depends on execution IMO…
if your execution is above average, then i would definitely suggest cyclops. from what i can see, there are pros and cons to both, and both are really good. it’s quite possible that they are the two best teams in the game.
with cyclops, you get a stronger storm than sentinel, and visa versa with commando. storm clops has much more time to feed the assist for a free air combo. storm / clops and storm / sent is almost nearly impossible to rush safely without having a superb defense. you CAN get good 60% combos with sent / clops, but they’re not NEARLY as easy as sent / commando to get a 55% combo. eg.
sent / clops, launch, sj, lk, fly + call, lk, hp, lp rp, dp rp
sent / commando, launch, sj, lk, fly, lk + call, hp, dp rp = easier, and they both overall do an equal share of damage. commando gives you more options IMO AFTER the hit. with the clops combo, they get far away from you, whereas with the commando one, you can hit an lk and continue the combo. depending on your level of execution you can easily outdo the clops combos.
as for anti whoever…
storm gets hurt more by clops. it ranges further and she doesn’t have as much air control when there’s a clops optic shot flying around. it limits her slightly more than commando who can easily be baited out without having to risk your own assist and easy typhoon hailstorm. since clops goes up a bit higher, it’s a tiny bit more risky, but to be honest, it’s really negligable. the only assist storm really ever worries about, IMO, is blackheart.
sentinel mirror match, personally, i find commando more useful. clops is scarier because of the lack of space while flying, BUT in the case of a mirror match… it’s debatable. i find commando more useful. storm / clops vs sentinel SHOULD be scarier vs. sentinel than storm / commando.
magneto can’t rush with either assist, but since clops is invincible, and you get hit up slowly, you can recieve more damage. even a 100%. with commando, you risk a hailstorm. not instant death, so personally vs. magneto, i feel clops is deadlier
cable… this is debatable here. i find the best tool versus cable is well placed projectile type assists, such as drones, vertical typhoons, infernos. doom, i feel is too slow and gets ahvb’d for free if you’re not careful or don’t have a good character (spiral / strider). overall i’d say clops is better vs close in, missed ahvb’s, so i’ll have to go with him, but not by much at all.
