[PC - MOBA] Smite

Postby The-Monk on Mon Apr 29, 2013 2:40 pm

Anyone else played Smite yet. I see its just come out of open beta. I do like League of Legends but the whole 3d concept for a MOBA type game caught my attention. Will probably give it a try if anyone else is interested?

Also if anyone else knows more about the game and can give me some tips that would be great.

I just did the default tutorial, then had a look at the gods on free rotation ...checked out some of the skills and took a god which sounded interesting and ran a Arena match (simple map, no lane phase, team death match mostly but the aim is to get your minions into the enemy portal and stop the enemy minions getting into yours).
Ran a few Arena matches then tried the other modes 1 by 1.

I found most the gods in the current rotation to be easy enough to learn (not master, learn) and the community hasnt jumped all over me for making a mistake...yet, ok had some rager upset I wasnt a pro Ymir tank on my first attempt at Ymir.

I aint 100% sure about this but last hitting is still valid but you still get gold and exp even if you dont get the last hit, just last hit confers bonus gold and exp.
Minions early match hit very hard and will focus on you very quickly if you attack an enemy god, so dont go too aggressive early game.

Auto level and auto buy, while not always being optimal will at least keep you competitive letting you learn the basics before worrying about builds and skill leveling choices.

That stat Goodwill shown as a percentage is to keep players from leaving or toxic behaviour, if you leave or get punished for toxic behaviour your goodwill drops which effects your Favour income, and I heard it will effect a players eligibility to play in ranked matches.

There is a chat system in the game you access via pressing V and following the menu... once you get used to it you can quiet quickly fire off a VF3 (enemy missing Right) or VRR (Retreat).

Press SPACE to enter mouse pointer mode which will let you click on the screen on UI elements, and ping on the map.

... thats about all I can think of, I am still learning myself.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

Well I gave it a go last night and its a lot of fun. There are a few annoying points but then its in open beta so they might change them.

Yesterday evening I decided to attempt getting into Smite once more and this time it seems to have worked, been playing allot today (and enjoying it), but that might be because I found out I like playing Guardian class allot (especially Ymir, got him to mastery level one already).

I like the Arena mode in it. Found a love for Anubis and Hades, both were one of those "I'll give them a go out of interest" ideas and I quite liked them. I also like the feel of Smite compared to Lol and Dota 2. Though I think this might be due to the perspective as it isn't top down like other MOBAs out there
