Skirmish XXII: Rising to the Occasion

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


This time around we've pulled the Skirmish rules from our Design Your Own Tournament contest.  Farva1 took the top spot in our creative contest.  Congratulations!

We're pleased to announce our 22nd Skirmish tournament!

Skirmishes will occur on a weekly basis and be a bit more light-hearted than our current tournament lineup. Including everything from tier 1 tournaments to tank vs tank faceoffs, the format will be different every week! Be sure to read it carefully every week for changes.
