King of the Beasts AndreasG

Hello Commanders,

Players have fought head-to-head in our 1v1 ranked for 7 seasons. Many have climbed over the scraps of fallen foes in an anxious scramble to reach the coveted Uber #1 rank. Previously, this has been a final moment of instant, assured glory. That is about to change.

At the end of the seventh ranked 1v1 season on 2020-07-24:00:00 UTC, AndreasG as Uber #1 claimed bragging rights, glory, and the Beast commander.

What about the other Ubers that were hot on his heels, hoarding their points, diligently annihilating their way to the highest echelons of destructive mastery?

Now we are giving the top players the glorious opportunity to challenge for the crown in a best-of-7 1v1 series with the winner claiming US$1,000 along with exclusive use of the Beast King Commander.

But a note of caution to the eventual King Beast: complacent Kings seldom hold onto their title for long. A new challenger may present themselves in the seasons to come, and there can only be one…

King of the Beasts Prizes

The winner will be awarded:

  • exclusive use of the Beast King Commander
  • US$1,000
