I had over 35 matches with my brother last night, on DC. I used Necro exclusively, and I used ES (SA3) exclusively, but I used to use SA1 exclusively. My brother used almost everyone (except Elena, Yun and Q), but there were more matches with Urien, Alex and Yang (his better chars)
I’ve been using Necro for well over a 2 months now, and I have been practicing him almost exclusively. I’m not terrible with him, but I can say that I have a decent rushdown with him. However I am still poor with his link -> SA combos.
Here are my choice of vs char SA’s for Necro:
Shotos: SA3 exclusively
Chun: leaning towards SA3
Yang: probably SA1 (probably same with Yun as well)
Alex: depends on what Alex picks (SA1 vs stungun) but it’s strangely easy to stun Alex with Necro, so either. Leaning towards SA3
Hugo: leaning towards SA1
Dudley: leaning towards SA1
Urien: leaning towards SA1, but both work good. SA1 is primarily to discourage Urien from jumping in over and over with his jump RH.
Necro: leaning towards SA3
Elena: probably SA1
Q: probably SA3
Ibuki: leaning towards SA3
Makoto: leaning towards SA3, but SA1 would make her think twice about random pokes.
Remy: SA3 exclusively
12: leaning towards SA3, but SA1 would keep him grounded.
Gill: haha, Necro is screwed!
edit: my win ratio was about 40% with Necro. My win ratio is usually 48-55% against my brother. He’s a “win-at-all-costs-no-matter-what” style, and I play “rush that shit down” almost always.
