Teams that are "looking" strong thus far..(strictly theory fighting)


#1

Now that the roster is a decent size I think it’s okay to theory fight.

What team combinations are looking strong so far, based on the little information we have so far? For me,

Trish/Doom - chip like hell and zone them to oblivion
Trish/Skrull
Chun/Doom

Morrigan/Tron perhaps?
Dorm/Dante/Doom?


#2

I think Dormammu would fit in perfectly with Trish/Doom.


#3

I wonder if Team Z will ever exist again in another form, seeing as Juggernaut probably won’t return.


#4

Is it me or is Dormammu’s range a little short?

Startup on his projectiles is a little slow, he’d need to spam Doom’s assist hypothetically speaking right?


#5

It seems like health-regen is going to play a larger factor in this one, do you guys think there will be teams where the priority is having everyone good on point?


#6

Probably not, but Skrull/Chun/Dante seems like it could be an excellent 3-point team.

I still think in the end you need that godlike assist.


#7

Everyone is hoping that Dante will be a good character. Let’s see how well they actually made him.

But it would be really hard to guess what teams would be “looking” strong right now.


#8

How hard is it to make educated assumptions?


#9

I think the projectile speed is slow because he can fly, teleport, and 8way dash.


#10

Team BrushW0rk!


#11

Team TAX a noob

Picking top tier characters? I’m gonna have 2 TAX you for that.

Mirroring my team? TAXed!

#12

Viewtiful Joe and Amaterasu are already looking like a good pair.


#13

Frm what we have seen, and also from what we know; keep away still seems mighty powerful. Rushdown characters will have low health (and rightfully so) and will also have a hard time getting in due to the way the hyper meter is currently built.

I would say the best team would be one based solely on keep away and zone(or trapping you at long range.) The team would probably only have a character of hybrid trait to be able to rushdown if needed during a given match.

Deadpool looks like he would be in most teams, mostly as point. and would get support from characters who can fill the screen with crap or have a good anti-air. Iron man, Okami are also good candidates to be in a strong team due to versatility; Trish and Dormmm and perhaps Doom are honorable mentions for supports and/or DHCs

Chun-li/Felicia/Thor/Morrigan/Hulk won’t be in any strong teams or could be easily subbed for someone that can do what they do but with other more usefull abilities as bonus.


#14

Dormammu/Doom/Tron-Team Lays


#15

Amaterasu. Get it right. =/


#16

Iron Man/Dorm/Ryu: Team "Fill the screen with shit"
wolverine/IM/Dante: Rushdown
BRUSHW0RK
redfield/deadpool/doom: keepaway

ill post more when im more motivated


#17

Doom Rocks looks to be a good assist still, and Hulk Rocks looked to be decent for characters that have 4-Way Mixups for that ambiguous nature.

Trish/Doom will probably be the de facto trap team nucleus, although if Dorammu gets a good enough set of assists, DorDoom can probably be the next BH/Doom.

If Dante’s Powerslide is fast, he’ll end up as CapCom AAA. If DP’s Shoryu has invincibility frames, he’ll end up as designated assist too, because it seems to be pretty fast.

Ammy/SixMachine Joe/Mighty Tornado Thor could be Team One Hit THC.

Trish’s Trap Assist will be a godsend for Thor/Skrull/Tronne/other grapplers.

X looks to move fast enough that any Projectile assist will give her some Sonic Boom shenanigans. Really, Sniktbub/Felicia/X/Chun are kind of interchangeable at this point, so if you back them up with, say, Morrigan or Ammy and a good AAA you have your rushdown team. Put Morrigan on point/use Chun/X’s dash tricks and you’ve got bootleg MSP.

If Hulk stops sucking, Hulk/Tron/Doom could be Team Z 2010. If he keeps sucking, Thor might work in Juggz’s slot.


#18

Deadpool/Doom/Tron > DDT

Joe/Dormmy > Team VD

Ammy/Ironman/Doom > Team AIDS

Trish/Ironman/Tron > Team TITS


#19

1.) Any character that can change sides quickly on you (Captain America cartwheel, Felicia Cat Crawl, Wolverine Teleport Dash Thing, Viewtiful Joe and X-23’s horizontal divekicks) paired with…

2.) An assist that hits multiple times for a good duration (Chris Projectile, Amaterasu Projectile)

Should yield some really cheap crossup shenanigans.


#20

Lol why did you quote me? I was talking about chip damage.
