    Arrow Is Thanatos being an early game hypercarry really good?

    I just thought about this. I noticed that a lot always says "Thanatos is an early game hypercarry, but his late game sucks", I played some Thanatos recently and noticed that this is true even in other modes.
    I'll be honest, I don't think this is good at all. So Thanatos can be absurdely powerful in early game, which lasts just a little, and suck balls for the rest of the game? How can this be good? All other gods are, at least, decent at late game (except Odin, he is horribly in need of a rework on his kit), but people just keep going with Thanatos strenght reduction throughout the game like if it was normal.
    What are you guys' thoughts on this matter?

    It's good because it gets lanes snowballing. It basically hands off the carrying to lanes.
    Smite is an online multiplayer game. You can't have immediate gratification simply by starting the game. The ground is even. There's another player on the other side. You are not entitled to having everything favoring you at every time. If you don't like it, by all means, go back to the 1-shot-kills-all Aliens: Colonial Marines singleplayer.

    Thanatoss can put a lot of pressure in early game. If he does this well, the enemy team will be falling behind their counterparts because they are dying or going back to heal, while their opponents keep farming minions and taking objectives. He will also be ahead thanks to his kills, so he can get into a pretty good mid game thanks to his extra gold and experience. His team will also be ahead, so they will be carrying the game by taking towers and keeping the enemy spending on defensive objects (potions) and trying to catch up to their advantage. If this is not enough to win a match, then Thanatoss falls behind as the team enters late game; either his partners can finish the job or the enemy will end up growing and making a come back.

    So, like late-game characters (like Aphrodite), Thanatoss is a bet: you bet you can win the game during the first half or at least can secure the victory a little later. And, if you can't, the bet is lost.

    It's all based on build as well...
    Such as my ridiculous build for him...
    That won me my past 2 ranked games with sexual levels of KDR...
    And some amazing moral team support...
    +40 Boots, Jotunns, Mystical Male... Because Thana is definitely a mystical male...
    Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday. -Wilma Rudolph

    Thana is like Fenrir, hades, odin or bastet. Early game gods that will/can dominate, but then turns into either meh or bad come late game. Thana is just the most extreme early game god, because he sucks so hard late.
    .
    I think they are fine, you pick them to get the early lead/force a F6 or hope that your team will make good use of your early lead. So if you see a team full of late game hypercarries, pick a early game god and try and get them to mid/late game where they can run away with the game.

    First, Thanatos IS THE BEST early so don't miss around with him
    Second, Thanatos has a bad late game, but not as bad as you think it is, he would still do some good amount of dmg to you .
