Smite, a popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game for PC with over 5 million players to-date, is launching a $2 million dollar championship this weekend in Atlanta, making it the fourth game to ever offer a prize pool of over a million dollars.
The eight teams, Cognitive Red, Cognitive Prime, OH MY GOD, DID, Name Not Found, We Love Bacon, Titan, and SK Gaming, will battle it out in the third-person alternative MOBA, the winners taking $1 million home. You can buy tickets to watch the championship live here, or watch it on the Smite Twitch channel.
