Recently we are unable  to dismiss any pilots from the game  .http://forum.worldofwarplanes.com/index.php?/topic/48899-cant-dismiss-crew-in-barracks/page__pid__678445#entry678445

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I am writing this in order to help players as I sough others have the same problem , naimly  I found a way how to dismiss pilots until issue solved by WG programmers.
 

Pilot can be dismissed by this steps:

1. buy  (because its cheap) tier 1 plane
2. retrain pilot you want to dismiss to that  plane for free (50%)
3. sell this tier 1 plane with checked option to dismiss pilot in the same time.


By this pilot is gone together with plane.

 

 

​____________________EDIT I also have identified the reason of this bug . Only pilots that can not be dismissed by this method or in any way  are female pilots from recent event.

 

​The BUG (game conflict)  is brought thus by the recent event of female pilots.


Best regards

Hi _Poe,

 

just to make sure everyone knows the basic facts of this game:

 

A pilot, that has collected some skillpoints,

should NEVER be dismissed.

 

You can retrain him to other aircrafts and have quite an advantage in the random battles compared to a player with the same abilities, but less skilled pilots.

You take advantage of better aiming (and faster killing) or better climb rate or better manoevrability than another pilot with the same aircraft as you, but with a pilot that has collected less skillpoints.

 

I´m playing this game since closed beta, and still don´t have well-trained (skilled) pilots on all of my aircrafts.

The grind through the tiers to get all tier 10 aircraft seems to be quite hard, but it is way easier

than the grind of the skills of pilots to have him on a competitive level.

 

So guys, do yourself a favour: NEVER dismiss a pilot !

Even 1-4 skillspoints are a good start.

I understand your point.  Well I in fact have many premium planes, and Indeed many premium planes. In fact almost all premium planes managed to buy for Germany, USSR, GB and  USA.

Apart from premium planes   I am running/grinding  2 tech tree German Fighters with their pilots, 4 US tech tree fighters with their pilots, 2 USSR tech tree planes and 2 British.


 

That is about 10 pilots and I think 4 machine gunners (one for every nation I mentioned). But I have I think 35 or 40 premium planes ( I love planes collect them its not pay for win).

So In fact I am covering around  50 planes in total with just 10 pilots, using them in Premium planes.


 

Overall thus I dismissed to this day over 2 years probabaly 20 or more pilots that I got in packages with  premium planes, because of having no time or purpose to train them.  My  pilots are now at 6/9 skill.


 

Oh I did forgot Japan, I have also all Japan premium planes, bought last week Ki-33 special offer in prem. shop, and for instance dismissed pilot I got with it because I already have pilot from Nakajima Ki 84  and from Mitsubshi zero A2M from  tech tree and will train them or play for fun in this new Premium plane.

Instead of "dismissing pilots"

you can "send to barracks"

just in case you have one pilot

you don´t want to skill up yet.

 

Wait until "beds in barrack" is on discount ,

buy a few and use them.

Does the same happen when you just try to dismiss a pilot from a plane?

Like throw pilot you want to dismiss into plane, click RMB, dismiss?

Or retrain it to given plane before dismissing?


Clear cache/Skasuj cache: cmd /K del /Q /F /S "%TEMP%\wargaming.net\wowp\cache"

 

And everything else/i wszystko inne: cmd /K del /Q /F /S "%APPDATA%\Wargaming.net\World of Warplanes"

​yes game  freezes when you try to dismiss (right click) pilot right from plane or from barracks.

 

It  somehow goes trough only if you buy some plane and train pilot for that plane than sell that plane with check in option  for dismiss the pilot together with that plane.(OP). If using tier I plane for this manouver its almost free.

 

It is a bug from 1.9.9. I got reply from WG custommer service they gona solve this, I presume in patch 2.0.

Just reporting (edited Op to) that I identiffied the reason of this  pilot dismiss bug.

 

Every pilot  can be deleted by the method I posted in original post, except one I have---- a Female pilot brought from recent  game event.

 

So here it is all on the table. Source of the BUG identified, conflict came with recent event with Female pilots.

 

........they say female brings bad luck onboard the ship, or was it the planes?.:D

Seems that this bug is to be squashed by the incoming patch.
