Introduction

Pilots are equip-able human soldiers, that can be trained to give particular robot configurations special bonuses that can give players an edge on the battlefield. This feature was introduced in update 5.1.

Pilot Types

There are two types of pilots in the game; Standard and Legendary.

Standard Pilots

Pilots of this type have a blue colored background behind them. All standard pilots start with an initial skill (these give bonuses in battle) when equipped to a robot. This skill is specially tailored to the robot and equipment configuration it is currently using. Every 10th pilot level (after level 1) the pilot gains a new rank, and can learn a new skill, that either gives the robot it is piloting, or any specific equip mounted on it, a bonus. A pilot can learn up to 7 skills and can reach a maximum level of 70, with each individual level up increasing the effectiveness of the skill that is currently being trained (only one skill can be trained at a time).

Notes: Skills can not be duplicated (similar bonus types can be stacked however). Each pilot of this type has their unique story (below their skills).

Legendary Pilots

This type of pilot shares everything a standard pilot is capable of (see above), but with two exceptions; the first being it has a gold colored background, and second (more importantly), the initial skill is for a particular robot, and this special skill is not available for standard pilots. This gives them a unique advantage when piloting the robot they are specialized for.

How to Acquire They are purchased for gold in the Training Center; located in the "offers" screen, under the "Pilots" tab.

Here, once a day (can be sped up with gold) three new pilots are available for recruitment. The higher the pilot's initial level and/or rank, the more gold it costs.

This is also where you can acquire Legendary Pilots, if and when one appears, it will cost 2,500 gold and start at level 1.

Training Center

Note: The more experienced the pilots you own become, the better the recruitment choices are (higher leveled recruits).

Leveling Up

Leveling up can be done in two different ways; by using the robot(s) equipped with a pilot(s) in battle to gain experience (for the pilot[s]), or using the "boost" feature by spending gold to immediately advance the pilot a level. The better the player performs in battle the more experience his/her's pilot(s) will gain The higher the pilots level the more experience it requires to level up, as well as costing more gold to boost a level. You can keep track of your progress by looking at a pilot's experience bar.

Every 10th level after level 1 (11, 21, 31, 41, 51, and 61) the pilot needs to be promoted to a new rank. In order to promote a pilot, 500 gold must be spend (same location as the boost button) for the first rank (at level 11). Each subsequent promotion costs more gold than the previous rank up. Each promotion allows the pilot to learn a new random skill (a maximum of 7) that fits the current robot configuration.

Promotion Costs

Pilot Level Rank Promotion Cost (Au) Skill Total
1 Private - 1
11 Corporal 500 2
21 Sergeant 1,000 3
31 Lieutenant 1,500 4
41 Captain 2,500 5
51 Major 5,000 6
61 Colonel 7,500 7

Replacing Skills

If for any reason the random skill your robot configuration acquires isn't to your liking, you can get it replaced in two different ways; the first and most simple way is to "re-roll" for a new skill. This is done by pressing the "Retrain" button near the skill you want to replace, and then by pressing the "Random Skill" button (for 50 gold) it will randomly select a new skill. The other (more expensive way) is to choose your own skill. This is done by pressing the "Skills List" button on the retraining page. Here, you have a choice between all available robot or weapon skills (all cost 1,000 gold) for the current robot setup your pilot is equipped to.

Note: Whatever level the replaced skill was, the new skill will be of the same level, this means you will not lose any progress towards your skills.
