I've been a SMITE player since 2012, and I went trough all of the updates that have come troughout the beta and after the release.
Yet, the one that drags me and others down completley is the graphics.
The amount of visual updates is so exagerrated that the FPS drops drastically (from a normal 150 to a 30-40), especially on conquest mode, even if you use the lowest graphic settings.
My suggestion is that there should be an even lower ( or maybe an oldschool graphic, just like it used to be in the beta ) setting that would allow players with slower pc's (not everyone can afford an i7 ivy bridge, you know) to lower the graphics and increase the FPS, automatically improving the gameplay experience, which would bring, and bring back a lot of players.
Thank you for reading.
