SMITE Tier List for Every Role [SMITE Best Gods 2019]

SMITE Tier List
Who are the strongest Gods in Smite?

With the release of the new god, Persephone, Goddess of the Underworld, things have changed in the realm of the gods. With the new balance tweaks and the addition of the new character, calls upon a brand new tier list.

If you want to know the strongest gods in the game, you must not scroll past this one. While we will be going in depth in examining the S tier and above, you can still see the potential of the rest of the gods in our SMITE God Tier List.

TIERS:

We will be examining the gods and dividing them in 9 categories. Namely; SS, S+, S, A+, A, B+, B, C and D tiers. We will be dividing gods to these tiers according to their general pros and cons and also their situational usage. We will also divide them according to their roles in the game, ADC, Support ; Hunter, Assassin etc. We will be explaining what the tiers mean so don't worry if you don't know about that. So; let's start our list then shall we?

ROLES:

There are 5 roles in every MOBA. These are Solo Laner, Jungler, Mid Laner, Attack damage Carry (ADC) and Support. Here's small explanation for all of them so that you can better understand the roles of each god and select one that determines your play style.

Solo laners are usually teams frontliners. The sturdier characters gets to play in this position and start the fights themselves. You are expected to hold the lane all by yourself.

Junglers are the hidden helpers of the team. They roam in the jungle area and farm by killing the various monster camps. They are expected to visit each lane in regular intervals to help them push and farm the lane. Without a good jungler player, team easily crumbles.

Mid laners are usually are the mage type characters. They are not expected to be as sturdy as solo laner characters but ther are the bruisers of the team. They usually damage the enemy with their abilities but with the changing of the META, even ADC characters can be seen in the mid lane.

Attack Damage Carriers are the cannons of the team. They form a team and push the lane with a support and they are expected to work well with together. They have to farm the lane and get stronger quickly and target the high value targets of the enemy team.

Supports are the shields of the ADCs. They are expected to protect the ADC in the early game but after their ADC farmed enough, they are expected to roam the other lanes as well. So they have to have a good grasp of their surroundings.

SS Tier:

These gods are almost useful in every situation. They have little to no shortcomings and even with a little bit of experience you can easily carry the game, as long as you don't do obvious mistakes.

Unfortunately, with the latest patch there are no SS tier gods currently but that can change any day so keep your eyes peeled!

S+ Tier:

D Tier:

Just… don't. Don't. These gods are not viable, at all. Their usefulness is almost depleted already. Only the players whose main gods are in this tier can make something useful out of them. Just don't do this to yourself.
