Mortality eSports SMITE Team had a busy week in the Hirez Studios' SMITE Pro League (SPL). For those unaware, the SPL is Hi-Rez's version of the LCS from the MOBA League of Legends. In its own style, the SPL puts 6 professional level teams from the North American and EU regions in a multi-month season which leads up to a play-offs, and subsequently, the SMITE World Championships (SWC). The SWC is expected to deliver a seven figure prize pool after crowd-funding.
For Mortality SMITE, this week's schedule, the first full week after the Team Solo Mid Invitational, included three matches against some of the biggest names in eSports' SMITE teams, and after all was said and done, Mortality has taken two losses, dropping them down to the number three spot in Europe with a 8-5 record:
