Recently after dealing with some frustrations in AE i began to think… might it be worth it to start taking off the mask with Vega?
one of vega’s biggest issues is his damage output and lack of options, no?
i began to wonder… maybe capcom views Vega as a risk taker in a fight (which… if we think about it… he kind is as a character lol) and wants his users to take more risks to receive the higher rewards with him.
also, as a character, when vega is fighting he often is a few steps ahead of his opponent, so maybe that’s part of what capcom is forcing out of vega users - where it’s conscious or not -_-
i’ve tried out removing the mask at times, and it’s often helped. of course this is only something to do when you either know what you’re dealing with, what to expect, and how to deal with it (i.e.- you knwo the match up very well) or when keeping the mask on will make no difference (i.e. - one more hit or chip damage on the next attack will still kill you).
the 10% damage increase on EVERY attack is definitely noticeable. i on’t even want to go own the road of talking about the huge differences it makes. of course, the damage you receive is equally devastating. but stun is not… and if i’m not mistaken, when a vega user gets worked, stun still plays it’s part lol, so with or without the mask, the outcome may have been the same, no?
think about this people… what are your thoughts?
