well that's pretty dumb.  in the past when the Valkyries were sold you got a normal pilot with 7 skill points if you already had the girl.  also you could pick which girl to buy if you only wanted one or buy all three as a bundle.  As far as the two guys go, what's the point?  They are exclusive to their planes so selling them without their planes is useless.  Add the spit 1a and the bf109e3 to the bundle and give a normal 7 point pilot as compensation.

wait, what?   the male pilots are linked to a particular plane, and neither plane is available in the premium shop?

Kind of pointless if you already have the pilots, isn't it?

 

Who thought (giggle) this scheme up?

The 109 E-3 and Spit Ia were previously available. I got the 109 on in an 'Aviation Day Axis bundle' and the Spit for a bonus code.

You may use the Dunkirk pilots on any of your planes of the corresponding nation, though one of their skills won't work as they are tied to particular aircraft. 

 

It is an offer for players who don't have these pilots but want them to their Barracks mainly.

the skill that goes away is the skill that makes the pilot special and makes that Spit fly better.  So if you do not have the plane the pilot is no different than a regulare pilot in any plane other than the spit.

 

add to that that there isn't any compensation for those pilots you already have the bundle is worthless to most game players who have been playing for two years or more.

who would want a pilot just to sit around there barracks?  The answer is nobody.  people want to use the stuff they pay for.

its actually far worse than a regular pilot because of the exponential increase in xp required for pilot skills.  to research the next usable skill point will now take millions of xp.  you essentially have a 2 point pilot that takes millions of xp to research the 3rd.  It also prevents you from mastering the skill that would ordinarily take that space.

I'm relatively new to the game and I'm thinking exactly what you guys are discussing. I'm interested in the offer but I don't have the two premium planes. So.. nope.

I have the guys. I dont have any of the girls.

Aside from the front loaded xp cost of they are pretty useful for forcing you to fly in a manner that is best suited to their machines.
(do you want to learn how2 high altitude intercept, B&Z ,T&B or even pound the ground with authority ?  this is how you do it).

 
And honestly this is a perfectly good excuse for me to get the tech tree planes for the girls..
So i am interested.

Also 16 supply crates.

If I buy the girls, (yeah that sounds not good) I guess I will have to have gender equality and diversity training for the rest of my pilots.   Its the 21st century by the way...not to mention separate barracks accommodations for the gals  well for...reasons..this could be anequal opportunity nightmare!

Actually, the girls you can slip into any like type plane and use their special skills.  The German does any heavy, the Russian GAA and the American multiroles.  Plus they are good to gaze upon.

Are there unique skills for the other two pilots?

If you mean the two male pilots, yes.  But ONLY in their specific currently non-available premium plane.  The Bf 109e3 and the Spitfire 1a.
