With their own attacks, traits and abilities a strategic team configuration and macro map strategy are central to victory. These heroes in Smite are called Gods with inspiration drawn from the mythos of many ancient cultures and categorised based on their assassin, guardian, hunter, mage or warrior playstyle.
