Look i constantly see an Ares catch 5 ppl with his ult only to pull 1, alot of gods have moves that give them atlest a fraction of a second of CC immunity. And with the free beads it seems like the only reason to pick Ares is to force your opponents to get beads but atlest half of the gods in the current meta have some form of CC immunity.

Also, i havn't played 100 games of conquest, but I do consider that the main game is Conquest before I talk about buffing/nerfing a god, Ares doesn't bring enough to the table compared to Athena, Kepri, GEB, even Xing Tian.
