SMITE, the battleground of the gods, has gone live! Hi-Rez Studios has officially launched the live version of SMITE, and are celebrating its release with a massive $200,000 tournament that will run from Friday, March 28th until Sunday, March 30th in Atlanta Georgia. Half of this prize money was earned via community purchases in the SMITE cash shop – which I think is pretty cool! The tournament includes four European teams and four North American teams that qualified through the weekly tournament series that began in early January, and will occur in front of a live audience. It will also be livestreamed worldwide on the SMITE twitch channel.
