This is for team members that compliment Wolverine.

I will update when viable members are proven otherwise no.
This is in tournaments not playing against your friend Joe Bob Watanabe.

The first I am trying is: X-23 and Deadpool.

    I had Wolverine and Sentinel with whatever 2nd I feel like. However, I picked X23 when I would lose the first round. It's like 2 different wolverines on the team since they're both fast, have fast normals, and can really mess with someone. Playing last night, there were times where I would eliminate a point and a 2nd in no time because they didn't know where wolvie was coming from on top of dealing with sentinel.

    So pretty much, rush down, call sentinel towards end of block string, repeat. Dive kicks help too. Super jump -> dive kick asap while calling sentinel force, you get the dive kick crossup and they have to figure out when/where to block. When you have X charge or savage charge, whatever his power up mode is, it gets real nutty.

    So

    Wolv/Sentinel with hyper force assist is good for lockdown/corner pressure. Doom rocks would be a good assist too I think.

    Sentinel Seems like a really good member. I think X-23 Ankle Slice Assist would be good as well to create some mixup opportunities.

    I tried Chun too and legs is pretty nice and its easy mode when you land it to combo into hyper.

    Really wolverine has to get in and stay in, and unless he has someone throwing stuff across the screen, it's gonna be a pain. He won't be great in the long run of the game because if he's push blocked and has no rocks/rockets/stuff to shield him he really has nothing. I mis-timed my assist and trish push blocked then did the tracking super. Nothin I could do about it until she came for me.

    I really had way more trouble getting in on Chris, Trish, Dante. It was mad hard. It seems like Berserker Slash goes through projectiles with right timing. I saw someone do it when I walked in my friends place. I will have to check again.

    Edit:Completely Theory Fighter but I wonder how Dormmamu would help him out.

    Ok, so fast fireballs even with drones makes it hard. I tried getting in with Wolverine against Ryu and it was damn near impossible. He can fill the screen with them almost and my friend that plays Ryu/Akuma/Haggar kept me out and every time I got in, Haggar's lariat assist knocked me back out. Wolverine is gonna have some problems. Need a faster assist, maybe Magneto's hand ray thing.

    Was using Wesker/Wolverine/Mag last night, and was feeling pretty good about it.

    After a basic BnB -> j.S finisher -> down forward B OTG with Wolverine, you can dash forward and be in perfect position to set up an unblockable with Wesker assist and Wolverine's j.S. In the corner, you don't even need the dash. Really easy shit.

    Random ass Berserker Slash xx Berserker Charge (hit or not) + Mag's EM Disruptor made getting in a little easier. If Berserker Slash hits and you cancel into BC, you can combo after. If not, you can still stay on the offensive.

    Also, Wolverine's Berserker Barrage assist makes for some sick nasty Wesker OTG combos.

    Assists that are good for wolverine are full screen slow projectiles and lockdown assists. Sent drones are too good, Ammy cold star, Arthur's dagger, Doom molecular shield. Up close you can do strings like A > B + lockdown assist > C xx whatever (drill claw > dive, barrage, slash xx super). Lockdown assists would be like Doom's molecular shield, Dante jam sesh, Chun Do dodo kick, Ammy cold star etc.

    I have been, these are the teams I like so far.

    I've only been playing for roughly one day, so I plan to experiment much much more.

    Just started playing with Wolvie and probably going to main now :D. I paired him up with Amaterasu's Cold Shot move to get out of corners and can be followed by Berserker Slash to get around the opponent (possibly to start up a combo)

    wolverine/chun/sent chun helps wolverine gett in
  • goblinmarinegoblinmarine Joined: Posts: 318Registered
    I'm thinking of playing Wolverine/Arthur/Hsien-ko. I figure Arthur's fire bottle will help lock them down long enough for a berserker slash mixup. Could use Hsien-ko's gong assist to help against fireball spammers or her chain assist to keep them out of the air. Also lets me use Arthur as a battery then gold armor DHC into Wolverine's speed up hyper and go to town with gold armor fire bottles and fast wolverine.

    Jeez not much info on Wolverine yet.

    I think Arthur's Dagger (2nd) assist is key. You can use it to combo off of a Berserker Slash. It may also make the move safe if guarded. Letting you got for 50/50 mix ups of normal, and crossup Slashes.

    Not sure who else I am going to use. Doom for now.

    i use dante with jam session and dormammu with black hole

    when i do berserker slash out of fierce, using either assists ensures wolverine is safe and you can combo easily without meter into some pretty fierce stuff

    i have wolverine on point, try to get some decent momentum, switch to dante until i have good meter, and then try and get wolverine in there to kill people with the dirty mixups

    i have to practice more though =\

    I was using Wolv/Ryu/Doom. Then doom with arthur/ammy/sent.

    I don't think i need any type of AA for wolv. He has really good AA already. So i'm just thinking of good assits that work with him. I like Ryu to be able to DHC with all of wolvs stuff. Although after last night maybe akuma is better option lol?
  • MeLLoWMeLLoW Joined: Posts: 1,832Registered
    What about Akuma's tatsu assist? Can it help Wolverine in some way?
  • Boom CubeBoom Cube Joined: Posts: 420Registered
    Any assist that makes his instant overhead a reliable combo starter would be a great boon, and akuma's tatsu's probably good for that. But this could be said for a lot of assists. One with some other utility would probably be better, but I'm not about to start knocking people's character choices.

    I've been using Wesker's gun assist with good results. If you time it to land after the instant overhead, you'll make it damn near impossible to block and the hitstun from the gun is enough to allow sniktbub to combo after. That's for when you've established an offensive on a standing character; if you land a knockdown and just want to be a dick about it, you can set up an unblockable really easily with the gun and Wolv's j.S. Also, although Wolverine can OTG by himself, using the gun allows him to combo after. Course, it doesn't do as much damage as Akuma's tatsu, but I wouldn't be surprised if Wolv could make up for it in his combo.
  • MeLLoWMeLLoW Joined: Posts: 1,832Registered
    lol so confused, but I sort of understand. I'm gonna hit the lab right now.

    What about Akuma's tatsu assist? Can it help Wolverine in some way?

    i was checking the strategy guide it says akuma tatsu assist has priority vs projectiles or something? i wish it was more clear.
  • MeLLoWMeLLoW Joined: Posts: 1,832Registered
    really? I don't have anyone to test this with but I would also like to know because runaway projectiles are giving me a shitload of trouble. I don't know how to deal with it.. :\
  • DroDro keeping away like a boss Joined: Posts: 492Registered
    im thinking wolverine/dr doom/thor?

    or arthur/wolverine/thor mighty smash and hidden missiles can help him get in
  • MeLLoWMeLLoW Joined: Posts: 1,832Registered
    I'm not really doing anything with Storm tbh, and it's still getting hard to get in on those zoners. They can OCV my team if I can get in it's so bad. I like Akuma because of his mixups and way of doing about 70%-80% with his demon flip overhead + 1 meter.He can also zone pretty well although he's not as great as some characters but he has so much damage potential. Plus, i don't know how to properly use Wolv's Berserker slash mixup, idk the right assist to do the berserker slash mixup combos. I heard from a friend that Chun Li's lightning kicks help a bit with Wolv?

    Ok, seeing Jwong doing some nice things with Wolverine and Akuma's tatsu assist, I've been checking which characters can do the same. Hulk, Ryu and Zero can do the same things as akuma's tatsu.

    But Magneto's beam assist can also do these things as well as cover Wolverine as you are trying to go inside :amazed:. This makes Magneto the ideal teammate, since he also has nice dhc options with Wolverine.

  • MeLLoWMeLLoW Joined: Posts: 1,832Registered
    Yeah I found out Hulk can do the same as well by going to Mission mode on Mission 10. I don't know about Zero.. but I also thought about Chun Li, since she can really pressure with her assist and she's also a very offensive character as a secondary.
  • BrittonBritton Joined: Posts: 35Registered
    I've been running Wolverine(Barrage)/Taskmaster(forward Arrow)/Doom(Rocks) and it's been going pretty well. Rocks are so nice to advance behind and you don't have to be close to call it out. Taskmaster is really just there as a second character but his arrows beat a lot of projectiles and it also works for advancing behind if rocks aren't available. Task can also DHC nicely from both Fatal Claw, and for the rare occasion where you find yourself using BBX as well. Really liking the feel of the team so far although it's a bit jarring going from Wolverine's hyper fast pace to Taskmasters sort of methodical combo's.

    Yeah it can work with Chun li and Viper as well (Viper 2 different assist!) but with Viper when you do the assist after the throw these assist launch your opponent in the air and you have to jump immediately after to be able to do something after it, as opposed to being able to press launch yourself and then finish. And as for Chun, It seems I couldn't get a launch combo reliable for it aftewards.

    I've been using Hsien-Ko's gong>armor>free tag opening then abusing the shit out of Senpu Bu assists to make it painfully easy to go all out with Wolverine on point. Then I just build up meter and tag in Hulk to smash the puny humans. It's working great so far :D
