    Official tournament page

    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! Ensure you don't miss out by subscribing to one (or more!) of our channels.

    Nah, Brad uses "awesome" to buff dox 30 times over, sweeping over Matiz easily.

    Cue Brad using the 1337 dev hacks to spawn a bomb bot army and winning 3-0.

    With the new balance Doxen are raiders not full on combat units. I feel as though Brad will need to change up his game a bit from what we've seen in the past.

    Isn't that right Quitch?

    I think you're right. Brad's "freak show" is usually a big pile of bots going straight in the front door.

    But if Brad becomes our king...

    Brad would be your king, and brad is the king of the bots, ergo you would be bots.

    Brad has been using swarms of infernos and grenadiers in his recent games. All game footage in the video (except one shot) comes from his games. This is before the combat balance patch of course.

    It'll be interesting to see how he handles 1v1, since he's a FFA player.

    This is also the first KotP to allow for multi-planet systems. No more than two planets, one multi-planet system per-player per-event. We're going to see how it goes.
