Awaken to open official tryouts for its' Smite division.
As the 2016 Smite Summer Split comes to an end, we at Cloud9 would like to take this opportunity to announce our official team tryout process for a Smite console and PC team. By this winter, we intend to explore any and all options in regards to talent both local and abroad before fielding another roster. To begin this process, we're starting at the roots of the competitive community and leaving an open access application process to the solo queue community.
Tristin Chambers, founder of Awaken eSports, commented on the opening and expansion into Smite stating "Today, we are thrilled to announce that a new game is joining our ranks in the form of Awaken Smite. In the past, we have often invested in up-and-coming talent with great success and we believe that now with the upcoming Fall Split, we need to accelerate the development of young and ambitious players even more, and we are extremely proud to be finally moving into Smite, and we have high hopes for the future and hope to make some serious noise in the coming weeks."
The first stage of the process begins immediately, as the form linked below will collect and compile information from any applicants interested in completing it. Before beginning the form, please know that there is already an initial expectation of being at least Master Tier or above in your respective regions solo queue ladder at the time of applying. Anyone who does not meet this guideline or submits false information will be removed from the applicant database.
It’s important to note that we cannot actively control who completes the form. Keeping that in mind, the first two questions deal directly with a player’s contract status. If a player is contracted, they will be required to submit evidence of written permission from their contract holder clarifying that they are permitted to reach out to us.
Finally, to help deter fake submissions, each applicant must also provide a high-resolution screenshot, including a timestamp, with a League of Legends client logged into a Master or Challenger level account matching a summoner name from their submitted list.
In order to be a qualified player, the following requirements will need to be met:
