    Gotta find you that clip of a thc getting stuffed with a jab >>

    I agree with you, it looks like you can NEVER do naked hypers unless you're fullscreen... seems like it was intentional.

    Also note that Viper is different, hers DO seem to have invulnerability

    Haha, I gotta see that.
    I think X-23's cartwheeling hyper may have some. I recall killing two characters during a fullscreen THC with that, don't remember the exact scenario though. It would restore my faith in Capcom if it was deliberate, get punished hard for being a dick. Unless you're Storm, in which case she flys away and makes it rain.

    I played a lot of Viper today and I agree. The one where she bangs her two thunder knuckles together then dashes has some invincibility during the dash part I think. Not 100% sure though, I was combo'ing into them because they were piss easy to hit confirm.

    I notice 'cuz marn won that Vegas event because it worked. He mashed out the ultra SF4 style at least twice, and it worked both times.

    Certain ones will have invulnerability and others won't. We will have to wait and see. Shulkie's sunday driver better as should Haggar's abortion punch.

    It'll be a bit weird if Hyper Charging Stars doesn't have invincibility, too.

    I've seen that stuffed with a jab.

    I think its safe to assume that you'll not be safe from a jab OR a response hyper unless you know for sure otherwise.

    Pushing this so hard because if it's true, its a really important thing to get through your head right away.

    I got the same results as Stabby regarding Hypers. The second Hyper beat out the first every single time, assuming it was in range to hit. To answer that second question for Zero. The startup of Rekkouha has no invulnerability. I definitely got slapped out of the move. Not long after I spotted a Dante player that just sword swiped him out of the animation.

    There's an achievement that involves playing in an 8 player lobby, so it's implied.. Although there's really no news on any of the game modes.

    How much delay is there when DHCing? Not in terms of super freeze, but any real game time that passes.

    I'm thinking of a hypothetical where you try to DHC out of a whiffed or nondamaging hyper into a hyper grab.

    MvC Newb Question about picking teams

    Is there a general guideline to follow when picking who is on your team? I know in 2 it was kind of overwhelming for me anyway to decide who to pick and which assist type to go with.

    She-Hulk

    - Is Her level 3 (sunday driver) a throw? Is it 0 frame?
    It's a Throw with good range you can only react to it when you hear the hyper 3 sound and you can jump out but the car will still ride across the screen and can hit you.

    team picking is a huge, extremely difficult subject.

    Essentially the quickest way to start is to pick a character you like and figure out what you need to fill out your characters lack.

    For example, take Felicia. She's a rushdown character with extremely poor air options. The things she needs are some good AA and something to cover her approach and mixups. So the first thing I look at to support her is a good AAA.

    Right now people believe the best AAA's are ryu's and Morrigans. Looking at those 2, I think about how I wnana play and what felicia provides them in return. The main things Felicia GIVES are her low assist and meter charging (but the latter isnt' that practical or useful). Ryu benefits greatly from meter, but is generally considered a poor character, and doesn't have many good overhead options. Morrigan on the other hand, has an 8way air dash, which leads to the most common unblockable setups in the game.

    From this I get that Morrigan helps Felicia greatly, and Felicia helps Morrigan greatly. Now I have the beginnings of a team, and I can consider what that team lacks/needs. What it needs is some good screen coverage, and what it lacks is ranged options (It's generally considered a poor idea to have all of your characters have similar playstyles, like all rushdown, as you're susceptable to hard counters).

    Currently the screen coverage/approach assists that are considered the best are Dr. Doom's rocks and Amaterasu's cold star. In addition, both of these characters have plenty of gameplay options and are good for runaway/fullscreen play. They'd both make an excellent third partner for Felicia/Morrigan. However, I have a particular strategy in mind for felicia, and I want an assist that really occludes the screen and makes it hard to see what's going on. For this reason, I'm planning on using Dormammu for my third, since you can't see what happens behind his Dark hole at all. Ammy would also be a good choice for that.


    That's pretty complex, but it should give you at least an idea of some of the thought processes involved in picking a team >>

    The X-factor question is still 'in the air' (forgive me)... Kanta-kun said you could, but we still haven't seen any actual examples of it in film, and he got a few other things wrong as well. You couldn't in old builds.

    As for viper I wanna know that too :P

    I don't have citation for these, but for what it's worth I pretty much only listen to Seth, Keits and UltraDavid...

    Amaterasu
    - What are the properties of the different colors of Solar Flare, is it just a graphical difference?
    One counters attacks, the other projectiles
    - Can you do Cold Star when not in bead stance
    No

    Arthur
    - Under what circumstances does his armor break, and is he at a disadvantage while in boxers?
    When the timer runs out on Gold Armor. He takes HUGE damage in boxers.

    Deadpool
    - How exactly do you do Pineapple! ?
    Press a button during Trigger Happy.
    - Does the Katanarama! Assist OTG?
    Yes

    Magneto
    - Can you mash out of Hypergrav?
    I believe Keits and UltraDavid said no

    She-Hulk
    - Is Her level 3 (sunday driver) a throw? Is it 0 frame?
    It's unblockable, but, iirc UltraDavid said it's not 0 frame. If it whiffs the car still drives by and can hit.

    Spider-Man
    - Can you combo out of the Wall bounce after Crawler Assault?
    Only with KFC

    Wesker
    - How is his heatlh considering he's a rushdown character?
    Consensus seems to be a little below average

    Yeah, in retrospect we could have been clearer about this. Once the "super flash" ANIMATION starts, you're caught, you can't jump. But it did seem like Keits jumped out on reaction to the distinctive level3 super activation SOUND that comes immediately before the animation. I'm not sure that's really the case, it might have been more that Keits jumped out of my super because he knew I was going to do it then. We'll just have to test this more when we get our hands on it again.

    team picking is a huge, extremely difficult subject. etc.

    Good stuff.

    What's funny and all is, that over here (Holland) most peeps are very new to VS games and tend to pick a team of 3 characters that they just like.

    You can add another event to the calender btw:

    Heavy attacks in the air

    Hi everyone :) I'm new here and this is my first thread. I was just wondering, do Heavy attacks in the air cause a knockdown, or is it only the neutral Exchange button in the air that causes a knockdown?

    No heavy attacks don't cause knockdown, yes neutral exchange knocks down.

    I'm wondering how the hyper screen works for the purposes of counter hypers. First of all I'd like to know if the hyper freeze screen accepts inputs. If it does do I have to time my hyper for the frame that the game comes back to action, or is there some overlap?

    quick question guys

    I'm brand new to the MvC3 scene (or any MVC game for that matter)

    will all the characters be unlocked at first, or do you go through story mode (or some other method) to unlock them???

    and if so, who will be the first unlocked characters??


    thanks
  • WindsagioWindsagio OG random Joined: Posts: 2,506
    from what we know, all but 4 will be unlocked at the start, the others should unlock really really quickly.
