so I’m sitting at PHOG trying to record my flight for my youtube channel and I get this idiot that parks right ontop of me at my gate for a start and couldn’t even move to a different one, regardless I carried on, secondly I get cleared to cross runway 02 and this American 801 obviously doesn’t know how to control a large aircraft when its stationary because he sat up my arse then went straight through me when I finally crossed over runway 02 so I then I thought id watch this guy after I had to respawn, doing over 165kts and still charging down the runway not even taken off or nose up and your in expert server. this sort of stupidness ruins it for everyone when people cant even control an aircraft. go into casual then you can crash this 777 anywhere and try and land at 300kts. expert server should be rated on the persons flying capabilities to how one handles and stresses the aircraft right down to how soft or hard the landing to mount points up to unlock the expert server to garuntee the pilot is worthy of his or her position in the server. because inexperienced people are just flying around for (LONG) hours at a time (AUTOPILOT) and then unlock the servers through there XP needs to be sorted not happy atall tonight.
Step one: Report Button
Step two: Cool your jets.
Step three: Have cold beverage.
Step four: live and let live.
If I was just flying I wouldn’t care but when I’m recording If I’m respecting everyone in there then I expect the same back.
Certain cold beverages assist the other steps significantly :-). Totally understood @Captain_Infinite that’s very unfortunate especially since you were trying to record.
I agree with you. XP has becone irrelevant in terms of someone’s ability to fly realistically.
Unfortunately when people witness low quality behaviour the first suggestion is “raise the XP level!”. Which they did of course, and all it did was delay the problem until the relevant XP was gained by the pilots who are less able…
. XP should be gained by studying the entire flight.
It was really unfortunate because I’m trying record quality and it gets ruined by others it’s a big shame on people that actually abide by the rules.
Exactly already someone is talking sense like me, the computers should evaluate the whole flight including the pilots inputs and then give a grade after the flight is down on the ground and parked.
I find myself frequenting unpopulated regions. Even expert has some trouble makers. I just carry on with my flight as if they’re not there.
You have a report button 🙄
I agree because that pilot flying the 777 probably just earned all his xp by crashing the 777 not realistically I’m sorry about this, because I hate trolls and in the expert server I didn’t know they were there.
I hope you never have to go through that again…
I usually don’t go to overcrowded airports because this sort of stuff happens but I thought hey be good for the traffic in the vid and then long and behold the amateurs come out to play. I mean what happened to keep well spaced from the aircraft in front, I heard the controller tell an aircraft Atleast 4 times lol I said to myself you’ll get ghosted in aminute lol
XP is quite irrelevant at this point, agreed. It’s not the dev’s nor the sim’s fault. There’s a loophole for almost anything. There’s TONS of different suggestions and theories for improving the expert server, a few actually make sense. In the end I trust that the dev’s will take care of everything as they always have. In the meantime I just ignore most of them and continue on with my flight.
I appreciate your kind words and let’s hope none of us experience this type of behaviour. You can tell because he put full throttle crossing the runway then couldn’t stop lol
I do hope it gets solved eventually because getting ghosted 5 times and your booted off xp isn’t going to stop the trolls they’ll just be more sensible in there actions but hopefully in time it will be solved for us all 😌
If I reported him it probably wouldn’t of stopped the person he still got clearance after all his/her antics but hey ho onto the next vid :)
Worst case they’ll just open new accounts I would think. When it really gets to be too much to bear I switch to solo mode.
Solution: Make Expert 100K XP and G4+
Hopefully they don’t base the servers on the XP because realistically it wouldn’t take long for someone that wants to get in on the expert action to go to a region and jump in there aircraft, bang the autopilot on and just cruise around the borders on the region and when global comes I think it will quiet down quite dramatically because they’ll be over the Atlantic 😂
This is already very common, they call it XP grinding. Granted you can’t be promoted by XP alone, they need to perform the proper amount of landings. Again that’s not difficult either but at least it forces them to FLY their aircraft.
Something has to be done to stop the XP based on the servers I.E stay in the air for hours and do nothing then land and open it, a system that monitors the stress and input on the aircraft should be based on the XP then we will see it get more difficult for these things to happen to ecperiened pilots trying to enjoy themselves in there chosen aircraft.
