    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.

    Nah, the only hard thing about him is that the skill shots have a rather small radius for all of his skills, but if all the skillshots hit he's just ridiculous. The fact that he is a adc with the speed of poseidon, has a stun comparable to most supports with no downsides (anhur's wall requirement for stun). Remember it's a stun, not a root or slow like other adcs. His damage is nothing to laugh at and he can burst pretty damned well with his ranged 3 and 1. Also has an escape.

    Like I said I would prefer he has less stun time or just move it into a root/cripple rather than a very long stun. The only real problem is that his early lane clear is almost comparable to chang'e. But coupled with a support, he could probably roam around at level 5 and gank with absurd efficiency and burst damage.

    I don't consider his lack of Ult to be a downside as he has access to 8 skills at any given time. Unlike Tyr there is no cooldown for stance switching.

    He hits like a truck with high damage and passive attack speed. He can gain back health if needed with passive lifesteal. But, worst of all is his incredible ability to escape. Jump skills are the most powerful defensive skills in the game, previously the only adc that had a jump was anhur, which is why he was favored as the best defensive adc (Neith's backflip can't jump over obstacles). Unlike Anhur he has passive attack speed, passive CDR, passive lifesteal if he is in melee stance, and a movement or attack steroid.

    I play in the Asian timezone though I play only like 2 matches a day at most since I hit 30 because of work.

    Anyway, the easiest god to start with is probably not an adc... Usually the team survives or dies by an ADC. Best to start off as a support so you get a general idea on how supporting works so if you ADC next time, you know the extent of the help you can get. Or just play a mage because of AOE.

    Also chang'e and nu wa are actually bad supports and better mages since their kit doesn't allow supporting as much as bursting or sustained damage. Sun Wukong or Hel would be much better choices as support since they have more skills in their kit than can save their counterparts but also dish out decent damage. Though Hel is usually a squishy powerhouse.

    Out of all the gods I've played he bo has I think the best bad-team-carry potential. If he gets fed early he alone can win the game.

    Anubis. You dont even have to be good at Anubis... a couple of early kills and you get to be super-roaming-instagib-powerhouse Anubis and carry all the bads.

    Ah... there's something really satisfying about getting kills with Ymir's autoattacks.

    A good Hebo is incredibly frustrating to play against.

It's just so much easier to land your whole skillset on multiple enemies now.
    Shes more accessible now for sure but a good bastet was going to 100-0 you before the rework anyway.

    I dont feel that helping more casual players do decent with her makes her OP.

    In the past it was a slow and painful 100-0 though. With that passive in place and the more assured hits, she can do it to squishies mid game with enough speed to activate her jump return and get out of the enemy's backline unscathed.

    Nemesis seriously needs to get nerfed. Retribution is ridiculous, heal, reflect and all the while she is free to do what she wants!

    Bastet is absolutely fine imo. Her whip radius was bugged, it will be fixed next patch.

    New god reveal is out. (Kumbakarna) Patch will come Monday maybe? donno.

    She is getting nerfed next week, slightly. Her Retribution is going to be modified eventually too.
