    Haha that was a nice setup. Didn't expect my opinion to be popular in a competitive fighting game site. I firmly believe that this game has the most arse returns for time invested playing it.

    the numbers are on your side, it's not really that weird
    fchamp not having won these last 2 evos says that much

    i think fighting games are really like that overall ultimately though- and that's a strength of the medium
    it seems like once you hit a certain baseline you can refresh yourself very quickly for pretty much any game as long as it hasn't literally been years since you've played
    mvc3 just happens to be one of the simplest in terms of 'refreshing' because of the ease of execution in both technical and gameplan terms

    Someone I talk to compared this game to a dying grandmother

    and we're all going to stay by its death bed until the day it flatlines

    Meanwhile, we've got other people asking us why we're neglecting family/trying new games and simply moving on from this desiccated husk of a person, and all we can respond with is, "When's Marvel"
    optimized ghost rider team? more like unoptimized dormammu/doom shell. And his patterns were filled with mistakes

    Fixed

    I mean, you could get Top 8 with just Dormammu/Doom alone. Hell, Dormammu/Doom shell won EVO, why are people surprised it made Top 8 at Shadaloo Showdown? Fact of the matter is, optimized Ghost Rider isn't supposed to deal damage but to build meter instead. If he can do that and find himself backed up by half decent assists, there's not a whole lot to worry about. Especially if other players don't know the MU.

    Seriously, how often did that other guy use Magnetic Blast? Or did he ever bother to think about how little Plasma Beam was helping out against a character who can outright ignore projectiles with one move while calling in the combo breaker assist of choice?

    Well in the set I saw he'll spire did Jack. He tried to counter call and got double blasted by Doom. The Magneto was a pussy is all. I like the Grandma analogy btw.

    True, I also think that's one of the many reasons VF my favorite game I never play has issues keeping people. At the mid level of play it's almost an academic pursuit. The newest attempted to make it more friendly but nope. There's a fine line between making a game a whore and a prude. Good luck keeping a whore faithful but at least you can get it. A prude? You ain't getting shit unless you come right.

    my issue is that they require you to commit to activating swords upon landing right after the helm breaker whether it hits or not. But if you happen to activate anyway when it hits, they're definitely good to have.

    This also means you won't get the bonus speed boost from being in Devil Trigger when you X-factor.

    That's a little harsh. At least there weren't 14 fullscreen video ads in front of his post.

    It is and optimizing it to an extent actually matters with certain teams. I'm playing morrigan/vergil/strider and vergil/morrigan/strider. Even if I'm starting morrigan, if I'm landing hits then in order to kill I need to DHC to vergil which will leave him on point for the next incoming. The DT version really doesn't do that much damage in XF1 and you don't build meter during it. There is a problem here with committing to swords as kai pointed out. I also don't know how I feel about round trip combos in XF on all the various character sizes. It seems like it might actually take some degree of attention or timing, when the current standard XF1 combo is super clean and easy. I'll have to mess around with it in the lab.

    Vergil xf1 with DT can kill Thor as long as you have strider or a beam.

    What's your xf1 combo for these situations:

    Helm breaker with 0 bars.
    Helm breaker with 1 bar.
    Vajra knockdown with 1 bar.

    Life advancement is the shit. I keep wanting to bring my crew to the scene but we all like X factored at once in our careers. Hitting 6 digits was a benchmark but what I'm looking at now is almost double where I was. One of my boys shiiiiet.

    Best watched at .25 or .5 speed because I couldn't even see how he crossed him up until I slowed it down and saw it.
