I want to discuss which characters you guys thinks Storm would have strong synergy with, may it be assists, DHCs or just natural team chemistry. Post your ideas or teams you like to use her in and why.

Lets get this thing started.

    I like use her in Storm/X-23/Sent. Whirlwind assist complements Sent and X as her whirlwind beats out most projectiles, provides cover for approach, and mirage feint mixups. She can Elemental Rage then DHC into Silent Kill or HSF for the DHC trick. She's a good battery for the team.

    I personally love storm with Chris. I don't know why exactly, but I tried this once when I was playing around and they just seemed to flow together IMO.

    I find that storm mixes really well with any team tbh, she is rather versatile and can DHC in or out of almost every single hyper in the game, can build a surprising amount of meter, and while she is at her best with meter can still be played effectively without it. With that said I think her and amateratsu is a particularly potent combination, cold star further compliments storms rushdown whilst whirlwind helps ammy keep away. The only real flaw I see storm having as a teammate, is a collection of meh assists tbh.

    WSS: TEAM DHC GLITCH
    Wolverine(slash) Storm(whirlwind) Sentinel(drones)

    So many DHC options and if storm and one of the other guys are still alive I can mange to utilize the DHC glitch from almost any combo opening.

    Start a combo with any char, air combo switch to Storm, end air combo with :s: OTG with Elemental Rage, DHC glitch into Wolverines :d::d::atk:atk: or Sentinels :qcb::atk:atk:, finish combo accordingly... boom 100% combo

    Plus IDK if there is a better keep away game than Storms Whirlwind at head height with Sentinels drone assist, even if they manage to get in they will get pushed back past half screen if they encounter a whirlwind

    EDIT:
    Ill post my bnbs in the combo thread

    Lol someone took my post personally




    I plan to run this team until (if) they patch the DHC glitch. If they do patch it I will likely trade Wolverine for Mags


    Since you wanna make it about you, it sure doesn't sound like you like that team. It sounds like your all about the dhc glitch, you know considering every post you have made in both threads are about nothing but the dhc glitch dhc glitch dhc glitch. All I know is some ppl get real sensitive over some dumb shit on this site

    work it out buddy and when your finished we can go back to focusing on MVC3. Maybe you should talk with your schools guidance counsoler.

    btw. im fine with my team and if I wasnt trying to maximize on the anlready outstanding potential of the team I choose to rock then Id be as foolish as you, with your original team. Team obscurity

    I'm running Storm/Dormammu/X-23. I can DHC Hail Storm -> Chaotic Flames to end combos and tag or Floating Bomb -> Hail Storm for cheap. Storm fast overheads and X-23 low assist make some good mix ups and Whirlwind + Dark Hole helps me zonning when needed.

    I don't that's the best use of Storm, but I'm having fun with this team. XD

    I've been playing around with Wesker/Storm/Phoenix lately (I finally buckled and built a Phoenix team for shits and giggles) with relatively good success. Wesker is a gdlk battery, Storm's Whirlwind gives him great cover to get in, and he can teleport to the over side of the opp for a crossup and it pushes them toward him (which is just plain mean, lol). Storm I use mostly for runaway, using Phoenix's TK Trap assist to catch people trying to jump over Storm's whirlwinds. And I'm working on Rushdown Storm so I can abuse that Samurai Edge assist too...

    Phoenix is obviously the core of the team (she pretty much has to be to work right). But I refuse to just keep her as an anchor for DPh, I switch her in the SECOND I get five bars and scare the crap out of people by rushing down with a character no one in their right minds wants to kill, lol. Plus Whirlwind and Samurai Edge make both her zoning and rushdown better :D

    Team Crazy Eyes

    I use storm (whirlwind), Wesker (samurai edge) and Taskmaster (horizontal arrows). This team is great for dhc cuz anyone can dhc into anyone. Plus I can use the dhc damage reset trick with wesker of taskmaster as long as storm is alive. Wesker is great for unblockable setups with his gun since storm has a great j.m as an instant overhead. Taskmaster is good cuz he gives my another projectile option n he's a great anchor imo. Please rate my team.

    ^you should post up your DHC Glitch combos for Storm/Wesker and Storm/Taskmaster in the combo thread. Im just interested to see what other ppl are doing.
    I just posted up my Storm/Taskmaster DHC Glitch combo in there yesterday with damage and meter data.

    Storm/Sentinel

    DHC, drones for solid rush downs and storm assist for relaunch when sentinel's out is just too much to pass out. I personally use storm/sentinel/dorm in that order. The DHC definately makes up for the damage she lacks in her combos.

    What kind of relaunches are you running with Sent + Storm? Do they give Sent a significant damage boost on his BnBs? I've been playing Sent + Whirlwind, but I'm definitely open to switching that shit up -- even though it works, it doesn't seem to be a particularly powerful assist for Sentinel.

    I'm talking about her Y assist. Idk the name lol it's the whirlwind that shoots verticle. If you do sent's BnB, as soon as you land call her and then dash and do rocket punch. If you timed it right she launches your enemy into the air and then you can immediately j:s: and score another ground bounce for another rocket punch into anything. With her assist you'll do around 500k+ w/o any meter and it builds more meter since you're extending the combo.

    Usually what I do after BnB is :a1: dash, RP, j:s:,:s:,sj:s: and go for the reset.

    What do you guys think of Storm as an anchor? Is storm xfactor hailstorm still viable tactic? And can she rush/get in good enough on her own?

    I'm interested in hearing what others think of Storm as anchor as well.

    And I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question about xfactor hailstorm correctly, but I'd say 2 things about it. First, its chip damage speaks for itself. Second, if your opponent is reckless/predictable with assists, it can gib them.
    Just make sure you cover its lengthy startup or a smart opponent will just stuff its activation. If she's your anchor, this can be a little trickier to do simply due to a lack of assists for cover.

    But back to the main point...please others share your thoughts on Storm as anchor (and other positions if you're so inclined).

    I sit Storm in the middle of any team that I run.
    But Its not the worst case scenario when she is the last one standing.
    Her whirlwind is a pretty strong zoning tool, even without an assist.
    LVL3 XFC Hailstorm is GDLK, time one for you opp as they enter, before they have time to place there feet on the ground and call XFC to prevent chip.
    If you catch an assist in a Hailstorm and it doesnt kill them, often time you can get them with some more hits if you call another one immediatly (I have issue with getting this to work 100%)
    XFC or not Storm can swoop in and out very fast, he normals can feel alittle slow but your abilitly to fly circles around your opp will make up for that.
    It does suck though try to get in with her without coverage from an assist, Ill have to admit.
    But XFC zoning with whirlwind can be deadly too, I do mostly air whirlwinds and mix it up with Lightning spheres in the appropriate directions

    I play Storm Trish Sent. My best character is Trish and Storm can DHC glitch into Trishs sword Hyper. If i have 3 levels and i feel like wasting meter and getting my opponent to say "what the fuck" then ill do a bnb with storm, elemental rage, dhc glitch into sword hyper from Trish, and then superjump and do Trishs other hyper... like i said, just for the lols, but they are cool lols :)

    Storm is also one of the very few characters to which i can DHC with my Trish BnBs... normally, when i end a BnB with Trish with her air Hyper, the hit stun from the last hits is too small to DHC into anything... and i fukin hate that.. but with storms Hail Storm its no prblem, that hit things on the 1st frame so its one of the only characters with which i can do that.

    Sentinel is there for 3 reasons... 1) he can also DHC Glitch with storm 2) His assist works perfectly for Storm and for Trish 3) X Faxtor lvl 3 Sentinel is still very very stupid, and can kill anyone with 1 hit, even if u suck as him as much as i do

    In my Arthur/Hulk/Haggar team, Hulk is such a liability. If Arthur dies, all people need to do is run away from Hulk and they win. Tragic...

    So I want to get rid of Hulk or Haggar and put in Storm. But I got 2 problems

    Haggar is THE better assist out of the 2. So he is quite the asset. Hulk has a bad ass GTFO assist too, but Haggar sets up alot... Its ridiculous how much he can set up for Arthur.

    I have a theory on a damn good DHC. Storm's Lightning Storm DHC to Hulk's Gamma Crush. If it works, then that is 80% of free damage. Ouch.

    So what should I do? Should I sacrifice a beast ass assist for a possible DHC (and my Hulk is better than my Haggar) or should I give up the possible great damage for this amazing assist?

    Btw, this team is lame is suppose to be lame as fuck, but its suppose to punish hard too.

    I appreciate all of your opinions.

    PS. WSS aint that good. In fact it sucks limp dick *Trollface*.

    WSS is quite the team actually. Its a shame that I don't play Wolvie no more...

    How do you guys feel about my team of She-Hulk(Torpedo), Trish(Peekaboo), Storm(Whirlwind)?
    Whirlwind assist helps against zoners and has pushaway if you want them off you, while peekaboo traps and stuns and somewhat provides as AA also. She-Hulk seems like a good point char for Trish/Storm for those two are very low on life, and if She-Hulk dies I have Trish w/ whirlwind assist to play a nasty zoning game and let them come to me. Storm is also a very viable anchor with her speed and Hailstorm chip dmg. DHC's are pretty good and have great possibilities for DHC glitch trick. Still wondering if I should switch Storm into second spot and put Trish as anchor to have better DHC for She-Hulk, and Trish w/ her speed is not a bad anchor either. Storm w/ peekaboo also plays a mean keepaway. What do you guys think? Any useful strats or suggestions? Thanks :D

    I would go with Hagar... every Lariat assist hit is a free hail storm... and if youre fast enough with hit confirming you can maybe even get a quick loop combo out of the Haggar assist and end it in OTG Hail Storm or Elemental Rage

    Ive been actually thinking about using a secondary Team of Storm as point, Sentinal as 2nd, and Haggar as 3rd... I like it because people will NOT WANT to get near me, no matter what char is on point as long as the Haggar assist is there... if Storm is on point every Haggar assist hit is either a Hail Storm or a loop combo into hail storm.... If Sentinel is on point every Haggar assist hit is a j.S into ground bounce into combo into HSF and in corner link to Plasma Storm

    Ver, VERY annoying ^_^

    I run Storm/Hulk/Dr. Doom and I do Elemental Rage -> Gamma Quake. This uses the DHC glitch. You have to DHC to Gamma Quake *before* the last hit of Rage for it to not only work, but for the DHC trick to work. Not at all hard to get over 750,000 damage with this depending on what Storm combos you're using.

    I like to stick to DHC glitches that allow me to continue to combo after the Hyper.
    Recently I began experimenting with:
    Wesker/Storm/Task
    Wesker/Storm/Sent
    after I saw some of the stuff AkitaZero was doign with them.

    Wesker Storm is cool, the glitch is reliable and possible from an OTG E.Rage.
    But my zoning game leaves alot to be desired with Wesker right now.
    But STorms whirlwind makes for some cool mix ups midscreen, like so:

    Wesker air BNB hard knock-down, dash in, call Whirlwind assist, :df::h: cancel :l: teleport.
    The whirlwind will push the opp pretty far back the the teleport will put you right behind them ready to do anything; throw, cr:l:, overhead, cross-up with j:s: and I think that you can even continue the combo, but I didnt spend time with this in training yet.

    Also After a Wesker BNB (launch, hard knockdown, :df::h:, assist, launch, hard knockdown) if you do a :df::h: and cancel it into :a1:+:a2: you get Hailstorm which is awesome because it will hit no matter where Weskers crazy ass takes them.

    Yeah for sure Ele Rage into Gamma Quake is probably one of the weakest practical examples of the DHC glitch in the game. Still pretty decent though. :)

    Wouldn't ER into gamma crush do more damage? I imagine gamma crush will hit on the way up so thats a good 400k added to your ~500k combo. Although its prolly not that straight forward what with damage scaling and all that good stuff.
  • Newtype AndyNewtype Andy CHECK MATE Joined: Posts: 806Registered
    Trust me, I have been Raging into Gamma Crush for weeks now, and I was like "this is amazing!" However, I finally looked into it and Gamma Quake is more damage. I didn't realize Gamma Quake works like Hyper Sentinel Force/Round Harvest/etc until recently (I haven't been playing Hulk for long). Gamma Crush does hit on the way up, but it's getting scaled damage, and while it is actually still comparable to Gamma Quake, it is less.
