If you see Graphic Design major Phoenix Lee Covington in Powell, chances are he’s playing the popular MOBA game, SMITE.
The point of SMITE is very similar to League of Legends-destroy objective before your opponents do-except there’s one major difference: In LoL, the game is at a top down perspective, so all you needed was the mouse to move. In SMITE, the game is at a 3rd person view, requiring more use of the keyboard.
“I’ve been playing SMITE for 4 years, ever since a friend referred me to it,” said Covington.
The game has a variety of characters, centered around 5 classes: Hunter, Assassin, Warrior, Mage, and Guardian.
“I usually play as the warrior character, Sun Wu-Kong,” said Covington.
“Something else about SMITE is that you might get teamed up with your friends, but it’s completely random who your teammates are,” said Covington.
