Did you guys end this year as a shitter or a person who is good at this game?
thoughts on the new official tierlist boys?
>solo lane against Sol
this shit needs to be fixed. Her fucking aoe bullshit she does when she says "let's make it hot :D" is cancer as shit. She has the niggerest of the niggerest escapes ever THREE SECOND AEGIS WITH A TRAIL THAN FUCKING STUNS AND SHREDS, FUCK MY GAME UP SENPAI. And niggers still act super obnoxious like they're some big fucking deal playing a turbo nigger. I bet those faggots were like "ooooh wow I can get away with so many misplays and get kills by smashing my keyboard Im so good"
>inb4 le mad lelele smug posts incoming
yes Im mad
solo lane Sol can be dealt with, her early clear is a bit shit and if you just go gaia you'll never die to her or get out-sustained in lane. Sol ADC is where the cancer starts.
>is ao kuang good?
>why is his winrate so low?
the way to properly use him is non-obvious. You'd think you're supposed to use your one to get close to someone and then start auto attacking them to death with your 2. You would be dead wrong, and doing that will just get you killed over and over.
Kuang is all about poking, avoiding damage, micromanaging enemy active cooldowns, and always always trying to avoid damage while using the max range of your skills. This means yes, shooing your 2 rather than auto attacking more often than not.
>playing casual conquest
>want izy gaem
Suddenly everyone starts shitting on me 'cause Sol "is not an ADC","we gonna lose and its your fault".
Used to, but I got talked out of it pretty quick.

Out of all the shitposting retards in the thread, I pray these two posts are not the same person. No one man should be this far gone to autism.
It's still a pic of Bellona. A quick reverse image search shows it was uploaded to Deviantart by "Radicalflaw", and although it was taken down for NSFW content it was backed up on pinterest.

All you need to do is learn how to play against Sol. I shit all over her with just about any Warrior I play.
Don't stand next to minions. She'll just use her 2 and hit you along with them. Don't stand in her trail of fire. Don't stand in her ultimate, it's easy as fuck to dodge and does only 25% damage on each consecutive hit after the first. Learn how long her 3 lasts and use that to your advantage. Get Shield of the Underworld, maybe Hide of the Nemean Lion since she's very auto-attack focused. Other than that, just learn your own strategies to beat her.
WAKE ME UP
CANT WAKE UP Not even when I play Ravana can I carry these baddies
Does Hirez just not give a shit about premade matchmaking? I'm the solo but that other team never stood a chance.
That's not even the half of it
the thing with anubis is that he has really high mobility so he can rotate quickly, gank lanes out of nowhere, and go deep to steal buffs without any risk. That's why he's a god tier jungle, right behind artemis.
>Bard proceeds to dc 3 times throughout the match and never comes back
T-thanks for the fun games SmGen
4th biggest moba now due to HotS
Plus due to poor servers an the SPL ddos the advertisement of Esports didnt go well. As well as lackluster advertising. Matchmaking is beyond repair. Even some of the posts in this thread are examples. Small character pool compared to bigger mobas
>Small character pool
To be fair though Dota 2 had the advantage of already having a big character pool to simply port while Smite had to create their characters from scratch.
League also has the advantage of simply being out earlier than both Smite and Dota 2 and therefore, having more characters released, it being released 2009, as opposed to Smite's 2014 or Dota 2's 2013.
>mfw forgot to log in yesterday to get my 35 log in gems
Ok, if guardians, warriors, and mages are supposed to be out in lanes fighting on the front lines, and assassins are junglers, what role do hunters have?
Sorry if these questions seem to be pretty basic, it doesn't really say on the website strictly what role each class has in terms of gameplay
>fighting a guy
>my guardians is standing 5 feet away just watching
>my guardian comes up and hits the guy once killing him
Artemis won't she has her hand pistols ready for the fools that don't bump or post

Eh, at least it's not another ward.
What do you guys think happens if I unlock?
You think Khepri is already in 2016?
>mfw watching someone build Magical Damage only on Khepri
I'm gonna fuck that cat
You can, but its situational. It's well over how much pen you need for most people, but against a warrior or guardian comp, or someone memeing the all prot and pen build, its good. In fact having Dgrip and Spear gives you the highest DPS possible on Freya, but ONLY if you use all that pen. 9/10 times, Dgrip is enough.
So how do I build Sol for maximum "Fuck You" potential?

Loki is so much fun
Apollo swing his ass too much in his tsm/curse skins and makes me lose focus.
He's probably some kind of germanic. They're all a bunch of lupophiles.
Doesn't incon live in the midwest? Only the most alpha of top dogs have non-fat girlfriends there, there just aren't enough of them to go around. Really, he has no other options, I feel bad for him.
...his wide back leg stance
...his ragnarock skin that kind of gives him a loin cloth but it doesn't even cover his ass
...the fact that he has human intelligence and can speak but chooses to be naked anyway, characters with no shame get me bothered
>People tell me Cupid a shit
>Decide to try him out after seeing someone obliterate an entire team with him
>Build Soul eater, Warrior tabi, transcendece, executioner, and 2 crits
>Absolutely fucking wreck anybody who isn't heavy in defence
Why isn't he used more? Cuoid is GOOD. Yeah you're squishy as fuck and won't last long in a gabk, but he has a great escape and his ult is some ridiculous bullshit while people aren't using beads.
>Odin wastes all his mana on waveclearing
>Nox keeps missing her 2-1 combo
>Xing never buys Blink and instead uses his 3 to dive in
>Herc uses his 2 successfully, but then uses his 1 to knock the enemy into safety
He's also one of the best solos and is actually Ares 4.0 since he has everything the dev's refused to give Ares since it would be OP as fuck. Fuck he's even the Chinese god of war.
>someone get chrion
>they do shit and afk
>someone gets sol
>and does nothing
>sit in spawn
>say something about it
>someone on my team says"I wouldn't be talking your build is cancer"
nah mang i picked warrior and no one picks tank so I have to beef up on def and you say that NOPE have fun with that loss
It's not an everyday thing I just got fed up. I didn't want to get in a message match with some fuckwad nor did I want to hang around playing a match with those people.
>Still thinking we will use the 2015 meme
>qt pics of bellona
you can no longer see her nip
yes you won, you won you fucking retarded mods fuckers
Anon, Bellona isn't going to get an Italia skin. It doesn't fit her character. She's also only ever allowed to get edgy skins.
Also the personification of Italy is just a rip-off of Roma in the first place. So you'll probably get what you want once Hirez adds Roma.
Good lord Loki is insane in Clash.
The increased gold consumption helps him so much that you basically 1 shotting everyone that's not a tank by 20 minutes and taking towers/pheonixs with ease.
Iv yet to lose a clash game with Loki
Khepris ult is fucking retarded.
It makes it so fucking morons can fuck up and suffer no consequences in it. At least Zileans shitty ult from league has them come up in the same spot that they died, that way the team has to actually fight to save them. With Khepri it's just "LOL U FUCKED UP BUT ITS OK I'LL SAVE YOU" and has faggot beetle ass scuttles away.
Oh also her base stats are FUCKING AWFUL.
She ties with Rama for the lowest mana I think in Smite at level 20 with 885 but his costs are dirt cheap.
Her HP is even worse with having only 1890 hp only 5 higher then Cupid and her base inahnd damage and growths are the lowest in her class. She literally is the worst hunter base stat and growth wise it isn't even funny and her counter measures to it are laughable.
>mfw I reported you both times before and you're this salty about it
You're in the club chillin' when this girl slaps your waifu/husbando's butt .
Keep in mind shes six feet tall and pure muscle
bigger lane bully than Neith and Sol put together. Enjoy getting infinitely poked, pushed halfway down the lane towards his tower and sniped from 2000 units away when you get low.
>Get hit once
>Dodge two shots from the ult
>get hit by one
>Hits you once with an auto

>he dashes away for free because nobody has that long a dash
>Dash away and get kicked back so your out of range to retaliate
I'm imaging Bellona giving Nemesis a nice spanking on her fat butt now.

>I will cut you down
>went 88/87/0 in arena last night git gud
>guess who's carrying your team shitter
Nah, Weed will be legalised and everyone will chill the fuck out. That's my take on 2016.
And if you're talking about Smite specifically, the Japanese pantheon is going to bring in a lot of new players. If the Chinese teams are any good at worlds this year they'd start making a lot more money. I think 2016 will be a good year for smite.
shut up, kid. While youre off diddling your member in duo or solo killing creeps and having a "first one to die loses so lets just stare at each other" contest with some other chucklefuck, I'm doing the real work, contesting mids, hitting 5 first to gank, getting pressure, invading, denying the enemy their red or purple potions and carrying you.
Pretty much. Have you seen the candidates in this election? None of them are good, and Americans are eating all of it up. Either way America is fucked and the world is already going to shit.
But this isn't /pol/ so I'm not going into it any more.
I mean, you've got a point. I love duo now because it's a chess match on who does first and who is better than the other. Plus I can usually Carry hard enough as an ADC that, if at least one more person pulls their weight we can usually win.
>people who are not junglers are running about willy-nilly in the jungle to go from lane to lane whenever they see an enemy ping on the minimap
>people are getting themselves killed not a minute into the match
>people quit mid-match instead of calling for a vote to surrender.
I wish I could discover who these people are who quit instead of surrender and uninstall the game for them. I simply do not need those types of people in my reality.
>>people who are not junglers are running about willy-nilly in the jungle to go from lane to lane whenever they see an enemy ping on the minimap
You don't like when people rotate?

Last match there were four players in one jungle and they didn't know where they wanted to go, they left two lanes open trying to hunt down the enemy jungler who was popping in and out of view.
actual damage and defense and not full meme attack speed stay in shield stance and hold left click for infinite absorb damage. So many smartasses think they are genius when they do this. It never fucking works, never

GO TO THE CINEMA IF YOU WANT TO WATCH SHIT
Steam and xbox integration did almost nothing for popularity and playerbase. I doubt the PS4 will do much either.
E-Sports scene is a joke now with hi-rez focusing more and more on skins and 'fun' stuff over balancing(Serqet and Thor untouched for a year now, Kali still in the dumpster, etc).
They've already forcefully started hiding overall playerbase stats and any attempts to expose their shitty MM. They're hiding that info for a reason. They've been lying about the number of players since earlier this year.
I just don't see it being around much longer, at least not as a competitive game. Which in this e-sports era, is all that matters. I think Overwatch will be the final straw.
I'm actually quite happy whoever made the OP this time had the brains to make the image old SWK. Thank you anon.
Happy New Year. Happy New Year to all you faggots. To /innercircle/. To futas. To SmGen>Gensm. To NA>EU. To uber is that you? To Tyroshitma, ShadowCzar, Fred, etc. To all of you shitty, shitty people, who are still on the whole honestly better than most people I meet in my day-to-day life, and probably better than me.
Happy memeing, smgen, and a Happy New Year. I love you.

I hate having super defensive teammates, it almost always results in a loss because my team doesn't want to act and take advantage of a situation. It's not like I'm diving into a group of enemies while my team is 20 miles away. I usually only try to dive one enemy, and even then I make sure my friends are close. It's not just Odin, either. I could be dragging someone back as Kephri or tossing them as Xing and half my teams refuse to join in the fight.
here we go again son of a whore van piece of shit can't make his own joke so he just parrots a variation of what he sees. Just like his smug dirrhea, nigger saw it in a mlp thread and thought it was oldfag to do it, and he never quit since that day.
you're also on 4chan retarded faggot
and it's five am here, parties are over since a while now, Im on my phone waiting for the first bus of the day to go home. Not like some cuck who just cropped more cancer all day
New player here. I like to play guardians and I'd like to know what are the most useful items and actives for one.
List some worthwhile guardians as well. I've played mostly with ymir and geb
Pen or Cooldown boots, your preference.
Sovereignty and it's magical defense counterpart, Heartward, are good places to start, as their passive auras help your team a lot.
After that, protections are excellent. Hide of the Urchin is good for pure protection, Bulwark is good for being tough as fuck or Stone of Gaia if you prefer sustain, and you'll probably want to build Breastplate of Valor or Mail of Renewal for cooldown or even more sustain. Partly depends on playstyle.
As far as actives, blink is excellent on both Ymir and Geb, Heavenly Agility is a good item for improving your team's mobility, Creeping Curse is excellent if the enemy has a healer, and Shell is good for a protections boost against any team that's blowing you up quickly.
Does it upset you anon?
>he is still replying

At least I'm glad to see you're no longer attaching this shit to your post, you made some progress. I guess even failure incarnate can feel shame sometimes.
I know you never listen when told to do something reasonable but I'll say it anyway

>He thinks the smug poster is one person
Alright smgen, how do i stop being an arena baby?
im almost level 30 with 84% of matches played on arena
Watch some pro streams or recent youtube videos so you have an idea of what the meta is. If you have a favourite class of god to play you should main a role where you can play those.
queue for conquest
if your not good at conquest then queue for clash
If your not good at clash then queue for joust
If you cant play mage adc and a tank the mode then play assault the most casual of game modes
if you dont like assault then queue for siege
Just kidding dont queue for siege it sucks ass. If you cant play assault just stick to arena
>the odd man said, for some reason. I assumed he meant well, but the look in his eyes suggested something else.
>Something more... carnal, than what I could give him, or were willing to give.
Chiron's voice is fine, but his dialogue is fucking canned god-awful shit.
>"You only hit what you aim at."
Thanks, teacher guy.
>"Draw not unless your arrow be fixed upon a target!"
So, basically the same trite 'advice' again? Neat.
>""Great archers are known not by their arrows, but their aim."
Gee, how profound.
Embarrassingly bad dialogue, dialogue writer guy.
>actually trying to portray nerds wasting their entire day playing gookclick rather than contributing something of value to society as anything other than the trash they are
>muh heroic music
>muh inspiring story
>muh fattie gf
Typically you don't even level the ult past 5 until you have nothing else to level since you should have fatalis or frostbound somewhere in your build.
Bakasura is just raw damage. There are gods who can do it better than him and more safely, and in Smite cc is so abundant that gods who don't have it aren't really up to scratch.
Having said that, I would take those tier lists with a grain of salt. He moves gods up and down the tier list all the time just because someone did well with it in an SPL game.
>Do you find grown men being payed millions to play kids games as a job just as stupid as competitive Smite?
Of course. Why wouldn't I?
All competitive sports should be subject to a 'frivolity tax' of 90%, and that money should go to pay teachers, or some other profession who actually contributes something of value to human society.
Seems like him especially. He's the newest god so maybe their writer guy is dropping off a bit. The early gods like Artemis could use updates, but most of the other gods make me laugh with their dialogue, but Chiron is just groans for days.
Fuck these people who don't buy beads because "90s CD".
>They'll just CC me again anyway.
>Better just die every single time rather than save myself.
I mean, he wasn't even on my team and it was annoying. He was facing Nox and Kumbha as a Serqet. Better not buy beads.
>actually comparing art to sports
Film is art. Art is the expression of our uniquely human creativity.
Competitive sports are nothing more than an outlet for our base, animalistic aggression instincts.
One of these is healthy. One is not. All kids should participate in team sports as a child/teenager. When they're grown, it's time to find a real job that actually contributes to humanity, though.
But even granting the acting/sports comparison, the average professional actor makes ~$20,000 a year, while the starting average for pro sports is ~$400,000.
>no fun allowed
Grown men can still be paid to play kids, they just won't make millions of dollars doing so, due to them being taxed for the worthless nature of their 'career'.
These e-sports boys have to bust ass to make it.
Let's compare to a different sport: Racing, specifically of cars or motorcycles. The prize money from races appears to be vast when you look at it from the outside. However, that's a massive risk you're taking, spending a great deal of money, time, and effort for what is in the end not a great return. The vast majority of racers, even the ones that you see on professional circuits, spend their entire lives devoted to the "art" of racing.
Do you look down on racers, who have devoted their lives to something they are passionate about? If not, can you still look down on these pro players who have devoted their lives to something they are passionate about?

Can you stop reposting images the very next thread after I use them? Every time I post something I always see them the very next day. Like do you not have any images of your own?
>Getting buttmad over having the images that you took from other people taken
Not mad, I just don't get why someone always reuses an image i used just the other day. And it only seems to happen in this general so I think it's literally just one guy that's fascinated by the images I post.
