  There are very few ways to get anything beyond the first 3 pilot skill points (which will set you back about 50k experience or one mid tier stock grind) except for playing the game.
Sure spending 1 Free Experience point to gain 5 experience points for your pilot is is useful but that can get costly.

An 8 point pilot is nothing to sneeze at.
That is something like 1.1 million experience points.
Not counting the points you use to research planes and their modules in the mean time.


Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

If you like the Horten then you've had plenty of time since last year to grind a pilot.


Are you sure you know what you're talking about??? It hasn't even been out half a year. :popcorn:


WyleE seems to get the point though. Thumbs up.

Except for valid points, any post should also meet the forum rules, regarding used vocabulary at least.


As for pilots in any bundles, they always come as a bonus = won't appear on your account if you buy a bundle with the plane you already own. There are some technical limitations. Still, if you'd like to get that bundle you can sell your Horten in the game, receive extra credits and then buy a bundle — you'll get the Horten together with a pilot and other things listed in the bonus section. Please mind that Specialization progress will disappear if you do so. If you have already specialized your Horten, Specialist configuration will stay even after selling and re-purchasing it. 


I more than once have passed up on purchasing bundles that contained interesting items as bonus due to this. I received the Horten during the last event (wonderful plane by the way) and would have liked to buy this bundle and receive the gold value as well as an 8 point pilot. IIRC this is how things worked in WoT and WoWS. Just a humble suggestion but I wonder if this technical limitation is worth fixing, as the are likely others like myself who would spend more money at the shop if those bonus items were available to us.
