I get to play with/against pro players in LoL all the time and it's pretty amazing. I probably won't play ranked in this game for a very long time.
Also this new MM seems pretty decent then again I've only played like 5 games so idk.

Hi-Rez giving 5000 favor and 200 gems per month by simply just logging in is extremely generous. They have been throwing around so many gem events and free rewards so often lately it's actually kinda scaring me. D:

Really hope the game is doing well because something similar happened in another game I played that died. Then again their population is really high so not really worried about Smite dying anytime in the near future.

I finally played again a couple days ago for the first time in a month. When coming back, idk what it is, but I feel like everyone is twice and angry and twice as bad as they were before. I was on a team with 2 "pro" players, one had a master 7 Thanatos and the other had a mastery 8 something, but I forget what. They played way too aggressively, kept getting themselves killed for no reason, and then we lost because they were dead pretty much the whole time.

I do find that the raging 12 year olds seem to be more common in smite now that it's population is growing.

Maybe it's just me, but I felt like those kids always existed. Even if the community is way better then in a lot of other online games that are f2p. The bigger games are kind of a magnet for such people, just look at League of Legends.

What kind of grinds my gears of lately in Smite are the queues. This is a regular Joust League queue for me...

Vulf
My queue times for Arena and Conquest are always less than 30 seconds. Joust is either a really underplayed game mode or your MMR is just that high. LOL

Joust is far from being underplayed, but at my MMR it kinda is. Aswell it got really easy to dodge (most people know I don't solo queue, so if they see me in no party and joining queue they know I'll queue Joust). The other queues are from 30 seconds - 3 min for me.

This kinda made me smile:

I know that Smite is trying to improve matchmaking, and recently I have had more close matches, but yesterday while playing a bit with my clan, we were up against 3 people with mastery 10's and 5000+ kills on each. Thanks improved matchmaking!

An upside tho is that foreign servers have become more stable. I was playing with 2 people in my clan and the leader was someone from Australia, so it was connecting to Australian servers. I was very surprised and happy that I had no lag at all while playing on them.

Well partys kinda fuck up matchmaking ;) When I 4 man queue Siege and it happens that we have some master/high ranked players with their tryhard face that try to break our old record of speedrun Siege (6 min) we get a lot of salty people. If we wouldnt have queued as a party the team would be split fair I guess.

As much hate Nox get, she is probably one of the best counters to He Bo. And she got damage that is also quite decent. Whats funny is that she kinda negates her own kit (ult and 2). And her 1 is the most useless skill ever...
Kyonko Hizara
I think I have a Seige record of 7 minutes. The other team just happened to be 4 really bad people.

At first when seeing Nox I really wanted her, but after looking into her moves and seeing how other people play as her, I really don't want her now. Better save my gems and favor for someone better :U Speaking of gems, I need to buy more skins, but lazy. AAAAAAA BUT THAT NEW SCYLLA SKIN.
Vulf
Nox is a poorly designed anti mage. They should just rework her because no amount of number tweaks is going to save that theme with her current kit.

Also Siege MM is incredibly messed up because it's plagued with premades.

I have yet to buy skins, but I really really want a few ;-; Is it worth it to buy skins?
Vulf
I own every single Fenrir skin. Even the gold and diamond ones.
4 Ra skins 2 were free though (alienware and solar eclipse) and have yet to play a single game with that god.

There are some free skins like the facebook, twitter and youtube skins.

I buy what I really like and in Fenrir's case it's all of his skins. <3
Honestly if you play a specific god a ton it's definitely worth it.

Yeah I play Kuku and Artemis a lot, and I have been getting into Scylla and Freya more recently.
I'm prolly going to go for Sacred Dragon for Kuku and maybe also gold and legendary, and then I really want Lil' Red for Scylla. I'll prolly pour $25 into gems or something and see what I can get.

I already have the Stalker Skin for Artemis and Water Dancer for Nu Wa.
Vulf
I've spent well over $200 on this game and I don't play it that much. LOL

This explains why queue's are so awful for Ranked modes.
http://www.smitestuff.com/statistics/#overview

1% of Smite's population plays ranked Joust. 3% for Ranked conquest.
Kyonko Hizara
I got the Lil' Red skin for Scylla so I got a free odyssey chest. Surprisingly, it spit out something I wanted. It gave me the voice pack for Kuku.

So many people are scared of playing ranked because they could get stomped (especially 1v1). There are 2 kinds of 1v1 players, the ones that play for fun, the others (just look at Mexxtex) that try to win no matter what (Backdoor, Cheese, literally spamming games). Since the new queue system I started playing on my other level 30 acc Redàlice to get shorter queues and easy matches. And against conq ranked, I by myself get bored at picking/banning.

I own everything in the game except recolors. Some exceptions are Golden/Diamond He Bo, Diamond Merc. I rarely buy Gold skins, more likely I'll buy a Legendary or Diamond skin. It's really easy to get gems with tournaments/free gem days/giveaways on twitch. My friend in Smite gave me 8000 gems on my birthday so I just bought most of the skins in chests with them.

Someone promoting osu! while servers went potato ;)

Vulf
I'm not a big fan of ranked because it is a stressful environment and people get extremely upset over the tiniest minuscule mistake.

I didn't go into ranked on LoL until 3 years after I hit level 30 in that game.

Someone posted this on the smite forums a couple days ago. Pretty cool signiture creator.

Only shows conquest for now though. :(

My stats overall are really bad. When I see stats pages that combine all modes I cringe since Joust 1v1 destroys everything. Recently saw a lot more hackers in Smite. Wezired/Symzer got banned (thanks god, his autoaim was a pain to go against, so were his wallhacks...).

Speed hacking is back too I think.
I remember when this was a problem last time and it was really annoying.

Hopefully a lot more bans will be issued out this time.

Also 2 free Fenrir skins for overwolf right now? Too bad I own them already! LOL
