    That completely defeats the purpose of his entire passive. Why would you want that? What I'd like to see is him get full exp/gold for a god kill even though it gives him an assist.

    You said it yourself, people are kill-focused. That's why barely anyone actually goes support. If they do, they often pick a Warrior and build them for damage...

    It's also why it's so hard for me to get the motivation to play the game at the moment... Having to play support EVERY game (After insta-selecting a god I'd like to play and waiting around for other people to select gods to form a team) when it's your least favourite role (Even Freywin is marginally more enjoyable than playing support for me) is so depressing.
    Yup I know that feeling. Nothing worse than getting people who instalock hunter/assassin/mage, then get to watch as they don't follow in, dive relentlessly with a full enemy team looking at them, position themselves with the equivocal sense of a drunk person in minefield, and you discover the ONLY thing they can do with any degree of efficacy is spam a few emotes or choice phrases.

    Sadly the flip side is when you get an instalock guardian, all too often you get John Rambo who thinks "hurr durrr I'm a fuckin' tank yeehaw!" and it then transpires that the light you thought you saw at the end of the tunnel is actually a flamethrower.

    It doesn't defeat it. Because if he dealt the majority of it why should he be denied? His passive will consistently have him behind everyone in level AND money.

    What if someone took him solo lane, and he was defeating the enemy solo laner? He's got the damage for it, just not the sustain. Why should someone just getting close to him give them the kill for doing nothing?

    That would defeat the entire purpose of the passive, though. Maybe something like where he gets 3% increased gold regen per kill given to an ally, that can stack 5 times up to 15%, and lost on death?

    The big problem here is Ganesha not being able to get as much gold as other guardians possibly could. And honestly, with how his kit looks with that damage, 10% bonus damage, and CDs, he can be a very fearsome support that can easily nab a kill for himself.

    I'm maining Hel in Conquest exclusively because I want to live a hard life.

    Don't listen to me unless on days when I drink coffee. I'm a retard when my brain isn't chugging.

    Ganesha is for selfless people only. So yes, probably 1 % of Smite's player base is going to play him more than once, 0.01 % are going to main him.

    I just imagined this situation:

    Ganesha kills an enemy and did way more to accomplish that.
    His ADC next to him gets the kill.

    Rest of the team: "You rock!"
    ADC: "Thanks!"
    Ganesha: "You're welcome!"
    ADC: "Cancel that. I'm the greatest!"

    I'm always triggered when I secure a kill and it's just not appreciated! Playing guardians has the most downsides but I like them nevertheless.
