You don't always have to combo into his lv 1. People are sometimes so predictable. Be on a lookout when be attempt moves that crash down in a down arc. I get people like that all the time.
His lv 2 is so AWESOME! What you want to do is always make sure there is a player right above you! Anywhere above you, then you use it.
I only ever play 2 vs. 2. I always get 3 kills and if I'm lucky, 4. The issue I have with his lv 3 is if people commit suicide on purpose. Like jumping off the map or jumping into the water to reset the beam. I planned on making a thread about this, if any people attempt to commit suicide after being in Dan's beam circle, they die. Simple as that.
I honestly don't think Sir Dan needs a nerf or a buff. He's a monster in the right hands! Big maps are not his thing, that's his weakness. And if you're complaining about players just rushing out of the circle, try to predict their next step. It's very rare that I get under 3 kills in 2 vs. 2. But to only get 3 kills in FFA? Are you really trying?
On specific maps, against specific characters like raiden, dante, sly, spike, etc who have teleports and air dashes. Its pretty worthless.
and other than comboing into his level 1, i also shoot straight up at people on platforms above me. The looks on their faces when i pull it off must be priceless, cause they dont know enough about dan to know that he can do that.
Like I said, it's very predictable, always try to stay centered when you get to these punks. Don't let them stay by your side. Dante can't get far with his Dash, neither can Raiden if you keep moving. You can't teleport or dodge when in Sir Dan's beam circle.
And what about when they respawn? They're all spread out i can only get maybe one more bore the hing kicks out.
Well his level 2 is just bad and that's the end of that. I mean a good player can easily dodge those. His level 3 is terrible because people can just run out of it and reset the timer.
His level 1 isn't awful for a level one. It comes out quick and can be used in some interesting ways.
I just think some of his attacks could use a bit of super armor, or at least come out quicker. His over triangle doesn't need that long of a startup.
I main Sir Dan and I think his level one is fine. If you HAD to change something id give it a tad more range. The Level 3 is annoying that people can reset the timer by stepping out of it or jumping off the map but level 3's dont need to be the be all end all, skilled players can win with 1s and 2s. The 2 is what I have a problem with vs noobs its great almost always 3 kills but anyone who knows what it does can dodge it wayyy too easliy. Id suggest maybe a faster homing on the missiles or have more missles than just 1 per person.
I've caught a few players in the air after using a charged down triangle hammer smash. Not sure if they have the ability to airdodge or recover. I only did it the other day and haven't tried it again since.
Sir Dan's supers are a lot more reliable than Radec's...
Not sure if serious
dude i can get more kills with Sir Dan's supers...
just because you can get more kills with sir dans supers, that doesn't mean they're more reliable than radec's supers
