    4.7 Spoils: Crippling Depression Edition

    I feel like ass. Nothing actually interests me all of a sudden. I don't even feel like I'm still alive.

    http://smitedatamining.com/smite-4-7...tamining-daji/

    The important stuff:
    -Kuzenbo is getting a new skin; possibly his T2. Osiris may be getting a second skin. Sylvanus, Thoth, and Thanatos join the "getting new skins" club.
    -Virtually nothing new about Daji.
    -More beef on the dungeon adventure.
    -Something about discounts, I dunno.

    Thanatos, Erlang and Thoth could possibly get their T2 skins, I bet Osiris skins will be in a bundle of the kind "get one and get it's limited recolor"

    Hercules Knight Skin – 3rd Adventure bundle skin
    ... crap.
    A bad news for me and the plan of finally acquiring the Swashbuckler Skin.
    I can't buy the god pack because of the NEVER TO PLAY god list below.
    NEXT GOD TO BUY:
    In doubt: Ah Muzen Cab, Arachne, Awilix, Bakasura, Cernunnos, Fenrir, Hun Batz, Kali, Kuzembo, Morrigan, Nike, Raijin, Serqet, Sobek, Sun Wukong, Terra, Ullr, Vamana.
    NEVER BUY/PLAY: Amaterasu, Athena, Bacchus, Cupid, Freya, Hercules, Mercury, Ratatoskr, Tyr, Xbalanque, Xing Tian.
    Regret owning: Apollo, Bellona.

    I just hope Da Ji will not be a kawai-esque bullshit like her LoL counterpart. Also i hope she will have a fitting design like Ganesha not a lazy one like Cernunnos and Nike.

    Considering the already dreadful design of default Erlang Shen, the bar is already set extremely low for a T2 skin that's filled with cultural nuances. May the people--responsible for the terrible culture research and visual conception of that god--not repeat that process.



    And certainly not with Daji.

    Dude, you quoted the only person in the community that actually enjoy Erlang appearance.

    Nike has everything, except a lazy design.
    And Su daJi design is pretty much like Ahri.

    - Hydra Boss

    My scalie senses detect a new yet brief npc husband along with Apophis. That being said, fingers crossed it's a random one and not The Lernaean Hydra since I wouldn't want to see another possible playable character being made a boss.
    People actually look at signatures these days? Alright.

    Welcome to the lair of a mad British scalie. A pleasure to make thou's acquaintance!



    My most wished for Deities in Smite: There are literally too many to list without hitting a character limit so blame Kaios-0 for being a good buddy and teaching me about so many reptilian gods. He's too good of a husbando to me ;w;

    I'm quoting it for the sole purpose of you mentioning that Erlang Shen might get a T2 skin. That's the context. I'm not actually interested in your thoughts at this moment.

    Yeah...

    But really, just ignore me. I'm just taking every opportunity to rant about Erlang.

    Yeah Erlang Shen could indeed use some cultural adjustments i agree. But Nike also could. Because first of all she doesnt look ancient greek at all. They said that they wanted her to have some paladin look. The couldve made a paladin skin for her but not make her default a paladin.
    She looks more like a christian character, some angel or something but not an ancient greek goddess. Her amor looks medieval not ancient and also very WoW-ish.
    Cernunnos is also very WoW-ish even more than Nike. He is as i see him, a hybrid between the night elf druids and the night elf huntress from Warcraft 3. Sure they could have made a night elf skin but not serve us the night elf as default.

    Ganesha was better because he is very actively worshipped today. So the best way to have a nice god in smite is to still be worshipped. And suddenly the Abrahamic Pantheon idea does not look so bad anymore to me.
    But you know what? Cernunnos is still worshiped someshow by the Wicca religion. Sure by consulting some of his "believers' we could have had a better Cernunnos.

    There are still people who worship Thor, Odin, and the other Norse gods, too. Same with the Japanese and Chinese gods. There are probably still people out there who worship the Greek gods, too.
