@Maxmustang it might also have to do with high resolution scenery… potentially? Much of Africa, South America, Oceania, and internal Asia don’t get many visits, why? Well they have class B’s and mountainous regions, and seemingly everything all other regions have but not high resolution scenery which could be the cause.
You’re definitely right, there’s for sure a follow the leader, and it makes sense: where there’s ATC, there’s usually gonna be more traffic. For me, I usually like flying for whatever I’m in the mood for, currently doing LIS-CDG, while everyone else is soaking up sun in the Bahamas on Expert. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great they mix around destinations for ATC control on expert though.
Just my 2¢
