Hi guys, I was in the mood to start a PvP arena game so I looked around for a good one. I used to play Rakion a few years ago and in my opinion it really had the best concept for gameplay. I am really sad that Rakion is now run by hackers and players who abuse the cash system with over-powered item. Rakion is now literally pay to win. I found a new game that is releasing it's closed beta in a month or two called SMITE, looks amazing. It looks like Hi-Rez took the concept Rakion was playing with and truly made it shine to its full potential.

In the meantime I found a game called Bloodline Champions that seems pretty fun. I know that there are some that are probably going to think of League of Legends when they see games like SMITE and Bloodline Champions, but I think you should really give new games entering the MOBA genre a chance.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtxALCR5UzQ , http://www.bloodlinechampions.com/home.php The games here seem short so no need to commit an hour to a game like LoL, try it out if you're bored. There's probably a better community within Bloodline Champions and SMITE than LoL as well

I will see the rest of you guys when SMITE closed beta comes out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDDSpHSrLq , http://www.facebook.com/smitegame?sk=wall

BLC is just too much action. I can only play it for ~30 minutes until I want a "rest period".

The concept behind smite has been done before (poorly). I don't really care much for the concept. I'd probably give it a whirl if it's a free2play, but I wouldn't purchase it up front.

Rakion was fun way back when, though (:

Do you think Rakion has any chance of a revival >.<

Rakion was actually pretty darn awesome, for what it did. I really liked that game. I ought to try it out again to see what's different. I just remember the archer class being the most overpowered one.

How do you think Riot would handle Rakion if Softnyx sold it to them? xD

it would be a thousand times better, popular as hell, and far more lucrative than it EVER was for softnyx. the game in theory is a very good and fun idea. the problem is, these companies get greedy and start making more and more powerful items in the item shop, and the not so rich people are forced out due to the inability to compete. however riot is known for their ability to make a TRULY f2p game, with steady news and content updates.
