    Kali Ulting in spawn and getting a kill?

    Hi,

    As per title is this actually a thing? I only started playing Smite again recently, and in a game of Arena Kali killed me (Vulcan) on the battlefield, then as soon as i spawned she jumped into the spawn and out DPS'd the healing level of spawn and killed me again instantly. Is this a common thing? Are other characters able to do this or is Kali OP? Ive always been aware that if you run into spawn on low health and say Ymir uses glacial strike then it could catch you just as you run in and kill you. But a full health fresh respawn, no way should any character be able to enter the middle of your spawn area anyway, let alone be able to kill you there. This sort of thing WILL deter new players, and as a returning player has really reduced my interest in getting back into the game. I dont like the phrase but if intended then the Game is Broken.

    Thoughts are welcome

    Thanks

    It is possible, Kali is hyper-carry who have bad early game and very good late game. Nothing is broken with her.
    This feeling when your team is far behind and you have no prospects for late game but for some reason players still doesnt want surrender - MOBA Cancer.

    If you were behind on levels or in one of the MoTD on arena map where you start with max money it is possible.

    Thanks for responses peeps. So it just a mechanic that can be abused then? I still don't like it though!! I think that being able to be killed in your own spawn at full health by an enemy is nonsense. We actually had a leaver so were fighting 4 v 5 and I was the only person in spawn at the time is why there was no team fight. We actually were doing ok as 4 v 5 in the match but me being dead for 20s then another 10-15 after being killed instantly after I respawn certainly helped us lose quicker! For new/returning players moments like this are real turn offs.

    I have noticed a Kali in almost every game i have played since i picked up smite again, i generally prefer to play Tanks when i can - does she have a counter for late game?

    Cc is your only friend against Kali late game. Her ult, Destruction, or as I call it, "haha fuck you I'm unstoppable in my murder storm" is for a lot of people one of the most broken things in Smite. One of the others is Kalis regenerative capability from her passive, which is why you need cc and lots of it when she leaps in. People mistakingly try to run. Bad idea. Chain that cc and murder. If you're solo queuing, best hope for your teammates to have enough brain power to toast bread.

    Yeah Solo queue im afraid. I play on PS4 and there is hardly ever anyone on voice chat so it makes getting the help when you need it tough (using the quick chat options aren't great for quick coordination!). Thanks for the advice

    Technically yes.

    In practice, only really abusable by Kali because of her ult making her unable to die. Since, being in the enemies fountain does a CRAPTON of damage to you.

    You'll often see YOLO Thanatos executes on people in fountain and die like immediately after to the fountain damage.

    Anyone else kind of struggles to deal damage fast enough to kill someone in fountain before they die (Outside of certain ults that can go through walls and such. But they need a significant level difference to reliably kill someone)
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    If you really want to abuse an ult, you stand in spawn on Arena as Awilix, wait for someone to get knocked into the air and then use your ult. Dragging them into your fountain instantly killing them pretty much. Its a free kill. I dont do it often but every once in a while after I spawn I get the chance to pull it off and it feels great for like the 3 second rush you get and you cant stop laughing XD

    It's not too bad I guess if it is rare occurrence and 1 or 2 hero's are only able to do it. I suppose it is more likely in arena than other modes also, but I still don't like it though! I've yet to play conquest since I started playing again, How does kali fair as a jungle, does she get a lot of play? I can see her dominating late game if she can level quick enough.
