    Ask the Community Managers anything (Smite Related) V3

    Starting up a third thread as the second one passed 1,000 comments.

    Ask HirezAmanda and HirezSavvy your questions, maybe Ponpon may check in once in a while.

    • This thread is for Q&A, not discussion. If you want to have a discussion about a topic here, create a thread.
    • There is a three-question limit, listing more than three will result in them being ignored or removed by moderator.
    • The community managers are not Hirez Support, if you have an issue you must still submit a support ticket.

    • Be civil, if you are snarky with your questions or comments they will be removed from the thread.

    The thread is now open, here are the leftover questions.

    I've just noticed that in every single god lore he is referred by his original name, 'Apep'. Yet, he is a "jungle boss" in Clash, called 'Apophis'.

    Does that mean he will/can be added as Apep later on or it's just a... How to say it... Overlook in consistency?
    I still find it a waste if he will never be playable, since he is just a big name in Egyptian mythology, but well...

    Why is that "Official" bit listed as a separate subforum?

    Where is Nike at right now? She seems to have such a bland uninteresting kit yet was doing so well she got nerfed multiple times? Her damage is almost on the level of nox in terms of being confirmed. You sneeze on her when she uses rend and she's left without any real ability for damage afterwards. How is she performing now after everyone has seen her play?

    Why don't we every get a response from HiRez when we submit proof of player misconduct. Its always, 100% of the time, an automated response, followed by the closing of the ticket with no resolution. There's never any response of if any action is taken, whether they need any other information our if something is being investigated. Its just a auto response you get for every ticket and then its closed a few days/weeks later.

    Pon has recently started as systems designer and he’s already bringing a lot of the community feedback we’ve gathered to the design team and working towards solutions. So yes, those concerns are definitely on our radar - just keep in mind, these systems take a large amount of time, so many will come out in stages.

    I’ll pass this on and see if we can get it updated!

    He was actually named Apep internally for a bit - but after a lot of back and forth, we landing on Apophis.

    1. There definitely are plans to update the tutorial! We don’t have an exact timeline right now, but it’s relatively high on our list of priorities.

    2. There aren’t any plans to change level up bonuses right now.

    That’s great to hear Unfortunately, I don’t think we technically can turn it on for a MOTD without having the mode being downloaded from a patch. Now that’s not to say it won’t happen - We recently turned back on the Underworld Arena mode for SMITE’s Birthday, so nothing is impossible.

    For Morrigan's first ability, her stun. Why aren't the aspects of her other forms different from the main model? "The Morrigan begins combining the power from all three of her forms" when it's just clones of her base model?

    And minus the time consumption of that, why isn't the right side model 'flipped' so that it's symmetrical and the spear lines up with the targetter?

    Not really a question, because I know you cant answer much due to non-disclosure-agreements, but

    Thank you, thank you so much for finally putting in one of the gods I have been waiting for so much. <3
    Of course I know it isnt for me specifically, just, want to say "Thank you hirez" ;'3

    I cant wait to see Daji on the battle field <3

    I'll leave this show of gratitude because it's rare.

    But remember folks. Questions only.

    So, does that mean he is confirmed as "never be playable"?
    I know you can't say much about future god releases and stuff, but if you could say 'maybe' if once in a time he will be possibly considered as a playable god (primordial, well, doesn't really matter) or a 'no' as it is decided he will be only a camp, that would be appreciated.
