Dante's EC

39 replies 250 views Edited May 9, 2013

   If you thought this was going to be a rage post, you're wrong. We've all seen plenty of posts raging about Dante's EC, but I honestly am fine with it, I just hate that majority of Dante's are serious turtlers. However, that's not the point of this!
   I've only seen Dante's that abuse the EC like mad in-game, but on the forum I've seen several people claiming that they don't and are still able to dominate. Well I played Dante when I first started, but I didn't really ever get a serious grasp on him and his combos. Recently picked him back up (nearing 999) and I've gotten better and have been able to do great in a few matches, but I feel that I'm still lacking. I'd really appreciate at least some tips in response or even to play alongside some better players to watch and learn.

I could help you out when im free (usually weekends). Other great Dante players that are a lot better than me include Pheracus and Cutscene_Dante (that i can think of off the top of my head).

 

Also, check out these vids for some ideas:

By the way you're not alone in your opinion. I actually don't care about the empty cancel either; I don't really think that it's that bad compared to other things (like Issac's gun loop or Zeus' dodge). But at the same time I'd rather SSM nerf it just so that the gaming community will be happy with Dante again. (Personally I still can't do the empty cancel. I guess my fingers are just too slow).

Yeah I can't do it either, yet :smileywink:. I'll add you and maybe we can play sometime this weekend. But yeah Isaac is in serious need of nerfing, in my opinion, since he has two loop combos. MRW I first saw the gun loop: "Wait... What? Why can't I get out..... Why isn't he reloading? AP BURST!? what? WHAT? WHAT!?!" It would be nice if they could somehow nerf Dante's EC so that it can't be looped, because I'm fine with it being a KC or leading into a combo, despite that it's annoying.

P.S. I'm stealing the character icon in your signature, I've been looking for a Dante one. Thanks

Haha, no problem. I actually posted the link in the "How Do I..." thread to where all the original images are.

Thanks man :smileyvery-happy: My brother and I wanted to get a different avatar than the basic tiger one. So we literally sat down and went through all of them trying to figure out which one we both wanted. And shampuru won. Although we both don't know what a shampuru is...

A shampuru is the peon of choice for Chou-Chou in a JRPG called Mugen Souls. Not a game I'd recommend though.

The gameplay is drab and unsatisfying, and the story is like a really bad anime.

 

The shampurus are cool though. ♥

Awesome thanks! What's wrong with it exactly? If YLOD, I don't know what to say unless the disk is still in the system, if that's the case I know how to get it out.

Haha, yeah I'm not into those kinds of games anyway :smileytongue: My bro and I just like how it looks.
