Hi-Rez Studios is continuing it’s relationship with DreamHack ATL by hosting the Smite and Paladins World Championships with them this November 16th-18th at the World Congress Center.
Part of the Hi-Rez Expo, Smite and Paladins will have split prize pools between each version of the game, (PC and Xbox/PS4) unlike games like Call of Duty that exclusively host events on the PlayStation platform due to co-marketing deals.
Smite Pro League: $1 Million USD prize pool. (PC/Console Split)
Paladins Premier League: $300k USD (PC/Console Split)
The events will be ran by their new esports production company Skillshot Media and streamed via a couple different platforms. Smite has an exclusive deal with Microsoft’s Mixer platform while Paladins (as part of the WESA) will be broadcast on Facebook. Everything else at Dreamhack will be available on Twitch. How’s that for all bases covered?
