King of The Hill | Season 2
The King of the Hill is a 'winner stays on' competition which offers a chance to win money whilst promoting high-level play. Prize money is increased for the longer someone is able to keep their throne, winning consecutive games in a row. In order to be the King, you must defeat the current King! Contesters to the throne are chosen from a list of sign-up players before each game in the Twitch chat by raffle.
If you'd like to talk about the tournament or keep updated, join the official Discord channel for the event - Join Discord
When there is no King, a game of Attrition will be played by 2 players voted from the selection pool. The winner will be King.

The prize pool is entirely decided by donations and support.
King of the Hill Season 2 is introducing three ways to support the CoH2 community tournament scene.
- Direct Donations to the stream
- Purchase of 'King of the Hill' Faceplates on the in-game store
- Donations to Matcherino or purchase of any Matcherino 'Rewards' (COMING SOON)
Matcherino - The link for matcherino will be coming soon
Matcherino will allow us to make payouts easily to players and setup rewards so that the community can contribute AND earn money themselves for supporting the scene. We'll also support stretch goals such as Rita Rush's CoH2 KOTH vehicle skins.
Matcherino allows any one of you to create something and 'sell it' with a percentage of the 'product/reward' going to the Prize Pool. We hope that community contributors and players will add contributions to help the scene. This could be things like
- Tutorials from high level players
- Community fan Art / Video
- Products like CoH2 mugs, shirts etc
The prizes for this tournament are as follows.
