Media Wrap Up:
On the XBox One side, Team Envyus faced well known Smite org COGnitive Gaming. The COG organization won last year with their PC squad, but Cloud9 bought the players after the 2015 Smite World Championships. COG rebuilt with a new squad, and after a few more roster changes, the team of Djpernicus, Aror, Meerkat, TheBest, and Cabom was formed.
Envy is a relative newcomer to Smite, joining in October of 2015 when they bought AFK Gaming Smite Pro League team of Weak3n, CycloneSpin, KikiSoCheeky, Incon, and Allied.
Both teams are made up of PC players who made the switch to console after being bounced from contention for the PC Smite World Championship.
Team Envyus ended up winning the final match 3-0. Following the match, both teams expressed a desire to return to the more competitive PC scene, but also noted there was a lot of room to grow for console players.
Meanwhile, in the PC competition, North America’s team Enemy faced Epsilon eSports from the EU. After a dominant first game from Epsilon, Enemy started out hot in games 2 and 3, but a possible lack of main stage experience from the younger team showed, as they failed to close out either game. Epsilon swept the series 3-0.
