MvC2 Teams


#1

I am trying to make this nice and sweet because of my last thread but I need help setting up a new team on MvC2. I am not a newbie but i am really rusty for resets and combos. I want an original unlike the one you usually see. I play for fun but I am entering a small tournament in Fresno and I need a lot of help. Also, if you want, can you guys tell me want player can past Sentinel’s offense? Thanks a lot!
P.S. I didn’t search for a similar thread…

Cant tell if srs but sounds like a noob to me<div><br></div><div>Who beats Sentinel? Cable. Catch him flying and just AHVB him for free. But if you didn’t already know this, then you’re in denial when you say you are not a newbie.</div>

I played this game for years. I know the game but it been still years since I played this game. If read my post carefully, I said I wanted an original team. I don’t know if I am really rusty since I have been playing street fighter lately but still. I might suck now since I only have a controller but I am not new to the game.

I think I know who I use against Sentinel. I use a unique for having fun but I guess I can use a top tier team. Thanks!


#6

Doesn’t Anakaris counter Sentinel?<br>


#7

Just pick Cable bro


#8

you can pick a “unique” low tier/mid tier team but ultimately I feel you’d be working harder, not smarter<div><br></div><div>cable is the classic counter to sentinel, zones off the screen too well, all while building sufficient meter, and it’s easy to catch sentinel with ahvb. if i could play cable at all i’d always pick him against a good sentinel player (with anti air of course)</div><div><br></div><div>a patient storm who knows how to position along with an anti air assist can give sentinel trouble, but a good sentinel will win this matchup more often than not (yeah i said it)</div><div><br></div><div>strider with doom assist is also another good choice (self explanatory)</div><div><br></div><div>hope this helps</div>

Alright man, I am practicing with him right now. All I need is an arcade stick and I am ready to go.

Helps a lot! Thanks a lot!

Cable shoot the robot + a good anti-air assist. It’s worked for years.

I knew that already, it’s just that I never bother using Cable in the past years. I guess I have to use him if I have a chance of winning. Thanks for the advice though. :smiley:


#14

Original team to be the robot? Cable / Guile / Blackheart would annoy the fuck out of him…<br><br>But IDK what you’re going to do against that Storm or Magneto backing him up.<br>


#15

If you want to purely shut down Sentinel’s offense, a character with strong full range zoning options + a strong anti-air assist is what you’ll want. Cable+Commando is obviously one of the best duos there is, but there’s a couple other options as well.<div><br></div><div>Cammy AAA works pretty well against Sent, just gotta be careful of him dropping an assist to block her. Guile AAA (and to a lesser extent Charlie) can really annoy Sentinel, but they’ll do next to no damage.</div><div><br></div><div>Blackheart can stop Sentinel from getting in too easily with j.lp and j.hp, but you’re not going to be doing much damage either.</div><div><br></div><div>There’s a couple other lower-tier characters that I can see dealing with Sentinel’s offense in a minor capacity (Colossus, Megaman), but they run into problems when Sentinel goes into up-back mode where Cable does not.</div><div><br></div><div>Another good way to stop Sentinel’s offense is to get right over his head and dodge his AAA calls to prevent him from ever starting his offense in the first place. You see this all too often in the Sentinel mirror, where once one Sentinel manages to be above the other, the Sentinel on the floor has a really tough time getting out.</div>

#17

Thanks a lot guys for the help! I came in second place, which is okay because I had fun. Thanks again!<div>The team I use was Tron, Cable, and B.B Hood. </div>


#18

Nope, it was quite big for a Fresno Tournament. There was over 100 people. I was just playing a good game with the team I used. I was playing a keep-away with B.B Hood and close combat with Tron and Cable.
