2018 DOWN IN FLAMES ACE OF ACES
This is a continuous competition played throughout the Expo, starting from Monday Morning (~ 9 AM). From Monday-to-Friday, the daily completion will begin after breakfast (~ 9 AM) to around 8 PM each night. From 8 PM to 1 AM, non-competition missions will be run; this will give players a chance to use previous made pilots and aces to increase their scores.
Players will select which campaign year to begin a pilot's career and for which air force he will fly in: RAF, USAAF, USN, USMC, the Soviet VVS, the Italian Regia Aeronautica, the Japanese Army or German Luftwaffe. We will be using the GMT Down in Flames version in this competition.
