Trish can almost single handedly run away from the opponent for a finite about of time, given she has a life lead. If Trish had anything close to the chip of a character like Dormammu or Taskmaster she would be disgusting. None the less, post up anything that may be underused, or not very advertised on Trish’s behalf that are really good things to know if you play Trish.
-Laying a trap ANYWHERE on the screen vs Wesker stops ALL random MaximumWesker attempts.
-Trish can slide (cr.M) underneath Arthurs daggers and Sentinel low spit, to negate zoning.
-Trish can slide under Tatsu.
-Trish has one of the best wavedashes in the game.
-Laying a second hopscotch in the same spot makes it impossible to get in between the space of Trish and the original trap.* ie: your opponent standing underneath trying to get to you. *Throwing a second trap creates an impossible space to get through.
-instant air peekaboo puts the trap directly in front of Trish while keeping her still floored making horizontal offense more difficult. Standing peekaboo stops 45 degree assault as opposed to the space directly in front of Trish. Good for specific matchups.
-hopscotch >>> Doom dive priority
-Bait your opponent into pushblocking and attempting to punish a whiffed S by canceling an LMH string into a trap or fireball. Only LMHS on hit, her S is very unsafe.
-When your opponent begins to anticipate your rhythm of jumping into the air and laying traps start canceling into flight. Not only do you gain two-three more specials while airborne but you can also change the location in which you land on the ground, putting a hole in your opponents preemptive attack.
You can be an unbearable annoyance to 90% of the cast who has no air-to-air answer to her boomerang, fireball and traps. pair that with an assist suited for keepaway/anti air and Trish becomes a large problem:
-Morrigan Shadow Blade
A very lame and effective way to play Trish is to constantly jump and lay a hopscotch, then hide behind it.
There a lot of random things about Trish that are escaping me, a lot of this stuff has just become second nature to me so its hard to literally think about. Add to.
