I’ve read about 1/3 of all the posts. 300+ is a lot.
As an expert controller and pilot, I’ve seen an increasing amount of pilots who see the expert server as a way to get away from other pilots who fly the same way they do, but have a few less XP points. The expert server is not meant to be a haven from chaos. It is meant to be a place where realism can be pursued to the fullest extent possible.
These changes are very much needed. Violations can happen to everyone, and it is great to see that pilots must have experience to counteract their mistakes.
As for the ghosting, nobody gets ghosted by accident. Any controller will give you several chances to do the right thing, and point you exactly in the right direction. No ghost should be a surprise to the pilot. If it is, the expert server likely isn’t for you.
