Today we got to witness the first in house Hi-Rez tournament. Today's tournament was the North American, with the European being held tomorrow afternoon. Keep in mind, all teams can still sign up for each, whether they be NA teams or EU, but all games will be played on that respective region. Down below you will find recaps for each match and start times for you to quickly access the matches you want to watch. Enjoy. Thanks for visiting us.
Until I can get someone to embed the video, here is a link.
Technical difficulties required Hi-Rez to end the streaming of this match. The parts we did see showed both teams playing well. It was ROOT who came away with the win in a quick fashion from the information on the match details.
ROOT Gaming vs. SNIPE Gaming (1:25:00)
The same sustain composition we saw SNIPE gaming use last week was not as successful this time around. ROOT had an incredible ultimate combination between Hades, Freya and Bacchus. The composition allowed them to have the edge and take the match.
Curse Gaming vs. MyoElectric (2:21:00)
It wasn’t a kind return for MyoElectric to the Smite competitive scene. Even without their star player, the famous PonPon, all players of Curse Gaming played extremely well. Led by TheBest and Macetodaface, they were able to come away with a win and a trip to the finals.
ROOT Gaming vs. Curse Gaming (best of three)
Game one (3:51:00)
Game one was much of the same from ROOT as it was in their match against SNIPE. An extremely strong composition gave them the edge. The Hades and Freya comp used the strategy of focusing Ymir rather than Apollo, and it worked brilliantly.
Game two (4:40:00)
Curse Gaming had a very strong early game showing, having the lead throughout most of the match. It wasn’t until Zapman felt he had enough farm to start carrying his team to victory. With his extremely strong late game and the support of the rest of ROOT gaming, they take the first ever NA Hi-Rez 1k tournament.
