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.

    Maestrom Free to Play on Steam.

    Maestrom

    Grim fantasy combined with thunderous naval combat in a vibrant, monster-saturated world! Captain an Orc, Dwarf or Human warship and sail the turbulent Abyssal Ocean with online multiplayer, in free-for-all & team based matches.

    gameplay.png?t=1569009767

    • Be ruthless! Sink other players ships, take their loot and collect their bounty!
    • Be greedy! Maps are littered with floating treasure chests and ships loaded with gold.
    • Be cunning! As the match progresses hungry sea monsters become more aggressive and encroach the safe waters ships can sail in. Ships sailing in 'Dead Waters' for too long end up as monster chow!
    • Be unsinkable! At the end of a match ships can be upgraded and customized with captains, cannons, armor, mates and more!

    WARSHIPS WIN WITH WITS

    Enemy ships can be rammed, grappled and boarded!
    Maneuver a ship through the swelling sea and prepare for ramming! The faster the ship is moving the more devastating the collision will be on impact.

    Boarding locks both ships in place while crews fight it out. If one crew manages to kill all of the opposing crew, it can spell disaster & sink a ship quickly, sending it to the depths!

    ARMOR, AMMO AND POSITIONAL DAMAGE

    Each ship has armor on all four sides. The armor sections serve as additional defense toward damage to that side and must be destroyed before the ship's hull can be damaged. Maneuvering to keep your armor between you and your enemy is vital to staying afloat - and seeking the enemy's damaged sides will make you much more lethal in combat!Every cannon has access to three kinds of ammunition and can swap during combat to suit the situation. Ammo is unlimited.

    • Iron shot blasts chunks out of ship armor and hull.
    • Chain shot is used to shred enemy sails and cripple a ship’s speed.
    • Grapeshot slaughters enemy crew and makes ships easier to board.

    LURKING THE DEEP

    Like the ocean they reside in, sea monsters are titanic forces of nature. They stalk unwary captains and can devour a ship whole. Like this Murkwater Thrasher.

    Me and Damis had fun playing this on Sunday, a really good game.  It also has seasons, so there is a reset every so often to keep things equal, though I have to ask, anything purchased with gunpowder, might reset also.

    I played a bit more, and realized you can unlock the other 2 mate slots on each ship for 50k each, just click the one with the anchor.  Oy!
    Solo matches favor Orcs for sure, with close range damage bonuses and boarding and ramming, stay close to terrain so your target has to come in close, get stuck, etc.  
    It's pretty competitive!

    Still having fun with this Battle Royal game.  You can get some really good matches.  In solo, nothing really beats the Cleaver.
    I got the sea monsters to kill 2 other opponents before me.
