    The State of Apollo

    Hi guys. So, Apollo is probably the least talked about hunter nowadays. It was Ullr before but his tier 5 skin got people talking about him.

    Anyway, back to Apollo. He's the worst hunter for me to play. I just suck with him.
    Any Apollo whom I encounter in my matches suck as well that when I see him as an opponent I'm like "their adc is not a threat, I guess we can just goof off". Most of the time, I'm right.
    It's rare seeing him getting picked, even rarer seeing him do well.

    I know some of you guys claim he's doing well and even picked in SPL (hey their words, not mine)
    But what do you think of Apollo?

    I would agree with you. I see a Hatchiman, I think. Well shit.

    I see a Hou Yi I think just great. Gotta play around all that BS.

    Apollo never really scares me. Sometimes annoying at most to fight but never really difficult.

    Now I've seen some do well but they were fed. He really does nothing that better than any other hunter.

    Definitely not a top pick but so what?
    He is good, he is doing great damage compared to being safest adc on earth.

    I always liked apollo and i find him on of the more fun adc's.

    And just play more with him and get better.
    His mez has one of the biggest out play potentials..
    And even if you can't outplay just mez dash away ult and by the time he wakes you're in thr fountain.

    The guy has a kit that supports will trade a arm and a leg for. An passive fueled by pure boxing that makes him better at it. And is apart of one of the strongest classes in the game. Even if he is a meh hunter it still puts him leagues above the rest of the cast

    Thank you Uwilltap.

    Guys, instead of generalizing: "he does well yada yada", why don't we compare him to other hunters.
    I'm sorry, I just don't see this "he's leagues above the rest" argument.

    Let's compare him to other hunters.
    Cernunnos, Hachiman, Skadi, Izanami, Hou Yi and Rama are the current top picks for hunters now. Definitely Apollo is nowhere near any of their leagues.
    Anhur, Cupid, Jingwei and Medusa can do wreck havoc and Apollo is definitely not anywhere near them either.
    Now I know I said Artemis is my favorite food but she can do real damage if there's a noob on your team that feeds her and that happens quite a lot especially with Smite's matchmaking system. Her threat level compared to Apollo is much much more.

    There are only 4 other hunters that's near his league.
    Ullr - his difficulty level makes him unpopular but his damage is definitely better than Apollo. I don't get scared of random Ullrs unless I see that he's mastery level 10. That means my opponent knows what he's doing. Definitely pose a much bigger threat than Apollo.
    Xbalanque - I haven't compared their damage but his ulti is extremely useful. I'd rather fight Apollo over him if my objective is to win.
    Neith - the easiest hunter to play but there are several games where Neith does well. Much more than Apollo in fact. Her ulti guarantees she'll have at least 1 kill.
    Chiron - ok. Chiron is the only guy who has the same threat level as Apollo. However, I've seen more Chirons do well than Apollos.

    legit posts? like when he claims raijin takes aim and bellona's 2 being an escape? or was it discordia's bunnyhop being best escape in game? or its that hachiman is not a braindead god?

    when i see him making an actually point, i'll give him the props for it. he made none so far.

    and apollo is a lategame hunter in an early dominated meta. he is fine otherwise.
    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.
