General/Other Character Sins: Everything wrong with Ares...

xInfra Deadx

The laws of the universe mean nothing.
Everything wrong with Ares in 35 points or less.

Spoilers! (duh)

  • DC Comics
  • He has a face!
  • Also, Netherrealm Studios.
  • Sabin letting the cat out of the bag accidentally revealing Ares…and for telling us that he’s a zoner and sold us a huge bill of goods as far as this character plays. (We still love you for what you do for our community through these dark times :p )
  • Ares getting overpowered by Superman while they’re both doing battle in the air. IN THE AIR. AS IN FLYING. SINCE WHEN CAN ARES FLY?
  • Even though he claims that he’s starving of power, he has enough of it to freeze an entire Atlantean army dead in their tracks. Not only that, he can teleport people as well with such limited power.
  • “Regime alignment”
  • Taking back a point for the Regime costume. That’s badass.
  • Raven not even noticing Ares talking to Diana
  • Point taken back for “Unhand me!” quote. Best quote ever.
  • Crappy dashes all around. 19 frame forward dash doesn’t quite cut it and his backdash feels like 50 frames.
  • Weapon projectiles disappearing when you get hit. I call bullshit. Somehow this thought slipped when Martian was being developed.
  • 3,3 string.
  • While J1 is a great air to air in it’s own right, it does no good when you don’t have a competent normal to capitalize on it.
  • At one time, Ares was completely unable to wake up effectively until they buffed the teleports to have more invincible frames.
  • FOUR SPECIALS. Including Invisibility which has NO POINT in a fucking fighting game! (other than building meter but still, Ares deserves better than a useless fucking move or a limited move set)
  • Zatanna
  • D4 ends up whiffing on certain characters POINT BLANK. (I’m looking at you Sinestro…)
  • Speaking of D4 whiffing, 2,2 and B1 (which both are key moves) end up being a fucking detriment in the corner when your main launcher whiffs ON EVERYBODY! Yes, the corners are bugged and it hurt Ares a lot.
  • 8 second cool down on your weapons. That’s craptastic enough when these disappear when you get HIT. I know I said this twice, but shit, that’s unacceptable.
  • The falling weapons…or should I say Falling Axe. COMPLETELY USELESS.
  • Breakin Wordz (self proclaimed, “Ares of the World” when Alucard exists) trying to deceive all of us that he’s a better character than we all think and completely disregards offline gameplay (essentially, the Ra Helios of the Ares community). He even signed up for UFGT 10 and NO SHOWS knowing for sure that he would get bodied worse than SonicBoomBrad at NEC (Sorry, I had to.) So in this case as an Ares representative I apologize for this monstrosity. That bastard…
  • Fucking Zatanna
  • At one point, Ares had a pseudo-infinite (even on v.1.03 technically) involving B23 (untechable at the time before v.1.03) into a God Smack (his unblockable) pending that you had meter to keep it going (since wakeups were bugged before v.1.04). Since both got nerfed in separate patches these no longer exist and never got compensation buffs to offset this.
  • Pig telling us how Ares was gonna be awesome before 1.06 :p
  • D1 cancel advantage being completely dogshit.
  • The two teleports have more recovery than the close ones. Da fuck?
  • Speaking of D1, how come it has less range on certain floaties, like Raven and Diana?
  • Why does Zatanna exist in this game???
  • Pre patch Superman. Do I need to go into detail?
  • 2,2 STILL WHIFFING AGAINST CERTAIN CHARACTERS EVEN AFTER IT WAS BUFFED. Speaking of which, NRS failed to mention on their patch 1.06 notes that 2,2 is +1 on block. That’s kinda important, you know.
  • Ares being crushed by a steel can. @Mr Aquaman
  • F23’s shitty upward hitbox.
  • Certain crossups and wakeup reversals working on ONE STAGE.
  • Stupid. Zatanna.
  • Unable to punish Scorpion’s EX Teleport as D1 does not have the range and standing 1 and D2 are too slow :(
  • Seriously…their last DLC is a character that completely outclasses Ares as far as teleports and 50-50’s. At least I have better footsies still…but shit, they could have buffed Ares instead of wasting a character slot on Zatanna who is not much better overall.
  • Also, Martian Manhunter.
Sin count: 33


Sentence: This war is over.

You can complain about your character all you like but if you like your character aesthetically and enjoy their play style regardless of whether they're complete ass or top tier you will keep playing them. Also seriously ares has some of the coolest moves in the game combined with his quotes 'unhand me' and his godlike voice. Maaaaan who gives a shit if he sucks, he's awesome as fuck

MMH is a 5-5 ares players need to learn how to use teleport in the matchup effectively and react and play patient.

Level up and quit complaining
Are you a (soap bar in my mouth)? Tell me when ares can teleport please, and tell me when mmh teleports dont track every teleport ares does and punish them during the 20 frames of recovery please. Or even the what is it 19 frames of start up. How does this make the MU even? Let's go into how he can interupt anything ares attempts in pressure for 40% into orb oki then tele if you feel tele is coming. Or how ares punish for tele is MBF3 which is if he ever has meter cause B3 WHIFFS. Or that ares only check for tele is backdashable then hes back to have every disadvantage in the fucking game. O_____O

lol of course scrubs like you don't know how to play Ares. It's 5-5, just react to Martian's teleport with MB close GodSmack, breh.

"You play weird" It's called being unorthodox ;)

If I'm not mistaken Ares teleport away as MMH teleports helps Ares avoiding getting hit. Still, he sits on a 20 frame recovery, so doing this is pointless. Plus I would need to read your mind to be able to accomplish this. One more thing, there is no "playing patient" in this MU.

Any amount of money if you can do this once. Against jupiter. Ill stream it, hows tommorow sound you have 1 game.
Jupiter, Venus, Mars whatever. I'll play all the planets you want, breh. Tell me when I need to to mop up some fools witth my Ares.

am i really that bad, the kid beat me 20-5.
tell me this vortex and ill tell you multiple ways out if it. Also how did he pressure you? Most of it was probably interuptable. If you got hit with multiple godsmacks then yes. It's on you. Guys I train with make it impossible and can interrupt holes and exploit him np.
