Our mission is not to ghost you when we are controlling on the advanced server. In fact, it is to let you have the greatest and best time playing. That’s why I am making this post.
Please, and I say please, familiarise yourself with ATC commands and terminology before playing with us, it is a crucial step not to be ghosted. A simple thing as requesting taxi before pushback can annoy us sometimes, even though it is at some airports possible, have you ever seen a flight taxiing straight from a stand/gate? I don’t think so. Does it make sense pushbacking all the way to the runway? Apparently it does for some guys.
Also, please follow heading and altitude commands when you are tuned into approach. Even though you are still not being vectored the ATC might be saving all the passengers aboard, avoiding a collision by vectoring you away from an aircraft on collision route with another one.
Last, don’t request for flight following with a jet, it does not make sense. There are a ton of threads explaining why, so please don’t bother annoying us with this. We know what we do, every time you request something, you blink orange on our map, it does not stop until we respond, so please avoid sending duplicate messages.
The list goes on and on and on, and remember that we as controllers are also humans, we might forget that we told you to do something and send you something else to do and we might send you a wrong message because of our fingers having to be so fast when there is a lot of traffic.
