In 1v2 are you at a disadvantage?

When you play solo vs tag.

Yeah, statistically. You have about 1.5x a normal health bar, which is still less than their combined health.

you also cannot do red bar damage outside of forcing a tag crash.

The main advantage to going solo is that you get rage a LOT more often.

Too many variables.

I know I managed to kill a guy before he could change a few times too, but yea. Variables.

There's a tradeoff of tag players having more health to work with but also taking a more damage, while the reverse applies to solo. However, if the tag player isn't that skilled or is somehow overwhelmed, the extra bar can be totally negligible.

Your are more prone to taking more punishment from the Oki game since you don't have a Tag Crash to "bail" you out.

I meant variables as in skill level, characters, lucky breaks, etc.

Thing is, there is never a fight where you get to FULLY use both life bars. Every fight ends with some of the life bar wasted.

I'd say characters like Paul, Bob, etc, that can absolutely wreck you off of one good read in rage mode, are probably not at a disadvantage at all. That being said, a team like Jin/Nina, where both characters get rage faster than normal because they trust each other and have a few of those scary high-damage pokes themselves, offsets that advantage; there are lots of variables.
