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.

    Elric, Grim and I recently bought this game when it was on sale on Steam.  It's a fun and interesting game that I would recommend picking up when it goes back on sale.

    Hit me up on Discord or Steam if you're interested.  I've been playing it daily for the last few weeks, and here is what I can tell you so far:

    1. While playable solo, it is a lot more fun to play with other people.  It also does not matter what planet or "server" that you start on.  It gives you the option of U.S. East or West, but all that does is determine which planets are in your available starter planet pool.  Once you start playing the game you can get to any planet.  For example, I started on a U.S. West planet.  However, through using the portal system of the game, I could easily get to the US East planets, or the EU planets, or the AU planets.  There are no restrictions between countries in this game.

    2. The game seems like it has a steep learning curve at first, but really all you need is one person to ask your questions.  If a knowledgeable player can help you out, it becomes 10x more fun.

    3. Join a guild.  While COTP doesn't have enough of a population to warrant a chapter yet, there are a few of us playing. I joined a guild called "Portal Seekers".  They have been playing together since Beta, and their players are incredibly knowledgeable about the game.  They have a portal system set up where you can freely travel to every planet in the game.  They also have established easy access to player "Shopping Malls".  It is essentially a group of portals that go directly to different players' shops.  This game has no NPC shops, so the entire economy is player driven!

    Again, just hit me up on Discord / Steam to chat. ;)

    Really fun game, I'd be playing more often and will again, after my current family crisis has had a chance to pass...

    I suspect to be on more after the first of the year. :)

    Cheers
