I was just wondering this myself since lately I’ve been beating one of my friends (Who is widely considered to be the best in our group) alot more consistently ever since I picked up Zero a couple months ago. Every single time I beat him using Zero, he goes off on a tangent calling me a scrub and a fraud and a “player so bad it would make OMGItzAndre look good” and claims how much better he is at the game than I am calling me garbage for using Zero, the “scrubbiest” character in the game, while he keeps bragging about how Vergil and Wesker take alot more skill to use than Zero. (InB4Potcallingthekettleblackjoke)
But to be honest, it really has been bugging me lately. Ever since I picked up Zero, how else have I been able to be beating our best player more consistently yet I still got bodied by other people at UFGT? It could be the salt coming from my friend talking, but at the same time, I can kinda see why he’d be upset about Zero being an easy to use character, but I can already tell from experience that, while he isn’t the most execution heavy character out there, there is still quite a big barrier of execution and entry separating Zero from the average low execution player, whereas characters like Wesker, Wolverine, etc. who take less execution can be used by the player but the very fact that Zero has low health and needs to hold down at least one button at all times scares the average joe away from using him more often. So I just wanted to know what you guys think of the matter. Is Zero as big a scrubby easy mode character as my friend makes him out to be or is there more to it than that?
