Hi-Rez has announced that they will be extending the Double XP/Favor/Worshippers until Wednesday, July 8. The weekend is being extended due to issues with SMITE.

Smite fans: Sorry for the issues today! We are extending the Double XP/Favor/Worshippers weekend until Wednesday at 05:00 Eastern!

It’s good that developers realized how players felt disappointed and made up to them by offering an extension. Something similar was recently done with Heroes of the Storm as well by Blizzard.
In other news, Hi-rez recently announced that SMITE will have Australian servers on release and during the open beta, that’s starting soon.
According to Andy Anderson, Xbox One Senior Producer, Hi-Rez Studios.
We’re delighted to offer SMITE communities the best possible experience on PC and now console, and we are impressed with the growth of the game on PC in Australia. We are pleased to support the release of SMITE on Xbox One with dedicated Australian servers from next week.
