Battle for the Mines: Skirmish I

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


Now that the first season of Skirmishes is at an end, it's time to clean off the whiteboard and start again. With the inaugural tournament of the New Year, we're keeping the tiers and point cap pretty low in order to open up the battlefields to as many players and teams as possible. Don't worry, we'll be cranking up the tiers and point values in our upcoming Skirmishes throughout the new year.

Skirmishes will occur on a weekly basis and are typically lighthearted and feature everything from tier I tournaments to tank vs tank face-offs. Every week will be a new format!

Skirmish I:
