Now, let’s take a look at the Smite Pro League 2020 and how the competition is stacking up at the end of the Phase 1 Playoffs. Below are the final standings for the six teams that made it to the Playoffs from the Phase 1 Season: 

  • (1) Ghost Gaming
  • (2) Radiance
  • (3-4) Sanguine Esports 
  • (3-4) Spacestation Gaming
  • (5-6) Pittsburgh Knights 
  • (5-6) Renegades 

The Phase 1 Playoffs were simply crazy – nothing matched up with the final placings of the season. Ghost Gaming, despite finishing third in the season, managed to muster up a phenomenal performance to beat out both Spacestation Gaming and Sanguine Esports and claim first place. Meanwhile, both of those other teams plummeted in the standings.

The same goes for Radiance who, despite nearly failing to qualify for the Playoffs, managed to surprise everybody and finish just second beneath Ghost Gaming. 

The SMITE Pro League 2020 is looking great – the Mid-Summer Update should nourish the competition further to help the competitors experiment further with their gameplay.

Until now, dates for Phase 2 haven’t surfaced yet as the competition aims to return to a LAN environment. Stay tuned to https://www.esportsguide.com/ for any updates!
