    Hello,

    I would
    like to share with you my experience with this bad company.

    This is
    based on over 1 year time spent in SMITE and 2 years in other MOBA games. I
    have nothing to those games at all, but to company who is way too sensitive for
    players behaviour which unfortunatelly making community just worse.

    So Im the
    one of very rare and excint species of gamers, who are really need to spread
    true rewievs about any game they play. I know everything about game I currently
    play, I just must to know that!

    Ok, let’s
    back to Hi-rez, so I started playing 1 year ago in very early beta stage, I did
    2 accounts because I wanted to get “1st win bonus” on both of them, I
    had time so that wasnt problem to level them together. I hit lvl 30 very easy
    and then started problems. I found very major issue with matching system, which
    matched ME (pro and competitive) with very low levels and caused me to be
    “hero of the team”. If I couldnt win 1 vs 5, then match was 100% lost
    because other just were useless like minions.

    Naturally I
    was nervous and I tried teach my whole team what to buy and what to do, but
    they always reply like rebel period teenagers “Dont tell me what to do! Im
    adult!” So I started using more offensive words like “You idiot, Im
    just trying to help you and you do nothing to team, you are match
    destroyer” and after match they keep reporting me for
    “HARASSMENT” I got banned plenty of time because of that so I created
    3rd account because I found out that:

    lvl 6-20 -
    PERFECT MATCHING SYSTEM

    lvl 20-27 -
    HMMM OK, HAPPENS

    28-30 -
    UNBALANCED, UNFAIR MATCHING

    example of
    my team at lvl 30: lvl 10,11,13,11 and me lvl 30

    enemy team:
    lvl 19,20,23,13,18

    So again I
    got banned for “harassment” because I cant really stay calm while
    someone destroying whole matches and wasting my precious time for senseless
    things.

    Those all
    bans I got were tempolary until 2 days ago when I met one guy who insulted me
    and other druing whole match because no reason (really, because we were
    winning) and everything was fine, he probably was just in bad mood and after
    match when other reported him for “harassment” he told he dont care
    because he is friend of GM Hi-rezAlexander and we will be banned within 24
    hours. LOL this was exactly my team reaction for this and how surprised I was,
    while exactly near this time I got my 3rd account banned for 2 weeks…

    OVERALL:

    I spent 2
    years before SMITE in other MOBA games and I have never been banned there,
    community was random same as SMITE (casual + cometitive) and sometimes someone
    got rage but I repeat – NEVER seen someone banned for insulting or language,
    just for match griefing like leaving, afk, feeding etc. So where is the
    problem?

    HI-rez -
    this is problem!

    So Im
    leaving this game permanently because here is no place for competetive players
    like me, just for people who dont know how to play and they reporting everyone
    for “harassment” because u called him “stupid”.

    Bye, share
    this story with everyone if you can, because this is great game, but
    unfortunatelly developer is way too serious for harassment term.

    Take some advice from the Tribes Ascend and Global Agenda communities….

    Here is a very important tip for people spending money on Smite: Don’t do it. HiRez has a pretty bad track record with their games. Basically they release a new game, get as much money as they possibly can for the first year and then they stop supporting it the moment a new game comes along. They did it with GA and now they have done it with Tribes Ascend. TA was barely out a year before they started shifting everything to Smite and now they have stopped supporting the game entirely already. The same thing will happen to Smite once the next big game (GA2) comes out so I would think twice about spending a lot of money on this game.

    HiRez is one of the worst gaming companies I have ever seen.
