Less than two months after the SMITE World Championship was won by a team that included three Swedes, we’re thrilled to announce that both SMITE and our new team-based shooter, Paladins, will host tournaments in Jönköping, Sweden at Dreamhack Summer 2016, June 18 to 20.
The SMITE Masters at Dreamhack Summer 2016 will serve as the capstone of the Spring Split for the SMITE Pro League, bringing together the best teams from Europe, North America, Brazil and Hispanoamérica. The format is an eight-team, single-elimination tournament over three days, featuring the top three teams from each of the NA and European SPL Spring Splits, along with one team from Brazil and one team from Hispanoamérica. The winning teams will take home the largest portion of the Spring Split’s $450,000+ USD prize pool.
The Paladins Founder’s Tournament at Dreamhack Summer 2016 will mark the first-ever Paladins LAN tournament at the professional level. It will bring the top two teams from the Americas, along with the top two European Paladins teams together in a competition for a prize pool of $100,000 USD. The competing teams will be determined based on qualifying tournaments held during the Spring, details of which will be announced soon.
We’re very excited to be headed to Dreamhack with both SMITE and Paladins. We’ll see you in Sweden in June!
