SMITE’s Patch 5.5 strikes up a party atmosphere in this MOBA, starting with eight new god skins, adjustments to the matchmaking system, and improvements to the new player experience. Beginners will enjoy better level up rewards than ever before, including a free god, a free voice pack, and plenty of other goodies.
The devs at Hi-Rez are also using this patch for significant balance tweaks: “As the Season continues, we have gotten to a point where players are starting to really understand the map and how to gain a lead from it. Even so, players are struggling to find opportunities to end the game; with Phoenix sieges being very difficult even with a substantial lead. Comeback potential is important, but it shouldn’t feel like the lead built up through the game is unimportant.”
