Simple: Propose a way that Capcom could buff a character that you think wouldn’t be broken, but would still add significantly to a character’s game plan, and most likely increase their tier position by at least a full-letter grade.
My boy Captain America is actually pretty good in this game. People seem to have yet to settle on where he actually sits (it doesn’t help that fucking no one plays the dude), but I’d say it’s more or less agreed that his Backflip paired with a good assist (Captain America/Hawkeye-A, BFFs, OTP on deck) is a solid gameplan, plus, Shield Slash M is actually a really solid assist. Much of the functionality of the best projectile assists without the scaling and good stuff like that.
What do I want him to have?
Full combos off of throws without X-factor. This would essentially mean changing his throws to change the screen position of the opponent so that both hits of the Shield Slash L OTG would connect and lead into 5S.
Why would this be good?
Cap already does some seriously dumb damage off of his relaunch BNB, and it’s meter neutral to boot. It tops off at 730K when ending with 236L xx Hyper Charging Star. But what if you did something like threw out Hawkeye-A or Doom Missiles instead, which would juggle, but still cause the opponent to drop out? Your combo would end around 500Kish, and then by ending the combo with your opponent high enough in the air, you get a free jump to Option-Select H with Air throw. At this point. Cap throws away from the corner, resulting in a BNB which will almost definitely kill any character in the game.
Is it broken?
No. Anyone who knew the technology would be mashing the throw tech to snuff the reset.
Would it get dropped as a strategy as a result of what makes it not broken?
No. People would still read for it, and then Rogers has options from there. Like Backflipping into the corner and then doing combos that start with Air normals or Air Shield Slash M juggles (typically both), which would punish H mashing. Those BNBs wouldn’t be *as *powerful, but still quite good.
EDIT: Also, it would be great if you could second-jump cancel the recovery of Shield Slash L to go into Air-Blocking and make it safe. Or, really, if Air Shield Slash was safe period. I’m really tired of using Cap’s solo gameplan and getting punished by “HAHA! SEARCHLIGHT!”
