Collision XI New York took place the last weekend and it was an exciting Tournament. Smash Bros WiiU was the game played for the streamed matches, and were they intensive. Anti, from the Rotation Crew, dominated the series with Diddy Kong, going undefeated to the Grand Finals.
He was forced to change it up with Shiek after his opponent, Dabuz put down Anti’s Diddy Kong play with Rosalina and Luma. The change served Anti well though, as Shiek’s maneuverability ended up beating out Rosalin’s map control with Luma. Anti walked away with 60% of the Prize pool.

Last week Hi-Rez studios put on their first SMITE world championships, and it was an amazing tournament to behold. The casters made the crowd feel alive and connected to the teams, matches were, for the most part, excellent, and the Grand Finals was almost DOTA 2 International worthy. We won’t go into too many details, but the match was Titan vs Cognitive Prime. Prime was very confidante going in, blatantly telling reporters they were expecting to sweep the set 3-0. But Titan put up more of a fight then Prime was expecting, and pushed the match to a 5th game, with Prime in the lead. In the end, after a strong push by Titan, Prime swooped in for a team kill and finished off Titan’s Minotaur. Though they both still ended up being winners, considering they got hefty chunks of the $2,612,260 prize pool.
