The SMITE Challenger Circuit is our upper-level amateur bracket that serves as a middle ground between the entry-level SMITE Open Circuit and the elite SMITE Pro League.
No Region Locking
This crossplay circuit supports all platforms (PC, Xbox, PS4, Switch) and features 6 teams from North America and 6 teams from Europe -- but there is no region locking for these teams, so international players who can compete on NA or EU servers are allowed to play in the Challenger Circuit.
LAN Events & Relegations
The Challenger Circuit is broken into four phases, with each phase lasting four weeks. The top teams from the end of each phase will qualify for a Circuit Playoff LAN event at the Hi-Rez Esports studio in Atlanta, GA. The bottom teams from the end of each phase will be placed in a relegations bracket, where they’ll have to fight against the top-performing teams from the SMITE Open Circuit to keep their spot in the Challenger Circuit.
Open Qualifiers for the SMITE Challenger Circuit are happening from February 8-29, 2020. Visit our blog for details on how to participate.
The SMITE Challenger Circuit Qualifiers will be broadcast throughout February and early March! You can watch them live on any of our official channels -- including Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, and Steam.
