    SMITE: Casual Draft

    Hello there fellow Gods and Goddesses!

    So i've been exploring the deepest darkest places of the interweb and i came across a certain game which has a casual draft mode. Wouldn't this be good experience for newer SMITE players who want to enjoy the competitive draft experience while going levelup?

    How would this work?
    It would be just like Ranked Conquest, but then casual. You que, after que you come into a match, you have a ban phase and a draft-pick phase. This would be absolutely great for people to get more experience into the ranked system and would stimulate the ranked scene within SMITE. I would recommend setting some limits to joining this que. Have 20/30 gods owned. Something like that, so they have always something to play. Or be level 10/15/20. Or both. Let me know what you guys think!

    Competitive and draft ques!
    Also, would it be a good idea to give your role preferences before queing? ADC, Support, Midlane, Jungle and Sololane. They'd have to make an' autofill system and everyone get's filled into ( hopefully ) one of their requested roles. They can still change with eachother while in lobby by communicating. This could look to improve the fun, but also would take the risk of people getting put in roles they despise. Again, let me know what you think!

    I am super hyped for Season 5 and i'm hoping Ranked/Conquest will see a few great and awesome changes! The latest patches have been amazing one by one and i'm glad SMITE is stepping up their game! (Pun intended, sue me.)

    Kind regards,

    Princ3iples

    I wish they would replace Blind Pick Conquest with just Draft Casual Conquest

    IMO They should do both. More variations. Why do you prefer draft?

    HiRez cant afford to split Conquest community that much if they had as much players as LoL then they could afford it as to why i prefer Draft is becuz of the bans and you cant have mirror lane

    Very true. But imo the draft pick verison would also stimulate the ranked scene because people get used to it. What do you think about point 2 tho?

    I think that ill play whatever role is the lowest queue and take whatever character I wanted into that role and 1 of the 4 other dudes will flip the fuck out like they normally do and I won't really notice much of a difference between the current system and the one you proposed.

    the issue is people don't want to play guardian/support. I suggest they work on fixing why people don't want to play it rather than working on forcing people into roles they have no desire to play. 3 lanes and 5 roles. Of the 3 lanes and 5 roles possible there is only 1 role that has common recruitment problems. Fix that and you won't need your #2.

    Imagine S5 Conquest with falling off/sliding/pushing by wind and lava mechanics, that would be awesome.

    I've wanted any form of non blind/mirror matches forever. the whole concept blew my mind coming from dota 2.

    BUT then u run into the ppl who wait till the last second to pick soo they can counter pick or not let the enemy know who they r picking.

    I would enjoy sumthing like random conquest tho lol but maybe not full team random like assault maybe like randomize each class. sooo if ur under mage there's a random mage button, etc. also maybe just throwing it out there to give a gold bonus to sumone who random roles, entire god pool tho not class specific.

    But draft pick means top elo gets their first pick of role right?

    Meh.

    The only reason I play any Conquest at all is that I can almost guarantee myself to be mid as Scylla. XD.
