    Why Smite will never be a good game.

    Few of the main reasons, going to mention just a few:
    1. An option to surrender at 10 minute mark.
    2. Forgiving penalty for repeatedly leaving games. You didn't like the game or etc. you leave and come back an hour later or smth.

    Opened my match history window and I see 17 games total out of which only 2 ever hit the 20 minute mark and even then those didn't go long past that. It's ridiculous.

    Why Smite will never be a good game: because it will not go down from being EXCELLENT.

    1. Having a way out when a match is hopeless is a flaw?
    2. The penalty gets longer each time you leave. I think there's a point at which you get outright banned, but don't quote me on that.

    You abuse the forgiving penalty for leaving over and over again (personal experience) and then you can jump and abuse the early surrender system which most of the time...

    After roughly -40 hours in the game, I highly doubt you can judge the game on being successful. Since june of 2012 the game has grown to 20 million unique users across 3 platforms, myself being one of them since the beginning. Its been a "good" game far longer than you think.

    Surrendering at 10 is a valid option. Sometimes with someone dcing it drops to 5. Most of my games infact last longer than 30-40 minutes. Once you hit 30 and play conquest significantly youll see this. The other modes simply are shorter

    Why we don't care.
    A) You're level 19(if your name here is the same as your Smite name account).
    B)You have a Cupid head with 6 posts .
    C)Your arguments are bad, the surrender hugely helps to end a game when you have leavers or if your team is doing really bad or has no hope of winning.
    D)The forgiving penality is useful, maybe there's something you need to do that is more important than a video game match(this is madness) and after it's done you still want to play some games.
    My only wish, a buff Xbalanque

    Below level 30, games consist of noobs, trolls and smurfs. Which one are you?

    The surrender option is actually a bless.
    Too many times in game with no surrender option, a onesided game just turn into a massive spawn-camp, with no interest from the leading team to finish the match.
    So being capable to put an end on a match going to be nothing more than an humiliating chore is a great thing.

    Hi Rez is a really kind company. They give out lots of gems and are really forgiving. I would like them to be more strict, especially on their ranked mode. (If a team all loses 6 tp because someone left, the leaver should take additional TP loss equal to all of the team's loss.)

    The balance is the worst part. There are a set group of gods in every match because they're overpowered as hell.
