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.
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.
