    Is skil even supposted to matter in smite?

    Question is as simple as that.

    I find that most scenarios come down to basic calculations. It would make sense since the game is supposted to be team-oriented.
    But as of late the op god releases break away from this standard.

    So what's the answer really?

    Yes.

    Building in general is also a part of skill, as you have to realize the best way to counter-build and what items work best with you're respective God.

    Truth be told, most scenarios in-game come down to reaction time and accuracy.

    If you can't aim, you will fail. If you can't position, you will fail. If you lack situational awareness and team coordination, you will fail. Skill is what separates those who fall victim to these facts from those who do not.

    I often fall victim to myself, diving for one person knowing full well I'm going to die for it but deem them as "worth kills" just to let that ho know what's up even though I'm usually carrying my team 8+/3/5 and the guy i just killed was 0/5/10 so~

    Gotta love those last second Blinkers.

    I deeply respect their map awareness, positioning and reaction time, as that really takes a lot of skill.

    ... but man is it infuriating when you get gimped out of a kill you should have easily obtained.

    According to smite guru database over 70% of the games are a "faceroll" for one side or the other.
    That answers the question right there. Skill is meaningless, you will get grouped either with winners or losers most of the time and get a unearned win or loss.

    There will always be some imbalance in god choices, but there isn't anywhere near enough for skill to not matter at all.

    I strongly doubt Smite.guru sorts games by "faceroll", and even if something similar existed, 70% is a massive stretch. Proof?

    Yeah, but that just opens its own can of proverbial worms because only the best Geb's can make the phattest shield plays.

    If you don't think it takes skill to land Hou Yi ricochets, snipe people with Ra, 1v5 people with warriors and still be able to get 1 or 2 kills, know exactly where someone is going to step at exactly the right time as Terra, or to get Pentas with pretty much any assassin, then no, I guess not.
