    In week 8 of this series, the lord emperor PAG_Matiz battled with his brother-in-arms PAG_Clopse. We saw a world where air was in greater use than ever before.

    The meta favoured Clopse and it was obvious that Matiz was not well prepared, even losing on Tanis the world he was considered unbeatable on. But showing why he was king he managed to come back from 2-1 down to win 3-2, concluding with a decisive victory in the fifth game and a little of the Matiz sass we know and love.

    In week 9 of this series eXodus eSports will be streaming a best-of-five between King of the Planet PAG_Matiz (@matizpl) and the challenger, PAG_elodea (@elodea), at 17:00 UTC on Sunday, 10th August.

    It's another PAG on PAG, the third best on the ladder has fallen can the number four do any better? He has one of the best tournament win rates of anyone listed on eXodus and has also been a rapidly rising star. It wasn't that long ago he wasn't in the top 10 at all yet it feels unthinkable now that that it could ever be otherwise.

    They met in Cloak and Danger in what was effectively a 1v1 with two spoiler AIs. At first it appeared that Matiz would defeat the aggressive raiding of elodea with his macro war machine, but then the impossible happened: elodea shut him down. Can elodea repeat this in longform? Can he take advantage of the greater control the system editor now provides to create maps Matiz will never anticipate? Can we set enough alarms to make sure he doesn't oversleep and miss the whole thing? Will Matiz prove to be unstoppable?

    Tune in to King of the Planet 9 to find out! And note that we're starting an hour earlier than normal.

    But how do I watch?

    Meh. Matiz is just a filler for the true king. Colin will return one day. And his thrown awaits him.

    "Third best on the ladder"

    Dang it Quitch, why are you still using ELO when the consensus is that uberskill is more accurate?

    You should be announcing that I'm the surprise third player so I can defend my throne.

    And I'd win. That's not a prediction; that's a spoiler.
