    Oh lord, if Morrigan or Su Daji are Erlang Shen levels of "quality", I'm going to quit Smite in protest.

    He's right, though. The game would be better off if Fish wasn't working on it; though I'm of the mind that the guy should just be banished to Paladins.

    I would like the first god to be Balor... not because of WWE I swear. It's because a Giant Demon who unleashes destruction when opening his eye is awesome.

    Pfffft, I say we get Arianrhod first. It'd be fun seeing what they come up for a god who uses the moon like a spinning wheel.

    It'd be good for the game's health if you ask me. Fish's gods have either suffered reworks or periods of being nerfed into uselessness before being buffed back, along with recycling mechanics in the game that already exist.
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    As someone who started playing Smite rather recently, can someone explain (and please, actually EXPLAIN) the disdain towards Fish?
    AFAIK the gods he's supposedly responsible for are Ravana, Xing Tian, Chiron, Susanoo, Raijin and Erlang Shen.

    Ravana I tried my hands on for a while, I'm aware that he worked a bit differently before and I'd dub his kit the least functional of the above...and by that I mean he doesn't work at all for me.

    Xing Tian isn't my kind of guardian (and from the background of the god I'd rather have made him a warrior) but I actually find him rather on the interesting side if nothing else.

    Chiron likewise is a breath of fresh air within the hunter line-up and if Ullr wouldn't exist I'd still play him. Unusual to play for a hunter, yes, but that's kind of the point.

    Susanoo....*looks to his avatar*. Yeah, I guess you can figure out my stance towards that god. And having both played AS him as well as AGAINST him sufficient times I honestly can't tell where the whole "OP"-bitching comes from. I never found him any harder to deal with than most other assassins. (And that holds true for his release-, supposed "nerfed" and current state)

    Raijin is pretty much the same as Xing Tian. Very interesting kit but I simply have no synergy with that kit.

    Erlang I actually played for a while and my opinion on him is pretty much what Kek said about him: Can be quite fun, but he's truly Chinese...by stealing other gods' technolo- erm, abilities. (And there goes my progressive merit badge)

    I list that all to showcase that yeah...I honestly do not get the apparent disdain for that particular developer. Maybe I'm missing something, maybe it's something that happened before I started playing (Which was around the time that "Escape the Underworld"-event was ending) maybe it's something you only get when you play Conquest (which I don't do 'cause I'm so sick of the standard MOBA-map) but I don't get it.

    And to clarify in advance, I'm not defending the guy either. I genuinely am simply curious since despite me being rather peripherally invested in the game's community I heard of the "Fish-situation" and yet I don't see much that would qualify such a reaction.
    The general "Ugh, Hi-Rez sux 'cause shit balancing" I get, that's just gaming "communities" but if a specific guy gets singled out...that usually requires something specific to happen.

    From someone who initially didn't get the hate either, lemme put it in simplest terms: Fish isn't original.

    With an Ajax god or a Scott god, you've got all these new abilities and even new mechanics that really make the god add something to the game. With a Fish god, you'll maybe see 2 or 3 aspects of the kit that are kinda new, while the rest is either generic or outright rips off something from another god's kit. For example, Chiron is basically Zeus with an escape. His 1 is a generic AoE, his 2 is Zeus's Detonate except simpler, and his 3 is Vamana's Clear the Path except he can use basic attacks.

    Heh, didn't realize that. Probably because I simply compared him to other hunters.

    Ok, so we have the broken (Ravana), the generic (Chiron, Erlang) and the at least somewhat original (Xing, Rai, Susan) - using somewhat here because just as with Chiron it's very possible I just don't realize the generic with those three. Not an impressive track record, I admit, puts him in the field of mediocre designer with the occasional spark. So I can certainly understand a certain "Meh"-attitude towards him.

    Have to admit though, in my book, that doesn't quite justify the level of vitriol I see towards him, although that might just be the usual hyperbolic effect of the web.

    Sorry, if it seems like I'm obsessing over this, it's just that in my experience, if you're a game designer and people know you specifically (and by name) you either have a gimmick (Cliff Bleszinski) or you have the uncanny ability to leave nothing but disaster in your wake (Greg Street). Fish seems too "bland" to attract that kind of attention.
