It’s not everyday that you’re part of the first of something. This weekend gave us at Lore Hound such an opportunity, the first group of people to attend the SMITE North American Championship. Attending before it’s cool is the only way to turn your nose at something later, so we snapped up the chance, grabbed a ticket and flew to Atlanta. The venue has changed from the Pre-Launch Tournament earlier this year and so has the god-based MOBA. And that change was only for the better.
Six teams are facing off for a chance at two spots in January’s World Championship. If you weren’t able to snag a ticket come join us and live vicariously through our expert photography. Cosplay, environment, staging, Internet famous faces and plenty more resides beyond that humble page cut. Click it to put your peepers on our exclusive SMITE NA Championship slideshow.
