Smite is now in open beta!

Anyone else gonna play this? It's basically a third-person version of League of Legends or DotA 2. Very fun imo.

Open Beta Annoucement:




League of Legends vs SMITE:

Hmm, I may give this a try if it is really H&S with WSAD movement
Never liked the point & click RTS reminiscent MOBAs

What? This won't be F2P? I hope this is alpha footage. The animations are horrible.

BTW if you want to play a FIRST person (shooter) moba game, play Super Monday Night Combat or just Monday Night Combat. Botha re F2P and on Steam.

NVM: it'll be free to play, in that case, I'll try it, I guess.

The footage is alpha footage, and it will be f2p (pre-ordering gives you a starter pack). I do agree that the animations are pretty bad, but its old footage, so I guess we'll see.

EDIT:
My interest in Moba/Dota games has always been dulled because of click-to-move and the top down camera, so I'm really interested in Smite. :D

I made a thread yesterday! :(

However, now the site has the pre-order and all. Tempted to just buy it, love what they did with tribes. The animations are pretty terrible it seems. However, most of their other visuals I've had mixed feelings about. We'll see at june I guess...

Also I don't like that all those kind of games copy the warcraft aesthetics... dota 2 is okay because it's the sequel to dota after all, but this and all the others? not that I don't like them but c'mon..

I recently purchased this and have been enjoying it a HELL of a lot. MOBA skill design has always been pretty good I think and putting it in a more mobile 3rd person space works well. MNC is nice and all, but I hated the balance in SMNC. But this? Really fun. Blocking an enemy from backing away with Ymir is really fun. Ganking someone as Bastet is fun as hell. At the moment there are a few things that need some balance work (Artemis being one of the strongest gods by far) and the animations are still a little iffy. But the core gameplay, my god is it fun. My last game as Bastet I went 22/7 and it was a long game, ended up having to take out all of their phoenixes to end it.

Dislike the animations, but I suppose it could be good for people that enjoy moba games. I never liked them, so I'll give it a pass.

After playing the beta, I feel GW2 can learn a whole lot from Smite. Mechanically speaking, I think Smite performs much better as a pvp game. There really is no comparison.

Aye. The abilities I use really matter and have great synergy with eachother. Sobek is probably my favorite, a tank with magic damage output. Combat feels weighty, even with the more skirmishy gods.

You are comparing a MOBA game with a MMO...

Actually, he was comparing the PvP features of one game to the other.

I was exited to finally get into beta, played a number of matches and was very disappointed. Aside from the heroes and camera position there is nothing new in the game. Same ol dota from wc3.

Do you get to customize the skill layout or some kind of mastery tree in smite? If not, its naturally going to feel like things have more synergy right off the bat. MOBA's are like this whereas each character has their own way of filling their role. Just asking, because it's being compared to an MMO that boasts tons of customizations where you make your own kind of synergies.

I've been slightly wanting to try this. No idea if I'd like it to play more than just a few rounds of it.

Pretty sure there's no tree. Really fun game surprisingly.

Sincerely I've been wondering why hasn't Anet added a MOBA like format to its games since GW1.

Imho the 3rd person shooter camera style is quite refreshing for the MOBA genre. But still, I can't help it but feel a bit angry about all these MOBA games that are starting to flood the market. Where were these companies when we only had poor old DoTA to play?

These days a new MOBA game is released every month or so and I wonder why... maybe because all these respectable gentlemen were waiting to see if the new model would be successfull and then jump in the market?

LoL is flawed, definitely, but it's a pioneer. First they proved that F2P games (browser games excluded) can be successfull financially and then they opened the way for massive esports events. Where was SMITE, DoTA 2 and the others back then? But ofcourse none would imagine that such a game could make serious money when u had WoW with its monthly fee etc (none except maybe Icefrog, cheers for him :P )

Sry if I sound a bit harsh. It's not fanboyism: I saw the same thing happen after WoW hit 10 mil players or earlier when CS was keeping us awake all night. I just like pioneers and inovators (cheers Anet). Give me something rlly fresh and new not an enhanced version of an already tested formula.

Imho ofc and always so I dodge any possible flaming ;)

I saw a beta trailer a few months ago and I was quite unimpressed. Looked like a clone with a gimmick to me, and not a pretty one at that.

Mango, what would it be a clone of?

It is pretty fun to me, the makers are same as Tribes both well organised cash shops with game cash instead of real cash if you want. Very fun, however small studio so that's the only downfall.

Played 2 games so far, won both. Only played the one God, dislike how the others play to be honest.

According to TotalBiscuit he says it will be a E-Sport however I do not believe this due to Tribes is failing at E-Sports and do not believe or agree with everything he says however he gets news / alpha testing of games and Q&A of companies which usually come out better then say GameSpot would.
