Skirmish XXVII

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


We're pleased to announce our 27th Skirmish tournament!

For this week's skirmish we're emphasizing platoon sized teams.  Each team will be composed of three members (the maximum platoon size ) making the map feel dauntingly enormous.  We hope this promotes creative attack and scouting strategies; we're certain our top teams will deliver on this charge.

Skirmishes will occur on a weekly basis and be a bit more lighthearted than a standard tournament lineup. Including everything from tier 1 tournaments to tank vs tank face offs, the format will be different every week!
