Play Wesker, Strider, Strange if you really want to play Dr.Strange and Strider together. Those two assists are imo Wesker's best assists, they turn him into an absolute monster.


Sure, I'll give it a shot.


I have a few suggestions for you

In terms of team order, you have two options which I think are great
Wesker [gunshot], Strider [vajra], Strange [bolts]
or
Wesker [gunshot], Strange [bolts], Strider [vajra]

Personally, I think all of the characters compliment each other really well, if you go with the first route, you can use X-Factor if you want with oroboros + bolts assist to do some serious damage and mix ups.

If you go with the second route, I don't know much about Strange to be perfectly honest, but you can do this
Combo -> Hard knockdown -> Call Strider assist -> Spell of Vishanti -> Strider assists knocks them down -> Spell of Vishanti again

It's a really fun team with a ton of mix up potential, the only downside is that you have to know how to use Strider and Strange, but since you already want to do that, this team should be great for you.


Thanks for this
I'll probably go the second route for mix-up potential
time to go in the lab

Yeah, no problem! To be honest, both of the variations are great since the team can work in any order, so it's not that important as to what the order of Strider and Strange are.

TC I think the order is throwing people off

Vajra and bolts is a great shell though and Chris or Hawkeye could both benefit from it greatly. Considering that you want a point strider, and anchor strange then put strider second to have bolts as an assist.

think you're right about that.
Guess I really didn't mean find a "middle" character. Much rather, find a 3rd somewhere in that combination

Yeah

Hawkeye or Chris/vajra/bolts is good thing
Strider/bolts is good
Strange/vajra is good
Anchor strider is good
Anchor strange can be done when comfortable with him solo

Actually, the order is fine, it's the synergy that I'm more concerned about.
Strider/Strange can handle zoning, but they suck at rushdown. What you need is a character with better damage, less screen specific combos, who don't rely too much on XF and with a defensive assist to help Strider point game. Cap Charging Star and Akuma Tastu are those characters.
But if you wanna stick with the characters you've mentioned, then go with Task.

I really suggest a more practical, high-reward 3rd character for that team.

This team looks mega hard to run the main problem to me is strider with strange, sounds like a happy birthday waiting to happen. When i used to play point strider his problem is that big body characters get way too many chances to kill you. If your heart is set on that team order I'd say pick taskmaster a decent all rounder which the team doesn't have

Strider/Strange/Dante.

Pick EoA/Weasel Shot or Bolts/Jam Session based on matchup. Run Strange second so you can setup Legion into 7 Rings for a FoF loop setup. Strange only needs 2 bars at the most to kill the entire cast, and thankfully Vajra assist makes it possible to get 2 SoVs in one combo.
