Wolfpack Returns to Smite
Today, LG Dire Wolves is excited to announce the acquisition of Team Pandamonium SMITE.
The Dire Wolves originally entered SMITE in early 2015 after picking up the winners of the SMITE Oceania invitational tournament, Slap N Tickle and quickly made a name for itself with the marque brother duo in RichardCastle and kikiomeo.
They achieved 2nd place at PAX Australia 2015, just missing out on the World Championships. A variety of factors lead to the team disbanding in the first part of 2016. However, the brothers will now once again be wearing the LG Dire Wolves tag having formed what is effectively a “super team” with former players of rival outfit Avant Garde.
Finishing first in the Hi-Rez Oceania Championship last month, the team will be heading to Atlanta for the SMITE Word Championships on Jan 5-8th.
To be as prepared as possible for SWC 2017, the team will be flying to Atlanta for a three-week bootcamp on December 14th prior to the beginning of the tournament with the aim to adapt to the meta and different playstyle the other regions bring.
Nicholas “RichardCastle” Gallaugher commented: "I'm absolutely delighted to be working with LG Dire Wolves again. I have nothing but great memories of our previous partnership and can't wait to represent them and our region at the SMITE World Championships. I have so much respect for everything Nathan and the others have been able to accomplish. The tremendous amount of support we have received from them in order to participate in this boot camp and put on the best possible showing at SWC is incredible, we couldn't ask for anything more."
Nathan "Rippii" Mott, Founder and CEO of LG Dire Wolves commented: “I’m very excited to be back in SMITE. LG Dire Wolves are one of the first eSports clubs to enter SMITE Oceania, I’ve always kept the scene close to me even when we parted ways with the previous squad earlier this year. We’re privileged to have the opportunity to support their upcoming SWC campaign giving them and Oceania the best shot possible.”
