    I'd take an extra beta key for XB1... feel like that game could translate pretty well

    I just went into my email to get one of them because I had 3 left, used one, and it looks like I deleted the email that they were in. Sorry.
    It is awesome. There is les communication for certain types of game play compared to the PC but it is great game because there are so many different Gods to play as.

    Literally 1 thread on this game? It's fantastic. Even got Super Vegeta to start playing it recently.

    It's free. Micro-transactions for cosmetic items, and there is a "god pack" to unlock every god. I don't remember how many are playable without it though. Maybe 10 or so of the 80?

    After playing so many over head camera MOBAs I just can't get into Smite or Paragon though I tried. Plus on a tv it is hard to read the mini map on such a large screen compared to being on a focused smaller screen on PC.

    Fun as hell still... I've been playing this more than OW lately. I pretty much stick to Arena, maybe check that mode out BlazingRebel

    Fav of each class are as follows (changes weekly it seems outside of Xbalanque and Kulkulkan)....

    Edit... This list is now laughable after my favs with the exception of Guardian. Bacchus is by far my fav guard now.

    Hunter:
    1) Xbalanque
    2) Cupid (This will change soon, but I've been having loads of fun with him. It's imperative to hit the heart bomb)
    3)Izanami, Artemis, Ah Cab

    Mage:
    1) Kulkulkan
    2) Raijin, Vulcan, Freya

    Warrior: (I suck with these outside of Osiris)
    1) Osiris
    2) Odin, Bellona, Sunwukong?

    Assassin:
    1) Bastet (played for the first time just yesterday and already have my best results of any assassin)
    2) Ne Zha (Most fun to play, so bursty, but so important to hit your shots)
    3) Loki, Ne Zha, Thor, Awilix, Arachne

    Guardian:
    1) Ymir
    2) Kumbhakarna (I guess, I'm p bad with most of the Guardians outside of Ymir)

    Try Bacchus if you want a good/easy-to-play guardian.

    He can 100-0 mages/hunters from level 5 on. Jump on them, then use the burp/stun. If they're low hp, use your ult. If not, smack em a couple of times while they're stunned, then ult when they're running away. His jump is great for escaping. His stun is great for CC. His Ult is great for cleanup kills too. It has a decent AOE, so always use it similar to an execution ult. Can also be used if you're about to get burst, and need to stagger them until your jump is off cooldown to escape.

    Cernunnos is absolutely OP... My build has him hitting 500 per shot at a machine gun pace towards the end. I'm hitting like 50k+ player damage per game. He can absolutely take over an arena match -- I haven't played with him on the other map style.

    Really wish more folks played this. The only one from TMB I play with is Taco Sa1ad. Super Vegeta and @UKace used to, but haven't seen em rock it in a while.

    I play on PC. And yes he needs a nerf. I do have it on XB1 but I don't think it's as good on console.

    I play on PC as well, but like it much better on console. I think it's bc I'm still such an amateur on PC and am not used to the controls yet, however.

    Opposite for me. I find the aiming better on pc. Some gods I like better on console though. Just depends. Overall I think the concept is great.

    This list is pretty different now..... Bastet, Kuku, and Xbalanq are all level 10.

    Hunter:
    1) Xbalanque
    2) Cernunnos
    3) I don't have a 3rd I play with, unless you include Freya in this category

    Mage:
    1) Kulkulkan
    2) Ah Puch
    3) Vulcan (only because of that game posted above)

    Warrior: (By far my worst class, but I love playing them)
    1) Osiris
    2) Bellona
    3) Vamana

    Assassin:
    1) Bastet (One of my 3 best characters in the game)
    2) She's pretty much the only assassin I play anymore... I had some good games with Arachne and Ao Kuang (mage assassin) recently though.

    Guardian:
    1) Bacchus (my next level 10)
    2) Khumba
    3) Geb/Ymir

    Encountered the most toxic player I've ever played with in any game this weekend on Smite. First off, this was an unranked Arena match. This guy picks Scylla, and we start the game. Within about 4 minutes he's 0-3-0, and completely out of position in each of his 3 deaths. Like a normal toxic player, he blamed the team for his own shitty positioning with the "You Rock! Cancel that" spam.

    Finally, he goes "Bye" and literally sits in the base without leaving for the last 15 minutes. Instead he decided to just harass the team from the safety of his own base. Every time someone would die he'd say "You Rock! You Rock! You Rock! Cancel that!" and when we were in the base he'd try to hit us. He even ulted me inside the base one time. It was mind blowing. Just leave the game dude, no need to be a complete immature childish baby after about 4 minutes because things aren't going your way.

    Why in the world is someone this mentally unstable playing video games in the first place? If you can't handle a team based PvP game in a casual game mode, I think it's time to give up on PvP games altogether.

    Welcome to smite, especially Xbox smite

    I love the game and play a lot but I cannot stand the toxic environment, 4 man clans who report you if you do something they don't like, and the server stability problems

    Server stability problems, especially lately, have been pretty obnoxious.

    I hit diamond with Zhong Kui this weekend, taking advantage of the bonus XP.

    I have been playing a ton of Erlang Shen lately as well, I love his style and want to be good with him so badly, but I'm just not. I'll have mostly mediocre games from a KDR standpoint, but only break 20k in player damage about half the time. I always take a shitload, but just don't seem to put out much. That's with a moderately offensive build too.

    I wouldnt build crit with him and build shoes. Probably don't need fatalis either.

    Warrior/ninja, ichiv/obow, exe/titans, qins, cutting sword or fatalis if you do want it, situational item or defense.

    Also he's better in Clash vs Arena

    That's good advice. I'll try out your build and let you know how it goes.

    I changed the previous build yesterday before seeing this, to something much cheaper and it actually worked much better. I went like 9-2-13 in my first game with him.

    I went with Warrior Tabi, Spirit Robe, Shifters, Winged Blade, Odysseus' Bow, and Bloodforge -- that's only like 13500ish and worked surprisingly well. It also measured out better than what I had been building previously for about 2-3k more.

    I took out Fatalis because it's too expensive now, and he has that ability naturally.

    I'm looking for a new Nemesis build as well... I changed that one last night to one I found online which was Ninja Tabi, Hastened Fatalis, Ichaival, Silverbranch Bow, Qin Sais, Shifters.... Depending on opponent I've been switching out one of the 2 cheap bows for Jotunn's to get the cooldowns, but I still don't love it.

    Fatalis on the hunter with the passive crit ability (forget which...Artemis? Neith?) Hnnnnnnn nnnngngngngnn

    Nothing better than chasing squishies down late game and melting their hp.

    I need to play this game again, but I'm too addicted to Overwatch :(

    Shame. Mobility on a hunter is pretty important. I almost always put it in my builds :(

    I guess burst damage would be the way to go now?

    Keep in mind I only really play Arena. That said, CC is a much bigger part of the game this season than previous ones -- at least that's the way it seems to me and everyone I play with. It's almost as if whatever team has more stun/CC based characters on their team wins. I don't love it tbh.

    Edit: There was a big discussion I think on Reddit about hunters and Hastened, need to re-read it.

    Pretty annoyed with this.... I just built out 3 warriors the exact same way. Lolwat. Erlang has lower power, hits slower, has less mana and health than Bellona? Seems reasonable.

    Yeah, Bellona is awesome. Have her and Erlang to level 10, and Odin at 8. Sucks, because I probably like playing Erlang the most of these gods, but if the above is correct he's pretty broken. His abilities are shit, his ult has the nice heal at the end, but it's not better than Odin or Bellonas imo.

    Compared to Bellona, Erlang hits slower, doesn't hit as hard, has around 1,500 less health and like 600 less mana all while having less MP5 and HP5? It's not like his kit is so dominant they needed to pare it down, because that's absurd if correct.
