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.
