A recent match above between Wong and PR Rog. Everything was going pretty well. Popped XF1 on a happy bday (which yipes didn’t approve of cuz dark vergil), but he killed 2 people and Vergil took the incoming mix up. Everything was going good till he dropped the last part of the combo.
Needless to say he lost, but should he have snapped in that situation and force XF1 Vergil in instead? Then fight lower health Wolvie and Doom after? Was it worth it to pop the XF and give up health regen, guard cancelling and being impervious to chip?
In the set of Fanatiq vs. CJ, you can see how Fanatiq makes it a priority to snap Vergil in on the majority of the matches. Its easy for people to just say LOLXF3 Vergil, but if you’re playing against an anchor Vergil you know why he’s there and why you should force him into an XF1 situation when possible.
Obviously this issue compounds when fighting a Morri/Doom/Vergil, but are we at the point yet where snapping Vergil should be more important than the death of the point character? Should forcing in XF1 or 2 Vergil via snap be the standard like it was vs. Vanilla Phoenix?
