So, this is the first crossover game I’ve ever tried to get any good at. As such, Assists are a pretty alien concept to me. I was hoping I could ask a few questions here to get it sorted out, and it might help other people who are new to crossover games as well.
1. What are assists used for? I can guess that it’s to start/extend combos, supplement lockdown patterns, and provide cover if you’re trying to move in. But, are there other things that they’re used for? Are any of the three things I listed NOT a common use for Assists?
2. How are the different ones used? How is an anti-air assist used compared to a fireball assist? For that matter, how are anti-air Assists used in the first place? I can’t imagine that would be any faster than just doing an AA with your character that’s on point. Which types of strategies do the different types of Assist usually supplement?
I think this will cover it for now. I have a few more specific questions, but I think these two might cover the smaller questions, so I’ll ask later if necessary. Thanks for the help in advance!
