So I briefly played War Thunder before ending-up here and I really mishandled my pilots there. I'd like to avoid doing the same here. I have been flying tier 1 planes exclusively until a couple days ago when this "Chasing the Mosquito" event came out. For whatever reason that interested me so it involved being forced out of tier 1 and getting new planes and crew.
Anyway, for someone with zero knowledge about crew options....what do you guys do? When you get new planes and/or move up in tiers are you moving your old pilots up with you. If yes, then I assume you pay the fee to upgrade the automatically to 90% proficiency. Do you move your crews frequently? If I later move them back to a plane they were 100% proficient in, do they retain that proficiency or do they have to start over at 50 % and be upgraded through some combination of silver, experience, gold every time? What if they move between several planes? Is that even practical? Would they pay a fee (silver) with every move and still have a period of time (when they are earning that last 10% proficiency) when they are not advancing their own unique skills? Does any of this make any sense? Lol, and thanks as always.
