Pittsburgh Knights Crowned World Champs At Smite World Championship For Second Time
This past weekend, Hi-Rez held its annual Expo, which includes the Smite World Championship. Both events were held entirely online, but that didn't stop teams from trying their best to win part of the $600,000 pot. One skilled team, the Pittsburgh Knights, walked away from the event with the bulk of that prize money -- a $400k haul -- and the title of World Champions.
The Knights competed against five other teams: Ghost Gaming, Radiance, Renegades, Sanguine Esports, and Spacestation Gaming for a chance at the prize. In the end, they found themselves going head-to-head against Ghost Gaming in a best out of five that took all five matches to decide the winner, with the Pittsburgh Knights winning 3 to 2. This makes the second win for the team.
As for the other $200k of the prize pool, that was divided between the other five teams with Ghost Gaming receiving $100k for second place, Radiance and Renegades getting $40k each for 3rd and 4th place and Sangine Esports and Spacestation Gaming getting $10k each for 5th and 6th. Full details on the event are available on the Smite Pro League site.
