    When you end up with 2 or more of the opposite team NOT getting Beads, its almost like cheating. Im not sure Ive ever lost a Joust game with Ares when the other team didnt counter your ult with Beads. But on the other hand the last two games I have selected him all 3 members of the opposite team selected Beads. At that point I almost feel useless aside from as a soak. It makes the game way harder especially since I play on console so his (X) chain spell is considerably harder to land than it is when I used to play on PC with a mouse.

    So what do you do if the other team counters your ult? My strategy had been to load up with items that reduce CD. Try to burn the ult once and hope your in a situation where you can use it again before the beads cooldown. Doesnt work too well until late game.
    I usually wait & c if the enemy team tries to counter me with their relics, if they counter, i just go with the aegis relic. 90% of the time, the enemy team wont wait & c what relic u/i got 1st, they usually assume (lol); also dont forget about ritual blink(?): the combat blink u can buy for 750g

    Means Ares can kill targets quite easily with his 1 & 3 combo.

    Basically his 1 cripples and slows while doing DoT damage, up to 3 chains at 105 with 15% scaling at max rank, while his 3 also acts as a percentage health stripper as well as a DoT, like 3% of max hp at max rank. Throw in spear of magus or deso and say void stone, and you got a dead squishy

    Basically, kill them before sustaining too much damage on your end. Ares takes a long time to do his damage, but his built-in defense lets him soak up enough to counteract this.

    Take someone from 100% health to 0% health.

    I.e. Kill someone who's full life, alone.
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    I'm pretty sure every god can kill a squishy who was at full health alone...

    Yeah, but some just aren't reasonably good at it. Khepri and Sylvanus in particular belong to this category.

If you have a teammate with a root or stun, like Neith, watch for it and take advantage.
    Rely on console scrubs for teamwork? Rofl!

    Ares can do more then blink and ult but that is usually why people pick him. If that is the reason you like him you may want to learn another guardian since a lot of people get wise to that trick. And beads isn't the only way to avoid it.
