Cognitive Prime win first Smite World Championship


US Smite esports team Cognitive Prime picked up $1.3 million after winning the first ever Smite World Championship (SWC).

They defeated former European sister team Titan 3-2 in a best-of-three finals match, with the final game giving Cognitive Prime 22 kills and 6 deaths.

“Each player showed incredibly strong individual performances throughout the tournament, but ultimately it was their teamwork, supporting staff, and perseverance when things looked bleak that helped them rise above their competition and claim their prize,” read a statement on the Cognitive Prime website.
The Cognitive Prime winning team consists of  John “BaRRaCCuDDa” Salter, Rosario “Jeff_Hindla” Villardi, Brett “MLCst3alth” Felley, Andrew “Andinster” Woodward and Ryan “Omegatron” Johnson.

“It has been an amazing weekend and we are so thankful to everyone who has supported Smite and HiRez Studios on our journey to the SWC,” added HiRez Studios in a statement. “The future of Smite is bright.”

The 2015 Smite World Championship was the first in the third-person MOBA game’s history.
