Beginning of the round trouble

Hey guys, I’m fortunate enough to play some big names over here at the arcade I go to. And I’ve been having some real trouble with the beginning of the round mixups. Normally against magneto. I simply walk backwards to avoid getting grabbed but after the start they’re close enough to either initiate a mix up and I just can’t get away at time. I play Spencer/wesker/doom. With spencer on point. If I manage to get the first combo, I can kill off magnus. But I find if they’re good at grabbing which every good Magnus is. I die really fast. Any tips?

i understand your post to mean that the mixups are hard for you to block and once they get in they open you up. with spencer, block a hit or 2 and push block them out. after that you should have free movement with spencer’s zipline.
