General/Other Ares: Trials of a God! (Community Effort)

PTG Slayer

Behold! The GOD of War!
Note: If you are incapable of performing basic Ares BnBs w/90% efficiency, or lack motivation to keep at something for long periods of time (Practice, studying, critical thinking) please disregard this thread.

This thread can be considered an outreach program, a sort of call to arms, for all Ares mains! If you are willing to put in work, help each other develop new and devastating tech for this character, and furthermore tapping into this reservoir of potential, please list your names below.

Add my Xbox Live account (No PSN atm) : PTG Slayer

Reason: I feel as tho not a lot of people are really grinding with this character in unison to truly utilize all of Ares tools effectively.

A second thread containing all discovered tech will be created once this program has picked up support from you all!

WE THRIVE OFF KONFLICT!
 
I would but once i read " ares BnB's w/ 90% efficiency" i realized i wouldn't have anything valuable to add. However i look forward to what you guys find. Can't wait.

Stay tuned. I'm pretty sure if what I'm seeing atm is correct, Ares is going to shock the community with his consistent dirt, and unpredictable play style.

I would but I'm getting bored of INJ, I play on PS3, and I drop Ares' BnBs 90% of the time.

and I think almost everything has been found...

i don think execution has anythign to do with tech. theres tech that can be found with things that aren't combos/setups like how to punish things which you would really only need the first button to know it works

True, but if your fundamentals with Ares are poor, how can you begin to tribute towards more advanced levels of play. Don't get me wrong, things can be discovered with poor execution, but I think at this point, those things are known already. High execution is proof of knowledge, and understanding of said character. And that's what we need.

don't be so negative

Doombawkz has no fundamentals at all but he's probably the most contributing Bane since month 1.

Lol, if he's contributing, he has at the very least, basic understanding. The standards I stated are put there to alleviate the pain of back tracking, and move forward faster than would be possible if people lacked the Ares basics.

But I digress, add me or leave your GT if you wish to partake in this venture.
 
Are Ares' BnB's really that hard?
When I started playing Ares, I spent about half-an-hour practicing the 1,1,2,d4,ji2,b2,1,MB God Smack (Close) BnB set-up before I could actually do it. Once I did, though, I was able to do it 95% of the time. And from there on out I figured out a few other ways to finish combos that gave me a MB God Smack reset opportunity. So yeah, I don't think Ares is too hard to learn when it comes to BnB's. All I really need to know now is match-up experience and how to deal with zoning better.

i dont think so really. you can be a player of another character and you can findtools that ares players use against you that work. i have poor execution overall but i feel that i know my way around my character pretty well. im going to be labbing up ares when i have the chance because i dont want to lose to him. i was planning on streaming all day tomorrow of me labbing characters but the steam version fucking sucks and i dont have xbl to update my console :(

Always back the underdog
Depending on the connection of the match and the lag, the percentage could be alot higher... I have no trouble landing b3 in decent matches, but will usually settle for f3 to get guaranteed damage.

How do you niggas land b3 after godsmack/background bounce online
Some background bounces give less advantage so it's a lot harder/impossible to land the b3 after. f3 doesn't work after background bounces either, so you have to find a different combo.

Online and on PS3 I always use f3 after Godsmack. The timing is just way to hard if there's lag or any framerate inconsistency

The laws of the universe mean nothing.
As far as background bounces in Themyscira and Gotham rooftop, you CANNOT land a B3 at all...so you're pretty much confined to do either F2,3 or B1,3 afterward.
