Bug fixes

UI

Gifting

Fixed a problem where the menu would sometimes close when attempting to look for “Other Players” to send a present to

Fixed a problem where buying a skin within the lobby would seem to form that the chosen skin – but loading into the match would equip the previously selected skin before the acquisition

General Gameplay

Implemented a Hotfix (Live Already) – that attempts to repair the problems where certain gods would seem to be stuck in certain animation states – for instance, Serqet would seem to be repeatedly leaping. These gods weren’t actually firing these abilities repeatedly, it just seemed like they were. This issue should be fixed already or greatly reduced in its chance of occurring.

Fixed a problem where almost any god/skin had an opportunity for its voice pack to become silent for one match

Fixed a problem where it seemed to players who purchased a skin within the god lobby as if the skin was selected, until the loading screen where it might be reverted to their previously selected skin.

Clash Map

Removed an unintended fog volume that was visible within the jungle areas of this mode

Gods

Danzaburou

Fixed a problem where his Ability 02 – Alluring Spirits – might be canceled mid-fire without being placed on cooldown

Fixed a problem where level-up effects would play on Danzaburou when he’s in leaf shape – these will not play on him at that point

Fixed a problem where the buff icons from his passive would sometimes not appear as intended

Fixed a problem where his ult might be interrupted while CC immune and already firing

Hel

Fixed a problem where Hel had unintended reduced healing while in her dark stance

Fixed a problem where Decay hit FX were playing in incorrect ways on enemy gods/minions hit by the effect

Set

Fixed a problem where Set’s sand clones would sometimes deal no damage when passing through enemies.

Ymir

Fixed a problem where it had been possible to stack 2 copies of Frostbite in some scenarios.

Awilix

Fixed a problem where if Awilix was interrupted during the casting time on Suku’s Leap – she would be far away from Suku. If she didn’t leap, she should get another chance to leap. If she is interrupted while leaping – this ability will continue to cooldown.

Aphrodite

Fixed a problem where Love Birds would sometimes not hit enemies clearly within the hit area

Hera

Fixed a typo in her achievement text

The Morrigan

Fixed a problem where her victory/defeat animations could get out of sync

Skins

Poseidon

Fixed a problem where Tidal Surge’s collision was different on the Dreadbead skin.

Nemesis

Fixed visual issues on the targeters for the Primal Vengeance and World Tour skins

Xing Tian

Fixed a problem on the Gecko Gladiator skin where the Gecko heads could get into unintended positions

Ares

Fixed a problem where the Oni skin was using the power 1 chains sound on death – it’ll now play a special chains sound on death

T5 Skins

Fixed a problem where these skins would have silent VGS when using “god” VGS rather than “skin” VGS

Chibi Skins

Fixed a problem where these skins wouldn’t display Nike’s Laurel effects properly

All of those changes apply to all or any Ranked Modes – and only Ranked Modes

Jungle Camp Vision changes

Gods that visit a Jungle Camp on their side of the map will now receive a vision of the in-world and minimap respawn timers for that camp. this is often granted albeit the camp was invaded and cleared by the enemy.

Conquest

Living Conquest Map

In addition to the completely new 8.1 Conquest Map, there’ll be 3 more distinct updates to the map throughout the Season.

Each Update will have a selected theme that follows the SMITE storyline and god release plan.

Each Update will have art and style updates to the map to go with the theme.

Conquest is our best game mode and that we want to extend its ability to receive art and style updates to levels never seen before!

There will still be continual balance changes to the map every update, especially as we gather data and feedback at the beginning of the season.

An Entirely New Conquest Map

Wider map from lane to lane

Longer map from base to base

Completely reworked Jungle with more variance in its paths and geometry. Some paths are especially narrow, et al. are much wider.

New Camps and different camp locations.

Chaos side takes the shape of Tiamat’s Babylonian fortress

The order side may be a totally rebuilt Olympus

Order and Chaos towers have completely new models

Chaos Titan may be a completely new character

Chaos Minions are completely new characters

New Jungle Monsters – Scorpions

Many of our favorite jungle monsters, also because the Order Titan and Minions are going to be keeping their current Season 7 art on the new map.

There are major changes to all or any spawn times, jungle monsters stats, and objectives.
