    Hookers are people too.

    Yes i agree with you. I do not like how she looks in the game. And her kit sucks, but it's nice they added the paolao in her kit.

    I personally enjoy her kit. It does need work in a few areas, but it feels different and I like it.

    It's reflects my sentiment of taking a very interesting character and turning it in... that.

    • She's stripped from her deceptive personality in which she is subtle and manipulative in her malevolent behavior. In SMITE, she screams "HAHAHA" before pounding on enemies.
    • She is supposed to be seductive or alluring in appearance, movement, speech, and behavior. In the game, it's T and A as the main focus rather than a characteristic of aforementioned. In lore at least, she is multi-faceted and constantly acts differently. For example, as described in her myth...

      Daji looked like a piece of white spotless jade. Here face was as beautiful as the morning haze, her eyes were like ripples of autumn water, and her teeth were as bright as jade. She spoke sweetly, as if she were singing.

      [...]

      The executioners melted at her words. They stood fixed as if intoxicated; their bones softened, their muscles slackened and their arms became numb. Charmed by Daji, they only felt deep sympathy and great pity for her.
    • I dislike the hair choice for her, and it's not well modeled. There's dozens of classical Chinese hairstyles that are more pleasantly-looking for a supposed-seductive lady.
    • And she does not shapeshift in the game, at all. That's such a significant motif for her, but...

    Part of the problem that seems to haunt Da Ji is the same problem that haunts a few others, the time they used to make her. Da Ji was one of those gods where it seemed like they didn't take much time on her. More time went into animating the tails rather than fleshing out the rest of her, so in the end it just didn't come together right.

    On top of that I remember there being mention of a 'bone limit' to models, so the fact that she uses so many bones for her tails probably meant that the rest of her design suffered.

    It's kind of sad really, they could have done a lot with her. She came out okay personally, but it could have been much better.
