Summer Scrimmage Phoenix Warlords Rounds PvE The Summer Scrimmage is a yearly 1P PvE event hosted by Phoenix Warlords in which guilds compete to have the highest number of wins against One Player Challenges. The event is split into rounds, each with a set of competitors. These competitors have minimum win numbers based on the users' league.
