PS4 Gameplay =/= PC Gameplay

PC  |  PS4
So, I'm now level 8 in SMITE on PS4. I couldn't handle the limited selection of gods, so I ended up buying the god pack, since it was on sale.

That said, I knew there were differences, obviously, due to the general user base, the control scheme, etc. However, I'm feeling the differences more and more, and gaining respect for those that have better honed their skills on console.

Not only do I feel handicapped when using a controller (key, but there are also some gods that are just better choices than others, due to the requirement for analog stick precision. Some of my favorites, like Medusa, Bacchus ,and Freya, are mostly able to play the same way, abilities that have more aimed effects via distance (using the Y axis) have been hard for me to adjust to...

Due to this, I want to point out something specific I'd commented on earlier. newbiemj's Serqet guide had him proposing a tanky Serq, to which I had some doubts (though GGF said he was once owned by a tanky Serq). Well, last nig…

Low Level PS4

LowLevel  |  PS4
Welp, this is what happens at early levels of PS4 play so far...maybe it's the same at low levels on PC? I don't know, it's been so long.

First VS Arena - Ymir

First VS Joust - Ra

In that 2nd match, our Fenrir just kept diving into the other team and dying (quickly). He gave up after his 7th death and left the game, but that probably helped. In the last push, I double-sniped the Neith and Aphrodite with my ult.

Wish I had more gods...I've unlocked Artemis and Cupid so far because their favor cost is low.

Coming from PC, controls just feel extremely clunky...I'm used to quickly purchasing, having VGS at my fingertips, etc. Other than gameplay, I feel like a noob again...I keep forgetting to level up my skills, using relics and potions are just not instinctual, etc. I don't think I've glanced more than once at the minimap, just cuz I feel so lost with the controls...

It's clear, based on analog movement, that some gods have a significant advantage over others. Skill shots and …

I thought for a while before deciding to do this. After all, I'm definitely not the best Ymir (in fact, I'm a pretty awful Ymir). I mean, I miss my Frost Breaths enough to be embarrassed about it. But then I thought, eh, I'll get over it.

So for the 2016 SmiteFire Ymir Guide Contest, I've made some gameplay videos, playing one match with select guides. I originally planned to try to record a video for EACH guide, but 2 things stopped me...1) that's a lot of recording...more Ymir guides keep popping up. 2) Some builds are quite similar, which is to be expected.

I will preface this by saying that in no way do the outcomes of the matches affect my end opinion of the guides. I'm not going to blame a guide for my poor play. However, I WILL provide my feedback and thoughts on the match, the items used for the build, etc. Agree or not, hope the videos and my writeups are interesting, and maybe helpful for the original guide makers. Another detail: I based my games on the guides as they …

First Penta

Assault  |  Freya  |  Penta  |  Pentakill
It finally happened. First penta ever. And of course it was in Assault. And of course it was with Freya.

Weird match. Enemy team had 4 physical gods. Ours was balanced, but only for the first 5 minutes or so...then our Kali dropped. She DID try to come back...but immediately dropped again, and we never saw her after that.

A fairly early Witchblade really helped me soak up damage. I really wish our Bacchus didn't start Soul Reaver and got Sovereignty instead. Our entire team seemed to have major issues healing up, and Sov would have helped that.

In any case, my penta came a few minutes before we finished the match. They had just finished our Phoenix and we had been pushed back all the way to our titan. It took me a span of about 30 seconds to get them all, and I didn't actually realize I had gotten the Penta until I heard "congratulations!" or something like that, in...I think it was Freya's voice? I don't know, I didn't have my speaker…
