    Racing event... was it even playtested?

    Random RNG placement despite where you finish at is happening over 50% of the time.

    I've had 8th place given to me when finishing 2nd, 3rd, 3rd again... often there will be shuffles in the middle of the lineup.

    Wtf hirez, why was this released?

    1st is never bugged.. got 1st last few games with no issues. I remember the phrase "If you're not first, you're last" which def hits home when they bump you from 2nd to 8th lol

    Yeah. The problems are many. And I see a lot of posts where the community has become highly critical (in a negative way) towards this racing game mode... Can't say it was a surprise.

    The racing mode is currently one of the most rushed and low quality features of SMITE.

    i think the biggest irony is how it was hyped as all fuck when first announced and even more hyped when seen
    another reason giving in to hype is not always the best X3

    Also, it's pretty much pointless to play it if you didn't buy into it. I got second place in the gamemode, but I only got 11 favor to show for it.

    that was my very first complaint with that mode
    now im not against it really, but when a game mode is only temporary making it for only peeps with bundles basically is pretty.....erm, shitty?

    Pretty much this, I was excited for the CTF mode, but once I learned that you gain nothing unless you pay 750+Gems for it I just stopped playing all together.

    How can you guys bitch about this? You don't have to pay a dime to play the mode which is just something fun on the side. You want a full on Mario Kart game for free? Enjoy it for what it is- A fun side game mode.

    There are tiny issues but I don't expect a perfect in-depth game for free.
    HirezAmanda is ridiculous.

    Because this mode if a fucking joke, sure its something "unique" but that doesnt make it good.
    Look at virtually any other MOBA out there and see the events and how good they are.

    I like the game, but I'm not gonna ride Hi-Rez's dick out of my fanboyism.
