- Each Match lasts 10 minutes
- During a match, a team scores points for each enemy ship it kills, equal to the tournament points value of that ship. The team that has scored the most points at the conclusion of the match, or that destroys the entire opposing team, is the winner. See below for points value for each ship type.
Ships will be whelped, victories will be had, and the new explosions will be lighting up the sky!
Will Jay manage to keep his ships alive? How will Boat cope without a bomber fleet? Will Mittens pop in to spin each fight?
All these questions, and more will be answered over the weekend!
Many of the pilots involved are also participating in the Keepstar fight, so, come and watch a full speed fight whilst waiting for bombs to land in the tidi fest over in M-O.
