SMITE rolls out Season 3 with a new map, new skins, and new mechanics

This is the way the world ends.
The third season of SMITE has begun! Will Brad reveal his love for Dylan? Will anyone realize that Rachel is carrying Simon’s child? Does anyone actually like having Jasmine around? If you’re a fan of the game, you’ll know that none of those questions has anything to do with it. What the game lacks in generic soap opera drama, however, it makes up for with its patch notes, which are rather voluminous for this latest update.

Players can look forward to a new Chinese-themed Joust map and several new skins for various deities. The patch also adds in a new daily quest system and major changes to the active items in the game, shifting the items to being free Relics which unlock as you level. It’s an extensive change to the game that should have a significant impact on both high-level play and casual matches; check out the full notes for a complete rundown of all the mechanical shifts.

I tried Smite back during its world championship however many weeks ago (as I was interested in buying that Ultimate-Get-All-The-Gods pack)…
I loved the gameplay, it’s real fun, but holy shit, the community is toxic af. I played 10 games on a fresh account, and… well… let’s just say I get even less abuse acting like a total noob in League… :o
This looks really good, but those experiences will probably keep me from touching the game ever again :(

Siphaed Yeah… I’m sitting back for awhile and waiting for them to fix the mess of that + the daily quest system…  Forcing me to party with people is really stupid for one of the daily quests.

The new map is beautiful. The balance of the game…not so much.  Mages seem to have been significantly nerfed through item changes this patch.
