Dieminion talks about ways to open up Morrigan's rushdown in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 One of the top Morrigan players, and often considered to be one of the smartest players in the fighting game community, EMP|Dieminion recently dropped some knowledge on how to counter the succubus' rushdown tactics in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.


Dieminion said that he didn't know why people were getting opened up by Morrigan's rushdown and offered some of the following tactics that could help prevent it from happening in the future.

Dieminion: For starters, Morrigan's Standing Light Cancel Flight has more than a 6 frame gap in between. Most character's Light Attack is 5 frames, Magneto, Nova, Ryu, etc., so you can easily press Light Attack in between the gap and get a full punish.

Also Morrigan's Standing Light is -2 on block, so you have advantage on block.

Hit the jump to read on.

xMOONS: But Morrigan is only going for mix ups when there's a lockdown (missiles)...

Dieminion: So jump and air block after you see Standing Light so you don't get mixed up. She is -2 so it gives you time to jump in between.

Also when dealing with Morrigan/Dr. Doom, if you have a character w/ air moves that stall or flight, your best bet is to get hit by missiles.

If you get hit by missiles you can stay in the air longer using moves to stall instead of blocking them and instantly falling into soul chip.

DB_Somniac: To be honest, that's my answer when I play Morrigan vs. Nova, but with Dormammu his Crouching Light or Standing Light are slow and the hitbox whiffs :(

Dieminion: Yeah, it doesn't work with all characters, only ones with 5 frame Standing Lights or less that hits mid which is a good portion of the cast.

RayRay19wun: So this it a completely viable strategy. I will start trying it out.

Dieminion: Thanks, I would really like to see it being used. I'd do it myself but I can't attend tourneys for a while.
