Also, to answer your other question. His untraited corner combos are pretty simple, fun and easy (+ plenty of dami).

His traited corner combos are more diverse, as you can’t use db2 (unless mb, which I use for corner dot setups). I like using multiple orbs for swag, but most optimals involve ankhs if you can.
 
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)
Low

Overhead

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 :)

Woooooooooooooo!
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?

People saw Dr. Fate as top 5 patch before last as well

This is my billionth life cycle.
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?

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.

anyone got some good dr fate setups? is there any that use his health drain in trait?
There was a guy posting a Fate mixup earlier using ankhs. But in actual matches its all about the zone. The setup/mixup game is kinda irrelevant
I have posted some ankh combos and mix ups, I think his ankh pressure and red ankh usage in general isn’t maximized. He can be a hell up close.
Now I am not saying I use all of this potential myself, but I see how it can be practically effective.
I think I have mentioned before that my go to tactic if I have a red ankh or 2, and the opponent is in my f2 range, I throw ankh(s) and do an immediate f2, which if timed right jails into ankh.
If you have like 2 ankhs you cans do ankh drop,f2xx(ankhs explode)xxEx Red Aura. And then do either f2 or 11 pressure.
But besides that there are tons of pressure/mix up options when you have a red ankh or a frozen orb beside you.
Red Ankhs can also be used to meterlessly interrupt gaps for full combos, which makes him incredibly hard to pressure .
