Skirmish XII: Testing Your Metal

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


We're pleased to announce our 12th Skirmish for this season. This week we're using a pretty standard seven-man tournament format, but there's an emphasis on the heavy vehicles. We expect to see a few TDs and Mediums in the mix, and maybe even a few lights and SPGs, but expect to see some real heavy metal out there on Mines!

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!
