Hi-Rez Studios, developers of the highly successful F2P SMITE MOBA game and Iron Gaming, a new eSports events organization, have teamed up to create a unique tournament circuit for amateur gamers. The Iron Games will be a series of online and LAN events leading up to a grand final at the Rooster Teeth Expo (RTX) in Austin, TX July 4th 6th 2014.
Amateur SMITE teams will have the opportunity to compete online to win up to $250 in cash and passes to the LAN events held each month. Teams will also compete at the monthly LAN events to win up to $2000 and their way into the grand finals at RTX. The grand finals at RTX will allow amateur players to play like the pros on a massive main stage surrounded by 40,000 attendees at the event. The grand finals winner will receive $10,000 in cash with second place taking home $2,500 and third/fourth place winners taking home $500 each.
