“There’s never a dull moment in the world of Heavy Metal Machines and Metal League 6 will be no exception,” said Rodrigo Campos, Hoplon’s CEO. “Going on previous tournaments, we’d expect around 50 teams will register to take part, all clamouring to stake a claim on the fantastic €5,000 prize pot!”
“The Metal League follows the Metal Pass’s season and also a rotation rule,” explained Eros Carvalho, Hoplon’s Head of Studio. “This season the matches will take place on the European server; this system works side by side with the teams feature that’s already in the game.”
