    I need some opinions on this team I want to try out. It's...

    Frank West (shopping cart assist)
    Doctor Strange (eye of agomotto? assist)
    Morrigan (the assist that gives you meter?)

    I'm thinking of rolling with this team so if there's any problems with it or adjustments I could make let me know:)

    The biggest weakness I can see for your team is the inability to get in with Frank. Level 1 Frank is already one of the worst characters on point and neither of your assists will do anything to help alleviate that problem. If you're set on those three characters you'll most likely want to have Strange on point so you can use TAC's to get Frank to level 3 at least.

    In all honesty though, you're going to have to work to find the synergy for that team. On the surface none of them seem to mesh together particularly well.

    I'm not completely set on those characters if any I would be willing to switch out Frank so who could I replace him with?

    im trying to run iron fist, dante(weasel shot), strider(vajra) but it hasnt really been workin out too well.

    i like all 3 characters, but i feel iron fist is the weak spot, so i would drop him if anyone because i feel he needs a team built around him. other characters im somewhat interested in are magneto, vergil, nova. any advice?

    Was wondering what people think the best team order and assists are for Team DMC? (Dante/Trish/Vergil)
  • SlimeSlime Joined: Posts: 31
    I've been running a team with Nova (Centurion Rush) and Hawkeye (Triple Arrow). I've been rotating my line up and my 3rd character around becayse I'm not sure who is best for the team. I've tried:
    Wolverine (b) / Hawkeye (a) / Nova (b), I probably had the best result with this line up, but I don't really want to use Wolverine
    Trish (b) / Nova (b) / Hawkeye (a)
    Nova (b) / Hawkeye (a) / Dormammu (a)
    Nova (b) / Hawkeye (a) / Doctor Doom (a)
    Storm (b) / Hawkeye (a) / Nova (b)

    Can someone give me suggestions to help make a team of Nova and Hawkeye work?

    I suppose it depends on your goals. Hawkeye/Strange/Morrigan could be a really annoying harass/runaway team. Any teleporter + Bolts of Balthakk assist should be a ticket to success. Dark Harmonizer could help a Vergil on point since he's so meter hungry.

    Of those three, I would try going with Nova first. He's going to be the best candidate for capitalizing off of hard-knockdown Vajira assist hits. Also you might want to rethink Weasel Shot for Dante as I'm not sure that Nova will find it all that useful.

    Dante/Vergil/Trish. Dante works as a battery to build up meter for Vergil since a stocked Vergil can ToD anyone. Trish in the back because both characters will want to use Low Voltage to keep their teleport mix-ups safe.

    As stated in my last post, iam not very good execution wise, but i realy like my new team of Storm/Dr doom/Sentinel

    it seems like the team synergy is kinda good, but i cant decide on wich assist to use for Storm,
    also any tips on easy bread and butters for dr doom mid screen, all combos with Foot dive makes doom go to the other side of the screen ;(

    Ostensibly you're going to be running Storm on point so her assist is less of an issue. Generally Whirlwind is going to be your go-to unless you find yourself having a significant amount of trouble dealing with jump-ins.

    Unfortunately every decent Doom combo is going to rely on Foot Dive. The only other thing I can think of would be flight :m: :m: dash :m: :m: dash etc. which is significantly more difficult and does less damage. If you're determined to run Doom you're just going to have to grind it out. Depending on how you're using Doom, I can see Ryu being a decent alternative.

    I am going to run vergil/hawkeye/dorm. I wasn't sure though if taskmaster would be better instead of hawkeye for rushing?

    i kinda like characters with tri jumps , so ryu is a nono for me :(
    U don't happen to know the mid screen bnb for dr doom?
    Doesn't have to be 700k DMG , but all I do right now mid screen is foot dive , h , l , m, h ,s m,m, foot dive.
    From there doom goes to the other side of the screen :(

    So, I'm looking at a team of Hawkeye-quickshot/Taskmaster-parabolic/Nova-strike.

    The way I see this working, task assist to cover normal jumps, hawkeye to cover the ground, nova for gtfo wallbounce.

    Play lames with hawkeye, a mix with task, and rushdownwith nova as anchor. Does anyone see any glaring issues with this team?

    Hey all!

    I'm new to this game, though I've had experience in competitive fighting games before (Super Smash Bros. Yep. Have a good laugh :-p). I know this'll be a lot tougher to learn for me, but I want to get to know this game well. So having watched this game a lot while having very little technical knowledge, I picked out a team:

    Zero (I don't know which assist to use)
    Amaterasu (Cold Star)
    Wesker (Samurai Edge)

    Any break down of the weaknesses and strengths present here would be very helpful. I should have the game in the next week or so to start hammering out the basics (though I have to think about stick vs controller first. I've heard it's preference, but I've also heard the XBox 360 controller isn't very good).

    Thanks a bunch!

    What do you guys think of Taskmaster/Raccoon/Hawkeye? I call it team Lord of the Rings. Taskmaster who is Aragorn(good with sword/shield and can shoot arrows), raccoon as gimli(tiny awesome dude) and obviously Hawkeye as Legolas. Does this team actually have potential? Also how is Chun Li/Doom/Phoenix for a phoenix team?

    So practically I have been following a lot of tournies/streams for ultimate marvel vs capcom 3. And there is a pattern that I have noticed when it comes to those who win compared to those who don't, simplicity. What I mean by this is the characters that usually win are those that do not need to by stylish in a form of 50-60 hit combos but instead can do 15-25 hits with more damage ie, nemesis, vergil, ghost rider, ryu, and of course the amazing wesker and many more. One that I was noticing was Captain America. He seems so amazing right now, especially now that he has that otg he looks great. Right now my team is ghost rider, dante, and vergil. I was thinking about replacing dante with Captain America. Would you consider that a better trade?...a worse trade?...an even trade?...why? The only thing I am worry about however, is the fact that compared to dante captain america needs some meter to preform meaning that my anchor (vergil) will not have much meter with his amazing level 4 (insta kill anyone in the cast with a little combo). But lets face it...charging star assist is pretty freaking sick.

    If I do use captain america...would my team completely change?...would there be a point to keep ghost rider?...how would you set the lineup?

    wesker, spencer, vergil...anyone with some sort of teleport/high mobility ability that benefits from x-factor greatly...also take under consideration that since your going to be using most of your meter on nova for his combos that the anchor can not be meter dependent like dark phoenix or strider (level 3 bores with x-factor)

    Can I have your thoughts on my awesome team? I call it Team Mean Green Machine (Also in blue or black). It consists of Spencer (armor peircer), Hulk (anti-air), and Chris (gun-fire). The team's special characteristic is to stop or destroy other people's assists quickly. There are two ways it can do that: Chris' gunfire can hit two people while Spencer moves towards them; the other way is Spencer's Bionic Lancer into Gamma Crush. Gamma Crush is almost invincible (because of Wesker and Taskmaster), but if an assist (with 1mill) is caught in these two hypers, they will be destroyed. Team Hyper (Bionic Lancer, Gamma Rock, Grenade Launcher) causes 700k. Thanks for reading!

    Okay everybody, Im fairly new to the competitve scene and would like to compete, but not use a cookie cutter team, like the trench coat trio (went against 13 teams of them) and others. When ultimate came out i became fascinated with Vergil. Hes not top teir but he is very fun and was easy for me to learn some of his beginner and moderate combos right off the bat. So i kind of based a team around him. My previous team was Vergil(t), Deadpool(b), and Akuma(b). Didnt really work because Vergil needs meters duh lol. I became 9thlord and now i cant get anywhere lol. Today I tried out two different teams Hulk(a), Vergil(a), Wesker(b) and CA(b), Vergil(b), Doom(a). Hulk just for his vitality and trying to get that damage in and build some meter getting ready for Vergil, and Wesker well because hes wesker lol. And the next Ive found CA has alot more consistancy for me than dante does he may not get 20-50 combo but his 15 -20 does almost as much. I also tried Dooms plasma beam assist solely for Vergils mix-up its actually been doing quite well just not there yet. Vergil is my best character the only one im not willing to drop Im just looking for synergy and how to help Vergils mobility issue without assists. Any and all feed back would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Picked up umvc3 recently and finally have decided my team. I'm fairly new in some aspects, but I know a decent amount just by watching a lot of videos and having a small in the lab time, plus just knowing how to block and situational stuff from playing a decade of mvc2.

    My team is: Zero, Vergil, Dante - With dante being my anchor.

    My question is, what would be the best assists for this team? I'm pretty sure I'll be using vergils Y rapid slash, but the other 2 I'm not too sure.
    <RisuRisu> those girls are pretty and yet the sluttiness makes it feel so wrong

    Hey all, long time reader, but first post.

    I've been trying really hard to come up with a team that lets me run Shuma-Gorath on point, and I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on or could help with the rest of the team. Right now I'm working with Shuma(ray)/Chris(landmine)/Sent(drones). I like the assist synergy, but the DHC opportunities feel sub-par, though it's very likely that I'm missing something. Any help or character suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Between these characters, can anybody suggest a couple teams with this "synergy" you speak of?

    Iron Man
    Spider-Man
    Ghost Rider
    Phoenix Wright
    Strider
    Modok
    Viewtiful Joe
    Rocket Raccoon
    Nova
    Doctor Strange

    I don't usually play my main team (Deadpool/Taskmaster/Spencer) using assists much, but that's something I want to do more with a new team.

    Having some trouble putting together this Vergil team. I wanna play him second with a good battery in front so I can build a bunch a meter and do silly sword/DT stuff w/ Vergil. Currently I have it set up as Battery/Vergil/horizontal assist, the only hard part is trying to find a battery character that suits my style.

    I'd be grateful if someone could toss a suggestion or two.

    Jam Session assist provides Ghost Rider very important vertical coverage. Also your DHC options from Ghost Rider to Dante are going to be better in general. While it's true that Captain America does great damage, Dante has significantly better mobility and meter generating ability. If you have the execution to pull off his combos, there is no reason not to use Dante. If you're finding the execution barrier too daunting to tackle, then you could pick up Cap.

    In vanilla I used Haggar as a battery for a while, even if he was better as a main assist. It seems like they made him better on point to compensate for the assist nerf, so I'd say he's a great option now. The pipe fits all styles :D

    That's a pretty restrictive list but if nothing else you'll at least get a unique team out of it. Something like Nova / MODOK / Strider could work, or Rocket / Iron Man / Strange. That second team lacks a good anchor though. Dieminion has shown Joe / Strange to work very well, and you could throw Nova in the third slot for a decent anchor.

    You could try Wesker/Vergil/Hawkeye, it seems like it'd be a strong team.
