I had a M.O.D.O.K. epiphany last night, and I’m not sure it’s a good one. I posted a simple BnB (F + :h:, :qcb: + :h:, :qcb: + :h:, :qcb: +:atk::atk:). Recently I’ve been trying to get :db: + :h: in to play more to keep people honest about blocking. Something simple like :l:, , :db: + :h:, :qcb: + :h: for example.
So it occurs to me that in theory, I should be able to do :l:, , :db: + :h:, :qcb: + :h:, :qcb: + :h: and combo two anal cubes off each other, just like in the first combo above. The opponent is being juggled a little lower, but it still should be doable. It’s not. So the big thought process (and you can tell me if this was obvious to all of you from the begininng) leads me to realize that **M.O.D.O.K’s cube properties change depending on the state of your opponent. ** You can combo two cubes if the opponent is in a wallbounce state, but not in a knockdown juggle state like :db: + :h:.
Am I completely off base on this one? I’d like to test it more with some combos that combo cubes together or :l: cubes, which I know precious few of. Like :s:, , :h:, :qcb: + :l:, :qcb: + :l: does combo, but I don’t know of any other way of getting them into the air with a different setup to see if it still combos.
I really think that understanding what’s going on here is going to be the key fully realizing M.O.D.O.K.'S potential.
