ATC Tower Issue

I was flying from Reykjavik to London Heathrow tonight when I encountered some difficulties with tower on final. To start, I had been cleared to change frequency to tower after I was on the ILS runway 9L.
I switched to tower, and reported that I was on final, runway 9L. I have been doing this ever since I reached expert server, and ATC usually responds with clearance to land.
However, this time I was told to check tutorials on the forum for assistance using ATC. I was a bit confused by this, but continued my approach.
I was waiting for clearance to land or a go around instruction, but I never received any of these messages. Therefore, I continued on my approach waiting for clearance.
However, I received another message saying to wait for clearance to land, and this is when I did not know what to do. I was not assigned a go around or clearance to land, so I was unsure how to go about the situation and continued on final.
I was ghosted shortly after. Can someone please let me know where I went wrong? I was waiting for clearance or a go around but never got signal of it, so I did not know what to do. There were no airplanes on the runway either, and were holding short of 9L.

Thank you!

Hi there, was this Expert server or training? if it was expert you are better to contact the controller. i think it was @CrisYe Controling shoot him a pm :)


First of all, if you don’t have clearance to land, you go around no matter what.

If this was on expert do you know who was controlling he/she may be able to explain more…

PM me please, I was your controller.
