    A handful of the BEASTLIEST teams in Planetary Annihilation are about to square off for eternal glory — and an epic prize.

    Uber Entertainment is excited to announce BATTLE OF THE BEASTS, its first ever official tournament for Planetary Annihilation. Taking place March 28 at 11AM PST, Battle of the Beasts is an eight team, doubles-style tournament where the winning team will walk away with a completely unique (and beastly) custom commander. Also, glory.

    The entire tournament will be broadcasted on Twitch and hosted by ZaphodX and co-hosted by our own metabolical. Teams will be allowed to stream, too, which should bring you some amazing angles on the battles. To watch the tournament live, follow and stay up with ZaphodX’s Twitch.TV page on March 28. Battle of the Beast’s official web page will also be broadcasting the event, as well as archives of all the action.

    Excited? We are, too. And here's the roster:

    Why am I a buzzkill for simply providing the info that Uber didn't make clear?

    Who are the teams? Looking forward to seeing some high level team play, I'm a bit sick of only 1v1 tournaments.

    Did I mention :eek:?

    An announcement Announcement will be coming out soon. Brad will be able to say more, because I do not want to give away something I shouldn't.

    EDIT: TOTALLY got ninja'd by Brad. That guy is a BEAST. Oh wait....

    But why this one? For organisation or for what reason?
    And which top players are invited?
    Well, then looking forward to the following tournaments and of course this one... :)

    Oh boy, an announcement Announcement! Will we get to see the comm before the tourney?

    I'd love to see monthly or quarterly official tourneys with custom comms as rewards, great publicity and cheapish for uber too I'd guess.

    I'd guess it's just because A: it's easier to organise with a few players in close contact with the organisers and B: it'll be good publicity if they can get a high standard of play and make a big event out of it.

    Sorry for double post
