I really don't understand why as gamers we cannot just get along. Not everyone likes the same damn thing.

In contrast, SMITE is more about free-form movement, reacting to dumb-fire projectiles and attacks (instead of character-locking auto attacks and abilities), using mobs as shields, and being able to view the entire battlefield without needing to shift your view away from your character's immediate surroundings.
Again, the similarities between the two game types of MOBA and the two types of MMOs is striking - like I've said before, Dota is basically WoW, whereas Smite is Darkfall. Some people like tab targeting, but me personally - I'll always prefer non-tab target combat ; just like I always prefer Smite's control setup to Dota's.
And it's not even that Dota isn't fun for me - it's just less fun, especially now that I've played Smite.
I used 100 apm as a relatively low figure that I thought most people here were capable of meeting. I didn't expect that a low figure like 100 apm would be seen as some herculean feet beyond the ability of Darkfall players - especially the ones talking about "competitive gameplay" - but I guess I was mistaken.
