Chiron, the Great Teacher

LORE
Chiron is a being of conflicted duality. Two opposites in one form. For all appearances, he is a centaur, bearing the torso of a man and the body of a horse. Brutish, crude, and violent, the centaurs are not civilized creatures. Yet, Chiron is a scholar, a poet, an astrologer, and a teacher. And for all the wonder and glory of the world, he tries to impart upon his illustrious students, Chiron, it seems, must constantly teach them the art of war.

Fame and legend are the hallmarks of his pupils. Perseus, who beheaded Medusa, Ajax, who battled bravely against Troy, and Achilles, who Chiron practically raised from infancy, all are figure of renown. But it is for their acts of violence, not art or science, for which songs are sung of these heroes. Chiron would prefer the world a more contemplative place where mankind adored nature and kindled bonds of friendship over scholarly discussions.

Though, to his wizened eyes, the bring has been reached and the world he finds so fascinating titles toward annihilation. Set aside are his books and scrolls, the easel and brush, and taken up are his bow and armor. On cloven hooves, Chiron gallops to the field. To save all that he holds dear, Chiron, the Great Teacher, will go to war.
 
 

ABILITIES

Chiron Passive
HERBAL MEDICINE (PASSIVE)
Every 12s Chiron collects herbs for a poultice, which increases all healing Chiron receives (+10%) for each poultice he carries. Each time he uses an ability, the lowest Health ally within 30 units is healed for (30 + 5 per god level over 5s).

Max Stacks: 3.
 
Chiron 1
TRAINING EXERCISE
Chiron warns his teammates to evade the area, removing Crowd Control effects so they can escape before it explodes, damaging and Crippling all enemies in the area. (70/125/180/235/290 + 80% of your Physical Power.)
Cost: 55/60/65/70/75.
Cooldown: 15s.
 
Chiron 2
MASTERFUL SHOT
Chiron passively marks his enemies as targets when he damages them with Basic Attacks or his Ultimate ‘Centaurus’, reducing their Physical Protections by 3%. He may activate this ability to fire seeking arrows at all marked targets within range, damaging (55/100/145/190/235 + 70% of your Physical Power) and slowing them (23/27.5/30/32.5/35%) for 3 seconds.
Cost: 65.
Cooldown: 14/13/12/11/10s.
 
Chiron 3
GIDDYUP!
Chiron gallops forward, damaging enemies (70/95/120/145/160 +50% of your Physical Power), knockup up minions, and kicking enemy gods behind him. Chiron may fire Basic Attacks while charging.
Cost: 70/75/80/85/90.
Cooldown: 16s.
 
Chiron 4
CENTAURUS
Chiron is transformed into a constellation, and can fire three long-distance shots (100/145/190/235/280 +90% of your Physical Power), even through walls. If Chiron would be killed during this ability, he does not die until he runs out of time or shots. Killing an enemy in this state returns Chiron to life with Health equal to the damage dealt instead.
Cost: 80/90/100/110/120.
Cooldown: 90s.

MAPS – CLASH BETA


“Clash” is a new casual game mode in which players will play as a team of five against an opposing team to push down the enemy Titan. The map features a large open center with two lanes, as well as a split base where the Titan spawns, further away from the fountain than in other modes. “Clash” plays like a mixture between the fast paced combat of Arena and the pushing and strategy that Conquest offers. The average game time is 20 minutes. This queue provides normal rewards.

After a successful technical test on the Public Test Server we are ready to gather more feedback! While we already have some plans in store for changes, we wanted to get a large sample of feedback before we make any large scale changes to the map. Clash will be active for a limited time until December 1st.

MISC

New Early Surrender Logic

  • Players will now be given the option to Surrender a game early in the event of someone disconnecting early in a match.
  • If a player fails to connect within the first 30 seconds of the game launching, the user who failed to connect will have until the 5 minute mark (5:00 on the game timer) to connect to the game. If the player fails to connect, the team with the disconnected player will be able to surrender early. Only 50% of the players in a game mode (rounded up) will need to vote yes to pass this surrender vote
  • Players will be notified via a chat message as to the current state of the game and the option to Early Surrender.
    A ranked game that is lost by an Early Surrender, players will only receive half TP loss, while the disconnected player will receive full TP loss. Players on the winning team will receive points as normal.

Removed Twitch Live and Broadcasting tabs.
We are removing Twitch Integrated Broadcasting as a feature in SMITE. This feature was rarely used and was increasingly difficult for us to support, leading to a bad user experience when players tried to use it. We are looking at future ways to reward Twitch Ymir to users who would want to obtain him, and hopefully we will have more to communicate in the future.

  • God skins can now be purchased without owning the god.
  • Added a Neith transition screen when loading into the Basic Tutorial.
  • Cards with animations now show in tooltips.
  • Fixed Recent Achievements section not updated.
  • Fixed match details not showing when clicking on Recent Matches in Gods → History.
  • Misc improvements have been made for lower spec machines.
