I have been playing Vergil with Doom w/ Plasma Beam assist since UMvC3 came out. I recently though of switching it to Hidden Missiles so I can play different teams, such as Dormammu Vergil Doom, Magneto Vergil Doom, or Morrigan Vergil Doom.
However, it reallt seems like Vergil is just not that good w/ Hidden Missiles assists. Feels like Vergil has a tough time converting hits from Hidden Missiles into a solid combo, Hidden Missiles messes up the combo more often than helping it, and Vergil has no up/down mix up, so he doesn’t get much from having the opponent block missiles.
I have found some tricks with it, like resetting in the corner w/ Rapid Slash, and timing the Doom assist call so that it will allow me to combo off of Rapid Slash w/o using meter, or continue the block stun if they block the Rapid Slash. Just feels like the opportunity doesn’t appear often enough, and Plasma Beam assist helps get in and control space so much better than Missiles when used with Vergil.
Wanted to post and ask if anyone has had success combo, and what tips they would have.
