Skirmish VIII: Boom & Zoom

Boom and Zoom is generally a fighter tactic, not something tanks do, right?




Tanks can't move fast enough for anything resembling a boom 'n' zoom. Unless, of course, you're in a Bat Chat or T-50-2. In that case you are playing the tank very, very wrong and will die a horrible and embarrassing death.

It wasn't taken out of the game completely. They merely disabled it for the Random Battles map lineup. You can still choose to play on it in Training battles and several Clan Wars provinces use it.

Was low signups for this skirmish. I don't see people being critical of the format so was just the result of some having too many tournaments going on right now while others did not have the proper tanks?

We had a first, two weeks ago, when a team went undefeated during the entire Skirmish. Add Shot Blockers Inc. to that elite list  :Smile_great:

Skirmish 8 was also a first in that we had it shoutcasted live! Thankfully, our friend Clutch has uploaded the video for all. It's an entertaining final to watch  :Smile_blinky:

Thanks Sarge! To bad skirmishes don't get a bonus like challenges do.  If it happens so rarely, maybe it should have one too? :P
