I hate to say it but that jump slice can be substituted for a simple triangle attack from any weapon for the same result...then followed up with just about anything.
Sounds frustrating FOR SURE! I imagine this was a premeditated attack in a 2v2 setting. I've come across alot of good duos in 2v2. There is a way around what they were doing...mainly not letting them isolate one person but even then a great coordinated attack probably would still yield a similar result. I'd actually like to work on finding a partner to go into 2v2s and work out strategies and counter-strategies. THere haven't been a whole lot of opportunities to do this yet but I imagine the 2v2 crowd is going to be pretty brutal at some point.
Again with the devil's advocacy: How is that different than what we were doing with the Helios Hammer as a 4some earlier?
