2v2 horrors...

9 replies 187 views Edited Nov 22, 2012

I cannot stand playing 2v2 anymore...  All that ever happens is two people are playing as a combo of Raiden, Dante, and Kratos...  It just pisses me off because you can't do a THING against them. They just go to town on your **bleep**.  My brother and I simply stopped playing it was getting so bad... Is anyone else having a problem like this?

That combanation is getting really annoying. I have to spam the b launcher for spike just to keep them still, and I can't get online in 2v2 without using a character I'm actually good at.

You can always go into a long-range tag team. I find that Spike's Neutral Triangle skill is very helpful in a 2 vs 2. Range characters need space, so in the case of fighting Dante, Kratos, or Raiden, you will have a certain advantage. You just need to keep your distance. Dante's Angel Step is an issue since it can go through players and certain attacks. He can easily just break off a combo with Angel Step and make a new one right behind you. The key word is spacing when fighting combo characters. Also, just practice in Versus Mode as a 2 vs 2 team and have the CPU level set at 5 (Red). You will definitely need to step up your game there. If you don't want to try something that difficult, try just doing it on the Lv. 3 setting (Blue).

It's the only answer you can give: "You suck!", "You need practice".

**bleep** you, those characters are OP and that's a fact, stop defending this game in every single thing.

If you know an opponent is spamming you should be able to think of a way to counter it. Me and my brother play a combo of big daddy and toro and we have seen many Raiden and kratos players and have beaten most of them. It really comes down to knowing the match up and your opponent's strategy based on the character. Take Raiden for instance, he always wants to be up close and personal. knowing this I can set up a counter like big daddy's freeze. then once I got him caught I combo away.

Are you using characters with good synergy?

As terrible as those combinations are, I have had a decent amount of success with random partners against these teams simply by running Big Daddy, who seems to have a lot of synergy with a lot of characters,

Similarly, one of the most devastating combos I've faced was a Parrappa/Dan because for some strange reason they seem to work well together.

Oh, and a Heihachi/Raiden team whooped my **bleep** one time too, but I think that had more to do with the fact it was played by Atomsk (A top Smash player) than anything.
