying and disturbing.

I think that Ground frequencies aren’t the busiest, the are only a few commands, so bored controllers start to ask for intentions to planes standing at their parking spots.

I agree with you, but I guess that atc controller was try to avoid traffic jam if there is much traffic like in KLAX. I am usually ATC as well,so sometimes I do instruct them to go vacant runway, but if they still request another runway I should be send taxi to that runway except something ongoing that distract their way.

Yeaa, I agree with you some atc controllers are do it every seconds I wanna report them as a report user.

The exit runway command is given by the tower and not the ground. Tower is watching the map most of the time and thinks the aircraft is already landed.
