Skirmish XXXIV: Introducing New Format for Tournament

Throughout the years, the Skirmish has seen a dramatic overhaul, and this August, we’re celebrating the evolution of Wargaming’s most popular weekly tournament series by taking old school and showcasing past incarnations throughout the entire month, ending with the next generation of Skirmish warfare!

This week, we finally unveil the future of Skirmish play, as Skirmish XXXIV gives tankers their first taste of what to expect in the coming weeks of tournament battles. New Skirmish rules include four days of unseeded group stage followed by a 16-team, single elimination playoff bracket over the weekend. On top of that, Gold will now be awarded based on Group Stage rank earned each day, with the Top 10% of teams winning 500 per day in addition to the bigger rewards, including an 8,000 grand prize!

We kickoff the new format with a 6v6, tier V Murovanka Encounter. Does your crew have what it takes to win your way through the brackets and bring home the Gold?

Sign up today and put your skills to the test.
