Our Top Picks for Smites Best Playable Heroes

Our Top Picks for Smites Best Playable Heroes

Smite started out as just another MOBA trying to compete with LoL and DOTA 2. Two giants of the industry that seemed unstoppable. Many people wrote off Smite and thought it would be dead within a year. But many years on and Smite is still one of the most popular MOBAs on the market. The metagame is in a very healthy place, new heroes are released constantly and the active modding community makes sure we have access to the latest working cheats for Smite. In fact, it seems the Smite community is more active than the DOTA 2 community, which is a huge step.

So today we are ranking our top picks for the best playable heroes in Smite. This ranking is based on our opinions and experiences, as opposed to the current Metagame.

Merlin

Our first pick is the elemental wizard himself. Merlin. A ranged damage dealer, Merlin is great for fans of a more offensive playstyle. As with most ranged mages, Merlin is an excellent damage dealer allowing him a lot of lane control. He works great solo, or pairs well with a tank or melees DPS. And to top it off he has a great skin selection, including the Avatar from the popular Nickelodeon show.

Kuzenbo

The turtle king of Smite and strong enough that he could give Bowser a run for his money. Kuzenbo is one of our favorite tanks in the game. He has excellent defensive stats and health. And to top it all off, he can even silence enemies. He is also one of the more mobile tanks, able to dash around the battlefield. So if you are a fan of strength mixed with speed, this is the God for you.

Set

The famous Egyptian God Set is one of the most brutal and popular Gods in Smite. Difficult to master but powerful once you have mastered him. Set is a melee assassin who specializes in one-on-one combat situations. His abilities render him immune to damage while stacking debuffs on his foes which eventually leads to high burst damage. He is played best when he moves from lane-to-lane ganking for the team. But he can equally be effective as a bottom-lane damage dealer when paired with good support.

Jeng Wei

Jeng Wei is a ranged DPS that I absolutely adore! She can deal a lot of damage but her main usage is speed and disabling enemy Gods. Her ultimate allows her to literally fly across the battlefield letting her back into the fight straight away. Or it can be used to set up an effective ambush. Not to mention her baseline damage skills are excellent to boot. If you’re a fan of a more traditional ranged DPS, then Jeng Wei is the one for you.

Bacchus

The God of wine! We love this God simply because of how jolly and drunk he is. Most of his abilities are focused on this fact as well. And he isn’t just a good laugh either. He is a powerful God too. His abilities deal a fair amount of damage, but their main draw is their ability to put some solid debuffs on your opponents. Slowing and intoxicating them. In team fights, this can be the difference between victory and defeat. If you ever come up against a Bacchus, just make sure you run when he spills his wine. Because that is when trouble is brewing!

5 Great Ways to Improve your Discord Server

5 Great Ways to Improve your Discord Server

Running a discord server can be a lot of fun. It is a great way to connect with your friends and catch up, all in one place. If you are someone that plays games, then having a Discord server with your fellow gaming team is a must-have. It can be annoying to update everyone individually and so having everyone in the same place make a lot of sense. Discord also has a lot of features that you can use to improve your overall user experience, but many people do not know about them. Here are 5 great ways to improve your discord server.

1 – Make Custom Emojis

If you and your friends have had a lot of funny or iconic moments, there is no better way to celebrate them than using custom emojis. Custom emojis add a lot of fun to your discord server, as they can be used as reactions to inside jokes only you and your friends know about. You can make just about any image into an emoji, so why not transform your friend’s faces into one of the many meme-emoji formats that are out there.

2 – Introduce Bots

Not a lot of people know that you can actually set up bots on your discord server. Have you ever been in a particularly quiet call and you wish that you had some sort of background music playing to cut the silence? Well, Discord has a lot of bots that are dedicated to playing all of the music you love, you simply need to add a song to the queue and wait for your turn. There are also bots that remind you of whose birthday it is and any upcoming events that you may need to know the date for.

3 – Set Roles

Discord has this cool feature where you can set roles in the server. This can be used in a serious way if you are using a server that requires the users to know their dedicated roles, or it can be used as a fun joke. You can set it so that certain roles have more control of the server than others, which is especially useful if you have a large sum of people on your server. You can also just use the roles to set fun nicknames and give a bit more life to your server.

4 – Make Separate Channels

This is something that is extremely useful if your discord channel has a lot of people and a lot of different categories. Say you want a place where people can talk and discuss their favorite music, you could set up a channel for that. You can also grant specific access to these channels, which is good if you have some important things that you want to discuss and you do not want just anyone joining that particular voice chat. Channels are a great way to keep everything organised, as general chats can get quite busy and a lot of people may hold separate conversations at the same time.

5 – Introduce Fun Plugins

Something that you may not know is that you can get a lot of plugins for discord. One of the most popular plugins that you can get is a voice changer for discord. By using this plugin, you can completely transform your voice during voice calls to make it sound like you are someone completely different. This plugin has been very popular among D and D Discord servers, as the dungeon master can use it to transform his voice into different characters for the role-play sessions.
