Zeus is often seen as two things. A 'free ap Zeus' punching bag, and a beast that comes along and earns around 150 ap for catching everybody in a FFA with one move while they are distracted, so going for him first is usually a good tactic to those that haven't learned to dodge his lvl 3 yet, which is most randoms online.
If only people knew that a well timed short hop air dodge get's you through both the air and ground lightning options, and staying in the middle while you do it lets you move away from the side fist attacks. Sounds simple enough to grasp, right?
