Weird, I hardly encountered any Zeus Warriors since I brought it.

Must be that random quick play thingy messed up the encounter rate.

FACTOID: Ares is the most popular God allegiance thus far, but also has players with the lowest overall skill rating. Hades is the second most popular, and the highest skill rated players, evil incarnate FTW!

The thing is, there's no one set play style for each of the God's. Yeah the most obvious play style would be to play to their strengths but you don't necessarily have to do so.

Makes perfect sense to me considering Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades all have a specific loadout or two that can either spam or is just generally difficult to deal with. Ares has no such loadout unless you count Gladiator Hammer and any allegiance can use that to great effect, though Ares might be the most potent with it.

 

There are ringout-focused sets for Ares...bring a Hammer and Fist of Ares near ledges and achieve ringouts all day but that's a boring way to play so I'm not surprised I rarely see it anymore. At the very least, it's hard to argue that Ares is the most difficult allegiance to play. I think that "skill rating" thing proves it Smiley Tongue

 

Hear that? We suck Smiley Sad

How do they measure skill anyway?

I think the reason most beginners flock to Ares is because of the perceived power advantage. Aside from that he doesn't really have much going for him. Ares is easily killed by other Ares players because of low defence. Ares is easily killed by Zeus because he has not proper ER load outs. Finally playing against a tank Poseidon is not a walk in the park.

I'm playing it because it's the only alliance that I havent reached lv25...... But I gotta say that the god alliance weapons for Ares is not so interesting and is not so much fun to use like other god alliance weapons.

Yeah, I see it a lot.  Well, now all I see are Spear of Destiny setups, but that's another matter (I've yet to get a single shard btw).  Playing last night it was that exact Zeus combo (level 30) against me with my around 20 Hades and the "OP" Sword of Hades.  It was an epic duel of lameness. Heh. 

 

BUT, it was a great match and I actually had a lot of fun with it.  Two powerful setups fighting each other really keeps you sharp.
