Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

  2. I agree. They will probably release the game, but it won't be anything close to what they promised. Why finish a game, when you can make a lot of money just selling virtual ships? Originally, we had a large group of people excited about the game, but that was years ago. While it goes against reason, I still cling to the hope that the game will playable and fun when it releases.
  3. Grinding rep for a flying mount and azur points. Anyone wants to join me, all are welcome.
  4. I've come to believe that SC is just a long running scam.😒
  5. Looking for an Invite for my Pally Rhindahl. Decided to give WoW another try after 12 years.
  6. Welcome to Bimami and MagnusD, both joined today. also thank you to long time members, Trip, Elliott, and Pirant 8-) We have a few other people that float in and out, as its a casual game, and always looking for more. Welcome to UN: Bairdsen Character: HurricaneOkeechobee Level 95, Champion

  8. This was new to me, didn't have time to read it while she activated, and the wiki didn't say what to do anyway, so it wasn't successful loot wise. What you need to do. She will give you some currency, spend as much of is as you can setting up totems around her device to defend it from a stream of un dead you have to kill / keep away from the device. The more damage dealing devices the better your odds of keeping the device from being damaged and failing the mission. Had I hade 2 flam totems, I would have succeed, one wasn't enough. 8-) https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Sister_Cassia Sister Cassia This page is a stub. You can help Path of Exile Wiki by expanding it. Sister Cassia Area: Atlas of Worlds Functions: Offers Blight encounters, Anoints items Quest: Strange Growths Sister Cassia is an NPC who introduces the player to Blight encounters. She can randomly be found in maps. After encountering her for the first time, she can be invited to your hideout. Contents 1Dialogue 1.1Introduction 1.2Exile 1.3Replacement 1.4Devices 1.5Fungi 1.6The Templar 1.7Piety and Dominus 1.8Innocence 1.9Blighted Maps 2Version history Dialogue Introduction Hm? What do we have here? Yet another of Oriath's cast-offs? With the problems we're facing here, I do wish they'd send someone with a little more... utility. Alas, we have useless exiles blowing in like spores on the wind. Cassia, by the by. Pleasure. Exile Yes, it's true, I, like you, am an exile. I caught the High Templar's eye several years ago. I showed an interest in the mechanical arts, and he had need for someone like myself for some highly secret projects he had started. He sought ways to tap into the power contained within the virtue gems in ways that I'm not sure were in line with God's plan. I did not openly refuse his orders; I simply... interpreted them differently. The mechanisms I built were brilliant and powerful, and totally useless for his desires. I may have kept some of them. Unfortunately, as you know, little slips past Dominus. I was exiled as a matter of secrecy. Rapidly replaced by some little floozy. What? She is a floozy. Replacement You likely know her by the name High Templar Dominus gave her -- Piety. A floozy-turned-thaumaturgist-turned-inventor. Or at least, she wishes she were. I've seen some of her work. Unimpressive, considering the resources she has available to her. Not that I'm envious. I'm not. Really, good for her. But, you know, creators have a habit of getting caught in the teeth of their own creations, and Piety seems to favour creations with many, many teeth. Devices I've worked on many beautiful little machines in my time. Let's see... There was the one that was originally designed to rapidly peel and pith fruit. That one is now called the Descalper. The portable oven turned out to be less of an oven and more of a red-hot ember dispenser. Still quite popular. And of course, the towers I have been assembling for use in protecting the portable-purifying-pumping unit. Those I am particularly proud of. Powered by the toxic fluid that runs through the fungal fibres. Surprisingly robust, and safe! Relatively safe. Almost no one has died yet who wasn't meant to. Fungi I've not seen anything like it before. The growths show no sign of intelligent thought, no clear ambition, yet the moment the pump's needle pierces the fungal flesh, creatures of all shapes and sizes begin to emerge from the mycelium -- and they never stray away from it. The fluid within those growths may hold the key to controlling the minds of creatures... And hopefully, something to protect us from such a power. Too many already vie for control of our wills, but that is the domain of the divine. The Templar You've no doubt heard me singing some of the Templar hymns. One of the many habits that stuck with me, other than the one I still wear. Though the Templar have their... 'issues', they are not without merit. They are, after all, doing God's work. And by Innocence, their hymns are truly catchy little earworms. Singing them helps me focus. Piety and Dominus Strange as it may sound, I'm somewhat sad. I know in my heart of hearts that they were not good people, but they were still people. I knew Dominus well. We worked together. Ate together. There was a time when I would have called him my friend. And Piety was fighting her own demons. I hope God sees fit to forgive their souls... And mine. Innocence The Innocence you slew was not the God I know. My God is selfless. Humble. Yes, he is prone to burning sinners, but who among us isn't? You just wait, Exile. Eternity will prove me right. Blighted Maps I'm starting to believe that these growths have some sort of central... well, brain isn't exactly the right word, but it isn't far off. These larger growths, these "blighted maps" you've found, they may lead us to the original source of the Blight. Not long ago, I believed they were a symptom of Wraeclast's death. Fungal growths feeding on a rotting carcass. Now? I'm certain they're a parasite. Wraeclast isn't dead, but it is dying, weakened by its violent history, and being overpowered and smothered by the blight. God has laid out all the puzzle pieces. All we need to do now is put them together. I hope you're good at puzzles.

  17. Thanks for the update.

  19. Today, PoE was taken down for an announced 3 hours for a large patch and update. Such patches and updates take 2 to 3 times longer to install on Steam, due to some mechanic of preallocation before actually downloading and installing the update. You are better off playing PoE with the stand alone launcher, as it is much faster. Be that as it may, they put out a video featuring the hideouts you can have, there are some really amazing things players have done with them, as they are customizable with decorations and different back drops. I included a link to the video, along with today's patch notes. Enjoy! Later this week we're planning to release our first big patch this year. The 3.9.2 update includes various improvements and fixes to some of the known issues. In addition, the patch introduces several changes to the Awakener fight.While you're waiting, check out the patch notes of this update. Please note that these patch notes are not final and are still subject to change before the patch.Metamorph improvements: Added a new vendor recipe for Metamorph organs. Three of any organs can be given to receive a random organ differing from those offered, with random rewards. Fixed a bug which caused Metamorph bosses to become unfreezable. They can once again be frozen, however they have a higher ailment threshold relative to map bosses with similar amounts of Life. Adjusted a number of Metamorph skills, including the Reliquarian's Firestorm, the Shavronne & Brutus Hover Slam, Tentacle Miscreation projectile skills, the tracking Mortar skills (including those used by Oriath zombies and Kitava's Heralds), Burning and Caustic Ground-creating skills and several others. In general, these will now either deal less damage or be easier to avoid. Increased the timeout for the Tane's Laboratory area closing when empty. Fixed an uncommon case where Metamorph organs were missing when the area had been cleared. Fixed a bug where players could sometimes get trapped in the vat in Tane's Laboratory. Fixed some of Tane's talk options being available at the wrong time. Visual effects from monsters that give organs dying now correctly remain rather than being removed shortly after. Atlas improvements: Fixed the incorrect Atlas quest information being shown after migrating a character. Fixed a bug where Citadels were still being hidden when the boss encounter was not available. Fixed a bug where Influence items were not dropping from monsters in maps influenced by Conquerors of the Atlas (they could drop from chests). Fixed a bug where the "Defeat Conquerors Conditionally" challenge conditions were sometimes not completing correctly. Fixed a bug where the Conquerors of the Atlas bosses would retarget when taunted. Added new lore objects to the Conqueror of the Atlas boss areas. The Awakener fight:Update: We're working on fixing the stairs issue in the Awakener fight. We'll try to include the fix into 3.9.2 (but it may be deployed later in a follow-up patch) The Awakener has been decreased to level 81 from 84 at Awakening levels 1 to 5, increasing by one for each additional Awakening level. He is still level 84 at Awakening level 8, and this only affects the item levels of his drops. Specifically reduced the damage on a majority of The Awakener's skills at everything below Awakening level 8. Prevented the storms in The Awakener fight from being able to occupy the space near the arena entrance, so you no longer can enter and be inside a storm. Changed the behaviour of the storms so they no longer pursue the player or their minions. Instead they more organically maneuvere the arena in a way that should cause more openings to travel around freely while still applying some limitation. Adjusted The Awakener Storm and Desolation skills to do less damage to minions. Increased the damage of The Awakener's Multiclone Beam skill. Fixed a bug which could result in the Awakener fight not progressing if he traveled too far in a single Throne Phase. Fixed issues when playing in a party where the effects from the Meteor skills could be invisible. Improved the visibility of the The Awakener's Desolation ground effects. Other fixes and improvements: Added 3D art for The Ivory Tower unique body armour. Fixed DirectX 11 implementation that would use too much memory. Affecting mainly Windows 7 users, and Windows 10 users with old GPUs. Fixed a bug where Awakened Cast on Crit was adding a cooldown to supported skills. Fixed the new influence gem level mods incorrectly snapshotting. Fixed a bug in some cases where the Volatile Dead limit was not being enforced. Fixed more cases where multiple Vaal Side areas could spawn attached to an area. Fixed a bug where Sulphite could not be gathered in areas above level 83. Fixed the item filter settings not saving when using languages other than English. Fixed a bug where updating an item filter on the website would de-select it in-game. Fixed item names displaying incorrectly on rare items when using the Russian language. Re-straightened the curved paths on the world map. HIDEOUT SHOWCASE VIDEO

  21. Hey Ragequitt,

    Please contact me asap.

    Miss you big guy :)


  22. Adding this website - POENINJA - https://poe.ninja/challenge/currency Poke around this page, its a combination of leader board for the top 100, showing their class, gear, passive tree, and a market price checker for all tradeable items/currencies. Thanks to AtDawnsEarlyLight of KFC Guild.
  23. Thank you Damis! The Holiday was a blur, 9 days of fun filled activities! No back to work! On the table so far, we have Smite, PoE, WoW, and ArcheAge Unchained that I am aware of. What else is gaming in CotP?
  24. I have been playing this since just before the Christmas holiday, it was re-reviewed by PC Gamer Magazine in October 2019, and received excellent ratings. After playing the game for a time, trying multiple characters, watching streams. I do see how this game is enticing. You can play it solo at your pace, or get with guild mates for markedly harder maps and boss fights. The current league is very good, and the challenge of rankings for the highest level SSF Hardcore player awaits. It has a healthy community, Path of Exile II is in the making with upgraded graphics, physics engine, and QoL improvements. Stay Tuned!
  25. Happy New Year! I feel we will see great progress in 2020 as well as the opening of more testing for the community at large. This months newsletter can be found here LINK

  27. It's already 2020 in New Zealand! We want to wish our community a Happy New Year and also to take a moment to look back on the year that has just concluded. As is tradition, today we're posting our annual retrospective. In 2019: We launched four expansions: Synthesis, Legion, Blight and Conquerors of the Atlas (with the Metamorph challenge league). We hosted ExileCon, our very first Path of Exile convention with more than 1400 attendees from around the world, including special guests from Blizzard North, community streamers and content creators, and very real Eihnar Frey and Zana. We announced Path of Exile 2 and the Path of Exile Mobile project! We partnered with Kakao to launch Path of Exile in South Korea. We released Path of Exile on PlayStation 4. We set a record number of players online (224,000 on our server alone). There were 30% more hours played of Path of Exile on our international realm in 2019 than 2018. Around 8.7 million players played Path of Exile on our international realm this year. We expanded from 122 to 147 in-house staff members. We deployed more than 45 updates/patches to our realm. We posted 382 news articles - an average of 7.3 posts per week. We remastered the existing Path of Exile soundtrack and updated it with new music. We hit a new record in viewer numbers on Twitch. We introduced a new system that allows you to manage your Master missions. We praised amazing talents of our players by hosting four community competitions. We revamped spellcasters, melee combat, Necromancers and dozens of skills. We reworked the entire Atlas system. We updated the look of the Lioneye's Watch. Thank you to everyone who has joined us in 2019, who has returned and who has been with us throughout the year. Thank you to all of you who has travelled all the way to New Zealand to attend ExileCon in November. Path of Exile wouldn't evolve that significantly without your generous support and continued feedback. We love you all! Here's to another big year in Wraeclast!
