Good game bought the god pack been playing it since early beta. Gets boring quick unlike league/dota/hon though if you don't have people to play with.

Solo wise it's pretty much unplayable imo. Also the skill ceiling on the game is painfully low with CS not being as important as it is in other MOBA games.

I think that is actually one of the things I like more about this game, less emphasis on creeps.  I know that is sort of an integral part of MOBAs but I think Smite does a decent job of making up for it in other areas of the game.  LoL was a fun game but last I checked it only had 2 or 3 modes to play in.  Smite has quite a bit more and that makes it easy to jump into games with at least a semi organized group of players. 1 or 2 friends on = Joust, 2-3 friends on = Domination or Arena, 4 friends = Conquest.  Plus there is also a 1v1 Joust mode as well as a daily rotating gimmicky mode (ie Thor only conquest, 100k gold start conquest, etc).

Also, last hitting effectively in Smite will still set you apart from lesser players but it just isn't as significant.  Plus in joust clearing one lane of creeps with 3 people is a bit different than someone soloing mid lane in conquest.  Joust in general is much more fast paced than conquest.

I used to play it, it's basically LoL with a, in my opinion, more enjoyable character control. Not as popular nor balanced however.
You should give it a shot again.  The 3v3 Joust is fairly new and I am hoping they add an organized ladder for it.

stop promoting that dumb game. Its a knock off of league of legends. no moba is going to be "bigger" than league for a very long time

I don't see much promotion for it and it honestly is more fun than Dota2 or LoL in my opinion.  Also, like I said, I'm pushing for the Joust mode the game has thus I feel there is room for a competitive scene to develop around that as opposed to directly competing with the other MOBAs.

I only promote the game because 1) WoW arenas have only gotten worse as time goes on and 2) Other games that were promising for PvP (GW2) failed to deliver on a massive scale.  I gave Smite a shot and enjoyed it so I got some arena buddies to play as well and they are liking it as well.  Seriously, I know it sounds like a small change to the existing MOBA set up but it has made all the difference in my opinion.
