Tournament Information[edit]

Format[edit]

  • King of the Hill
    • 20 maps
    • The winner continues to defend until they are defeated.

Prize Pool[edit]

For 2016, $5,000 (USD) were distributed per monthly event, with $250 going to every map winner.

In November 2016, the event was held offline at BlizzCon with a prize pool of $7,000 with $1,000 per win.

Starting in January 2017, Ting began sponsoring the event alongside Blizzard Entertainment. This lead to a $2,500 prize pool increase. The regular prize pool became $7,000, with $350 going to every map winner. Additionally, the King's Bounty was introduced.

The King's Bounty added a $25 "bounty" for every win a "King" or "Queen" has, meaning that when they are defeated, the winner gets an extra $25 for each map won by them, on top of the regular $350 prize.

In June 2017, Ting stopped sponsoring the event and the prize pool returned to $5,000 at $250 per map win. Additionally, the King's Bounty was retired.

In August 2017, Blizzard chimed in with the newly acquired WarChest profits to raise the monthly prize pool to $10,000 for the remainder of the year. Each map now awards $500.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • The format is based on the Royal Rumble wrestling event.
