Smite a new Moba developed by Hi-Rez Studios is currently in closed beta and I am here to share information and invite anybody interested to the ongoing beta. To do so I am creating this small FAQ.
What is Smite?
Smite is a third person wasd-controlled Moba. The catch is the change of perspective compared to regular mobas. The third person view allows to enjoy the experience in a different way and creates a special play style focusing on Skill Shots.
Yes every auto attack and almost every ability has to be properly aimed and released, many of them having flight times. This creates a higher skill play than having auto aiming abilities.
How does that work out? Any vids?!
It works just great, after getting used to it, you can have tons of fun. Here the official smite videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/smitegame
Okay, but how do I get to play Smite?
This is easy, every beta tester has a Refer a Friend button in the game, means anybody already playing can invite ALL friends, if those choose to play of course.
But I do not know anyone playing, how can I get an invite?
Simple, I created an email-address with the sole purpose of providing smite keys:
I do not encourage posting private emails in public forums as this, but if you really wish to you can simply leave an address in this thread or message me at the address above. I do know that there are others giving out keys and I support anybody increasing the amount of players for Smite.
How do I register a key?
That is simple! Go to www.smitegame.com and create an account. I recommend downloading and installing the client there and registering/ entering the key from the ingame interface as it seems to behave more reliable.
I will post up questions and answers as they pop up.
