Clan Wars

Clan Wars Season One ends on a high

This news post will contain spoilers as to the winner of Clan Wars season one, so if you haven’t caught up with all the latest matches then switch across to the videos section now.

The first season of Clan Wars has come to an end with some fantastic matches as Team Burning took on Voices of War and PA Gods faced off against Promethean. PA Gods vs. Promethean [Home] was awarded Showcase Match status, joining only the only two other games to be given this eXodus award: Team Burning [Home] vs. The Realm and PA Gods [Home] vs. Voices of War.

Planetary Annihilation The RealmCongratulations go to The Realm who not only fielded the largest roster, but also walked away with the honour of being league champions defeating favourites PA Gods. The Realm came better prepared with rumours of arduous drills, practices and selection games run by [RLM]burntcustard. But it was a clan victory, and many Realm names were seen, some old and some new, all contributing towards first place. The final standings can be seen on the Clan Wars tournament page with almost every position up for grabs in the final games.

A hearty well done to everyone who took part and helped make Clan Wars such a successful event. Conceived as an idea in August 2014 and launched that same month, we never anticipated it would be as successful as it was, generating a lot of discussion across forums, leading a far more clan activity and resulting in the largest player sign up of any Planetary Annihilation tournament to-date.

There have been ups and downs and not everyone made it to the finish line, but we feel the end result made it all worthwhile. So thanks to both players and viewers for helping to make Clan Wars season one great. We don’t have information about season two at this time, but stay tuned. Until then check out our next tournament, Evil Twins, which is still open for sign-ups, as well as DarkSteel’s Orbital Warfare Mayhem mod tournament.

Another epic Clan Wars fixture

In our biggest Clan Wars livestream yet three clans faced off in six matches, each of them a four versus four. They did battle on systems featuring one planet, they did battle on systems featuring several. Some games were over in less than fifteen minutes, others lasted over an hour. We saw everything from bot rushes to nuclear strikes to planet smashes. Clans did battle the ground, in the air and even in space. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend and to the clans for some fantastic matches and spectacular moments.

But perhaps you missed it? Well don’t worry because we’ve got videos of every game for you to view.

Thanks also to both ZaphodX and WPMarshall who did us proud, maintaining a high level of professionalism and at no point wandering off in rambling diatribes about supermarkets and jokes you’d need to be British to understand.

Epic action kickstarts Clan Wars season 1

Clan Wars The Realm vs. PA Gods background

Yesterday the oldest and largest of the Planetary Annihilation clans, The Realm, faced off against a clan which only recruits from the top ten – PA Gods. It was always destined to be an epic confrontation, but proved to be one which pushed the game to its very limits. A clash of philosophies ensued, with PA Gods plotting four 1v1s on homogeneous moons, while The Realm had a far more diverse home system and a plan which relied on strong teamwork and outthinking their opponents.

PA Gods went in the favourites but it was The Realm who emerged victorious, grabbing four of the six possible points and taking an early lead in the league.

For those of you who weren’t able to join us to watch it live, the VODs are already being added to the Clan Wars match pages.

But we’re not stopping there, we have a long season ahead of us and plenty more games to come. On the 27th September Team Burning will face Promethean, and on the 11th October it is the turn of newcomers The Cult to tackle Voices of War. Keep checking back for more information and we hope to have you with us, watching the games and interviews as they happen.

Clan Wars opening game announced, but sign ups still open!

Clan Wars, the 4v4 clan league run by eXodus eSports, will be kicking off with one hell of an opening game: The Realm vs. PA Gods.

Watch as the largest and oldest of the Planetary Annihilation clans faces off against a clan which consists of six of the top ten ladder players. Will The Realm’s deep bench and experience in team games triumph, or will PA Gods raw talent prove too much? Does having the system designer from PACE help The Realm design a home system too tricky for their opponents, or will PA Gods prove to be as capable off moons as on them?

Be sure to tune in on the 13th September at 1800 UTC to find out!

If you want to take part then you still have time! Sign ups for season one will remain open until the 8th September. Clans both new and old are welcome to partake.
