Wrong runways at egll

I just took off from egll on ts and the 27 runways are in read but in use.
Anyone got an explanation?

Red runway does not mean a closed runway.

People like to take off from the closest/popular runways, and don’t pay attention to the weather.

Even on expert, ATC will use red runways if traffic is too heavy to switch. It’s not just a Training Server thing.

Should have known… Saw an example of this at Tampa

It happens. Red doesn’t mean the runway is closed. It is a shame people ignore the weather but I like to think it is all a learning process!
