The Smite World Championship in Atlanta has wrapped up and Shacknews was among those in attendance. While on hand, our own Andrew Zucosky spoke to associate game designer Christina Grossrieder about some of the 5v5 MOBA's Pantheons.
Grossrieder discusses her day-to-day duties, which includes Pantheon research and voice pack contributions. She also discusses some of the difficulties in creating distinctly different Pantheons and some of the Pantheons that are on the team's wish list.
For those that missed the Smite World Championship, the Grand Finals came down to North America's Cognitive Prime facing off against Europe's Titan. Over a million unique viewers jumped on Twitch to watch Cognitive Prime triumph in the end, with over 2.9 million daily views accrued across the entire tournament. The total prize pool was listed at $2,612,610, with $2 million of that raised via crowdfunding.
