    Let's keep Apollo out of controlling the entire Hunter Meta. He can stay average.

    Thinking back on it, Apollo used to be the ultimate splitpusher or be able to rotate to team fights pretty dang well. When Jing Wei came out with her "lovely" passive, people just tossed Apollo to the wayside and I'm not sure if they remember he exists.

    Not to say he's top tier with heavyweights like Skadi, Jing still existing and I'm gonna assume Hachiman (I only played him alittle when he first came out but haven't actually loaded the game since so it's only guessing).

    Personally for me he always felt wonky in managing his passive as well as not exactly knowing how to build him since people give you flack for building attack speed when he has his passive.

    If X god isnt OP then it doesnt necessary mean he is UP, average is the way to be for any god and I think Apollo fits well in it.
    This feeling when your team is far behind and you have no prospects for late game but for some reason players still doesnt want to surrender - MOBA Cancer.

    maybe hes just a boring god and people will only play him if hes obviously op, so if he falls into "balanced" territory then they will pick a god they would rather play than the god that they "need" to play.

    his ult is what makes him... so... if you don't need or want a global ult then you don't need or want Apollo, and thats fine.

    Just cause you suck at Apollo doesn't make him bad.

    The meta atm just isn't kind to him.
    What do I put here now?

    It's mostly because he doesn't really have anything outstanding going for him anymore. No unique or worthwhile advantage. As stated, his backdooring capabilities have been crippled ever since Jing was released and Crusher reworked.

    So pretty much they need to give him something that gives him an edge again.

    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    You may think all gods have huge amounts of courage, but only xbalanque has the balls to use them as weapons.

    0.3 instead of 30% again.

    Artio has zero "skillshot skills" non of those abilities you can miss, and Artio is super safe / hard to kill so positioning is not one thing that she need to worry about
