SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 28, 2017 – Miniclip and Tencent have announced Ace Pilot League: The British Championship results for War Wings, the hit mobile World War II aerial dogfighting game. The first league season to conclude following the game’s global launch attracted record-breaking participation from players with over 600,000 pilots battling it out in over 23 million matches.
The British Championship tournament, which ran through September 20, had players compete individually or team with friends to battle other real-world players in tier-3 to tier-6 aircraft. The Championship’s most-used warplane was the British Supermarine Spitfire MK.I, which debuted during special in-game events commemorating the Battle of Britain. The iconic Spitfire, known for its sleek lines and distinctive elliptical wing design, was England’s top performing fighter plane during the early part of the war and played a crucial role over the skies of Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain.
The U.S. P-40B Lightning and the Soviet Yak-7b round out the most popular Allied aircraft selected during the the British Championship, with the Messerschmitt Bf-109E4 proving to be the favorite German fighter plane.
