Smite - League system - Posted by HiRezErez on r/Smite

Here is the current design for the league system:

Each league session is one calendar month

There are several tiers in the league (silver, gold, etc...)

Playing in a tier rewards the player with a special league frame for the load screens. Multiple plays in a league give high prestige frames.

A website listing the top players in each league tier will be available (probably top 100)

At the end of a month, top 20% of the players within a Tier change places with the bottom 20% of the players of the higher Tier

Placement within a tier is based on number of league points earned

League points are earned when a players wins a ranked match (current solo master conquest)

Only the player's top 10 wins (+ the current win value) count towards league points

Starting value for a win is 10 points, losing a match reduces the value of the next win by 1, winning a match increases the value of next win by 1

FAQ:

Can you play all your matches in one day? It's possible but would not recommend it :)

Can you improve your ranking by playing more matches? yes, if you win more you can have matches with win values that will replace your lowest wins.

How many tier will you have? Not sure yet, but probably 3 to 5 to start with

How will tiers be seeded? We will either start everyone in the same tier, or use the current skill ratings.

Will you only play with players in your Tier? No, the matches are still based on putting together matches based on elo ratings to make both sides fair.

Other Hot Fixes - from r/Smite

Quote by HiRezBart:

Enjoy your 3 man ranked queues! Elo will be reset in the morning once we confirm you can no longer queue with parties.

We are working on a hot fix to be released tomorrow morning that will address many of the bugs associated with Thanatos and strange states you can get in with the ult.

This hotfix will also look to clean up some weirdness with the UI and God master/adept ranks and allow you to rent gods again!

We will also increase the timing on each round of picking/banning by 5 seconds. Ban phase was 30 and is now 35 seconds. God picking was 40 and is now 45. This is expected increase in match lobby time by approximately 45 sec.

edit: The patcher has had brief downtime today. If you are having trouble upgrading to the Thanatos patch, hit the cog in the top right corner of your patcher and select restart services then restart your client! It should begin downloading then. If you still have issues, please contact support.

Play Menu and Match Queues

All timed queues under the NORMAL tab of the PLAY menu are now configured so that players will ONLY get matches within their preferred region. That is, people whose preferred region is North America will only get matches on North American servers (and Europeans will only get matches on European servers). At some off hours, players may find that they will get better matches if they switch to the other region.

The Mastery/Worshipper system has been revised. You continue to reach Mastery Rank 1 at 100 Worshippers, but there are now three ranks prior to Mastery Rank 1 (Acolyte, Neophyte and Adept), as follows:
Acolyte: 10 Worshippers
Neophyte: 25 Worshippers
Adept: 50 Worshippers

The “Casual” tab on the PLAY menu has been renamed to “NORMAL”. The “COMPETITIVE” tab has been removed.

A new queue named “CONQUEST SOLO MASTER” has been added under the NORMAL tab of the PLAY menu. This queue is designed to provide the highest quality matches for experienced Conquest players. The queue has these attributes:
You must join the queue solo (you cannot join in a party).

In order to join the queue, you must have at least 12 Gods at ADEPT level (that is, you have accrued at least 50 worshippers on 12 different gods). Not that at a future point this requirement may change to require 12 gods at Master Rank 1.
Once in the match lobby, you may only select gods for which you are at ADEPT level. That is: Players are only allowed to play gods that they are experienced with.
The queue uses draft mode, with one ban allowed per team.

God Trading is allowed in the match lobby, but only if both players have both gods at the correct mastery level.
Top 200 Player Rankings will be published for this queue.
For this queue, Worshiper rewards are increased by 20%.
The newest god will still be banned for play in this queue through a “cooldown” period (usually one to two weeks).

Let's start with - What's Smite?

As posted on the official HiRez Website -

SMITE is the online battleground of the gods. Players choose from a diverse cast of deities and use their unique powers to triumph over the opposition in 5v5 team matches. SMITE is a new take on the MOBA genre; rather than observing from above the action, the game’s third person perspective puts players into the thick of combat. Instead of clicking the mouse to move, players use the familiar WASD keys to move and fight their way through SMITE’s dynamic battlegrounds.

Welcome to Smite's Anook Community Blog thing!

Hey guys!

Welcome to the community here. I've made this because as you can see, Anook seems to be quite a growing Gamer network and Smite's growing on top of that too. There are a lot of Community forums out there for Smite. I thought for people who are new to Smite and maybe found it through Anook, they could have a look here to see how the game progresses and how the community is.

So do bring in people to join! Not just this page but Anook too! Hope you like it here. I'll be posting Patch notes and other Blog posts here, as well as other important info.

So I hope you give me a little time to set things up! Till then, hop on and get comfy!
