SMITE is a huge free-to-play MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) that has increased in size, complexity, and enjoyability year on year. And this year, between January 9th and January 11th, eight teams will compete for the third biggest prize pool in history that stands, as of January 6th, at a staggering 2.5 million dollars!
The teams competing in the final have won their regional rounds to win the honor of being part of the final challenge. It’s held over three days of intense gameplay that’ll have you hooked as you watch the masters and cheer on your favorite teams.
From North America, the finalists are Cognitive Red and Cognitive Pride. The European spots go to Titan and SK Gaming. The Chinese finalists are Oh My God and DID. From South America and Brazil, the two final teams are Name Not Found and We Love Bacon.
Aside from the awesome competitive matches, attendees can jump on a pc and try their hand at the game, network, get help and advice, and hone their skills. And, for console fans, SMITE will be unveiling their much-anticipated XBOX One SMITE game! A MOBA on console?!? You bet! And it looks awesome!!!
And – for those cosplay fans – there’s a $5,000 cosplay competition during the championships, too!
