BBC Online actually has a link to the game

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-25952939

 

From:

World of Warplanes is a free-to-play dogfighting simulation that delivers adrenaline-pumping massively multiplayer team action in an authentic line up of over 100 different aircraft from the golden era of military aviation.

The BBC maybe got interested to WoWp due to the RAF Museum thing with the Do17.

 

That or Viktor Kislyi bought the BBC with the leftover money they had after buying the whole of Cyprus  :trollface:

Lol!! Since when was this game a simulator!! This is why you should never ever trust what you read or see on news websites or shows. People don't actually do proper research nowadays (Even journalists) and that leads to misconceptions and false information which is spread by sites like these. If I had a dollar for every time I read or heard something conflicting in two different news articles I would be rich!! NZ's news company is the worst as half the world news comes in several days after I have already read it online, and they don't even get anything right. I just heard the radio say the asteroid passing today is the size of Wellington, the second largest city in the country with an area of 444 square kilometres. But space.com says its the size of three football fields!!! :facepalm: I didn't realise football players had to run so much!!

 

I apologise for my derailing rant, I'm in an anti-government mood this morning!!!

The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are: "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" And "Oh S...!"
"Airspeed, altitude and brains. Two are always needed to successfully complete the flight."
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.

Well calling WoWP sim is quite uncorrect. In any case i guess that WG told them to say so but, if that's the case, i wonder why the game is as it is now.

It must be great to work for WG, you get holidays in Cyprus and a free safety deposit box at the bank Kislyi owns!! :trollface:
