Hey guys, Rox here. For the last month or so I've been putting a lot of time into this game.
For those of you who do not know it is a third-person MOBA consisting of all skill-shots. I like to imagine it as a cross between traditional MOBA and MMO sense of movement and style. Anyway, the purpose of this thread is to hopefully interest people in checking out the game, it is pretty unique, and a crap-tonne of fun.
If you're just getting into the game there are a few sites already dedicated to this game that can be a great help;
http://www.reddit.com/r/Smite/ - If you're familiar with reddit then you know the deal here. Community posting boards discussing every facet of the game!
http://totalsmite.com/ - An almost TeamLiquid style site. Constantly updated news and events happening in the community. One of a few that have popped up but this one for me makes the best impression.
http://forum.hirezstudios.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=276&sid=beacf1f9d4afd8168c6d89c27add717c - The official SMITE forums from Hi-Rez. Always a great source for patch and bug fixing information. Further more the dev/mod team are really involved with the community, so you can always find sneak-peaks for whats in store with the future.
And lastly - http://www.twitch.tv/roxsick - My stream, I stream quite often. I interact with chat and always discuss balance/meta etc. If you ever feel like stopping by for a quick chat or playing some games please do! Any chance to get more people involved in this game I'll take. I really want to see it flourish in vVv.
Please don't hesitate to add me in game, my ign is 'roxsick' and if you need a beta key and are interest in testing it out just let me know!

Yes there is, you can create an insta-cap PvP only toon. And from there you can join multiple different "battle-ground-esq" instances off the bat, also you can spectate GvG matches, its really entertaining.
ReV I believe the idea he's trying to get accross is exactly what he said in his edit: A huge majority of people live "horrible" lives because we don't know how to forgive, how to be tolerant, how to claim what is fair, how to understand, how to choose for the common good, etc.
Thats pretty straight forward, I think he mentioned that a diety or prohpet of anykind is beside the point to which you seem to agree with.
Either way I agree to a smaller extent with your view on the issue of unfortunate circumstance, they seem legitimate in certain scenarios. Not in the mood to write anything deep or thought provoking right now so I'll leave it at that.
