"SMITE" is seeing a server down status earlier this night after its fresh update to its latest season, Season 8, that features all-new maps and content for the popular MOBA game from Hi-Rez Studios. The reported problems connecting with the game are mostly about server issues and connections, while several users have also mentioned that logging-in is a problem.
The popular free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), "SMITE," should have been hosting games for players especially after its awaited Season 8 update, but is now looking a downtime with its servers and log-in. Connection problems are occurring for players and have been reporting it to several other websites, including to the developers of the game.
Its developer, Hi-Rez Studios, has recently issued the update earlier today, and have been facing several complaints regarding connection and status. These problems are normal for a game after its massive update that brings several elements and new content, which is somehow difficult for the servers to connect and deliver to its users.

According to Down Detector. com, users have raised another issue of a server disconnection and problems earlier today, at around 2:00 PM PST, having players report it to the website with almost 400 users to join. Two problems were raised in the website, with one mentioning a server connection problem and the other is a log-in issue.

Moreover, the server down detection website has noted that "SMITE" also had several down reports last January 25, but that was already resolved. This time maybe during the preparation for the game's update, in which the developers need to shut the servers down, but after the update finished and have revived it, "SMITE" faced another server down earlier today.
"SMITE's" Twitter account (@SMITEGame) has already acknowledged that it is indeed having several issues after the Season 8 Update, saying that log-in problems are taken note of earlier today at 9:00 AM PST. The company said that PlayStation players are getting "DC" or disconnections, along with other issues that were reported and taken note of by its developers.
