    The most overtly pay-to-win tournament in Planetary Annihilation’s history is back for its fifth incarnation!
    [​IMG]



    We return once more to bring you the biggest, most unpredictable and most expensive event in our community calendar. With the support of the Planetary Annihilation community, we hope once again to be able to treat you to a showcase of this uniquely cataclysmic Real-Time-Strategy game.

    Sixteen players will battle in a series of free-for-all games for a chance to be crowned King of Chaos. The players will need to use all the wit, skill and diplomacy they have available to them as they try to claw victory from this frantic scrum. However, there is a twist:

    YOU control the carnage!

    You, the spectators, have the ability to donate units to the player of your choice, LIVE, as you watch the battle unfold. Give an underdog a second chance, drop a TITAN in the middle of a rampaging horde, or just throw down a load of nuclear missiles to watch the explosions.

    Why?

    This tournament is in support of the AbleGamers Charity, a fantastic organization which makes gaming and computing more accessible to those with disabilities. Every cent donated goes directly to the charity via the donation page. This annual tournament has raised over $6,400 so far, with last year raising over $2,200. As ever, we’re hoping to beat last year’s total!

    How?

    Before the tournament goes live, a ‘menu’ will be published, showing how many dollars you must donate in exchange for each available unit in the game. Along with your donation, you must include instructions detailing which player you wish to donate to, which units you wish to donate and where you want them to be placed. Once the donation and instructions have been received, our resident Puppetmaster will ensure they are added to the game.
    Craft your donation HERE!

    For those unable to make it live to the event, units can be donated in advance and will be added at the first available opportunity.

    When?

    For the first time in this tournament's history, we will be hosting a QUALIFIER event to give you the opportunity to partake in this incredible skirmish!
    The qualifying event will take place on 17th November 18:00 UTC, with the main event taking place on 24th November 18:00 UTC.
    Set reminders on your phone, calendar, PDA or whatever you use to organize your life to make sure you don’t miss it! We hope to see you over at WPMarshall's Twitch page for the livestream of the event. We may even have a special guest in store for the main event's livestream!

    How will the qualifier work? Will it be a streamed, pay-to-win kind of affair?

    The qualifier will be a simple standard tournament. Hopefully FFA format. Only the main event is pay-to-win.

    Thanks for all the players of the qualifier and the viewers too! I hope you all enjoyed it.
    I have now published the player list for the main event, above.
    This includes old community members, some may have been tournament organisers, modders, streamers, map makers and so on. It's not all about who is currently at the top of the rank tables or playing most often with regards to the invite list.
    I hope you enjoyed the stream and as always, if you have feedback, please do get in touch.
    If Jerle and SpacePi have a 1v1, send me the replay, I'll postcast it.

    Thank you.

    We had the 1v1, but like I said, I was bound to lose.

    All for naught, Thanksgiving weekend means I'm too busy. You'll once again have to take up the mantle. Maybe it was good I nuked myself
