Last month I started to get bored with pretty much exclusively playing single player games on PC, hell even multiplayer games on PC I play on my own with the most recent one being Battle Block Theater(but I can’t play online in this even if I wanted to though since I keep getting errors), and it starts to get pretty boring. So I decided to venture in some free to play games since I don’t feel like spending any money on PC games at the moment since I have a few Vita games that have priority. I tried a few shooting ones like Loadout and Warframe but neither caught my attention, especially Warframe since I have more fun playing that with my friends on PS4. Then decided to try War Thunder and Marvel Heroes but both held my interest for like, what, an hour or two at most? Just when I was about to give up hope and just continue to slug through playing games alone I decided to try the MOBA genre. I decided to give DOTA 2 another shot(third times the charm, right?) and still didn’t like it. I also participated in the Infinite Crisis and thought it was really boring, played the same as DOTA 2 which isn’t a good thing.
So since League and DOTA look the same I didn’t even bother wasting my time downloading that. So lastly I decided to give Smite a go, it would be the last one I tried before I gave up on my quest to find a multiplayer game that I can play on PC. At first it wasn’t that great, but it was miles ahead of DOTA and Infinite Crisis that’s for sure. I played about 3-4 hours(after all the tutorials were done) and it was 3-4 hours of just straight up losing. We all know after a while of losing repeatedly you start to get pretty bored. But before I uninstalled I decided to play 1 final round of Joust. The two people in my team were familiar with each other, I could tell from the chat. I went with Ymir and finally got some kills, around 4 or 5. I was amazed because it was the first time I got that many kills in a single game. Normally I’d get only one kill, and that was if I was lucky, and a bunch of deaths, normally 10 and up. We won and I just went off in the chat box with excitement for winning. So I’m back in the main menu and one of the players in my team private messages me and asked if I’d like to win some more and invited me to play with him and his friends. They gave me some good advice and told me to play as Neith since she’s powerful but also extremely easy to play as, during this match was when I fell in love with the game. Neith played great, gave me so much movement and also a lot crowd control.
I actually ended up doing the best in my team during that match. I got 8 kills and only died once. I continued played with these guys for two weeks and find myself playing Smite more than I play my other games. I played so much I decided to buy the Ultimate God Pack and it made the game even more fun. Although I do admit when you’re on a losing streak the game can get extremely tedious, especially since matches go be longer than an hour(which is why I no longer play conquest, joust all the way, baby). The matches of the day also help prevent the game from getting too boring, my favorite one is classic domination, wish it was a regular game mode. The Bee God is an absolute beast in that mode. just plant a bunch of hives around 1 of the giants and you’re golden. They recently added a new god as well, Janus. he’s freaking awesome as well. One of my favorite mages in the game.
If you’re looking for an online game to play on PC I highly recommend Smite. It can be challenging at first if you’re new to how MOBAs work(like I am) but once you learn the basics it just clicks. Also if you’re new, play as Neith, weaver of WINNING!
