SMITE fans, if you haven’t been living under a rock you have more than likely heard of MLG NOLA, the first SMITE Xbox One LAN to hit the scene!

A new atmosphere takes over the SMITE Xbox Community as its first LAN kicks off with MLG NOLA!

As the MLG NOLA LAN quickly approaches, we took a moment to talk to our Xbox solo-laner, Derik “Dwurst” Wurst to find out more about him and to see what the team mentality is going into such a large event.

Going into the Fall Split, SMITE fans didn’t know exactly what they would see coming from Team Eager after a rough start in Weeks 1-4.

Over the past few months, the Smite Xbox One scene has been expanding, recently picking up MLG to host its own circuit.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome. SMITE Pro League Qualifiers Week 1: EU came to a close with  Trig eSports facing off against Panthera. Hosted by Ghandi and HiRez Bart, the action was both up close and personal.

CompLexity vs. Five Angry Men was the hype on both Twitter and Twitch in the days leading up to SPL Qualifiers Week 1. With tension building up around every corner, Hi-Rez Studios' Ghandi & F. enthusiastically led the stream.

Many of our questions have finally been answered in regards to Crowfall's pricing and other options pertaining to a USD value. ArtCraft released the following statement in their new Pricing FAQ.

It's that time of the year again! Wizard101 brings out Pack-A-Palooza, offering all packs with a 50% off discount! Now through February 8th, all packs far and wide are available including the Holiday Packs and Dragon's Hoard pack!

Over the past few days, SMITE has been having sale after sale. Two days ago I noticed that they were having a 50% off all Voice Packs sale and being me, I wanted to jump on this opportunity.

According to a tweet made by Crowfall's Art Lead, Dave Greco, the newly released Fae Assassin is now his bae - er I mean, girlfriend. Dave figured the wife wouldn't approve and Crowfall seconded that saying, "Yeah Dave, you might what to rethink that one." Dave, Dave, Dave... What a character lol.

The Fae Assassin has a brand new fancy archetype page which includes an in-game photo along with a back story and concept art.

I had a brother, once… for a few minutes. I think I was born first?
The Farewell Kiss is swift and painless. We are not monsters, after all. No one needs to suffer. 
Some mothers cry. Some plead for assistance. My mother did neither. 
For generations, this has been our practice. For generations, we have known peace. 
Men do not belong in the Riverlands…. not even the breeders. They are captured, they serve their purpose, and they are killed. Many treat their enemies less kindly, I think. 
Think of the worst tyrant in history. How many lives could have been saved – how many wars averted – by a sharp blade, at the moment of his birth? 
Why did I say HIS birth? 
You know why. When I asked you to think of a tyrant, no woman crossed your mind. One life, for many. Quite the bargain, yes? 
I say to you: the Hunger is not your enemy. Your enemy walks among you, charming and handsome, with a tongue full of lies.
 I don't know about all of you, but being of the male gender, I am pretty scared for my life. Then again, she says that many treat their enemies less kindly (or so she thinks) so maybe going out in that manner isn't too bad? For the Fae, man seems to be the enemy, the tyrant that they seek out to destroy.

We also have gotten a new look at her stats. Compared to the Legionnaire who is a Melee-DPS class, his statistics focus on Strength Dexterity, Spirit, and Intellect in that order.

If you look at that photo on the right side, it is a in-game shot of the Fae Assassin fighting the Hunger-infected Fall Gryphon. If you saw the Fall Gryphon concept art, it's amazing how well they brought it to life and replicated it to the t. If you look closer, you can tell that the castle has Malekai banners draped on it's walls. I'm willing to bet my crush coins that this Fae is part of the Malekai.

What are your thoughts on the newly announced Fae Assassin? What are your thoughts on her specs and how she was created in-game? Any opinion on her backstory and how they built her?

For the past eight years, Wizard101 has been my home away from home. It may sound silly how a video game can mean so much to an individual, but Wizard101 didn't only introduce me to the MMO world, it introduced me to one of the greatest communities of my life. 

I have been blogging about Wizard101 for over four years, touching on the many aspects and content the game has to offer. I am proud to be a Thaumaturge, learning the many spells the Ice School has to offer. I can typically be found playing on Realm Scarecrow, Area 1 under one of my various characters, all named Blaze Shadowhorn.

Currently I am level 72, questing in the jungle world of Zafaria alongside many of my friends. If you ever see me running through the streets of the Baobab Market, feel free to say hi and maybe we can go do a quest or two together. You never know who you'll run into throughout the vast Spiral.

I am one of the many fortunate players who got to experience SMITE in it's very early Beta stages. If I said it hasn't changed much, I would be saying nothing short of a lie.

Saying I was overjoyed when I first got word of ArtCraft Entertainment and their new MMO, Crowfall, would be an understatement. A "Throne War Simulator" MMO, what's that?
