    It has been a time for team games with Clopseys and Clan Wars dominating the competitive landscape for the past few months. Now it's time for the return of the king.

    In King of the Planet 10 the heretical PAG_elodea fought the noble foerest for control of the crown. The challenger employed a bold strategy designed to highlight the weakness of procedural maps, but in the end it was his own weaknesses that were exposed and he was run out of the kingdom and never seen again after a sound 3-0 thrashing.

    In King of the Planet 11 eXodus eSports will be streaming a best-of-five between King of the Planet PAG_elodea, and the challenger (P)BattleBear, at 1500 UTC on Saturday, 7th February.

    Elodea has proven to be almost unstoppable, currently holding the #1 slot on both unofficial ladders, while also holding the #2 slot on the Uber ladder. He has continued to define the meta for most players with his bold orbital strategies, informative articles, and cat fact streams.

    Working quietly in the background, (P)BattleBear has been preparing for this challenge. Not seeking fame and glory, he has been consistently playing in the background and holds ranks #2, #3 and #7 across the ladders. While the king has shown his hand, the challenger is keeping his tricks to himself.

    It's a new day, a new balance, a new meta. With the current PTE expected to release ahead of this event it's all to play for. Will PAG_elodea's rapid adaption and bold strategies triumph? Can (P)BattleBear make use of the increasingly powerful System Editor to throw something completely unexpected at the king? Will someone choose a system with more than one planet?

    Tune in to King of the Planet 11 to find out!

    How can I watch?

    We will be streaming the event live on the day on the frontpage of exodusesports.com.

    Cats hate the water because their fur does not insulate well when it’s wet. The Turkish Van, however, is one cat that likes swimming. Bred in central Asia, its coat has a unique texture that makes it water resistant.

    As a side note, are quitch and uber purposefully colluding to release totally new balance builds just before kotp every single time? :p

    I think this happened (or likely to happen) 3 times in a row already...

    Can you make sure you do another DIY build with the new balance so that I can be sure what to do? :)

    Great trailer as well, shows off how great PA looks when you're not just staring at icons.

    We have experimented in the past with bringing on a guest to analyze the games after a few have been played. Having two analysts that are both experienced and well prepared allows this to be a more formalized addition.

    So hoping the new balance changes mean a return of competitive T2 and vanguard drops!
