Should I Trust ATC!

I didn’t heard any communication with this A380 call sign, i was alert on atc messages

How close you were to the runway when you decided to go around? Judging from what I see in the photo you attached, I would have done a Go-Around.

ATC on the Training Server is just as accessible as you taking a B777 for a spin. Users can come and go as they will, and control and operate as they will, hence the name, “Training Sever.”

This server is unlike the Expert Server which we at IFATC provide quality and professional operations and staffing at the designated airport for said day of the week. You should always trust the given controller on the Expert Server. Failure to do so will result in reports - just throwing it out there plain and simple. Always assume good intentions with controllers on the Expert Server, since we have gone through extensive training to get to that point.

On the other hand, the Training Server is an environment that is not closely monitored and can be chaotic. I strongly advise caution when using coms on TS. Besides that, TS is a great place to have fun and build up your skills here on the community. :)

Have you ever heard of a troller? They usually dont follow instructions and do as they please. You encountered one, this wasnt the ATC fault and yet you are blaming it on them. There is nothing controllers can do about that, they try their best to maintain the trolling but sometimes it cant be stopped. Also you dont need ATC to tell you to go around, you can do it yourself to avoid this.

It depends, some people are actually pretty good at doing ATC, I for one love doing it and I take it seriously. But there are some people who have absolutely no clue what they are doing and/or just don’t care. So ATC is very hit or miss when it comes to the Training Server.

I wish the controllers on the T/S could issue lvl 2/3 violations

Let’s not… That system will definitely be abused to its limits …

Yes, I like that

ooh, I hate that idea! The only way this idea could possibly endorsed is if ATC on the TS was under the same qualification requirements as the ES.

Like @Jw2004 said, under the current set-up of anyone able to be a controller in the TS, issuing violations would be abused up the wazoo!

I don’t know about that, maybe do smtn simular to the expert server w/ IFATC, but lower those requirements for the T/S???

I would be very cautious about that. The reason that ATC requirements are so high for IFATC is for two reasons.

1.) to maintain quality and professionalism of the Expert Server

2.) To also discourage spammers/trollers from attempting to gain IFATC status. When you lower the requirements, trollers could see that as an opportunity to gain IFATC status and then screw with everyone.

Actually it was pitch dark i didn’t see him yet, this i screenshot i took by keeping the time to noon, so we can that A380. I could have seen him if he had turned on his strobe landing lights
