    If christianity was ever a thing in this game, what "champions" could you have? Feels kinda narrow tbh. It's Jesus, God and Satan. Sure there are some angels and demons perhaps. Maybe prophets?

    Best regards,

    Arch Angels are a great start. Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and however you want to call it. Lucifer would be a nice addition as well. Michael and Lucifer would be a nice double release for the pantheon for their direct and prominent interaction with each other.

    4 horsemen of the apocalypse can work as well. There is a lot room for greatness in christianity that could be tapped without pissing off too many people, but eh.

    Yeah, why can't this be a thing? I've seen many god awful movies starring those arch angels and demons, why can't they be in Smite? :P

    - Egyptian - Set, Horus and Nut
    - Norse - Heimdall, Jormungandr and Baldr
    - Hindu - Shiva, Durga and Ganesha
    - Mayan - Camazotz, Hunahpu and Ixtab
    - Chinese - Jade Emperor, Fu Xi and Zao Jun (the latter one is mostly a joke, as he is the kitchen god, but there are requests, nonetheless)

    I don't have numbers, but I saw lots for these ones. (I think I'll make some polls)

    About their usage of pantheons, they chose freely when Smite wasn't released because the community was very small. Now that they know what the community wants, I see no reason for them to release unpopular pantheons, unless they make all of them so awesome that people will love them over the popularity of others, but the community complains too much, so, I'm pretty sure they won't add anything unpopular.
    I've been here since smite first released in closed beta. The post talking about gods usually revolved around "what gos would you like to see in smite." Which usually resulted in the most known, not necessarily popular gods being named.

    And what? Choose freely? No they chose pantheons they new would draw peoples attention because people knew gods names. Even if you don't look into mythology, people know the name Zeus, Odin, and Ra especially compared to names like Baron Samedi, Nyami,AsaseYa, or Aido-Hwedo. This is understandable since that's just wiae marketing, but they never bothered to move beyond that, they just stayed with the same trend. Hell, they even bothered doing Greek and Roman gods, when Romans have 6 gods tops that the Greeks didn't have. Romes while pantheon was based on assimilation. They didn't destroy the religion of the people they conquered, they assimilated that cultures religion into their own. Hell, Amun-Ra was literally considered to be Zeus/jupitor Ammon was literally the combination of the 2.

    HR could've been expanded long before season one ended, and refused not to. We were suppose to get a new pantheon this year and I'm still waiting to see it. At the end of the day all HR is going to do is recycle through the same pantheons and if or the hundreds of other JUST AS interesting pantheons that exist.

    Fenrir seems easier to size down, though, because his body is more, uhm, "short" I could say? He has more of a box figure. Whereas Jorm was a snake, so he had a lengthy figure. I guess they could do what they did with Medusa, though. Make her tail not have a hitbox, only her upper body.
