I'm not very sure on specifics, but Green Arrow actually isn't a very long ranged fighter. Probably about mid-ranged and maybe a little footsie dependent (even though footsies in this game are awful because of the walk speeds), but his trait doesn't do nearly enough damage without a buff to zone people out. His only real long ranged attack is his explosive arrow that explodes OVER the opponents head which is honestly a better combo-ender than a zoning tool and he has Sub-Zero's slide as a strong gap closer.

Granted I don't play him a lot so don't take my word for it, but his trait is better saved for freeze resets in his combos I think. You're probably doing it right by not playing him as a zoner.

That's a pretty good deal.

Console wise, what's it looking like here on the forums?

I'm kinda annoyed my best character is Deathstroke at the moment. As is Joker. They've pretty versatile in comparison to the others. I haven't utilized their specials since they're not really all that. At least they're not COMPLETELY useless like Cyborg's.

Suffice to say, Cyborg's speed and strong hits surprise me. I've yet to mess around with all the characters, but I think I'll probably be practicing with Deathstroke and Joker after I try the characters I want to be good at, IE: Aquaman, Flash, and Black Adam.

Really disappointed at how discouraging Green Arrow is in range.

I'd say still just put time into the dude you want to and see if you can't develop a feel for them.

I should guess that Nightwing looks to be "Metaknight" of the game

And yah, still playing around to see what character clicks. I really am enjoying Joker the most though. They had a lot of fun with his move set and it shows.

Apparently Barbara Gordon AKA Batgirl coming after Lobo

That's what we need, another Batman character. :I

Rumored final characters are Zod and Scorpion. What a wasted opportunity.

Shazam plays fucking fantastic. I need to get better at combos but I've been on streaks with him.

Yours and everyone elses. Low Shots and Machine Gun overheads all day. HIGH LEVEL PLAY EVERYBODY.

Also I don't run into many Nightwings and everyone I see on streams play Lantern, Bats, Supes, Aquaman, Grundy, etc. I'm not quite sure if he's anywhere close to "Metaknight"-like at all. Unless you mean just a way that he plays in general, though I still don't see how that works either.

I've been playing Shazam myself. He's kind of middle of the road but he's very satisfying to play. Black Adam is also awesome though I'm really bad with Dial-A-Combo so my shit doesn't always come out correctly.

I fought the most annoying Superman. Camped at the edge of the map spamming fucking lasers at me until I got close for him to do his super.

Deathstroke is a pretty good choice for dicks like that. I can close the gap easier.

I have seen some AMAZING Aquamans and Hawkgirls.

Well at least it sounds like you pretend to play Deathstroke like a real character. You could literally just be everyone else and just High/Low Shots him faster than he can laser forcing him to have to close the gap unsuccessfully taking tons of chip damage and do a combo with pizza cutter sending him half to full screen away to do it again. That's what's being abused right now to all hell and back.

I'm not saying he is broken and needs a nerf to any extent because months from now we'll be looking back on this phase and wondering what the hell everyone was crying about once his zoning has been learned to be dealt with. But right now that's ALL that casual matches are. 80% or more of my online experience has been Deathstroke spammers and it's super old and tired already.

This is kind of my favorite video on the subject. Granted both of them aren't "spectacular" but just the overall result of the match-up is great and that look of frustration when he forces himself to mirror.



Both ended up beaten by a Lantern regardless. Here was the LF. KSparks obviously didn't play Deathstroke so it wasn't this retarded in GF.

If I had this I'd probably play Deathstroke, but that's because he's pretty much my favorite dc character. Sad to hear he's "that guy" in this game. That kind of thing usually sticks, even though it usually should not.

That's pretty much how I felt. It'll phase out though and then nobody will ever play him because he has nothing else going for him, which is a shame.

Okay I just went through so many losses I need to get better at this game

Losing to a Solomon Grundy that isn't even blocking and just grabbing me over and over is just awful

Or maybe I should just play with forumites

Never settle for just playing people below your skill level. Analyze your habits, look at what works against you, what doesn't work for you, and learn when you lose.

And yknow. understand basics yadda yadda optimize damage blah blah

You won't do any of this anyway!

YOU DON'T KNOW ME

And no, I've come to understand certain tactics. I tend to try to close in and not block at appropriate times. And I give my opponent too much of a gap and that's bad if its somebody like Superman with his bloody laser beams.

Shazam is not good in the air. He plays like a Bison with projectiles if that makes any sense. I need to get a hang of his punches though because I rely way too much on his lightning and barrel rolls.

Something that works really well is that he can call down lightning which stuns the opponent for an open second. I think I can take advantage of it. So far I've used it to get in a couple free grabs for some nice damage.

I think my problem is just getting close to my opponent and physically bashing him rather than making it a ranged fight. Which I'll always lose once the opponent closes in and starts beating me up like a nerd.

I'm going to try a different character tomorrow. Maybe Aquaman again or Hawkgirl. I need somebody who I can actually get real close with.

I was gonna post a Lobo video, but it looks like that has already been posted. I want to play this more and more every time I see more videos of it.

Apparently you can not unlock every costume in this game unless you play the iOS game. Like you can't get the Batman Beyond skin for the console game till you unlock Batman in the freemium iOS game. There is also no Android version of said app.

I hate to say this, but Shazam feels nothing like Bison. Black Adam is the one that is super Bison-esque, to the point where he literally idles in the cross armed pose and does head stomps.

Shazam is a light command grab character with a mediocre projectile and teleport and some of the only real footsies in the game, which may really be the only reason why he's been able to stay relevant this far in. His biggest strengths are his 50/50 on knockdown and his crossup ability with his Torpedo.

You need to utilize meter burn whenever you can as he heavily relies on, more-so than most characters. Because his d3 is one of the better footsie tools in the game, you are capable of playing some decent mindgames with your two different grabs at mid-range. On a hard knockdown you can either go straight into your 50/50 and go for standing command grab or low command grab or cross-up with your MB Torpedo and then go for your 50/50. (Note that you can cross up with regular torpedo, I just can't remember the correct circumstance off the that situation)

Also, his best AA is j2 iirc. I haven't played for a few days so it kind of slips my mind, but you can actually do that into a combo if you're PRO E-SPORTS enough. ALSO ALSO, got em in a corner? Literally your best string is 112, 112, 112, 112, 112, etc. It synergizes well with your trait so abuse it and use it to trick people into a command grab.

e: Almost forgot, but his b2 is pretty rad and covers a lot of ground. If you're playing someone who can anticipate your Torpedos you can b2 into MB Torpedo and always AT LEAST touch them. In most cases you get them because they're backdashing.

I can't find the video I wanted, but it is of the same guy I was looking for and it is still awesome Shazam play.



e: Oh no wait here it is.
