I do not want to look into tech too much too early, I always have the problem of doing too much labwork/discovering instead of actually playing/getting better in a new game.
Still, I plan to do some research into parry when I get off work, because I think it has the potential to be very strong. Specifically I want to test the validity of parrying during a combo in ffa when another player tries to sneak up behind you, therefore dropping it on one but picking up on the other person. If this can work, and additionally canceling into u/side.triangle, side.circle and to an extent j.down.square, then Dante might have validity as a kind of combo control character, who is incredibly hard for opponents to build meter from, and can start combos safely knowing he has several eject buttons.
His short, braindead combos still build strong AP and you can always do his super ones when the opportunity finally opens. Ideally, if parry is strong enough it can act as a deterrent, with others thinking “nanana fuk dat” and let you do big combos. Of course, projectiles still ruin the day but hey this is all slacking from work theory.
Thoughts on Level 3? It seems really strong and capable of getting lots of kills; I think it gets a bum rap because of the absurdly stupid level 3s like Sack and Sly.
