The first ever SMITE Champtionships came to a close this weekend with European team Cognitive Prime taking home the grand prize of £1.3 million.
It seems the inaugural Smite Championship was a success with thousands tuning in to watch ancient gods battle it out against other ancient gods. In total the tournament offered over $2.5 million in prizes, with the grand prize being a pretty big $1.3 dollars, which according to Gamefront, was awarded to European team Cognitive Prime.
In the grand finals, Cognitive Prime faced off against Titan, essentially walking all over the top-seeded European team in the first two matches. Titan did however fight back making it a pretty intense championship final, they did take the prize in the third and fourth matches, but ultimately Cognitive Prime came out on top after making changes to its lineup – and banning Titan’s lynchpin character, Ares.
The second season of SMITE begins this month, as well as landing on the Xbox One in the form of an Open Beta, you can find out more about that here.
