So last night I got 2nd in one of our local tournaments, lost to a C Viper, Doom Strider. I was playing Zero, Vergil Doom.
Every time I lost Zero to C Viper, I would automatically/was guaranteed to lose Vergil, as I have never been able to find a way to get out of the C. Viper+Strider unblockable set up on an incoming character.
Wanted to ask if anyone has found ways out of this was with an incoming Vergil.
Here are a few things I have tried, and why they don’t work:
Dimension Slash as soon you come in - you get hit my Strider most of the time still, and C Viper doesn’t get knocked down at all because she absorbs the hits.
Helm Breaker - C Viper absorbs it and will release it before you even touch the ground.
Helm Breaker X factor cancel into Dimension Slash - the helm breaker will sometimes hit Strider, but sometimes it doesn’t. And even if it does, C Viper can still cancel the unblockable into EX Seismo and that’s another 50/50 on whether or not it will hit Vergil.
Obviously, more options are available if he is Devil Triggered, which is something I may have to focus on in this specific match up. I usually don’t have my Zero on point with a Devil Triggered Vergil behind him.
