    Splitscreen party members

    This might sound quite Noobish, But I don't think I am the only one out there that thinks splitscreen would be a good idea.
    My wife and I both love playing Smite on Xbone, but at this stage its always a battle as we kindof have to take turns, and it feels a little unfair that the only way we can ever party up is if we had to buy a 2nd Console. Splitscreen works for so many other competitive 1st person console games. I can really practically visualise how it could work.

    What do you guys think?

    Am I the only one that wants this?

    In theory, split screen would be great... but I think the UI is already bursting at the seams on screen for one player, I couldn't imagine how cramped it would be with two.

    it would be nice to be able to split screen and play with friends. i don't think it would be cramped even with 4 on a 55 in + tv

    The gold and kills board could stay the same size, scaling down the size of the personal UI elements could work in theory.

    this wouldnt work, too little space to fit everything, and that would make the team 2 players short basically

    This could actually work. Have the top stay the same and just mirror the screen for the other side, it's a great idea and it would make a lot of people happy.

    i don't think it'd be possible, and furthermore it would lead to massive amounts of trolling.

    For starters, you'd need to have 2 separate accounts logged in at the same time.

    Trollers would have a field day, since they'd just do the split screen and then force a 4v5 or a 3v5 by leaving.

    I would rather it not happen. I can see the appeal for sure but feel it wouldnt work. Maybe if they made it so you can split screen for co-op and practice that would be a decent solution. As long as split screen stays out of league and versus i am fine with it
