In addition to the main tournament, week two of the Fall Skirmish will also feature Trials during the week, open to all members of each Club. This week’s Trial is called ‘Spin and Win,’ which will feature a variety of in-game challenges.
A wheel full of exciting and varied challenges awaits. At scheduled times, the wheel will be spun and Clubs will be issued a challenge to complete based on where it lands. Each challenge presents a new opportunity to win Club points and prizes.
With week one officially in the books, Epic have updated the Clubs standings based on their total points earned from both the competitive tournament and the mid-week Trials.
