Vergil does a random dimensional slash...

#1n0s2004Posted 2/18/2013 1:55:12 AM
...& it still hits a cross atleast half the time. I've noticed that if you crouch block it is more likely to hit you. Anyone has any information on this when & where to safely block it?

what happens, similar to weskers super, is that he manages to slide past you and you have a split second of not blocking, so you get crossed up

you basically always have the time to upback after he does it, which should make this way harder if not impossible to happen

Yeah it's pretty rage inducing when it becomes a 50/50. It'll probably take a lot of trial & error to find out if there's a pattern to his orbs depending on the spacing from which he executes the hyper.

TK'd Dimension Slash crosses up at point blank range too, so keep that in mind.

One thing I've noticed with Phantom Dance and Dimension Slash is that the first few 'wall bounces' of Vergil and Wesker are always:

1.) around15 degrees angled either up or down towards the direction of the opposing point character
2.) after that, around 15-45 degrees angled in down or up (opposite of the first 'bounce') towards the point character
3.) If they start off screen, they will usually hit you within the 3rd 'bounce'.

I kept this in mind for a while now and I can block random Phantom Dance/Dimension Slash almost consistently. Like maybe 95% consistent, instead of the usual 50/50.

That is why I just shoryuken when the hyper starts. Clips him (and Wesker) out of their bullshenanigans 98% of the time.
