What is a Joust 1v1?

Joust 1v1's is one of the two available ranked game modes. You need to be at least level 30 in order to play. Once you have played 10 matches you will be placed in a rank depending on how many wins you get. For this reason I would not commit your self to Joust 1v1's until you have played a lot of games to avoid having to grind your way through bronze-silver and gold to get to the rank you desire say 'masters' (the top rank).

Who to ban/ who to play?

The best gods in Joust in S2 are either adc's or assassins...
Warriors and mages can be good if they get a good match up and played/built right
Stay away from guardians if you can unless your in bronze but any other league and you will find is difficult to win as you become weaker as the game goes on and your objective push is usually terrible.

SS(Broken, your normal pick/bans)-
Vulcan
Hebo
Mercury
Chronos
Bellona
Freya


S(Top of the food chain)-
Hel
Kali
Hercules (can be considered an "A" pick, but he's here because he beats almost all the assassins and you have to backdoor him)
Chang'e
Bakasura
Poseidon
Loki
Ah Puch

A(Good Picks)-
Osiris
Sun Wu Kong
Aphro
Anhur(Can be considered "B")
Serqet
Vamana
Isis

B(You won't get completely destroyed with these gods, although they are more personal picks that are still viable, than anything else.)
Chacc
Bastet(Shes here because her plus side is her backdoor, and if you fail at that, you can easily loose the game. Can be "A")
Nox(We don't really know where she stands seeing as shes so new, but she has a lot of potential)
Arachne
Anubis
Ah Muzen Cab
Ullr
Fenrir
Hunz Batz
Thor

C(Personal Picks, meaning there not recommended, but if your good with them, go ahead and try it out)
Ymir
Agni
Apollo
Cupid
Hades
Janus
Ne Zha
Odin(Insane counter to Hel, and maybe the other 2 healers)
Ra
Rama
Thanatos
Tyr
Xbalanque
Nemisis
Nu Wa

D(Not viable, shouldn't really be picked in higher ELO.)
Ares
Athena
Artemis(Can be considered a "C" pick but her lack of clear and her lack of a distance closer makes her a bad pick, she doesn't have AMCs attack speed which can heal him quickly with lifesteal, Artemis can only Crit.)
Bacchus(Can be considered the best 1v1er in top hands Kappa)
Geb
Guan Yu
Kukulkan(**** this name....)
Neith
Sobek
Scylla(Can be considered a "C" pick)
Sylvanus
Zeus
Zhong Kui(Would be considered a higher pick if Qin Sais weren't an item)


(Note some gods may be missing and I will add them at a later date)

How to play?

Make sure you ban the gods that counter you the most, for example if you are playing an adc for instance you will want to ban Bellona for her disarm and Kali for her stun and insane damage potential.

Once in the game make sure to pick up some items and then you have a choice.If you are weak early game then you will want to go to lane unless you picked up hog for fast jungle camp clear.

JUNGLE CAMPS ARE VERY IMPORTANT! If your a mage think about staying in lane and buying items that build items that can build stacks and for the late game.
