Media Wrap Up:

On the PC side, there were two Best of 5 semi final matches.  The first featured EU stalwart Paradigm facing North American upstart Enemy.  The NA team came into tournament as clear underdogs, but have thus far surprised their opponents.  Back in July, the team was relegated from the Smite Pro League with a 1-13 record, and now they will compete for Smite’s greatest prize: a World Championship and the $500,000 USD first place payout.

Enemy won the match 3-1.  After the match, both teams took time for a press conference with members of the media.

The second match of the day was one of the most anticipated competitions in recent history: Epsilon vs Cloud9.  Epsilon had a near perfect record during the EU pro league season, and Cloud9 is made up of the members from last year’s Smite World Championship winning team.

Epsilon took the match to five games, winning 3-2.  Here’s what both side had to say following the match:
