The biggest change between the Fall Skirmish and the recent Summer Skirmish is that this event will contain Clubs. In total, there are five Clubs competing:
- Fort Knights
- Lucky Llamas
- Dusty Dogs
- Rift Raiders
- Bush Bandits
Players will be assigned to Clubs for the Duos and Squads segments of the Fall Skirmish tournament. While we do know that the first week will be dedicated to the Hold the Throne game mode, it is unknown what game types are to be expected over the following weeks. The schedule for the six weeks of the Fall Skirmish is as follows:
- Week 1: Duos (Hold the Throne)
- Week 2: Solos
- Week 3: Duos
- Week 4: Squads
- Week 5: Solos
- Week 6: TBA
Points will be awarded to teams based on where they place in the match and the number of eliminations their team managed to get. These points will be called Club Points, and will be added up at the end of the tournament in order to determine the Fall Skirmish champions.
