Eric Myers
Quantum Ranger

Introduction

Health: 1100
Walk Speed: - forward, - back

Eric Myers developed a disdain for the upper class of Silver Hills from an early age, seeing how the rich would always sneer at him simply for being poor. However, his low class consciousness caused him to only seek the betterment of his own position rather than questioning the system of class itself, which led to him joining the town's privately-owned police force, and eventually gaining the powers of the Quantum Ranger and the Q-Rex. Yet he has not eased his suffering at the hands of the bourgeoisie. He needs more power.

Overview

Eric is a well rounded character with simple tools that often hide a lot of trickery. Sporting excellent mobility and a solid projectile in his 5S Blaster, his neutral largely consists of controlling space and frustrating the opponent into coming to him, where he can pull out the secondary functions on many of his tools in order to throw opponents off guard. He really shines as a support character, often tagging in to extend a combo into his highly potent Quantum Power sword loops, giving any team consistent access to high damage combos that quite often lead to a kill.

10x4, 20 High/Low/Air - - - -

Eric tosses his sword up into the air, where it spins in place for a brief period of time. Often used in lieu of a normal launcher in combos, as it causes a special combo state that locks the opponent in place, making it extremely easy to convert from. The angle it flies up at can also give it some use as a meaty on incoming opponents.

Faster than EX Attack, making it a little more reliable as a reversal, but far less damaging. Forces a character switch on hit; knocks down if only one character remains.

Unlike most Swap Strikes, Eric's has a unique animation: a jumping side kick.

Combos

Quantum Power Loop Theory

Eric's combos largely revolve around converting into a corner loop of [5M > 5H > 6H]xN while Quantum Power is active. The most common way to convert into Quantum Power is by carrying your opponent to the corner, and then doing...

...5SSSSS > H+S > 5M > 4S > jump back j.H...

Where you go from here depends on whether or not you've used a wall bounce and/or your OTG bounce.

If your j.H will wall bounce, dash back after j.H to maintain the corner, then OTG with 6H and transition into the loop.

If your OTG 6H will ground bounce, delay 5H after and transition into the loop.

All QP combos should be ended with Finish Sequence (QP EX), as it is essentially free and deals great damage.

Solo

all combos tested and working as of version 2.0

5L > 5M > 2M > 5H > 4S > [j.L > j.M]x2 > j.L > j.H > 5M > 5H > 6S~H > 2M > 2H > 6S~H > [4H > 6S~H]x2 > 5SSSSS > H+S > QP loop

Standard solo confirm into QP loop, should give you an idea of how to get them going.

2L > 5M > 2M > 5H > 4S > 5[S] > 6H > 2L > 5M > 5H > 6S~H > j.L > j.M > 5M > 2M > 5H > 6S~H > 2L > 5M > 2M > 4S > late j.H > land 6S~H > [4H > 6S~H]x2 > 5SSSSS > H+S > QP loop

Slightly more elaborate combo if you really need to build the two bars needed for QP solo. Has the benefit of leaving you with no ground or wall bounces, so you can transition directly into the main loop. Works on everyone except Doggie midscreen, but is highly character specific in the corner to the point of impracticality. More for show than anything. video example
