    A while ago REO posted a video on doing a mix up with Fate off his 112 string. I decided to mess with it a bit. It ends in overhead and 11 is +1 on block. You can even pressure with it because if you do 11 on block, people usually expect the overhead to come and block high, so you can do 11/112 again. You can add his 12 frame D3 into this, so it can catch people off guard when they expect the whole 112 string and you do 11,d3.
    Now if you are in trait and have at least 1 ankh it becomes so much more dangerous. The usual 112 is now way better, because on block you do 112xxdf1,df3 and the ankh drop leaves you plus. On hit you get 112xxdf1, df3, f3,j2,d1xxdb2 for about 380 damage. What is great you can get similar combo by doing d3,df3,f2xxdb2 after 11. You get about 250 damage if the block the 11 and get opened up by d3. This are the basic meterless overhead / low options with 1 ankh, assuming they block 11 and get opened up by either the overhead part of 112 or by d3.

    Low, 1 ankh, meterless

    Overhead, 1 ankh, meterless

    With background bounce it becomes even more fun)


    2 ankhs meterless options

    Low with 2 ankhs, meterless

    Overhead with 2 ankhs, meterless

    With 1 ankh and a bar of meter you can do these

    Low with 1 ankh, 1 bar

    Overhead with 1 ankh, 1 bar

    What do you think guys, will it help mix some people up)?


    Hey all,

    I'm playing my Firestorm friend and it seems near impossible to trade fireballs with him any space other than full screen. And even then its super tight. Any tips on dealing with this? Also if there is a fate mains discord I would love a link. Just trying to learn :)

    So, apparently, dr fate's projectiles do the same damage as deadshot's sand his mb orb stays like 1 or 2 seconds less on the screen.

    I was expecting some nerfs TBH. The projectile nerf is whatever but the MB orb nerf is a thing :p

    Now that the dust has settled from the last patch I'm seeing Fate appearing as an S+ in multiple tier lists. Seems pretty peculiar that he lurks in the top 15 or so for most of the game's life until he's nerfed and suddenly he's S+ tier? Am I missing something? Do people really consider him top 5 now?

    Dankster Morgan Good luck getting through the shell

    People saw Dr. Fate as top 5 patch before last as well
    Cursa and Espio like this.

    wsj515 I will spit on your tomb

    People have been telling me that the Fate/Superman MU is a 5-5 because of Fate's use of ankhs. While they obviously help some, I feel like they take too much setup for their outcome, which doesn't always net anything, to actually sway the matchup. Could someone help explain this to me?

    Cursa Counterpoke with armoured DB2 at all times.

    Fate has been like top 5 since Deadshot got nerfed basically. Maybe not after patch, Idk, but he still seems strong to me as long as B2 and F2 are both things.

    Hello, I have picked Fate recently (and started learning it) and now I check his jump attacks. Which one should be used for air to air?
    I see both J1|2 quite solid according to the frame data not only the J1.
    According to the frame data the J2 is a bit better however J1 looks like better hitbox.

    I try to ready as many threads I can but thanks for the advice.
