So when approach ATC is online, they like to give us vectors but sometimes if the airport is not busy and we have STARs in the flight plan ATC can just let us use those. To request no vectors, I just request descent via this STAR and ATC gives me vectors. I request descent via the STAR again and he tells me to check tutorials on how to use ATC instructions.
So the main problem is that ATC forces us to use vectors (which they are allowed to do) but I am just making a general complaint of how approach ATC just frequently complicates things when unnecessary in literally empty airspace when I would prefer to easily do my approach on the STAR which would be more realistic than using ATC’s unrealistic altitudes and vectors which delay my flight and expert server is supposed to be about realism
This is a very general problem which happens very often so do not comment “PM your controller”. Also don’t say that in busy airspace you may not be able to use the STAR because this still happens in airspace that is literally empty like 1 plane in the sky. Are ATC supposed to be trained not to do this? Do you guys also experience this problem frequently on the expert server
And also some advice to ATC, when I switch to tower frequency if you repeat the previous person’s instruction to “check tutorials” it will not increase the probability of me doing so
