Skirmish IV: Encounter in the Woods

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


If you and two of your buddies are itching for a good old fashioned throw down, then this Skirmish should suit you fine. We've trimmed the team size to a three-man platoon, but we've upped the team count to 128 in order to accomodate as many players as possible. Murovanka's magical forest may offer a clever tactician an advantage in this week's match-ups, so beware of the trees!

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!
