Its that time of the year again. Time to gather up and hop in Teamspeak. The date is set for August 20, 2016 at 12:00 pm EST (GMT-5). I hope to see everyone that can make it there! The meeting agenda and recording will be posted afterwards. Once again, I am putting up an anonymous form if you have questions, comments, or concerns. I encourage you all to fill this out to give myself and command staff useful feedback. There will be some big changes coming up, so you should be there to here them live. There will be a meeting recording and notes posted afterwards with full details on the upcoming changes.
Hoping to see you all there
Gods and Goddesses, it is time. Our reign has finally come to an end. It is with my great regret that I am announcing the close of the SMITE Division. We’ve had a good run, and I think it’s about time.
The developer of SMITE, Hi-Rez, has made some less than agreeable choices as far as their direction of the game. They tasted the fruits of the professional gaming scene and that’s where the community and game has veered off to. When we embarked on raising the division, we had one absolute goal in mind: good casual fun. We enjoyed playing the game while it supplied us with a plethora of wins and losses, both enjoyed no matter what. We enjoyed playing despite that many of us were clearly just not that great at the game, myself included. We’d rather have fun, get drunk occasionally, making inappropriate jokes, probably lose, and move on to the next match.
That time has passed.
The community has turned to a far more competitive nature not unlike its MOBA cousins of LoL and DotA. The community has become a little more toxic than we’d like, and the fact that random players did not appreciate our trollish but effective tactics has lead to some displeasure. That being said, many of the game modes have become less desirable as the community has centered itself around the ‘Conquest or die’ mentality. All of this coupled with broken god releases, unnecessary buffs and nerfs to various gods, we’ve reached our limits.
We’ll still be here. Playing other games like Overwatch and whatever other nonsense you might find us in. The spirit of the SMITE Division will live on. We just want to have fun. And that’s what we’re going to do. I'd like to thank Vic for being an amazing XO. And I'd also like to thank our players for making the division what it was.
Looking forward to playing with you all in the next chapter of Midnight Squadron.
P.S. Do not deny.
