    Game Mode thoughts

    Since I couldn't find anywhere to suggest or talk about the game modes, I'll put it here. Simply for this one thought;

    Larger Arena types. Like, 10v10 or even up to 20v20. I think it'd be interesting, chaotic, and fun.

    The big issue here is that, in some game modes, wait times can already be lengthy.

    Both in casual and in ranked. Ranked is worse by a far margin (I've heard of times exceeding 45 min to find a match).

    By increasing the number of players required it increases the wait times.

    I honestly feel that anything more than a 5v5 would be a mess and possibly unplayable.

    People complain that too much is going on in team fights as it is and that is just with 10 people max on the screen. With 20 or more...it would be far worse.

    And let us also not forget a key factor...connection.

    Smite has (as far as I am aware) a partial peer to peer connection for their game. What this means is there is a server (or servers) that host the game, but once you are in a match it will pull on personal connections (this is why more often than not players experience lag).

    Imagine lag that a normal player might experience in a match in Smite...now double that.

    There is also the fact that I doubt Hi-Rez ever planned to have more than 10 people in a match.

    We don't need a 10 vs 10. What we need is a Royal Rumble. A free-for-all. No allies. This map should be Japanese or Hindu themed.

    there is that as well. some of the game modes that exist now are pretty much avoided and we already lost one to the depths of not being popular enough.

    We need to slowly removing modes rather than creating new.

    i'm down with Joust getting 86'ed, honestly since the new version I try to stay away from it as much as possible.

    as for siege...keep that in for now. if not for the fans, for DoubleJ

    I mean he always says "I love me some Siege."
