Now, I’m making this post out of ignorance, I’d like to know some info about healing, here’s my take so far, I guess you guys can right what I have wrong.
Elena seems to be more of an EX character, her supers don’t do much damage compared to other supers (SA 1 and 2 obviously) and while it’s easy to combo into her supers it seems better to drop an EX attack. I’ve been trying out SA1 and 2, don’t really see enough of a differance to make a convincing argument for either but what I DON’T get is why healing would EVER be used, much less be used in every high-level match I’ve seen with elena.
Healing heals roughly half the average supers damage… has alot more meter than most supers, the supers with a meter that long would do 3x the damage healing heals. In addition to the low ammount healed, healing has only one meter, so you can’t ex and then use it. Also, from my experience, most characters WILL smack you out of it even if you knock them down. Maybe some of the slower characters can’t… but eh. The resulting combo would most likely take off more than was healed. I’m pretty sure if you just want EX’s SA1 or SA2 would have more available meter.
So… why do people use this in tournaments?
