    You asked for open events, and we heard you! On Saturday, May 24th 1800 UTC, we’ll be hosting the Community Cup, an event open to those who weren’t given the opportunity to compete in the Supernova Showdown.

    Join us for amazing matches, even more amazing giveaways, and some of the most fun you could possibly ever have on a weekend. We’ll be running two streams with some of the most well known casters in Planetary Annihilation, including ZaphodX, WPMarshall, TheSambasti, and more. Compete for prizes including PA keys for your friends, or watch live as the competitive meta develops on PA’s most recent patch!

    See the official tournament page for rules and stream links, or just check back here on tournament day. Sign-ups will close the day before the event, so don't leave it too long!

    About the PA keys to give away, there'll be keys for the 2 top places, a key for a random entrant (who turns up to play), and keys given away for people watching the livestream too!

    If you know a friend in need, or someone you want to get into PA, there's several ways to get one, even just by turning up ;)

    This tournament is to give those who weren't invited to the Supernova Showdown a chance to show their stuff. Players who qualified for Supernova Showdown through the preliminaries are still able to play in the Community Cup.

    Don't worry, there'll be plenty more chances to compete in the future.

    Nope :) We want this to be an open tournament that specifically excludes the well-known players, to give other players a much better chance to show their stuff. It's kinda like the polar opposite of the Supernova Showdown being an invitational.

    We should hopefully be getting a couple Uber devs in to play also!

    It would be pretty cool if some of the Supernova players offered to help train people for Community Cup.

    What time does it start? I'm thinking about joining if it works with my schedule and I can get some more practice in on this new build before then.

    I'm more of a fan of @cola_colin . There I said it. I like his German efficiency and his stile of play more than @burntcustard (no offense).

    I'm up for grabs if anyone wants to train with me :) I'd enjoy seeing some of my T1 tatics win some games :p

    I also look forward to seeing who else from the community comes out on top of this :)
    though question... since matiz was not in the supernova, is he able to join this thing? xD

    Yes to clarify those people are excluded, not just one of their usernames/accounts.

    Just signed up today. Now I'm wondering if Uber are going to adjust combat fabbers before the 24th - there's good reasons for them to do so, but that would mean a considerable amount of re-training, given how drastically they affect the early-game econ buildup.

    Also hope to see some multi-planet maps!
