  • NA Championship 1st Seed - Cognitive Red

    by HiRez Dan | Nov 20, 2014
    Forming just before the SWC qualifiers as ‘The GameChangers’, the team quickly became the solidified 4th seed before being recognized by the Cognitive Organization. During the 10-Week qualifying period they placed 4th 6 times, and only broke into the finals once. The team was on the verge of not qualifying for the Kick Off LAN, but Snipe was able to take a critical game against Five Angry Men and keep COG Red’s dreams alive. At the Pro League Kick Off LAN all the hard training and scrimming against their sister team payed off, and COG Red were able to perform one the biggest upsets in Smite history. They took out COG Prime and then Team Dignitas to claim their place as the dominate team in North America.

  • NA Championship 2nd Seed - Cognitive Prime

    by HiRez Dan | Nov 19, 2014
    Cognitive Gaming first made its appearance in Smite when they picked up second seeded Snipe heading into Pax Prime. The team saw some success, but after placing 3rd and disappointing showings afterwards they split. MLCst3alth and Omegatron went on to join Exertus, an up and coming powerhouse, and the Cognitive sponsorship followed. Finally there was a team that could compete with Team Dignitas. COG destroyed the North American scene leading up to the launch tournament, going undefeated for 8 straight weeks. Unfortunately that didn’t carry over at LAN where they finished 3rd. Heading into the SPL Cognitive Gaming became Cognitive Prime when their sister team, Red, was picked up and it became a battle between the two COGs as both teams pushed one another. Prime heads to the North American Regional Championships as 2nd seed.

  • EU Championship 1st Seed - Fnatic

    by HiRez Dan | Nov 13, 2014
    The roster recently acquired by Fnatic has gone by a few names. The team was originally formed by PrOxyQQ and Funballer as Team Kicked and comprising of 4 players dropped from their previous teams and Xaliea who simply left his. Even in their infancy, Fnatic clearly had potential, but it wasn’t until the start of the SPL season that the team, then Exposed Secrets, started to really grow. They began the season with their current coach, Dazer, playing support before picking up PainDeViande (now sub for NA team Complexity) and eventually HalfDevil. With the introduction of HalfDevil to the roster, Fnatic was invigorated and played a perfect tournament in the TSM Invitational LAN. They went on to end the SPL season 14-6 in first seed going into Playoffs. Their pure mechanical expertise may very well propel them straight to worlds.

  • EU Championship 2nd Seed - Mortality eSports

    by HiRez Dan | Nov 12, 2014
    Mortality eSports was one of the two teams to join the SPL through the Play-Ins. They went into the round robin as an upgraded BloodyTech, having recently picked up iRaffer in the jungle. iRaffer was largely plug and play for Mortality eSports and fit right into the team culture of raw aggression. Upon joining the SPL, further roster changes happened with Psiyo, former mid laner of Cloud 9 joining the team in the solo lane. There was a lot of anticipation to see the former mid player’s performance. Mortality is an incredibly threatening team, each player seems ready to engage at any moment, and it’s almost impossible to predict who is going to start the fight. One thing is for sure tho, they will fight tooth and claw in the Smite EU Playoffs to find a spot at worlds.

    Team SoloMid is a big name in esports and a big name in smite. Soon after Azzur was acquired by Cloud 9, the team Amaranthine appeared to contest them in the European weekly tournaments. Soon picked up by the TSM brand, the original roster had a dominant performance up to and through the Smite Launch Tournament. Since then, sailing has not been quite as smooth for TSM, though they’re still undoubtedly one of the strongest teams in Smite. With recent changes, including putting former coach Zimpstar in the hunter role, and acquiring ShadowQ, formerly of Team Dignitas, as a Coach, Zimpstar and the boys are looking for a repeat title as the world’s strongest Smite team.

  • NA Regional Championship 4th Seed - Team Dignitas

    by HiRez Dan | Nov 06, 2014
    Team Dignitas has been a consistent and dominating force in North American Smite for over a year. There were two teams that ran the competitive scene since tournaments started; Curse and Juice. Eventually the cores of these teams joined forces into ROOT Gaming which was picked up by Team Dignitas on June 27th, 2013. That roster was together for more than a year winning multiple Weeklies and LAN tournaments, most notably placing 2nd at the 200k Launch Tournament. Coming into the SPL they felt a change was needed and picked up veterans Shing and Daretocare. The last spot was filled by a high level ranked player, Gnaw. Their SPL season started off slow, but once the players felt a little more comfortable together they kicked it into gear and finished 4th.

YOUNGBAE joined the team after winning the launch tournament with Team SoloMid and with the start of the SPL essentially re-formed the team’s roster around himself. This new and mostly unproven roster had some explosive highs during the Pro-League and over the course of seven weeks they were able to refine their unique playstyle. In the later weeks, additional roster changes have left Cloud 9 looking very strong going into regional Playoffs.

Aror found a few players who had dabbled in competitive before, CycloneSpin and Soulshiner, as well as notable ranked players Samshrew and Hurriwind. They took the Play In’s by storm, winning the open bracket tournament and not dropping a single game in the round robins. The “Kings of Cheese” were not as strong in the SPL, but their unorthodox play style and picks were able to secure a couple games against their first round matchup, Team Dignitas. Expect the unexpected with Chunks as they go completely against the meta and look to surprise.

They were founded after the Smite Launch Tournament during the ten week qualifier for the SPL kick-off. Agilitas did compete in the SPL play-in but once again they were not quite able to make the cut. Ataraxia and the boys did not get discouraged. They made a roster change they felt was necessary and going into the Challenger’s Cup they came out of the gate with a ferocious week one and just kept winning. Over the 7 weeks Agilitas grew substantially and now as Aquila they’re ready to take on the other teams qualified for the European SPL Playoffs.
