Have you actually spent much time flying with the alternate system Custard? I ask only because I saw you come on last night, repeatedly ask the same question and then leave. Rather than remonstrating your great displeasure at every opportunity, perhaps it would be worth your time to set up a server for the 'Experten' players such as yourself or provide critical feedback on how to improve the alternative spotting system. I suspect that you are simply too busy to do either, as we all are.
On my part, I am indifferent to both forms and generally find no particular advantage in either. With the original, I am bounced and do bounce other players regularly. With the alternative and new, I am able to better position myself against other aircraft, and they are able to do the same to me. The extreme-distance spotting could do with being reeled in a little.
