What is Skirmish?
“Skirmish” is a weekly tournament where the game in play is rotated. A quick-fire tournament is hosted with one winner standing who claims the entire prize. Skirmish events are open to players of all skill levels and are for fun, grassroots community play and should not be mistaken for Pro League which is a separate event. The prizes for skirmish are purposely modest, with no buy-ins. Pro Leagues will be for high-level play with larger prize pools.

What is the prize for the winner of Skirmish?
No matter the game, the prize pot for each skirmish is the same – €100. That goes to the winning team or player depending on the game. i.e. League of Legends has 5 players on a winning team, the pool is €100. Hearthstone has 1 player on a winning team, the pool is €100.
Who can compete in Skirmish?
In all games, the majority of players must be resident in Ireland (Republic or North). The remaining players on a team can be resident in any other European country. An exact breakdown follows by game:
- Hearthstone – All players must be resident in Ireland.
- League of Legends – 3/5 players must be resident in Ireland.
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – 3/5 players must be resident in Ireland.
- Overwatch – 4/6 players must be resident in Ireland.
There will be no exceptions made to this rule at any point. A team found to be in breach of this rule will be subject to a competitive ban for a period of no less than 6 months, beginning at the start of the next competitive event.
In standard matches, teams placed on the higher side of the matchup in the Battlefy bracket will play the first game of the match on the Blue side. Teams will alternate sides for each following game in a best of three or five series.
Game of Record
A game of record (“GOR”) refers to a game where all ten players have loaded and which has progressed to a point of meaningful interaction between opposing teams. Once a game attains GOR status, the period ends in which incidental restarts may be permitted and a game will be considered as “official” from that point onward. After the establishment of GOR, game restarts will be allowed only under limited conditions. Examples of conditions which establish GOR:
- Any attack or ability is landed on minions, jungle creeps, structures, or enemy Champions.
- Line-of-sight is established between players on opposing teams.
- Setting foot, establishing vision or targeting skillshot ability in opponent’s jungle by either team, which includes either leaving the river or entering brush connected to enemy jungle.
- Game timer reaches two minutes (00:01:30)
The conditions under which a Game Restart can occur is solely at the discretion of RAID Tournament Admins. RAID Tournament Admins will only allow for a Game Restart in exceptional circumstances.
If a game has not reached GOR when a Game Restart is called, teams must use the same picks as before the restart. If a game has reached GOR when a Game Restart is called, the Pick-Ban Phase will be repeated, with both teams able to make new picks and bans.
RAID may, at any time, make its participants aware that certain champions are disallowed from play. This may be because of bugs, glitches or other factors that may cause the Champion to interrupt the integrity of competitive play.
Champions are ineligible for play until 2 weeks after their release.
Players that do not have access to all champions on their account may use Placeholder Picks in Champion Select. If a player wishes to lock in a champion they do not own, the player may select another champion to represent the champion they wish to lock in. A team using a Placeholder must notify the opposing team captain of the use of a Placeholder, as well as the champion the Placeholder represents, before locking in the Placeholder. Failure to do this will result in a remade Pick-Ban Phase, with the team using the Placeholder losing all three bans.
Teams may pause during the game in the event of a technical difficulty. Teams are allotted a total of 15 minutes pause time. If a team uses up their allotted 15 minutes, they must unpause the game and continue, or forfeit the game. Teams may not pause the game for any other reason.
Double Elimination, best of one.
8 Teams maximum.
No player is permitted to play on any account other than their main account (highest ranked). Anyone found to be trying to circumvent this will be permanently banned from all RAID events with no appeals.
Anyone found to be account sharing (playing on another players account) will be permanently banned from all RAID events and your account will be reported to Riot Games which may see your account also being banned.
Don’t account share.
All teams must have 3/5 of their players resident in Ireland (Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland). The remaining players can play from any other European Union member state.
Skirmish holds no rank requirements. Players of all ranks are welcome to play.
All players must be at least level 30 to play.
