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.
Pro Smite streamer and commentator Brandon “DM Brandon” Nance is resigning from his position with developer Hi-Rez Studios after reacting to a viewer’s donation message with a acerbic rant about suicide and depression.
Hi-Rez Studios kicks off a week of second anniversary shenanigans in its god-powered multiplayer online battle arena with an open invitation to PlayStation 4 owners to play. Plus daily special events, some dancing, and a ridiculously low price on every character in the game.
Now that last month’s Smite World Championship presented by Xbox One is good and done, it’s time for Hi-Rez Studios to bring its god-based third-person MOBA to not-so-greener game consoles. Closed beta for the PS4 version of Smite kicks off next month.
Titan had all the potential in the world, but they were never able to capitalize on it. Cheating-related troubles punctured their boat back in 2014, and now the org’s founder is claiming they ultimately capsized it. And yet, fans seem more mournful than angry.
The first god in the Japanese pantheon launched in deity-powered MOBA Smite today, and while she might not be the Amaterasu many gamers are familiar with, she’s just as fierce.
The idea behind Jetpack Fighter, the first mobile game from the makers of Smite, might be a hard to grasp. See, you’re this fighter, and you’ve got a jetpack. Still following?
These five gentlemen, collectively known as team Enemy, clawed their way into the 2016 Smite World Championship grand finals only to lose three straight games to Europe’s Epsilon, letting all of North America down. As punishment, they only get $230,000. I blame myself.
North American underdogs Enemy, a team that didn’t technically exist until halfway through the competitive season, just defeated European champions Paradigm three games to one to advance to tomorrow’s grand finals of the 2016 Smite World Championships.
The quarterfinals of the 2016 Smite World Championship passed in a flash of four swept best-of-three matches, including the brutal but not unexpected elimination of both Chinese teams and the boys from Brazil.
The goal in a Smite Conquest match is to kill enemy players, destroy their fortifications and eventually take down the titan guarding their base. In the first match of the 2016 Smite World Championship, one team accomplished none of those things.
Ten of the top Smite teams from around the world have converged on Atlanta to see which one plays the deity-based MOBA well enough to earn $500,000 doing so. Here’s what to expect.
The ultimate unlock in Smite’s 2016 World Championship-funding Odyssey is finally live, and I get a chance to put Ragnarok Force X Thor through his paces.
Smite’s “Ultimate God Pack,” which gives you every character currently in the game plus any future characters Hi-Rez adds to it, is going on sale tomorrow for $20. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in the game. Except for Dota 2 (which makes every hero free), this is easily the best deal in any MOBA.
A week’s worth of competitive Smite play at Hi-Rez Studio’s in-house esports arena has come to an end, resulting in three European and two North American teams taking trips to Atlanta this January.
With the introduction of the Japanese pantheon to the god-based MOBA coming early next year, Smite wanted to do something special to make the incoming deities fell welcome. Ragnarok Force X Thor should do the trick.
There is a ton of major eSports content dropping this weekend. If you’re not too busy playing Overwatch now that Blizzard’s opened up the beta a little bit, you should watch some of it. Here are the four main events we recommend.
For years I’ve spent most of my days desperately avoiding the big glowing ball of fire in the day, bottling up my frustration at its burning, sweat-generating touch. Next week’s Smite update brings the sun down from the sky, and I’ll be waiting.
For some parents all it takes is a cuddle or a short story to send their little darlings into dreamland. Not me. I have to play video games to get the kids to go down. Poor me.
