    Why limit god choices though?

    If Hi-Rez come up with cool and unique designs for mythological figures from outside their original (Or rather, previous) pantheons, why not have them in game?

    It's not as if a new pantheon being added somehow precludes previous pantheons from getting god releases, it merely opens up Hi-Rez's options for character designs, especially since unlike other MOBA's that are focused on original character designs Smite is restricted to only being able to create a character around an established mythological figure.
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    Because there are more important spots to fill, we don't even have the really top gods in the egyptian pantheon and in the hindu.
    Besides, this is a game based on gods and demigods, not mythological creatures.

    HR should add characters to the game based on how much they can add to it, not based on how famous or religiously significant some characters are.

    Right, because we have no mythological creatures like dragons, spider thots, demons, hellhounds, centaurs, dwarves, fox girls, wargs, kappas, gorgons, squirrels, sea monsters, monkeys, or jotnar. Absolutely none at all.

    How does a new pantheon preclude that though?

    I mean, if they didn't release Broken Samedi and Pele, they could have very well released other "Minor" deities from already established pantheons.

    Also, I don't know about you, but when I'm in game, I care most about how the god plays rather than how noteworthy they are in the lore. I'd much rather they implement those "Major" deities when they feel they have a cool and fun kit that suits them, rather than adding them in for having them in the games sake.

    Like, fun kits are way better than bland kits that people only give a damn about if they're overtuned (See: Cernunnos. He was talk of the town when he was OP, but when he got balanced like no-one plays him because his kit is just dull and feels more like they just went through a checklist of what makes a Hunter "Good" rather than making a cohesive kit around his lore)

    Besides, this is a game based on gods and demigods, not mythological creatures.
    Well, ignoring the fact that a large number of the "Gods" we actually have in game are not actual gods.

    Note that I said mythological figures not creatures. Figures includes humanoids such as gods as well as mortals that are noteworthy (Such as mortals that were cursed by gods like Arachne and Medusa or ones that died but it didn't take like Guan Yu, Xing Tian and Jing Wei)
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    You have absolutely no idea on what you are talking about. All four have some of the most wild gods in all pantheons, especially slavic, nightmare fuel. To say a cultures gods suck is to say the cultures themselves suck. Get off your throne.

    While i would love to see a few members of the Sefirot and the four princes of Hell, i'd prefer they get the Shinto and Celtic rosters up to about 10 before we see a new "big" pantheon. As for why we're still missing heavy hitters from the likes of Egyptian and Hindu, is they're at the point of "how can we add another Thunder god and keep it fresh?" They can of course come up with something, but they want to be creative first.

    The problem with that interpretation of demon classification is that it comes from LaVeyan Satanism, which wasn't supposed to be taken literally as many other religions are.

    Lemme just settle this argument with a concrete verdict: There's never enough pantheons; there's never enough gods.


    Having more pantheons is always great, and all gods are welcome as well if they meet the criteria, as long as they're not extremely controversial that they could instigate riots or worse, have someone burn your car.



    The criteria being that they are associated with mythology or religion (since some gods have actually existed once, namely Guan Yu), and that they are a unique entity, rather than a species.



    And it doesn't matter how much lore a god has as long as have just enough to make them into a playable character.

    Personally, as a fairly devoted Christian, I would LOVE for some of the hosts of heaven and hell as characters in smite. There are mentions of the seraphim and beasts of the land and sea, with the demonic princes as well. Slightly 'unofficial', you have solomons book of demons as well.
