Today’s match against Spacestation exhibited the impeccable play that has put the Knights on track to be one of the SPL’s strongest teams in their inaugural season, with Emil “Emilzy” Nielsen and Kennet “Adapting” Ros making moves as the team’s standout players.
The SPL’s second-place position currently belongs to Dignitas, who defeated Spacestation 3-0 on Thursday. Unfortunately for Spacestation, their two opening-week losses put them underneath SK Gaming at the bottom end of the rankings. Most Smite Pro League teams have not yet seen competition this season, leaving them in the middle of the pack between this week’s winners and losers. Splyce, last year’s Smite World Championship winners, will not compete until week three.

“It’s just been incredible getting a chance to finally see what these teams have been waiting to show,” said analyst Melissa “TheBestTaco” Posada during today’s SPL stream.
