I’ve recently noticed a problem on the advanced server and it needs to be addressed.
Let me put it into a hypothetical situation. I push back from EDDL and I’m getting myself ready for a taxi. Another player, let’s say American 1 in this situation. American 1 is a few gates down from me and pushes back as well. Once I do my ailerons and rudders tests and such, I request taxi to the runway and AA1 does the same. I slowly make my way to the first intersection that leads to the main taxiway, parallel to the departure runway, and here comes AA1 speeding by my left side going 35kts, while I’m going a realistic 20kts. I begin to turn towards the intersection of the main taxiway and AA1 cuts in front of me, rather than giving way to me. Once he’s in front of me he slows down and taxis at a realistic speed.
It seems to only be the pilots who have the lower XP value and are new to the advanced server (aka nimrods). I expected advanced to have professional pilots and not people like this. Have you guys ever experienced this recently on live, especially the advanced server?
To all the advanced server pilots, especially nimrods: Do NOT race someone to a ruwnay, it looks unrealistic and you’re likely to rack up a violation for overspeeding. It’s annoying and I’m getting fed up by it happening so often. The point of the advanced server is to be as professional as possible. Which is probably why you decided to leave playground and come to advanced, instead.

Edit: this usually happens when there’s no controller at the airport. It’s like everyone loses their senses!
