As you may have noticed the SMITE World Championships concluded over the weekend with eight of the best SMITE teams battling it out for a mammoth prize pool. Now Hi-Rez has released some figures from the event, which make for some interesting reading.
In total over a million people watched the SMITE Twitch stream on the final day of competition with that number rising to a total of almost 2.9million across the entire weekend.

The best of five finals initially looked like it would be a easy win for Cognitive Prime as they took the first two games easily to force match point against Titan. However a thrilling turn around (and some incredible matches) saw Titan level the playing field to 2-2 meaning that one game would decide who took home $1,306,130 and who would be left with $522,452.
Cog Prime ended up taking the final game, and was presented with the impressive trophy on stage.
Elsewhere Cognitive Red and SK Gaming won $391,839 and $261,226 for third and fourth places, respectively while the bottom 4 teams each took home $32,653. Just incase reading numbers isn’t your thing a handy infographic has been added below so you can look at all that but in nice colours.
