    Default Smite [Discussion] God-themed MOBA

    I believe we had, at one time, a thread for Smite discussion. However, I have no idea where it's gone to.

    Smite is a free-to-play MOBA-type game with a theme of ancient mythology and gods from all around the world. Besides the neat theme, Smite is also a third-person MOBA, as opposed to over-the-top like most MOBA's are. Some people will argue that this means it takes more 'skill' than other MOBA's, I think it just makes it more fun for those of us that prefer WASD movement.


    (Please keep in mind that the game has received extensive updates to graphics and user interface since this video was posted)

    As of now, Smite is in open beta. This means anyone can make an account and download the game to play. There is also a $100,000 tournament in the works, I think.

    If you would like to add your name to the IGN list, just post here and I will add them as I see them. Feel free to PM me if you feel I am taking to long to add your name.

    Updates:
    1/30/2013 - Vulcan "The Smith of the Gods" has been added to the game. Read the full patch notes here.
    2/13/2013 - Neith "Weaver of Faith" has been added to the game. Read the full patch notes here.
    3/13/2013 - Aphrodite "The Goddess of Beauty" has been added to the game. Read the full patch notes here.
    3/28/2013 - Apollo "God of Music" has been added to the game. Read the full patch notes here.

    You can buy gods right away. Most gods cost 5,500 of the in-game currency, or 200 Gems. Or you can pay $20 or something like that to get all 30 of the pre-release gods.

    There was a thread about the game but it died out because people stopped playing. Honestly, I think it had an interesting concept but the execution of the game overall is just awful.

    You get points for pointing that out, the tutorial felt pretty bad.

    I'ma play Artemis and see how it is, then think about my next course of action for this game.

    His only real drawback is he is quite mana hungry but its pretty negligible as his kit lets him rush a trans without suffering for it.

    The only real problem with him is that ridiculous stun. The rest of his kit is pretty standard adc stuff coupled with the fact he has no ult so it makes up for it. Just that a stun with that cooldown shouldn't be in his kit.

    I think people are having the typical new God growing pains, compounded by the fact that he's a new hybrid. It takes some effort to really squeeze his abilities out fluidly/to their fullest potential when it's clinch time.

    I don't think he necessarily needs a nerf just a tweaking, he's got some areas that feel really weak to me.
