Smite Tier List

Since its release in 2014, Smite has steadily become one of the best free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games in the market. The developer, Hi-Rez Studios, has successfully crafted an engaging world with balanced gameplay and memorable characters.

The main ingredient to all of Smite’s flavor is its roster of characters. This consists of gods, goddesses, and all manner of creatures inspired by Greek, Norse, Chinese, Egyptian, and Hindu mythology.

This tier list is a genuine attempt to rank these heroes – all 110 of them – to help players choose the units that would fit their or their team’s play style.

These characters are decent in most scenarios in a match. While not as powerful as their higher-tiered counterparts, these characters have the potential to do well especially in pro matches where picks for overpowered characters tend to get banned.

Conclusion

Like in all other MOBAs, success in SMITE is dependent on the player’s skill in conjunction with the abilities of the characters they use. Using an S-Tier as a beginner will not guarantee a good game, neither will a veteran using an F-Tier guarantee a bad one.

To truly be helpful to your team, you must recognize and practice on the game’s intricacies, character balances, and strategies.
