I ended up going to visit my best friend this past weekend, and he happens to be on of the people I convinced to play some SMITE with me on Playstation during the beta that’s been going on for a while now. We talked about the game and then ended up taking turns playing for a large part of the day.
Having played enough to hit account level 12, I was starting to feel like playing against bots was far too easy. The only difficulty with bots is that it seems that they level faster than you, but that was probably due to my stupid teammates running in 1v3 or 1v5 over and over again and feeding the shit out of them. It’s okay, I’ve only lost one bot match due to that idiocy — most of the time I’ll just carry our team to victory by playing smart.
I finally came to the conclusion that it was time to play some PvP. I tried to save the entire match, but it decided to only save after I was already part way into the match. Here’s a video of that match:
I think I did pretty well for it being my first real PvP match. I did even better in another match that I played last night. Still Arena 5v5, but we had a player disconnect right as the match was getting under way. Towards the end of the game, the enemy team also had a player disconnect, but it was essentially 4v5 the whole match. We dominated despite the odds, and 3 players on my team, myself included, had flawless games. This time I actually got the full match saved.
Lastly, I have a quick little outplay video that I captured last night as well. I was playing Chronos, whom I have quickly grown to love, though this was my first time playing him. The match ended in a win, but this was the best highlight from the game, in my opinion.
I’d like to hear from someone who plays the game for tips/tricks/advice on anything I’m doing wrong or things that I could improve. I think my mechanics are pretty good at this point, but I love feedback when it comes to MOBAs, as it’s one of the best ways to improve outside of being self-critical. I’m loving the game still though, so it’s likely I’ll have more to talk about in the future. For now though, I should get back to work 😛
