I went into an online match today to get some practice and my first opponent’s team was Vergil, Doctor Doom, and Phoenix. No biggie. I’ve beat them before. Something odd happened this time that has never happened to me this bad. Not even against Zero. Fundamentally, I understand mixups using team assists. That I get. But this guy kept using the two mixups and even though I understood what he was doing, I couldn’t do anything to stop it. I get owned. More than once.
He uses Doom’s beam assist, teleports Vergil behind me when I block it and starts owning on me-- repeatedly.
If I jumped before the beam assist could hit me, when he teleported he’d position himself in this odd spot underneath me where I couldn’t block his standing medium, strong, and launch sequence.
Before any trolls get a hold of this and assume I’m complaining, I’m here because I got my butt kicked and I’m asking for advice. How do I defend against Vergil’s these two types of cross ups?
