SK picks up SMITE-squad!

ImageFans of SMITE rejoice. SK Gaming has rolled the dice and throw their massive weight into the ring. SK is the first major organization to venture into this title.

What is SMITE you ask? It's a third person Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game developed and published by Hi-Rez Studios. It's skillshot based, while having that grand feeling of playing DOTA from something other than an airplane. The controls are fluid, the combat is exciting and the match time is a breath of fresh air running between 20 - 40 minutes a game. It is free-to-play using only "gems" as cosmetic upgrades for things like skins.

But who is on the team? We are glad to present our brand new roster:

NL Jeroen "Xaliea" Klaver - Left Lane
FI Sami "Kairis" Kairajärvi - Left Lane

AT Leo "Psiyo" Helpferer - Mid lane

AT Rafael "Smek" Kowar - Right lane
GB Jacob "GetFit" Lowings - Right lane


The team already has a great achievement under their belt taking first place at Paris Games Week and winning 2500 euro. They displayed phenomenal teamwork and skill. By picking up this promising squad SK-Gaming proves once again to be invested in taking eSports to the next level.

Finally, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is DeamonMachine and I'll be handling the SMITE news for SK. I also run a SMITE webshow called Beyond the Rift, where we talk about all the news and strategies. We will often have Hi-Rez (developers) on the show for Q&A.

I'd like to end with the note that this is great news for the SMITE community. The community has been pushing hard to put this game in the light that it deserves and we can all appreciate SK's efforts by picking up this title.
