Hi HiRez,

I've been meaning to write you a letter for a long time now, so here it is.

First off, thank you for making such a fun, engaging game! I've been playing since season 2 and Smite is by far my favorite game of the last several years. I play every game mode, watch the Smite world championships, watch smite videos/streams, and get my friends to play it.

That being said, there are several issues I'd like to share with you that really bother me.

1. Why are 92% of all the human gods white (default white skin or majority white alternative skins). You have gods from cultures all over the world, but you've whitewashed them all to appeal to your white boy fan base. If you're going to have gods from all over the world, please honor the culture you're trying to represent by not whitewashing it.

2. Where are the gods from the African pantheons? You have pantheons from South Africa, Europe & Asia but none from Africa or Australia. It would be great to see all cultures represented.

3. If you're going to make every female god have MASSIVE unrealistic breasts, please give the male gods giant DICKS. Hyper-sexualizing women for men's pleasure has long been a standard in the video game industry, but that doesn't make it a good choice. None of the kick-ass warrior goddesses in Smite need giant boobs to look good or be good, but it does contribute to the unrealistic view of women's bodies that so many young people have these days. It would be great to see a video game maker actually care for once, and work towards making our culture a healthier place regarding body image and the way we treat women.

4. I don't know why you made such a drastic change to the UI this latest patch, but please change it back. It's confusing, looks awful and is NOT user friendly.


A longtime fan

Ps. If you're a white boy who's butthurt about my letter, too bad. There are a million video games and porno's featuring white girls with big tits that you can go jerk off to. The world doesn't need more of that, and this game can and should do better.
