Becoming a better batman

Hey guys i need some help at becoming a better batman.

Alright so first off I know the trait combos such as back 1 1 3 trait. 123 rb. Back 3, etc. But I always have trouble getting it. Any advice besides practice it.

Also I got the Dartharma special down so I like to go for resets. But I can't get any damaging combos down when I need them. I can never get a combo into MB up grapple and even if I do I can't get the back 3.

Next. The 1 1 2 string. I know batmen like to use this string but I don't ever use it. I always go for something else because if it hits it'll lead to a combo into a reset for 1 bar. Any tips on 1 1 2 usage?

Next. I have a few problem matchups. I lose a lot to Zatanas, and Scorpions. Any advice on the matchups?

I don't know a damn thing about Batman, but it's nice to see that somebody's still playing this game.
 
Haha yeah I love Injustice. I consider myself a decent player. I've learned most of the matchups at around my skill level. I guess a follow up question would also be what do you guys like to do when pressured? Dash back, jump out, pushblock etc? I try and interrupt aquaman and damn I get blown up. I hate it when people CP me :(

what is that?

oh it's release bats. i don't do that rb into b3 stuff too much, i think its better to save precious trait and sacrifice like 5% or whatever.

Also I got the Dartharma special down so I like to go for resets. But I can't get any damaging combos down when I need them. I can never get a combo into MB up grapple and even if I do I can't get the back 3.
after you successfully reset your opponent and attempt the j2 ( i prefer j3) 50/5o jump in, your string should be b1, 112, or 123. any other bock string is bad and limits your options if your opponent guesses correctly. go to the this thread and learn the max damage for those combo starters.

Next. The 1 1 2 string. I know batmen like to use this string but I don't ever use it. I always go for something else because if it hits it'll lead to a combo into a reset for 1 bar. Any tips on 1 1 2 usage?
112 is your blockstring meant for hit confirming, used after a ji2 exclusively. there's some kind of weird block animation after ji2 that forces your opponent to block what is usually a high (11*2) as a mid. if your ji2 hits, 112 should provide enough time for you to be able to hit confirm a mb grapple or background bounce into more damage. if they block ji2, you cancel 112 into mb batarangs plus frames and try for another mixup.


Next. I have a few problem matchups. I lose a lot to Zatanas, and Scorpions. Any advice on the matchups?
like any zoning, batman has to make slight reads that are dependent on your opponent's patterns in neutral to get in on zatanna. you can catch runaway-usually-no-footsies- zatanna players with grapple. or patiently walk them down to the corner with trait until they panic and teleport behind you.

uh, scorpion you can just hold down when he does either version of teleport and press standing 1 to punish. this matchup is like 7-3 batman

there's so much you can do to up your game, but it's hard to just explain things in a general sense. the best thing you can do is look up youtube videos of top batmen, study what they do to expose yourself to all different forms of his playstyle to understand the character in a more complete way. batman has a little of everything in this game, you gotta master every part of him. oh and if batman gets KD, it's gg just quit on the spot.

but really there's no reason to play batman when harley is a just a better version of him tbh.

batman's backdash puts a good space between each other. i do instant air sparkles, or most attacks can't chase his double jump. it depends.

you have no pokes, but you do have neutral j2/ trait/ sparkles/ parry/ b2.
