The final Caseking of the Hill by Alpenföhn tournament, called King of Kings, has been announced with a 7,500€ prize purse and eight teams.
With five Caseking of the Hill by Alpenföhn tournament set to still be held, the organizers have decided to change the format and combine them all into one big tournament.
In addition to the 5,000€ of prize money that was still going to be given out in the five remaining CKoTHs, an extra 2,500€ will be added for a total prize purse of 7,500€.
The previous three kings, namely NiP, fnatic and Natus Vincere, have been directly invited to the King of Kings by Alpenföhn tournament, set to be held in mid-November.
iBUYPOWER, despite being crowned kings earlier, will not be able to play due to being in North America. Five more teams have been invited, and split into two groups as follows:
|Group A||Group B|
Group stage will feature the same format as Fragbite Masters, meaning GSL-style groups with the first round played in best-of-one, and the rest of the group in best-of-three.
Groups will be played out on Tuesday through Friday, November 11-14, while the finals for the top four teams have been scheduled for Sunday, November 16:
|November 11-12||Group A|
|November 13-14||Group B|
