New Player, meta help.
IH, I''m new to SOADA. I'm a high-level SMITE player. Can somoeone please give me a quick run-down of the meta for SOADA and the top characters for each role? I usually play support, so if there are any gods similar to Sun Wukong or Sobek, I'd love if someone would point me in their direction.

I've never playe Smite so I don't know the gods you're referring to but supports are Vexie, Ermuk, Vallamere. They each have very different playstyles so I'd suggest checking them out in the wikia and in game. As far as the meta goes, it's not really anything set in stone as the game is still new and has a number of differences from others in the genre. Personally I feel like Grugg, Serewyn, Skalla, Torrace, Bataar, Lassidar are some of the current strongest heros. Ermuk is probably the most popular of the supports currently. There are quite a few different viable builds for most heros so people are stilll experimenting quite a bit. Hope to see you in game...

The game just came out in EA like what, week or two ago? There's no meta for the game yet, it's still too early.

This game doesn't use gods, they're called heroes here.

I don't think there really is a top character for a role, they're all pretty good if played right. It all depends on your personal preference and play style, you can own it up with any hero available.

The quests really mix up the meta. You can learn the meta meta of each quest, but since they come in a random order, the overall meta is unique every match.

Early game there is generally a laning phase, but this typically only lasts until the first quest. At this point lanes become rearranged to allow some or all Heroes to participate in the quest, and once the quest is complete, your team must adapt again.

It is a good idea to have a default lane to fall back to, but I find that strategies are devised on the go as reactionary or preactionary measures, so dynamic meta is necessary.

To learn the basics of the quests so you know what to expect, I recomend some custom games vs. golems. The golems will not offer a chellenge in the quests, which could be considered a good thing because it lets you figure out what the objectives are without resistance.

There is 4hero which I count as support Beroth,Vallamere,Vexie,Ermuk.
Beroth is close to blitzcrank from league of legends.
Vallamere is shield giving,stunning melee support with underpowered(yes i say it and I already wrote an article about it but nobody said anything :C) ultimate.
Vexie is a healing,shielding,buff/debuffing,aoe ult stunning one.
Ermuk who is a stuning,healing,buffing/debuffing one.

Beroth a support? He's a tank, with high sustain, stun and damage over time.

I agree that Vallamere's ultimate is underpowered though.

Yes he is a jungler/tank but can be support with his vine+stun+cripple meanwhile the carry hitting him combo.(Like Blitzcrank from LoL)

Ps:I want to make a list about some basic combo,laning tactics becuse picking 5carry not really funny gameplay.

Anyone can be a support.

Beroth can be an amazing support. I built him SP carry almost last time I played him, and his aoe thing did 180 damage and heroes melted. Though he wasn't that tank then :( though it was a bot match, so I didn't ruined anyones game
