Skirmish I: New Beginnings


Looking to win some Gold in the new year? Here’s your chance, as Wargaming’s weekly tournament series continues into 2015 with a 7v7 showdown in tier VII tanks. With map pool play spanning across Live Oaks, Sand River, and the Arctic Region, the action will be intense, and the rewards rich for the tankers that come out on top of the leaderboards.

Registration: Open Now!
Registration Ends: Sunday, January 4

Skirmishes now have three days of group play (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) followed by a playoff (Friday-Sunday). Teams can choose to play only in the weekend playoff or participate in group play for better seeding and greater prizing.

After completing group play, a standings table will sort all teams across all groups based on points earned against points possible. Prizes are awarded at completion of group play to teams finishing in the top half of the standings. These teams qualify for the Alpha Playoff. All remaining teams qualify for the Bravo Playoff.

Alpha Playoff: This playoff consists of the top 50% of group play teams who will play for a larger prize pool. Group play performance will determine playoff seeding.

Bravo Playoff: This playoff consists of all remaining teams and includes teams registering solely for the weekend. These teams will compete for a smaller prize pool and the playoff brackets are not seeded.

Both the Alpha & Bravo Playoffs will use multiple brackets holding a maximum of 16 teams. This means multiple winners are awarded prizing for their standing in their respective bracket.
