Skirmish is a game play which is only available when you are searching for match in Play vs. AI, Quick Play and Competitive Play. It can be considered like a waiting lobby.

Details Edit

  • There will be two teams, and anyone can join or quit suddenly. A team can have no member.
  • Any map can be used for Skirmish.
  • There will be no objective, and therefore no winning/losing and reward. There will be no penalty for quitting, by any means.
