Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.
Every opponent in ranked today have either ragequit, won the second game and then left before dodging me several times in a row, or let go of their controller after losing a character.
I suddenly remember why I rarely play ranked.
Got a job offer for a job I actually want, after two years as unemployed and 200 job applications. Consultant in analysis for the educational department in Oslo.
Life's pretty good right now.
I think I'll assemble a team now.
How does Frieza/Piccolo/Vegeta sound?
Frieza seems to have good zoning to build meter for Piccolo and Vegeta is... well he has an assist and an uppercut.
If you're playing Frieza point, I'd highly suggest putting a character that lets him do his death saucer combos on the team, as that's a massive damage upgrade for him midscreen. That'd mean Goku, Black, Tien and Trunks.
I'm currently playing Frieza / SSJ Vegeta / Goku Black, after messing around with several different team configurations. This will probably be my main team for a long time.
The basis for the team was that I wanted a strong shell for Frieza, who's by far my favorite character in this game. I never liked him as anchor due to his low damage outside of golden form, and wanted assists that would complement his gameplan for space control and mitigate his damage problem. The most obvious one was Goku / Black, as his assist helps with screen control and helps Friezas combos extremely well, raising his meterless midscreen damage from 2M from ~3.8k to ~4.7k and providing more corner carry. I started out with regular Goku, but in the end I ended up with Black as he's just a better overall character as of now. Vegeta was added last; when the game dropped I initially didn't like him and I was hesistant to put him on the team, but he's grown on me recently and is definitely what my team lacked. His assist is great for space control, lockdown and corner combo extensions, and he works very well with Black behind him thanks to 236M into assist shenanigans.
The team has excellent space control, and tends to get the first hit by countering approach options rather than attacking itself. All characters are solid on offense as well; not quite 16, 18, A.Gohan or Cell level, but they do get the job done. The team is also quite resilient to having one of the characters dying; Frieza / Black, Vegeta / Black and Frieza / Vegeta are also quite powerful shells that can still challenge a 3 character team. Black is an excellent anchor, Frieza is an amazing anchor if can enter Golden (though not so much otherwise; this is part of why I don't like him as anchor), and Vegeta works in a pinch even though he's probably the worst out of the three.
