Tasksmaster and Wesker play absolutely nothing alike.


Yeah they don't play similar but are pretty similar in function. Like Wesker can rush down and switch to zoning if needed, where Tasky can zone then rush when needed to.


Then the same can be said of multiple characters.

Magneto can rushdown and zone.

Akuma can rushdown and zone.

Doom can rushdown and zone.

The only thing Taskmaster and Wesker really have in common is their footie normals are really good.

Wesker is more of a mixup character with teleports, better crossup ariels, command grab.

Tasksmaster is more of a solid character with limited ways of opening an opponent up mixup wise but can force opponents to come to him due to his good zoning game and then high priority normals to counter people rushing him down.

They honestly ... overall ... play nothing alike.


Ok, I can see where you're coming from. Still, both are pretty good characters, especially when paired together.


That ... we can agree with.

And Wesker actually gives Taskmaster a way to open people up with the high/low unblockable setup.

That's the scary thing about TaskMaestro, if he manages to open you up somehow...you're dead. Period.

I want to know what exactly about Task hasn't been explored yet. Let's ignore my own BnB with Task that kills anyone in the roster off a throw, without XFC or any meter used.

He's not like Viewtiful Joe or someone. P sure Task will remain where he is in the tiers for the forseeable future.

We'll continue to ignore it until you actually post proof of it.

Slept on? He's used fairly often online and off. Combofiend, Killer Kai, Mine, Honzo Gonzo, and many more use him.

Slept on doesn't mean used little, it means that they are underrated.

two task-facts for yall

- Taskmaster is something of a weaker middle ground between dante and vergil, he has the derp damage and multiple super gimmicks of vergil, with the zoming/utility of dante

- He's the most infuriating character I've ever played in a fg, and I've played quite a few.

wtf are "footies"? I've seen that used several times now on this board. Is that what Canadians say instead of "footsies" or something?
