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 from June 18 to June 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, Hispanoamérica and China. The format is an nine-team, single-elimination tournament over three days, featuring the top three teams from each of the North American and European SPL Spring Splits, along with one team from Brazil, one team from Hispanoamérica and one team from China. 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.
Paladins is a team-based shooter currently in Closed Beta. The fast action of Paladins features deep strategy elements and in-match character progression through decks of collectible cards. You can learn more at www.paladins.com.
