Skirmish XIII: Destruction Most Ruinous


It’s time to dust off your tier IX for next week’s Skirmish! Take the battle to Ruinberg - Encounter for a chance to win Gold!

Skirmishes now have three days of group play (Monday through Wednesday) followed by a playoff (Friday through 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 who also 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 the remaining teams and includes those teams registered solely for the weekend. These teams will compete for a smaller prize pool and the playoff brackets are not seeded.

Both the Alpha and Bravo Playoffs will use multiple brackets holding a maximum of 16 teams. As such, multiple winners are awarded prizes for their standing in their respective bracket.

Teams and players may only register once for the skirmish.

Registration Begins: Open Now!

Registration Ends: Sunday, April 6
