    But idk there could be a character who takes lesser skill and dominates higher play.

The fact that you don't even know what this word means and/or how to use it so that it actually makes sense attests to your lack of credibility.
    It also means to enhance ones reputation despite the evidence to the contrary, which given the op has said on various occasions they are an expert player, for others to get on their level, that they are not interested in others opinions on the matters they post on a public forum yet still post routinely on AND are incredibly defensive of safeguarding their opinion on points to someone who requires validation of their opinions because they themselves believe themselves to be the be-all and end-all of all things intellectual and skill based in relation to the subject matter.

    Not that I believe for a second Ronan needs any assistance defending his opinion or grammer selection of the subject at hand, but I would guess given the context thats what was meant, as in the op, despite their protestations, thrives on affirming opinion. Otherwise, why get all defensive when yourself and Zav mocked their, apparently, self inflicted ban? Why belittle every (numerous) dissenting voice? Why blame a mod conspiracy and favouritism for an (apparently) self inflicted ban? All these point to self aggrandizement, a person who seeks to further their reputation based on a virtue that they present despite the evidence to the contrary.
    Smite is like a toolbox, there are many means to achieve your goals, plus its full of tools

    From the context of Keks rebuttal he was right, but from the context of my original post in which the word "aggrandize" was used you are right. So rejoice, both are right and I have yet to see any evidence to the contrary that would permit my assessment of the op being wrong.

    See there is a multitude of things wrong with this and your overall message.

    To start with you say that skill doesn't matter and then you proceed to say(at least most recently) that your team mates lack of skill greatly affected your game. Then you also say things like this quote, implying that the only real skillful things done in the game are things that would be hard for you(such as carrying a game with team mates lacking your skill level against opponents with higher skill than your own team mates apparently, stuff that some players actually manage to do by the way)

    I think it would be much more appropriate to state individual skill does not matter as much as overall team skill. I feel like this might be what you are attempting to state this whole time, but since you are so insistent that skill in general has no basis in the game it really doesn't come off that way. You are appearing to state that you felt you had more skill than the Freya, but that even though you were personally more skillful than that individual you still lost to her team. And this apparently upsets you and you feel that your superior skill should have been enough for you to win if the game were designed differently. Does that about sum things up?

    Yes.

    The simplest skill is knowing how to build each archetype of character.

    Another skill is knowing the map.

    Another skill is knowing when to use your abilities, either offensively or defensively.

    Another skill is just being able to synergize with your team mates.


    I think the only "luck based" thing in SMITE is the matchmaking and whether or not you get team mates that can play on your level (And your enemies level for that matter too)


    Why do you need 60 FPS? The human eye can only see 64 megabytes of RAM.

    No, i wasnt mad i was bored.
    I'm extremely bored of the linear routine smite is all about.

    You know smite is like this:

    Do this - check
    Now you can do this - check
    Now you can do this - check
    and so on

    The only way a game wraps up quickly enough and provide satisfying gameplay is if everything can be "checked out" but that isnt the case usually with bad teams. As they are not aware of objective goals nor how to process fights, hence the game becomes long delay garbage selection test. Which turns this game that already suffers from lack of fun to a slugest torture chamber.

    Anyways, i simply propesed it would be nice if i could fix the issues my teammates have, but that isnt possible after all smite is all about team-work, which is a bullshit concept coz that wont ever work.
    Hence why i say smite is a bad game, but meh.

    If that is the case you clearly won't like any MOBA since they are all about teamwork, and would likely prefer a tactical game as you find going down a checklist to be more fun. That is not a problem with smite, that is a personal preference in game genres.
