Renegades Win Big At SMITE Mid Season Invitational
Congratulations go out to the Renegades as their SMITE squad wins it all at the Mid Season Invitational! After a 5-4 performance during the season locked in the bottom seed of the SPL, the Renegades got to work at MSI. Their first win came against the Pittsburgh Knights, a flawless 2-0 victory that avenged a 3-0 loss earlier in the season. Dignitas was up next, and the Renegades took them down 3-0 to secure their spot in the finals against Splyce.
Splyce had seen similar success on the other side of the bracket, running through their opponents in the quarter and semi-finals. However, they ran into a wall with the Renegades. Following a game 1 victory at the 33 minute mark, Renegades crushed Splyce in game 2 by a 23-4 margin. Game 3 would be a little less action packed, but Renegades were methodical in their deconstruction of Splyce, taking the series 3-0.
It was an exciting outcome for Renegades, who struggled for the first 7 weeks of the season with visa issues for their players. After getting those issues figured out, they stormed onto the scene and managed to qualify. With a major LAN win under their belts, their prospects for Worlds are looking strong.
