Tournament

Uber announce Cloak and Danger tournament

Uber Entertainment, with support from eXodus eSports, will be putting on Planetary Annihilation’s second official tournament.

Uber’s Community Manager, Brad Nicholson made the announcement.

Sixteen of the most dangerous Planetary Annihilation players are about to square off in a legendary tournament full of suspicion, intrigue, and treachery.

Uber Entertainment is proud to announce Cloak and Danger, the second official Planetary Annihilation tournament. Taking place every Friday in July starting this July 11, Cloak and Danger is a series of free-for-alls where alliances can be formed — and broken — at any point during a match. Only one out of the tournament’s 16 players will walk out the winner. How many people will they have crossed to get to the top?

The tournament will be broadcasted on Uber Entertainment’s Twitch.TV channel and dual-casted by community members from Exodus E-Sports. The first day’s games on July 11 begin at 11AM PST. Be there!

A couple of notes:

Invites have been sent out to folks, but we’re still finalizing the roster.
Time of day is subject to change; getting people around the world together is hard

Keep up with the latest details over on our Cloak and Danger tournament page.

King of the Planet #8 announced!

In week 7 of this series his highness PAG_Matiz fought Uber’s bradnicholson. Orbital was the theme, and the king was clearly confused on multiple occasions to the delight of all.

The event will be hard to top, culminating in PAG_Matiz dropping a planet on himself by mistake, followed by the Steam daily deal on Planetary Annihilation being so successful we couldn’t continue the event. The king ended up triumphing 2-0. Or 2.5-0.5 as Brad likes to say.

In week 8 of this series eXodus eSports will be streaming a best-of-five between King of the Planet PAG_Matiz and the challenger, PAG_Clopse, at 18:00 UTC on Sunday, 6th July.

Confidence abounds, with both sure that they can destroy the other. With the biome rules introduced in King of the Planet 7 they can each only pick a moon once, so they finally both need to discover that the game has other biomes. Will Matiz’s experience in King of the Planet biome variety tell? Will Clopse use Matiz’s poor knowledge of orbital against him? Will America celebrating the victory of the French over the British mean they battle alone?

Tune in to King of the Planet #8 to find out!

Steam Daily Deal defeats King of the Planet 7

It was the first multi-planet King of the Planet. It was the first King of the Planet to have three casters. I think everyone could agree it was probably the most amusing King of the Planet yet. King PAG_Matiz and Uber’s Community Manager bradnicholson, the self-declared best player the game has ever seen, squared off for the crown, but neither could defeat the might of the Steam daily deal which brought the event to a premature close when Ubernet could no longer cope with the demand and failed to spawn additional lobbies.

PAG_Matiz managed to hold onto his crown in a 2-0 victory, with the third game resulting in our first ever draw as the king teleported his commander onto the planet which he was smashing a moon into. A fabulous way to bring the event to a close.

We were very happy with the way multi-planetary systems panned out and the confusion it brought for at least one of our players. It hasn’t been a big element of 1v1 play, but hopefully that will begin to change. Expect to see it return.

Another challenger is already lined up, so expect an announcement soon and join us for more exciting King of the Planet!

King of the Planet #7 – Uber’s Brad Nicholson challenges for the crown

In week six of this series our lord and master, king PAG_Matiz fought [BL] Murcanic. Surprises abound, including the first comm boxing map seen, but showing why he wears the crown PAG_Matiz was able to keep his throne with a close fought 3-2 victory.

In week 7 of this series eXodus eSports will be streaming a best-of-five between King of the Planet PAG_Matiz and the challenger, Uber’s Brad Nicholson, at 18:00 UTC on Sunday, 22nd June.

Brad had this to say, “WELCOME TO BRAD NICHOLSON’S FREAK SHOW MATIZ. I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO PLAY THIS GAME.” A true people’s poet.

This will be the first King of the Planet to allow for multi-planet systems. Will we see a YOLO?

Will Brad do Uber proud, or will Matiz sleepwalk his way to a 3-0 victory? It’s a new patch, a new balance and a new meta. Will it be nothing but tank spam? Will air be as OP as some claim? Make sure to tune in to exodusesports.com at the appointed hour to find out!

King of the Planet Series – 1st June 1800 UTC

It was epic and it was grueling, but in week 5 of this series our protector king PAG_Matiz defeated the upstart [RLM] burntcustard 3-2, the first time this event has gone to game 5!

In week 6 of this series, ZaphodX and thesambasti will be streaming a best-of-five between King of the Planet PAG_Matiz and the challenger [BL] Murcanic at 18:00 UTC on Sunday, 1st June.

PAG_Matiz is definitely the favourite for this, but the two have never previously met in battle so perhaps [BL] Murcanic will be able to bamboozle our king. PAG_Matiz demonstrated the effectiveness of Grenadiers and Infernos, but the patch was fresh; will we see something better from either player this time? What weird and wonderful planets will we see the players trip one another up with? Will PAG_Matiz finally choose something that isn’t a moon?
