I started to play as Omen yesterday. My biggest issue with him is the lack of overhead attacks, i dont really know what to do when the enemy is crouching and blocks.
Things i tried:
- Use throws, but thats really risky and hard to do. The AI/Shadows reacts instantly for every throw with a cancel, and an experienced player can read easily what i want to do everytime when he is crouching.
- Use Shadow Form to mix up the direction of the stance, but thats not always working (AI reacting superfast, player can react to that too) and it needs one shadow meter which is a chore everytime the enemy is crouching.
- Demonic Despair: It needs 3 shadow meters and its very risky, not a good plan at all.
Im training against LVL500 Shadow mostly, and almost all the time i fail because i have no idea what to do against crouching enemies. There are some shadows who basically cannot be attacked, because they are defending everything superfast, even if im mixing up everything i have in my disposal, and the only way to damage them is to wait for an opening, basically a mistake the AI makes. Only tried 1 multiplayer match (im in a recovery because of a few humiliating matches yesterday, lol)
