    Voodoo Pantheon! Yay or Nay?

    just trying to see the consensus regarding the inclusion of the upcoming pantheon. vote for what you feel is right. go ahead and right a comment too if you feel the need for it.

    personally, I will always welcome more pantheons, because that just means more themes to explore. on the other hand, I feel that there are more prominent pantheons that deserve this spot more than Voodoo. more so, if Voodoo is already included, I feel like it should be part of something bigger, rather than a collection of gods in of itself in the game.

    It's too young, historically. The OG Yoruba pantheon would be a more thematically-appropriate choice.

    I like it to be a bit deeper in the branches of human history. That's the appeal.

    In a perfect world, I'd rather have Bantu or Yoruba. But that'll do for an African pantheon, so yay.

    Besides, being modern is something novel, I think it can be quite cool.

    don't let your hopes down. there might still be a large-scale African pantheon in the future. I mean, this year apparently we'll be getting 2 pantheons instead of one. that's a big surprise, as I'm sure some people thought that there might not even be a new pantheon this year at all. also, Voodoo isn't just african; it also has its roots in the Caribbeans... apparently.

    I guess Vulcan won't be the only black guy in Smite anymore

    I think that, in truth, people aren't actually dismayed over the inclusion of the Voodoo pantheon as what it is, but rather that it came this early into the game in favor of more demanded and/or prominent pantheons such as Mesopotamian and Native American, among others. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have a problem with a Voodoo pantheon if it came much later.

    I'm not opposed to Vadou getting included, but it's too soon. the Slavic pantheon bothers me more though because like the Roman Pantheon many of their big deities are just adaptations of Artemis Apollo Aphrodite etc etc.

    Overall, I think the Shinto and Celtic Pantheons should've had at least 8-10 gods apiece before introducing a more prominent pantheon at the end of S5's second split. Babylonian being my first pick, if not going into Angels and Demons. At the very least we need a Greek warrior other than Nike, I was disappointed Cerberus was a Guardian.

    I like the idea of a slavic pantheon but Voodoo seems a bit odd for me. IK hirez said they don't care but I'd like the see Slavic (not out yet but you get the point.) and Celtic a bit more fleshed out before another one rolls in.

    Ehhhh... I'd have prefered an ancient African pantheon. I mean, possibly lots of those will be amalgamed into this Vodoo thing, but it's a rather underwhelming choice.

    And personaly still waiting for Polynesian pantheon.
