    Hey all! I was referred to this thread through the Metagames forum (and Jeff Winters) and thought I'd let you all know about something we are trying at the local Best Buy here in Springfield on Monday when MvC3 officially launches.

    We will be having a midnight launch event for the game and are planning on trying a tournament out at 10pm that night until the game launches. I do have the ability to give out Best Buy gift cards as prizes but will need to see what kind of turnout we have before I can commit to an amount!

    It will be fun regardless so if you are planning on heading out to pick up your game that night just leave Meta about 10 minutes before they close and head over to Best Buy to play some games and maybe win a prize before you pick up your game.

    Also, we will be at VisionCon and are planning on hosting a MvC3 tournament on February 18 at around 9pm in our gaming suite we will be hosting there all weekend. Stop by and check it out!

    Thanks for your time guys. Look forward to meeting you there!

    What about a free copy of the game for the system of the winners choice?

    Just in case anyone checks this in the next hour or so, there won't likely be a ranbat tonight, but we will be playing MvC3, so if you've taken care of your V-Day plans or are happily/miserably single today, come out and get some MAHVEL on!

    Good games tonight at Meta and at the Best Buy tourney. Props to Alex for pulling out those wins. Though I completely forgot about a move Super-Skrull has that would've been a perfect counter for all the Sentinel shenanigans. Oh well, what can ya do. Enjoy the $30 gift card, brah!

    Good games, guys. None of that stuff I did will ever work again, so I'm going to hop into the hyperbolic time chamber over the weekend.
  • drunkninja42drunkninja42 My Little CvS Joined: Posts: 1,697
    Alright, MvC is out, I know we're all playing it, one question for everyone though: How do you think we should manage the ranbats from here on out? As far as points, I do want to keep the games themselves separate. But as far as schedule goes, does everyone want to do a weekly rotation, stick with MvC3 or SSF4 for a while, etc.? Thoughts?

    Do 2 tourneys each night - 1 for each game. If we have 4 setups, this shouldn't be a problem, as long as we start near 7:30.

    Oh boy. 2 tourneys in one night. Guess I better get back on SSF4 as well. No more messing around with Ibuki. All viper from here on out. Too many games to play. I'm using Trish/storm/morrigan btw if anyone is curious. Team fly or Double D's as Zana would say. Viper on MVC will not work for me. My muscle memory kicks in when I do stuff with her. I tried to faint a burning kick lol.

    Sounds good, I'll give that a shot this Monday.

    Gotta find a way to deal with that damn Wesker, lol. Well, just need to get my execution down in general. So many failed mirage feint crossups and random tenderizers with Skrull due to mashing:wonder:

    I'm worried about the time we'll spend button checking. Is everyone using the same button layout? I think mine is different so you guys will hate me for having to set it up before each match.

    M H S
    L A1 A2
  • RavingGreenRavingGreen Strictly Viper Joined: Posts: 44
    That reminds me of blazblue layout. Some characters have use for buttons S + L. So my layout is:

    L M H
    S A1 A2

    As long as your don't have chars that use those two buttons, else I would like to see how those buttons as the same time.

    Nobody is going to mind if you have to change the buttons, dude. ^^

    I know, but it's going to get annoying, at least for me, during casuals and stuff. Are the majority of the people using Sang's layout? I'll give that a try this weekend and see if it works for me.
  • WardenWarden RICHARDS!!! Joined: Posts: 240
    That's kind of the "default" for playing on sticks. If you change the control scheme to Beta, that's what you get.

    Unless you're on an MvC stick, like me. Seriously, it puzzles me how they totally did not design one of the defaults to map to that stick :/

    But yeah, the layout Sang posted is the default for the game.

    All I have to do now is figure out how to play MVC3. And choose a team. And get some actual combos down. And learn to spam assists.
  • Electric_GypsyElectric_Gypsy 40th Successor to Bushinryu Joined: Posts: 99
    Just started to dig into MvC really good this morning, been running Spidey (Web Ball)/Wesker (Samurai Edge)/Iron Man (Unibeam) and Viper (Seismo)/Storm (Whirlwind)/Doom (Rocks).

    In team 1, I use Wesker's assist to set up OTG Maximum Spider, and use Unibeam to cover Web Zip approaches or Wesker teleports. Team 2 is basically all about giving Viper time and cover to approach and build meter for Storm, and DHC into Hailstorm.

    Any opinions on these teams and how I can improve them? I'd like to get pretty decent so I can take a Monday off and bring some game to one of these tournaments.

    Sounds like a pretty solid gameplan there. Shoot me an invite if you're online sometime and I'll play you a bit.

    I have been using layout beta since it leaked and it has been useful for my Wolverine. Oh and WTF with all these people trying to pick up wolverine? Seriously...

    Sang your team is Double D's

    Lately I've been thinking of using X-23 instead of storm. In terms of combo X-23 feels more natural to me than storm. However, without air dash I feel like I can't get around very well. I tried hoping around and got smacked with hyper and projectiles. I'll see how I do tonight with Storm on the team.
  • zenkixzenkix Joined: Posts: 59
    For what it's worth, I discovered that I like Wolverine by accident. I heard about Justin raping a couple days after. lol

    I managed to get used to the default controls. Well worth the hour of frustration that it took.
  • WardenWarden RICHARDS!!! Joined: Posts: 240
    Let's see - Wolverine does sick damage, is really fast, can pass through projectiles.....and bottom line, he's just really fun to play. Him and X-23 have the "I hit the button and they get cut instantly" feel to their combos. Wolvie has more life than X-23, and his combos are a bit easier, I think. He's got fewer mixups, no insane command grab, and no good OTG xx Hyper combo, but I think Berserker Charge more than makes up for his downfalls.

    Oh and he can 100% Sentinel with LMH M.Barrage Xfactor M.Barrage ad nauseum instant overhead with j.S or j.L with all other characters.

    Good games to everyone.

    Next week, I promise I have your number, Clint.
  • WardenWarden RICHARDS!!! Joined: Posts: 240
    Dude, your whole team was solid....sick use of assists to prolong your Wesker combos. Tron was a nightmare when she hit me, but I think I can deal with her......but Phoenix man, wow. I'm going to have to figure out what is possible against her.

    Great fights though, this game is the next level of hype.

    When you switched to Deadpool, I was really confident that I had it. I was not expecting you to be so solid with so many characters. Doom is a disaster waiting to happen for me. You would not let things just go with him. It was a lot of fun playing against you at such a high level of play already, and that goes for everyone I was up against.

    Next week, I'm going to be rocking that team even harder, so watch out.
  • WardenWarden RICHARDS!!! Joined: Posts: 240
    Deadpool is super annoying, but he also can do some sick damage off his combos. After I left I decided he earned a permanent spot on my team, hehe. Chris didn't really do me any favors, though. Doom is great because he can switch playstyles from rushdown to zoning at the drop of a hat.

    There are too many good characters in this game, it's really hard to focus on just 3. Can't wait to see what you'll pull out next monday.

    Let's see how I do next week with X-23 on my team instead of storm. Also, do we have a day on a second hookup?

    I haven't heard anything yet, I think Dennis is still getting info.

    Btw, I should have updated ranking info up tonight, been busy these last few nights.
  • drunkninja42drunkninja42 My Little CvS Joined: Posts: 1,697
    ...And I realized last night that I left the laptop at Meta, lol. I'll have to run by and see if they have it today.

    ...And I forgot while I was at work. Eh, at this point, I might as well leave it up there for next Monday and update everything then.

    So who is going to Evo?
    Sang
    Torrey
    ???

    I would like to split a room.

    I would like to split a room.

    So far just us, but my plans still aren't solid yet. I'm definitely down for splitting a room. I know Clint wants to go, but last I talked to him, he still wasn't sure if he'd be able to. I'm definitely in if we can get at least 3 of us together to split a room. Considering the rooms are substantially cheaper this year anyway (the amount split between Clint and I last year is around the same as the total cost of the room this year), this should make things far more doable. If we plan for getting there the 28th and leaving on the 1st, the cost would be $416 (before taxes and any other fees) for the room according to the site. So if everyone shares a room, with 3-4, that's be $139-$104 per person. And if you get airfare from Allegiant right now, it's $160 or so each way on those days (after fees and such), so around $450 or so for the trip (excluding costs for entering the tourney, food, etc). Pretty reasonable.

    Personally, I'd like to make some solid plans with everyone fairly soon, just to be sure I can get off work, get the rooms and flights booked, and have everything ready to go.

    I was thinking more like 3 nights Thursday Friday and Saturday and leave on Sunday I looked and it was 347 for the room.

    Maybe we can see when some guys from KC are going and try and get a group rate airfare or something.

    If you can find some good airfare for Sunday, I might be able to leave then. I just wouldn't want to miss finals. I know last year finals ran well into Sunday night. All of us just wound up staying up and sleeping on the flight back in the morning.

    And yeah, I'm up for seeing what the KC guys are doing, we hung out quite a bit last year anyway.

    Alright folks, after much delay, I have our current MvC3 ranbat standings!

    To get it all out of the way:

    Week 1 Top 8:
    1: Warden (Clint)
    2: Alex
    3: Josh
    4: Sang
    5: Masaki
    5: Sala
    7: R. Swain
    7: DrunkNinja (Torrey)

    And Week 2 Top 8:
    1: Warden (Clint)
    2: Alex
    3: Sala
    4: Sang
    5: Zenkix (Aniel)
    5: Josh
    7: Tom
    7: DrunkNinja (Torrey)

    So that puts our current standings as such:

    1: Warden (Clint) - 14pts
    2: Alex - 10pts
    3: Josh - 6pts
    3: Sala - 6pts
    3: Sang - 6pts
    4: Masaki - 2pts
    4: Zenkix (Aniel) - 2pts
    4: DrunkNinja (Torrey) - 2pts
    5: R. Swain - 1pt
    5: Tom - 1pt

    Lots of tied places, but that should even out soon.

    ^ Isn't that the Magneto infinite in MVC2? I don't know how to do that.....

    I can do two different Mag combos in 3. I'll show you the timing on them though, np.
