We will be having our Code:Green event this coming saturday starting at 5:00PM EST with check-in running until 5:30PM EST. Unlike previous Code tournaments, we will be running this Code:Green event with more than 16 teams if enough check-in's are received, we need to practice to get ready for Divine Intervetion :)
Speaking of, remember that Divine Intervention is fast approaching and you only need $1 to donate to play in the event! We look foward to seeing everybody this weekend!
And remember to wish the big fluffy Drybear a Happy Birthday! He turned 47 this week!Post By Oponn on 2013-12-03
We're drawing closer to the day of our charity event Divine Intervention, and just wanted to update everybody on the status. We've had many people generously donate for the event so far, but we still have some spots open for the tournament, so we've added a way for you to donate for a chance to play with a specific team captain! So if you want the chance to play with Kelly, Bart, Lassiz and the rest of our amazing team captains, head over to the Divine Intervention page and click on a Team Captains name and follow the instructions!
There are only a few spots avaliable for each team captain so we cannot guarantee you will play with that person on the day of the event, we'll be taking the top three donors for each team captain and giving them a spot on that team. By donating though you still have the opportunity at all the wonderful prizes from the raffle and at chance at any other open spots for the days event!
If you have any questions about donating, playing on the 18th or other event items please feel free to contact us at email@example.com and we'll respond ASAP. Thank you again for everybody that has donated so far and we look forward to seeing you on the 18th!
Oh almost forgot the big news, Divine Intervention will be streamed live on the SMITEGAME channel on the 18th by DMBrandon and Drybear from the HiRez Studios in Georgia! Tiermonster is taking over for the day!Post By Oponn on 2013-11-30

Hello all! This weekend we will be running the first in our series of new events, Code:Black. Like the Code:Green conquest tournament, this will be a single sign up random team selection event. Check-in will work exactly the same as it has for Code:Green, at 5:00PM check-in will become avaliable and run until 5:30PM at that time check-in will close and teams will be assigned.
Code:Black is a potluck style event, where each time we run the event, the mode of gameplay will be chosen by you guys! We started with arena, but next time it may be assault or domination or even EU conquest. Gem prizing is the same for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, and the event will be streamed on our twitch.tv channel and casted by Drybear and Squiidish.
So come out and play, have some fun, and work off some of that turkey your gonna eat on Thursday. Also tune into our twitch.tv channel on thursday to see Lordwhizzkid and Jenfuu cover while the rest of us American get fat and nap on the couch.Post By Oponn on 2013-11-23
We had an amazing Code:Green today with the Turnbull ACs taking 1st place with a 2-0 record in the finals, and a strong showing from the Moonrunners for 2nd, and Jones Town Boys for 3rd. Each team wins gems and bragging rights, and we thank everybody that participated today in our Code:Green event.
Congratz also goes out to GracefulShanks and MadPalu for winning our drawing today of a God Pack and 800 gems. They graciously donated to the Divine Intervention event, and we hope to see them on the 18th as well, where more prizes and glory awaits!
Next weekend we will be running our first Code:Black event, and the game type will be Arena, check-in will work the same way it does for our Code:Green events, and please stay tuned to this page during the week for more information.
Finally to clear up some questions we had today during the check-in period of the tournament, we take a total of 96 people (or 16 teams and 1 sub for each team) for our Code:Green events. Why do we do this? Because we start at 5PM after the HiRez Smite Tournament wraps up, time is definatly a consideration. Our Code:Green events normally take 4-5 hours, and since many of our players are from EU it is very late, or very early depending. Also Drybear casts the Sunday EU Hirez tournament, and because of his location he wakes up very early in the morning to bring you that excellent coverage.
We know that some paople can be annoyed by not being picked, but we try to be fair. The 96 people are chosen at random using a random number generator, so we hope this does not prevent you from trying to join the next event. Your comments and suggestions are welcome in the comment section of this article.
Have a great rest of the weekend everybody!
