    business is business and i think if i hadnt bought everything within the first 3 weeks of playing, this would anger me more. As of right now anything that comes out in a chest i got 100% due to how much content i got. But i can see how paying for a box that cost the same a skin and getting a voice pack from it would make me punch a wall.
    No you shouldn't take games seriously, however if you aren't taking you team seriously then why are you playing multiplayer?

    When MMORPG's do it with even a rarer chance (0,01%) to get an exclusive item, noone blinks an eye.
    But when Smite does it with a higher chance, everyone loses their minds.

    IDK, pretty sure Grand Chase's NA playerbase dwindled over the years until they overhauled the game... No idea what if anything has changed in that game, or if the playerbase got a bump at all. But a huge part of the problem was needing to spend on average about 100 dollars to gamble for the soul breaker pets that were released seemingly every month.

    But yeah, Smite has a serious gambling problem. League of Legends might have less cool skins, but at least they pretty consistently let you buy them outright.

    I want to give Hi Rez a thumbs up on these chests. Why?

    You have a max amount of things you can get and you will get the skins.
    -Unlike some other games you are guaranteed to get the skins.

    Everything that comes out of the chests is equal to or greater than the value of gems spent to open the chest.
    -This you can't beat. Sure you might never use that Ward... but that's the gamble.

    You never get a item you already have.
    -Another great rule, some games just give you same items and reward value back. with no guarantee that you will get the 1% item. With Smite you have 100% chance to get the item.

    Personally I think the chest system is well done. Its a good way to raise money to continue improvements to the game. The Odyssey was crazy awesome, personally I think I saved somewhere around 100$ worth on skins and wards from the Odyssey chests.

    I know it might seem daunting

    60 x 200 = 12,000 gems

    however once you got those skins your ahead of the game on the next mystery chest.


    Like a previous poster said, if you don't like it just don't buy them. If you want it bad enough, drop the dollars and get big on it.

    Funny how other companies don't do such things in similar games (LoL anyone?)

    But if I'm not wrong, LoL doesn't have skins you must get from the chest and can't buy outright.

    Tbh this is just a money grabber.... Like any other game they provide a chest,pack,box,etc and it ruins the aspect of the game because you have to basically throw in cash EVERY god damn time to see that maybe JUST MAYBE you get the skin you wanted so damn badly... I think the whole chest option should be removed and skins should just remain the way they were... 400 gems/600.. or maybe 300 :P.

    I hope they take things like this into consideration because it's a waste of my money.

    P.S: I'm never going to spend any of my Gems on those damn chests!

    Big difference here is the fact you can trade all the useless crap you get out of those boxes for either in game currency or possibly the item you are buying the chest for to begin with. The people who do not want to gamble can just buy it outright from someone who is selling it.

    In Smite you get a bunch of stuff you don't care about? Well sucks to be you because it's going to be stuck there to rot and remain unused forever.

    Honestly I would hardly compare the boxes in MMORPGS to Smite at all.

    Yeah lets not compare those games to this crappy chest system Hi-Rez has.

    Dota 2 has somewhat of a gamble with items but you can trade and buy them from other players off the steam market place which makes it okay. You aren't forced to gamble to get the content you want.

    LoL's chest system has NO CHEST EXCLUSIVE skins. You have a chance to get seasonal skins that come back during their respective holidays/events but it is not the only means of obtaining a certain skin.

    LoL is the chest system done right.

    Basically Solaxe is correct the other top mobas (LoL and Dota 2) do not run this system.
