SO I’ve been trying to main spencer and I love him couple of things I’ve noticed about getting in. I use Doom as my assist and can’t decide between rocks and missles. A good trick to do with spencer, short hop call assist zip lines. If you zip line straight across u cross up for assist, however if u zip straight up you can cancle the zip early with an air attack (heavy) which hits as an overhead and is comboable afterwards. Makes for some strong mix-ups.
The best use of zip line i’ve seen by far is the use of ziping to the cieling cause its cancellable. There are also hitboxes on charcters that u can zip and punish if they get hit by it.
A side note or two, if you do the grapple to pull in you can combo afterwards by doing the armor piercer, but timing is tight. You can also combo off his forward heavy with armor piercer as well. I am also a fan of using c.l,m,h,assist,f.h,dash magic series and so on. This is more of a block string type set as it mixes in high and low effectively while being relatively safe.
I have yet to use spencers command grabs in matches, I never seem to get a chance, I think my best bet is after one of their chars die or something. Game is to fast for such a shortranged command grab.
Here is my problem you guys might help me with. So far i’ve done alright with my wolvie/spencer/doom team, but spencer seems to get raped by lockdown. What can i do against dante/deadpool/trish lock downs, with decent assist. Prolly alot others but those are main ones on line. His jabs seem way to slow to punsh anything. The one thing I haven’t tried is armor piercer, it should be super fast at close range, should this be my punisher to openings to fast for jab? I got some offline matches I will practice this kind of stuff with saturday but hoping to get some input.
