Hi Rez Studios chose to crowdfund the event, much like The International for Dota 2, through a set of in game items found in the Odyssey. The $2.6 million USD raised makes this the third largest prize pool in Esports history.

If you’re keen to watch some professional Smite action you can tune in from 2.00 am AEDT to twitch.tv/smitegame. The full schedule and brackets can be found here.

Avid reader and general geek, justifying the time I spend playing games by writing about them. I try not to discriminate by genre, but I remember story more than gameplay. I’ve been playing League for longer than Akali and I’m still Silver. Fallout 3 and MGS3 may be the pinnacle of gaming.
