Question What Cage mains still play Injustice?

So I was thinking about this, after finally admitting I am just done with INJ. What cage mains take Inj seriously still? Curbo (although he went to kabal, he played cage for a while) never really got into it, Dizzy pretty much quit, Claude never took it seriously, Mikemetroid doesn't really take it seriously, I am quitting, etc. So who is left? Does Foxy still play? Do you think that there is a correlation between playing cage and not liking injustice? I mean he was based around chip damage and pressure (doesn't really exist), having good anti airs (different/ worse), and footsies (certainly exist, but are very different). If you mained cage and play inj, who do you main? Just a topic to consider.

I honestly don't see why Cage main's didn't main Flash in this game.

There's no real walksies, whiff punishing, anti-airs, pressure or chip damage. Why would JC mains bother with IGAU?

because i hate 50 50s. I am terrible at them and I have difficulty just simplifying it down to one guessing game. With cage you could have different mindgames going on such as which string you were using(st.2 had a duration of like 20 frames so they had to guess if you were going to use it if they wanted to poke afterwards), obviously the basic when am I going to stagger, plus throws, timing fwd3s to beat pokes in certain situations, random walk back b3 to beat pokes, etc. Cage was really stupid upclose but it wasn't because he just said block high or low.


Not to say flash pressure is that simple either, but that threat is always there and drives everything.
 
I hate b3... shits so cheap! My favorite aspect is whiff punishing normals with dat 21f2. Feels good man.
My favorite aspect of MK9 is doing the smallest standing 1 into the biggest dash, huh, dash, huh, dash, huh, dash, huh, dash huh, NUT PUNCH! I try to do it in IGAU with Deathstroke's D2. All the Swords DS whoops out in his combo's make it cool to do but it's just not the same.

me, but i also played shang liu kang baraka reptile kenshi raiden.. baraka probably was my best char.... and i really started to hate playing cage and more enjoy zoning and footsies.... and i don't really like playing cage... and i plan on playing a broken character and hopefully that character has some good zoning... the nrs chars that are best tend to be hybrids like mmh and kabal... good at everything


i play martian and zod.
 
i feel guilty when i hit people with zods trait.... i only like killing people with zoning... i also feel terrible when i have to pick cage to be someone and feel like i am just bullying my way to victory....i really changed the way i play.... i just play martian all day now

Another thing, cage could play to the endgame very well. He didnt have to get you every time he got in. He could come in and establish a pattern, maybe fwd3, 2, fwd33b3. Build meter, get some chip, and an opponent wouldn't risk interrupting because it wasnt a lot to take and they didnt want to take the risk. Then when cage wanted to make his move and go for the win he could play off this pattern to get some damage, maybe stopping that last string short and starting it over, etc etc. Since it all happens so fast, the opponent would often panic and be much more easily opened up. But it is hard to do this in INJ because at any second shit can go BAD. Get hit by GL and then guess wrong on wakeup? that is possibly 80 percent, gone. Plus with the 50 50s, it is much more effective because those mindgames do not need to be established, they work right at the start of the set.

You are only bullying them if they don't know the matchup or they play a character that cage beats pretty badly. Or online lol. Cage online is basically bane in the corner with unlimited venom once he gets in.

Well, i guess i play a lot online so i don't like it online... but i guess i use him to counter online tactics... baraka is also a scrub destroyer.
 
I guess that is why i don't like playing zod online either because i get guilty when i do my laser mixups, i don't enjoy doing them or doing risky shit to win with him and getting away with zod charges... so i just pick martian... though noone ever fucking blocks this one mixup i do with zod...

the ultimate online tactic/scrub test with cage. Get to about sweep distance and just stand there. I swear to god every single one of them with jump or do something unsafe. It is hysterical.
