With all these free gems again I keep going up against really good ranked players in Arena and I can't win anything ;_;

At least Awilix is fun.

Maybe if I had people to play with I'd play more. The clan I was in barely plays anymore.

I'm mostly burned out on Moba's after playing dota, LoL, Dota 2 and Smite for about 7 combined years now.
I've always played Smite rather casually. Closed beta player that isn't even level 30.

I had a couple of friends that I played this game with earlier this year but they quit for WoW's new expansion (I'm guilty of this too).
Honestly I would be down for a couple of arena games a night if I had people to play with. Problem is I never idle smite so I would need to add people on a messenger program like skype so they can bug me to play. LOL

Smite is the game I mainly play lately, next to some Civ5, Touhou and maybe osu if my connection has problems. The main Problem right now is MM is in a "test" phase. It keeps me and a lot of other friends from queueing if you aren't in a premade. Just as example:


Stone of gaia on a god with selfheal in Siege is bad. Well, not the worst thing ever I guess...

The Kulkulkan just went full lemon. These 2 players have less games together then half of my wins. And this isn't rare... if they wouldn't feed their brains out I don't care about what they build. I went 14/5 while my friend went 13/4 and we both had more then double their damage.

The issue I have with smite right now is mostly not having anyone to play it with.

I also hate the super burst CC chain meta right now. Can they just remove Serqet from the game already? I've already accepted that the MM in this game will probably always be bad so that isn't really an issue with me anymore.

Also no lifeing WoW WoD right now isn't helping me get motivated to play again either. LOL

I bought $24.99 worth of gems and even after the payment was complete I had to contact support so maybe they'll give me my gems.

It's a digital transaction...it shouldn't be that hard to complete it.
Vulf
What method did you use to buy gems?

Even with my debit/credit card it sometimes takes about an hour or 2 to process.

Hmm they sometimes take long. I have to wait like 3-4 days after a tourney until HiRez pays the gems. Normally transactions with Paypal and Paysafe were quite fast.
Vulf
From my experience with tournies on other games it has always taken forever to get the rewards. Took blizzard a couple of weeks to give me my reward for some random SC tourny a few years back. Took Riot 4 months to finally give me my Triumphant Ryze skin.

I did Paypal. Because of the rush to buy gems to get the free ones I had to contact the payment site for them to put through my order.

The new map looks pretty cool.

Maybe I'll play more Conquest more. It looks better, I hope the meta will switch. It just got boring for me, Siege is cool though.

I hope they don't implement the new buff leech functions into Joust. It's one of the changes I don't like.
Vulf
Leech? You mean the health no longer resetting when the AI attack tether range is broken?

Yeah I really dislike that change because it's going to make leashing in conquest 100% mandatory or you will fall behind the other jungler. This mechanic is a straight rip from how the leashing is done in LoL. I really like how leashing is not mandatory in Smite or it's a team commitment to kill the furies or the level 1 buff at the start. Now you are going to start seeing mids auto once and walk away and get free exp with no effort.

Dumb change. Inb4 the blue buff is moved directly next to the mid lane so mages start taking that at level 1. If this game becomes LoL v2 I will definitely be quitting and not looking back because seriously fuck LoL and it's stupid mechanics and lazy ass devs.

Yep thats what I was meaning lol. Honestly I don't think it will be the worst change ever, just easy to invade which lets me want this change less in joust since it's so invade and contest heavy. people already split exp as much as possible. That is what makes me dislike items like Watchers Gift and Bumbas. They encourage to just afk farm, sit next to stuff and get free exp.

What bothers me is the mass of CC in this game and how most of them just get countered by beads. I'd really like more skills that get countered in different ways and require reaction similar to how Stop Time works (slow followed by stun if the slow hits; means you can sprint if you are fast enough).

People think way too high of Ao Kuang since the swc and most of them feed their brains out. Same with Osiris and Scylla.
Vulf
Beads and even magi's has needed an extremely severe nerf for a very long time now. Those items are so broken that newer stuff (even older gods) is pretty much balanced around the fact those items exist in the game so you can't just nerf them without adjusting about a dozen other Gods. It's one of those things that is "oh it will be fine since we have beads to deal with it" kind of problem.

Also as I mentioned previously and still is a recurring problem is beads should not in any circumstance render any God 100% useless or nullify a significant portion of their kit.. This doesn't apply to many gods but it's still there.

Honestly the CD could probably go up a bit until Hi-Rez deals with the other issues that item has caused. It should not have the same CD as most ults do in this game. It should be something you pick up because you are having issues with being focused or targeted with CC's often not something that basically trumps every other active in the game aside from aegis which has it's own set up problems. In other words it's pretty much a safe pick up on every god in every match in virtually every situation.

Anyways I tried to play some games on Smite today but it kept kicking me out of the god select screen which resulted in my goodwill going to zero for the first time in over a year :(. After that happened about 3 times I gave up and ran dungeons on WoW. lol

I've been trying to play this game these past days.
But sadly the closest server near my country is in Australia. Meaning my Ping is kinda wonky.

This is pretty annoying since I really love the game.
especially reading about the lore.
Vulf
Yeah ping in this game is very important since pretty much everything is a skill shot.
US server is on the east coast somewhere so it's going to be brutal for Asians and Australians.

My primary duo queue buddy is from Singapore and his average ping was around 280+ which made the game incredibly frustrating for him after awhile until he quit.

Well lately, since I'm not at home rip ping aswell :/ I accidently queued Australia once and played a Conquest match at 600 ping, was a lot of fun.
Most people I know just play easy gods when they have high ping (Bastet, Nu Wa, He Bo, Kulkulkan, Mages in general) instead Hunters, Chronos etc.

Vulf
I'll add you when the servers come online or when I get around to getting online. I actually don't play often but enough i guess.
