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.

Patch/Update for 1/9/2020.

Recommended Posts

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.
