ALRIGHT SMIGGEN HERE WE GO:
nth FOR 1v1 TOURNAMENT: 2016 IS SHIT EDITION.
Where: Joust map
When: Starting 1 PM EST Saturday, January 16, 2016
Who: You (NA and EU)
Standard 1v1 Joust settings: 2 bans each, then blind pick. 1500 gold/level 3 start.
Double Elimination. Maybe Single Elim if we get a lot of signups. I'm not capping the number of signups because I don't imagine it will too many to handle.
Prizes for the top 3 are available (courtesy of Dear Leader):
Convention Tyr Skin
(If you win and you want the Tyr skin instead of the gems, it's your pick, etc.)
Tournament will have select matches streamed and casted.
If there seems to be popular interest in changing any aspects of the tournament, we can put up some votes or something.
Here's the signup:
for NA maybe, in EU she was played quite a lot since the rework
wonder if she'll get picked at worlds, i really hope she doesn't become the next flavor of the month with how cancerous annoying she is
She has really shitty wave clear, so she has a hard start in conquest, much like Scylla.
But in non conquest modes where you always have teammates around you, they can easily take advantage of her lock downs making early game kills easier.
>Copper didn't play decent
I-I know that Arachne thing w-wasn't good, but after that I went positive!
Those matches were fun, even if we didn't steamroll them. I really wonder though, what are EU's shitters like? We always only hear from the good players in EU and never play with any of the bad ones. We invite baddies all the time to our games.
Cel didn't take the kill actually, he killed a Fenrir.
It was fun playing with you in the holiday games Monster, really need to do that more often.
>We always only hear from the good players in EU and never play with any of the bad ones
Because in GenSm there's a hierarchy and if you're not a top dog you get ignored and have to complain in thread about inner circle and never getting invited
Oi, tomaira. This is NA territory. Better back up before you get smacked up.
NIGGA THERE'S A LOT WRONG IN THAT POST, I LIKE CURVY WOMEN. I LIKE A WOMAN WITH AN ASS SO BIG SIR MIX-A-LOT HAS TO MAKE A SONG ABOUT IT. I LIKE HIPS SO WIDE MY ARMS POP OFF MY BODY WHEN I'M SHOWING PEOPLE HOW WIDE THEY WERE. I LIKE A PAIR OF LIPS SO LUSCIOUS SHE NEEDS 3 TUBES OF LIPSTICK FOR DATE NIGHT. I WANT A WOMAN WITH THIGHS SO PLUMP I ACTUALLY HEAR THUNDER WHEN SHE WALKS. WHEN I SEE HERE GET OUT OF A CHAIR I BETTER LOOK AT THAT ASS AND HOLD THE WORD "DDAAAAAYYYUUUUMMMM" FOR AT LEAST FIVE SECONDS.
I exaggerated just a little bit but I'm happily in an abstinent relationship with a woman that weighs slightly more than I do. HoneyIfYou'reReadingThisI'mSoSorryIt'sJustMeJokingWithThoseInternetFriendsIToldYouAboutPleaseDon'tBeMad
Yeah and we didn't have Mao or Bd, just some fun scrims.
Mao and Bd were making fun of my builds during the stream
I hope for a C9 - Paradigm championship, but C9 - Epsilon would be cool too. If Enemy fucking reached the championship everyone would go crazy, and Reddit tears would flood the globe over Pain's roster changes so there's that on a side note. Best matches are still C9 and Para or Epsilon anyway
C9 - Paradigm seems more likely. Unless Epsilon throw their first game vs a BR team they'll be put into the lower bracket with C9 where they'll face of in the Semi finals (if at all).

Okay what are things this game needs in terms of balancing?
Thor (a great amount)
Ravana (a tad)
Bellona (a tad)
Zhong (a good amount)
Baachus (shouldn't be able to kill with Reaver and ult)
Khumba (same as Baachus)
Bakasura (maybe, not sure)
Khepri (literally no reason why he keeps getting nerfed)
KKK (maybe a rekit)
Ymir (no favour skin)
Loki (all we havein infiltrator)
Am I missing/fucked up on something?
No offense but you need to beef up on the meta before talking about this stuff. It's not a cut and dry matter of quotas, since when one person gets nerfed the change makes a ripple effect.
>but you need to beef up on the meta
We are going into a new season where we are getting items the combine with actives, so shut your mouf.
Don't see the irony, but okay.
But yeah I think that's exactly what we're getting.
most of the core items on mages are actives (beads/aegis)
Sunbraker Hou Yi literally says "no body cared who I was until I put on the mask"
Do you think they got this ebin meme from reddit or /tv/?
>wants to nerf barely viable fat boys
nigga you are retarded
>Get reaver on Khumba/Baachus
>can kill anysquishy with an ult
>Merc's kit makes it hard to buff/nerf him without making or breaking him
>Khepri and still being nerfed to this day
kumba and bacchus dont see high level play, merc is fine in the current meta and khepri is still in the top 3 supports.
you are retarded.
Who else here doesnt give a fuck about the e-sports aspect of worlds and just wants to see the new waifu that will reign supreme
>Zennore started drawing Smote again
But she's figuratively perfect. I want to hold hands with her while we go about smiting Donald Trump and Vladmir Putin for their arrogance.
I hope you aren't afreyad of loki norse puns. Some people say they are a thor in their side, and some may call hearing them a living hel, but I assure you that if you just listen, ullr have your sol tickled by the hilarity of the top tyr puns I have for you.
WHAT THYE FUCK IS THIS FUCKING SHIT WHAT THE FUCK WHY IS SOKL IN THIS GAME WHY MOTHERFUCKERS WHY YOU DO THIS NONSENSE SHIT. THREE, THREE 3 SECONDS INVINCIBILITY AND STUN ???? HELLO ? HELLO ? HELLO ?
OOOH I SEE YOU OUTPLAYED ME MY GOOD FELLA
WELL IM A TURBO SHITTER WHO FACEROLL HIS KEYBOARD
I M LE BEST BACK AT FULL HP AND INVINCIBLE XDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXD MLG MLG MLG MLG
LET'S MAKE IT HOT XDXDXDXDXD WOOOO LE SLOW AOE DOUBLE DAMAGE THAT DOES HALF A TANK HP IM LE SPL CHAMPION
LE ULLLT LE ULT WITH LE KNOCKBACK YOU CAN'T PUNISH ME FOR MY MISPLAY IM LE BESEST
>want to play as tank
>Xing Tian, every time my team is shit and I can't do much
>Get Kephri, the same horseshit every time
Is there any way to actually enjoy being a tank in this shit?
Her 3 is easy as fuck to counter, don't stand in the fire, and if she's dumb she'll try to catch you in her 3 by hanging around. She only gets a move speed while leaving the trail, but after that you should jump her once the invincibility wears off. Her 2 is easy to dodge as long as you don't hang around minions.
I'm hoping she's a qt3.14 with a lot of memes.
>he typed, the hot cum still dripping from his mouth, one hand holding his father's cock the other on the keyboard. He giggled like a girl when he pressed the post button and then watched his dad "Im still up for more cum father"
>he made the same joke again and was rockhard, he could not stop congratulating himself for being so good at telling a variation of the same joke over and over again, he felt a little tingling on his prostate. He thought this was the feeling of power but in fact it was his father's cock making its way through his son's shit for the fifth time of the day
It's hard to be support, when you get a team that is made of actual, real people it's fun as hell
But when you get a team full of potatos and feeders, it just sucks the worst
Just keep playing, sometimes they do double exp events on the weekend and such
>not a second passed after his post that he immediately thought about writing another greentext unfunny shit. "I am so good at it, I leave my opponents speechless" he watched the clock for he was a punctual man "oh dear lord I'm going to be late for my father's blowjob" he said? And he hastily typed another shitty greentext before running to the garage
>The others of /smiggen/ watched in a mix of horror and inteerest as the two clashed. Post after post, back and forth they went at it. Trying to out do one another. Was anyone paying attention? Surely, but did anyone care? Only those willing to write about the tale.
>The gods clashing was fierce enough, but so too do the mortals clash on the surface. Wielding technology like scrolls of that which they can continue to respond and attack one another, with perhaps nothing but 'just kidding' behind it.
>again he thought he was being fun and witty but he was nothing but cancerous shit incarnate. It is true that he was stupid. His atrophied brain was rotten and eaten by a rare consanguine illness. "Just let him do this, such an incapacitated autistic brain can't do anything else than showing the world he is a shitstain on a cumrag" said the doctor to his family.
>The anonymous person typed out, somewhat rashly. He typed out yet another reply, wondering whether the other person harbors feelings of rage, of impatience, or simply boredom
Build hybrid and take matters into your own hands desu
I am going to keep playing Clash, queue is a lot faster. But fuck tank role, every time I get a tank character it's full of retards on the team and that guy who only feed and don't even get assist
>counter ares' ult every chance i get with my cage
>team follows up and dominates them
Not sure how I feel.
>literally no reason why he keeps getting nerfed
Because his grab and ult are OP. Rather than rework them, Hi-Rez keeps messing with the rest of him instead of addressing this core concern.
>of course even the smallest of minds can realize that such a behavior is the sign of a truly inferior being that could not even be considered as human from any perspective. But fortunately, if reason and intellect were absent from his capacities, denial was making for it all. "it's for fun, Im just bored and pretending I'm not upset at all this is a joke hahaha".
And it remains OP because they're not nerfing the correct parts of it. reducing CD or increasing mana cost doesn't alter it's core function, and that's what's imbalanced, same with his grab.
>Of course, one should've considered this response. An accusation that rang through the blue halls of which they wrote their aggrievances. But really, the message had to be considered. Was he really upset? Is the author just bored? Only the author knows the truth of these things, and perhaps time will be honest, for a change.
no. Xing has gotten enough nerfs as it is.
honestly all they need to do is revert his nerfs (besides the damage based nerfs) but make it so that he's only CC immune once he starts spinning. That would make him completely fair. 3 seconds of CC immunity while
Yes. thor has gone long enough without a nerf. I think a 2 second increase to his 1 should suffice so he can't just teleport willy nilly and actually has to think about whether to go in or not because a 7 second teleport is pretty stupid.
>not being good
His ult is honestly really fucking gimped now. Before anyone with the ult had a massive power and speed buff, revived with full health. Now they have to pray they can get away in 5 seconds or the Khepri can use his dash correctly to get out of the fight.
In most fights it seems to have zero impact. Someone gets their shit pushed in, khepri ults, and they die anyway
ok this is straight retarded
where do you live just give a city and a place to meet. and we'll settle this. You're the worst of the niggers I've ever seen you just reply to start shit for no reason and act super cocky because "internet troll XD". Give a city name and we'll see who's still shittalking
Holy shit those builds are hilarious
Ares has no magic protection going up against a Zeus, Rama rushed a goddamn obow, picked up malice 2nd item and has no boots
I mean most of people you were facing were sub level 30, so I guess that's to be expected, but shit
Guys I fixed Bacchus.
>Decrease Intoxicate's scaling from 70%>40%
>If the opponent is hit by two burp waves within three seconds, they are stunned for two seconds, all provided Bacchus is at least tipsy.
>implying the F team isn't Bournmouth, Townshend, Ace, TwoRedKings, and
>implying I'm not Taro
Would any other person type the following phrase without their brain locking up from the sheer stupidity of it:
"CC is fucking bullshit unless it is on Tyr because I main Tyr and as a result he gets a pass."
>can play any role
>know the meta
>don't play conquest because i don't know the VGS
my brain cannot remember how to say
>ill gank left/right/middle lane
>Enemies coming left/middle/right
>Khepri is literally the easiest support to play
>One of the best supports
>His kit is amazing and loaded with far too much shit than he should as is the case with most new gods
>"Literally no reason why he keeps getting nerfed"
Personally I think having the new gods be OP then toned down is okay, much better than making them shit and having to completely rework their kit (i.e. Ravana) so people will actually play them
They just shouldn't go fucking overboard with the nerfs like they did with R@. But that's what happens when companies think places like reddit are the voice of the community
>m-mecury is ass!
we'll see at SWC kid. Hold your tongue till then.
Pretty much, yeah. Drybear decided it was a good idea to do a bunch of intentionally bad changes just to "experiment". Surprise surprise, people didn't like that and stopped playing.
>lying sack of shit saying the same fucking lie again
Let me fix that for the 6th time now:
"Hard CC is an imbalanced game mechanic that rewards the pressing of a Stun button more than actual play skill. The hard CC on Tyr's Fearless is included in this, and would be fixed (balanced) along with all other forms of hard CC."
Got it, moron? You can stop being dishonest now.
Not at all, I just have better arguments than 'if you don't like it, leave' or 'git gud, scrub' etc.
What's F-team supposed to mean other than guys who play Clash sometimes?
>he actually cares about Boring Mode with voice comm
>an 'optional' (ie - required) item with a 180-90s cooldown somehow magically means that hard CC doesn't reward the press of a button rather than skill
Nope. Beads are a shitty bandaid, nothing more. If Hard CC was reworked to actually be balanced, beads wouldn't even need to exist.
Same with Stealth and the dust/gem/ward stupidity in dota
Population's decent despite what the thread would make you think, people are just waiting for a new patch right now. You can find the pastebin here: http://pastebin.com/6ssZ5x7u
I plan on restarting the general once a patch hits because we'll actually have shit to discuss. Drop an email and I'll send you a key anon.
They did that with SMITE too.
Sent, enjoy the game anon. Expect a patch within a week or two, and don't forget to spread the love when you hit level 4 and get extra keys of your own!
You keep saying he'd be fixed but that's not what people are talking about. You say you refuse to okay Loki at all on principal, but you play Tyr. You say one thing, and then do another. Whatever "fixes" you talk about wanting to impliment don't change the fact that your principals don't extend to Tyr. He gets a pass from you, at least for now. That's hypocritical.
What the fuck why can't I quit games? I log out and when I log back in it puts me back into the same match I was trying to get out of.
>ragequitting instead of taking it up the ass like a real man
Because it thinks you accidentally DCd and tries to reconnect you. You have to wait for that match to end, and then when it does you'll have a deserter penalty that doesn't let you queue and gets longer the more matches you leave.
Just play the fucking game and don't be a bitch.
>2 gems away from another VP
Who do I send a shitty crayon drawing to for these 2 gems?
>I got kills so that means it wasn't my fault!
Play more than just one god, be mindful of your teams composition. Don't just chase kills around, you need to lane and keep buff camps on cooldown and help out in teamfights.
>accidentally killing gods meant for my ADC
THORAX AND ALA EAT YOUR HEART OUT
>assassins should support, not get kills
Also, those games were littered with d/c's, troll picks, and one individual who spammed VEL in teamfights while jumping. Fuck forced 50 and fuck you.
>Mfw I had an instant erection reading this post
Is it time?
There is no such thing as kill steal in my books. If I'm playing support and enemy is at 1% I'll use an abillity to kill him, who knows if my ads goes full retard and misses everything or his escape coolsdown, his Thor ults in etc and I'd expect that from my teammates
>Khumba (same as Baachus)
He's useless or rather to say he offers nothing that makes him a better pick then others or a nice. Bacchus getting Reaver is a heavy gold investment and you might as well get Voidstone or Spear or any other offensive item to counter foes like DR which is dirt cheap instead.
Kit is shit and can only be made good by inflating numbers high. Bad bases, scaling healing and is easy to counter.
The gold boost is pretty substantial.
>finally get mentioned in the general
>it's for being a baddie
Eh, at least I'm not full meme like Taro. I promise I'm getting better. Maybe next season I won't be a bronze shitter.
ill be like a Silver 3 shitter

What's that anime with Aphro having a laugh? I might actually watch it.

He's literally doing just that in the webm. Look at the black that you see when the lava starts hitting the ice. The ice is cooling and solidifying the magma. Did you think fire just magically beats ice instantaneously or something? I bet you think fire is instantly put out by water because water beats fire.
Go read a fucking text book and stop relying on pokemon.
Any suggestion for an Ares auto attack build ?
I was thinking
pen boots, demonic grip, mystical mail, pythagorem piece, witchblade, poly
and creepening curse as an active obviously. Initially I wanted a gem of iso for the heatlth and passive but since the guy can't swing his sword during abilities the slow is kind of pointless. Unless I just touch them with searing flesh to proc the gem and cancel it to follow with the sword. Any idea to make it better ?
>inb4 shit build because not meta sov heartward full tank and cdr
unconventional build provide a lot of fun trust me
It's going to be shit any way you do it. So go ahead and do whatever terrible item choice you want. You aren't going to get much out of it because ares's damage is through his chains, not autos.
There is a difference between doing an unconventional build and doing something just plain awful. There are a bunch of people who mass auras for fun, or just go straight for power, but autos is just stupid.
>You have to pander to me because I don't like a certain term and it reminds me of other things!
You are the cancer to the gaming community and you should kill yourself faggot.
You have to deal with video game lingo because people aren't going to change just for you. Lag used to mean a bad connection and now it means bad framerate or some shit.
>Any suggestion for an Ares auto attack build ?
>can't swing his sword during abilities
retard, you can auto when shackles are channeling
>unconventional build provide a lot of fun trust me
losing isn't fun though
Okay, Okay, spare me your garbage about "u dick suck da pros XD". If you REALLY REALLY want to. Shoes of Focus / Sovereignty / Heartward Amulet / Demonic Grip / Ethereal Staff / Situational Defense.
You absolutely need protections and HP, you are a completely immobile character who you have no decided wants to be in melee range 100% of the time, without protections youll die instantly like a retard.
I'll make it work, remember when the episcopal church told that bearded old fuck named copernic he was a crazy heretic because he demonstrated that the Earth was a sphere and orbiting around the sun ? Well I'm about to prove you wrong soon too mister pope of the meta dogma
I don't think you know what the word meta means. Building ares as a mage isn't meta either, it's just called using common sense and using the character's kit to it's fullest potential.
But whatever, enjoy your garbage builds, make sure you keep your match ID in your screen shots so we can all point out on how you won an arena game against a bunch of bronze teir or sub 30 players meaning everything you just did was pointless.
>pope of the meta dogma
I fucking hate when ego maniac shitters adopt this attitude. "Haha you are just a stupid mindless sheep pleb who just follow what the 'pros' build, how much do you spend on twitch subscriptions". As if building characters in a way that completely squanders their strengths is at all intelligent or innovative.
Like oh hey we got this guy ares who has outrageous ability damage if you just build a bit of penetration, and he has this ultimate that if you build CDR comes up faster than its counter so you can pull people to their death with it! I know, let's build attack speed, a stat that has no positive effect on any trait that make Ares good as a character.
If you're going to build something fucking retarded, at least try not to act superior for it.
>hey let me call you names because I'm not pleased with the fact that you don't take the game as seriously as I do
I'm not even going to look at what you suggested, I hope you had fun typing it
lol no, but ill try it someday
Yeah, but he still has a valid point. You can't pretend he wasn't right because he wants to be some ebin troll.
You can't auto through one of his abilities and that's pretty important seeing how it can do % health damage.
oh wow you mean because I didn't know something about a video game I'm a moron ? Im sorry I guess my life is ruined now for not being omniscient in terms of smite. I've never tried to auto during shackles because you have a 2s window to land another. I don't get you honestly, you get angered because I want to try something else in a media designed for entertainment. You're taking that shit way too serious, you forgot the point of what is a video game. Also why did you take the time to suggest a build after calling me a retard ? you sure have problems
that just proves how wrong you are right now, you have nothing to answer so you just resort to the "you were a molested child etc…" Just don't reply if something doesn't please you. The world was not designed for your autism anon
of course the troll master never misses an opportunity to do what he does, wether he has anything to do in the discussion or not it's his job to harvest the (you)s and trololololo you. problem ? XD u mad XD ?
well I'll build the way I fucking please you autistic nerd triggered by "muh optimum rational GAMING VIDEO GAMES ESPORT" don't forget to put it on your resume. pro serious gamer who get more stress and frustration from a game than actual fun.
ill even build fatalis, try to stop me nigger
Ama-chan a cute.
>Being THIS assravaged
building is all just about what you want to accomplish and using items to accomplish it.
There is definitely optimisation possible and certain ways that are 'better' than others, but there is a lot more leeway than most people allow.
There are people who will say 'building doesn't matter' because they can rely on mechanical skills to get by, but if they don't know how to build, their build can in most cases be optimised to do better, which is something I personally don't really understand why most people wouldn't want. Also, interestingly, most people who I've played with who stick to one bad build saying 'builds don't matter' are usually very defensive of their build.
If you're doing well as a mage with all cooldown items, that's fine, but saying 'it works for me' or something like that just doesn't do it for me, because there are objectively better ways to play which you're brushing off.
It gets down to the fact that smite is a PVP game, if you don't want to learn the intricacies of the game to the point you're being a detriment to your team, there's a point where you should consider taking responsibility.
The thing is that the build he's proposing IS useless. It's not unconventional, it's unusable.
Something like attack speed Loki is unconventional. Something like full mage Ymir is unconventional. Even auto attack Posiedon works because his build has something in it that helps his autos.
Ares build does not support auto attacks since in two moves you will not be able to auto attack. He gets no speed, damage, or any sort of utility for his autos. He's not even the right type of god for it either. He's an ability based tank with channel times. You wouldn't even be half as useless if you went auto attack Hercules since you're actually able to auto attack without giving up anything.
But of course, I'm just typing a wall of text for nothing and this will be replied with the ironic samefag telling me about how entitled he is to his bronze theorycrafting.
TL;DR: If the build will be useless, you're going to be useless too. You have to know your limits.
So, then you think this anon >>127502358 is not right?
I can't understand either why some people won't want optimize. I'm also a player I can't change my build (whatever is it) without a very good reason.
heeeere we go again. You just had to lead things to this point right ? Of course why would you reply to shit you're not involved in ? You need to show everybody your new reddit pics but first you need a pretext and here it is my friend here it is you replied to with >le implications. Im le mad go on proceed with the folder full of new smugness. I can't say I support that guy who's always pissed at you and just make ridiculously long insults post but I understand a little why he hates you.
Ama-chan kawaii yo
Ama-chan sekai ichi kawaii yo
HERE WE GO
This, I'd say if someone is playing any god that has even a single iota of utility to auto attacks, I won't fault them for building attack damage/utility.
Zhong gets double on hit procs, poseidon has an attack steroid, fuck, even Sylvanus has an interesting basic attack, etc. If you choose to build to that strength of a god and do it well, I won't fault you, but if you choose a god that is building without any auto attack utility, you're just being an idiot, you're trying to find a strategy when there is no strategic advantage in doing so.
I get building differently, Dirty Bubble is something certain gods benefit from, Certain guardians building power is effective too.
I think getting fancy once in a while is fun, but you need to always be playing to a strength, otherwise you're just an idiot trying to look smart.
I think she looks rather boring DESU.
She looks like just a lady samurai when you disregard the mirror & compared to other similar characters who are more visually interesting (Ao Kuang for example) she seems lacking in a thematic hook.
I get that they just released sol, but some sort of glowing skin or markings would've been cool to see... I guess there's still the possibility that her abilities or her ult will do something like that.
>tfw you become the TRUE UNLOSING RANGER
Fuck you so much NIS for not making a sequel.
>Every single god needs to be glowing and extra special cool and can't look normal in any way
I mean, why are you playing smite if all you want is a samurai?
Amaterasu is the god of the sun, if the thematic hook is "she looks japanese", then that's fucking boring.
Granted I don't know what her mirror will do, but from what I see, I'm underwhelmed, considering how interesting smite's recent gods have looked.
It seems to be fairly normal to portray Amaterasu as a beautiful but human woman.
Pic related was drawn by a Jap who draws mythological figures for a living.
Before someone brings it up, she looks more like Sol in P4 but Persona designs are always highly stylized and are done by a different artist
Here's a bunch of religious imagery: https://www.google.com/search?q=amaterasu&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjXvuaI1pHKAhUJGx4KHeIjBdoQ_AUIBygB&biw=1920&bih=969#tbm=isch&q=amaterasu+shinto
What I'm saying is that she was never going to look like Sol.
She's carrying the Three Sacred Treasures. That's not enough for you?
>the in-game VEW stretched for 10 seconds
And even if it did, my point is that there's no reason to make Amaterasu glowy and shit because even the Japs don't do that.
I want to kiss Artemis.
Every time Artemis is picked I go support and pick Aphrodite so I can kiss her no stop.
If we I am near an Artemis and another god I constantly switch my kisses so I can kiss Artemis more.
If I am solo and Art is in duo I will buy TP to wards so I can fulfill my kiss quota for Artemis when a gank is needed.
Every time Artemis tells me to rotate or go back to solo or whatever it just makes me wetter because I want to kiss her even more!
LOVE RESIGNS SUPREME.
Zeus floats on a cloud and holds a lightning bolt, he looks like a deity, the amaterasu design doesn't.
I think it boils down to the fact that she doesn't look at all like a deity. She looks like a character with the Three Sacred Treasures.
Aspects that I see missing in the Hirez design are the lack of a majestic flowing robe & the fact that the light that typically glows from behind her head is casting a shadow on her, which removes the whole 'radiant' aspect of her traditional design.
I didn't mean that she should look like sol, I mean she's the god of the sun and should therefore have some sort of glow to her in one way or another (not that she needs to literally be fire). The lightsource from behind her head shouldn't cast a shadow onto her for a start, it should illuminate her and give her the heavenly glow around her instead of casting her into a shadow.
Look, I'm not mad, it's a game, I just think the design is lacking and so I'm voicing the opinion.
>she doesn't look at all like a deity
A lot of Smite designs don't, though. Why put this one on a pedestal just because she's from your favorite pantheon?
>the lack of a majestic flowing robe
They ditched the robe because they want her to fight with the sword, so she'd look better with some armor.
>the light that typically glows from behind her head is casting a shadow on her, which removes the whole 'radiant' aspect of her traditional design.
Fair point, but this is because they moved the source of the light to incorporate the mirror into her design. I expect it will float behind her like a halo.
>Why put this one on a pedestal
This is the first time I saw the design, everyone was giving the opinion so I did too, I get that there are others that don't look like deities, but a god of war would thematically look different to a god of the sun.
>They ditched the robe because they want her to fight with the sword, so she'd look better with some armor.
It does make sense, but it's rare than there is a robed female sword fighter in a game & it would've been really interesting to see, instead of another samurai. Granted there are certain design constraints, but it's still kind of a shame.
>I expect it will float behind her like a halo
And like I said, we still don't know what her abilities do, but seeing from the icons, one is a light beam from the mirror & in the dash looking one, there seem to be red markings on her face, so they still might incorporate some sort of glow to her design (also to be fair, the image isn't an in game model, so the light may work completely different in game, or at least I hope so)

I have truly made the wrong choice
I overestimated my capacities and took too much classes, plus I had to commute since can't afford shit. No sleep plus forced isolation because of commuting crushed me.
If you ever get kids make sure to save so they can afford a place near uni
I was thinking about going to alaska and fish crabs, they die often in that field apparently. But I don't have the balls
30 minute clash.
i tried to surrender 6 times.
Ao Kuang was level 20 12 minutes in because my team feed him to many kills, actually everyone was fed as fuck.
I couldn't do anything because nobody on my team DID ANYTHING, i took down 2 phoenixes, attacked the titan... i managed to get their phoenix before ours were down and they still didn't do nothing but die...
i've lost all hope in humanity also of course they were fucking mexicans.

I'm pretty sure you can guess what happened.
Why does Devo gauntlets has to make 75 stacks while Trans only needs 50?
Why does Warlocks Sash has to make 100 stacks while Book of Thoth only needs 75?
Trans stacks matter. People like to pretend mana isn't important but staying out on the field longer without having to fear becoming prime gank bait by being an OOM ADC but you can really notice how extensive your mana pool gets for that early to mid transition. Outside of that small area of time, mana isn't important, but it helps.
They made devo stacks higher because fuck you, everyone keeps using devo as their core stacking item but hi-rez don't want you using heartseeker. So if you want a good stacking item, you are stuck in lane longer.
HOW THE FUCK DO I DEAL WITH THANATOS IN THIS FUCKING GAME MODE?!?!?!
ALL HE DOES IS HAVE SPRINT 24/7/365, GETS TO CHUNK 50% OF MY HEALTH NO MATTER HOW MUCH FUCKING DEFENSE I HAVE AND IS TANKER THAN FUCKING EVERY WARRIOR COMBINED
I'M SICK OF THIS SHIT!!!!
>landing whole tyr kit on a half health hunter doesn't even kill them
is this "you'll regret picking me" the god ? Hitting his abilities is hard enough, but it doesn't do jackshit besides bringing someone to your team, but there's khepri and athena for that.
Is he an assassin in disguise ? I mean the cc reduction passive, the double dash, leap ult and extra power/defense for stances. What if he was in fact an assassin meant to be built with damage and movement speed instead of tankyness ?
> lose a match of joust because hey, I just got this game and I'm still learning how to fight against so many different gods.
> enemy team starts talking shit and making fun of people's builds on my team
Why badmouth when you have won? Isn't it enough for your ego that your perfectly synergized three man team of tryhards beat a new player?
>Is he an assassin in disguise ?
kinda. He's one of the few warriors that can actually do work if you build him with like 3 damage items. But, full defense Tyr works. Focus on indirect damage like mystical/nemean/underworld and just try and stay alive in the front with your heal, and setting up or peeling for teammates with your 1.
>Hitting his abilities is hard enough
Are you kidding? Tyr's assault 1 combos int your 2, your ult has a huge radius and your other stance are a dash and cone that come out so fast.
offensive fearless is very miss-able. It's really slow and super easy to side step so you need to catch the opponent by surprise or force them to get too close to you which can be difficult.
are you trying to catch them in the second half of the dash? Fearless is used as a melee-range ability, if you aren't landing it, you really have to be doing something wrong. None of Tyr's abilities should be giving you difficulties in landing them, they're fairly straightforward.

B. Anime Combackers
C. Special Snowflake picks/builds
D. Pot heads who play for the background noise
E. Tryhards who want to make it to the big leagues and make money off the game
F. Weirdos who actually enjoy the game

Geb can do what Athena can´t.
He truly cares
>Do you not want love and care in your life anon?
I want to be bullied
treated like trash
Just a walking dildo with a mouth.
Enjoy getting pierced by Athena's dash and become nothing more than one of her passive's stacks then.
Truly I can't be seen without love in your life.
Be merry while being miserable anon.
I wish you the best and I will always love you.
What's the general thought on Amaterasu's class? Gotta be either a warrior, assassin or melee Mage. I was assuming she'd be a mage until finding out she's a full on samurai. I was assuming Susanoo would be a warrior as well though
