    In Week 3 of this series Matiz defended his title against Gandalf with a 3-0 victory!

    We took a break last week for the Supernova Showdown, but Matiz is back this week to face an old rival. Our glorious king originally earned his title by defeating Godde 3-0 in a controversial game that included a number of issues with spawns. This Sunday, we're giving Godde another chance to prove himself!

    In week 4 of this series, ZaphodX will be streaming a best-of-five between King of the Planet Matiz and the challenger Godde at 17:00 UTC on Sunday, 4th May.

    Will Godde be able to finally give us a new king and make PA history, or will we see a repeat of the last time these two legendary players faced each other? There's even still a chance that the new balance will be pushed to the stable branch today and both players will be forced to learn the game all over again while we watch!

    This, and all future King of the Planet games, will be streaming on the King of the Planet channel, so make sure to follow us to get notified of when the action starts. Or if you prefer, get your notification via Twitter.

    Recordings of games will be uploaded both to ZaphodX's channel as well as the King of the Planet YouTube account, where we will be collecting all of the action.

    To make sure you don't miss any future King of the Planet games, follow us on Facebook, Google+ or the PA Tournaments Steam group where we'll post details on any scheduled events.

    This week's game will use the same rules as last time. Quitch has taken a lot of time working out a clear and fair format for the series, so feel free to take a look.

    Want to challenge the king? Drop me and @Quitch a PM and we'll do the rest. Games are generally each Sunday, 1700 UTC.

    Sorry for the late notice, everyone. Some of the details of this week's event took a lot longer than expected to work out.

    It's all good and looking forward to see the matches.

    You're surely aware of it, but I remind it just in case. There are lot of skilled players (like we saw the other weekend during the Supernova Showdown) so I think that it would be nice to have this series of events opening up to them as well.

    Thanks for organizing the event so frequently, anyway. It's cool to watch and a great opportunity for learning and getting inspired.

    We intend to widen the field, it's just that with my being on holiday and Captain being caught up in sorting out his mods for Showdown, there hasn't been a lot of time to sort anything out so we thought we'd give Godde another chance to play Matiz now we have some solid rules in place.

    Expect someone new next time.

    There were actually a number of people we preferred to have play, but a lot of people are busy this week. Nothing against Godde at all - I actually think it's great that we get to see this rematch. The plan was just not to bring back a repeat challenger so soon.

    We'll get things back on track again after this now that Quitch is back from his vacation. Once players finish school exams, there will be a lot more people ready to challenge. Maybe they will even get to challenge Godde, instead!

    I'm really happy right now with the players we have for this week though. Godde is an excellent player and deserves another chance at taking down that big bully who calls himself the King. :p

    I think Matiz has started calling himself emperor.

    Do the players choose the planets?

    Challenger chooses first, and then each round after that will have the planet decided by the loser from the previous round. Maps have to be single-planet systems with a radius of 375-1050.

    Each player can call one rehost in the game, but only if they didn't choose the map. A player calling for a rehost can either ask to use the same map or request that a new one be chosen by the other player.

    Any dual cast? Or is it only Zaphodx who'll be casting?

    We weren't sure so we didn't announce it, but @thesambasti is also casting.

    We'd happily crown them queen if requested.

    Godde is losing 2-1, but his map choices have been amazing!
