SMITE adds the warrior Bellona to the fray

    
45
SMITE has taken another giant step forward as the MOBA has introduced its first true female warrior to the champion pantheon.

Bellona is a take-no-prisoners fighter who wields several different giant weapons (including sword and hammer) depending on the attack. The more Bellona hits or gets hit, the faster she moves and the more protected she becomes, making her an agile tank.

The recent patch also added new champion skins, emotes, voice packs, and a new god rotation. You can watch the patch overview video after the jump.

ThunderJackson zyrusticae I think the problem with boob plate is that they will crush the breasts in a lot of different motions or pressure a combatant will have to go through, therefore, you might as well not wearing them cuz its more dangerous to do so.

Sorenthaz ManastuUtakata grungepunk1022 zyrusticae Except that we’re talking about historical representations of a fictional character, not a real person. And even if she were real and not just part of Roman mythology, Smite doesn’t try for exact historical accuracy anyways, which is why Apollo is portrayed as some kind of magical rock star who can shoot lasers from his fingers and why Ymir isn’t the size of a planet.

ManastuUtakata Sorenthaz grungepunk1022 zyrusticae  Black face is kiiind of more on the extreme end though because that was always used to mock/parodize black people.  But fair enough.

ManastuUtakata Sorenthaz zyrusticae  Yeah, but gods don’t make sense in general to humans.  :p

Sure. But form a god’s perspective they wouldn’t make any functional sense beyond the vestige is all I am saying.

Nonsense. You can object too boob plate (lol) now as you can object to black face for example. Neither position takes away from their historical accuracy, significance or impact.
But honeslty, you guys should really know that by now and not have to be reminded. Just saying.

ManastuUtakata grungepunk1022 zyrusticae  Yes but then they’d be pressing political correctness over historical accuracy.

Narayan zyrusticae  Eh I like the anime stylings.  To me it adds to her sort of wild battle-hungry personality that they touch on in her lore during the god reveal video for her.   That and it adds to her badass factor and making her look like an agile weapon master who can do a lot of crazy stuff.

ManastuUtakata zyrusticae   “Gods with mammary glands are about as useful as robots with mammary glands. That is to say, “not very”. /sigh” Pretty sure most female gods in Smite can kick ass and make people’s lives miserable.  >.>
Though on a more serious note, mythological gods and whatnot were basically all created by human imagination in one form or another.   So human depictions of those gods were made in a way to basically be the epitome of human beauty.  That and there seemed to be a big thing with fertility (sex) goddesses back then.  And a good chunk of the goddesses in Smite are known as fertility goddesses or giving birth to other gods among the other stuff they’re known for.  

It does make sense when you consider that a good maority of gods in these mythologies are treated as basically being higher beings that have humanoid form and do humanly things like Zeus banging everyone.

Norlamin  She’s definitely heavily anime-styled.  Lol.  But kind of adds to the badass/wild warrior factor in my opinion.
