We have picked up an equally talented group of individuals with a mix of high end challengers cup league play and Smite Xbox Lan experience. The 2016 Team Rival Smite team will look as follows;
Austin 'AppointedGnome' Glasspoole
Hydra was a mainstay in the early stages of Xbox competitive Smite, where he was the Jungler for Paradigms 2nd Place team at the ESL UK Lan. After the Paradigm team split up at the end of the season he set out to captain a team with the Aware's (EU Champions) captain, Zenborne.
Elexum has bounced around the challengers cup scene but was never a main stay on a roster, his most notable showing was with the Men of Aeron in the Challengers Cup circuit. He has made waves already in the Xbox EU Scene however, already cementing himself as a premiere mid laner going into Season 1 of the SCL.
Headhunter has played in the challengers cup for Revival Gaming and Donors By Heart.
Zenborne has been another main stay in the EU competitive scene, forming the EU championship roster, Aware Gaming and hopes to bring his team building experience to the table once again in the first season of the SCL. Coming fresh off of a third place finish at the Smite World Championship, Zenborne is hungry to show what the EU scene can do on the worlds stage once more.
"We were already familiar with the management team from the previous season, so approaching them seemed to be the logical step. The whole team is looking forward to working with Rival and look forward to the season ahead." - Matthew 'Hydra' Cheesman
