im really liking bane so far. i feel like hes a grappler who really relies on momentum. you pressure your opponent with a safe block string like down 1 xx double punch. train them to block that and get them with command grab. with venom he can easily get 30%- 50 percent combos along with armored properties on his specials. his down back 1 air grab is awesome anti air in my opinion one of the best. just be careful with the debuffs of his trait.
ya, I tried picking up bane when the game came out, I lasted about 2 hours before I gave up… Tom Brady assures people that Bane is good so take comfort that if Bane doesn’t seem good so far, odds are that you might be missing something.
The number 1 thing that turns me off about Bane is that nearly ALL of his knock downs either space the opponent half to nearly full screen or he has little to no frame advantage to put on and kind of pressure.
In the second category we have Shoulder Tackle and his Command Grab
after either of these specials, it seems like the best option is to use the venom and go for an armored special in hopes of blowing through normals :-/
Been playing Bane cause he’s one of my favorite villains ever and I really want to main him. I’ve been doing pretty well til tonight. Gt totally destroyed by Sinestro. He kept dropping meteors on me and restraints when I dashed. I got in a few times, be he ran, rinsed and repeated. What should I have done? I just couldn’t get in on him?
