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).
i found certain charicters complement each other , BOTH coles have a move that levels a enemy vounerable..
for example jaks mass inverter i hard for jak to combo into but say its jak and cole ... mass inverter , freeze.. alpha blast is **bleep** down town..
Sounds like you need practice.
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.
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.
