We will be running this tournament every two weeks (twice a month) with four of the best indian teams competing to be the King. ‘The King Stay The King’. The winner of the first King of The Hill will automatically be in the Grand Final for the next King of The Hill until they are dethroned!


All four teams are seeded based on community opinion and previous performances. Since this is the first KOTH we will be seeding teams based on how they performed respectively in GGNETWORK#1 and GGNETWORK#2.
