Battle for the Airfield: Skirmish II

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


Continuing with our effort to welcome new players into our tournaments, we're keeping the tier limits rather low this week; however, we've upped the team cap to 10 players. It's going to take a good deal of coordination to field an effective team. All you new battle callers are going to have your hands full when trying to juggle 10 friendly and 10 enemy tanks, but we're sure you're up to the task!

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