So is the Bomb Trap still worth learning? I thought I heard it got patched, and I was thinking of picking up one of the Robo's, Cyrax being the one I am looking at the most.
Yeah, I suppose. It will probably be patched soon. But after the bomb trap is gone, Cyrax will slide way down on the tier list. The bomb trap made up for his shitty normals. He has NO STRINGS that have a low hit in them. So that means that you're forced to sweep, which he has a slow sweep.
what about d+3/d+4?
can he link any specials from them like reptile? it doesnt count as a combo but because of the amount of frames both have to be blocked.
Enhanced Ragdoll hits low first...not a string but has 3 hits for a decent amount of damage. But, I believe thats all, besides low pokes and his sweep.
No, you can only poke with them for low damage.
Yeah, but it's a waste of 1 bar just to get in one low hit when there are characters that have many strings that have low hits.
I'd say it's a waste of it doesn't win a round or the match. With one bar I can do 55-60% consistently. The EX ragdoll does maybe 12%.
If I can make better one of one bar, then I will. There is no point in using one bar to do 12% damage when I can use one bar to get 60% just as easily. I use low pokes often too. I don't see what your problem is. But I won't be replying to you anymore, you're just trolling.
is it brecause of the comment on 50-65% damage? cuz im telling you right now one thing im not doing is trolling. i dont have a problem, merely trying to provide clarity to the "cyrax needs a low combo string" debate. obviously its not "just as easily" or you wouldnt be saying you need one! if they are blocking your 60% damage (that still seems rediculously high to me im just being honest) strings you need to get them to block low, you do that with sweeps/pokes and anything else you have, including ex ragdoll, for a single move 12% isnt bad.
