I am currently only a few hours in, and so far I have yet to see a reason to switch between pilots, instead of just waiting until the next day for them to calm down. Do different pilots operate different units better, or maybe unlock certain abilities after experiencing enough combat encounters? As of right now, they feel like more of a tacted on difficultly mechanic, then individuals you’d care about living and dieing in fight. I see no reason to try and save a pilot with an eject, when the pilot seemingly makes no difference, meanwhile the mech makes ALL the difference.
Do I just need to get deeper into the game? Or is managing your pilots purely to add difficulty?
