No apology from FPI but at least we had a response.
Their statement is:
the EU.voice.fpi-net.net is an alias for both the eu-1 and eu-2 (same goes for the US,us-1 and us-2)
Untill we get the packaged Voiceclient from Stefan that supports the Alias-feature (It's written, works, just needs to be put into an installer) please use the "-1" or "-2"
Almost clear as mud but I think I see the problem. eu.voice.fpi-net.net is a NETWORK address that should be picking up data from two servers - eu-1.voice.fpi-net.net and eu-2.voice.fpi-net.net. It isn't quite doing this and if you select eu.voice.fpi-net.net it seems to shunt you randomly to one of the two servers. For some reason most ATC got shunted to eu-1.voice.fpi-net.net and most pilots seem to have gone to eu-2.voice.fpi-net.net.
I'd suggest everyone changes to use eu-1.voice.fpi-net.net and ignore the -2 channel. I'm not sure if you can do this in your ATOC setup (I can in the ATC software) or whether it will need an INI tweak.
