Recap: Skirmish Season 8, Week 1

24th Nov 2023 Kasharn Rao

The dust has settled from the World Championship, but the action's only just beginning for Skirmish Season 8! Already Chane has bit the dust, slinking off into the Shadows and leaving behind him a very healthy sprawling metagame that will squabble over who gets to be the next Boogeyman of Blitz!

As players sit back, relax, and unwind with some high octane Blitz or easy-going Bright Lights Sealed Deck, those sleek Cold Foil Teklo Cores are starting to find loving new homes!

Let's check out some of the highlights from week 1...

"We had a great time for our Skirmish, getting 10 of our local players together to play great games in the Flesh and Blood. With 10 heroes having representation, there were plenty of different game plans and strategies. Azalea slinging arrows at the competition to take away their turns, Ira and Dash taking their time with heavy defense, to a Data Doll flooding the board with items to steal the win from the jaws of defeat. Top 4 ended with 3 of the of the original classic heroes, Bravo fighting for dominance against Rhinar, and Dorinthea left to stack counters against dragons. The finals was a race to the bottom. Bravo took a risky turn, allowing Dawnblade to stack four counters, just to retaliate with Crippling Crush and Pummel to take it all away. Dorinthea managed to deal the final blow with multiple Courage tokens and an Ironsong Determination, finishing undefeated for our event."

1st: Jarrett Bolwahnn - Dorinthea
