The SMITE Launch Tournament prize pool hits $200k! But wait. There's more!

by HiRez ESports | Mar 21, 2014

To add to the pressure of teams, we decided to add more incentives to winning!

Let's start off by mentioning that the team that comes in 1st place at the SMITE Launch Tournament will be invited to come to Shanghai, China (expenses paid) and compete in a SMITE showmatch against a Chinese team in June 2014. The match date will be between June 5 - June 8 as part of the Tencent Games Arena (TGA) spring season.

And since we felt that just wasn't enough, we decided to sweeten up the pot for the 1st-4th place teams:

1st: Five (5) Intel Core i7 processors: i7-4770k LGA1150

2nd: Five (5) Intel Core i7 processors: i7-3770k LGA1155

3rd: Five (5) Intel Core i7 processors: i7-3770k LGA1155

4th: Five (5) Intel Core i7 processors: i7-3770k LGA1155

Needless to say, there's a lot on the line!

We're only a week away from the start of the tournament and only 4 days away until the official launch! The anticipation and excitement is growing by the minute! We thank for all of your support to make all of this worth while and we look forward to meeting you all down here in our home of Atlanta, Georgia!
