I posted this in the MVC3 forum originally. I looked through MVC3 specific subforums, and its all character specific, and since my problem is more an issue with a whole class of characters, I didn’t think putting it into one of those subforums fit. Also, this “Newbie” forum looks like it is for fighting games in general, so I thought MVC3 general was the place to put it. My bad.
I’ve always had trouble fighting zoning characters in games. I’m a newb.
In this game, the character giving me the most trouble is Dormammu. I play X-23, Chun-Li, and Trish currently, all low vitality characters. The one I can do the best with is Chun-Li, because she has an airdash, and once I get on him it is fairly easy to stay on him. With X-23, I am getting zoned out completely and having trouble touching Dormammu. With Trish, his black hole stops my spinning blade and lightning barrages, and I’m not sure what else I can do, since he is too far away for my traps.
Also, it doesn’t help the friend I play against who uses Dormammu most knows how to turn most of his hits into a combo for 350k-100% damage, depending on the state of his hyper gauge and what he lands to start the combo
So, any tips for my composition versus zoners, primarily Dormammu? And any tips for playing Trish especially, since I am having a lot of trouble learning her.
