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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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...).
I think the Hel skin should be cheaper since it's quite lackluster compared to the other current Christmas skins. Not that it is bad, just compare it to the Nu Wa or Sylvanus skin.
Ao Kuang got nerfed already, I didn't see a problem with him. He had 1 way to deal damage that was easily countered (his 2) and his execute is quite weak (you can beads, aegis etc.). His Attack Progression was quite sick (kinda like Kali) maybe they could have changed that.
Atleast Vamana got the nerf he deserved (at his ulti, instead of 140 free physical power 100), he just encouraged stacking defense and then getting 1 crit item.
Everyone was complaining how if you aren't watching yourself, then Ao could use activate his 2 and completely take them down. It's not really the matter that he himself was strong, it's that people are pissy that he was super strong if you build him right.
