I like both Smite and LoL. but which do you like the most? what's your opinion AJSA Army? 

Matchmaking
I'd like to add, that you know exactly when you are going to get placed into a match.

Supports
There is more passive gold gain in Smite in general, and as you mentioned there is an item that give bonus gold for being in the area of a friendly last hit. But being a level 10 account you still dont have a full grasp of the current Smite meta-game to make an informed analysis of supports, yet.

Surrender
Ehh... depends on the game mode if you can win a 4v5 or not

Microtransactions
It is actually ALL GODS ever for that $30

Toxicity
The Smite community is friendlier overall, but you still get jerks like you do in every online game.
However, there is no all chat.

MISC.
I'd like to add, that Smite has more game modes that I do enjoy. Arena (Deathmatch) is a lot of fun and so is their Flavor of the Day match. Every day a new match-mode is made for only that day. (examples include everyone is lvl 20 with 100k gold, everyone is a single champion)
Also Smite has a "mastery" system of a god that you play. The more games you play you earn "worshipers" which is basicly exp for Gods. When you get 1 mastery level in a god you can buy their gold skin. When you own a gold skin your stats on that champion are displayed in the loading screen (Kills/Towers/wins I think) and when you fully master a god you get the legendary skin for free (if you have the gold skin)

I like Smite more, because of the third person view, good community and they use Unreal Engine (that's right!). The biggest reason I don't play LoL is the community, it's toxic!

Prefer lol just because of the game mechanics, how the items work etc. When it comes to community i'd say that the game doesn't make the community or cater to it, but i do agree with you when it comes to more of a toxic community in lol. I play smite every now and then but im just enjoying myself way more in lol.

I like both games but I personally like smite more not just because of the gameplay, but also because the game made me like mobas. Without smite I still would've think mobas were stupid.

I like Smite better, I think it requires more skill than LoL if you play ranged etc.

And with the Third Person perspective you can have a strategic team fight unlike in LoL everyone basically spamming skills and no one have an idea where he is.... idk maybe I'm wrong about LoL because I didn't played that much with high levels but that's my opinion... Smite made me like mobas just like jrfromny above me said. :)

The only thing I find bad in smite is the lack of gods (for now) and some of them are broken / OP in the first week after their release. After all smite is still in Beta.

Smite is really great and I spend a lot of time playing the game. The community is nice, for the most part, the game is visually pleasing, and the mechanics in the game truly test you're ability to land those skill shots. League is still a good game too, though after playing the game since it's launch in season one, it got really repetitive and the community just grew rude and vicious so I stopped playing for a while. I still play league every now and then with a few hardcore, die hard fan friends, at least three or four times a week, but again without a few good friends to play with, you get piled on by a vicious community who just tells you to uninstall and leave "their" game.

1. arena isnt a death match thinking that way makes you lose

2. i like smite better it just makes me feel more into the game being in third person and the fact that you already sort of respect the characters you play as because you don't always have to read into their back-story you could just go okay im zues god king of awesome fear me

3. lol just sort of bores me especially if you tried watching a tournament of each i find smite to be more enjoyable

I definitely prefer smite because 

1. The gameplay - 3rd person pov is way more interesting than point and click and not being able to see 360 around yourself makes it more exciting.

2. Team comp variety - The gods in smite are less rigid when it comes to roles and lane position.

3. Much cheaper - $30 for everyone is better than paying for individual characters.

4. No runes/masteries - Those only give the illusion of customization since everyone always end up using the optimal setup.

I have played both smite and LoL for a good while and been in smite since its early closed beta and smite has really grown into a good game overall where as Leauge for the most part has seem to devolved into a simple repetitive system with only one way to do things and no other way otherwise you will lose and once your with in range of an ability for certain ones its an auto hit no chance of dodging which takes no skill what so ever. While in Smite everything is a skill shot and just because your with in range of something doesn't mean your going to be auto hit as you have a chance to dodge it and its far more skill based that im with in range based. So ya I have found smite to be far more enjoyable over all.

for me lol
playing it since beta, i dont like the smite 3rd person view and the tower diving on lvl 1 ( Dunno if they fixed this, but i played it and herc and some other bruiser kept diving me from lvl 2 and basicly ruined the game for me )

I don't think it's really fair to compare the two against on another. They are wildly different; League of Legends is a slighty more casual DotA-based game, and Smite has a sort of Action-RPG influence in it that makes both games different enough that they can't/shouldn't be compared (in my opinion).
