Soul Stealing Loyalist
I haven't tried zoning with Corpse too much since, as you said, I always got AMP Scud Shot on reaction. I should try it more.Riffle stance zones every kharacter in the game, that is why it’s only 8 shots. With Shang’s zoning options that shouldn’t be a problem for a whole match. Scud shot doesn’t work against corpses. You zone him with that, after he’s learnt that Scud shot doesn’t help, your other options open up.
Even if he amplifies scud shot before your Corpse falls it’s whatever, just 6% and he just lost a bar, you will take more damage by making him block 3 corpses.
The only time you really can’t zone is when he’s got FB ready.
I think the MU is closer to 5:5, but I need to play it more
Yeah, not really. Drone drop knocks down, so even if it does less damage it gives her the turn, which is super big since her projectile is better than Shang's in every possible way.I don’t think her drone is better. It is different , it has better hit advantage. And that’s it. The start up is 30 frames , while Shang’s is 26. It only does 6% damage (9% for the Corpse), and is -23 on block (-16 for the Corpse) . On top of all that it only does 1.75% chip. And every time she blocks your Corpse there is a mind game of Amplified or not. She has to either wait a bit or jump out before the amplify. Both of which give you another turn at a skull or at another corpse.
