SMITE – Community initiative begins to increase tournament prize pool

[Game website] Developer of SMITE, Hi-Rez Studios, just revealed a new crowd pool initiative to increase the bounty for its upcoming World Championship tournament. Known as The Odyssey, a new item will be sold each week, with each sale contributing $1 per 200 gems towards the prize pool.


There are around 21 weeks before the first World Championship begin, and obviously the success of Dota 2’s community prize pool is a major factor in this. Known as “that” MOBA behind League of Legends and Dota 2, will SMITE step out of their shadows and have an awesome tournament? We shall see.
