There are many different Gameplay Elements in SMITE. This is a list with several ones worth mentioning.

There are three types of damage: Physical, Magical, and True damage. Gods are classified as being either magical or physical, with their abilities and basic attacks scaling out of that power.
A god's magical and physical protection values will reduce the amount of damage the corresponding types of damage apply.
A target's protection values can be reduced by penetration and reduction items.

Statistics are the values that indicate the strength, resistance, mobility, utility, etc. of all playable gods. These statistics are grouped up in 3 main categories: Offensive, Defensive and Utility. Offensive stats are those that are related to the damage output of a god, while Defensive stats are those related to the mitigation of the damage they take. Utility stats are those that provide benefits that are not necessarily linked to offense or defense.

Crowd control (also called CC) is a term used to refer to abilities that influence or prevent the abilities or actions of other character(s).
