Skirmish XI: Five by Five

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


We're pleased to announce our eleventh Skirmish tournament for this year. We're keeping it light this week, real light. Five lights in fact. With the kind of speed light tanks are known for, and given the narrow confines of the streets of Himmelsdorf, expect to see some destruction derby style antics. Bring your best drivers for your chance to win gold and bragging rights in this week's Skirmish!

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!
