Air Force ACE is a Korean StarCraft professional team composed of members of the South Korean Air Force. Its current roster contains 11 players.

Overview[edit]

The Air Force team was founded in late 2006 when they announced that enlisted former pro-gamers Clon, ChRh, and H.O.T-Forever would be allowed to participate in the winter preliminaries. In South Korea, military service is mandatory for males (for 2 years at the time, though it has been reduced since then to 18 months), and the team thus attracted pro gamers who wanted to practice and compete during service. In April 2007, these 3 players, as well as Boxer, Mumyung, Sunny, fOru, and Rage, formed the core of the official team under the name Air-Force Challenges E-Sports (ACE). Air Force ACE first participated in proleague during the Shinhan Bank 2007 season.

Facts[edit]

  • Although statistically the weakest team in ProLeague, AirForce ACE has the highest StarLeague achievements (MSL/OSL 1st/2nd/3rd place) per person due to the small roster size and number of “old school” players.
  • Entered into the Guinness Book of Records Gamer’s Edition as the first military pro-gaming team.
  • ACE has came in last place in every season of Proleague since the team was founded except for the SPL 2008 season, where they came out slightly ahead of eSTRO.
