MOBA Monday is a weekly showcase of how to perform, eh, let’s go with adequately – we hope – in a multiplayer online battle arena. The streaming squad features the hottest, upcoming or most interesting titles of their and the communities fancy for a few rounds of PvP shenanigans in our weekly Twitch channel staple.
Medusa is perhaps one of the best known antagonists in Greek mythology. The hair, the stunning gaze, the ability to die through intellectual murder. She had many angles that intrigued and continue to intrigue. It’s a bit of a wonder that the team of Hi-Rez Studios took so long to introduce her to the Battleground of the Gods. Sure, SMITE has a lopsided amount of Greek combatants, but Todd Harris has repeatedly stated that isn’t a detail that concerns the outfit (or the community) much. What does is the roles of said gladiators. And in that, Medusa stands out.
The most famous third of the Gorgon sisters was built to exemplify high burst damage in SMITE. Mercury didn’t cut the mustard apparently. I can sadly confirm that she’s quite good at dishing it out. Thankfully, if you can avoid or live through that burst then you could be perfectly fine. Which means that putting Medusa in my hands for tonight’s MOBA Monday could go hilariously poorly considering I’ve only been on the receiving end so far.
Either way, we’ll be giving out some god and recolor skin codes during the attempt.
Don’t forget that all Lore Hound Twitch shows have been moved to their new time at 7:00 PM EST. We may be adding a new show for the weekend warriors out there. Be on the lookout for upcoming details.
