These three characters have become my team, because tehy are the top-tier characters that fit my style the most; Magneto doing major damage up close with his combos, Dr. Doom doing massive damage with keepaway (supers, molecular shield) and Cable because… well, I needed a solid third player. I decided on Cable because he had a good anti-air, an even better projectile, and was relatively fast. (I origianlly tried using Sentinel, but I never really got anywhere with him. Which is a pitty, because I quite liked using him, but the faster characters would always just run circles around him.)
I have two crippling difficulties, however.
The first is that I have 0 competition. None. I have one or two people in my town who are interested in fighting games, and they are all very, very bad at them. As such, I am forced to cut my teeth, such as it is, on the computer. Keep that in mind as I explain:
- I don’t feel like I’m doing anything particularly skilled, and I don’t konw where to look to get more skilled. The most complex rave I can do with Magneto is lp, lk, mp, – lp, lk, mp, mkXXADUXXlp, lk, mp, mkXXHGXXTEMPEST
Only I can’t get that off very reliably, so I usually just nix the airdash part of the combo and do the hyper grav after the first MK. And it’s teh only combo I do. And the overwhelming majority of the time I only perform it after I connect with a Hyper Grav from halfway across the screen.
With Doom it’s even worse; if the character is rushing in I use the Molecular shield over and over, and if the character is at a distance I wil fly, airdash into a corner and start raining down photon shots. With Cable it’s similar, I horribly abuse Cable’s standing HP and Viper Beams. I can, about half the time, chain 2 AHVBs off of each other.
I would appreciate assistance. Articles, strategies, combo lists, suggestions for team replacements, what have you, that I can learn to make me a better player. Right now I use Magneto’s alpha assist and Doom and Cable’s betas. Although, I rarely, if ever, use them; I’m stuck in teh ‘90s if you will, and can’t seem to train myself to throw assists out more than once or twice a round. I also almost never use delayed hyper combos, and never use team assists, mainly because I don’t think that the damage is worth it most of the time. (And in teh case of a team super, its’ because it’s simply a waste of meter what with Magneto using his Shockwave versus the other two using beam attacks.)
So, again. Any tips/pointers on anything would be extremely appreciated.
