Although we’re only about halfway through Season 6, it’s time to start looking forward to the 2019 SMITE World Championship! This November, we will be returning to DreamHack Atlanta as part of the Hi-Rez Expo — where our top teams from all over the world will hit the Battleground to fight for glory and more than $1,000,000 between PC and console. Many will enter, but only one team will walk away as the Season 6 SMITE World Champions!

This post will cover all the details you need regarding SWC 2019 at DreamHack Atlanta — including format, participating teams, and match schedules. We’ll also go over information regarding the placement round for this event, which will happen a week before Hi-Rez Expo kicks off.

Before the Placement Round bracket, we will hold three matches which will serve as a dedicated SMITE Console World Championship, and will offer console players a prize pool that’s separate from the overall DreamHack Atlanta prize pool. The two final teams will move on in the Placement Round bracket and potentially qualify for the World Championship playoffs at DreamHack Atlanta.
