History

Pre Launch

SK Gaming was the first major organization to acquire a SMITE team, first acquiring a team in 2012, during the game's closed beta. Accomplishing excellent results in online play, the team was able to continue that success in their first major LAN when they took 2nd at the Gamescom 2013 Invitational, narrowly losing to COGnitive EU 2-1 in a best-of-3 grand finals. In November, the team hit a standstill when team captain, Psiyo, decided to step down from his leadership role.[1] The team decided to leave the organization, and started their own team, Azzur.

After a rough regular season, the team was forced into the EU Wildcards, from which they qualified with a first-place finish to the Regional Championship. At the Regional Championship, SK Gaming finished second and qualified for the SMITE World Championship 2015.

The team went on to beat both We Love Bacon from Brazil, and COGnitive Red to advance to the SWC semifinals. before falling to Titan eSports and then COGnitive Red, both with 0-2 records.
