So I play a Tron/Hsien-ko/Taskmaster team for UMVC3, and when it comes to Tron, I think most players have a tendency to try and rush in with air H or air S since those are more or less her best options. But in my experience, this gets me in trouble more. If your opponent blocks everything, then it’s for naught, and they go for air throws.
Depending on the characters you’re facing, I think it makes more sense for Tron to take a more defensive approach, especially against other character who need to get in your face (Haggar, Wolverine, Hulk, etc.) When it comes to characters with strong zoning games (Hawkeye, Magneto, Doom, etc), it’s rather foolish to try and outzone them unless you have good assists to back her up. But in those cases, I’d think having good assist to help her get in would be best there.
So lately, I’ve been having more success when I incorporate Tron’s Beacon Bombs into her arsenal. After creating some distance, you can use Beacon Bomb along with any good projectile assist to play an interesting zoning game. If it’s effective, you’ll most likely frustrate your opponent into rushing in (maybe trying to super jump and attack from above), then you pop them with an anti-air beacon bomb. I’ve seen this work a lot against Haggar and Wolverine, and occasionally Sentinel.
Characters like Hulk and Cap aren’t quite as scary either. Hulk is scarier up close, so creating distance is key. If you manage to frustrate them enough into landing into Beacon Bomb, then it’s a free combo. As for Cap, most (if not all) are always trying to fish with Shield Slash. Because of this, I find it necessary to back up and fish a little with Beacon Bomb as well. Many times you might catch them in the air from fishing with Shield Slash, and free combo.
Just wanted to get some input on this. If you have projectile assists with Tron, throwing in a Beacon Bomb every now and then can catch opponents off guard. I’m not putting it up telling Tron players that you should do this, since everyone plays differently, but I thought I’d offer it up since I’ve been having more success in games when I use this and maybe it could help other players at least get some ideas for using Beacon Bomb in their gameplay.
