I've noticed that as Captain America's popularity has increased in Ultimate, players have become more adept in dealing with him. Fairly decent players have learned to just block against him, therefore frame traps don't work. I now have to use his cartwheel/assist mix up to make myself safe lol (being negative on everything is annoying!). Plus, if the opponent is stuck in block stun, the auto-guarding may nullify the cross up attempt anyway.
I am beginning to adjust to this- I have become more patient, try not to fully commit and throw opponents more. However, I now have had to change the assists I use. Hidden missiles have become plasma beam. So now my hundred percent combos with Cap are out the window. I have to rely on resets now as well, which can become predictable too.
I am appreciative of his buffs in Ultimate, (although I prefer the Vanilla incarnation). But it also means having to use characters or assists I wouldn't normally select. Adapting is one thing, but having to completely change is kind of upsetting.
What are the Cap users general approach to people becoming more privy to our character?
