Hello. I am a long time member of Infinite Flight and I have been flying for a very long time and I consider myself to be very experienced. I understand the need to increase the grade requirements due to the new update having new complex features, but there is one requirement that doesn’t seem fair to me. (See grade table attached).
It just doesn’t seem fair to me that the required landings per 90 days would be so high. Unfortunetly, I lead a busy life and 30 landings per 90 days is something that is likely unachievable for me. I’m just curious as to why this one stat has to be so high compared to the other ones. I have been on the expert sever for over 3 years and have never received a report or violation or ghosting. Clearly, I am an experienced player as the grade table lists. But now, simply because there are SIDS/STARS, this number has to be increased, and now I likely won’t be able to reach the expert server ever again???
I just spent two hours reading through the new user to guide to learn how to use the new features, and as I was going to set up my first flight I found this. As a long time paying customer for over 4 years, I am extreamly frustrated with this. The grade table has always been a little bit unbalanced but this is just extreme.
All I’m asking for is a little bit more balance in the grade tables, taking in to consideration how some people lead busy lives and can’t be flying that often, but are still quite experienced. That’s all I ask.
And maybe someone can help me warp my head around this, but I just don’t see how me going to go do 17 touch and goes right now to allow me access to the expert server will make the experience better for other users.
Anyways, if you have read all the way through this, I thank you so much for reading, and please do leave your replies if there is something fundamental I’ve misunderstood.
