The map of the game in SMITE has a classical model: there are three main lines with jungle areas in between; here, you can see the structures. These objects are the main objectives in the game: Towers are used as defensive buildings, each tower can damage enemies; Phoenixes are protecting the Titans from destruction, and Titans, the final objectives. If your team destroys enemy Titan, then you're a winner. The game stops automatically after you defeated all of the enemy structures. Also, there are Fountains at the bases, where players can buy items and restores health or mana. If you enter the enemy fountain, you will start getting damage.

The Jungle is another type of area that you can see on the minimap. These areas are placed in between the lanes, so you can travel around the map using quick jungle way. In these places, you can find the mob camps. For clearing up these bases, you will get valuable resources and items.

Another type of AI-controlled mobs is Minions, also called Creeps. Each team has its minions that attack the enemy heroes and structures.
