My biggest problem is utilising assists effectively which, given the characters I want to play is a pretty big deal. I’m guessing this is quite common for players used to 1v1 fighters.
Players either bring out assists constantly and get them mashed or just forget they even have an assist button (my problem). When I get flustered my use of assists just stop. This is quote a common problem I think, a lot of players seem to be having more success with characters that don’t heavily rely on support and can hold their own, effectively being played as a SF character (the Dante’s, Akuma’s, Wolverine etc.)
I don’t want to resort to this, if I wanted that I’d play SF.
I’m trying to train myself to press the assist button like it was any other attack button and at a time I feel like I have the advantage so to keep them relatively safe. So, instead of thinking I’m going to do a block string and then bring out my assist, I’d try and just think A, B, C, A1 Special. Or I’ll do a jump in attack and hit both C+A1. This is really helping but what REALLY screws with my brain is non-point characters swapping places in the 2nd and 3rd slot because of switching, hate having to try and keep track who’s currently on which assist button (getting the wrong DHC as well irritates also). If I’m character A, why can’t A1 ALWAYS be character B??
Anyway I digress. Any comments from other 1v1 players just getting into Marvel or maybe advice from those who are experienced.
