    Yeah you don't wanna make money with this game do ya


    Yup. Loot boxes are really really bad. Smite is actually one of the biggest reasons im hoping for loot boxes to become illegal in the US. I WANT to spend money on this game, badly, but i want to buy the skins i want not gamble for them.

    You will get a lot of flak though, posting about this stuff on here and on reddit. there are a lot of people who have spent a lot of money on these scummy chests. These people know they are bad but are compelled by all the money they spent to defend them.

    Indeed those gambling loot boxes is a tactic they use to ensure you spend more money to earn what you desire. I really hope they ban it soon but I don't think will will anytime sooner than we want.

    Neith, Zeus? 2 of the most braindead gods, but you want ranked arena? Neither of those gods are picked in any ranked. They are just pubstomp gods.

    And that business model is so short sighted anyways.
    Yes a certain few people will spend a lot of money to get them before they disappear.

    But then the game lives on for another 5-10 years and they are missing out on the countless new players (or players that couldn't afford them back in the day. Like when they were still going to school) buying it.

    This is one of the major problems in smite. Getting skins you want with out the rest of the clutter. I can understand some of the events, but limited skins are time exclusive. Unlimited skins are a step in the right direction. If all limted skins became unlimited I would be fine with it.

    A lot of people resort to shady account buying to get those limited skins, it would be beneficial to Hi-rez and the players to make that money go toward them to develop new skins and patches. Rather than it goes to some shady 3rd party website.

    Let´s hope for this. I get it that people who buy them want to feel special and all, but cmon now, what´s more important? feeding snowflake feeling of exclusivity and being "special" and "unique" or actually supporting the lifespan of the game? I think the second option is the optimal one

    Edit: Don´t get me wrong, I have limited skins for my mains (dragon empress scylla and cursed king cern) but I wouldn´t mind those skins releasing as unlimited if it means people can buy them and support the game further (I play mostly heretic/hellscape cern and daisy despair scylla anyway)

    At this point it seems that only the Odyssey T5 skins are off limits.
    At least I haven't come across a chest or a bundle where they were present yet. Other skins that were previously limited has showed up in the daily bundle, like Venus Aphrodite and Ares Fernando.
    If this is the new approach I'm perfectly fine with it.

    Not exactly limited, but unavailable for purchase through Smite when they were first released.
    The Fernando skin was a gift for purchasing the founders pack (or something along those lines) in Paladins, for the mere sum of 20 bucks. I don't exactly remember how you obtained the Venus skin, but it was a similar deal, something about buying stuff for another game as well.
