I'd fine tune that a bit. While they're certainly setup for fun, skirmishes can be quite serious...essentially "mini" battles. Complete with tactics/coordination and teamwork. No hard and fast rules or organization though...very much like video games where there's a 20-30min battle...then a bit of a break...then another 20-30 battle.
How "serious"/"organized" a game is, be it a skirmish or milsim, is entirely up to the host and the players attending.
