It was a 09:00 UTC start, perfectly suited for its primarily Australasia teams and absolutely terrible for almost everyone else. Thankfully G0hst, LuckyRed and Beerforkids were present to the capture all the action for those of us still sleeping in our beds.
Watch as ten teams of three battle for 30 AUD across an exciting variety of maps, courtesy of Guest1. VODs of the matches are available over on The Lord’s Annual tournament matches page, just look for the YouTube symbol, or visit the videos’ archive.
In our biggest Clan Warslivestream 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.

The next Clan Wars fixture features The Realm, Promethean and Voices of War and is on the 31st January, 1900 UTC. We hope to see you there!
As you may recall we held a 1v1 tournament earlier this month called December Deadlock. Some of the best players of Planetary Annihilation gathered to compete for a £50/$78 prize and we saw some truly epic games. It was a great live experience.
But perhaps you couldn’t make it. If so, fear not, because every VOD has now been uploaded and is available for you over on the matches page. AL in particular won our match of the tournament award and we’d strongly recommend that you check it out.
See the last of the games prior to the latest balance patch, and take the chance to bid goodbye to that era as everyone starts to figure out this new meta.
You may remember that we previously wrote about Uber’s plans for ranked play, but they have now put out a video update to everyone to provide some further context to those plans. We meet Jables for the first time, and Brad uses the opportunity to show off his mighty mutton chops. What a beast.
If you missed the second exciting fixture of Clan Wars season one then fear not, for VODs of the event can now be found over on the Clan Wars matches page.
