New user / first post here, so I hope I don’t break any rules. I recently purchased a subscription for Live and have mainly been doing ATC, preferably Approach. But honestly, I get really frustrated with the pilots on the Training Server. I’d say that 80% of these pilots don’t follow instructions or keep doing frustrating things (like, I am vectoring them for 5 minutes all the way to a nice intercept angle, and then they switch to the tower frequency without prior notice before I give them the clearance for the approach and to contact tower). After this frustrating experience I thought I’d go do some ATC on the expert server, until I noticed that a high level of XP is required (and a test, as I’ve read in other posts).
I understand this requirement and I am OK working my way up to the required XP level.
What I don’t understand: Why don’t I collect XP towards my Expert server qualification while doing ATC on the Training server? I am a real world pilot, so I have very little interest in flying as a pilot in IF – instead I enjoy being “on the other side” in my free time… but it seems there’s no way around collecting these 40’000 XP as a pilot if you want to work ATC with pilots who appreciate my effort (I am not even on 10k by now).
