    Smite is great. Satisfies all my moba needs.

    Infinite Crisis is pure fan service. If you want the isometric style youre better off sticking with LoL or giving Dawngate a try.

    Smite. Infinite Crisis is a steaming pile of horse shit.

    They're both really shitty games. Then again I just feel like every "moba" game is just shit nowadays. Smite is pretty god awful even for a moba and IC is literally just fanservice at its worst, not to mention it ripped off League's map and game mode with just adding "environment destruction"

    SMITE artwork is more appealing. But I only play LoL. If you liked SMITE but don't want to play it, you could try Super Monday Night Combat or Cyphers (foreign) or ArcheBlade.

    Infinite Crisis is literally just a DC Universe reskin of League's Dominion game type. They copy the map layout exactly, right down to brush placement, and the characters' kits are pretty much entirely uninspired ripoffs of various League champions. It also suffers from god awful input lag that makes the game pretty much unplayable.

    Smite is pretty good. It's a fresh take on the MOBA genre, and it's much faster paced and action-oriented than other games in the genre. It's also quite visually impressive and well-optimized, and it has quite a large variety of game modes to choose from compared to other MOBAs. The only major flaw the game has is that HiRez's balance team isn't the greatest. There are some gods who have been permanent pick-or-ban in ranked for months without receiving any nerfs *coughzeuscough* while they nerf pubstompers and low-tier gods into the ground *cougharachne* *coughcupidcough*.

    Really? When beta came out it was Hades and Artemis that were god-tier. I thought Bastet was sexy.

    Hades is trash tier, Zeus received some buffs a long time ago and now he is banned pretty much 24/7.

    Ignore the haters. I CB'd all 3. Despite obvious fanservice to DC multi-verse IC is a decent moba. And it isn't turbines first moba either. They made guardians of middle earth which is the only moba worth playing on the consoles. Intill recently all characters were quite diverse and useful but a recent balance patch nerfed the support skills of a few popular supports by a lot. Item system is interesting and so is its take on the rune system of lol/gome.

    Smite is a great game with good support from it's devs. Decent moba decent paced 3rd person action game. It's got all the niche's you'd think a 3rd person moba would have without anything too lousy (e.g multiple terrian elevations). It's a good game but it might be hard for you to get into it as the skill cap is quite high for competitive gamers.

    Dawngate. Well i dunno if NDA is dropped but I can tell you it's quality and not a sham lol clone despite similar looks. There's already a good number of really unique "shapers" to choose from. It's nowhere near finished but damn this is a moba too look out for.

    *edit* oh and IC isn't a 2 lane dom map only. There's traditional 3 lane and a big jungle 2 lane map along with the dom map gotham heights.

    choose smite

    i've played just about every other moba and the controls and animations are just dull and sluggish and just plain awkward

    the only ones that feel right are Dota and League - dota being better.

    so if i had to choose between smite and IC i'd go with smite - i really enjoyed it - it is different and refresher but the new community ruins pubbing

    Sorry but have you actually played IC?
    How is Gotham Divided like Summoner's Rift?
    I don't see Baron, I don't see a Dragon, I don't see the map being diagonal, I don't see Flash and Ignite being the only spells ever used.
    Every moba has the same game mode.

    Again, have you actually played IC?
    Tell me Gotham Divided is a rip off of Summoner's Rift.
    It's not like the kits in LOL are the most original kits ever made in a MOBA, Blitcrank = Pudge etc. It's not a valid complaint.

    I didn't say it was a ripoff of Summoner's Rift. I said it's a ripoff of Dominion, which is on the Crystal Scar map. And yes, it is a valid complaint; only a very small handful of champs in League are heavily based off of DotA heroes. For the most part, champion kits in League are original ideas. From what I've seen and played of IC, I haven't seen very many abilities that are unique to the game, and the ones that are are really uninspired and boring.

    I've played enough of the game to know it was garbage and uninstalled it.

    I dunno when you played & deleted IC. I can only guess it was when it was only 8 heros & unpolished GH to play with. But now theres 3 maps and just under 30 champions now. I'm not saying all champions are wholly unique. I don't think anyone offered that point for IC. There is diversity even if all the batmen renditions share related kits(batarang/dash). Anyway as somebody that didn't like the game & play it much before OB yet alone release how can you call yourself a good judge.

    Also Dawngate is where there's a plethora of refreshing new idea's that I'm not sure I can discuss due to NDA.

    Also dota 2 is obviously a great game. I don't think the TC wanted people to contest smite or IC with dota 2 as its not a competition. Maybe he a pub that just wants a lil break from dota.
