For the past three hours, I have tried running Smite but at load up is says "Game is Down" in place of the "Play" button.

I just want to know if anyone else is experiencing this problem and how to fix it.

Game is Down means the game is patching. And please do not post this on the News forum

Game is down actually doesn't mean that they're patching. At least not this time. You cant just have 300.000 people trying to log into your servers and read the patchnotes, well you can't if you have servers like Hi-Rez. So the game and their website went down yesterday and they couldn't fix the problem for at least 4 hours. Don't know if its fixed yet, since I'm not on the pc.

I had a similar problem. I logged in last night and tried entering a game, but it wouldn't let me press the accept button. I exited and tried to log back in, but have been getting "unable to connect to server" until just now. I'm guessing it being patch day the servers were full and many people are having issues. As a general rule I never expect the game to function on patch day. Also if this isn't the place to post to find out what's happening with the game, then where else should we go?

I'd actually say this problem is newsworthy since this was an interesting issue. I believe it is finally over but the game was messed up all day yesterday/night.

Apparently HiRez needs to work on their server capacity. I'm honestly more surprised that so many people logged on at the same time.
