Changing a lot of characters for Akuma would be a better composition. But he doesn't do that because he feels he works better with Akuma.

Obviously doom/ammy works extremely well. But akuma's assist allows morrigan to escape from rushdown at the start of the match, and when that won't work he can substitute in as point. He doesn't get enough credit on this team. How well he works is actually fairly subtle. He doesn't bring any flashy synergy but he allows the team to setup and not get mauled by rushdown when the match starts. Not to mention he's a great anchor when things don't get setup. Morrigan/Doom/Ammy would work well, but it would be focusing a bit more on doom than if you were to use akuma instead.

Eh. I see the argument, and I don't think you're necessarily wrong, but I think ChrisG needs a character that has super dangerous hypers and combo power, and that's not Amaterasu. Basically, you want a character that makes your opponent scared to use X-Factor on Morrigan. If you use X-Factor on Morrigan in the team of Morrigan/Doom/Amaterasu...who cares? If you burn it on Morrigan against Morrigan/Doom/Akuma, though, that means you have to deal with XF3 Akuma without any recourse, and that's goddamn scary.

Lvl 3 XF Ammy is far more scary than lvl 3 XF Akuma. Lvl 3 XF Akuma doesn't have that many incoming mixups options, while Ammy has paper and slowdown. And Chris G rarely leaves his Akuma last anyway, most of the time he tags in Akuma to use him with missiles. He makes far more comebacks with his Doom than with his Akuma.

I disagree re: XF3 Ammy being scarier.

It depends on what the team needs, but as far as ChrisG's team is concerned then yes Akuma fits better than Ammy.

I say this for one basic reasoning: Akuma's. Freaking. Chip damage.

Ammy wins as an anchor by having the speed advantage and stupid large boosts, but character with good air mobility still pretty much pose a problem. And no, Okami Shuffle is not really a solution as its damage is horrible. And going into the infinite from midscreen is stupid difficult.

The only time that Ammy will work more than Akuma in ChrisG's team is when Morrigan didn't do a damn thing, which is rare considering how well-refined ChrisG's play is already.
