Hey all, let's get this ball rolling. If this thread gets busy I'll try to condense stuff in one post but for now lets just discuss. What team are you running, and why?
Right now my team is Painwheel (c.mp)/Parasoul (Pillar). Here's why:
-Painwheel loves an invincible AA assist. Especially when coupled with armor, her defense can be pretty tough.
-Pillar makes air-to-air confirming real easy. Catch with j.mp>call assist>fly over>otg>whatever.
-Pillar gives good blockstun to help set up safe strings with PW.
-Both PS supers DHC well in to Hatred Guard. Both force a block and allow you to rush in.
The only weakness I have right now is that PW is an awful assist character. I use c.mp to extend block-strings and mid-screen combos, but it doesn't do much besides that. Having a chargable normal for an alpha counter is cool, but time will tell to see if that's effective.
