    My first and last post

    I had a break from Smite for months, not because of the game itself, but because of how stupid and annoying some people are. Today was no exception. At least two times a day, you find these people who criticize every single thing you do, from the god you pick, to your item choices etc.

    So here's a news flash for those elitist people: NOBODY CARES! It's a goddamn game! I am seriously of thinking just saying absolutely nothing, since explaining why i picked the god or whatever item, just usually brings more flame. So easier to just mute the dumbasses or stay quiet. But hey, then they can complain about not communicating.

    So here are some things people have complained to me about: "Omg instalock..." Yeah, so? At least now you will know how to build the team around what i picked? If i picked a tank, pick something else, whining about it won't change it. I usually know what i want to play before the lobby, so why the hell wouldn't i pick that god? There's still 4 more people if you're so damn worried about your precious victory. And there are some general gods where it doesn't matter if you instalock: tanks and support for example as those you will always need. In a general team composition that is.

    I have even heard when i played Fenrir: "Okay Fenrir support." So nice when people decide for me. Yeah, completely forgot that support classes have all damage skills like Fenrir does...the logic of some people. I've even been criticized and judged at the start of the game and then proved them wrong at the end as i saved their asses with Aphrodite multiple times and eventually we won. VERY few times people have apologized and those who did, actually have some sense left in them.

    Then there are those who think you have telepathic powers. You know, those who jump in 1v2 or 1v3 without saying a word (and sometimes not even full hp/mana) and expect you to help (die with them) them. If you don't, you're a noob. If you help and you die as well, you're a noob. *sigh*

    But on to the game itself. After returning from months of break, not much has changed, apart from new gods/goddesses and the new siege mode. However I still cannot believe how much the damn minions do damage in the early stages. This should definitely be adjusted and could increase when certain amount of minion waves have been created. If you try to gank someone around level 6 or so, the amount of damage the minions can do is pretty high.

    Another disappointing thing is, that still some skills need either to be nerfed or buffed. Why not combine Athena's taunt skill with the summon soldier thing? You do them in wrong order and it will never hit basically. Perhaps also give that skill a bit of room to cast it a bit further than just around you? Since none of the skills have truly changed, apart from some nerfs here and there, it's a bit meh. I have no idea what Hi-Rez has been doing all these months.

    One of the annoying things: You cannot get the daily reward (+100 favor from a win) from a game against bots. And the bots are very bad...I would only play bot games if there would be at least somewhat challenge there, since i rather play a relaxing match than a match filled with a-holes (humans).

    Report system. Does it even work? Who looks/decides on the reports? I haven't seen it working, so it just seems like it's there to brings us an illusionary comfort. Better system: Let people give "thumbs up/honor" points to those who deserve it. If you want to have a nice team, you could create your own team by letting others join it through a similar queue as to normal games...except, you cannot join if you don't have high enough honor. This would weed out the a-holes. You couldn't give anyone any negative honor/thumbs down as it could be abused. "You didn't play the way i want, going to dishonor you.". Those with high enough honor (which you could determine when you create the queue/group) would be able to join. This should be made so, that even randoms (people not on your friend list) could join you.

    If you compare this to LoL: At least in LoL bot games/normal games there isn't so many people that are such judging a-holes, there the minions don't do that much lethal damage. That's why i probably occasionally play LoL, no pressure there and no whining.

    I seriously think that the armor rating in Smite should be increased. It is clear that the game is balancing more towards offense items than defense right now. Even with 200 armor/magic resistance and 3000k hp or so, you can get wasted really quickly, and not by a group, but a single player, which is kinda ridiculous. Since there are % dmg to hp offensive items, why aren't there any +% hp items? Or why aren't there skills that benefit from large pool of hp that could be used in damage skills for a tank? Like 7% of your hp converted into a skill damage in a certain skill.

    Good things about Smite: Daily login rewards. These are actually nice, hope you keep them. VGS system for quick commands. God/goddess lore and some skills are interesting (though would like to see something else than "attacks and slows enemies" type of skills...seems like everyone has some sort of slow). Different game modes.

    Also I think you would need to change the "assist" term to "teamwork" term. Why? Because every time you lose or win a match, take a look at the assist number of the winning team. It is always higher than the losing team's. If the other has 5 players moving as a group and the other has 3 players moving as a group and 2 people trying to do whatever, yes, needless to say who is gonna get wasted. Unless large level/item differences. But take a look at the "assist" total number or each player's assist number after a game. The winning team always has more.

    Another sad thing is, this post won't change a damn thing. Oh well, back to muting people.

    Another wall of text. Is this stuff trending?

    Most of the arguments are invalid. (No, I did not read it all - just some bits here-and-there.)

    Considering you admitted to some of the things that annoy most players, I am really not surprised you had friction with others. If you want to go then bye. No one forces people to play this game so don't.

    Bot games are literally a face roll. I beat them when I had never played a mob before. Like I had no idea what to buy or even how to telephone to the fountain. To that end, they are tailored to new players. Letting them build skills.

    Bye.

    Wow...
    That is the most retarded thing I've ever seen.

    So if you instalock, people must do what YOU want them to do, and they have no right to say what you must do ? You know you aren't the center of the world, right ?
    "Doesn't matter if you instalock a tank" So if I play with a friend, and we want to go Duo lane, you're going to screw that up, and give up superior teamplay because YOU want to have "fun" ?

    Damage dealt by minons. Wait for the wave to be dead to gank. You pull the aggro of any minion if you attack a nearby god. L2P

    Buffing Athena... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!!
    Athena is currently the most powerful guardian in the game, on par with Geb and maybe Sylvanus.

    Playing with bots has one purpose : learning the basic mechanics if you are a new player, and testing a god without burdening a team.
    Let's be honest. I am level 2 in Dota. I have never played a successful game against humans. Yet, I can steamroll the bots on the hardest difficulty with Luna.

    Report system... yeah, not the greatest thing, but heck, we can play with it. Smite is still less toxic than LoL.

    Fenrir Support is perfectly viable, since he can be built quite tanky.

    I feel this is some sort of troll bait thread seeing the replies already. Though this looks like more of a general feedback so I'll move it there and see how it goes.
