    Should be alright, Goodwill really only effects your favor and possibly worshiper gain. However, new patches usually do draw everyone back in again, meaning more fleeting derpbags for a time.

I would love to come across somebody really excellent as geb because his skills look great and I am actually fond of his character model.

    Keep in mind I ONLY play arena. I don't really like other modes, but I haven't given them a shot yet. I love the raw pvp aspect of arena despite minions being such a huge part. If anybody wants to add me my IGN is nostalgik. I'm level 18 almost 19. I usually play assassin type classes mainly kali(4)/loki(2).
    Yeah. You wont face too many people who are good with the God when it first comes out. Especially in Arena, Arena will just punch anyone who can't work together/protect themselves in the face and it doesn't help when the pinnacle support is some guy trying out the new God and failing horribly lol. First match I played, someone picked Geb and announced "I'm going damage", he didn't do bad though, something like 9/2. (Then again I did 17/0 with Cupid, felt like we got matched against a group of 15~20's :x)

    The shield is pretty amazing, I can't really say much about your ability to chew through it since Kali can be such a beast especially if you're decent/good. That and it also depends on the Geb, how much health he's getting, etc. I still need to play more games, mostly seen streams of the new patch.

    How are the new gods? Especially Fenrir, i like his design, though i've always imagined him as more of a direwolf than a werewolf o-o
    He pretty much turns into a humongous dire wolf when he ults. And yeah, if Fenrir was your latest God you're in for a surprise at the rest + the reworked Gods.

    Lots of people were against werewolf Fenrir so he's kind of a compromise, he moves on all 4's when he's walking around.

    Also, Fenrir can be pretty good, he has 2 leaps (1 short one built into an attack and 1 longer one) and his ultimate is also a great escape, pretty friendly for new/revisiting peeps. Though, like mentioned before, since you need to get in close there's some degree of danger, just get out if you can't handle it and avoid fighting larger groups. Also the effect Cripple (prevents you from using abilities with leaps/dashes) can ruin his life, so beware Ares chains/Pos whirlpool/Cupid ult/Artemis traps and possibly some others I'm forgetting.

    It's amazing how many players don't know how to play Arena properly

    Yeah, there's pit falls even when they do... I've been in games where one guy goes to contest right camps, 2 go to mob speed+dmg and the other 2 go the traditional mana+dmg and just bungle the entire thing from the get go. I firmly believe a lot of these people aren't that bad, but people have very different plans of attack that end up clashing.

    There's definitely a supple supply of morons, though.

    Noobs will be noobs. I'm pretty noob sometimes. Assault is pretty fun though.

    I have yet to experience that (luckily) but my biggest peeve so far is when teams just focus on killing the enemy and letting the minions walk freely into out portal (losing us a lot of points), I guess a lot of players go in to arena thinking it's like Arena in WoW or Team Death Match in a FPS which I can understand to a degree.

    Yea the new mode only punishes teams that don't know what they're doing further. Loving the speed on Geb's rollout for interrupting uncontested Manticores seconds before they walk into my portal.

    If you look at Geb's shoulders and think of them as his hands it looks like he is giving you the finger with both hands.

    Yeah, It's especially annoying when they run right past the wave and can't even bother to lead them to the spawning friendly wave.
