Hello all,
Been away for a while. Attempting to assign pilots to groups and so far it only gives me the option to retire the pilot.
I know I used to do this all the time. Has the process changed in the betas?

Before you can post selected pilots to groups you need vacancies, so send the pilots you do NOT want to the General Reserve (just called the "Reserve" on the air group pilot screen).
Once you have vacancies, choose "Select veteran" to pick the pilots you want.
That's about the extent of my experience with the subject. I think there is a way to mass select experienced pilots but I am not familiar with it.

Easy peasy. BBfanboy got it started. "Select Veteran". Make sure your "Reserve" pool is selected (instead of the TRACOM or Replacement) will bring you to your pool of reserve pilots that are relevant. For the Japanese, it's IJAAF and IJNAF. Two totally different populations of pilots depending on the group trying to draw replacements.

Once your reserve population is selected (there should be a lot of dudes in there), the default 'sorting' is by experience level. If you want to sort based upon skills for fighter pilots, for example, you'd click on the header for "Air" and the pilots are sorted based on highest air skill rating. You can identify the individual pilot by clicking on their name and they'll be added (per the far right hand column) to the air group you are trying to get them into. There will be a delay of 1-7 days ascribed their arrival in the unit.

For mass recruitment, see the buttons at the bottom that allow you to get either 5 or 10 at a whack based upon the highest (or lowest) rated skills selected. Give it a try. Pretty straightforward.

Grand Campaign

When you're ready for the Grand Campaign then the very place to start is Sardaukar's excellent tutorial guide or see his newer guide

Early war Allies strategy

Allied fuel & supply logistics

Kull has also produced spreadsheets showing good initial orders (vs AI) for first turn of the campaign for Allies and Japan


-

* I cannot amend the original post of course - but I would add the following AAR for new and newish players.

Schlussel covers some of the same ground as Sardaukar's excellent tutorial.

However his also has a nicely detailed focus on logistics and supply through 1942 / 43 for the Allied Player.

"Supply Supply Supply - Search Search Search - Recon Recon Recon" may be the mantra but its very informative.
