    Hello everyone!

    Recently we got a suggestion on the forums about introducing King of the Hill into the server, a game that requires you and your faction to hold position on a certain hill. If you are to stay on the hill for the required time with your faction without being knocked off you will win the game, and a chest with some cool rewards will spawn.

    This addition to Skycade has previously been suggested, but at the time we were unable to implement this addition due to lack of existing plugins and or a developer with the time and recourses to pull this off.

    However at this time it is not so much of an issue for us to implement this, and we have! The event is scheduled on 2 days in the week: Friday and Sunday at 8 PM UK time. We're of opinion that 8 PM UK time covers the time zones in both the UK and US.

    The prizes of these events can always change and we will therefore not give any accurate list of items that you can win, but it includes crate keys!

    There has been some concern from the community about the possibility of a faction to always win the KoTH event, if this is the case we will have to make the decision to either count that faction out or disable the event entirely.

    Happy halloween!

    Good job!

    It was cool when the KoTH was on earlier for testing, not many people but it was nice to test it out. Oh, and, the prizes are pretty awesome :)
