Ein Strategy
------------

6.1 Against Computer

Itīs easy to beat the, comp if you know how. You have to get him stuned
and start a combo. Bests starts for combos that causes stuns are f,f+p,p
or f+p. They are the fastes way to get you computer oponent stuned. The 
combos donīt have to be long they must damage your oponent. ANd try to 
make BIG juggle combos, just because of ONE reason as long as our 
oponent is in air he cannot hit back. But if you not a comboguy try to 
make short high damage moves d,df,f+p or uf+p,k, and try to hit your
oponnent against a wall or hit him to the next stage, so he will loose
some more energy except of that, itīs looking damn good if the camera
follows your way down. But the best way is to combine the to methods
wisely :-) at every situation.

6.2 Against Human Players

Itīs a bit different to play against human players and I think itīs so 
because they use to counter every second punch or kick in a combo. So 
the best way to win is to make a stun and a short or long MID AIR COMBO
not on the bottom because he will be able to counter again, so you will 
get more damage as him at last. Make a stun like f+p or uf+k or something 
else, hit him in the air uf+k or ub+k and give him a good combo p,p,f,p,k,
or if you near a wall f+k,k,f+k he will loose 20 damagepoints more. And
if you see a good chance to hit him after a combo at the end of his motion
donīt counter (just if you want) give him an hopkick and make a combo again.
Throws in DoA2 are not very easy but if you get him THROW him, a good time
to throw is, when your oponnent trys to counter if you get near him so donīt
be stupid and do the same throw him before he is going to do it. And donīt
forget to hit him while he is on the ground ;) d+p. Another important thing
is that you shouldnīt allow your oponnent to start a combo, be faster and
learn how to use the stunmoves to start your combos. 


6.3 Tag Mode

In Tag Mode is the most Importand thing, that you have to know your 
character(s) very good. What I want to say is that you have to know when to
chance. Not only if you donīt have enough energy anymore, you have to chance
in every combo you start. Iīm playing with ein and Kasumi and one of my 
Combos is looking like this:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
13hit Combo!
db+k,p > p,p > db+k,p -->Kasumi > p,p,ub+K -->Ein > p,p,f+p,d+k
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is a good looking combo and a good combo. Use every move you make and make a 
combo with it. Donīt hit your oponent in air and wait start changing and give 
him some hits. But you have to find out for yourself how to combine. The rest
just like playing against a computer player.


6.4 Survival Mode

In Survival mode you have to knock your oponnent away with moves like f+s+k or
d,df,f+p every time he comes near, or you do big mid air combos but donīt rush
make it slow and if you on the ground stay and wait for your points. Donīt be
a full and run into your oponnent if he is just standing there wait untill he
is running to you. Thatīs the basics for the survival mode find out the rest
:-)
