King of The Hill | Season 3 | Special Episode Finale
It’s been an amazing Season 3 for King of the Hill with some great players on great maps. The support from our sponsor (Relic Entertainment) and the community has been at a record level for the KOTH series and for this, we are incredibly grateful.
Part of King of the Hill’s objective as an event, is to contribute to community efforts by forcing our top players to ‘playtest’ new maps, new balance patches or even new game modes in order to get the essential feedback that is needed to continue growing the quality of content CoH2. It is because of this ethic that we have agreed a special edition with Relic Entertainment for Episode #10.
Episode #10 is going to be an invite only event played solely on the Company of Heroes 2 ‘ New Commander Preview Mod’ which has been tweaked by Relic entertainment specially for this event.
This will give us our first glimpse at how the patch will work at top competitive level and give the community and developers another chance before release to share their thoughts and suggestions.
