SMITE 101

  • A competitive game of SMITE features two teams of 5 players choosing from a large selection of playable gods, immortals, and creatures from ancient mythology in arena combat.
  • The game features full cross-platform compatibility (players on different platforms can party up together) as well as cross-save (transfer player save data across multiple platforms).
  • There are several different game modes in SMITE. Each mode has its own unique map with its own playstyle, rules, and objectives. Common among each mode is the existence of: 
    • Minions - AI units that aid players in battle.
    • Structures - towers that attempt to prevent enemies from advancing. 
  • The main competitive game mode is “Conquest”, a typical MOBA mode with two bases at opposite sides of the map connected by three lanes. Each lane is protected by various defensive structures that players must destroy. 
  • The objective of Conquest is to assault the enemy defenses and destroy the final structure (called a ”Titan”) at the center of their base while preventing the enemy from destroying theirs. The first team to destroy the enemy Titan wins.

Mechanics

  • Gods (playable characters) are sorted into 5 different class types: 
    • Hunters - ranged fighters
    • Guardians - support/frontline tanks
    • Mages - magical ranged ability users
    • Warriors - close range melee bruisers
    • Assassins - mobile attackers
  • Gods are also separated by the type of power utilized: 
    • Physical - Hunters, Warriors, & Assassins
    • Magical - Guardians & Mages
  •  All Gods contain a mixture of the following abilities: 
    • Basic Attacks
    • Abilities (special to each character) 
    • Healing
    • Protections & Mitigation
    • Penetration & Reduction
  • Certain class archetypes will be better suited to a specific 1 of the 3 lanes (i.e.) top lane, middle lane, and bottom lane.
