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.

The SWC crowd-funding campaigns have already been successful in reaching the $1,000,000 mark while the overall prize pool increases daily.
