Boy I don't know, tons of highlights though. Going through now.
Don't believe his memes

Superior breast waifu coming through.
I think what's ridiculous is how bad EU is at this game
And how bad my aim is
Hellsíng with the hype plays
Lolfag are just jealous that Smite have the superior waifu
Well guys, all in all, the 1v1 tournament went pretty well. There were some technical hiccups, but I think the viewers and participants had fun (except fred :o). Out of our 25 sign-ups, 16 of you actually showed up. Thanks to everyone for participating and watching, and special thanks SethPhalange for providing our lavish prize-pool and to CopperMeme and Alen for casting for 6 hours or whatever the fuck.
Results are here: challonge com/smiggen
Thanks Cracky for the Convention Tyr skin, I am now complete.
What on earth does talent have to do with hard CC?
Just so you guys know, she married her brother, Tsukuyomi.
>What on earth does talent have to do with hard CC?
A talented game designer realizes (as the devs of Magic have) that mechanics that remove a player's ability to do anything in response, and allow them to be destroyed with impunity are toxic, imbalanced, horrible game mechanics.
Talentless game designers simply copy over said game mechanics from the Warcraft III mod their game is based on (dota), which in turn copy/pasted the same mechanic from pen&paper Dungeons and Dragons, which is from the 1970's.
Talentless game designers continue to perpetuate, outdated, imbalanced game mechanics.
Smart and talented ones do not.
>mechanics that remove a player's ability to do anything in response
You can buy beads you dumb shit
You can also dodge the stun. I don't think there are any targeted stuns in Smite. There are hardly any targeted abilities at all.
>the devs of Magic
Isn't Thoughtseize practically mandatory in constructed? Not to mention they keep printing new mill cards.
Incest with gods is ok because they are above mortal shit like DNA.
Loki fucked a giant and sired Fenrir. So either genetics isn't a thing with gods or Loki was cucked by the family dog.
>Some of the jötnar are attributed hideous appearances – claws, fangs, and deformed features, apart from a generally hideous size. Some of them may even have many heads, such as Þrívaldi who had nine of them, or an overall non-humanoid shape; so were Jörmungandr and Fenrir, two of the children of Loki.
Yet when jötnar are named and more closely described, they are often given the opposite characteristics. Many of the jötnar are described as beautiful, Skaði being described as the “bright bride of the gods". Although some jötnar are said to have been of considerable size, many were of no difference in size than that of the Æsir or Vanir.
Depend of the giant.
The disarm made him an even better boxer, it's just the lack of mobility that kills him. Maybe make his hives take 2 AAs to kill since I can't think of any other pet (Arachne, Ah Puch corpses, Vulcan's turret, cats, Baka minions, hell even wards) that go down in one hit.
>playing coop with my boyfriend all day
Fun, but it's driving me crazy how most of the characters I want to play are locked for a week or two until I get these gems.
Why do people get butthurt about premades? Why wouldn't playing in a group give you an advantage over a bunch of randos? This is the nature of team games, not just MOBAs.
I think matchmaking is supposed to segregate 5-mans anyway.
Um, somewhat confused now.
In order to unlock a god it says I need around 200 gems as well as 5000 favor.
Well, I haven't played long enough to really know what role I prefer, but it's probably support. I've been playing Neith mainly though until I can unlock something.
rat is a niche pick honestly, every once in a while I get a jungler speaking in some obscure danish dialect who whipes the floor with the whole team as vamana/r@/arachne or some other "F tier" god.
Baka's ult is severely underestimated in conquest honestly. A target area that cripples is more than a death sentence for the backline if you a have poseidon or a zeus. Him and nemesis just require coordination with the team. But since every main jungler is a "special ninja don't need your help snowflake" they get put at the bottom of the assassin list.
And naturally there was no indication in the game whatsoever about that.
>In order to unlock a god it says I need around 200 gems as well as 5000 favor.
Nope, one or the other.
You're better off just buying the god pack, though. It's $30 and it gives you all current and future gods.
If you're determined to do it F2P you should be grinding the first wins of the day on each game mode.
>there was no indication in the game whatsoever about that.
Yes there is. Click on unlock and it will ask which currency you want to use. Same for recolor skins, icons, and anything else you can buy with favor.
Satisfy my autism by putting Smite on indefinite development so that I can add almost every god known from each of the current pantheons and some others, starting with the most vital missing members. Add focus on transferring all of the old mastery skins to the new format, and start moving skin development from wacky things to more "lore-friendly" ones.
That's how HiRez gets money though, if you cut that, you have a dead game. Don't be assmad about cosmetics, anon.
No. They already stated they won't. It sucks, since seeing Micheal, Gabriel, Asmodeus, Beelzebub, etc. would be fucking great, but it's not happening.
Todd did say he'd love to add in the Flying Spaghetti Monster though.
They said they were going to avoid those but went with "eehhhh" when asked about the Four Horsemen. So very unlikely. The closest we'd be able to get would be Zoroastrian and West Semitic pantheons, but even those have a near-zero chance.
What? No such thing!
Reminder that the better Jouster isn't the one who performs better.
THIS ENTIRE TOURNEY WAS A MEME I DEMAND A RECOUNT
Really sad to see the Mexibros didn't show.
I FOUND BD
>Restore rat and guan yu to their pre patched states
Anon I have enough cancer already thank you.
Have you ever seen or talked to a religious person in real life? They're usually crazy or retarded. Can you imagine the backlash that could happen if they try to put in an Abrahamic pantheon?

Any other highlight requests people want? Sorry if you had hype moments during a match I wasn't streaming fellas.
Admittedly I lost against the first one since I never 1v1 against him. Bought Shield of the Underworld thinking it would help but I probably should have just went with Aegis and eventually he just outleveled me. The other two were ez pz
>You can buy beads you dumb shit
A single optional(required) item being the only means of dealing with an imbalanced game mechanic is pretty much the definition of shit-tier game design.
>You can also dodge the stun.
You can dodge most every attack. This could be used to rationalize pretty much any imbalanced game mechanic.
>Not to mention they keep printing new mill cards.
And? The Magic equivalent of Stealth and Stun is Hand destruction and Land destruction, and to an extend, blue Control. All of them have been toned down greatly in the last few years, because they're imbalanced and plain un-fun to play against, because they remove your ability to even play the game at all.
Serious question how do you guys play this game? There's way too much CC. Even with beads its almost unbearable.
You're either CC'd or silenced. That's the entire game
>Don't be assmad about cosmetics, anon.
I'm assmad because I want to buy cosmetics and HiRez won't let me. They keep putting skins I want in chests. I'm not going to pay 400 gems for a 1/8 chance of getting the skin I want.
>Passive - Fedora: All Fedora marked gods deal less damage and take more damage
>Skill one - Swag: Athiest throws a fedora, catching on the head of the first enemy god hit. It passes through all minions and monsters and they each are addorned with a fancy hat. This ability is low cooldown and low-medium damage.
>Skill two - Apathy: Atheist becomes a non believer, stripping all enemy immortals of their power. Enemy gods around him deal 0 damage with attacks and abilities for two seconds but CC and executes still apply. Fedora'd enemies that have recently tipped due to being effected by M'Lady take damage as well and are affected by the fedora for one extra second
>Skill three - Rant: Atheist begins to freely express his views on the hollowness of human life. Un Fedora'd gods in his voice range are disabled due to laughing uncontrollably but are still able to move. Fedora'd gods in his voice range are rooted due to uncontrollable nodding in agreement but are still able to attack. Fedora'd female gods are both disabled due to laughter and instantly repelled away from him due to disgust if they are in his immediate vicinity.
>Ultimate "M'Lady": Atheist tips his own fedora causing a chain reaction within other fedoras in within a large radius of him. Enemy Fedora'd gods take damage and begin to tip their own fedoras and which resonate to enemy gods and minions nearby. Enemies affected instantly gain a fedora and immediately begin to tip them, again resonating to enemies near by them. Fedora's gained this way and already existing fedoras last for one second after being tipped before they are lost.
>be huge buyfag
>decide to check Smite merch and see a pretty solid Bellona figure
What the fuck? Why is it so fucking expensive? Quality alone it looks like a $80 figure.
Just imagine that like any other cat she gets into heat just like them.
All her cats from her ult are male.
Her cats target any bleeding foe because only the scent of blood overrides the male cats instinct to mate with Bastet when she is in heat.
All the different Bastet skins and recolour aren't Bastet but her daughters who are the result of when she has succumbed to her cat lust and "accidentally" ulted in an area far from prying eyes to leash her immense lust for the spiky D.
Not related but I hope there will be a Tengu god for the Japanese pantheon and they make it a her so we can have a harpy.
I know I'm going to trigger that one or two anons that hate monster girls but we need more monster girls.
Cats suck btw, dog girl when
Dog girl: Lyssa
Male Tengu: Sōjōbō
Fem Tengu: Amanozako
What we really need is more demon skins
We can get Touhous and straight up Japanese folklore too
>The remove janus and gve his kit to yukari

The devs are too talentless to remove imbalanced game mechanics like CC from their copy/pasted Warcraft III mod game. see >>128817774
Unforunately, a horde of fanboy zombies will defend Hi-Rez's shitty game design.
And then especially stupid responses like this one:>>128826968
>CC them back
>while you can't do anything
Ah Taro, the one who does not want to improve himself, but wants the game to change completely for him. Go back to league, do us a favor.
>Takes 5 minutes to open the launcher
>Finally get to the log in screen
>Cant fucking type in my password in the box because it wont show the typing line thing indicating that i can type
I love this new patch.
1.) Remove Stealth from the game entirely, reword gods that abuse Stealth accordingly.
2.) Rework Stun and other hard CC mechanics to actually be balanced, have counterplay, have multiple counters, and reward skill rather than pressing a CC button.
3.) Virtually all skills will have a telegraph, so OP garbage like Nox's AoE silence and Posei's pool will finally be balanced.
4.) Make Conquest not a boring shitstain by adding more gold/sec and continuing to improve it from there.
5.) Everyone gets a permanent 'beads' (CC-clearing) ability on a 30s recast. Tweak the recast timer from there.
All I can think of off the top of my head.
The final thing to do would be to watch profits go up as Smite increases player retention due to it being more fun to play, and rewarding skill rather than CC-spam.
Why anyone hasn't done an edit like
>On all levels except physical, I am Tyr
>[Fearless into power cleave]
League is even worse, and dead to me regardless due to them making Tryndamere no longer fun to play.
>>Ah Taro, the one who does not want to improve himself, but wants the game to change completely for him.
To state this accurately:
>Ah Taro, the one who wants games to reward risk and skill in a balanced way, and who deplores objectively imbalanced game mechanics as a result.
The game should change (for the better) for everyone. It has nothing to do with me.
> Remove Stealth from the game entirely, reword gods that abuse Stealth accordingly.
Just add counter-stealth shit so we can keep the actual gameplay variation. Sentry wards see stealth, certain god abilities reveal stealth, etc.
> Everyone gets a permanent 'beads' (CC-clearing) ability on a 30s recast.
Basically the new relics/trinkets system that's going to be implemented if all goes well. I don't think the cd will be that low though.
> Everything else
Get good faggot.
>duo is winning lane
>14-5 and 2 gold furry secured
>hooray for matchmaking sparing me this time
>oh boy I was wrong
>sylvanus asks xbal "if he can get a kill" because he never lets him get the last hit

>sylvanus starts to shit talk in spanish
>xbal also dcs for whatever the fuck reason
>mid and jungler stay in spawn and spam ver at me for dying to a 4 man gank
This is actually funny, no matter what happens I'm always on the wrong side.
A few things I forgot:
>reword gods that abuse Stealth accordingly.
should be 'rework' not 'reword'
6.) Fix the god-awful shitty matchmaking algorithm and fire whoever coded it.
7.) Add a blind pick ranked mode for people that find waiting 10 minutes in queue/banning/fighting over roles to be boring as absolute fuck, since it is.
8.) Add some notable gods who are missing (Hera, Heimdallr, etc.)
I may add more.
>tfw matchmaking puts you against a level 3 and others i didn't even bother check up
it was a fucking brisk in the park, like i was dancing to my music and just killing people.
It has plenty to do with you. Not every game has to accessible to the lowest common denominator like you who is LITERALLY incapable of factoring in enemy skills that are powerful into their strategy for play. The game is made for people that are fine with the use of stuns as they add a new dynamic layer to combat, in the sense that suns can turn fights, be used for ganks, or even be threatened for use to make space.
What you want is the equivalent of a game for toddlers. I'm not saying that this game is super hardcore and that I'm edgy and cool for liking it that way, what I'm saying is that we dont need more drooling sacks of shit like yourself here trying to perpetuate the idea that less types of skills or dynamic abilities is good because it will bring more people in. More people =/= better.
>Just add counter-stealth shit
Stealth will already have counter-stealth built into the mechanic, since it will actually take skill to sneak up on someone, rather than pressing a button. The other person will have to be aware of their surroundings, just like real life. Hence, counterplay.
>Sentry wards see stealth
How could I forget this one?
9.) lolWards are removed from the game entirely. They're a tedious and boring sub-game and were always shitty. They won't be needed to detect any Stealth gods since Stealth is now balanced.
>Basically the new relics/trinkets system that's going to be implemented
Maybe Hi-Rez is improving.
>Get good faggot.
Go sit with the other token fanboys.
Freya will always be there to bully you.
Even in your dreams, she will bully you.
Flying spahgetti monster ideas
>His 1 shoots a meatball, enemy gets meh amount of damage taken and reduced mana per second
His passive is either
>Leaves a trail of sauce behind him that gives friendlies hps and enemies reduced hps
>Friendlies can take a bite out of you, giving them a good amount of health
>One ability just shoots a meatball in a straight line ahead of you
>Ultimate is spahgetti minefield, you can place meatballs in any part of the map you can see (you just click on the map and it takes a second or two to get there, then activate)
>whenever an opponent walks over it, it explodes with noodles thrown out everywhere like confetti, person who walked over it takes a certain amount of damage, people who walk near it take less damage but the noodles ensnare them and gives them slow for 3 seconds
Open to suggestions
So I found these and need to update them.
Then make a Jap one.
>tfw the Greek versions of gods are more favored than Roman versions
>It has plenty to do with you.
I'm simply the messenger. You're trying to make this about my 'taste' or something when it's simply not.
>The game is made for people that are fine with the use of stuns
They're fine with Stun because it's been copy/pasted into every pseudo RPG-based game for the last 20 years, and it's all they've known. It never had any place in 3D gaming space in its current form, however. Again, any mechanic that allows someone to kill you with impunity while you sit there and do NOTHING is absolute shit game design and gameplay.
>they add a new dynamic layer to combat, in the sense that suns can turn fights, be used for ganks, or even be threatened for use to make space.
All of those very things can be applied to a Stun mechanic that is actually BALANCED that also allows for counterplay, with multiple counters to it.
>What you want is the equivalent of a game for toddlers.
I literally just want a balanced game with balanced game mechanics. (and a decent UI and combat engine, this has the worst I've ever seen in any MMO or MOBA).
Fixing Stealth and Stun won't reduce the complexity or skill needed in the game, it will simply make the game reward skill more than pressing a Stun/Stealth button.
>recognizing Scyllas voice
>Stalker Scylla gets her head smashed into a wall and apologizing that she didnt die
They should add skins that change your pantheon into the equivalent god, maybe with a voice change and costume of course
>Zeus -- Jupiter
>Mercury -- Hermes
>Chaac -- Tloloc (Aztec)
You can just stop typing altogether. Stop trying. Make your own game or stop, your ideas are bad.
You mean also how we only had one hour to check in, and some of us had mentioned that the checking in process didn't make sense, and some of possibly were still sleeping when the email was sent out to check in. Or that for 2 weeks people had expressed issues with the tourney, even the fact that it was being released along side Dragon's Dogma.
But sure, if it's only going to favor everyone on the east coast, I can see why your retort would be "why sign up". Not because it was poorly planned from the start.
Debating between Freya, Sobek and Chiron. Which god should I snag with my favor? I prefer Xing/Xbal/AMC/Ah for the most part. Wanted Freya to cheese in 1v1 Joust, but I have improved enough to be able to play semi-decently.
>He wields two donkeys
>As he uses his ground pound move Smashmouth starts playing and picks up where it left off the next time it is cast
>His stun makes Donkey spit out one of his lines from the movie
>His ult wall is a layer of an onion
I hate myself for thinking this up.
>I only play cute girls.
I don't follow
To answer your question though, yes. Athena is really the only serious female support for now.
The fact that the Japanese pantheon isn't restricted to just Shinto mythology makes the second post irrelevant. Why would anything Touhou need to fit in to Shinto if it doesn't have to in the first place? What is your point even?
>Athena is a model of beauty
No, she's a model of intelligence, wisdom, and tactics, making her an ugly nerd.
All/most Touhous are (And are based off of as well) Youkais.
Where did you think they came from? Most JRPGs very very heavily use not only their own folklore but folklore and mythos of other places too. Touhou is no exception to this either and neither is anime and shit.
her accent is stupid enough that she's cute, in the sort of way that a lobotomized cat is cute.
and, well, fuck.

because ADCs are weak as fuck compared to guardians and warriors, and if you weren't a pleb shit you would realize this. In other MOBAs they shred tanks. In this game, if an Osiris/Bellona/Xing dives your hunter they have no chance.
They really are. Every good team in the SWC was doing everything they could to avoid picking actual carries instead going for the casters like chiron, neith and sol who have shitty lategame DPS but have good early pressure.

Why is Scylla crying? Did she get slapped, by who? Mercury? Ymir? Bellona? Xing Tian? Ullr? Amaterasu? Thor? Tyr? Athena? Awilix? Perhaps she wasn't slapped as a punishment FOR BEING SUCH A SHITTY GOD?
THAT STUPID LITTLE BRAT WHAT'S THE POINT OF HER SHE'S JUST A STUPID CHILD WHO's only WORTH is to be BULLIED BY every single god in every single pantheon in the history of SMITE EVER.
someone with a brain? Here's someone who agrees with me and happens to be a pro player
>What gods and items do you think are in need of balance changes and why?
>ShadowNightmare: Every Warrior/Guardian god and every item that gives defence. As it stands now, you can purchase bulks of defence at such a cheap price (Breastplate of Valor for example) and become unkillable. This is due to the protection cap being extremely high combined with the lack of penetration within the game. There aren't enough viable penetration items in the game to counter the bulk stacking of defence, which results in Warriors becoming unkillable and killing every carry in the game, as seen at SW

>Is every Japanese god going to get a world renown Japanese weapon
I don't know man, do European gods use European weaponry?
There are a number of Japanese weapons.
The traditional weapon of the samurai is the bow. In melee, they preferred the spear over the sword, which was largely ceremonial. They usually taught their wives and daughters to fight with the naginata (essentially a long pole with a sword blade on the end) because it compensated for the difference in height between a woman and a male assailant.
Oni traditionally carry extremely heavy clubs called kanabo.
There are also different styles of sword; the katana is only eight or so centuries old.
If we're really lucky we'll get an ADC with a matchlock (instead of another fucking bow) but I wouldn't count on it since I'm pretty sure Oda Nobunaga was never deified.

A veritable work of its time, Taroposting is an author’s input on the contemporary attitude so critical of game designers that they’re often not given a chance at all, a window through which we see the designer’s wish to move his audience, as well as frustrations at the vessels of these emotions being ignored or enjoyed as “low art”.
Attempts at analyzing Taroposting’s implications and unraveling its messages necessitate great concentration and effort, which is further exacerbated when so much of my blood flows elsewhere than my brain when enjoying this general.
Taroposting is a journey, an embodiment of a search fundamental to our humanity yet abandoned by contemporary society; Taroposting is the eternal quest for perfection. As philosophers and "understanders of strategy" alike vainly peruse the void of their hollow souls for an abstract ideal, they achieve naught save for casting the community into desecration. Delving further into the hypothetical and the metaphysical only reinforces the misbelief that true beauty lies within. “Homosexuality,” Plato wrote, “is regarded as shameful by barbarians and by those who live under despotic governments, Both of which apply to contemporary society.
"Quod culus tibi purior salillo est, nec toto decies cacas in anno; atque id durius est faba et lapillis. Quod tu si manibus teras fricesque, non umquam digitum inquinare posses.”
As tremors of mirth reverberate through my corpus; my finite faculties discharged; my soul emancipated. Such is the power of Taroposting. Taroposting is not everyone’s cup of tea. It is perhaps best treated as a lengthy parable. For the actively dismissive it will hardly make much of an impression other than being an ordinary poster with a cheap attempt at improving the game. For others with willing ears and eyes to match, it can be a novel take on the values and motivations surrounding the genre.
Meh at Conquest.
People don't buy actives in arena so abuse her power.
Always pair with tanks.
Hades catches someone in his pillar of agony

Xing threw some people
Athena taunted someone
For any other occasion
SILENCE and Root
There have been numerous undisputable masterpieces in /vg/ posters, such as the strikingly visionary classic HDFred or his medieval counterpart ShadowCzar. Taroshima will not join their ranks; his surface is too generic, his presentation too provocative and his messages too obscure. His take on the abysmal is an illumination in one person’s despair, but a paroxysm of another’s perversion. He will remain underground – treasured by the most avant-garde among intellectuals for its edifying if horrifying insight into the fundaments of human morality. Philistines and self-proclaimed critics alike will shun Taroposting, but you can’t fault them for that. It takes wisdom to appreciate the subtleties, and courage to side with the unpopular opinion. Sed domi maneas paresque nobis novem continuas fututiones.
Superficially, Taroposting appears to be something which caters to the most proletarian among men; aloof critics dismiss it as such often without a second thought. As complacent as these self-proclaimed "understanders of game design" are, they fail to realize that Taroposting is a cult classic, a chef d'oeuvrea buried under false preconceptions and unfounded criticism. This gem is hidden because it does not shine; it is buried because its tone is that of abyssal black. Taroposting pries into to the darkest corners of our subconscious, the most visceral of our cognition, the most carnal of our urges, and the most primal of our instincts.
As brilliantly put by Cattalus, "Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo"; to describe the artistic qualia of Taroposting would be to describe music to the deaf, color to the blind or beauty to the philistine. The experience speaks for itself, and it is up to the anon to fully absorb its depth. Its sublimity will ever be debated yet always remain objectively irrefutable; the fundamental insight it provides into human and perhaps animalistic nature may shape the basis of game design for centuries to come.
>to describe the artistic qualia of Taroposting would be to describe music to the deaf
You're speaking words to my soul anon
This shit is more deep than Asa Akira's tweets
>buried under false preconceptions and unfounded criticism
This is fucking Haiku, poetry level shit.
>4. I hate laning because I'm a shit kid
Everyone should honestly ignore Taro
>I'd rather have one of those two and have them be defensive
Too bad that's impossible.
Both gods are so easy to wreck in the early game in different ways. They are essentially full of holes that are so innate in their severity that they can't perform in their role at all!
Jesus man, they are really trying hard to make jungle as unfun as possible and make the ADC lane as slow as fuck.
Like fuck, there is no reason to not have level 3 beads on start anymore and it literally ruins any early game play of any CC heavy god. Ares is worthless now with like 80% of any early lane duo play.
If you don't enjoy laning then why do you play conquest
There are a bunch of other game modes that are mostly or entirely fighting and you're demanding that Conquest be changed to be more like those modes because you want to play Conquest but don't actually like it.
I don't know what possesed Ashur to draw Nemesis with her helmet off, but I like it.
>there is no reason to not have level 3 beads on start anymore and it literally ruins any early game play of any CC heavy god
League has a summoner spell called Cleanse that nobody ever takes because there are better choices
We can't say that beads will be a guaranteed pick-up at level 1 until we see the other available relics.
>got angry at this retarded post
>went to go type up a response in the vain of "you dont just sit in lane you fucking retard, you fight each other and fight over jungle camps"
>in my realization of its futility I finally understood the beauty that taroposting possesses
Taroposting makes me feel human. To be angry, to want to lash out at chaos, stupidity, and twisted injustice. But I realize I can not, and it shows me how cold and large the universe is. And that is profound. Thank you taroshima.
Nemesis with her helmet off is basically Hinata
Osiris is very tanky, but the trick to utilizing him correctly is realizing that his kit is used to stick to his opponents. He's more of a lane bully than a team fighters, but he's not the worst teamfighter out there.
I disagree, I think
the expression is a combination of both jubilation that she was able to make a man cum and also longing for approval as to whether or not she did a good joband I doubt that's intentional, but it's a great accident.
Loki used to until his VU. I kinda hate that it looks like a lame recolor now when it wasn't just a recolor before. His face was hidden in his hood so you could only see spooky eyes. I loved it.
Bellona's recolor is nice if you like pink hair like me. He Bo's looks bretty good since he's 100% water. I'm not on smite right now so I can't remember others I liked.
>More robot skins
Fuck off, I'm so tired of robot skins.
>good favor skins
Oh wow, a single recolor that isn't gold/diamond cancer and three fucking exclusives you can't even get.
Yes I mad I love Fenrir.
If anything Anubis has a lot of skins you can get easy.
League and smite are two different beasts entirely.
Lane length is very small in league, and their blink can be used in combat. Ours cannot, and beads are literally used for everything that would kill you with bullshit CC. CC is pretty minor in league anyways, CC plays a more important and more "you will die from this." than what league has.
It's a good thing I'm back on my main computer.
How is this an /smgen/ meme. You can't even really filename it for this game either.
Combat blink can be used in combat and has a much shorter cooldown than Flash, even when you stack the summoner spell CDR mastery with the Distortion enchantment.
>CC is pretty minor in league anyways,
Admittedly I don't play a whole lot of League, but there's plenty of hard CC in the game and it can be debilitating in teamfights. I guess there isn't anything quite like Hades's or Ares's ults. Well, there's Galio, but nobody plays him.
Neither game has CC on the level of Dota.
>Lane length is very small in league
That's funny, I started playing League again recently and I felt like the opposite was true. Admittedly, this might be because the third-person controls means that movement doesn't just feel like waiting the day it does in League. I haven't bothered to measure it out or anything.
I wonder, if combat blink cost zero gold, would it be a more common pick-up? I don't think League players would take Flash so often if you had to sacrifice 1/3 of an item for it.
Listen up cheesebrain I'm gonna rain hellfire down on your fucking house. I'm gonna skin your cat and light your lawn on fire. I'm gonna eat all your fucking cheerios and dump your milk on the floor and there's nothing you can do to fucking stop me you smegma-eating piece of subhuman garbage.
Why is duo que shitters almost always confirmed to be bad /smgen/
>Shitposting this hard
>Actually be this retarded and not some troll.
Man it's a shame shitposters allow your type to post freely and everyone just assumes you are some kid playing an act when you really are that fucking stupid.
>enemy team shoves their hard cocks into me even as i beg them to stop
>lay on the floor defeated with ropes of cum everywhere
>using google as a verb
Shame on you those faggots make Comcast's customer support seem competent.
I legitimately never noticed. I'm sorry, pham
>I should be calling it Goo Gull instead of saying Goo gl
Thanks for bringing this to my attention
No but seriously, why would you inadvertantly advertise for a company that puts people on hold for four hours only to tell them they don't *actually* have phone support?
I'm honestly not even sure what you're trying to even say in this sentence
Are you telling me all those are caster ADCs? Because Ullr would be the only one that fits that category, maybe AMC a bit.
Are you telling me all those ADCs are avoided ones? Because Rama, Xbal, and AMC are definitely not avoided or at least Xbal isn't since he is proclaimed one of the best ADCs
>Mfw I actually look at the OP to see what's wrong
You sneaky fuck
Players, including you and me, would either bitch, commit mass suicide or uninstall.
You're in the club chillin' when this guy slaps your waifu's ass.
Do you guys ever get a few losing matches, and then suddenly you play a match where the entire enemy team is absolute garbage? It's like the game is saving up bad opponents for you, whilst spreading out your bad teammates
