Since there is no topic about the best partner for Nina in this sub forum, I decided to make one.

Nina is my main character but when TTT2 hits consoles, I would like to be prepared with a second character aswell. I've been using Lei, Xiao and Anna besides Nina but I'm also open for any other not so used character. Is it just wise to pick Anna because they share a similar move set, or should I pick an other character that doesn't have the same weaknesses as Nina.

Please reply with an explanation.

Great topic!

I would say, use your second best character, no matter what, as your second. Nina/Ganryu? Sure! Wang/Nina? Go for it! Mix it up and have lots of fun!

Anna/Nina isn't completely wise because of the whole rage requiring MORE hits for activation. If you can get past that and sacrifice your rage then go for it.
Personally these will be my 4 teams:
Nina/JC
Nina/Anna
JC/Ling
Anna/JC

Chreddy's standing 3,4 should be a great combo filler, I agree. That wall combo that only_practice does with Lars looks sick.

News to me, Galen. Why would you need MORE hits to get rage if they are more compatible? Oh wait, it is a Japanese game.

Because the sisters hate each other which is why it takes 128 hit points for the latter to be in rage mode and vice versa

Nina and eddy like each other a lot hence why it takes 100 hit points for the latter to be in rage mode and vice versa

Have you looked at the allegiance thread lately.

In all honesty, use your secondary character for Nina's tag partner. If you don't have a secondary character, then go solo If you don't like solo then find a secondary that suites your style.

Keep in mind all the characters that aren't listed are at ZERO.

Thanks for all the feedback. I think I'm gonna use Anna since she seems to fit me the most out of the three. Also, they're both hot as hell

Bruce, Wang, Eddy, Lili, Devil Jin, Feng, Hwoarang, Lee Chaolan, and Paul are my frontrunners.

I will pick every character at some point. I will be curious about the new characters like Jun, Ogre, Jaycee and Jinpachi Mishima. Mokujin is going to take time to prepare for!

Edit: Just realized that I put Bruce as my most likely partner. I keep telling myself that I will drop Bruce in Tag 2 because it took way too long to get my Bruce promoted while my Christie, Wang and Lili got to Overlord, Savior and Conqueror in the meantime, respecively. My Devil Jin is my only Mishima that I got to Juggernaut and STAYED at Juggernaut. My Heihachi got there but keeps getting demoted. My Heihachi currently sits at Warrior, gonna drop Heihachi, he looks the same from the Tag 2 vids I saw. My Feng is a respectable Vanquisher, the rank just above Juggernaut. I mained Hwoarang in DR, thinking about using him again, but the lag online killed my Hwoarang combos in T6...I will only use Hwoarang if I feel like I can do everything I want to do. Lee has the wall carry and in Tekken 6 I got him to Juggernaut, although I lost like 4 promotion chance matches to get him to Vanquisher. Paul is Juggernaut and is fun and easy. I have Bryan and Asuka at Juggernaut, as well, my Bob got demoted one to Vindicator.

Wang feels right. I think my team will be Wang and Nina. I try not to use the Capos, but I will probably use Eddy, too. I feel like I am cheating, almost, when I use Capos. I feel like Namco really needs to nerf the shit out of them!

With Anna you will not get rage as fast as with other characters.

I think in Tag 1 Anna was as compatible with Nina as the Law and Paul team, am I right? It is a weird decision from Namco-Bandai.

I don't think the rage stuff should matter that much. I still don't even know why there was ever a need to include a love/hate system like this in the game.

I suppose Zafina and Anna would work better if the rage system is taken into consideration.

Rage is HUGE in Tekken 6. I don't see what would make TTT2 very much different.

I was watching this and I saw Asuka do b+3,4,3~Tag, in comes Asuka's partner and it takes away red life! I saw you post in the Asuka section Galen, I bet you are thinking, "After that Tag in, Nina can go right into iWS+1s!"

I agree, the compatibility matters. Tekken is not all combos. You are not going to always eat a Tag Crash combo or Tag Assault or whatever the hell it's called, lol.

Yeah, I really might pick her up. I have lots of second thoughts though, because it's very hard to play Asuka against better people when just playing the "solid" game of low risk high reward. I was talking to some of the better Asuka players and they were telling me that you really have to rely on reads and crushing. Her punishment is kind of ass since you can't launch at i15. (Which is fine with me cause that means I can d+2,3 against her without fear of losing 50% LOL) But yeah, that's what turns me off of her.

Really? I think rage can definitely change the outcomes of matches in T6 but usually, I don't see it as something that powerful. It's not like x-factor or anything. Just a small boost in damage output.

On the other hand, rage has definitely been powered up in TTT2 and it occurs more often so maybe I'm wrong.
