From 10-17 November, Mortality SMITE traveled to Cologne, Germany to compete in the SMITE European Regional Championships (ERC), The ERC was a culminating event for teams placing in the top 4 of Hirez Studios' SMITE Pro League (SPL) as well as the 5th and 6th place teams who survived the Challenger League Wildcard Tournament. As the second seed in the ERC, Mortality SMITE enjoyed a first round BYE placing them in the Semi-Finals match. Unfortunately, Mortality SMITE suffered from tournament jitters resulting in 3 painful losses in a row to SK Gaming. For Mortality SMITE, this ends the road to the SMITE World Championships in 2015. For a more detailed Recap of the ERC, Check out SMITEPro's Article.
Going forward, Mortality SMITE will be considering team/player concerns, any lingering performance issues, and preparing for what's to come in the European Pro SMITE Scene.
This past week, Rico Suave practiced at home and will continue training for this winter's major events, North East Championship, Kombo Klash, KIT, and APEX 2015. Also, Season 2 of Killer Instinct is here, so make sure to watch Rico Suave's stream daily to see more on Season 2.
