Set to start on January 9th, the SMITE World Championships (SWC) are just days away. The top 8 teams will square off over a 3 day competition with the winner taking home over $1.2 million of the total $2.5 million prize pool. This prize pool continues to grow with each Odyssey purchase made by players, and eclipses League of Legends' 2014 World Championship prize pool.

To get players into the SWC action, Hi-Rez Studios has released a brand new cinematic trailer and will even be giving away free gems. Here's the requirements if you're looking to cash in on some free gems:

  • 40 gems for every 10,000 Retweets prior to conclusion of the SWC Grand Finals on Sunday, January 11 (up to 400 gems total, which is 100,000 Retweets).
  • You must play one of the gods featured in the trailer between Tuesday, January 6, at 10:00 AM EST and Monday, January 12 at 5:00 AM EST to be eligible for the free gems.
  • Gems will be rewarded after Monday, January 12 at 5:00 AM EST and before Friday, January 16 at Noon EST.
  • Retweets must be genuine from unique Twitter accounts. Multiple RTs from the same account do not count.

  • That type of money makes me really wish I had ANY MOBA talent at all. Good luck to all the teams competing!

    $1.2 million..just stop and think about that for a sec. Something went wrong in society when we're giving video game nerds millions of dollars instead of using it to benefit the country itself. But hell, the fu(k do I know..
