Your favorite team. You've been rooting for them all season long. When the big tournament rolls around -- say, SMITE's recent Spring Masters event -- they play one best of three and... that's it. They lost. They're out of the tournament. Is this good tournament design?
No game is perfect. Existing aspects can be improved; new features can be implemented. Inspired by r/smite posts, social media chatter and years of playing SMITE and other games in the same vein, here is a compilation of the most-wanted features from which the third-person MOBA could benefit.
These days, Hi-Rez seems to tiptoe around players' feelings: MMR is hidden, only wins are counted on their official stats site and there's no way to get a solid look at how you're faring in many aspects of the game. Let's bring back meaning to the stats page.

Welcome to a new list-style post that's going to be put out on a regular basis. Meet The SMITE Scrub 5. You know how sometimes you're pretty sure you just lost the game? Yeah, that happens a lot. Here are the top five moments when you start to get that vibe.

While right now this page is just a pretty image and an introductory post, watch this space — soon it'll be flooded with regular and original SMITE content, discussion and interviews.
