Welcome to the Blitzkrieg CMBO 2007 Mirror Map Tournament Site. This tournament started on 17 Apr 07.
Please feel free to
me if you have any questions.
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT ?
This is a combined league and knockout tournament played over a number of knockout rounds using CMBO. At the start of the tournament players generate an Order Of Battle (OOB) for a unit 1,700 points strong using the Fionn Kelly Short 75 rules. These rules limit armor purchases to medium tanks, and make for very balanced playable games. All battles will be fought on Mirror Maps.
