Are you a boy or girl?
I really hate to argue, but I dont see it.Dunno why people are shitting on V1 lmao It's acutally pretty good.
This is not true. You have BF3, DB1/DB1 cancel and if you hit 34 at max range it combos into BF2, being the most meterless damage you can get from 34, in V1.
He doesn't need Necroblast, the variation is fine as it is. The guns ain't bad at all, DB1 has decent range for it's uses, BF1 it will always connect the AMP version even if the 1st hit tags the opponent. BF1 gives the best meterless damage out of B12 24 and pushes them away.
By playing this variation, in time, you'll play at the ranges for his best normals - B1/F2/3/F4
This variation isn't meant to be zoning, in fact, Spawn isn't a zoning character.
V1 has more damage than V3 and DB <3
All his variations are good imho I just prefer V1. Been rocking it on KL!
Also, you guys know that b12 24-ender isnt the optimal, right? Its b12, f23-ender, and there is no logical reason to send them full screen with guns so restand is the optimal ender? Meaning you shouldnt be using guns in combos meaning they must be useful for pressure or zoning, right?
Well bf1 will connect at certain ranges off strings, however the amp is a high that WILL be ducked and punished, same as the low's amp. Without the amp they are unsafe yet there are ranges you can be pseudo-safe vs characters with no fast forward progressing moves. You reset neutral for the 34 game at best, with nothing but bf2 and bf3 to keep that safe and effective or more guns to risk your life bar, I guess. Im not saying there arent things you can do, Im saying it all leads to very little reward and its very risky and it may seem good on paper but most people already know the MU. Amp guns being a high is really awful. bf2 and bf3 are outclassed by other variations moves and they are what youll be using to try to make this variation work.
Zoning? The guns work at just inside 3/4 screen. He has nothing full screen. The bf2 parry is good on read for single hitting projectiles, but thats it. bf1 in v2 and v3 is literally a better zoning tool than both guns. So, absolutely not a zoning variation, I agree. But also not a mix heavy var, not a grappler for sure, no fast buttons for rush, what is his identity? Another classic Nrs "Mid range footsie character"tm?
He gets three added abilities in v3, all unsafe, all situational at best, all out classed by another move.
I wanna be convinced Im wrong. Give me some setplay youre using, tell me how you use low shots. Max range shoot their toes for the 2% chip? Like I do not get how you can think its okay. I was only interested in V1 and after a week I literally just gave up. I played Dvorah at release when she was buns, Im used to a struggle, but Spawn V1 is actually not competitive IMO.
