Happy birthday, SMITE

Hi-Rez's MOBA SMITE turns one year old today. Confetti! Balloons! Free stuff! Yes, the devs are running a giant sale on gems, god packs, and skins in celebration. The game is still on track for its Xbox One release later this year.

In other SMITE news, Medusa the Gorgon is the latest deity to arrive to the pantheistic MOBA. She's a burst-damage ranged hunter who can pull off all manner of nasty tricks, such as spraying others with acid and petrifying them with a glance. But best of all, she can shoot snake arrows because that's what you want raining down on your head in the midst of battle.

When asked whether the devs were petrified when working on Medusa's art, the team answered, "No but 3-D Modeler Trevor Hennington experienced mild shoulder pain."

I like the game. I hate the players. Why? When picking a god, a teammate would say, ADC, support or whatever. Calling specific roles is just like auto-plocking, so whats the difference? And besides, its a PUB game. II don't like people to choosing what roles I'll play the part. Then when everything is losing, they'll blame you.

Worst part, after 10mins everybody surrenders. This is the game for babies. Yes, who wants to lose, but this game has below 50% of having a comeback matches ever in the entire MOBA genre.

Alex J Sorenthaz Siphaed *shrug*  Hi-Rez likes to do cheesy stuff.  That's kind of their thing.

I.e. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65jUl2MkB1c  and more recently https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgoYxj0qrq8

Estranged Sorenthaz Yeah.  It's a mix of MOBA systems (its itemization is most akin to LoL I'd say) and shooter games thrown into a third-person action MOBA bundle.

Estranged  Smite is fun if you want more action and enjoy faster-paced shooter-style action (because everything's a skillshot and has to be aimed).

I must say the $30 dollars I spent on the ultimate god pack has been one of the best game investments I have ever made. I have tried most of the other Moba games but I can't get the isometric play style.

Sorenthaz Siphaed Both videos are pretty bad.

I really like SMITE (the only MOBA game that is bearable to watch and play) and many people at HiRez who are responsible for it, but this video is just... ugh... Not very good, to put it mildly.

You must be a Katie Perry fan.  I now feel sorry for you....

Also Ah Puch (Mayan god of death or something like that) is apparently in the files as the next upcoming god.   And Morrigan (of a brand new Celtic Pantheon) is potentially next.

Siphaed   Well, you can certainly say that and be wrong.

That video...just...just...can we say it's worse than the PR stunts that A.Net did for GW2?  Oh yes, we can.
