Just do like some Noel Brown shit. Dorm, Doom, Sent. Most rushdown teams can handle a team that only has Doom Missles or Sent drones on it by just rushing down and blowing up the assist that stays out forever or snapping them in. Either that or taking advantage of the waiting period where they can’t be used to rush in and then if they are called again they are dead.
On a team that has double lame assists like Doom missles and Sent drones it can get pretty lame. There’s no waiting period after you use the assist for them to take a breather. Once he’s done using Sent drones to cover Dorm’s screen spam he can immediately call Doom hidden missiles which will probably be tough to reach at that point cuz he’s already still spamming the screen with a bunch of shit as it is by then. Then by the time Doom goes back into the assist waiting list, Sent is ready to blow it up with more drones. It’s like in SFIV if you could cover Juri’s fireball spam with Dhalsim’s HP fireball as an assist and then when Dhalsim dissapears you can immediately call Rose’s HP fireball on top of that.
Most people dont set up teams well to cover these long recovery assists but the way Noel’s team is set up is perfectly suited for such. Tron’s and Haggar’s assists aren’t bad for doing the same lame as shit but instead of being projectiles they’re just like near untouchable assists.
That’s generally the way you want to play “keepaway” in Mahvel. Get the most broke ass assists covering your shit with a character that can spam shit on the screen. Most people tend to pick assists for other purposes like OTGs, unblockables or block stun/anti advance guard traps which retty much all are usually used for offensive purposes. You can’t use Wesker’s OTG to protect your on point Sent spit or help keep people lined up in Dorm’s vertical beams. You can keep away ok with a team that has a point character backed up with hidden missles with another offensive assist. On the other hand Doom missiles assist backed up with like Wesker OTG shot assist is not going to be able to bring the lame factor that sent drones or another beam assist being able to be called as soon as Doom goes away. Without another assist being able to immediately cover you give rushdowners breathing room to run in and blow up Doom’s next come in and take off half his life then block the missles coming down. This becomes a real issue with Sent drones since Sent only has 900k now. One bad Sent call after the waiting period and bye bye Sent.
Beam assists like Doom’s beam or Magneto’s disruptah are also good for giving you a lot of lame coverage. Especially if you’re using like Doom and Mag at the same time.
