i basically realized that i want to take a different route in mvc2. i’m tired of playing the same old team scrubs, msp’s, row’s, santhrax’s, etc, and i want something different yet still effective. so i figured i’d give strider/doom a serious shot.
i’m wondering what’s the best way to learn S/D? i’m reading through the old threads learning strider and doom separately, then as a trapping duo. i’m unsure about my third character also. my sentinel is pretty shitty, so i’m apprehensive to play team clockwork although sentinel is probably the best third character. i kinda have a problem blocking rushdown, so i was thinking about cyclops on point to build meter and then become an AA assist. not a huge fan of capcom because i want a third character who isn’t screwed if he’s not an assist. maybe storm on point to run away and build some meter, dhc strider in, strider eventually dies, look for photons into hail storm, run away some more.
what type of things did you experienced players learn that you wish you knew when you started playing strider, or habits that you wish you never picked up?
just any advice for a beginning strider/doom player will be appreciated.
