we’ve got a new what by mr spear and it’s just love it classic you know new new wa yeah i really like the line quality kind of like a little bit graphic kind of it kind of reminds me of your style anna because you you use lines very loosely you’ll you’ll add like certain rhythm to lines it’s not just one set line you’ll add like you know a lot of that movement little pieces everywhere little lines everywhere i love that oh well heck if this reminds you of my style that makes me feel really good i think this is worthless yeah it’s very good stuff i definitely love all of you can like see the movement and the energy in their line work so that’s beautiful definitely also like props to the scales on the snake uh snake tail that stuff’s always difficult for artists i mean personally speaking like how figuring out like how you want to interpret scales on a snake either you want to go like and draw each one separately or you want to just yeah yeah use a brush so very good job mr spear thank you so much for this new wonderful moving on to this next one by our darling one of our favorites emma’s paint doodles um a little bit more of a serious one because they usually give us

i think oh the colors the pops of red holes and in the morgan’s hair i love that i think it’s beautiful the detail it’s such a simplistic way of drawing obviously ms paint but like the lines are well defined it’s awesome it’s great to see this style from you so thank you so much emma’s painting yes they always nail it too so yeah especially like the facial expressions they’re just so good all right moving on to this next one we got another another piece that’s going to just quit maybe quench our thirst we’ll see oh this is by darlene um and this is this is an apollo redraw apparently one of our community’s own um had a contest it was an apollo uh rebrand or a redraw of him remodel him that sword um and this was by miss darlene and i personally i thought this one was great i love it yes it’s beautiful oh very good the amount of detail and like the hair and the i love the interpretation of of his weapon i think yeah cool same and don’t get me wrong like og apollo was great a little finger guns blast in his little like jimmy neutron hair we gotta love it but i don’t know i think this one fits really nice with the general aesthetic that we’ve given our roman greek gods lately so i like it you know we’ll see what happens it’s great moving on thank you so much miss darlene emma darlene this next one this is by smite vsdt and they are the actual um that’s the the person that had the apollo redraw contest set up so great shout out to them but uh they actually did a fenway or um oh god fafnir after summer how many times i’ve done that you know like there’s so many of them but yeah we have uh fafnir as a human and then his dragon uh form and this is just really cute yes yeah where’s this pool party at cause i wanna go i know i love it i i personally think summer skins are my favorite type of skin that we do for uh spike god so this is great look at his little chest here it’s so cute i love like the detail like between like the see-through bits of the hammer it’s really cool like seeing the stuff on the other side how they did the color and on the floaties oh i like that he really did a a good job of showing like material as well not just like you know oh he just has floaties on they did a really good job with that yeah this is great i love it this little hat just play a little backwards out a little bit i love it thank you smite bsbt moving on uh we’ve got this amazing piece i love it so much this is by k paro and it’s our girl bastard yes sassy oh my gosh the the like the lighting and stuff on this one is really really beautiful it’s like the thing i can see the shadow of her what would you call that headdress yeah like headpiece i guess yeah i love it i i really love the softness of it like the eye isn’t that harsh either there’s really no harsh colors at all but you completely read everything um it’s super cute and also like you know it’s nice to see uh the gods like getting zoomed up and and see their faces so this is so cute also we haven’t had that in a minute though yeah get our girl in there and as an artist that hand is immaculate that is 10 10 hands i just had draw hands so i got right i just draw them like

ellen for being pick of the show uh so yeah guys that was the art show we are continuously getting a lot more art as it goes so we’re going to try our best in the next couple shows to show off your art but for now we’re going to give you guys a little challenge we used to do it and we’re going to keep doing it we’re going to give each other 60 seconds to draw i guess like our favorite spike god in cat ears let’s do that yeah all right go go go go oh gee oh god oh no oh my gosh i he’s not my favorite but i love him and we talked about him earlier okay this is definitely a reflection of my entire art career oh i’m getting fired after this like really why does she work for us this is trace what i like mine is all shaky too because i’ve had too much caffeine and crying under pressure and i’m pretty sure this is oh god this is so bad just wait until you see this one it’s very good uh it’s like so bad it’s good okay all right anna please let’s uh let’s do it one two three can you see it [Laughter] oh my god i love it wait who’s yours is that is that kukulkan [Laughter] oh my god all right well guys we will be selling these on ebay for maybe like a grand each um so look out for that but thank you so much again everyone for tuning in for the uh high-res art show anna as always um my co-host i love her so much and yeah coming up stay tuned all the shows join us william bye guys see you later welcome back everyone as we show for you from the amazing art show that we just watched and forward eventually to oh my god we’ve got a little fun segment here again i’m here with tina and anna as we uh we’re gonna discuss uh some would you rather so just because we know it charybdis is kind of the talk of the day as of right now everyone’s very very excited for the new god but what would make most sense is to compare her with i guess sibling i don’t know where or like how they’re related that’s something for the the designers to talk about but with stella because back in the day the phrase would my er stuck between a rock and a hard place was stuck between zilla and charybdis because you’re choosing a giant sea monster who will eat you off a cliff or a giant sea monster that is going to sink you into a whirlpool there was no winning if you were a roman seafarer so it really really sucked to be out there on a ship we’re not going to have to choose anything that devastating i don’t want to get eaten by a monster or get sunken in a ship but i will ask you guys some fun would you rather questions anyway just to see where they’d be going and the first one this was pretty simple right would you rather be covered in fur or covered in scales well sir i’m already covered in fur because i’m half peruvian yeah and i don’t shave that’s well you know what i guess we’re technically mammals in the long way that works out it’s fur okay there you go you’re lucky you can’t see this today well that one went way faster than i thought it was so i have to go immediately and find the next one the uh this one one is is uh gonna be a much more difficult choice for you because well that’s not true i think i know the exact choice for this one it’s going to be very fast very very no matter what so would you rather only eat food that somebody else has chewed or you only eat raw food raw food yeah when i read it back i was like this is gonna be so easy sushi i’ll eat a chicken rod get out of here that’s it forces your diet you no longer get to have the well i guess that’s as healthy chicken as you would like but yeah no there’s no way you’re gonna eat food that other people choose like that that abc right but abc already been chewed i like it christina didn’t have words she just made like the she heard the first half and she was like whatever the second half of this question is that’s the answer it was a hard one yeah all right a hard one well let’s see okay every shirt you wear to be kind of itchy or you can only use one ply toilet paper uh sure wait one all day holiday i’m a i’m a full wrap like at least 20 times can i use other means like a bidet i guess you know what like that’s a that’s like that’d be that’s like the way to skirt around it oh yeah yeah like you choose one fly and then you’re like well i’m just gonna bidet it up right like i don’t need the toilet paper yeah that’s that’s a very american question that was a very american would you rather europe doesn’t even care about that all right let’s see do i have one that’s it’s got to be all right it’s an evil one know the history of every object you touch or be able to talk to animals be able to talk to animals easy i need harder ones i should have vetted all of these they’re all they’re all going one way i guess like for both of you like at least for in it like you get to talk to your dog right like that’s amazing immediately oh yeah i already i already talked to him we have a full communication so we’re good to extend that oh my god yes i just feel like i like to ride things and i feel like every time there’s a big animal and i’m lazy i just want to be like hey i don’t want to be an like can you give me a lift you know you know just like i don’t just you want to climb on a cow i don’t want to climb on a cow i want to ask for like a time on him like if you’re swimming in the ocean a shark comes up i want to be able to be like hey please don’t you know just yeah can we work something out here yeah i get that i got that yeah yeah yeah a nice way yeah like not just the the fun conversations but like the genuine like hey man look i’m just we’re just trying to like we got to work this out this is amicable like we’re partners here right we’re partners exactly all right so this one feels like it’s going to be a little more difficult would you rather be forced to dance every time you hear music or be forced to sing along to any song that you hear i like horses you sing along to every song that i hear how’s their singing voice i worked at coldstone and they would make us uh uh dance to like tips so you’ve already lived in this world yeah i’ve already watched that hellish nightmare so i’m gonna go with singalong because that’s actually pretty fun they made you dance like every time like what kind of what kind of game yeah no like they would say like you have to put a penny in even if they put a penny and you have to sing the banana song which is like this huge ordeal it was awful no thanks this one look hey not sponsored by goldstone but coolstone hit us up you never know look there’s an ice cream you mirror in the game look we’re just saying it apparently uh look maybe anna will even do the banana song one more time not now only if they sponsor no no no no look at me only if they sponsor hold on that’s gonna be the i felt that look through the internet that was very dangerous i felt like i was treading into some dangerous waters there which again appropriate for the day kryptos being the talk of the town as of right now but that’s gonna i guess end it for the would you rather and we can instead start to move forward oh my god is gonna be coming up next with tina here and i think you said clumsy is gonna be coming around so without further ado let’s just go ahead and jump right to it hello everyone welcome to oh my god a show where we talk about all things my god and today we have oh wrong side we have clumsy yeah yes welcome back clumsy it’s good to be here as always so today we’re going to be talking about morgan le fay and clumsy here um has helped design her so yeah once we get into that though we always have to start with um laura in 60 seconds so are you guys ready because uh go all right so morgan’s relationship with our partner varies but usually she is introduced as parker’s half-sister the daughter of his mother agreeing and her first husband jordan with english depictions of the 14th century she often alerts the fingers of appearing at the fringes of arthurians for it she always wants to like pot itself in the northeast or she steals excalibur and gives it to a lover athlon who i’ve never heard of pretending that they overthrow our fair rulings however arthur forces his team to cover his excalibur but morgan steals the scabbard which has healing powers or some indirectly contributing to carter’s fatal wounding in his final battle morgan also conspires against arthur’s queen quinabeer sometimes because they are rivals for the love of arthur’s famous knight i don’t know if that’s true or not but yes um uh that’s it yeah that’s all i have hey i did it there we go it was really really short but i do want to say that while i was reading this i wasn’t sure like i had some notes down here but um if i wanted to mention because i was reading some other stuff where she is like it said something about she being a queen of avalon and that instead of actually being mean to arthur she heals him after a battle or some so our representation is like it’s like so swayed it’s like either she’s this like evil uh half-sister or she’s the healing avalon queen like for sure so morgan lafaye’s stories it’s like they’re ancient it’s a very old story it’s been written by many different authors and some of the original tellings were absolutely this morgan lafayette there’s almost more of a fairy queen with like this council of fairies that ruled an avalon this mythical place and king arthur was brought there and she was a much more benevolent uh like person was much more benevolent character but as the writings grew on like went on over time and as we got different authors she became a much more sinister and evil character which is kind of basically the kind of story that you went towards and yeah and that’s more so the direction which we went with smite but why me she is okay and she has no like relationship with uh the lady in the lake right that’s not her is it it’s no it’s not the same character no okay okay okay because i was like really confused while i was reading this but there are absolutely there could be inspirations like i wouldn’t put that against them like there was a lot of different authors that kind of put their pen in the ink in this one right and since there’s so many arthurian like baddies like there’s also mordred right yup that’s right so why was there a reason we chose morgan and not like you know more more dread or i mean even a good character like gwenevere or someone well i mean we had king arthur in merlin right so we had these two you know legendary arthurian male figures that you know they went hand in hand they were duo we released them pretty much together so we wanted to make sure that we would when we delved back into the arthurian pantheon we got kind of a counterpart right it just almost made sense to either bring mordred or morgan le fay and we wanted you know a female arthurian representation rather than just another male one and mordred might have been a little bit too similar to the rest but morgan left we thought and when we go into talking about more about the character in their kit was a great reflection on both of those characters right they’re almost you know they’re just a great uh she’s a great antagonist to those two right because if we did guinevere then she would have been good as well and there those two are already good right it’s a good idea what you’re saying exactly yeah and she’s not as i guess she’s not as cool as morgan vinovir is like actually human right she doesn’t have any powers not that i’m aware of but there’s always some fun stuff that we can do and some twists to be brought i’m sure if we if we were to bring gwenevere into the game we’d be able to find some a great way to adapt her personality and her kit into our story and you know bring our own smite twist as we usually do but i think the players and we on the team are really excited to bring morgan le fay into smite cool okay so let’s start by um looking at some of her preliminary concepts um what were we looking for when we were um like making her like why does she have a sword for instance yeah absolutely why doesn’t she look like why is she in armor that that’s honestly probably the biggest questions that we had um when we were talking about morgan fans yeah you look at these awesome concept arts we really wanted to find this balance between you know who morgan le faye is in the stories you know like we already talked about that she’s not quite the fairy queen and smite’s representation but we didn’t want her to just be you know yet another typical you know fanciful mage with just cloth based armor and we thought that might just be almost too easy in a way almost less interesting so we wanted to put our own twist on it we want her to be a pure reflection of both merlin with magic as well as arthur right so she’s got her own basic version of excalibur that’s one of the things that we absolutely adore and we you can see almost all these images have some sort of fanciful awesome looking sword almost that you get like at a max level and an mmo we wanted that to be her cursed blade that reflected and matched arthur’s own excalibur and just like you said in her stories we absolutely drew upon you know her quest to almost steal excalibur and steal the scabbard and really use that for her own gains so she’s even got her own crown as well we talked about the old story she’s kind of like the queen of avalon but in this version of boring left she’s not really a queen but she sees herself as almost the queen of camelot you know she’s royal because she’s a half sister she’s the half sister in only some of the stories in other stories she’s actually not related to arthur at all what yeah there’s there’s a lot more going on there yeah it is but we wanted to show that she she believes she is a ruler as well she believes she is you know on par and superior to king arthur and merlin and we wanted to portray that with her her persona and as well as with her visuals so she’s got that sweet looking armor because we wanted her to feel almost like a battle mage almost you know someone that dove into the fight and wasn’t afraid of getting her hands dirty too right and i just thought like when i first saw these concepts i actually thought she wasn’t a mage because of how she looked like totally you know like you could you could like it’s kind of like um how huang is like you always think like he’s wielding a sword like he can’t be a mage but yep same with her like you can totally do it you just yeah we wanted to subvert the expectations here a little bit but we still kept some magical elements you know obviously she’s using her sword to attack from range um unlike aokwang who’s more melee based and she’s still got like that cloak and her the like the fur frills around her hood i really wanted to make sure that we kept uh and the artist and the team wanted to really make sure that we kept some feeling of the fact that she’s not just completely clad in armor and in her in her lore she doesn’t actually have a sword right she’s building a sword well under law i’m sure she does a whole bunch of other stuff but like she doesn’t have a legendary sword like excalibur that was our own twist to make sure that she felt like she was um a mirror of arthur oh cool i see what you’re saying like on the same level like you could put them next to each other and they’ll basically be like a compliment to one each another there you go yep oh cool i get it now i get it and in the same kind of vein we had those parallels with her and um king arthur we wanted to make sure that she had her own parallels with merlin as well right she and many of the stories she was uh she learned underneath merlin merlin was you know her mentor and you know they split ways and that could have been in a disagreement or if you know just over time but that’s why even her magic in the game we didn’t want to just do another elemental three stance page that was that was absolutely on the table but we wanted to try and play more of the hexes and the curses uh something maybe she learned with her own twists and her own you know shadowy versions of her magic uh but we even kept you know like the dragon apparition as kind of a nod to merlin as well as the the triple casting on her first ability the sigil mastery to kind of show that she has kind of learned from merlin but adapted her to her own needs and her own wants oh i see what you’re saying so she’s like taking his what she’s learned from him and then making it like evil or like exactly like she’s dragging dude yeah she’s got this whole you know symbolism with her sigils um and is much less on the elemental side but she’s still you can still see the perils between merlin’s magic and hers so does she have like any friends at all then uh like you said in the in the stories there’s ackle on her um her lover in one of them uh and i believe you know she it’s less friends and more people that she can find underneath her sweater yeah minions and people who would willingly listen to her even if she didn’t care for their feelings kind of thing okay so she friends with this dragon then that’s her definitely her pet dragon for sure it’s her apparition her apparition what does that mean it’s her ghostly summon right it’s not someone it’s not a it’s not a pet that’s always around her at all times she brings it into existence with her will oh okay that’s really cool and that’s that’s the r and the reason you you made this into one of her abilities is because of the tied to merlin exactly right merlin has his own dragonfire ability on in his fire stance and we wanted to bring you know morgan lafaye king arthur miller they always have these dragonic themes in the arthurian legends and we thought it made complete sense for morgan herself to have her own corrupted version of a dragon as well right because and also that it’s like his name is pendragon so so it’s a good little like ha you know yeah like we’re equal it’s like i have an evil dragon exactly pen dragon [Laughter] that was a stupid joke um anyway um yeah cool okay so what where did you guys have any difficulties like um when you were you know designing her making her kit like i’m sure you had different varieties of kids like you said you wanted to make her like a a what a switcher we didn’t want her to be a stan switcher we wanted her to be something like that to play along that angle of merlin i mean i think morgan levy was a really interesting challenge because you know usually we fall into kind of two categories one we’re kind of you know not struggling but we’re trying to really delve into the stories or delve into the you know and find creative angles to really explore what this what characters can do while morgan le faye i feel like there’s just such a plethora of ideas there’s there’s so many things to draw upon that is almost a struggle to narrow down which version of morgan levy we wanted to create so um oh god yeah i think the one we came with was just the one that resonated the most with all the different teams but there were absolutely different version of morgan face kits or different abilities that were just so much fun and we you know may i don’t want to go into them too much because we may inspire them uh for future god kids so i would say that the toughest part of morgan le faye was really finding out the version that we wanted for smite um versus for example like people might have expected more of a seductive morgan faye one that played with the mind a little bit more and believe me there were iterations upon that but we wanted to really have this mirrored version of both merlin and right sure there was that too but uh i think the version we brought to for morgan left into the game was absolutely the one that felt the closest to all of us on the team and we’re very very happy with the way she came out no i really like this depiction of her because usually you know in uh popular culture she’s always like very sexy and mischievous and deceitful so this one’s like a different take and i appreciate that thank you oh thank you clumsy i really appreciate you joining us here today again and talking about morgan [Music] until next time folks thanks for tuning in to oh my god bye welcome back everyone another fantastic episode of oh my god we just got to sit through but again we’re here for we’re here for the the real like deal breakers we’re trying to figure it out we got to brainstorm some more smite themed would you rathers and so of course again sticking with the theme which so far they’ve gotten a little more wild i think they get progressively weirder as time goes on so we’re gonna keep going through the the same tracks as it would the first one a little bit easier i think wash cerberus the nice big three-headed puppy or be washed by camazotz to the demon bat washed by camouflage wait it would be fun washed by surgery you’re here for the experience not for ease you’re here for the experience old leathery wings just kind of like splashing you and you’re just having a nice little day you make a day out of it you can make a tycoon that’s what you’re saying and then he can like rub you with his like with this like leather wing yeah exactly tina you and i are on the exact same are you right you’re right you right you’re right you’re right wet dog smells bad too so no and well i was trying to figure out how like is cerberus like a well-trained dog and is like really good at taking a bath or is cerberus like bellini my dog that that absolutely hates water and if you try to get her near it throws a fit like there’s there’s two sides if it’s a really easy time i think cerberus makes it fun if if it’s cerberus you know he’s gonna be a bad dog because he literally lives in hell like yeah a bad dog man i guess washed by camazotz is the right one i don’t know i don’t i don’t know if i like either of these anymore oh well we’ve got kamazotz is the overwhelming majority here so yeah i guess that one wins we’ll move to the next one so this is a kind of a question on whether you like to sleep hot or sleep cold would you like to sleep near your mirror or sleep in your soul the frost giant or a literal flame i would do soul because i hate being cold i love the heat i love it i if my room isn’t at a balmy 80 get out of there when you sleep at night i love it when it’s hot oh baby okay lizard queen [Laughter] terrarium over here all right um let’s i’m gonna say humor just because yimmer’s i used to call him yammer all the time i used to say weimer for the fun of it i could i could stand with you on humor um i don’t know i just feel like uh i could like put her on his ice block and sleep on top of the fur that’s not the ice block and then like snuggle snuggle like you know those new houses in in in in in in in tourists they’re trying to navigate places yeah yeah they literally sleep on ice cubes and it is yeah and the glory is like you’re near not necessarily like you don’t have to like cuz like look if you’re gonna sleep on soul like that you’re gonna your skin’s gonna burn if you sleep on your mirror you’re gonna get frostbite there’s no good answers there i’d say you’re here as well so we’ll move to the first the this one uh would you would you rather french kiss bakasura or give cthulhu a prostate exam i don’t think there’s a winning and i think we have decided it’s not like like not face making sure you get tummy vodka sir tummy mouth yeah the big hole is a big hole i’d make out and freak like that also like you know have you seen his body it’s just cut up it’s just that body is just a mouth with arms i know he’s so hot i just thought of like four different jokes that i’m i’m pretty sure none of which are something i’m going to say on broadcast we’ll push and it can’t be as much different than doing it to a cow or a horse well i was like i was going to say like size wise it’s probably not like you might find some treasures in there yeah you probably just you probably just have to walk in honestly just you can walk in it might be that big like take a a light with you like a light yeah yeah yeah this one’s good all right scrape some souvenirs take the samples oh this is truly a descendant of madness all right would you rather brush well bakasura’s showing up a couple of times we’ll brush bakasura’s teeth every single day or never brush your own teeth brush teeth everyday we understand you gotta stay fresh baby you gotta stay fresh baby yeah that’s it look it and at one point it just becomes another necessity in the morning like you get up you brush your own teeth you brought back a serious deeds it’s just a thing yeah well it’s uh look i think i learned something in this segment i’m not sure what though i’ll reflect on it for a little bit i know we’ve got midfield coming up next this month in spite so you guys stay tuned keep watching and see how mifflin does taken over for this new segment well i guess not news segment new host for the same old segment for this month in smite smite fans welcome to this month in smite it’s been a little bit since we’ve done one of these now hosted by your man mifflin i’m the caster guy sometimes i stream on twitch.tv smite game and i’m gonna go ahead and get it started off just right with some competitive players let’s check in with the king adapting ultimate incoming adapting couldn’t quite survive the enemy fountain meanwhile ducky not nearly as kind i kind of even be able to you know look into did ducky just pull him into his tower and then laugh at him disrespectful so let’s run with that breznov also finding himself with the lack of ability for human empathy i can probably kill this guy yeah that was illegal i’m high-res and i have the authority to say that so before the boss man gets mad at me i’m going to go ahead and sneak one more curse clip in dude my push to mute button keeps what’s it called unbinding out now i can’t mute this entire thing okay are you guys noticing a trend pros ex-pros goats x goats they all have zero respect for the sanctity of human life not all our competitive players are nearly as stoic as adapting terrorim he can barely contain his excitement no no come on don’t dash no he’s got dash as well why does everyone have dash how’d you

cat makes it look easy okay surprise not all danza burrows are built the same even if the results are equally good i couldn’t tell if it was like south or north like the north island i stole it this next segment’s called community bloopers but it doesn’t super work because it’s not a tv show or a movie and there aren’t really bloopers because it’s not scripted but it kind of embodies the vibe you guys will get it let’s just jump into a clip makes you feel like it’s it’s simpler to understand only having the one option then go for it all right you know what i don’t care never mind guess we won’t be seeing any morgan nerfs anytime soon omar though doing his best to replicate what zed’s capable of doing oh that is shredding me alive i’m dead unfortunate for omar after seeing that i had to deep dive his channel and lo and behold there was a little another nugget of gold is while that was happening chef jj on some other battleground was putting on display the peaks of human cruelty i don’t know if i like this plan i’m gonna be honest wait that that last play wasn’t supposed to be here this is the bloopers segment mifflin memes memes only from here on out all right i can rectify

what the voice line sounds like i got a bit of an accent while also being a bear oh and we got a fun in there that’s just that’s just all of the boxes oh yeah we’re checking them all and getting punched by them all probably so next up this one is the one i’m super excited about we have confectionary capri let’s see that oh yeah oh ho ho there look at all of the other candy skins they’re making um they’re greeting him welcoming him into the club yeah it’s appropriate he’s huge just the biggest one yeah very much so and wow look at them in game so what’s cool about this is that this is a community concept skin actually uh provided to us by jade rapid so thank you so much this is insanely awesome looking and a part of the court of midnight event look at the sprinkles i love it sprinkles [Laughter] one of my most plain guys left shoulder what is it it’s like a like a cake and some cookies and stuff like a smiley face yeah it’s like a oh it’s like a little it’s like a little

space crusader chest this is another new chest coming with the uh eight point for the week five bonus update and this is coming with the solar navi gator sobek skin let’s uh let’s look into that i’m really excited for this skin that name that name though it’s a little painful right it’s so good i’ll have you know i had to practice not to like i keep wanting to say navi gator and like miss the pun so to practice this one is amazing and you can even see that little uh there was a little like rocket gator in the background those what we use for his ultimate um which kind of swim around him and this is like a very new interesting theme kind of imagining a whole new like sci-fi like stylized universe not quite cartoony but you could possibly consider him a rival or ally of that vulcan skin we did a few months back but just love the absolute detail on his armor and that face like that that alligator the way it sculpted the art team really went amazing above and beyond on this one and this is also one of my favorite gods this is a ajax skin patch this bonus patch super great let’s see what he sounds like let’s hear the voice line soon this entire planet will bow to me okay so he’s a bad guy yeah that’s fine yeah with how good he looks though it’s yeah we’ll forgive him for that until he throws me but uh so yeah so that’s actually the the last of this game so those are the skins coming with the uh 8.7 week 5 update that releases august 10th so keep your eye out for that are going to be a ton of cool content make sure you get in the corner uh the court of midnight and check out the uh spacecraft seder jess with uh the navigator so from there let’s get into some community news a lot of community news man i feel like i could do a whole update show on this first up we have

for providing them that free idea yeah so definitely i hope that you steal it wink wink um but yeah so make sure you uh check that out it’s available to you now i know uh i it’s been available to me forever i still don’t have one and i’m crying about it because uh yeah i need to get that next up this is really exciting we have the four fans by fans contest coming back that’s right with the launch of the odyssey we’re actually opening back up the fan art contest uh it actually comes up today and we’re taking submissions through september 6th so you know you have you haven’t got a bit of time but i wouldn’t sit on it for too long obviously you want to really get it in there and get your ideas flowing um and this is where you can submit for merch ideas right yeah that’s exactly right uh and that’ll go through four fans by fans and when you submit the community and titanforge team are actually going to vote on our favorites again through september 6th and uh the grand prize winner gets a cash prize the exclusive artist bundle in game and you get to create your own in-game avatar what’s better than that that sounds pretty good it’s a super sweet deal plus i love seeing all the art so make sure to keep throwing that at us i’m so excited submissions have been amazing the last times we’ve done this oh so amazing i i hit up the merge store like constantly so smite is a real hole in my wallet so the next thing we’re gonna talk about is just a call out to stranger things shout out that’s the battle pass is still going strong there’s still a lot of fun left with that uh you so hop into the game get in the upside down arena grind through some of those battle pass levels to unlock all the awesome skins i know i’ve been like meaning apollo now because of the uh hopper pi skin but uh yeah this is it’s going to continue through september 20th which seems far away until you realize we’re already in august and this year has gone really fast so make sure y’all are still checking out that content and uh really throwing it down in the upside down arena or up i guess i’m not sure good one awesome so uh a lot of good things and what’s next it’s continuing it just gets more exciting through the show uh we have the a calendar event coming the bacchanalia calendar event and that’s a big word that name sounds familiar it does sound a little familiar it sounds like um i’m probably just making this up but uh it’s roman themed this time boccanelli is a huge celebration based off of some god that i’m sure we’ve heard of uh and the way it works is you play one game each day and earn awesome awards what could be better than that you just play the game and you get cool stuff sounds like a good trade to me and that comes with a ton of community cosmetics uh and those are actually community submitted fan art uh people submit stuff to us they did awesome and uh that gave us a total of six things six community pieces of fan art we have two avatars one from bun rear on instagram uh that’s the susano one which susannah looks properly grumpy we have the awesome uh frostfire one from sly blue from pixiv looking super great uh i love the like the frost and the fire i guess that kind of sells itself huh two jump stamps one from observant bunny uh on instagram which is the arachne one and i mean look at arachne just bursting with love and jump stamp yeah i love the web heart too and uh we also have i’m gonna say this one wrong but uh chisel c from twitter submitted the jelly one and that’s from uh that’s from the discordia skin right oh yeah jelly buddy yeah looks inspired from there yeah it looks it’s super adorable the face makes me so i’m gonna get killed because i’m gonna stop and be like oh look at it uh and then finally we have two global emotes one from ichigimi on instagram the spellbound one with the good luck have fun and that’s just too adorable i can’t not be in love with that and from deacon xerathos on instagram we have the pixel collie which looks violent and full of pixely goodness so again you can earn those right there’s one more big reward right you know i think there is i think i remembered it’s called bachanalia because classic focus is back that’s what it is look at him back he’s back he’s blocked the chunker has returned so if you participate throughout the entire calendar event you can get classic bacchus for free and that’s i mean what could be better than that look at him he’s horribly intimidating actually uh so after the event if you didn’t happen to claim him you can still pick him up for classic uh classic skin pricing he will go on sale but you know you can also just participate through the entire event and have this all to yourself and again who wouldn’t want that look at him so yeah and that about covers it we did it we brought back classic bacchus we did you’ll have to let us know how excited you are about it yeah it’s have we peaked i hate to say we’ve peaked but that’s i mean it’s pretty high up there so with all of that community news out of the way it’s time to get into some nitty-gritty stuff let’s let’s talk balance we’re into balance now so uh it looks like the first looks like the first couple things are actually uh are these support item buffs or yeah buffs let’s let’s get into that ajax how about it so this balance is a pretty big one because of the extra weeks in this update because we’re not doing that extra round of bonus balance so there’s a lot of nerfs uh and buffs in this update and it’s a it’s a pretty big one because we’re we had a huge update with mid-season so a lot of changes a lot of data to be following a lot of player feedback the first one we’re going into is support items now this is reading as war flag buff but the actual um buff is being applied to warflag sentinels gift and benevolence all of those are being reduced in their upgrade price to make sure that those support players can get that upgrade as soon as they can when they level up at uh level 17. so it was it made sense right pawn like it was already a little earlier to upgrade a support item so we also wanted to make it a little bit cheaper to upgrade a support item because the you know the support player is doing their duty giving up their gold to their teammates yes and also we’ve been really carefully watching how the mid seasons really changed the pacing of the map and so that’s also something we want to keep an eye on to make sure that support players when they’re getting to the point where they can upgrade it they have the right amount of gold to be able to upgrade it with their teammates that’s why it was lowered to level 17 and that’s making this change they’re separate from all the other starter items somebody that loves playing the support role i am super excited about that uh because i can upgrade quicker so the next thing oh it looks like caron’s coin is getting a nerf to its magical power and uh its evolved form uh let’s talk about that yeah so the this is like the go-to mage staple right now provides power pen a lot of really good utility stats there’s also a bug fix on the base cairns coin to affect its hp5 as well so it’s getting a little too much hp5 so that’s kind of paired to the base version here um but yeah it was just too effective for what it was providing too cost efficient and so we’re just taking some of the power off to make sure that the other penetration the other 10 or 20 options can better compete with that and it doesn’t make it the go-to only option that measures can go for cool rock and roll uh next up looks like a frostbound hammer nerf that hurts my feelings a little bit uh ajax why are we doing that i mean frostbound hammer is a controversial item we’ll say and there are a few gods that use it really well right now um overall the this item where we’re pretty happy with the additional attack speed slow that we’ve added to it um that really brought the item back in a big way and gave it a new way to be effective and since it’s gotten that we are now going back and kind of tuning down the movement speed slow um also i love this balance note because it kind of reminds players that we actually have do have a different movement speed slow for melee versus ranged so if you’re considering trying to use or potentially abuse this item with a ranged character we’ve slightly de-incentivized you from that by giving you less stats but overall this item really strongly performing not something you’ve seen so much in the pro meta but one that could be really really a plague of the casual and ranked player bases so a nice little nerf here to make sure that this item is not overbearing sounds good next on the list we have jade emperor’s crown getting above looks like the uh physical power reduction let’s how about that one pawn yeah so you this will actually be kind of a string of other support buffs as well we’re looking at some tank items that we’re under performing you’ll see them throughout the patch but january’s crown is one of them it brings a unique uh power reduction aura for enemies which is really effective especially when you’re fighting like high attack speed low power builds um but it just wasn’t quite efficient enough to really fit into that slot so we’re just bumping up that ore reduction making it better at its job awesome well that’s really cool so how about the blackthorne hammer that’s getting a buff as well i hear another tank item uh this one you know generally goes to solos more than supports i would say that we’ve got a lot of buffs for both but this item we we had a brief period where it was very meta um after years of trying to talk people into buying it i’m surprised it took us so long but people did finally get it and then we we kind of swiftly nerfed it so we’re bringing this back just a little bit more power a little bit more health kind of somewhere in between where it was when it was when it was overly meta and before it was not very popular um this item i still think is extremely stat efficient although people sometimes struggle to find the right slot in their builds to use it so i think just with these new options it’s it really starts to be more appealing compared to some of its other competitors yeah i gotta find that niche spot that it fits and then really like fly with it that’s awesome uh so moving on finally or away from the tanks we have the staff of mirden uh and that increases its passive yes so the stafford muted rework came out eight seven uh to many hebo bumba’s hammer memes we nerfed it in pts uh and it was over nert mainly in the fact that we made it the window where you can utilize this uncapped cooldown reduction a very interesting stat we made it so that you only had four seconds to play with it rather than the previous seven and so we think that this item definitely deserves to have a bit more play with it definitely it has more room for experimentation if we extend that duration so we’re
