I know a lot of people have asked about this - but there has got to be some way to curb the crazy on the playground server - especially now that a lot of us level 3 guys who flew on the advanced server now have to use the playground.
The other day I was flying and countless planes completely ignored the ATC instructions - did whatever they wanted. I watched three planes take off from the grass while I waited for ATC to clear me - it is out of control.
Then today I was ATC at KNUC and finally just quit - I think only 5 planes out of the twenty or so that went through the airport listened to any ATC instructions. Had a couple of grass take offs - one pilot who was listening had to go around because five planes waiting in line got impatient and took off all at once. I’m also noticing more and more players not switching frequencies when asked. I had a couple who were landing at my airport. Asked them multiple times to contact the tower and they ignored it and landed without ever changing frequencies.
I understand that this is a game - but it is getting to the point that it is no longer enjoyable and I am considering not renewing my live subscription next month.
There has to be someway to punish pilots who seriously do not listen at all and do what they want. I reported a couple of pilots when I was flying but when I looked at their records I saw that this one pilot had about 200 flights and 600 violations! I mean can’t we say that if your violations exceed the number of flights you’ve done you are kicked off of the playground server and banished to the casual server.
Or can we at least put in a report function for all ATC controllers - not a ghosting function - but the same reporting function all pilots are given - that way we can at least flag the trouble makers and let the mods deal with them.
Sorry but I am really annoyed right now - and it is sad that Infinite Flight is going down hill with crappy players.
