I gotta say, I like these last few skirmishes 10x more than the challenges. Although I think tier 7 TD's and Mediums could be allowed here without changing the spirit of the skirmish.

Every team is going to be the same. I agree with royal. Give us a bit more flexibility.

limit of 7 means the same thing as up to tier 7.

Skirmishes have been literally at the same time for around 30 iterations now. If it's too late at night this may not be the tournament for you.

Please allow mediums and/or TDs to be used in this, then at least we might see some different setups, as it is right now with the current map we will see very limited tactical options & diversity.

both teams hull-down in an attempt to secure victory through attrition
Can you say, 'T29'?

Also, thanks for making the skirmish teams larger.  10 man teams allows much greater flexibility and inclusion.

It was the fact you are crying about something very unlikely or plausible to change. The Skirmishes are set at a specific time for a reason.

you mine as well of said T29's only. I will be very surprised to see a team using something else than a T29. Good luck T29 players, let the games begin!

I hear you guys, regarding the lacking strategy of Skirmish 3. My apologies. I'll be sure to build on this using Skirmish 3 as a precedent.

In regards to changing the rules, unless absolutely necessary, we find it's best to keep the rules "as is" once posted. This maintains a level, competitive playground as it's often the case that a rule change doesn't reach all teams in time. Thanks all for understanding.

On a side note, Heavy Destruction Weekend is a great way to warm-up your Tier 7 heavies  :Smile_blinky:

This makes absolutely no sense to me. About a year ago when challenges first started signup's started Monday, like always. Registration ended the following Friday, again like now. The difference being previously we played what the players in those events wanted to play. Between Monday the tournament was announced and Friday the rules were all changed accordingly to the feedback given.

Now you say "we find it's best to keep the rules "as is" once posted". OK well I don't know what the rules are until you post them. So how could any player feedback possibly have any effect other than on future events?
