Reader LouTheVI points out that Smite’s been having some server problems this weekend. Also a slight tact problem. Servers should be up and running now, bitches.

Hey Heroes of the Storm Abathur players, I need to ASKathur you a question. Sorry. I want to put together a guide for this strange, wonderful hero since he’s finally on free week (and because he’s notoriously difficult to master).
