YAY! For once, ALL the pilots are for planes I own, and 2 of 3 of those planes are already keepers anyways!

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

How are the new crates acquired. Are they won or just for purchase.

Huh three special pilots (presumably) for tier 6. just a month after 2 other pilots. 
What an interesting way to shake up the mid tier meta.  

First we got special female pilots with  a couple of unique skill  options that they can use (with various degrees of efficiency) in ANY plane of their nation with a positive result..
To make the decision making a bit easier for players upon release; each pilot starts with a 100% efficiency in their "preferred" aircraft. Either tier 5 or 6. But seriously they can fit anywhere.

Then the Dunkerque pilots arrived with masteries that; for the most part, make them one trick ponies that only excel with one particular tier 5 premium plane.
Spoiler
 

3 years later, WeeGee is continuing that one trick pony theme. But now in tier 6 with these two pilots from last month. 
Spoiler
 

And now the new pilots are going to be here this weekend.   
A special American Bomber pilot is (honestly) completely unexpected.
Spoiler

I imagine that it would either be just a bit faster or give light fighters a new definition pain and suffering with a resilience skill that increases turret rate of fire or cooldowns. But it would be weird to have a Pilot skill that affects gunner behavior.  Or maybe it uses something like FInal dash but with more focus on enhanced durability and escape speeds. Extra boost performance perhpas?

But maybe we get something really weird. Like a skill that replaces demo expert. 
Spoiler


The British are getting a new pilot. How broken will Elliot Millie be in a Tornado? Guess i better grind the line to find out.
That's right. i didnt play that line until the release of the high tier hawkers back in the 2017(?) winter event. skipped everything and started with the Typhoon. 
So I really have no idea what will make them special. Maybe better burst length for those cannons ... ?
 
Albrecht Schneider seems ... I dunno. "surplus to requirements" is what comes to mind.
Spoiler
But i am curious in what WeeGee decides is the best way jazz up the Me 410.
 




Far more detailed info about the earlier pilots in the spoiler below for those that forgot / weren't around. 
Its a bit long and not at all necessary to read if you're already familiar with the special pilots.. Its more just a convenient grouping of the info i used to justify my speculations. On the off chance someone disagrees with me enough to want to fact check me and or call me out on my nonsense.  
 
Spoiler
  

Edited by wylleEcoyote, 03 March 2021 - 01:51 PM.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...
