KING of the HILL

What is KING of the HILL?

KING of the HILL competition is based on modified ELO rating system. Each pilot at the start of the competition will be assigned 1500 ELO points. Because of this there are no qualification or elimination rounds. ELO system awards pilots with points based on their finishing position in the heat and opponent strength. Heats will be arranged in a way where each pilot will fly with similarly skilled opponents.

How many pilots per heat?

Each heat will have 6 pilots

How many laps per heat?

Each pilot will have to fly 3 laps

Will there be spotters?

Pilots might get asked to spot a pilot.

What is the reason behind spotters?
