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.

I didn't know that they had an emu server for CoH.  Something that I will have to try out.

this game was popular for a minute or two... I even had it.  But I don't think it kept my attention long enough for me to try a emu server.

 They have 4 servers up now (I'm playing on Torchbearer). Apparently there have been at least 30,000 people playing over the past week.

It's pretty dated, as far as graphics goes, although the cell shading option covers up for that a bit by giving it a more comic-book look.

oh my gosh, this game brings back fond memories.  I need to figure out what to play.  To try out the game, I created Johnny Neutron and played the tutorial.

I have a bunch of heroes and villains. Mostly I've been playing a Controller (Gravity/Temporal Control) Hero named Doc Morlock, who was my original CoH character back in the day, but every time a fresh idea pops into my head I want to create another character. :D  My ID on the servers is @MadBlue

I noticed a lack of blasters in the game for some reason. a lot of tanks, masterminds, and controllers.

OK, so I now have a roster of 10 characters (I think that's enough ... for now). I just hope they don't wipe the servers. :D

 

On the Heroes side, I have:

Doc Morlock (Controller) - Gravity Control / Time Manipulation: Inspired by the culturally advanced Morlocks from The Time Ships, one of my original CoH characters, based on a Mutants & Masterminds character I played (also one of my DCUO characters).

Nightgaunt (Scrapper) - Claws / Ninjitsu: Basically a Batman type character. Named after the creature from Lovecraft's writings, one of my original CoH characters (also one of my DCUO characters, although I had to rename him Knightgaunt there after the server merges).

Legal Eagle (Tanker) - Shield Defense / Broadsword: A law student who transforms into his heroic form with an amulet of Horus. Inspired by this action figure . :D 

(The) Roboteer (Mastermind) - Robotics / Traps: Steampunk cyborg engineer. I based her on a video I saw a few years ago. I can't remember the details, but it was a live performance about a clockwork girl. 

DynaMojo (Blaster) - Electrical Blast / Electricity Manipulation: Ex-police detective, and Chosen of Sogbo, Loa of lightning, One of my DCUO characters.

 

On the Villains side, I have:

Mister Horrible (Brute) - Super Strength / Regeneration: A "Mr. Hyde" type character, named after a character in a They Might Be Giants song. :) 

Abracadaver (Mastermind) - Necromancy / Dark Miasma: He's a skeletal magician with a handlebar mustache.

Shrieking Violet (Controller) - Plant Control / Nature Affinity: Basically, like Poison Ivy, but purple and more unbalanced, one of my DCUO characters.

Charro (Blaster) - Fire Blast / Fire Manipulation: Constantly burning,  his body is encased in fire-proof armor that delivers drugs to alleviate his unending pain. Manipulated by Arachnos to do their bidding, Charro is kind of a tragic figure. I originally created him as an NPC for a Doom Patrol-inspired Mutants & Masterminds campaign.

Kurobara (Arachnos Widow) - Widow Training / Teamwork: Japanese for "Black Rose." I use that name a lot for female Assassin-type characters.

abracadaver! I love it. 

 

I had a necro mastermind and somehow got the name "Hoard" so under all the zombies it said Zombie "Hoard"  :)

 

I still don't know what I want to play :(

 

Love the mastermind, specifically the Robotics / Shields.

Really enjoy the scrapper, usually claws or kinetics with regeneration or energy

Blasters are very rare to see running around the city and was having fun with dual wield / martial 

My favorite class is controller and gravity / anything, ice / storm , illusion / kinetics, Mind / empathy.... just so many choices I love but I prefer playing them in groups for obvious reasons. 

 

I did copyright the name Fury Storm which was a defender storm / lightining and could roll that.

Good news.  I plan on putting on some spandex tights tonight and go clobber some villians.   The problem is that I can't decide what to play.  I like to blast stuff, but I don't like being a glass cannon.  Is the Sentinel a good class?

I just rerolled my Fire Blast / Fire Manipulator Blaster as a Fire Blast / Willpower Sentinel. Haven't played him yet, but I like the fact that there's a mix of DPS and survival related powers.

I rolled a Lightning/regen Sentinel.  I am thinking about switching to a Rad/Regen Sentinel.  Is Rad good or better than Lightning?   

When I played CoV, my main was Dark/Dark Corrupter, but that was a very long time ago.  This time around, I would like to play a blaster type which can solo, which is why I picked a Sentinel. However, I can't decide on what power to take.  I like how Rad looks, but I heard Lightning or Fire is better for soloing.

That's hilarious. Is this a character you're playing? 

I wound up playing around with a few of my characters - mostly concept and name changes to sound more like typical superhero/villain names: "Dynamojo" is now "Captain Dynamo," "Kurobara" is now "Blood Orchid" and "Charro" is now "Pyre" (I was surprised that name was still available).

I'm not sure what character is the most fun to play, but I think Robotics / Traps is a nice balance of DPS and survival, since I can sic a bunch of robots on enemies and stand back and blast them.

Trusin and I were playing on the new server last night on the hero side.  That was first time that I played a hero, because I only played CoV before.  There is a lot of new stuff to learn.

There are free server transfers.  We need to pick a server.

They have a server status page up. Torchbearer is the healthiest as far as population goes. It's the original server. When I started it was the only one up and running (well, the original one was Bree before the wipe). I have 10+ characters there. Granted, I could probably get most of my names if I transferred to Halcyon, but it would take a few days to transfer all my characters.

 

If you guys only have one or two characters, maybe a good thing to do would be to save names on Torchbearer and transfer over once double XP is over?
